It is driving me nuts that I can’t diagnose this. Every 60 seconds I get a huge frameitime spike which causes a stutter. It is like clock work.
I have tied everything that I can think of, so I am calling on the collective wisdom for help. I have:
Clean install of the latest Nvidia driver;
Turned off, as much as windows will allow, Malware and defender stuff;
Turned off search indexing;
Uninstalled almost everything from the PC:
Turned off all data and AI stuff.
It happens with or without mods. I am now thinking it is baked into the game engine.
I can’t see anything that’s visually upsetting other than the line on the graph. If you were inside the plane instead of micro-monitoring the details, you wouldn’t notice it was happening.
I got this. Freezing for 2 seconds, running for 1/2 second, freezing for 2 seconds, returning to normal. Randomly. Ten minutes or an hour into a flight. Every few minutes or never. It’s happened on approach, over cities, and over Antarctica.
I have this issue also. Had no problems before a few days ago and all of-a-sudden stutters and lag every minute or so. Also uninstalled everything from my PC that I could, updated drivers, etc, with no luck. Then I started seeing articles that Asobo added real-time snow to the weather model. Probably a background update that didn’t require a download for users. I wonder if that “weather update” is the reason for this stuttering…
Every day for the last 4 months lol. I was running smoothly until literally 2 days ago and am now also having the issue described by the OP. I can;t figure out where its coming from either. I only use my PC for FS and nothing else. Had rolling cache on all along and turned it off with no difference. I get the stutter, lag, stutter, freeze, back to smooth for a while, then repeat. Its driving me crazy. Seeing this thread gave me hope Im not alone.
As I was typing a response on another thread, my system suddenly became an old 286, took 10 seconds for the start menu to pop up. Turns out we had someone working in the network room changing out a switch.
I keep thinking you have a data flow issue and this sudden com lag made me think… Try a router reboot. Power down your computer first then cold restart your system once the router has rebooted.
Checked your startup for any thing loading that could be auto checking for updates? Check also task manager for running tasks. Any apps like backup, auto save, malware set to check every minute. Any add ons accessing internet. Anything else running when msfs running. Wired or wifi. Anything else connected to your network that could be accessing internet every 60.
I did this. Even called comcast to make sure there was nothing going in with the router in the background. They said everything is fine. I also rebooted it several times, the hard reset and full-power down, unplug and plug back in with no improvement. I was thinking of swapping the router, might have to go through with that. I have no other programs loading up at start-up or other processes that could be interferring.
