Mouse frame drop

Recommended Posts

Using exactly the same setup in P3D and FSX-SE, I find that mouse use in P3D does not effect frame rates but in FSX-SE it drops about 20%.  I wonder if Steam/Dovetail Games can fix this in FSX-SE?

Nope. Still there.

I thought the new Beta was addressing that issue.

So much for my powers of observation.  During the FSX years (I started on day one of its' release) I was never aware of the issue.  Recently became aware and checked both sims.  I also just checked and it still exists even though I am on the beta.

I made a video just now.

 

I do have the beta installed. 

It was difficult to see the numbers. It looks like you were running at 44 FPS with cursor gone. I have noticed in the past that the higher frame rate you run, the bigger percentage hit, not frame rate hit, you get. At 31 FPS locked I only get a 2 to 4 FPS hit. Something to think about. Now if they can only fix it.

Around 44 without, and 31 with mouse. The title of the video gets in the way. I had to put my face up to the screen in order to see it properly.

 

Thing is, I would get 44 with or without the mouse in other things (eg. X-Plane, P3D, random games), regardless of whether I lock my frames. There should be no framerate hit, if implemented correctly.
