OpenBVE locked at 40fps
« on: September 25, 2017, 10:51:56 am »
After I got my new laptop in fall July, I noticed not a long time ago that my framerates won't go above 40. I thought it was because my anti-aliasing was set to max and was quite satisfied to get 40fps. But I realized that I still have 40 fps on low detailed trains and routes, even with the anti-aliasing completely disabled! And my specs are:   -Intel Core i5  6300HQ 2.30Ghz
                                            -Nvidia Geforce GTX950M 4GB
                                            -8GB of RAM
                                            -SSD 120 Go and HDD 1To (OpenBVE is on SSD)
                                            -Windows 10 x64bit

Game version is: 1.5.1.5 and I run it with the High performance Nvidia settings of course. But OpenBVE 1.4.3.1 runs at 60 fps.

For example: I have 25fps in exterior view with the R142A (since it's a very high detailed train) on v1.5.1.5 while on v1.4.3.1 I get 35fps. WTF?

It's funny because for me I never achieved more than 15 fps with the 1.4.3.1 but it runs perfectly fine on 1.5.1.3 where I can go to 70 fps

That's strange and weird issue. My PC runs OpenBVE at 60 fps, and depending on the detail train, exterior will be fairly good too, ranging from 60 (low detail) to 30 (the 68 that was recently released). I wonder if your issue has to be with the 3D settings of the Nvidia Graphics card, as i have the same 950m card but with 2 GB.

I still don't know. I remember when I played around with 3D settings with OpenBVE via the Nvidia control panel, but I messed up a little and had 20fps on the R30 so I removed OpenBVE from the custom graphic 3D settings and set it back to basic high performance settings and the game got back to normal (still 40fps), I might try again messing with graphic settings. The second thing I thought about would be upgrading to 1.5.2 version hoping to get more framerates but I'm not sure because I already heard that people have issues with it so I might stay with 1.5.1.5 because it's working good unlike the previous 1.5.1 versions

Reinstall the latest graphics driver (or download the latest one if you haven't yet) to clear any settings that might be the issue. I am currently running OpenBVE version 1.5.2.1 right now with no issues, 60 fps max. I don't know if the latest (1.5.2.3) will cause any issues with gameplay.
