magnus28 Posted January 26 Share Posted January 26 (edited) hey there, was on day 75, and noticed my FPS would drop to mid 20's when near my base.. Did an alt-tab and noticed that 7DTD was using 8gs of ram! Thought I had a memory leak (due to having the my client-based game sever run for many months) and decided to start a fresh game (random gen alpha 20 b6)... game started out fine, 60fps solid. I just downloaded the Geforce game experience game ready driver that came out 2 days ago, installed it and opted to use 'optimal settings for 7DTD through the Nvidia 3d settings... periodically, my FPS would drop to high 40's, low 50's. right on day 1. I alt-tabbed out and noticed that now the game was using 9GB of memory! more than before when I was on day 75 with much, much more stuff built. I turned off motion blur, SSAO, sun shafts, set shadows to medium, reflections to low, bloom to low, and everything else to 'ultra' Still same problem, 80% of the time full FPS of 60, occasionally it would drop to 48-52 with a little bit of stuttering. Now here's some variables, Hosted a client based server, and invited 2 friends to play with me, my wife, who is playing on her laptop (same house), and a friend who lives far away. (we live in Peru, he lives in Texas,) My friend in Texas is using a EVGA 3070, and says he has every setting maxed out, and he is consistently getting 74-75 fps (he is using a gaming monitor with 144hz, while i'm using a LED tv with a max refresh rate of 60hz). I asked him what his specs are, he has a similar processor AMD 7 series . he only has 16GB of ram, I have 32GB he has 3070, I have 3080ti my question is why is he able to run max settings with no problems and I have to lower mine? He has a crappier video card then me, and LESS ram... I paid $3000 US for my video card and it can't even run this 10 year old game on max settings? I play Hell Let Loose which has far superior graphics on max settings no problem! some thoughts: maybe because i'm running a server as well as playing on my dedicated machine and he isn't? maybe because i'm playing on a 50" TV and he is playing with a high end monitor?? I don't know what the variables are to make my frame rate drop so much.. all my drivers are up to date... what else could it be?
