fps drops on jay1

Question

hi,

 

whenever the server gets fuller (i think it starts at 14v14) i am experiencing a fluctuation of the fps. the fps go down to 50-80 at certain spots on every map (e.g. under the bridge on goldrush or near mountains on capuzzo) which makes the game unsmooth as hell and therefore unplayable.

 

it seems like that this only occurs on jay1 whereas the other servers are fine (silent, jay3).

 

setting the core priority to one core doesn't help,

r_primitives is set to 2,

i have the newest nvidia driver installed,

threaded optimization / triple buffering is off.

 

my specs are:

windows 7 64 bit

amd fx 8320

nvidia gtx 1050

8 gb ddr3

acer gn246hl 144 hz

 

thanks in advance for any help!

You may want to take a look at your CPU temps while your playing. When I had similar issues on my old computer, I replaced my thermal paste and cleaned each fan blade with a Q-Tip and alcohol, plus the cooling fins on my CPU Cooler and it was an immediate improvement.  The most shocking was the amount of dust deep in those cooling fins.

100% in agreement. My laptop goes from 120 FPS to 30 FPS in 30 mins of playing ET because of messed up heating issue.

When I built this system, which I thought that I would be over-clocking, I installed a program called SpeedFan, which lets me see various system temperatures and control the fans.  There are other programs which will report system temps, too.

 

(I discovered after I had assembled this system that the expensive 6-core CPU that I had bought was 'locked'. Ha, Ha at myself ! :D  Sellers still want $800+ for unused X-versions of it! :o I removed 1 of the 2 fans from the liquid-cooling kit because they were it was so damned loud.  I installed a fan-controller device in an external bay and usually have the speed of the remaining fan at about 40%, depending on ambient temps in this room. )

Same here, I just play a couple maps and try and let it cool.  And Hipkat is crazy right about redoing the thermal paste big time helps 🤠👍

That reminds me of a job I had where the boss asked me to trouble-shoot the PC controlling an ink-mixer.  It would not boot, no matter what I did in the BIOS or whatever.  I then realized it was locking up at about 30 seconds each time and might be doing an auto-power-off from overheating.  We opened the case and found that the top screw holding the CPU onto the mobo had fallen out and the CPU was hanging at about 60 degrees. (It was a printing company and the presses made a lot of vibrations.) The Boss wanted to just reconnect the screw, but I said that it needed a new layer of silicone paste.  I told him, "someone will have to go to the store tomorrow" (it was 2300 on night-shift).  He said, "nah" and got some plumbers' silicone and used that. :o I did at least get him to clean off the old stuff, but with 'industrial alcohol'...

Ya I can’t even count how many workstations we had go down out there in the desert 🌵 due to over heating, and of course sand.  Laptops were dropping crazy fast.  Changing the thermal paste became the norm way to often.  Oh lol and my old Xbox lasted way longer out there then my ps2 did.

Nice to see that you still play Ava!

 

Mostly the drop is because there are too many players in one server. Plus the arty, rifle, nades, landmines and support fire spam.

landmines are 30 max and in few maps even less. artillery is 1 per min - lowest you can go.  May be for once, I will set up jay1 temp for few hrs on US machine and see how it goes.

i found the DVD and (re)installed the chipset drivers + video card driver. the fps still drop - i tested it on venice (15v15) at the tank barrier and they went down to 70-80. as i said, they only drop at certain spots.
