Performance impact still high for me

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I got excited today for the new update, especially for the 2-4x performance improvement claim. I also see many people reporting how happy they are, and this is great.  However, to my system (signature), I don't have a stutter free mouse panning experience. I know its not my sim problem because with EZdok I have completely smooth panning and transitions. Not a single stutter 99% of the times. I can see in the Task Manager that the CPU usage has been reduced, though there are still spikes to 1.5 - 1.8%. 
I get microstutters not only when panning around but also in the aircraft's movement that to my eyes, ruin the fluidity. Maybe I'm too picky with stutters, I don't know..but I can see a clear effect from Chaseplane. 

Please don't take this as a motivated criticism. As a customer I want Chase plane to become better and I know it will improve as it is still beta. I want to use the Cinematic mode and replay mode so badly. However, I can't stand these stutters. For me the number 1 feature is minimal impact on the simulator. 

So the reason of this post is to ask you people, if you get a stutter free mouse panning in VC when at the gate and if you get any stutter when taxing or flying that you won't get if you disable Chaseplane.

PS. For my tests I used the FSL A320 as I believe is the most performance hungry aircraft.

I'm happy to report that I have now managed to make Chaseplane run smooth on my system. I re-installed today and it seems to work perfect. I don't know if it was intermediate updates that improved performance or the fact that I uninstalled Corsair Link. I found that Corsair Link uses around 2-4% of CPU and decided to remove it from my system. I also don't have an antivirus anymore. I found that Bitdefender even on Game mode, uses a a lot of CPU. 

Finally I'm able to enjoy again cinematic view and the new replay mode. Thank you Keven!

This is some great news!

I will have a look at the impact Anti-viruses have on systems. Because it runs externally and injects data into another process, I suspect our software is more at risk of being monitored by those anti-viruses.

When I uninstalled my anti-virus program a few months ago, the quality of my life improved by about 300%. I'm starting to think they're a scam.
