View Full Version : Random framerate drops?

5th Mar 2013, 08:36
I can run the game at a solid 60 FPS most of the time (using the default High settings... tried Ultra but it would be stuck at 30 FPS so I decided to take a step back). However, at random points, mostly during basecamp screens, it cripples down to 1-2 FPS for like 5-10 seconds. It's totally random because if I manage to back out of it and open it right away again it will work properly. It also happened on the very first QTE, as a result I saw Lara being brutally stabbed in a terribly painful slowmotion lol.

Is there something that could be causing this? I'm no computer expert and there are way too many different options to mess with in the graphic menu.

Any thoughts appreciated.

thats the setting i have and it works fine for me:
vsync= double buffering
exclusive fullscreen= off
texture quality= high
texture filter= 8x
shadow= normal
shadow resolution= high
level of detail= high
post processing= on
high precision= on
tessellation= off
hair quality= tressfx
reflections= high
DoF= normal
SSAO= normal

i had everything on ultra as well and it was lagging like hell. now with these above settings it runs very smooth for me.
