One of the most prominent parts of Infinite Wealth v1.16 arrives in the form of a temporary fix for players with specific GPUs, while work continues to make that change permanent. The case is directed toward especially those who observe “unintended frame rate drops that occur with some GPUs when it rains in-game.”

We are continuing to work with GPU vendors to resolve the issue. If you are using a fast CPU, you may be able to avoid the problem by using the following command line options: -options -disable_mt_render,” Ryu Ga Gotoku advises. 

The following is a rundown of some of the other fixes that the latest update has brought for Infinite Wealth. Feel free to head over to the post on the Steam Community handle for the full details though. 

  • Fixed a bug in which when selling multiple pieces of equipment with the same name, unselected equipment could become the target of sale.
  • Fixed a bug that prevents turns from progressing under certain conditions during Sujimon battles.
  • Implemented a method for resolving a problem-blocking event progression by saving and reloading a file.

In other news, Infinite Wealth has been doing well commercially over the course of its January 26, 2024, release, selling more than 1 million copies while becoming Ryu Ga Gotoku’s biggest Steam launch to date as well. eXputer rated the title 4.5/5.0 in its review, calling it the “most ambitious RPG of 2024,” and rightfully so.
