after a lot of testing, i found out that there are areas on the campaign map which are causing fps drops. for example: middle of bretonnia, athel loren, whisenland, the vortex. i dont know if there are also areas like this in the vortex campaign (except the vortex)
its hard for my computer to maintain 60 fps (i have a 720p 60HZ monitor and i'm playing on High settings without any extras like reflection, SSAO, only the blood settings and vignette are on) but these bad-fps areas are killing my fps. it drops to 30-45 and it stutters as hell!
BUT thanks to my testing, Now i know that setting the terrain details to Mid (that option under high, dont know what is called in english, i'm german yu know) fix it in a kind of way. now, it drops to 50. and the stuttering is no longer so hard.
BUT! the terrain settings are battle only. i can not spot any difference on the campaign map visually, except the FPS.
of course, the battle terrain looks.. terrible now.
and BTW: the battle performance is not better than before. its the same.... i thought "hey, at least now the battle performance is more stable!.." nope.. no changes.
is that supposed to be like this? a BATTLE option is causing heavy FPS drops on CAMPAIGN? what is wrong?
i guess 99% its a bug, so i report it here. please fix that.
aw CA please.. set your focus on optimizing the game. PLEASE. the stuttering, the lag spikes.. it DESTROYS everything. you can make the best game ever, if it has such bad optimizing its just bad and no one wants to play it.
you breaked warhammer 1 performance with every DLC (hello bretonnia, hello beastmen) DON'T do it on warhammer 2....
PS: i am using adaptive Vsync, but its hard enough to maintain 60 FPS so i think its not really a problem.
i am not using any FPS limiter. perhaps i should, i dont know lol
and before anyone is crying YOURH PC IS JUUSTH BAAAAAD...
OS: win8.1 64 bit
graphic: nvidia gtx 970 4 gb vram
processor: AMD FX 8320 8-core processor 3,5 GHZ
ram: 16 GB DDR3
harddrive: 2 TB HDD (i can't install it on my SSD, because only 20 GB would be free on my SSD after installing the game and this is a little bit critical)
i know its not the best of the best, but it SHOULD be capable of handling the game on 60 FPS in 720p on HIGH settings.
and honestly, nobody wants to play below that.
