Frequent micro stuttering when rotating camera

Game mode: Single-player
Type of issue: Performance
Server type: Single-player
Region: Single-player

Just as the title says. I started this game a few days before, and this issue is driving me mad.
I first thought it might occur at some specific places on the map, but after playing for a while i find that it’s happening frequently.

I’ve read tons of posts about stuttering issues and I’ve tried every method I found but it didn’t work.
methods I’ve tried:
1.changing graphic settings;
2.lock the frame rate;
3.turn the v-sync on;
4.turn on the v-sync through Nvidia Control Panel(I’ve also tried Fast v-sync);
5.the “gc.BlueprintClusteringEnabled” 's value in config file is set to false
6."-USEALLAVAILABLECORES" and “-PREFERREDPROCESSOR 12” is added to the launch option
7.set the max pre-rendered frame to 1 doesn’t help
8.Display Driver and OS is up to date.
9.turning of the fullscreen optimization the game through administrator the game without BattleEye
12.steam in-game layout has been turned of
13.High-performance power plan of course, as well as other OS tweakings(even tried Ultimate Performance mode)

I noticed that with “stat fps” on, the frame rate will drop to 59 for a very short while and then go back to 60(I lock the frame rate), and if I unlock the cap, it’s similar, like dropping from 90 to 70 and then goes back; Also,with “stat unitgraph” on, the graph become spiky when encountering the problem. The GPU usage is changing from 99% to 95% or 96%.

My specs:
CPU:intel Core i9-8950HK @4.3ghz
Memory:32gigabytes DDR4 2666mhz
OS: Windows 10 pro 64bit
Storage:2x Samsung PM961 MZVLW256HEHP (RAID 0), 512 GB

I am playing at the starting area(the desert and the river at the south of the map). About 70% of the time(just an estimation) the game runs smoothly, but that problem just occur periodically and it’s very uncomfortable.

Please provide a step-by-step process of how the bug can be reproduced. The more details you provide us with the easier it will be for us to find and fix the bug:
1.launch the game
2.load your save
3.running around and rotating your camera

Hey @Imetatron

Welcome to our community.
Could you share a video with this issue in action?
Thanks in advance.

Have you tried removing your bracelet?
I uploaded a video on youtube.
hope this could be fix

Try locking your framerate 1-2 fps below your monitors refresh rate. Never had that issue with this game, but I had a similar problem with 7 days to die and that helped get rid of stuttering.

Thank you for the video @Imetatron
Sending it to our team :slight_smile:

It’s a common problem for single player. We were discussing it on either the steam or reddit forums. There is a fix but it requires opening ports and changing your single player to a dedicated server.
To get rid of the lag apparently you have to install the dedicated on a different drive to what the game is on.

A few people have said that even with ssd you have to install the dedicated on a different drive. It would be good if Funcom could fix this so we don’t have to run a dedicated server.
