Frame-rate Issues
 
Hello,

I own Rig'n'Roll since serveral days and it is a really realistic simulation. But when I'm driving in career- or single order mode with maxed out settings, I'm just getting around 16 fps. Are there any suggestions to fix this problem? (System: Q8200, 2GB RAM, ATI 4850)

Thanks!

Framerate Issues
 
What's the framerate that 1C Company expect with this config :

System Requirements
In order to play the game, your PC should meet the following requirements.

Minimum:
OS: Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7
CPU: Intel Pentium 4 2.4 GHz
RAM: 1 GB
Graphics card: DirectX 9.0-compatible, nVidia GeForce 5700 or ATI RADEON X800, 128MB of video RAM
Sound card: DirectX 9.0-compatible
Hard drive: 10GB of free space
DirectX 9.0с
DVD drive
Keyboard, mouse

matt1314 05-31-2010 04:50 PM

Well, I guess about 30 FPS, because that's the normal standard framerate at which you can play the games really smoothly.

centy2010 05-31-2010 06:59 PM

I play at 18 FPS and my config is above the minimum one

what exacly is your setup??

centy2010 05-31-2010 11:37 PM

XP Pro
Athlon 64 3500+
Geforce 6800 GT 256 Mb
Ram 2 Go
SB Live!

Ok I got 27 fps

But here is all what I did to have 27 fps.

1) Installed Omega Forceware modified driver.
2) Installed DXTweaker to force Triple Buffering & V-Sync
3) Installed AMD Fusion Kit to shutdown all background services of Windows & give more power to AMD.

==> Now I can do some more like overclocking my system.
At least I will now make a new game trying the bugs I found on the road Lebec - Los Angeles. To see if there is any change.

Ok I still have the graphics bugs on the road Lebec - Los-Angeles.

==> only solution when I see 3D world missing : PAUSE Key

Could you please tell me if installing all those programs really makes a big difference tot hte frame rates

I don't think they really do IMO. The key here I think is the CPU, Ram, and Video Cards.

I have:
Intel 2, 4 Core at 2.83GHz CPU
8GB of Ram
GeForce 9500 GT 1GB Adapter

My frame rate is between 30-45 depending on where I am, and how much traffic there is. I have yet to see a glitch, freeze, or game crash.

The game specs listed earlier in this thread are just the minimal, not peak performance.

centy2010 06-01-2010 07:54 PM

AMD Fusion helps to reduce CPU & memory usage before starting the game by stopping backgrounds services. But the gain can only be seen on low configs when on a high config the gain would be near 0.

kennyb87 06-01-2010 08:29 PM

That might help me then but always turn other programs off in task manager


Just noticed its doesnt work on intel

FPS dropping in San Francisco on US 101
 
Anyone else get this? This is on US 101, between the outskirts of San Francisco to the Golden Gate Bridge exit.
Around where the SF Intl Airport is and all of that, I can feel my FPS dropping. But usually it's still playable.

However, it was ALOT worse yesterday when I was streaming to a friend, and it was raining. Now I got a pretty decent computer, but I was getting as low as 2-4 FPS in that area. Nearly unplayable.

I just want to know why it's so bad. I mean, you got cities like LA and Reno, and it never studders there.

Your PC is a 2.2 maybe the game just makes bad use of your cores. There are many games where a good dual core will play a game better than a low quad core

I haven't noticed it. After your post I took a trip around the airport via different directions, and I didn't drop any frames.

GinXeng 06-13-2010 09:27 AM

If you are on the russian version, this is an known problem. The english version does not do this as its a newer version with optimization fixes.

