CPU Usage Warning

    Since the 0.6.2 patch I downloaded this morning I'm constantly getting a "warning: CPU usage at 99%" flashing across the top of my screen. I know I don't have the best computer, but that message is super annoying. Is there a way to turn it off?

    Lower your settings or play with fewer AI opponents. It is a message to alert you that your PC is not good enough for the settings you are using.

    Not the best solution to be honest. I can manage to have 80+fps after race start and that message is still flashing. Isn't that enough?

    It might be a good idea to have the option to either turn it off or make it less obtrusive. I can have a perfectly playable session at 60 fps with admittedly high CPU usage, but the warning message constantly appears to the point where it becomes a distraction.

    happens on MP with full server or with few cars

    and i get 50-60 fps during the race without stuttering, silk smooth with all settings on high and foliage on low
    FX 6300 / GTX 950 amp

    To test your solution, even lowering the settings everything to low and 1280x720 the message still flashes

    I like this new message because I have a very weak CPU.
    For me it's the perfect indicator when to reduce AI opponents.

    @Arpadian : Which CPU do you have? I have an i5-3550 3.3 Ghz (It's only just enough to play ACC. :) )
    I can race with 12 AI opponents without CPU warning (good weather/day).
    If I race with 16 AI opponents I get the warning some times and if I race with more than 18 AI opponents I get the warning constantly.

    i posted my rig above your post and i don't play with AI, i don't like it, i bought ACC for the MP only, even on AC didn't even play the "career" mode
    but testing the AI, i can race with 10 before getting the warning still this shouldn't happen on MP since the CPU doesn't have to calculate 10 AI witch is very heavy cpu usage

    yes it is very unusual if it happens in MP. How about SP alone on the track? Do you see the warning as well?
    Can you post your logs so we can have a look?

    EDIT: also the steering wheel model pls.

    I suggest you place your pc specs in your signature.

    I'm sorry - I somehow overlooked it.
    I just found out that your CPU is from Q4 2012. Maybe it's getting too old - like mine. :-(
    But it's great that Stefano want to take a look at your logs. Hopefully, he finds something that can help you.

    same issue, before the last version did not happen. Now with lower settings I always have the warning
  13. kunos

    kunos Alien

    that's because the warning was added in this version. Before you had the slow motion but you did not notice, and that's why having the warning is so important.

    yes, I also have this warning since the small update, i5 7600K 1080Ti GPU ...settings on high, also micro stutters now, same graphics settings prior to the update with around 19 AI ....now I have these symptoms
  15. kunos

    kunos Alien

    reduce AI cars and it should go away

    and the fun also goes away :)
    i have it too, but i got used to it and don't look at it :p

    Is this CPU Usage Warning visible in VR? As I don't see it when I get my Stutters.
  18. BrunUK

    Or try reducing opponent visibility.

  19. Will that help? The CPU surely still has to calculate what the AI is doing, even if the GPU isn't rendering them?
  20. kunos

    kunos Alien

    nope, it won't help. The message is all about the physics.. physics is still calculated even if you don't see them :)

    Right now AI ammount is raised to 30 i belive.. First try the update with previous AI ammount witch was 20 and see the performance and then increase untill you notice problem :)
