Hard fps hit ONLY at night...

Recommended Posts

During the day, it's as close to perfect, as it could get. At night, one heck of an fps hit. " Normal" fps range is between 30 - 40. When I'm experiencing this issue, I get between 3 - 4 fps. It's the same issue with both a stock airport or addon airport. I'm using p3dv4.2, used the FLAI operations center to get liveries. I used the additional tools ParkPosGenerator and AILGenerator with no issues there. For weather, I use ASP3DV4. 

As per the faq, I generated a ContentErrors file and got 8 of these errors:

[error.0]
error=Found Duplicate Key Name
 File:C:\Users\srmj7\AppData\Roaming\FLAI\Effects\fx_aiafterburner_trdm29.fx
 Section:ParticleAttributes.9
 Key:FPS

The above error is also generated when running during the day, without issue.

Any ideas?

 

Thank you,

Steven

It's more than likely not related to that fx file error.

Are you using SSAA and dynamic lighting together?  SSAA applied together with DL is a tremendous load on the GPU.  Multiple light packages, like Orbx and UTL lights together can also be a problem.

A good starting point is to monitor your CPU and GPU load while this is happening...either or both at/near 100% is a telltale sign.

I do use SSAA and will check that now. I will check to see if both the gpu and cpu are getting pegged. No light packages in use. While I have a decent machine for this sort of thing, I try to stay as light as possible when it comes to any sort of addon. Don't want to go down that rabbit hole..

I turned off dynamic lighting and that appears to have resolved the insanely low frame rate. I'm going to play with some other lighting settings. I consider the issue to be resolved. Trading a little dynamic lighting for the awesome traffic is more than fair in my book. I appreciate your help. Thanks a ton! Is there anything else to be done here?

Hi Steven,

Good to hear you found the cause of that FPS hit. The traffic injection part of PSXseeconTraffic has no notion of the time of the day so it couldn't have been involved.

Glad you like my program, please tell your friends.

Nico
