A rather unimpressive FPS...
Wonder if you could help. I have recently upgraded the system to Windows 10, but it seems that my FPS count on GTA has dropped ever since. My graphics card is GTX950M.
Right now, I can't seem to pierce through the 35FPS cap. I don't really have any elaborate mods installed apart from VisualV. No add-on cars or replacements. Just scripts (about 7-10 of 'em).
GPU drivers are up to date and I have also tried to tamper with the Nvidia control panel but that didn't help.
I heard that the system may run slower at the start of using Win 10 - is this true?
Prior to the upgrade I had a stable performance ranging from 45 up to 60 frames. No idea what might have happened in the meantime.
@TheMurderousCricket is your vsync' set to half?
@TheHaqAttaq - It's set to full as far as I can tell, but it wasn't that. Thanks for chiming in though!
I figured this out myself. Turns out the Xbox Game Bar is the culprit (despite me having no Xbox controller, go figure) because once I disabled it, the FPS rate improved considerably. I can run the game at a steady average of 56FPS again.
I seriously can't grasp why OS and GPU developers keep making gamers "happy" with such a trashy game recording software! The same goes for GeForce Experience - apart from a laggy gameplay they offer overclocked "optimal" settings that are downright dangerous!
Sure, it's fun to have a native recording program. But not when it eats up half of your resources, for the love of...
@TheMurderousCricket Lmao', I feel ya'...
Whoa... Another discovery...
I tried to delete some scripts from my folder and it turns out that the "Air Superiority" modification is a real pair of concrete shoes...
When I removed this mod from the scripts, my FPS went up by further 10-15 points or so. Wonder why did I notice it only now.
It is a nice mod with great air combat. But it is very poorly written I'd say.