Heh indeed its totally unplayable im getting 7-12 fps starting from around the ariport all the way up to the overhead highway going east towards the ocean everywhere else im getting 45-69 fps ,in fact i got the same fps drops from the russian version ( havent tried the russian version yet with the latest patch ) but its an soemwhat wierd case tbh let me elaborate: my savegame is 5 days old i finished the story 1 day after starting playign the en version ( with hotfix) and after the 3rd or 4th day cant remember i took an load from san clemente to ukiah obviously i HAD to pass thruogh that area as its the shortest route and BAM the same bs fps droprate as in russian version i thought wtf is this real....yep..and aparently the game( if you load an savegame story mode wich you have many hours played) its going to load slower and slower and the fps drop is going to be more harsh in the area its the same simpthom from the russian version all i can say its why the hell havent they fixed it yet .

the pcs i play rnr on
1
OS: Windows vista x64 sp1
CPU: intel c2c e8400 @ 3.00 ghz
Video: ASUS 4870x2

latest nvidia drivers

same issues in the same area on both of my pcs ALSO it has an 4-6 fps gain if i go from 800-600 to 1920-1200 ( the res i currently play on )= no imp whatsoever over the russian version i really dont uderstand how or why they didnt fixed this yet :(

Lolsmurf 06-20-2010 06:29 PM

Same thing here, as soon as you are nearing the bridgeheads from the south you start to experience a FPS drop...

I think it has to do something with the models, too many building models loading unproperly or the bridges are too heavy together and make a FPS drop...

I had the same thing when I played ETS on my own map and when I placed too many buildings on 1 place without giving them a loading boundary...

kennyb87 06-20-2010 06:50 PM

The Bay bridge area I notice the most fps drops so I just stay away from them most of the time. I think it's to do with all the road bridges. Lolsmurf do you prefer this to ETS yet?

movo. 06-20-2010 07:41 PM

Same here.. :(

Intel E8400 @ 3Ghz

kennyb87 06-20-2010 07:55 PM

Funny how that is the recommended specs for the game. They should be working on more optimization for the next patch

how do you mean ?

If your question is whether I like this game more than ETS the answer is yes.
This game doesnt get boring after playing it several hours and making choises affect the story so everybody plays the game on his/her own way

hi ...

Is 2.8GHz

I solved question...

Just open game folder and give a admin (win) permission to:
rungame.exe

diretory /bin:
rnr.exe
minidumper.exe

note: No need use compatibility mode, just admin permission.

Now, go to Advanced system config on win7 64, and add rungame.exe, rnr.exe and minidumper.exe in DEP config.

It procedure just solve a critical freezes problems. I dont know my fps now, but, no more 2 to 4 fps O.o ... finally, i can play, no more freeze.


Have nice day.

"Mediocre" performance in general
 
Does anyone else seem to struggle to get into the 30s for FPS in this game? I seem to stick around the 20s on average, with traffic minimal (I hate to be alone ha ha). It seems that changing the graphics doesn't make a difference. I set the game at minimum, restart the game even, and still get FPS in the 20s. I go max, restart, same thing. Everything in between doesn't seem to make a difference either. I get 10 FPS around the San Francisco bay area as many have pointed out have the same issue.

I have the English version of the game, with hotfix too.

And I thought my pc was in pretty decent spec :rolleyes:

Karl Morytz 07-21-2010 07:43 AM

I noticed MASSIVE memory leaks and huge fps drop after 1-2 hour of playing, when traffic is set to any value than 0%. So it looks like it is traffic related bug that is causing it.

Eraser74 07-21-2010 11:02 AM

This game has overall a pretty bad performance, it seems that it wasn´t optimised at all.

I have serious framerate drops when haven a few cars on screen, changing the graphics option doesn´t do much and I play on 1024*768.

System:

Amd Dualcore 64X2 5000+
4GB Ram
ATI 4670 512MB
Win7 32bit

German Truck Simulator or Euro Truck Simulator run at much higher framerate with a higher resolution and look better overall.

But I do like Rig´n Roll for its arcade approach to the genre, having all those mission per CB and all, I just hope the game gets optimised more with further updates.

