Horrible FPS in the Broadcast instance


#1

What in the world did you do to the (final) Broadcast instance? The FPS in there is 3-5. Three to five! That’s the kind I get in a crowded Agartha or 40 man raid, not a private instance.

What did you put in here? Is it the audio?


#2

I had crappy framerate today in the whole game.
Don’t know if connected.


#3

Back in Agartha, it’s up to 20.


#4

I didn’t have an awful framerate but a few times in the fight my game froze long enough I thought it crashed (solid 5-6 seconds)


#5

This is not even the fight, it’s as soon as I enter the instance.


#6

I did not experience any problems doing the Presenter and got the three achievements in one go, but at the hourly Jack raid I had severe latency issues all day long.

Edit : I repeated “The Broadcast” this morning and according to the in-game fps display, I never left the 28-38 fps range while inside the Presenter instance. (That it didn’t go above 38 fps in there is a little strange though)

There’s a lot of fog in there, so setting Effects Detail to 3.8 instead of 4.0 might help. But you probably already knew that.


#8

This is me standing still outside the instance in BF. 33 FPS.

This is me standing still right inside the instance. Doing nothing, in a mostly dark room. 3-5 FPS slideshow. You did something wrong Funcom. And I would not bother with this so much were it not for that I need to do a fight on Elite 5 alone to get an achievement, and with even less FPS when that starts it’s nigh impossible.


#9

Right outside looking the same direction you did in that screenshot I had 107-110ish FPS but after stepping inside it dropped to 60ish. Obviously that is not a problem for me but it shows there is a distinct loss of performance not related to your computer hardware only. Unfortunately seems it results in a very uncomfortable situation for someone with a low FPS to start with.


#10

I get 40 fps outside, 31 inside. DX9 no AA and these.


In most small instances like this I cap at 60 fps though so it’s still quite low.

Thanks for more data points. It’s good to see (well, not really, but you get what I mean) that this is not something just happening with me.

I hope they can isolate and fix this.

Also, I’ve tried all the tricks in the book when it come to improving FPS, and none seem to help the slightest.


#12

My FPS outside the Lonely Patriot instance hovers between 68 and 95 depending on which direction I’m looking. Within the Lonely Patriot, my FPS was in the 20s the moment I stepped inside, and it stayed that way as I was fighting the Presenter and all the way until I exited the instance.

That’s an extremely low frame rate. That doesn’t seem normal to me for that instance. Could you please open a tech ticket with us? You can do that at help.funcom.com/. We’ll be happy to help you troubleshoot the issue.


#14

You do see that 3 others also experiences a loss of frame rate in the instance. My extremely low frame rate is a product of having a low one to begin with.

I’ve pulled all the tricks for increasing frame rate from playing TSW/SWL since 2012. Nothing helps.

It’s not me, it’s you.

Hi I have a terrible computer that’s struggled to play TSW/SWL over the years since 2012, I’ve made multiple changes to get it to work better but finally I’m at a point where I probably just need a new computer. Can you guys please fix your problem?

I tend to agree. It’s something in the instance itself that causes it. I still get playable (20+) frame rates inside, but it’s a noticeable deterioration compared to almost anywhere else in the game.
