  29. Reduce runtime / increase achievable FPS

    Neys
    This is an experimental version, average users are encouraged to stay with version 2.7.4 by now.

    This version addresses the problem of FPS hits and stutters seen by many people especially with higher frame rates. This is done by parallelizing the app's calculation and AC's main loop, technically by automatically spawning an .exe file much like RSR Live Timing does.
