    If you read in game announcements BPG has geforce experience as the issue that is causing FPS lag. Unfortunately this is simply not true it is the driver itself (at least in my case and hopefully others). I run MSI Afterburner so I can monitor my video cards (Maxwell Titan X) voltage and speed, when I was using the latest Nvidia driver 388.59 my video card would start idling (go into power saving mode/downclock and downvolt) and give me sub par performance for no reason at all, with or without geforce experience installed. After a lot of trial and error what I found to finally work was to simply revert to this driver http://www.guru3d.com/files-details/geforce-388-13-whql-driver-download.html. Before you do this however I recommend you use this program according to the instructions specifically http://www.guru3d.com/files-details/display-driver-uninstaller-download.html. You will need to be able to start in safe mode if you use DDU as recommended, this is outlined here https://www.digitalcitizen.life/4-ways-boot-safe-mode-windows-10 After doing this you should be able to install the full geforce suite (including experience) and not get any different performance, so long it is the geforce experience that accompanies the 388.13 download. I have included my cpuz validated system stats for BPG in case it could be hardware specific and my prognosis is incorrect right here ---------------> https://valid.x86.fr/rvki63 After switching to this driver my GPU no longer idles, which was causing sub 100 FPS in almost every scenario. I am also able to record with little to no frame rate loss (200 FPS+) with the version of geforce experience that accompanies this driver in all situations. I have also included a poll for people to let everyone know if this worked or not. Keep in mind if you have never used a program like MSI Afterburner that monitors the voltage and speed of your video card you may have never noticed these things. You can check your driver version by right clicking your desk top background, going into the nvidia control panel/help/system information. GL i hope this helps a lot of people, If you want some help with it feel free to pm me in game @ "Gender Neutral" or "Tender Sprinkles".

    I'll give it a try. So far everytime I've gotten the fps bug I spawn all my mounts and just get on one and it goes away until next port

    It took me from sub 100 to 230+, which is what I should be sitting at with my computer.

    Definitely works, I have had zero FPS issues since rolling back about 2 weeks ago.

    When nvidia releases a current working driver, or BPG fixes the issue on there end. I'd be ready too keep using the older driver.

    Is there any hope of BPG fixing this on their end?

    It is a drive issue how is BPG suppose to fix it. I am running older drivers no issue. How do you propose BPG fixes the driver issue?

    I love when the fix for problems is something I have to do to my computer that works perfectly fine with every other game. Isn't that a hint to the dev team they need to fix something on their end?

    Now I'm better with fps, try this, on game video options put borderless and anisotropic high, then on Nvidia global options activate v sync and restart the game. Now my only problem is that in borderless I can't adjust brightness, but is not a big problem. During siege now i have 60 fps very fluid, no more video lag!
