Benchmark version 1.3.0 used to work just fine. 2.1.0 crashes on startup on all renderers.

Ryzen 5 1600X + RX 580, 16 GB RAM. Ran from SSD first and then HDD.

Since 2.0.0 the AVG antivirus no longer blocks any of the executables, so kudos for that.

The 2.1.0 hotfix worked wonders for my performance in comparison to 2.0.0, although I think it's not quite as good as 1.x versions, even though the unbound score blasts way past 33,333.

Speaking of which, the highest score I got in testing was 199,524, absolutely denying me the 200k! Still, I bet the scores you guys are receiving are much more useful than 1.x versions

I also noticed in several tests that the exploding fire particle effect ends in flat, harsh lines. I know it's just a test, but it looks kind of bad right now, just so you know.

Anyway, great moves; keep it up; proud of you.
