Greetings pilots!

 

20 November 2018 at 06:00 PT / 09:00 ET we are releasing a small hot-fix to resolve an issue with FPS drops.

 

  • Optimized CPU performance which should increase FPS rates in intense battles.

 

To download a hot-fix just quit the game and wait till WGC downloads the update.

 

Good hunting!

Ah, some semblance of optimization? A welcome update if that's the case then.

I do fly Chinese aircraft a fair amount so... *ahem*

CHINA NUMBAH WAN

 

I even made a custom skin for my IL-10M!

I would hold off until you know it actually works.

Well... what kind of CPUs was this optimized for? Because I saw no difference, what so ever, as fps goes.

Truer words were never spoken.  Fools rush in, as they say, and I was foolish.

 

What I am seeing;

 

A DECREASE in fps.  Slight but it's there.  :(

 

An INCREASE in players AFK, including myself.  :(

 

A bombing sight that disappears in the middle of battles.  :(

 

A frozen game in the middle of battles.  :(

 

So all in all, I give it zero stars.  :(

 

Please take it back!  :angry:

Not an improvement. Black screen, disconnect, lag.....

:facepalm:

I spoke too soon.

My machine is an old potato laptop so i probably got my hopes up needlessly. 

Random disconnects are now a thing ...
And frames still drop to single digits when its really crowded. 

but things were a bit more consistently smooth outside of those crowds.

So this enhancement still needs to be calibrated a bit more before it hits that sweet spot.  
At least you're trying, WG. SO dont quit now.

Let me tell you how to optimize the FPS in this game, using experience from the past.  

 

You know all those birds flying around?  and the sounds they make?  and those AA puffs way in the distance off the map?  They are eating up FPS.  I guarantee you that is happening.  

 

Remove them, and see what happens.  It will make a healthy dent in the problem.  Even if they aren't being displayed, the GPU is running the numbers on them and running the sounds on them in the background just in case you do look that way.  

 

And there is something wrong with the Cold Peak maps.  they look beautiful, no doubt, but there is something on them that just kills FPS.  They need to be withdrawn and looked at closely.  

 

And no, I don't have a bad computer, I have a new Dell Inspiron 5675 Ryzen 1700Z with 16gb of ram and a AMD RX 580.  More that enough to run this game at max fps on very high or ultra or whatever.

Realizing that WG wont do ALL the heavy lifting to solve this problem without help ...
... i now have ditched the old potato-top w/ lowest graphic settings.
And upgraded to something that is relevant to this decade instead of the last one.  (thank you Cyber Monday)
 

  • Intel Core i5-8600K Processor
  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB GDDR5
  • 8GB DDR4-2400 RAM
  • 256GB Solid State Drive
  • Microsoft Windows 10 Home


now i can run this game at Very High graphic settings.
And my frame rates now are at 60+
not that i would notice anything more because that is where the 1360x786 tv stops.

Spoiler



Most important I can now DogFight without noticeable frame drop.
Still getting used to all the pretty distractions around me. Because HD graphics are HD
But now if i miss you in an attack pass it is because my aim is bad/your dodging skills are good
not because the frame rate dropped to 9 or
when i pressed the left mouse button the screen blacked out for a few seconds instead of going DakaDakaDakaPOW

Which is all i really wanted.
