I haven't been using AMS very much lately and there have been a couple updates in the last few weeks since I have used the time trials or the sim. I have also just had a hard drive issue and had to install a new hard drive, new OS, and everything else from scratch. I have noticed some issues when I used AMS in the last couple days. I am hoping someone can help give me insight into whether it is coming from the sim or from my computer. (Also I am running windows 7 and while I have done several hundred updates, they seem to keep coming in, so it looks like there are still some more updates available.) First thing is that the fps seemed to drop and it was not running particularly smooth. I noticed this on Suzuka east, and I know that Suzuka can sometimes run a little lower fps than the average tracks. I had to lower my visual settings noticeably lower than before. Perhaps something with the game or the new sweetfx profiles could affect that? Second, I tried the time trials for the first time in a while (first time with the shared "fetch" setup feature) and I noticed that anytime I did my fastest lap that there would be a very noticeable stutter after the finish line. Any thoughts? Lastly, at one point I had the program seemingly freeze, and it was stuck on the screen with no movement or sound, and I could not escape or alt tab out, I had to ctrl alt delete, then it said the program stopped working. I have never had that happen with AMS, but a few days ago I did have pretty much the same thing happen on rf2. I thought it was a rf2 problem, but now I am thinking perhaps it is my computer. I am not fantastic with computers, but I get along okay for the most part but this is my first time having to start completely from scratch. Any thoughts or suggestions?
