When the game is able to be run at a consistent 30fps
This is possibly the lamest response I’ve seen on this thread
They just want attention and are trying to bait out an argument. Say ridiculous things and get people to respond, maybe get some heated enough to have post closed. 🙄
Not to ruin the parade but same have 3.6k hours devotion 14lv 12 been here before devotion was a thing
and I gotta say the performance is unacceptable. The game its self it good but a games is only as good as its performance
Its 5yrs old now and has expanded alot the all the maps combined equal up to about the size of some battle royals but it can only hold 5 players. But it freezes every 30s or whenever someone uses some perks
Imagine the ######### apex would get if whenever you aimed in your game froze and left them to deal with it for 3+years
Hey all, I made a post in the optimization section which I thought would be worth sharing here; I hope it helps!
"In the name of science and to help out console players, I have tested DBD as survivor on the PS4 "slim" model with a SDD both internally and externally (USB 3.0 to SATA adapter); I did not experience any freezes with either. I encountered the usual FPS drops when status effects were applied and when survivors got hooked. I have to say the FPS on console is pretty rough, it seems to run at around 30 FPS(?) and it feels worse because I play the game on PC at 60 FPS."
Can you guys stop feeding that troll?
The type of freezing that occurs when i leave the game running for 1 hour+
On these specs:
GPU: GTX 1060 6 GB
RAM: 8 GB (which i'll upgrade to 16 soon-ish)
My PC isn't a beast or anything but should be more than capable of running this game with a stable framerate because i can run other more demanding games just fine. Hopefully the RAM upgrade and the upcoming patch improves it (which i doubt..)
That is pretty bad. Does it happen when some action takes place? For example someone dead harding or killer using a power. For us on consoles that's how it usually goes.
Yes, or when you touch a gen, let go and it starts regressing because of Ruin. That can cause stuttering too. Also when status effects are applied. Luckily dead harding or the killer using their power doesn't cause freezes often. For example i don't have the fps drop issues with Nemesis and his tentacles on PC. I have seen how bad those are on consoles :/
Are you good bro? Sounds like you had a rough day.
Still it doesn't look good and it affects you. Even if it is worse on console your issues are no joke either.
Everything is broken, behavior sucks.
Can't get teleport hits due to lag.
Can't dead hard due to lag.
Such fun times here at DBD.
But don't worry, it's only 2 more weeks of an unplayable game!
(assuming their *fix* doesn't just mess things up more)
Ah yes it takes a company of 700 employees with over 100 million dollars over two and a half years to begin working on the issue. Definitely entitled on our part for wanting the game to work.
you can just stay off this thread if you're tired of seeing it. All I know is we're gonna keep it going until we get the bug fixes we've been asking for.
I'm currently playing red dead redemption 2, and it is running like a dream on an old ps4.
The instant I try dbd, my ps4 is fighting for its damn life.
I'm playing that too, gotta love psnow sometimes.
For for real, DBD makes the PS4 blow it's fan so hard I feel like I need to turn the console off to give it a rest after just a few matches
It isn't entitlement to demand a game to be running at least somewhat without real issues. Sure, bugs happen here and there, that's part of the process of development of a game. But you can't put off people their argument as "entitlement" when you yourself (through your hard work, your own words (like other people don't work hard...)) have a almost 5k machine running this game.
Not everyone has the money to buy such a beast of a machine you have. Others just like playing on console. Not everyone has the abilitiy to buy a new console when they're not even in stock.
The game was running somewhat fine BEFORE the RE chapter dropped. After that it's a complete sh*tshow. It's not entitlement for people to ask the devs, who have no problem taking your money for their chapters/skins/rift pass, to have a working game. It's just not.
Rewatching these clips and the fact you freeze yet killer is still moving is so frustrating. There's legit nothing you could've done to avoid that. Those freezes are complete game changers and it sucks.
I feel like in the games I've played survivors have started to either hide more or lead killers to others more as way to get out of chases quicker to avoid these freezes screwing them over. Not only are they ruining the experience but they're causing survivors to play in a way that makes solo/2swf an extra crappy time.
I 100% agree with this, for console players.
Just a quick question I didn't see it anywhere, has anyone asked what the Net speed is? Like the Over all speed, Up and Down and Ping?
Or maybe I missed the Ping in the videos. I am not trying to find blame but it is a good question to ask if you don't know.
I have said before, if a game is this poorly optimized for a sub group of people and the company refuses to fix it, walk away for a month, companies like this rely on CPB, if they see a drop they will respond with swift action to fix the problems. But folks have to be willing to walk away. It may not be the best advice might not even be the advice people want to acknowledge, but a stop usage of product is the quickest way to get heard and action. Lets face it most of these people playing (not pointing to anyone in particular) could use a good long break might bring down their toxicity level LOL.
Also For console players they may have to considered that Sony and Microsoft's Netcode arent always optimal and can vary from game to game. For a PC player we only deal with our own Net speed and then the Servers from Behavior, so we only have two people to blame there. While a console player can have 1gb net speed but once it gets to sony or Microsoft that speed gets throttled to say 15 or 20 mb, Which in turns is dealing with 3 points instead of two and three people to blame, which has happened. Again not saying this is the case but has anyone taken this into account or asked this question
What I would like to ask moving forward from everyone to please avoid commenting that people should just upgrade - there are several reasons as to why someone might not be able to or simply doesn't want to. Either of those situations are fine. If you however still feel like to leave a comment with tips on how to upgrade, make sure it's understanding and respectful. This is an important matter to the community who play on those platforms and their voices certainly should be heard on it.
Don't platform shame anyone, whether they play on console or pc, it does not matter. This is not something we would like to see here.
It already has been acknowledged by BHVR, the console optimizaton issues that is (especially now after the recent chapter) - in the most recent patch too, that issues ongoing are being investigated. This is from the recent 5.0.2 patch:
The team is still actively working on more fixes across multiple platforms, including consoles. We will be monitoring the changes made within this bugfix patch for stability. (https://forum.deadbydaylight.com/en/kb/articles/288-5-0-2-resident-evil)
Thank you for keeping this post open and just deleting the comments. Very much appreciated.
Also thank you for the comment on upgrading. Feel like it's something we repeat alot in these conversations so it's really nice to see that comment coming from a mod. :)
Is it also on us to still be waiting for that goal they set back in March 2019 for ALL PLATFORMS will run their dang game at 60fps minimum?
My Xbox rarely gets up to 30 on DBD, just this game only mind you, and can slip into the teens on indoor maps.
I appreciate what you said and I hope the mid chapter can help improve the performance on all platforms or at least help find what causing the problems other then the hdd.
Same I've been content with my opinions until the update
That's so frustrating. I've had similar but not that bad where it's double hit like that.
I feel ya dude. I
I have it constantly in my games. There was one game I froze thrice in a few seconds.
The only time it help me was because the killer also froze at the same time I did (still lost the chase tho)
Im sure its a difficult problem to fix, that doesn't change the fact that they knowingly altered the game in a way that would make it unplayable on console. I can only assume they knew what they were doing all along. We all know they had a meeting at some point where they weighed the costs and benefits of new content/updates/etc. vs. optimization on consoles, and they chose the former, ensuring that a massive part of their player base would have the game ruined.
