Any frame-rate tips?


Recommended Posts

Hello All - I'm new to the game and this is my first post. Greetings!¬†ūüôā

 

I'm enjoying the game so far, but struggling to find the best settings for a good and stable frame rate. Any tips?

 

If I hit "default" on both Graphics and Terrain Detail Distance it swings wildly between 60fps (my max with v-sync on) and 20fps. But, so far, adjustments don't help much. What are the real frame-rate killers?

 

Many thanks!

Thanks for your reply! This is copied from my Task Manager:

I've no idea what most of that means...

There may be one bug that might cause wild swings particularly on your system. Other than that, the user's manual lists the various settings in descending order of their biggest influence in the framerate (for most), page 32 f.

 

An RTX2060 should generally perform rather decent, so my money would actually be on that particular bug which will be fixed with the next patch.

Thanks for the replies.¬†ūüôā

 

The more I play the game the more I realise you spend most of the time staring through a fuzzy TIS or a small window anyway. If you unbutton, stand up and admire the scenery, then a frame rate drop is the least of your problems.

I thought that too, but it all changes when you play online along with team.

I look forward to online play someday. I need to work out what I'm doing first!

 

What time zone are in?

 

I'm on EST time (Toronto Canada)

 

I'd be happy to setup a local server on my high speed fibre internet and try some small coop scenarios with you?

 

GibsonM has been running some training sessions on Saturdy evenings (6:00 pm my time), which is Sunday morning his time in Australia.

Cheers for the offer. I think I need many more hours before diving into online play, though!

 

I'm on GMT (London). Which would make GibsonM's sessions about midnight for me.

If you mean the usual BG sessions, they work out to be around 0830 GMT - as detailed in the posts:

BG ANZAC - 04 MAR 0830GMT (with TeamViewer support) - 4.250(v2)

Next meeting: 0830 GMT on Thursday, March 4th.

1630 in Perth

1800 in Darwin

1900 in Adelaide

1830 in Brisbane

1930 in Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra

2130 NZST in Auckland
