Immense slowdown in Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney

Basically, I was wondering if there was a way to help with the frame drops and the game speed dropping. It mainly happens when 3d models are rendered during dialogue scenes and when characters talk during cutscenes. Depending on how many models there are it ranged from 50% to 13% speed with frames stopping at 35.
Besides that I’m getting around 115% speed and over 60fps. I have performance mode on for power and shut down a lot of useless background tasks but it really doesn’t help much. Set it to allow high resource usage in task manager which didn’t do much either.
