Weird FPS behavior

Post by Netchythenetch » 26 Apr 2016, 18:27

Hello everyone, I apologize if this isn't the correct section. I have a weird and recurring bug with OpenMW, and before you ask, I noticed this "bug" in the last 4 versions of OpenMW; i also posted on this forum before asking for advice.
After a while, my fps drop to 4-5, even 0, and stay that way. I have an Nvidia GeForge 840M, an Intel Core i7 and windows 10. The only graphic mods I have installed are a light texture pack and a mesh improvement (no morrowind rebirth, no huge cities overhauls, nothing that could have a huge impact my fps). This laptop has also a fully modded Skyrim and Oblivion. I also tried to install vanilla Morrowind and MSGO (to see the difference) and I always have 30 fps, with medium settings. I can safely say that hardware is not an issue here :D . It almost seems that OpenMW gets "tired" and stops working properly
I hope I'm not the only one.
Thank you in advance for your reply!

Perhaps CPU could no longer deal with physics and gave up.

Just wanted to post a screenshot with the problem. I also forgot to mention that I had this problem before with a completely different pc.

Press F3 two times if it happens again and make a screenshot.

I have the exact same problem with the physics mainly in balmora but it's happened in other places too. Issuing a 'ra' fixes the issue some of the time, and when it does the 'fix' only lasts from a couple of seconds to a minute maximum. The physics goes through the roof for some reason.

There seems to be more info here: https://bugs.openmw.org/issues/3355

I only started running into this issue with 0.39, 0.38 and 0.37 didn't have this issue for me at least.

So i take it that this is an issue that will only be addressed only in version 1.0? Too bad. I'll have to wait! Thanks.

The target version might change, the fix might come earlier. Scrawl is usually lightning fast with the bug fixes. You just have to wait and see.
