Update 1.2.15 - Performance Loss

Recommended Posts

This update just wrecked my DCS totally.

My wingman is experiencing some wierd stuff as well.

 

Me before:

60-120 fps average

Me now: 10 and laggy as hell. Totally unplayable.

 

Wingman:

Ka-50 crashes his game

 

Without mods - instant action - quick missions. All tested.

 

My system:

Win8 64x

i7-4770K

2x8GB DDR3 Corsair Dominator platinum 1866mhz cl9 RAM

GTX 690 (Multi-GPU off for DCS although it made no difference this time. It cant get worse I suppose)

Win+DCS runs on SSD

 

Something in this update has seriously messed my DCS up.

 

Halp.

Okay, hope you dont mind me asking - but I really dont see what a 10 second track will do, and a log when there is no errors besides 10 fps?

 

Its not just poor performance. Its no performance at all.

 

Yes, repair did nothing at all.

 

 

 

Try renaming your DCS folder in saved games (you can always change the name back if that doesnt work), understand this will remove all your settings and options, but its worth a try before the next option which might be a re-install.

 

Also have you tried multiple modules? Do you have an issue with all or just one?

Thanks, I'll try that.

No, its all modules, even F15. It feels like render issues with clutter/details because I just tried starting a plane in-flight and It's almost like a switch turning off when going above around 4000ft.

Then it runs "okay", but nothing like before. Somewhere right below 4000ft It "switches" back to I can allmost count the frame-frame-frames..

I can answer that only after I found something odd in the logs (for example continously repeated error messages, for whatever reason, that might eat up performance).

 

If there is nothing in the logs, then we wasted 2-3 postnings in this thread *shrug*. Imo it is always better to have more information than less.

Heh, you got a point. We just wasted the posting.. There is nothing exessive repeated in the logs, they look rather nice actually. :smilewink:

 

 

SiThSpAwN!

I actually believe the new saved games folder did it. :D

Wonder what has been in there it didnt like.

Really strange, because on my machine, v1.2.15 seems to run better than any previous version so far. As to why that is, however - or why your performance is in the toilet - I've no clue.

 

PS. I realize this post is not really helpful in any way, but still wanted to say this for a comparison. Fetching my coat now...

Do you have any mods or anything like that? Perhaps something just went corrupt, the installer doesnt touch that folder, anyways I am glad I could help, let me know if anything else goes south :)

What mods do you have?

 

Only asking cos that might of done something..... maybe.....

The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.

I have mods, all JSGME. But I tried with and without. It made no difference.

 

We just played an hour, testing a bit. Results are, its playable now.

But - when landing in MiG-21 which is a bit heavy in the cockpit, Im down to 15fps. Which is far worse than usually, and it makes it... No fun... That shouldnt be the issue with my system which isnt exactly low end. But I dunno.

Around 25-30 in a dogfight with Sabre and my buddys MiG-15. Much worse than usual, but enjoyable.

 

And no, my buddy's game still crashes when loading KA-50. Every single other module works for him, I'll take a look at his logfiles later, its sleepytime here.

I did read someone had the same issue with the A-10C?

 

So, my conclusion right now is the new savegame folder did remove whatever caused the critical stuff, but it feels like there's still something naggin'.

 

Might try to remove every DCS thing on my drive and reinstall it later.

I can say the performance is even better than 1.2.14.

 

I know I'm repeating myself, but yes, the performance has literally NEVER been better than it is now for me. Kudos for a job brilliantly done ED :)

 

I'm just wondering whether it's parts of the new rendering engine already finding their way in there, or what exactly. Because judging from past performance, merely tweaking things only gets you so far! Hmmm...

Yeah, it's nice that some of you have a jolly time with this update, but there is other threads on the forum for that kind of joy. ;)

The fact is, every system is different. Comparison is not always 1:1.

 

Nice to see im far from the only one having issues. Sad, but at least im not alone about it. I hope its not going back to the old days where every DCS update was a risk of ruining your game.

 

Hope they find something bad in their patch, fast -for us that do have issues with this update.

Well I did find this in my logs:

Buuuut, that can by anything.

These seem to be log entries from the current render responsible for drawing edges around objects. So it has nothing at all to do with EDGE the engine I'm sure ;)

I don't think I have performance loss in v1.2.15 especially, but I can say that I lose performance in time - gradually after every update, I guess...

 

Even in Su-27 I was getting good FPS like 30~50. Now, over Sochi if I see 20 I'll be happy.

 

And if we count new modules complexity, it goes worse. I can't get over 17 FPS with C-101EB...

 

I'll wait for DCS2. If I will not able to see a good performance, upgrading my system will be only choice for me I think...

I have a performance loss of about 6-10% in 1.2.15 vs 1.2.14. I just did a controlled test by downgrading DCS then upgrading back up on a test track of a Ka50 taking off. I log sample FPS at different time intervals (by hand) and compare. losing 3-6FPS everywhere.
