PostSubject: Strange lighting in caves   Fri 26 Jan 2018 - 13:35

Since the latest patch I am seeing some strange light and shadow effects in the Caves. Just curious, is anyone else seeing this? (using DX11-Extended).

I was just in the Cave delivering Miner's Book, and don't remember anything like that. However, after Patch 16.4, or 16.5, my frame-rates have dropped significantly. With GSync, I was getting 120 fps in most of Cordon, Garbage, Agroprom, and Dark Valley. Not everywhere, of course. Now fps has dropped to 80s and 90s, with dips below 60fps. No changes in drivers, settings, etc. When sjohnson reported this in another thread, he may be onto something

Thanks kd6dm. I just went back to the cave and it still has the light patches for me. I also noticed odd lighting in parts of the Labyrinth, but only in peripheral vision. If I look directly it looks normal.

I have noticed an occasional frame drop in Garbage, especially when raining ... like playing in treacle! Haven't noticed it elsewhere yet (caveat: I have yet to travel beyond the Bar).

The landscape textures that occasionally went missing at the Bar exit to Garbage are now missing every time I go down that road. As usual they pop back when I look away, so it isn't a problem, but I will try the lower DX settings to see if that improves things. (EDIT: no difference, textures are missing on all settings.)

Hi pchester, just went to the Cave to retrieve Strelok's PDA, and encountered the same texture glitch that you did. Also using DX11-Extended.

Ive started a new game. Tho I haven't yet been to AW, the slow down is NOT present in Garbage ATM. A guess: the frame rate changes somewhere between late Story mode and early Collector mode.

That's where this old memory places the time it began...

I think I first noticed it after first reaching the bar. The lag when facing the swampy area makes traveling through Garbage unpleasant, and fighting anyone around the swamp is almost impossible.

Not sure when I noticed it, right after one of the 16.x patches. A couple of screenshots show an example (upper left) of the frame rate drop when facing toward and away from the ponds in garbage. Usual 110-120 fps when facing away, but 31 when facing the ponds. Pretty significant.

I know what this is now, run away swamp mist (tumon_cop). I am working on a fixer to remove them on level entry and replace them with my dynamic swamp mist (tuman_cop_tb3d). Somehow they were improperly named in the dynamic content so each time you entered the garbage, swamp, yan under, prip under and zaton they would accumulate. Give me a day.

Thanks, TB! Garbage FPS went from 17 on my system to 62 in the same place where kd6dm posted his pictures.

And, 17 was fast compared to previous framerates (sorry, did not record them but gameplay was glacial, at best!).