SuperToast 07-21-2010 01:31 PM

Yeah, I did notice that traffic made a difference. I'll try running for a while with absolutely no traffic to see if it helps, but that takes away some realism IMO (although they only travel 35 mph on a straightaway, even on the interstates).

plolq 07-21-2010 05:39 PM

I hate to say this but the game has huge memory leaks still even after the hotfix for the en/us version AND even after playing with traffic set to 0 if you get caught by the police you can say bye bye to 30+ fps also i noticed the more loads you del;iver succesfully/complete the less fps you get after 2-3 hours and it doesnt matter where you are on map or your video settings min/.max or resolution very sad.

:arrow:temporary solution i noticed recently thta running the game in windowed mode buys me 30-40 min of gametime @58-78fps on top of those 2-3 hours wher the game preforms @ 58-78 fps drop from the usual 70-80 i get after loading my savegame ( wich lasts 30-35 minutes doesnt matter where located on map ) it drops to 57-80 and it doenst increase no matter what i do it only decreases to 25- the more i play

furthere on i noticed ALSO that after the fps drops to 30 or so whatever video settings i change ( from the ingame menu , not going to main menu ) my game instantly CTD's with no error messages thats a clear sign the game still has serious memory leaks and i cant comprehend as to why after all this time they didnt release an urgent/emergency patch to adress taht issue only...it eludes me

Eraser74 07-22-2010 05:22 PM

2.6 Ghz

The strange thing is that RnR seems to run better with max resolution. The game seemed to run choppier in 1024*768 than in much higher resolutions.

Very strange.

But it´s really unacceptable that a game like this needs such demanding hardware specs. It´s not Crysis...

I just hope that the patch comes soon, where they said to have optimised the game a bit.

Eraser74 07-22-2010 05:25 PM

Jesus, you are complaining about those fps? I have trouble running the game at a solid 30 fps most of the time.

It slows down to a crawl now and then, when there is more traffic than usual.

Changing the graphic settings doesn´t matter, also not changing the resolution, it even runs better with higher resolution than lower, which is very strange.

Exactly the same for me, I struggle to get above the 20s in FPS. And yet I get 120 in Left 4 Dead 2. It probably isn't best to compare different gaming engines, though.

Eraser74 07-22-2010 06:07 PM

Yeah I would be happy if the game would run at a steady 30fps, which it doesn´t.

L4D2 runs very smooth on my pc also, as well as other Truck sims, which outshine RnR in fps in every aspect. But somehow I am coming back to RnR always, there is something to like about this game.

plolq 07-22-2010 10:05 PM

No im not complaining about 50+ fps im complaining about the fact that it doesnt stay above 30-40 after 4 or more hours...the game still has memory leaks or whatever its causing the massive fps drop in the course of 2-3 hrs from the steady 50-78fps @ gameload to 26-30 when it shutters/lag so bad i have to reload, basicly i ran numerous testing sessions and aparently it goes from 78-80 after gameload to 67-72 after 1-1.2 hrs of game time then 50-62 after 2 hours and then 22-28 ( not stable it would be awsome if it would be stable @ 28 but its not) at the point i have to reload my save becuse it just unplayable

sorry for my bad/wierd way of putting it but english isnt my native lang and im tryign to explain my issue (on both of my pc's) wich im sure everyone is having wich is a shame as its the games only real major gamebreaking issue:evil:

talking about memory leaks i remember disciples III having similar issues the game was ctd and had major slowdowns , i remember buying mine digital copy of d3 only to become fustrated by the ctd's and missing textures/crashes wich were adressed and fixed by now ( the us version of d3 doesnt have em.) but it was patched somewhat quick after the issues were addresed and reported i wonder why isnt rnr , i bet it sold a ****load more copies than d3 III russian and int/eng version alltogether...

SuperToast 07-23-2010 08:37 PM

It's interesting that you're experiencing such a drop, for me I go from high 20s to low 20s in a course of 3-4 hours. But it seems that I don't drop FPS that much (and good thing I don't, otherwise I'd be playing with FPS in the single digits...).

M76 07-25-2010 09:12 PM

I don't know if this was said before.

If the fps drops below playable levels, save the game, and quit completely, not just to the main manu, to the desktop. Run the game again, and load the save, then the fps should be back to normal.

