    it's not exactly pvp-related content, but it's totally fucking my pvp experience for a year.

    randomly, without any additional symptoms, my game starts to constantly decrease the fps to the point where it is not possible to aim at the opponent.

    In the video sent as an example, it starts at 10 seconds.



    the computer im using to play darkfall is a
    i5 9600k (not oc),
    video card is a RTX 2070 (not oc),
    16 GB MEM RAM (not oc).
    Win 10.


    im getting it for like 1 year and im kinda used to play with it... normally i parry until it pass or i just get fucked during the process. it happens each 3-5 minutes. (only happen on darkfall)

    idk if only watching it, it feels sucks enough but when you're playing it feels super annoying.

    i am posting in the hope that someone has been affected by the same problem and has solved this.

    That's interesting, maybe a memory leak issue of some kind

    If you haven’t completely wiped your computer and installed a fresh os you probably should just do it and rule it out.

    Can you check the Windows event log if there are some events in the log around the time this is happening?
    Can you send the client_1.log to overseer bot on discord? Please also tell the timestamp when the fps drops are happening if possible. Write down the times, and send the client_1.log right after exiting the game.
    After watching the video, i would suspect audio loading or playing, as in the video there are sounds playing just when the fps drop happens.
    USB devices can cause lags like that too.
    Does this happen only during combat, or even if you are doing nothing?

    thanks for the help btw?
    --- Post updated ---
    hi @Arwill , thanks for the return.

    im sending the client_1.log, didnt log again until now so the client would be fine for the analysis.

    i never felt something wrong with the audio during this issue, it feels like a exclusive abrupt fps drop.

    also, its happen randomily, combating or not.

    i play other games, im only getting it on darkfall.

    I experienced something like this just with Darkfall.

    It started happening after some Darkfall Patch last year, on win 7 and win 10.

    I had DF installed on both versions of windows and everything was fine...
    Until some patch landed somewhere in 2019.


    When I played the game and had this issue it happened just once, normally 8 to 10 minutes after logging in.
    Then it would go away and just happen again if I would quit the game and log back in.

    I have all the bloatware of win 10 disabled and/or uninstalled, as well as Win 10 game recording stuff (I use the nvidia geforce experience to capture).

    DF is the only game where I had this Issue.


    I don't believe you need to reinstall anything from scratch.
    It is probably an issue resulting from some kind of Hardware+Darkfall combination.

    I'm no expert but it seems like the graphics start being rendered by the CPU for some reason, for some seconds, and then it switches back to the graphics card handling the load.

    But if you wanna see if this happens with a new installation of Windows, you should do this before installing windows from scratch:

    - Try to use a virtual machine.
    Just use Virtual Box or VM workstation with a Win 10 fresh install and you don't even need to activate it to check if the same happens while you play DF.

    Had very similar if not same thing. NVIDIA GeForce Experience was the problem.

    I also had this problem, because I let geforce expirience record automatically.

    I actually currently have the same issue, put in a ticket to the overseer a couple weeks ago but was just told it was on my end.

    Do you know the exact issue? Like is it a certain feature in geforce experience I need to turn off or some type of option?

    Are you talking about the instant replay feature that they have (allows you to record up to 20min in footage)? So the solution is to turn that off and just manually record instead?

    Yeah ill try it out, mine is a little different from what the OP stated. In my case I get these stutters when the first engagement starts and when loading into villages, but it doesn't happen all the time.

    There are some hints in the log, but it is not sure.

    Can you check some things, to be sure to rule them out?

    You wrote that this is happening even if you are doing nothing with the character, right?
    Can you login into the game, switch to windowed mode. Then open the task manager in Windows, and order the running processes by CPU usage. Then watch the game and the task manager side by side, an see if some process is spiking to the top, when the FPS drop happens ingame. Or if the CPU or GPU usage (or other value in the list, network or disk) of the game itself is spiking up when the FPS drop is happening.

    Do you have an USB hub connected, or USB/wireless headset? Can you try the game without those connected? Perhaps with different keyboard and mouse?

    Does an FPS drop happen when vertical sync is enabled?

    Then i can see in the log some not so typical messages. Related to skills, effects, repeated loading of stuff, for example. So it would be better to test by doing nothing with the character instead of in combat.

    Do you have an alt character, or can you create one? Is it happening with that one too?

    Can you turn off the sound in the game, and see if the problem persist?

    If it is only happening during combat, then one suspect is when you switch weapons. Is there something special about how you parry, i see it mentioned in the log a lot? I see the Exploding Charge spell mentioned in the log a lot as well.

    If you are venturous with IT stuff, you could try diagnostic software like Intel Vtune, Nvidia Nsight or Microsoft Performance Toolkit. You can record the whole system state with Windows Performance Analyzer while playing the game. If you send me the ETL file it generates, i could look into that too.
