this night i have played with graphic settings
i have changed one thing at a time and then tried the quick mission “London sightseeing”
usually i had around 40fps low over buildings (less with full zoom)
(I used to fly a 90° bank turn over the city and look at the buildings just below me with the full zoom. This was the situation with more stutters for me)
i moved from few to unlimited. instead of worsening on my rig it improved smoothness and obviously visual quality
buildings far away don’t get textures and seems Lego boxes till they get close, with unlimited settings texture are loaded when the building are still far away, it’s all better to see but also faster, because the system don’t get stuck loading textures when you are close to it
moved down from original to medium and got slightly less stutters. (thou Original textures are much more beautiful to see!)
tried vsyinc on/off
over London it changed nothing so went back to vsyinc on
then after reading this thread
i tried this small app: BANDICAM
it’s similar to fraps with the options of capping the FPS
i set the max FPS to 40 and voila’ NO MORE STUTTERS the game was butter smooth!
also panning around with track-ir was more faster and better, and also shooting to planes is incredibly better!
a new game for me! Over the city at low altitude i got an incredible feeling of speed which previously was ruined by microstutters
PLS TRY IT and let me know if it works for you also!!!
ps in the end i also installed GameBooster an utility that disable all unnecessary running programs and windows seervices upon game start.
