A full patch will be released sometime in the coming weeks. It will fix many of the other problems that have been reported on the DevastationGame.com Forums like server browser issues, miscellaneous gameplay issues, physics, and even audio problems.
NOTE: The issue that caused the poor performance is NOT an issue in the retail version of the game. It only appeared in the demo.
Simply run the .exe, point it to your Dev MP install folder and install it. Your demo version will be v.369 and you will be ready to play!
