Lagspikes!

Discussion in 'Formula SimRacing' started by Rob van Starkenburg, Oct 15, 2012.

  1. Hello, im experiancing lagspikes wich are really effecting driving. I dont know since when i got this problem but its getting really annoying now.

    Im running rfactor on 200 to 500 frames per second so thats not the problem. But one thing i found out is really wierd to me. I got 8 cores, rfactor only uses 4 cores 1/3/5/7. Now the 1st one is maxing out all the time when driving. The other three are working a littlebit. Maby that has something to do with the problem.

    The lagspikes are short but while they are happening i cant shift. And when steering into the corner the car wont do anything until the lagspike is gone. So i miss the inside of the corner a lot of times because of that.

    If anyone knows how to fix this, post a commend here. Ore contact me via mail ore msn if you have me.
     
  2. Rob, are you using the fullproc parameter?

    Have you under/overclocked either your CPU or GFX card? This can occasionally cause problems with rF online.
     
  4. hehe, i dont even know what a fullproc parameter is.
    And im not overclocking anything, thats the wierd thing about it.
    I dident change anything.
     
  5. Does it happen on other games? If you play any ;)

  7. Stefan I hope you are right, because I`ve got these symptoms too.
     
  8. Try loading the game adding +fullproc at the end (eg. "C:\Program Files\rFactor\rFactor.exe" +fullproc ). You can also activate it from FSR Manager by clicking the "Fullproc command" checkbox. That setting allows rFactor to take better advantage of multi-core CPUs. Not sure if it will solve your lagspikes but it should at least avoid maxing out one core at 100% all the time.
     
  9. One program i knew of that it was creating lagspikes was msn. But still i had it sometimes even msn on. I dident install new software ore anything.

    I cleaned up my pc by removing dust, since then i dont have any problems.

    And i play other games.
    Battlefield 3 :D Only chadows on medium, the rest maxed out. 60/90 FPS constantly.
