I've noticed important slowdown on my machine with the latest EU3 expansion, and i don't mean Paradox Connect slowdown, but graphic lag. So I've gone to work, and released a "faster fog". Turned out it wasn't much faster. So I got back to work and I modded out as much as I could.
Now, for those who have rather laggy computers, you can try this. I'm not sure it will be much of an improvement, but it will not be slower, that I promise .
There are two versions : the "fast" is probably a bit faster, and the "very fast" is even faster but the graphical quality is "noticeably" reduced.
How to install:
-Download the files
-Go to your EU Folder
-Go to Data/gfx/
-Rename the "FX" folder to "Original FX" or something like that
-copy the new file ( either FX fast or FX Veryfast )
-Rename the new file to FX

Images of the fast version ( notice the fog, the unit texture is less smooth )
Images of the very fast version ( no texture on political map, even less smoothness overall )
