Ok I'll try again: you play only (or mainly) survivor.
If I'm wrong again there are two possibilities:
1- you are masochistic, if you are ok with how things are
2- you are lying
EDIT: just to be a little less tranchant. You are not the only person with a bit of knowledge in Game Dev, you know, but even if you were you would be missing the point that this is not just a problem of game tech development, but also (and probably mostly) a problem of communication management.
BHVR announced that consoles would get 60 fps, and they announced it more than 1 year ago. Now, I didn't believe it for one second, exactly because we know how development goes, and the only way to more than double the current performance was to basically rebuild the game from scratch. There are obviously too many dependancies in their code for it to be that optimised without this work.
However, when you, as a Dev, announce stuff like that, at the very least you cannot make performance WORSE (actually: much worse) as time goes by.
If you don't see the problem, and you don't see how this needs to be fixed, no matter what, you are a bad developer (and this time I'm talking about you, since you are excusing the current situation. At least BHVR is silent, they are not saying "it's fine as it is. Here, new content instead") firstly, and a very bad consumer secondly.
Yeah, Doctor games on PS4 are problematic.
Bump in 5 frames per second.
Just joking.. My smartphone has better performance than dbd on ps4
just played another game on lery against pc survivors... false saw, 10 frames, had to lower down my sens, but it doesn't matter i had to quit.. can we disable indoor map? at least even if the frames are bad killer is playable on other maps..
Speaking about survivor...ive been playing survivor alot more lately just cause I dont wanna deal with killer fps...lemme tell you..people werent lying when they said sloppy gives you fps drops holy crap..I ran into a killer that had sloppy today and the stuttering was real.
If anyone is on ps4 playing survivor on dbd. Pray that you dont run into sloppy butcher lol
Players: It's over, DBD. I have the high ground.
DBD: You underestimate my priorities.
Don't buy it.
*DBD starts to get a console rebellion about frames*
You were the chosen one! It was said that you would destroy the bugs, not join them! Bring balance to the consoles, not leave it in low framerates!
I'll ban you!
You were my favorite game, DBD. I loved you.
Or have another survivor open a chest and watch as you either miss a skill check or miss mashing the struggle button because of a worldwide FPS drop.
I've had it from survivor cleansing a totem, dull if nearby or lit from anywhere on map. When Doctor uses blast across the map. When a gen gets completed, especially annoying if you're on hook with adrenaline with plenty of struggle time left. When people bring up skill checks instead of button mashing on hook I just think I'm still going to die from the same crap that causes the mash to mess up. 😂
When the switch players ask for optimization.
Very creative, nice work.
Asking anyone, have the devs posted any official replies besides that generic one in the earlier pages? Afaik there's no way to just read official replies and I can't bother sorting every response to locate. Just wondering if they announced any news yet. Thanks.
No official update as of yet, it's like they are giving us a big middle finger.
Oh thanks. Hopefully with Gamescom, they announce some next-gen news and add some current-gen info too.
What like hey guys buy the brand new thing that will probably cost over £600 then rebuy the game if you want that nice frame rate.
I know there is a pandemic going on and your screwed money wise and we know you'll pull through.
(BTW we won't actually promise that your frame rates will be at 60fps and probably will say we will work on it)
Buy new things! 🐷
I'll just have to get the ps5 day of release then, after I send my pet unicorn out to rob a bank (:
Another day dawns and another day without the devs bothering to reply to us
Imagine if the devs diverted their time from making new cosmetics to optimization instead, maybe we wouldn't be in this situation.
Hey everyone, just a reminder that has been 14 days since the only reply we got.
I find that comment from Pat condescending, it's obvious the devs already know about the framerate issues and have seen threads like this one countless times.
Then let's make sure that this one doesn't get forgotten
How can they forget that this thread has amassed 755 comments including mine so far, surely this is the most commented discussion of all time on the forums?
I gotta say, I'm willing to wait patiently until the next patch comes to console.
After that, I'll thoroughly test the frame rate, and if it didn't improve (god forbid, it worsens), I won't sit here that patiently.
The devs wont forget this thread, it'll lurk on the front page for as long as console framerate is an issue. If it's an issue for the rest of the games life then it looks like this thread isn't going anywhere. If this one gets closed then another about a similar topic will probably be made.
Me and as I can tell a lot of other people are very passionate about console optimisation, so the thread will keep on going.
Playing the game these days gives me a headache, and that has made me decide to stop playing until there is a minimum of performance when playing it and my head does not explode.
ThanksBHVR, you have gotten me to stop playing it for my sake. I haven't touched it for a week and I don't plan on doing it for my health.
So we get 250,000 BP for the sync errors, which is all fine and dandy.
How about console players get free BP for putting up with terrible framerate?
Maybe they don't care about us. They promised to solve the problems of the console version 2 years ago. Do they take us for fools maybe? At this point I don't even want 60 Fps, give me 30 stable and granite so that I don't feel bad.
Yesterday on Lerys the game seemed to be slowing down, I was getting a headache trying to navigate the map or hit the survivors.
It is disheartening that BHV, known for producing games like Bugs Bunny Lost in Time in the past that made a good impression at the time, is unable to run DBD on ps4 following minimum standards.
I am a patient person ... but if they are trying to solve the Frame problems on ps5 instead of ps4 after their promises, I'm sorry but I don't spend any money on it again to get better performance
It was better last night for me, except when Doctor was involved.
That’s like saying “imagine if my car salesman would divert their time to redoing my plumbing in my house”. Two different things. You could maybe argue diverting funds from cosmetic design to hiring people to work on optimization
pretty sure all console players would be able to P3 all survivors and killers, and max out all perks on everyone if we were compensated via BP (that’d be the bare minimum level of compensation imo)
Guys, here's another white knight coming to the rescue of the devs!
I think that's what he meant, no need to nitpick if everything isn't said perfectly.
