P3D v5 HF1 has halved my fps!! :(

Postby MagyarMatt » Sun May 03, 2020 9:23 pm

Previously I was getting 30 to 40 fps at Heathrow. Plenty of VRAM to spare. Now having installed the hotfix that has nose dived to 15 to 20!!

Can I have my performance back please?!!

Hello,

Are you seeing performance differences with Dynamic Texture Streaming on or off? Also what are your graphics settings?

I've noticed this as well, particularly with addon aircraft that have glass cockpits. Carenado SR22, PC12 and Vertx DA62 have very low FPS around 10. If I change the panel.cfg entries for "pixel_size=4096,4096" to "pixel_size=1024,1024" FPS improves and will maintain lock at 30fps on my system. However, the legibility of the gauges is much less satisfying. Could this FPS issue be related to 4k cockpit textures?

Dynamic texture streaming seems to be making no difference to the VRAM usage or the fps. My grphics settings are the same as in the release version. In that at heathrow I could get up to 40fps, now barely above 20

@MagyarMatt,

What are your system specs, and are you running with 2 monitors?

Also try to set UPPER_FRAMERATE_LIMIT to 30.
