Freezes or Stutters? What Are They?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have a good selection of graphics setting profiles and am able to change my settings to cope with the current region. One of them is my Extreme Airliner setting, Medium LOD, autogen to Normal and most graphics sliders set to one-half.

 

But... I seem to get a stutter or freeze over cities. The fps counter shows upper 20s and low 30s as I'm flying over a city, perhaps after take-off in a GA plane. Every few minutes the screen freezes for 3-5 seconds then continues. Is this a stutter or a freeze or a micro-stutter? With my autogen cut back and my fps at a decent level, why am I getting these freezes/stutters? If my fps was <10 I could understand it.

 

Is this an autogen creation problem? I dont really mess with my cfg, but could there be a tweak I could play around with?

 

My system is a quad core, 3.8MHz, overclocked, with a GTX 760 Nvidia graphics card.

Freezes are when the entire program would stop responding, usually temporarily then it recovers in a few seconds. If the main window says "Microsoft Flight Simulator X (Not Responding)", then it's a freeze. Stutters are occasional drops in framerate, but everything on the screen is still being rendered.

 

Sounds like stutters to me. Reduce your settings to make it go away. Can't really expect to run full 100% AI traffic and all the other stuff with the system you stated.

 

I personally can't run autogen full tilt because my GPU can't handle it (not enough shaders on the card for all the autogen). So I always turn mine down to sparse. My AI traffic is off for further tuning.

If the time between the pauses is exactly the same amount, then I would start looking at background processes.  Programs that are searching for updates, anti-malware scans, etc. often run on set schedules and can interrupt FSX.
