Help with low framerate on some animations (adventure map).

So ive noticed how that "icon/star/circle" under heroes and monsters on the adventure map is sort of lagging on my PC (low framerate or something), same goes for the trees moving, and green water.
It looks as if its low framerate but for some reason some animations are natural. Like from buildings or units.

On my laptop which is weaker it doesnt lag like that at all. Any idea how to fix or what the problem is? I have read about limiting my machine to 3 ram for other fixes. I rather not do that at all.

In these threads above, it appears more people have this issue. I would like to know how to solve this properly. Can it be modded to work or something?

I'm offering this with zero confidence but since you don't have anything to lose: Why don't you give a try to the ReShade package I put together?

Thank you for at least trying. I will test it out and get back to you.

As far as I can tell. No it does not work. Sadly.

This is what I did to improve Heroes 5 performance, game runs a lot smoother with this tweak.
Run Command Prompt as Admin and apply these 2 commands:
bcdedit /set useplatformtick yes
bcdedit /set disabledynamictick yes

This is on Win10.

The second command can reduce latency but the first command is actually very problematic as it would force using HPET that would lead to increased latency.

I wouldn't touch it but in case anyone did, they can undo it by running the following command:

bcdedit /deletevalue useplatformclock

I didnt say platformclock, its platformtick which has nothing to do with HPET.

The first command up there forces Windows to use platformclock, which is the hardware clock on the motherboard, which is HPET.

You really should know what you're talking about before talking and giving recommendations.

Again, useplatformclock and useplatformtick are two different things.
Yes, if u enable platformclock HPET will turn on but I didnt mention that at all.
While useplatformtick enables timer that is used in Win7 and is less laggy, Win10 timer is more laggy/less responsive for "security reasons".
