It started with the Bogenhafen beta. I was getting these brief slowdowns and stutters while traversing the map and FPS drops during hordes. I thought it was maybe just the new DLC maps but it was happening in all the maps. There’s nothing in particular that causes the slowdowns. I’ll be walking along, nothing graphically intense is happening, and the game just does this quick slowdown or sometimes i’ll turn around quickly and it happens.
The FPS drops have gotten much worse during hordes. Before the beta I would occasionally get frame drops during large hordes but now it seems to happen all the time even for small hordes.
I haven’t changed any of my video settings. I ran the game mostly on Med., some settings on High.
I’ve tried capping my framerates to 60 and 90 but it didn’t help. I had the latest video drivers and tried rolling back to previous versions.
My setup is:
CPU: Intel i5-2500k OC’d to 4.3 Ghz
GPU: Radeon R9 280X
8 GB RAM
Yea I know it’s a relatively old pc but it was working pretty well before the 1.2 patch. Now it’s a lot worse.
