Fun fact: sometimes the game accelerates to Warp 9 without a reason

 

Oh nice, I thought I was the only one experiencing this. This warp speed thing happens once the AI or object presence decreases I think. I know since I get it more frequently after killing off enemy planes and blowing up ground units within my area (often with hilarious results like going light-speed directly into an accelerated stall after a gun run). 

 

I read somewhere that CPU usage supposedly decreased for AI planes, but what about the ground units themselves? Even on scattered settings there seems to be more ground units on the field than prior to 3.001. 

 

A soft column attack on Scattered settings would usually have a nearly kilometer long column of vehicles rather than the odd 15 or so transports prior to 3.001

Even if I reduce the graphic and view distant to min slowdowns are still there. (scattered activity settings)

Yesterday I looked with F3 view how many planes are in the missions and there was only 4 enemy planes.

So 8 Fockewulfs , 4 Bf109 and 4 Yaks - unplayable. In quick mission I can play with everything on max with 16 planes.

 

Sometimes the game is in slowmotion right from the begining at the airfield.

What is interesting , that shoting down enemy planes doesnt  help and the game is still slowfest

 

Don't forget all the ground units. Shooting down planes definetly helps with the slowdowns.

 

I overclocked my cpu and that massively reduced the slowdowns so it is really dependant on the cpu (Even though it is never at 100%).

I can confirm that keeping HUD option ticked, while turning all message options off results in radio subtitles being displayed, but with all plane systems-related technochat being off. No idea about mission-related messages, though, as I'm still new to this game and only do some flying around in QMB.

True , but my CPU is overclocked a lot and there are people with better CPUs that have slowdowns too.

BOS is not multicore optimizied if I remember that correctly

Just tried it on my rig. On the 7900X @4.7 and a 1080, on Kuban with everything set to dense, it runs smooth and I can accellerate time to ~120%.

 

What I did notice is that on the taskmanager, running the career sowed me different CPU loads than just running single missions. I get more diverse (and heavyier total) load on my 10 cores than just one core on 100% and another at maybe 20% when running quick mission. Does carreer span more threads to load units? It would maybe explain the much smoother experience I have the game running on the extra cores. I noticed that loading a mission uses all cores vailable, shortening loading times on the 10 core 7900X during normal gameplay compared to the otherwise somewhat similarish 4770k @4.4. So far on the 7900X I only got occasionally stutters in career when some mission info is shown. But not during normal flight.

 

I'l try to get more specifics on this.

Honestly I would rather have (slightly) simplified FM and smooth gameplay with lots of units (and 4 engined bombers) than what we have now.

This FM is top notch and I like it but if they cant increase performance even more I cant play. Good will be the option to switch to simplified FM, but I dont think its possible.

They will have to make two different FMs.

It seams like each missions in carrer are made different, in a  "heavy load bomber intercept mission " in moscow it can run smooth..but with the same load of bombers in Stalingrad or kuban the game runs at 1/2 speed....

I have slowdowns even in Moscow career (worst than in Kuban).  

 

BTW how smooth is PWCG career with lots of planes?

Yes, this is strange...,but my new amd ryzen can be the reason that i dont have slow down in moscow..., I had a lot og slow play in Stalingrad with my old intel. I Will see now with the upgrade ( CPU, motherboard, ram )

Hmmm I think Ryzen is not so good in single core performance but your gameplay is improved, strange.

I would be nice to have some info about this from the team

After 2 days with no slow downs and just stutters, slow downs have returned. Stumped now going to have to wait for devs to fix doubt its a system related issues, so many people with different systems and high end ones experiencing these issues.

PWCG slows down worse for me.

Ok thanks. Im curious if there will be more cpu optimalization in the near future.

fps limiters.... helped a lot to have more constant frametimes (less stutters)

 

if you are up to try... exemple for a 60Hz monitor

ingame settings:fullscreen on / Vsynch off / fps limiter to 60

Nvidia driver tab: vsynch on / / maximum pre rendered frames 1 to 3 (test what is best for you)

 

or (if you have nvidia inspector or another 3rd part fps limiter like RTSS)

Ingame settings: fullscreen on / Vsynch on

Nvidia driver tab: vsynch (application controlled) / maximum pre rendered frames 1 to 3 (test what is best for you but know value of 1 can introduce stutters but less input lag)

Nvidia inspector:fps limiter to 60 (fps limit values can be test from 58 to 63 as it was reported to work on some games with stutters, results vary with the max pre rendered frame value )

  and the frame limiter mode setting influence the stutters too

* is suggest to begin your tests  with the nvidia driver textures setting to high performance first, raise it up after the tests

Tried all the limters and pre render frame had no effect on slow downs or stutters for me unfortunately

too bad... you tried to change your windows timer settings ? fps limiter and this helped me the most

Tested today and was able to complete the mission I couldn't be bothered trying to complete as it was the slowest mission I came across. No slow down at all, just stuttering but not game breaking. This was an escort bomber mission on moderate density.

Played for a few hours yesterday and no slow downs, however in the locations where I would normally have slowdowns I stuttered and fps was sitting at 45-60. Before the patch constantly 60 but had slowdowns.

I just tested intercept bombers career mission.

Approx. 8 heavy bombers and 3 Yaks and my flight of 2 Bf109g2 above water (This mission would have been running smoothly before the update probably), and my CPU usage in MSI afterburner was 86-92% on all four cores. It seems to me to high CPU usage for such undemanding mission

What CPU are you running? My CPU only gets to 40-50% with new update. I did read somewhere that MSI afterburner was casuing stutters for some people maybe try run without it.

 

If you run steam I also gained frames if the steam GUI was minizied and in-game UI was off.

I have I5-4670K overclocked to 4.3 Ghz. No steam and I have no stutters

Are you still getting slowdowns on this CPU? Your one is higher spec then mine as far as I was aware.
