It may be the hottest new game on the market but as this video shows, Dying Light has some issues with stuttering and frames, even on a PC well above the suggested specs.
New information added to video with a work around fix.
Every PC game suffering these kind of issues
Your name suits you.
Im having none of these issues at all, running it on a high end PC and frame rate is steady as a rock and 60 FPS, Im about 35 hours into it in the second town
It runs great on my PC with i5 2500k, GTX 970, 8GB RAM and a G-Sync monitor. All of my games do, in fact.
This is bad though its almost unplayable. First hour or so it worked fine butnot now. Patch only made it worse.
when i left the game as default i had same issues. but never have i had a game wrok perfect on pc with recomend settings. i have always had to turn to something off or down. this is the headache with pc gaming imo. because there are too many scenarios of setup.
Garentvk, your computer is good enough to run the game?
It is conveniently odd that he chooses not to say what graphics card he's using. I use ultra settings on an i5 & a "2gb Nvidia" so my rig is a lower spec however it flys on my machine. Until the goo shooter gets involved then fps drops. Strange.
I7 quad core. 8gb ddr 3 ram 2gb Nvidua card, all above the recommended specs for the game. On their forums, this apears to be a common problem.
Those specs don't really say much. For example an i7 sandy bridge CPU won't perform as good as an i7 Haswell CPU even though both are i7 quad core CPUs. For Nvidia cards they recommend the GTX 780 which has 3GB of VRAM. Also what exactly does unplayable mean? Does that mean you can't get a stable framerate even on lowest settings? Have you tried to reduce the draw distance because the devs have recommended to do that for now. And what resolution are you plaing on?
Just disable nvidia dof, and the game runs perfectly smooth... i get 5-10sec freezes and massive lags everytime the game loads a check point when i have nvidia dof enabled..
The game is fine, people just need to know how to properly adjust the graphics settings and not crank everything to MAX. Have a read... http://www.eurogamer.net/ar...
It was on default settings not cranked up. Company said its a known issue and they are working in it.
I don't have lag or stutter. Game runs smooth as silk. What's annoying is the game randomly crashing when I go off and do other things like killing zombies for loot for 30 mins or so. Then go back to the mission at hand, when I start the mission game crashes. Doesn't crash when I go straight from mission to mission. So basically I can't explore without the game crashing and losing all that progress. Kinda lame. i7 2700k quad core @ 3.5GHz gtx 770 2GB 16GB ram Runs solid 45-60fps on ultra.
my gtx 780 + i5 everything on ultra - stable 30fps shadow map on hight + distance of view 50% - 50-60fps my PS4 middle-low settings - 30fps
Lower the View Distance all the way down. It's hard to notice any changes except in the framerate, which goes up and stays there.
I play the game in 1440p at 60fps with no problem after patch 1.2
Thank you for the suggestions I will give it a go. It is a NVIDIA 750Ti 2GB by the way likely will go to the 960 or so soon.
Is the video only talking about problems on PC? I didn't watch it because I'm not having any lag or fps problems with the PS4 version.
