Thread: major bug....frame rate drops...

  1. #1

    major bug....frame rate drops...

    Just started playing underworld, and after a little while the frame rate will just fall to like 7 fps from 55.

    Then i have to come out of the game and go back in to get it back to 55. Alt-tab works as well.

    What is it a memory leak or something ?

    Already done it 4 times.

    Maybe it's just a bug with the start but the demo didn't do this.

    Please patch this up crystal if it is a problem with the game and my config.

    Experienced this just the 'once' with legend in next gen same thing. Not with any other games.

    Update: finished the game and this problem is only in the kraken level, have to alt-tab out and go back in about 3 times to complete this level.

    4870X2 80 FPS for 10 Mins. Then 8 FPS. What the??

    I'm just going to add my troubles to the growing list of people with FPS problems. It's weird though.

    Did the burning Croft mansion without FPS issues.

    Did the underwater temple in the Mediterranean without FPS issue.

    Once I've gone into the temple right near the end of "The Path To Avalon" and at the beginning of "Niflheim" I can play as smooth as anything for about 10 minutes at around 80 FPS. Then I dump right down to 8 FPS and get a good slideshow. Can happen at any time and in all different areas where I was sailing along at 80FPS just moments before. When this happens, if I turn on the spot, I will dump down to 8fps looking in a certain direction, then turning a bit more I might come up to around 60fps. If I just say put though looking in that direction the FPS will slowly fall back to 8.

    Nothing is running in the background. All unnecessary programs that start with windows axed.

    What on Gods Earth is going on? This is like the 3rd PC game that I've had major issues being able to play from the box. Each one has needed extensive reading and tweaking to get working properly.

    Not good enough........

    Found that if I reload my last save the problem seems to go away. That is until it occurs again.

    Anyone got any ideas??

    For those who have had this issue, please post your dxdiag.txt file, or upload it to a free file hosting website and link to the file so we can check it.

    Alternatively, contact your Technical Support Department and send them the file along with a description of your problem:

    EIDOS support world map

    Just as a matter of interest, to those who have a save at this point in the game, could you try switching off Fullscreen Effects from the setup menu and see if this helps at all.

    I got a similar drop, but on a single Radeon 4850. It could be that it was the physics going nuts, since it was right after unblocking the gears somewhere near the Kraken, where a few big boulders were tumbling around.

    Anyway, just going to the in-game menu and leaving it again fixed it, so I wasn't too bothered...

    np: Populous With Short Stories - Test Your Dreams (Drawn In Basic)

    Thanks Leak I'll give that a try. I also had it in the room with the Kraken in it. Very annoying. Whatever is causing it, it's a real pain because 8 FPS is no fun at all. I'm willing to fault hardware and PC setup when warranted but this has all the hallmarks of a nasty glitch. PC gamers I think have had more than their fair share of glitches of late.....

    Hey Leak do you have all graphics settings maxed. Any AA?

    Merged two similar threads...

    [as per my post above] Could those reporting this issue please post your dxdiag.txt file as a link to an uploaded file or copy/paste it in to a post please so we can look in to this.

    Ok here's My DXDiag. If you don't want it in this thread then feel free to remove it and I will post it elsewhere.

    I can't say I've seen any pattern to the occurrences yet. Seems to happen intermittently at all manner of places in the Kraken level and at the end of "The Path To Avalon" for me.

    Let me know if you need anything else and I'll be happy to help out.

    Thanks for showing some interest. We all appreciate it.

    Thanks for that IRON-PAWW.

    Could you try disabling crossfire and see if this makes a difference? Also, have you tried switching off the fullscreen effects I mentioned before from the setup menu?

    Ok sure, let me try these out and I'll post back what I find.

    Hi,

    I disable "FULL SCREEN EFFECTS" and resolved this issue, but after that I just found another one, I'm in the beginning of the game in the underwater temple in a part where I need to put some weights, when I drop the Weights (they seems to be heavy) they stick to Lara's feet, is just horrible to see a heavy weight being kicked like a football ball. I found this game too crapy, I go ask for a refund, simply there is better things to spend my money and time.

    I've progressed a little as a test.

    So far I've only experienced the FPS drop at the very end of "The Path to Avalon" and all throughout "Niflheim". Played through "The Norse Connection" with everything on max without issue at very decent frame rates.

    What I'll now do is go back to some previous saves and try to recreate the problem. I'll try the methods the guys suggest above (eg ALT+TABBING out) to see if they help. Then I'll try playing through without crossfire and full screen effects. That could potentially be 3 playthroughs of that level. Hope I get a TR poster for my efforts....

    For what it's worth, this game isn't crap. In my opinion. Others may think so and that's fine. I get as peeved as anyone with glitches like this but if support shows interest in the glitch then that's a good start. You have to give credit where credit is due and this game looks absolutely fantastic. The environments look the most realistic yet and I can't stop looking at the water FX. Surely thorough testing would have revealed the issue but I'm no software developer. I know this much, Program code gets complicated fast and few people have a true gift for it. It would have been nice if the game hadn't shipped with this issue in it. Still, bugs in PC games aren't exactly a new phenomenon.

    Support has extended the hand of faith here people. Anyone care to help me out in testing this issue?
