Fire sprite (burning on NPCs) causing very low FPS (BGEE and BG2EE)
So I posted a reddit post, which I will link here if it's not breaking the rules :https://www.reddit.com/r/baldursgate/comments/3n3j9u/bgeebg2ee_terrible_performance_with_fire_sprite/
They suggested I post here, so here I am!
When playing both BGEE and BG2EE, my FPS plummets when there are characters 'on fire' - usually as a result of a fireball spell or Melf's Minute Meteors.
As soon as the burning effect disappears, my FPS returns to normal. I run BG on 45fps (because Waukeen's promenade)

I've done a check with other games - Witcher 3 on all low (yup, need an upgrade) gives me about 50-60fps, depending on where in the game I am. Most other games give me a comfortable 60fps.
