  • Performance issues on higher end pc

    Hi!

    I am having performance problems where fps is around 45 or with drops under 40 especially with rotating the camera. The selection boxes and move lines with a bigger number of units selected make things even worse.

    This is a constant throughout the game. I used to have a gtx 970, switching to 1070 didn't make any difference.

    I tried reinstalling, verifying files on steam, running the game in dx9 mode, switching off hyperthreading and some other suggestions that I don't even remember anymore since it's been 2 years...

    My rig:

    CPU: i7 6700 (not K)
    GPU: gtx 1070 (gigabyte G1)
    RAM: kingston ddr4 16gb
    OS: Windows 10

    Also adding dxdiag,and the game's output text log...

    Hello Hellmaker,

    Thanks for reporting this issue and for including your Output log and DxDiag. It is a known issue that we are still trying to track the cause of, and each piece of data is helpful. We believe it may have something to do with the version of Unity DoK was built in, but are not entirely sure at this time.

    Cheers,

    Iain

      Glad this issue is still being looked after. I haven't been able to continue the campaign because the framerate would drop to the 20s or lower especially when there's alot of units in sight.
      Hopefully this gets resolved soon.

          Dracon, can you provide some more details on the issue you are seeing?

          Cheers,

            So after some months, did anything come out of you looking into this problem? I'm still really hopeful that one day I can play DOK in all it's glory!

              Hello Hellmaker,

              Alas still no solution. The issue appears to be extremely rare and we have yet to find any commonality between people experiencing this issue beyond "high end systems".

              We have been unable to reproduce the issue internally.

              Cheers,

              Iain

                    Hi Iain,

                    Has there been any update regarding the potential problem causing the frame stutters or any potential things that players could test beforehand?

                    One difference I've noticed is that turning off the HUD definitely helps performance. A bit weird that object information relating to a unit could actually slow down the game though.

                      Hi!

                      First of all, thanks to Iain for helping me with my account issues

                      Now, I'm also having this weird low GPU and CPU usage. I have tried running the game on exclusive fullscreen, setting high performance mode on windows 10 energy settings, I have also tried the dx9 option... none of that worked. The game's version is 1.3, steam obviously. I love the game, it's playable even when the framerate dips down to 20 but it's just a real shame because it's a great game!

                      Anyways, I hope this helps in some way.

                      Best regards.

                        Can you speak more on the low CPU and GPU usage you are seeing?

                        Cheers,

                          Basically, the game runs at 60 fps when there are very little units or action on screen. As the number of units grows, the fps start to get lower and lower. GPU and CPU usage never ever reachers 100%, not even close in fact as the CPU tends to stay at around 60% use and the gpu is barely being used, highest I have seen is 38. As you can see in the screenshot, both GPU and CPU are very stable around those numbers. It's very weird.

                          I also tried disabling the high precision event timer in my bios, but, there was no difference in performance. If there are any other tests or ideas then I'd be happy to try them and come back here with the results!

                            Can you post a screen shot of your video settings in game. I can replicate the issue on my work station which also has a 1060.

                            Cheers,

                              Here you go! It's in Spanish but everything should be in the same place If not let me know and I will switch the language.

                              Best regards.
