Request for newest update to eliminate stutter during racing

    hey guys,

    I have raised a ticket with 505 but want to air my thoughts here too.

    Currently the Xbox build has serious issues with stutter. During any play: online and offline the game will go into a massive stutter where it appears the screen is updating only once for every 3 frames. This will occur after random periods and will also last for random durations, sometimes 10 seconds and others whole laps.

    To resolve it sometimes you can press the guide button and then return back to assetto and the frame rate is perfect again.

    Right now I have many other niggles with the console release and all those niggles I can live with, however the stutter is crippling to the gameplay and removes any incentive to play as you never know when the game will slap you in the face with terrible stutter resulting all your previous driving and places being nullified.

    I am begging for somebody to fix this.

    Btw before anybody asks: I have done all the possible troubleshooting for this. Including the steps recommended by 505.

    I am a calm man, this game in its current form has actually had me close to shouting. I just can't believe it's so inferior to the PC version but more than that I can't believe it's unplayable at times.
    This makes me sad

    I've decided I'll add a post for every instance I encounter:

    Spa online- 10 minutes left in qualifying.

    Unable to do a qualifying lap as judder occurred every time I tried to complete my outlap and hot lap.

    Occurred mostly when people joined (why should we have to hate people coming to lay) but also occurred without people joining

    I haven't had any issues with stuttering in AC, but have had it in other games before and I called Microsoft who gave me a list of things to do to fix it. Not sure if you tried these, but here are the steps that fixed my problem.

    1. Clear the cache. This is under the blu-ray section in options.
    • Go to Settings > Disc & Blu-Ray
    • In the BLU-RAY section select "Persistent Storage
    • Select "Clear persistent storage"
    2. Remove the alternate MAC Address
    • Go to Settings > Network Settings
    • Select "Delete Alternate MAC address"
    3. Reboot

    A few other things that help me:

    1. Put all of my games on an external USB3.0 drive (not sure if this really helps, but it seems like it does)

    2. Disable instant on and automatic updates.

    3. Every time that I finish a game and return to the dashboard I hit the start button which brings up a menu and I exit the game from there.

    OK, I seem to have fixed this with a COMBINATION of things. There does not seem to be one magic switch that solves it but in my case this seems to have worked for now:

    1) Install the game on an external USB3 hard drive (old Project Cars trick - works a treat)
    2) Clear caches by hard resetting the XBox one. Do this by keeping your finger on the CONSOLE X button/light for 15 seconds until the machine audibly shuts down. UNPLUG the power lead from the console until the light on the brick PSU goes off. Reboot the Xbox. Do this EVERY TIME after updating AC or downloading some new dlc.
    3) Ensure the Xbox is in Power Saving mode, not Instant On mode (or whatever they call it).
    4) Disable game DVR recording. Without a decent camera / photo mode it's wasted on AC anyway.
    5) Ensure nothing is downloading / updating in the background. Microsoft's servers are horrendously slow at the moment. I'm getting 39Mbs download everywhere else, but only around 4Mbs maximum on the MS downloads server. It can't be helping.
    6) Assign the Xbox a static IP and ensure the NAT is open.

    We have put our Xbox in Dmz mode as well as static ip. Seems to make pCars run more smoothly. Less disconnects, and conections to one another on multiplayer is better.

    6- online race Tatuus

    During race and at end of qualifying. Massive stutter.

    Please note: I have done all of the above except for install on external USB drive. This step should not be necessary to ensure smooth running.

    7- Exos online race.

    Rammed up the back. After this massive judder. I kept control of getting bashed but the subsequent stutter lasted for 20 seconds by which time two cars stacked behind me due to my erratic driving down to not being able to tell where I was going.

    Rage quit

    Quick survey... who has a Kinect? I have one and I'm wondering whether that is pulling resources sometimes. Bear in mind that the Kinect is within specification so it should be working with it but just curious.

    No Kinect.

    Quick survey... srry m8:)
    Is this, you are experiencing, only due to console, or did you encounter the same problems with your PC version?
  20. myimac

    Only on console. PC is great!

    Well, I'm not shure if this console thing ever should have happened...
    But, that it is out now, Kunos should do everything they can to make this sim work on console.
    Whatever that implements...
