ASN fps drop in dense clouds.

Recommended Posts

Hey guys

So I had just finished a flight from Vancouver to Toronto in the pmdg 777

 

Now I have not encountered this problem before.

 

Fps was dropping from 30 to 22 stuttering through dense clouds on the Toronto area on approach.

 

I am using 4x sgss with 3 cloud layers and mod settings in ASN

 

Once flight was finished I closed and fired up p3d again without asn and set up weather scenario with dense clouds and flew into it and I ha no fps drop whatsoever.

 

Your replies are appreciated..

 

Thanks

Mike

I noticed this right after the latest update. I dropped to 12fps at one point. I assumed it was my old 670 churning to stay above water. I lowered SGSS to 2x and played around with sliders to get a good 30fps again. I understand I'm not going to get much with my system, but 12fps is ridiculous with a relatively mid-tier setup and most settings at a medium level.

I think it may be the update 5921

. I thought maybe updates running in background but nothing was running and I have automatic updates switched off.

I ran a scan also for anything malicious, nothing.

 

And I am running 2 Titans sc in sli

I'm baffled

I noticed that ASN is using more and more cpu cycles the longer the flight. When I load the situation, ASN is using 0%, after half an hour of flight, that number wioll go to 4-5%, with very nasty induced stutters. Right now I'm fed with it, back to OpusFSI. Can't imagine what situation will be after an hour or two long flight with ASN?

Since I just completed a 4 hour flight with ASN in heavy weather, I can say I had no problems at all. If you're getting strange results, I suggest opening a ticket at Hifi - they have excellent support and will usually ytrack down the problem quickly.

I downloaded the patch yesterday and didn't notice a FPS loss, It was clouded/rainy but not completely overcast.

There's another patch?

Been a couple in the last few days, for P3D current version is B5921

Interesting with your results.

 

Will submit a ticket also.

 

But will investigate a little further in my system also.

Use ASN on all my VA flights, now on P3D V 3.2, and ASN 5921.  No FPS problems at all even in heavy weather.

It could be something different with ASN one of the effects can bring down the FPS like microburst windshear etc...

That is probably what I had the other day, while on approach to PAYA RWY 11 in stormy weather.

Right after the DME arc my "little" T182 started to act like a rocking chair with a broken leg. Up and Down, Sideways, etc.

 

Too bad the GTN750 does not connect to ASN, or I would have heard a warning, I don't have the ASN gauge in that plane. It would have been nice to hear the Aural warning.

I'm stumped, I haven't changed my settings at all and had worked flawlessly before.

 

It happened at around 70nm out fl310 heavy clouds.

 

I don't know I guess something was running in background.

 

My GPUs weren't hot at 60c and cpu at 50

This also was a brand new problem for me as well since the last patch. I was confused as to why it was happening and looked back at my settings in sim to try and fix it. I never had drops like that before but in cloudy weather my sim goes from 30 fps down to about 12. Very confusing.

I can confirm there is something definitely up with the latest patch for ASN. my frames are really dumping like some other people are saying.... sometimes i am going as low as 15fps....there is definitely something going on here.

 

Thanks

Maybe it's the nvidia driver I have 364.51

 

I dunno fps are getting pounded sitting on runway from 30 to 16 and up again

 

I guess others are having same issue it must be the patch?

I would love to hear others that  have some older nvidia driver. I'm on 361.75 and I have huge drops with dense clouds with or without ASN.

This has never happened before

Darn it lol

You guys are all reporting using SGSS right? I have never been able to use SGSS with P3D and get a good FPS. Try turning it off and instead use DSR with P3D anti aliasing

Mate I have been using 4xsgss since fsx .

 

And running 2 Titans sc In sli with a well balanced sim and minor tweaks.

 

I have been smashing through payware addons and weather.

 

It's the 5921 update never had this issue prior

 

Not sure if this is related to asn but I turn wx on both captain and fo pfd

 

And precipitation is only showing up on captains side

 

Thanks for the video mate

I'm running a single 980Ti and not having any issues with frames in heavy overcast conditions with high settings.

But I do not run SGSS as I use a 4K monitor so its not needed.

 

I would try what Warriorpilot suggested just for one flight to see if it changes the issues.  You can always revert back if its not.

Also check your maximum upper visibility distance as anything over 100 will tank the frames, especially in heavy cloud conditions.  I keep mine at 100.

Hey mate

 

I have tried without 4xsgss and still persists

I am set at 90 settings have not changed at all and was working flawlessly with previous updates

 

I'm stumped how it's fine for some and some of us are not so lucky.

Are you running REX?

 

If you have a backup or the original textures you could try to reload original to see.  I have also read that REX changed the width of the clouds in the cloud.fx file to minimize the issue of Popcorn clouds.  Maybe with the change in width it is having an effect on your FPS.  If you have a backup of your origianal cloud.fx file you could load it to see if that helps.

 

I personally do not use REX (except for Soft Clouds) for any textures so that may be the difference in the systems.

 

I made a backup of my cloud.fx file before installing Soft Clouds for P3D that way any changes made I can restore the original file.  I'm not too keen on 3rd party companies making changes to core sim files so I always back up all important system files.
