    Actually, it's been 3 1/2 years, if you look at the first post. This has been going on since the new engine back in Alpha 11.

    Alpha 10.4 has been my favorite version of the game and I don't think it'll ever change.

      Fox, in your opinion has the micro stutter become worse than it was when originally reported a few year back? For me the A16 micro stutter was barely there and didn't bother me too much, but with A17e, I can't play for more than half an hour before I feel like throwing up.

        Well, with every new major version of the game brings less optimization, so it does make the stutter issues less subtle. Unstable frame time is one of the big ones for this game, so even though your frame rate looks ok or good, it's a very inaccurate way to see how stable and smooth the gameplay is as it only shows the amount of frames per second but not the time between each frame, which means you could see 60 frames really quickly within a second but there's a half second pause during that time. I might look into finding a way to see how bad the frame time really is with every version that releases.

        And yes, stutter issues did get better over the years (though never completely gone), but with A17 given how demanding on hardware it is and how it isn't at all optimized, it doesn't surprise me that stutter issues would become more noticeable again.

          I have dropped from 45-60 FPS on medium - high settings down to 10-15 FPS with the absolute lowest settings. Movement lags, I can spend 10+ seconds spinning in a circle because the mouse works but the keyboard seems to have locked up. I just want to loot a bird nest but I can't until I stop walking forward.

          I have completely removed the game and all its folders then reinstalled. Same problem.

              This is the same issue I am having, but is not related to this topic, perhaps this should be moved to the thread I started https://7daystodie.com/forums/showth...ith-control-UI

                Still a problem in A18. Not as bad as A17, we avoided this version because of how stuttery it was. A16 was much much smoother.

                FYI, Although new to the forums I've been a long time reader of these forums. The forums have been very informative with plenty of suggestions etc which have all been done and tried to no evail. The gfx card is an nVidia, not an ATI that currently seems to have some known issues with graphics in A18 Experimental.

                  This problem is ruining my life.

                  I tried lowest graphics settings (with lower 16:9 resolutions too) and the problem was still there, no improvement at all. Lowest settings or maximum settings makes no difference at all.


                  My computer specs:
                  OS: Win7 x64 (no antivirus, no firewall, no b.s. running in the background aside from RivaTuner and PrecisionX)
                  Res: 1600x1200 (4:3)
                  CPU: Phenom II X4 965 @ default 3.4GHz
                  RAM: 8GB ddr3
                  HDD: 320GB Sata 6GB/s (EDIT: tried it on a Samsung EVO 250GB SSD with Alpha 12.5, no difference at all)
                  GPU: GTX 660 S2 3GB (tried old drivers and latest drivers)


                  I've done all kinds of tests already and have confirmed that I'm not the only one with this issue. Hardware doesn't seem to make any difference. It's not a graphics quality related issue. It has to be a mechanical issue within the game / new engine that seems to be only noticeable to those paying attention.

                  While moving in game and looking at the third party software on the secondary monitor, my CPU peaked at 80% for the first 2 cores, averaged 60% for the first 2 cores, 40% for the other 2 cores. When not moving, 23% average for all 4 cores.

                  The graphics card on medium-high settings barely broke a sweat, temps were still low.

                  Ram never reached past 3GB used.


                  For everyone else... post your feedback on this exact issue (do not post about low fps or anything else unrelated), it might help the devs figure this one out. (and prove that I'm not the only one with this issue, lol)
                  Listen, I searched the forums far and wide. Ive looked all over the google, and sylenthunder was trying to help me with this earlier this week.

                  But im here, Posting on this post. Cause this is what im sure he was referring to when he mentioned your name while helping me.

                  I play for about 10 mins, Flawlessly. And then the freezing starts.
                  Help?

                    I don't think this thread is for "Help". Try posting a PC Bug Report in that thread or ask
                    for help in the General Support thread.
