Some wierd kind of lag [SOLVED]


I have encountered a weird kind of lag since Evolve Stage 2 started, do mind that I had no problem what so ever with it before.

The lag starts in the Menu screen. The animated Goliath starts lagging whenever I move the mouse when the mouse is still there is no lag what so ever.
There is also lag in game. There is no lag when I run around the map, the lag only starts when I engage in any form of combat.

I have found a solution to my problem.

AMD have a build in Shader-cache you will have to turn it off to stop the lag.

You can turn it off by going to global video settings and turn it off there.


Yes, the game launched with some missing shaders that are causing lag for some people.
The Devs are aware and working on it, but I’m glad you found a work-around :slight_smile:


Do not turn OFF shader cache from AMD on Global Profile, turn it OFF on Evolve Profile.

PS: Turning OFF the cache won’t eliminate the stutter, best way is to play the game and let the game build cache, after a few hours the stutter should be gone.
