I've read a few other reports and threads around steam and on this site. There is no integrated gpu in my machine, so that is not the issue. After first encountering this horrendous UI, I updated all of my drivers and tried again. Nothing changed. I've tried changing around a few settings in-game (which takes a while since the mouse is nearly useless). The 3 processes for the game's 3rd party UI software have all been raised to maximum priority - this also was no help.
It was a long while back when I asked some friends if they had tried the game and they had told me it was impossible to play. I had hoped that the gold edition and the latest patch would be different but now I am experiencing all of the same problems that led my friends to never put any time into a game they had looked forward to for so long. The main menu seems to run under 12 FPS, despite my system fitting the Recommended specs, as well. So, even if I could use my mouse, I probably wouldn't be able to do much in game with such a horrible handicap.
Honestly, I don't expect a fix to this. Everyone else I see posting about this problem seems to have just given up, after being given the same workarounds spiel. What I am hoping to do is to give you notice that the situation was never resolved, people just ran out of patience. Maybe, in the future, this bug will cease to exist and I might return.
