NVIDIA Lag Spikes [SOLVED!]

9 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

Just want to share this in case anyone else goes through it. I have a GeForce GTX750 Ti. Since about 2 patches back, I have had the following problems....

1. When starting game and Daum/Pearl logos fade, it fades to black and takes about 3-5 minutes for "start game" screen to show.

2. While playing, almost every minute I would get a "stuttered"/double lag spike lasting from 3-10seconds....lag....unfreeze...lag.

3. When trying to exit game, it would just freeze. I would have to end it via Task Manager.

 

It was driving me nuts!...especially losing ropes when taming horses and a lag spike would hit.

The fix? First....upgraded to newest vid card drivers(364.51)....which didn't help much(any?). Second....add Black Desert to my GeForce Experience application. THIS fixed it!!!

 

Now the problem is that Black Desert shows on the GeForce Experience site but does not detect in the application. But someone found a way (posted on reddit). Simply change the name of your launcher...."Black Desert Online Launcher.exe" to "blackdesert_launcher.exe"....then refresh your game list in the GeForce Experience app and viola...it will see it!

 

DO NOT launch the game from the GeForce Experience app. Just launch it from your newly renamed blackdesert_launcher.exe (you likely have a shortcut for it and you will need to change it's properties to use the newly named one). I also changed the setting in game to what the GeForce Experience app suggested as well.

 

Now...game is running great once more!!! Hope this helps others.

So we change the desktop launcher name or the name in the Black Desert Folder? Tried both and still don't see it in Geforce Experience.

The one in your Program Files(x86) directory....that one....make sure also that you have "show file extensions" set on the file name or if it is hidden, you might be accidentally naming it "blackdesert_launcher.exe.exe"....so if you have the extension hidden, just delete off the ".exe" part from what you renamed. Make sense?