This worked for me. Its not a solution just a workaround.

it has just happened to me also,i have the english CD version and i have had no problems upto now everything has been running smoothly,but going to colfax passing through the SF area framerate dropped to about maybe 1-2 fps and then when i came back through on my way to san jose it did it again to the point where it was impossible to play and i had to quit out back to desktop.

Yes heading from San Jose to San Fransisco. Everything is fine until I enter S.F. then, it becomes a slide show until a little after you choose either the bay bridge or G.G. bridge then it becomes fine.

And what are your comp specs. I'm begining to notice that a lot of you are running the game on Minimal specs, or less. This is the major factor contributing to this frame-rate problem, and a host of others.

No, I have everything maxed and have traffic all the way maxed. Its very smooth and good fps everywhere else just that one section, where the FPS dips to slide show.

I have lag all the time. And my traffic is set to 0. But when You pass a amount of 10-15 cars. I get MORE lag.
Performance has been done real bad. I can run games like dirt2 and farcry2 on high settings and i get minor lag.

Patrick 08-12-2010 10:32 PM

I checked my FPS today. It is 10-12 when there is no-one around. And 6-8 with some cars around...

BleDrajor 08-18-2010 10:25 AM

Hello guys!



I have a similar problem...

Especially on US-101 between San Jose and San Francisco (The location where you can decide driving on to Oakland or to G.G. Bridge) my framerate drops.

I also have a dropping of the FPS on some other places like partly on the way from Oxnard to Los Angeles. Not as extremely as on this 101-place, but you notice something like the beginning of a slideshow.

On other places, especially from Atascadero to Kettleman City or Mi-Wuk Village, the FPS is high enough for a nice gaming. Everything runs fine. Also on some road-parts, for example between Santa Barbara and Atascadero.

It seems that the traffic and the surroundings have a big influence. When I turn off the traffic nearly everything runs fine, even on this US-101 location the FPS does not drop so bad like when traffic is turned on.


Now to my game and computer:
I play the German version of Rig'n'Roll.

CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad CPU Q6600 (4 x 2.40 GHz)
RAM: 4 Gb
Graphic: ATI Radeon HD 4890 (1024 Mb)
Sound: Creative SB X-Fi Surround 5.1
OS: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium (64 Bit)
Controller: Logitech G5, G15 and G25.
Background-programs while playing: Xfire, no difference when it's closed.

Of course my drivers are updated.
The ATI Catalyst options are set on high qualities, only AA and AAA are turned off (4xAA is turned on in-game, AAA causes graphic bugs.)
16x anisotropic filtering via ATI.
In Rig'n'Roll options everything is maximized. Playing on 1280x960 and 50% traffic density.

I already tried less traffic desity (10 to 20%) and reduzing car details, reflections details and anisotropic filtering.


Other games work fine, even Crysis runs on high options with a good FPS.
So I don't think that my computer is too bad for Rig'n'Roll.


Sorry for talking so much. A lot of stuff to read, maybe someone had this time. ;)

Maybe someone has an idea for optimization for me. Otherwise I hope that another patch could fix these performance problems...

Your RAM may be the issue here. I'm not sure about the German version, but I think it requires 1 - 2GB of RAM, and you only have 4MB of RAM according to your specs. This is far too low for this game.

In most countries comma is a decimal separator, not a dot like in US :)

What does that have to do with my statement?:confused:

Eggtooth 08-19-2010 12:43 PM

I am going to that places to check how Polish version is working here. For me game runs smooth.

PC Specs:
Core 2 Duo e4500 3.0GHz (overclocked)
3GB RAM
ATI Radeon HD 4850 512 MB.



@EDIT: I'm on US 101. Nothing special. Around 17-20FPS. Playable. Sometimes 20-25,30FPs. Still playable.

