Cabot and Particles


#1

So my teammates have been having issues with Cabots dusk tag in a dome, they seem to lose frame rate when I use it.

Dunno if this is commonly known or if they’re is a fix, they did fix they’re settings to try and help but apparently it doesn’t work so well


#2

What system are you on?


#3

i personally never have problems with them.

i know Shredder has problems with them though


#4

I think some people have the same issue when using Slim’s Spore Cloud as well.


#5

Are the lag issues always for PC? I would assume if it was for console it would be on all consoles of that type.


#6

He’s on the PC. Played with them the other night.

The dust cloud also eats my FPS.


#7

Yeah PC player and they lag hard when I Dusk Tag and it’s getting to the point I can’t casually use it when needed


#8

What are your specs if you have this issue. I’m wondering if it’s video card specific or something else. Also what OS.


#9

It happens to me as well.

It’s not really that severe, but does cost me about 5 to 10 frames while the Dust Tag particles are active. Not really a mystery, the dust particles are just many details to render.
Thinking about it now, it might not be a bad idea to perhaps cut those particles in half.


#10

Cabot’s dust tag is also the most framerate killing thing for me. Depending on how much of my screen it takes up I lose between 10-20 FPS I think. I usually run at 60 FPS, so it’s not like I’m helpless from the FPS drop once it happens, but it’s just a bit frustrating :slightly_smiling:


#11

Yep! I used to have this back on my like, 4 year old AMD card. I dunno if it’s a hardware problem but it sure was for me. Wherever I looked when there was dust, I’d get massive frame drops, look away, all’s well. xD


#12

Yeah, Dust Tag kills my FPS, so does heavy rain and dust storms to a lesser degree.

Though I just realise that despite thinking I bought a 4GB video card, I only bought a 2GB one… how did I miss that for so long?!


#13

this happens to me also…someone told me it’s the cryengine and to turn down the anti-aliasing(?) not sure what that is or how I would do this


#14

I have the same issues

SLI 2 x 780 GTX on 4K monitor. I am always at 60 fps but with Cabot and Slim particules it is arround 10~20 fps.

I have the same problem If I downscale my resolution at 1440p and 1080p even though I use 1 or 2 graphics cards.

I tried to downgrade the graphic drivers, but the game ie still laggy in cabot dust.


#15

OS: Win 7 64 bit.

My own rig is on the low-end for Evolve:
8 gig of Ram
Intel i5-3570K (3.4 GHz)
NVIDIA 660 (2 GB VRam)

Most of the eye candy is disabled though so I can actually play the game. The storms I don’t have a problem with, it’s looking directly at the dust cloud at close range and the heavy rain on Murder Pits also eats my FPS.


#16

If I remember correctly this problem comes from anti-virus programs, not the hardware. This problem has been known for a while, as far as I know it can be solved by making evolve an exception to the anti-virus software.


#17

but then the monsters can get through!


#18

Never have this problem on PS4


#19

Any solutions for these people?


#20

other than manually changing graphics settings, dont know. shadows? particles (duh).
