The shadows look worse with patch 7, than patch 4. They also draw themselves in a lot, and a line is sometimes noticeable. The shadows are also unplayable on "very high". The patch 7 high shadows give the same frame rate as the patch 4 very high shadows.

that line appears on all my machines with patch 4 through 7 (both amd and nvidia video) . it may appear without any patch at all.

lol, the game sometimes runs at less than 20 fps on my rig with very high shadows. I did used to think the shadows were done by the CPU, but I notice that it's the GPU which is being thrashed when they are enabled (at any resolution as well).