@EDIT 2: I passed the Golden Gate. 17-25FPS sometimes 14. Also fraps overloading system so without fraps game runs better. I don't feel bad FPS at all. I like this game :D. Golden Gate looks A-W-E-S-O-M-E. I never been here.... This is my favourite place :D Especcialy Vista Point :>

Sorry, I should have remembered that 1.024MB = 1GB, but it's been soooo long since anyone used that expression, that I just had a brain fart. I'm use to seeing 4GB, and not the long version. I had no problem with the decimal, or comma, just the expression. My fault.;)

BleDrajor 08-19-2010 11:02 PM

Sorry, I totally forgot to change that, didn't think about the "," and "." thing. Fixed it now.

Okay, so what could be the problem now? More and more I begin to believe that my Quad Core CPU has problems while Dual Cores have better chances. Could that be true?
If yes, what's then? I don't really want to buy a new CPU as long as other games run fine. Would it be possible for the game developers to bring out a patch that could fix this problem?

I already admitted my error, as I always do when I'm wrong. No other comments needed.;)

Your quad system is good. I have it too. Just don't make a common mistake that it increases speed 4 x 2.4GHz. This is not the case. The quad core just allocates data and/or memory better NOT faster. You would be surprised at how many people think this is faster (like 4x2.4GHz=9.6GHz). Keep in mind that this is a heavy game, and poorly optimized. 2.4GHz will cause some frame drops in highly detailed graphic areas, and traffic set high. That's just the way it is. The only thing I can recommend is a faster CPU, or just lower the settings to an acceptable/playable rate. I too hope for a patch to correct this for all concerned.

BleDrajor 08-20-2010 09:30 AM

9.6 GHz would be a really nice thing... :grin:


Thanks for your help!

After I activated "Executing as administrator" on the game shortcut and overclocked my CPU to 2.75 GHz nearly everything runs great, on some places the FPS drops down a bit but it's playable without problems (But I wasn't able to try out the critical 101 place yet.).
On the other hand the game sometimes closes itself without any reason now... oO

Someone some time ago reported this problem when over-clocking your CPU. It takes something away from the CPU core allocations, and causes your system to freeze up, or kicks you out of Ring'n'Roll.

SuperToast 09-04-2010 03:57 AM

Just out of curiosity, could anyone here that plays RnR and continually gets over 30 fps on max settings post their PC specs here please? I'm thinking about upgrading, although going off to college in a year might not be worth it.

I get FPS in the 20s and then teens when it comes to driving through the Bay Bridge area in San Francisco.

My Spec's are
-Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 @2.4gHz
-6GB RAM
-NVidia GeForce 9800 GTX+ 512mb GDDR3 memory
-Windows 7 Home Premium, 64-bit OS

Thanks!

Just upgrade your 2.4GHz for greater playability (this is minimal for the game). Many that report problems fall into this category. Otherwise you're good to go.

It is 2.4gHz, but minimal states a 2.4 Pentium 4 (single core), right? I guess it wouldn't make mine any better if the game doesn't support multiple cores, though. Yet, I do seem to notice all cores being active while running the game.

Kibble 09-05-2010 08:09 AM

the game does support multiple cores. i have a AMD X64 X2 dual core processor and gives me 2.7 ghz, and the game runs great

The game is poorly optimized. 2.4GHz is just not going to cut it, and when they wrote the requirements they put no thought into it. I have a 2.83GHz 2 core quad, 8GB Ram, and my frame rate never drops below 30 anywhere. The point is the higher your CPU speed, the better the game will run. Look at all the problems reported here, and you'll find that the majority of them are CPU's with 2.4GHz regardless of cores.

fps is 3
 
I have a gaming computer. I have a nvidia gt 260. I have an amd phenom ii and it has 2.40hz. I have 3gm of ram and i still get 3fps in the story mode. Its only in the story mode but when i play single haul mode then i get like 60 or 80 fps. But when go and try to play my story mode i have 3 or 4 fps. Does anyone have advice or what to do. Thanks

your problem is your processor. the game requirs a 2.4 GHZ processor. i have a 2.8 (dual core) so its no problem for me. hotels are in truck stops, and you can find the time in the orginiser (press F3)

also, you need a new processor. get the AMD 64 X2 2.8 or somethying. its really affordable

