Where's the Optimization Patch?

edited December 2018 in General Discussions

Is there going to be a separate patch coming out before the end of December as the "Optimization Patch"? I've been waiting a long time for it, since I play on console. Playing killer is nice and all, but playing killer with over 30 fps? That's NICE! Just wondering.

EDIT2:
The Answer, so far? It's not coming. We'll be seeing it in chunks, I assume.

    Ask them on today's dev stream, I know I will be doing so too.
    Hopefully we get some info and/or confirmation it's still comming in December as there's only a couple of weeks left.

    I believe some optimalization updates/hotfixes will be implemented with the event patch. Though it's justmy speculations

    Hey if you play Xbox, look out for me once the patch is out since there's a 70% chance I'll return to xbox. Also I'll be called SecretSp___x7 so look out for me

    There's already an optimization patch it's called: Get a pc

    Been playing since 2 months after console release. Once the optimization patch has come, I'd love to SWF if ur down for it or play some KYF.

    Sure, 100%! I'm up for anything. Can't play killer anyways, rank one matchmaking takes like 15 minutes just to find 4 survivors.

    Highest I got as killer was rank 8 and highest I got as survivor was rank 2 I think then I went to PC. Once the patch is out tag me in this and remind me to add you. I live in the UK so if our times match up since I got uni and I'm sort of busy, then we'll do SWF^^

    Just left the dev stream where they said that optimisation is a PASS (not a patch) and that it's... (wait for it) an "ongoing process" so I wouldn't hold your breath for a patch to fix the frame rate in the next 2 weeks of December.
    I don't want to complain too much because the unreal engine upgrade made the game run better for me (especially as killer) on Xbox One "X" for sure so I'll keep the faith... for now.
    We may see more improvements to performance in December or we may not, it's an "ongoing process" (the first of which was the unreal engine upgrade) so who knows when :)

    Well, sort of. Before the upgrade, fps was kind of all over the place. Now that they updated the engine, the fps is more consistent, buuuuut....it is definitely worse.

    The problem is all the moving objects ie. grass, sparks, leaves, etc. It's bogging down the engine, especially since the entire map is consantly loaded for every player, it puts a lot of strain on GPU I think.

    What we need are graphic settings

  • PizzamanPizzaman Member Posts: 320

    Along all the things they said, they also mentioned that the December Patch would be the foundation for an FPS optimization. I guess the Unreal engine version update was what they were referring to. That's done now and christmas & end of the year are getting closer (holiday season), so don't expect any major advances in the upcoming days or weeks.

    Dumb answer and dumb reason.
    Why a console player will get a PC just to play a bad optimized game ? Cuz yeah every other game runs fine.

    EDIT: I do remember watching that one stream a couple weeks ago where they said it was coming in December, and I am SUPER ULTRA crossing my fingers that it gets here because the new engine made consoles even worse! (mostly on killer)

    Forget it, they "pass" as they said on twitch.
    "Pass not a Patch" said Mcote which means they passed on it cuz there is no term pass in development/gaming.

    Please stop posting ignorant things like this, not everyone is fortunate enough to pay $1000+ for a PC.

    I really hope some big patch comes.

    For the last 6 months the game has been broken on console, getting worse each patch. And every time someone brought it up they said “there’s gonna be a big optimization patch in December, be patient.”

    Now we're being told that it’s not a “patch”, while given some vague information on the road ahead.

    Yeah. Console's so bad there's a 15 minute wait time for killers at rank one, and console fps is between 15-30

    According to this, it was due in December.

    According to yesterdays Dev stream though?
    We aren't getting one. It'll be a "pass" instead of "patch" and it started with the engine update (even though that made it worse for a bunch of people lol).

    Feeling like the redheaded stepchild over here in console land

    Yeah, idk why this keeps happening but the devs keep saying things in the stream, then taking it back THREE MONTHS LATER. It feels like deja vu every time something like this happens.

    Not sure. Can't find anything on what a "pass" means in videogame development terms. I think it's some codeword BHVR has.

    Hmm, seems to be literally just a simple pass as the word says it... Hopefully the delay of the optimisation patch isn't going to be very long (like months).
    It's not only needed for consoles, a lot of pc players are waiting for it urgently

    Pass (păs)
    v. passed, pass·ing, pass·es
    v.tr.
    To cause (the bowels) to evacuate.

    Best definition I could find for what's happening to console players :lol:

    But really, just seems like a cop out because they didn't actually have a team working on console optimization like promised, or they did but they didn't get enough accomplished in time for the promised big December patch.

    Was this patch “the optimization patch” for console?

    If not is it still coming in December?

    The optimisation pass is an ongoing process. The first step is the Unreal Engine Update - which was the main "patch" , from now, optimization will be an ongoing process.

    This was the information given in the Dev Stream this week.
