Hey,

 

I bought this a while ago and played a little bit back in .951 or around then... One thing I didnt have back when I played it the first time was slow frame rates and stuttery zoom/scroll. Its not unplayable , but it is jarring and very irritating.

 

I dont have a weak machine, im running 2x6970 and a i5 3570k at 4.5ghz.. anyone else having similar issues or is this known? Is there going to be an optimisation pass over this before release?

 

Thanks in advance for any answers...

I'm getting more stutter in the cloth map mode than 3d mode with .980.

Same here about the cloth map mode being more studdery than than the 3d mode... which seems odd to me for some reason.

unbinded1, is your lagg focused around a specific part of the game? Does your motherboard have integrated graphics? Have you used anything to clock how much memory, cpu or gpu power is being used during the game?

 

Also, how much memory do your two 6970's have? Also, how much memory do you have on your motherboard?

 

A lot of the textures have been updated, which means that if you little memory in your gfx cards, or your bandwidth is small it would have trouble with the larger textures.

Its not really focused. Its scrolling around. I reduced the textures to minimum and removed antialiasing, no change.

 

My mobo has intergrated graphics however I have disabled it in BIOS. I have 16GB on mobo which is a gigabyte UDH3, 4gb between the two cards. There is no way its my system the game is simply not that graphically intensive...

Ditto here, really noticable compared to .952. Its also occurring when beeing zoomed out just before the switch to cloth map. I blame the new font handling!

Alright, so you do not have trouble when your screen is not moving? Your frame rate is not low or stuttery when just looking at one section of the cloth map, or the tactical/strategic views?

I am noticing cloth map stutter problems as well - in addition, I've lost forests/swamps on the 3d map (they still show on cloth).

Its particularly slow when scrolling or zooming. Animations, tactical battles ect are all fine. The stuttery choppy scrolling and zooming on the strategic map is what im talking about. Unlike what others are reporting im also noticing it on the 3d map as well as cloth map.

Actually seen more stuttering on cloth map than down in the "proper" visuals

My stutter goes away after a while of using the cloth map. Odd behavior really.