Kibble is right. Your computer speed barely covers the Minimal Requirements. So you will find some problems running this game. I also think Melkor said something, somewhere about this game, and others having difficulty running on a triple core system. You can find the time of day in your PDA (F3 Key) at the bottom, as Kibble already stated. Also on post #131 HERE I asked you to post your question in this thread. Please stop posting new threads where topics already exist.

raiken 06-26-2011 07:04 PM

good evening all!! i am new around here... and i hate to introduce myself asking for solutions :(

as i can see there is no newer patch/fix for english version of rnr. i have same problems issue regarding frame rate near to greenfield and san francisco.
i've tried to solve this updating vide ocard drivers... but unfortunately things went worse!!
for example: the movie from beginning is playing with 60 FPS (instead of 220 - like he did before updating drivers)... and instead of 25-30 PFS (in game)... now i have 8-10 fps.
i have tried to roll back video drivers... and nothing!!! i've tried 3 different plder drivers from nvidia and nothing.. the game remains unplayable :(.
is there anything special to do??

my comp specs are: Core2Duo E6300 - 1.83 Ghz (overclocked at 2.8 Ghz), 5 GB of ram (3.5 usable cause i am using 32 Win7 32 bit), nvidia GTX 460 (1GB/256bit) video card.

does anyone know if a new fix/patch will appear??

also: i played crysis 2 with all details maximized (without anti aliasing)... and rarely i went below 27 frames

please help!!
thanks in advance
greets raiken

USA Trucker 06-26-2011 07:46 PM

Hello, and welcome to the forum.

Your CPU speed of 1.83. (overclocked 2.8Ghz) is still running at the minimal specs of the game requirement. This is not enough to run the game properly. As you can see from most of the problems reported, they are from people with a CPU speed of less than 3.0Ghz.

As discussed in the patch thread, there in no patch forthcoming as of yet, in spite of what may be rumored. I believe any patch for the international version of this game may not be seen for quite some time. Crysis is a different species of a game than RNR, and shouldn’t be compared. They are designed quite differently from each other.

i understand that my cpu is not the best.. but still it was running fine till i update video drivers. and right after... the game start running like i mentioned...

and now.. i can mention that 8-10 FPS and 25-30 FPS are EXACTLY in the same part of the map... even in single mission when i am entering in the warehouse!
soon... in 1 month at last 2.. i will change my platform to an i5... but till than... it will be awesome if i will bring those 25-30 frames back.

thank you

PS: is there any way to select openGL or direct 3d?? maybe it is a file which is giving a glitch in rendering... :-?

USA Trucker 06-26-2011 08:14 PM

Good Lucky. Just remember that overclocking is not the answer for every game, and/or situation. You may do more harm than good. I have seen way too many machines overheat using this option, and die without the proper stress test being done. Therefore I never use this option. I’d rather buy a better CPU/Motherboard than have to risk that option, and wind up getting one anyway.:(

If you think Crysis looks, and feels good now, wait until you get a better system when you’re ready.:cool:

There is no way to change the OpenGL, or Direct 3D settings on this game. It simply doesn’t offer it. What you see in the video options is all you get.

DennChooch 09-19-2011 11:52 AM

already discussing this somewhere else but perhaps this is good info to other readers;

amd athlon 64 x2 4800+ 2.5ghz
2gb ram
win 7 64-bit

wasn't surprised about frame drops due to my lack of ram, eventhough i run other games such as dirt 3 and gta 4 just fine, but the game becomes absolutely unplayable during the night. tried just about everything, fiddled around with every setting--no luck. shame, love this game.

USA Trucker 09-19-2011 02:07 PM

The minimal game requirements is inaccurate to run this game, and play it as intended. You really need the recommended requirements. See HERE. This game causes havoc with many people running on 2GB Ram, and CPU speeds lower than 3.0GHz. Dirt 3, and GTA4 are better optimized to run on a variety of computers with these specs. You can’t compare those two games with this one. This game is a CPU hog in almost all aspects.

