Better performance

Hi,

 

I thought I need to point this out. Since yesterday's update the game is running much smoother. Not sure why. I get more or less the same FPS, maybe a bit more but there are less loading pauses, and it appears to be smoother altogether.

 

Whatever you are doing, keep it up.

 

My specs: i7-920 @2.67, GTX 950, 16G RAM, Win 7 64.

Just the opposite here : /

FPS stayed allmost the same ( lost 50 % in 2.0!!! ) but constant stuttering :(

Ran very smooth before the patch ...

Try deleting saved games folder and let DCS rebuild them.

 

I've had updates make my system worse before. If it is an old build consider a new install. I did this and was amazed at the improvements in DCS. Try the folders first.

Hi

The folders did not do much : /

It is allways a kind of up and down with dcs.

Hoping for the next update ...:)

If you do a complete reinstall to clean out potential issues, don't you need to deactivate ALL modules first to avoid using up an activation token?

 

I would be tempted to just try renaming the DCS folder followed by an install, which should leave the registry intact, but give you a whole new set of files.

 

Also, there is the issue that at this time AFAIK, the beta and release are at the same build, so an install of that could be used as a "rescue disc". If you have the same issues in the Beta, then it seems unlikely that reinstalling the release version of the same build would help, but who knows...

Unfortunately, it isn't easier for me, since I currently have a problem with Module manager not reading serials correctly, so it is a trust issue, and 17 modules to deal with...

 

I was just trying to find out whether or not it is necessary to deactivate all modules before un-installing/re-installing a particular release. Bearing in mind that I have alpha and beta installed too.

Updates should not ruin activations well apart from the mig21 thing shouldnt need to deactivate modules on an update

No of course, but what we are discussing is whether doing a complete fresh install of the latest version makes things run smoother, not just updating.

 

Hence the query about the need to deactivate or not before you do it. Opinions seem to vary.

Opinions seem to vary.

 

I did a complete reinstall yesterday and deactivated all modules just to be on the safe side. I had some grief with an old BS2 key that refused to work, but ED has seemingly released a bunch of registry fixes for just that:

So how about trying those and see if they help? The BS2 fix worked in my case at least.

I also had issues with module manager, so I had to do it manually. From the FAQ posted above:

 

How to manually deactivate the product:

Run the <aircraft name>_protect.exe file, which is located in associated

aircraft folder into DCS World\Mods\aircraft folder\bin\.
