places where you have 25fps ( which is not necessarly bad ) or is it fixed stable 25fps ( see vsync ) ?

Hi MichalMA

I’ve decided to do a complete uninstall and install. I thought I had taken out all of the addon’s but apparently I missed a couple so I decided to do the uninstalled instead. Thanks for the advice, hopefully this will fix the problem.


If you not made other changes in external tools ( eg. nvidia controll ) which are possible reseted, a re-install wil change nothing. You get the same files on disc and it’s only big waste of time.

Therefore the questions about settings, that we can possible give hints :slight_smile:

The amount and kind of installed Add-Ons are of course one aspect which can lower fps.
Another thing can be vsync… e.g. 25 is the a step(20 in this game) for a 75fps monitor.
