How to MAX fps through a Real Fullscreen Mode:

12 posts in this topic

Posted

Hello dear ones,

it took me quite a while to figure this out. I had lots of fps issues in this game and all were coming from the game altering your actual resolution and also and most importantly your refresh rate. Here is the solution:

The game has a problem with adjusting the game window settings (GWS) to a "real fullscreen". Often when you choose fullscreen (FS), it doesnt adjust to an actual fullscreen mode, but to merely a windowed-FS. A real FS is achieved when you see your monitor going blank and feel/see how it is "locking into the game". You know what effect I mean, I can only describe it that way. Simply going blank, black for a second is not enough.

The correct way is when you tab out, your game goes black for a second and then enables windowed-FS and asks you to keep it or go back into FS. After that you have to alt-tab again to be in your OS. That is proof that you were in real FS mode. If that does not happen, the game has simply adjusted to windowed-FS again. And it does that very often, no idea when and why.

The windowed fullscreen mode and windowed mode, both have huge performance issues. When you go Fullscreen, you will in this game get a solid FPS increase of around 20-30fps. It is very noticable.

... quoting me from another thread, seeing that this infor was needed:

The solution is rarely mentioned because so obvious: It is a resolution issue. Change your ingame resolution to FULLSCREEN and actually wait and see how your monitor blanks our and "locks into the game". If that happens, you are golden. If the game does not do that, and it often doesnt, it is a "fake fullscreen" and you are just again in FS-windowed. Or sometimes (but thats clearly to be noticed) in windowed mode.

The game changes the game window settings (GWS) guaranteed, when you change your resolution with it. Meaning: Just changing the GWS to .. fullscreen, did not do the trick for me, very often. The game didnt recognize and only did if you change the reso with the GWS to a lower one, and then after it gets registered, to a higher one / your prefered.

It took me quite some time to figure out and there are no clear indications anywhere. Not found a single post on the entire web, showing the correct procedure. But as always, if you have a problem, sooner or later you find out the answer for yourself. You have all the tools, my friend, dont need to always ask others.

The effect of this is solid 20-30fps increase for me.

PS: Forget calpheon and heidel. Esp calpheon is completely broken. You can notice an intense frame drop even when playing on super-low. All tested. Its a programming issue. Test all of this outside of this/these cities.

 All the best

I have never experienced this, I have run both full screen and fs windowed, and get the same FPS. The only time I had an issue with FS windowed is when I was running 2 monitors and one was G-sync, and the other wasn't. But I am not sure what your setup is, or what your trying to describe here. The title is kind of a bait, people come here to see what settings you have used to get max FPS, and you haven't shared anything other than your specific setup, sometimes has problems.

it is very simple, if you're confused it might be because you are stupid. 

Settings- Full screen - more FPS

Do not use windowed full screen.

How it's worded is actually very confusing.

All the OP had to write are 2 sentences. "Game doesn't use real full screen. To enable real full screen, switch it to full screen with a lower resolution, then change the resolution back." He wrote a block of text but the main points weren't even clear.

 

An easier way of doing it is always start the game in full screen from your launcher.

The performance increase is more significant when you're running SLI since it will only make use of the additional cards in exclusive mode (actual fullscreen). 

The issue of the client not going into exclusive mode was not a problem in the beginning. It came a few patches in, and I don't know how to made it so. The solution I found, which is still more tedious than just logging into the game, is setting the game to fullscreen through the login client everytime I login. If I start the game in fullscreen, I can switch between fullscreen, windowed fullscreen, and windowed mode without a problem. I often log out in windowed fullscreen and forget to switch it in the login client though.

Yea, no offence to the OP, but that has to be one of the worst example of communication I've ever seen in my life. I only know what he meant because I already know how to fix it.

Just going to quote him here because he is 100% correct. When I play with my monitors in a certain configuration I get a 3240x1980 res that is quite taxing on a single 770, luckily the game does include support for SLI and uses it to great effect. I namely use my other two monitors for editing textures and models on the fly as I sample benchmark works in games to get a feel of how work is progressing. For the first time I've actually considered using them for gaming instead of workstation extensions as the game looks stunning on a higher res such as this.

 

And its playable on higher settings too which just tickles me pink for how old this PC is by todays standards *(Note not HIGHEST, higher 40+Fps)

Well, OP is not wrong. there is a performance boost in fullscreen mode. Especially for SLI users like myself. However, since Mediah 'true' fullscreen is broken. I  managed to get it to work earlier today for a few minutes until i alt-tabbed while riding somewhere, but no luck since.

I've added a screenshot on what must happen, if you run the proper and "real" fullscreen mode, when you tab out. You get this info box. If this is not the case, you are running the "fake fullscreen".