DennChooch 09-19-2011 03:12 PM

that's only due to poor optimization--something which can be fixed... a patch or hotfix would be welcome. we paid for it.

USA Trucker 09-19-2011 03:35 PM

And as I stated in the patch threads, that the prospects of a patch for the English version appears to have been abandoned.

Kritz 01-01-2012 10:29 AM

I'd just like to note that I do not believe the critically low framerate issue (~1-2FPS in certain cities / areas) is entirely due to hardware, if at all.

My hardware:

AMD Phenom II x4 965 @ 3.4GHz
ATI Radeon HD 5850 1GB
4GB DDR2 RAM

Running on Windows 7 64bit.

I've tried running the game on various graphical settings (from low, medium, high in everything to mixes of things), as well as running the .exe as an administrator, launching at lower resolutions (Monitor is 1080p native), running it with compatibility modes for older Windows versions, and a few other "fixes" that were suggested by this thread's users.

Game runs at well above 60FPS at maximum settings in the starting area. The two times I have noticed it dip was when the day cycle turned to night - although that could be a coincidence. Lowering shadowing does not help.

I do not believe that a lack of hardware power is the cause of the issue. At the most, the process belonging to the game was only hitting 2GB of RAM with nothing else of significance running in my background (barring Steam).

The CPU usage wasn't really notable as doing anything crazy.

I frankly don't really care about the lack of resolution to this game's issues. But it sure is kinda disappointing for people who actually give a crap about these kinds of games. But, for all I know, there's better sims out there. So whatever.

Just thought I'd help you guys troubleshoot, as you probably don't have much of a community to gather support from.

That wasn't supposed to sound as insulting as it might.

USA Trucker 01-01-2012 08:44 PM

Hello & welcome to the forum.

Your system far exceeds the game requirements, as does mine. I don’t get frame reductions as drastic as others with lessor specs. The game is poorly optimized, and the lower end computers just simply can’t handle this game well. Many have reported frame issues that make the game crawl along. One of the more notable areas was the SF Bridge, and other highly congested places. Therefore computer hardware, and the poor optimization of the game is certainly an issue.

The ones that actually get the game to run well, seem to like it. I know I do. Trucking sims aren’t for everyone. There’s no need to belittle people that are interested in these types of games as your last remark seems to imply. It’s a matter of taste. ;)

Kritz 01-02-2012 02:59 AM

I didn't make myself clear, sorry. When the game cycles to night time, the game becomes unplayable for me. 1-2 FPS at most. The game runs absolutely perfect at any other time of day, including the fade from afternoon to night. It is the moment that the game reaches night that it becomes unplayable for me.

I have tried turning down every setting. I have gone into .ini files and attempted to remove shadowing, reflections, etc from the game. I have tested in different cities and different times of day with different graphical settings. Night time drops the performance down to nothing.

Is there a way to disable night time during the story mode? Or is there a known solution to this issue?

I do have alternate hardware to test on if needed, but I'd sooner ask here.

madoyaghi 07-17-2012 04:38 AM

My game lags at night help !
 
Hey guys im new here ,i got my rnr from steam and i have some mods in it , but before i but any mods in the game start very nice noo lagging at all after when i drive for like 1 hour it start lagging too much and doesnt stop.

Manufacturer: Hewlett-Packard
Processor: AMD Athlon(tm) II X2 220 Processor (2 CPUs), ~2.8GHz
Memory: 6144MB RAM
Hard Drive :2 TB Total
Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti

This what i run RnR on

note it start lagging at 10:25 pm if sleep tell 5:25 am it works good !

USA Trucker 07-18-2012 10:58 PM

Hello, and welcome to the forum.:)

Check this post Here. Maximum/Recommended Requirements or above is best for this game. It's poorly optimized for CPU specs that are less.
