I'm doing the Mr. Mom thing tonight so no games so far. But I thought I'd run the benchmarks. My hardware: X58 motherboard, 12GB RAM, i7-920 OCemail@example.comGhz, GTX 980SC, Win10/64.

I would definitely say, as the benchmarks see it, there were some very good improvements! Well done to the dev team!
However, I had some stability issues. I have had absolutely NONE since I first downloaded and started the game in version 0.63. Of course, that was Win7/64 and I only converted to Win10/64 this week. Regardless, the first time I tried to load the new version, having clicked on "Play" in the Steam Library list, the load hung. At least it took MUCH longer than I'd every seen it take. I used Task Manager to kill it, reloaded, and all was fine. I then ran the Full benchmark with no issues. However, at the end of the first time I ran the CPU benchmark the game just disappeared - crashed with no messages or information on my desktop. I just re-started it from the Steam Library, re-ran it, and all was well.
I wish I had some info as to the latter. But the performance has definitely ticked up! Looking forward to trying out actual gameplay changes when I get a chance!
