  1. Bonjour dev team and community, i love this flight sim but as many people, I have some stuttering even if my overall fps are never below 60 on big maps like kuban. i tried all tips from community but nothing really work. the only settings which really reduce stuttering for me is to reduce horizon draw distance to 40km. problem with this setting is the ground looks very "hazy" in comparison with setting over 130km which is indeed really better without this strange fog. does somebody know how to have the same ground aspect in 40km setting as it is on 150km? may be something to change in "startup.cfg" or in options? The only thing I found was a mod named "no fog mod". Indeed, it allow to set draw distance to 40km for low performance systems like mine and have no haze and same quality as you can see if you set draw distance to 150km (see below picture at 40 km setting) With this 40km setting, I have no stutter anymore and every options on ULTRA with average 100 fps and no hickups. This mod solve all my stuttering issues which occurred since 3.001 patch. My rig is : (Intel i7950 3,2 ghz, 12 GB ram 1600, motherboard x58, 500 GB evo 850 ssd, screen is an Asus rogue 279q Gsync 144hz, I already test vsync, gsync, fixed frequency but stuttering is always there) Moreover I have a g940 ffb joystick which does not help with stuttering issues. I also noticed that stuttering is far less on small maps like "lapino" qmb mission (16 aircraft, ground units, clouds, )where I can set every options on maximum including horizon draw distance on 150km. may be it need less RAM and less ssd page file access. Update: With last Nvidia drivers 440.97, I have been able to remove micro stuttering with setting below. I follow setting advises from https://www.blurbusters.com/gsync/gsync101-input-lag-tests-and-settings/14/. However, during flight for unknown reason, stuttering appear even with 50 FPS limit but I can eradicate it by going in FPS limiter option, put it on "no FPS limit" then go back inflight. If stutter appear again, I set again 50 fps limit and it is ok until the end of the flight.... Really strange ??? I can not explain the root cause of that but it works for me. Another thing I noticed in forum topics is even people with a very powerfull rig (I9900K, GPU 2080TI, 32mo RAM...etc) have this stutter issue. HUD (H key) activation also have a bad impact and involve stuttering. Nvidia panel Game option panel Hope my feedback can help community and dev team to squash this stuttering problem. I really trust in your team, Jason. you have already soved so many bugs and enhanced so many aspects of this fabulous warbird sim!!!! Best regards
  2. Happy to see it works for you also "Panzer-uy. I am sure it will works for most of people who have stuttering issues since months and tried dozen of optimisations as I did. As mentionned I my first post, my system is not the most powerfull (I7950@4ghz, 12go ram DDR3, GPU 1080ti) but I heard persons who have the last updated monster rig (I9900K, RTX2080Ti, 32GO DDR4) who have also stutters. "DRAW DISTANCE" have a very big influence on stuttering. May be it request to CPU a lot of frames to generate for GPU and my old I7950 cannot handle that. This why i set 40km with the no fog mod to have the same quality as you can see in draw distance 150km. I prefer to have low but stable fps around 50-60 fps instead of 110 fps with stuttering and hickup every 2 or 3 seconds..... Have a nice evenings pilots
  3. Dear community and DEV, Here is my topic which talk about a mod (nofog mod) which greatly help to remove stuttering without loosing quality (all my option are on ultra except shadow to high and mirror to simple). My CPU is an old I7950 @4ghz, GPU 1080TI, 12 RAM DDR3 1600. It is sad it is a mod because you cannot join "nomods" multiplayer server. It is why I asked to DEVS if they can integrate this mod as an option. My server with this mod is AFsparrow1968 if you want to join to test. Hope this help Regards pilots!!😉
  4. Dear devs and community, I do no know if haze use more cpu but one thing is sure, ground is nicer with this fog mod when you set "draw distance" to 40 km and all my stuttering issues disapears. Indeed if you want no fog at short distance, you have to set "draw distance " to 100km as a minimum but the counterpart is more you increase draw distance, more you get stuttering. This is why i would like this mod implemented as an option in game. It will allow to play on all no modded servers with all settings on ultra except draw distance adjusted to 40km. Have a nice day and thanks for all the work you investigate on this fabulous simulator.
  5. Dear team and community, I do not know where to put this request so I start this topic in "general discussion"... Is it possible in the future to integrate the "NO FOG MOD" as an official option. Indeed, it allow to set draw distance to 40km for low performance systems like mine and have no haze and same quality as you can see if you set draw distance to 150km (see below picture at 40 km setting). (nofog mod) which greatly help to remove stuttering without loosing quality (all my option are on ultra except shadow to high and mirror to simple).

  8. hello community, so they finally identified stuttering issue with ffb. I hope they will address that in the upcoming patch. I have a ffb logistics g940 and also stuttering . happy new year to all of you and families
  9. Hello PTK, Is there is a way to use GPRESET you provided me not as a mod but as a modified graphic preset to join multiplayer servers without mod option activated ? Thanks in advance for your help
  10. Hello Community and especially PTK, Since 2 days, I have been tweaking the gpreset.rar file you provided and activate it as a mod. I qet landscape_mesh_quality=1.0 to 0 in preset 3 and effectivelly, there is far less stutter!!! I suppose my old CPU have now less workload and can generate instructions more smoothly to GPU. There is a lot of parameters !! Some are self explicit ….but for some other, it is difficult to expect what effect it can have on CPU / GPU, FPS, smoothness and stutter free gameplay.... In any case, thanks a lot for providing this file where you can act on many parameters you do not see in game options screen.👍😄
  11. Hello PTK, Thanks for your file ! I will tweak it and load it as a mod. I noticed you have a powerful CPU and GPU but you encounter stuttering also. May be game code optimisation is not perfect today and does not use the capability of latest CPU's, GPU and large ammount of fast RAM. I trust in Devs talents to improve that in upcoming patch. bye
  12. thanks coconuts, I will try that. concerning my screen,it is an Asus rogue 279q sync 144hz, I already test vsync, gsync, fixed frequency but stuttering is always there. I really need to invest in a new CPU.
  13. Thanks for all your advices. 216th Jordan, RAM tweaking is an aspect that I did not used yet. All my RAM parameter are in auto in BIOS. I have three modes for RAM: standard, turbo ,extreme. I put mine on extreme. All other parameters (CAS speed, Write speed ...etc) stayed in auto . I do not know many thing in RAM tweaking so I am afraid to modify all RAM settings. I will also launch HWinfo to monitor computer loads and fly right now to check. Thanks to all of you guys of this Community and also cheers for the Devs who make a great work by making alive all these beautiful warbirds. I work in an airline company and since I was Young, I love piston engine aircraft of this period. It the fault of my father who bring me in all meeting in France, especially, le meeting de la Fertais Alais near Paris ☺️😁.
  14. Hello R6ckStar, Me too I do not understand. As Mentionned in my previous post, I tried all optimisation and settings proposed by experts of this passionated Community (Storebor, Geronimo, Lemon...etc). Stuttering is also due to FFB joysticks which not behave very good in IL2. But devs introduced a trick in "startup.cfg" in last patch 3.008 and I will give a try. Thanks for all your advices.
  15. Thanks for your advices, This GPU was a gift for my 50 years old birthdays. Now it is true that I seriously need to invest on remaining old components. I wait after Christmas, may be a 8700K with a good motherboard and 16 GB of RAM will not be too expensive.. So there is no ways or tips to remove this fog when horizon draw distance is 40 KM ?
