(0.16.51) Discord owerlay reduces FPS by 45%.

Post by Tonchek » Mon Jan 07, 2019 7:47 pm

Hi.

I went thru the forum and i didn't saw this one posted yet or i am blind -.- .
Soo when i had opened at the same time both discord and factorio with freshly created world my fps was at the 30 to 35 fps.
Then i quit Discord it went up to 60. I started discord back on and it went down again. i only the noticed some small icon of my Nickname in the upper right corner. i went to discord settings and disabled overlay same moment as i did that FPS went back up. it must also be known that if i fully zoom out with or without overlay my fps sink to 25... Mybe its just my pc that bad...

My system:
Win 10 64bit
AMD fx 6100 @4GHz
16GB of RAM
Sapphire Radeon Dual-X R9 280X 3G
(i know i know....)

Please let me know if this bug has alrdy been found and i am just repeting someone else..

Thanks for the report however we don't do anything different when software uses overlays vs not so any issue(s) you're having you'll have to bring up with the people who made the overlays.

However based off you saying your FPS drops when zoomed out I suspect it's just a matter of your GPU not being able to keep up with everything it's being asked to do.
If you want to get ahold of me I'm almost always on Discord.

Try changing graphics quality from "low" to "normal", and video memory usage from "medium" to "all" and atlas texture size to what ever the largest it lets you select.

Awesome.

It actually stays in upper 50 now even when zoomed fully out and walking around.

Thank you.

You can close this thread now.

Thank you again.
