Hi all, When I first started racing in F1 2016 I used to have uses with graphics stuttering, lap stuttering, game crashes as well as computer freezes. It's pretty manageable now but I keep hearing of stuttering issues which I didn't know other people had so here's what I'd suggest doing before each race! 1) DO NOT RUN IN 144HZ. This was the cause of a number of game crashes for me. I currently use a 144Hz monitor but set the game to run at 100Hz as it's a known issue that this causes problems... my knowledge might be out of date regarding this, I don't know if it's still an issue or whether it was patched. I still don't do it though... 2) Huge change - Disable any secondary graphics card. On-board graphics, check if you have it and disable it before a race. This is a massive stuttering issue; without doing it I get game pauses/stutters 4-5 times a lap. Disabling it, I'll probably get one serious spike (3-5 seconds) once every 2 races. Hit windows key type Device Manager (and enter) expand 'Display adapters' Right click and disable device for your secondary card. 3) Unplug 2nd/3rd monitors. No idea why this game is any different to others but extra monitors == extra stuttering for some reason here. 4) Turn off un-required processes. Ctrl+Shift+Escape. Go to the processes tab. Do not leave Edge/Chrome/Firefox running whilst racing. I also actively go through and turn off Cortana, f.lux, Hyper-V, Oculus, Office, Skype, SVN. Your programs will vary but if you know what a program does and don't want it on, end task before racing. Flux and Oculus caused quite large crashing issues for me... 5) Turn off un-required services. Ctrl+Shift+Escape. Go to the services tab. There's a lot of stuff in here which shouldn't be touched so do not turn anything off if you don't know exactly what it does but you may find things such as adobe updates, XBox Live stuff and other updating software sitting here which you can pretty much permanently disable. If anyone wants me to look over a list of their services, let me know (don't post the list publicly). It won't just help with F1 but for some reason, this game is a lot more sensitive than others to all this stuff. Hope this helps... Mark.
