Update 2.4.0 - Unreal update performance / lighting feedback



  • Issue: FPS Loss
    Platform: PC
    Maps: Coldwind farm (only one I played after the update so I presume there is no difference on the other maps)
    Quality selected: Ultra
    CPU: i7-7700HQ
    GPU: GTX 1060 6GB max Q
    RAM: 8GB
    OS: Windows 10

    Overall performance got far worse, I usually ran this game in 60+ fps with small drops, now it's 40-50 fps average.

    Issue: color changes
    Platform: PS4 Pro
    Monitor: 4K UHD TV by Samsung - UE40MU6170
    Map played: Springwood - Badham Preschool Badhouse

    The chest in the Badhouse (Basement) appeared very dark.
    It seems the chest was not affected by any light placed in the environment.

    Nea Karlson cosmetic - Cloudy Skies Pixie Bob

    Before the update the top hair was a shade of gray and the side hair black.

    After the update the top hair seems to be black with some gray "frosted tips".


    Subjective impression:
    The new version would look interesting as an additional hairstyle variant ("Frosty Tips Pixie Bob" ? ).
    But it may not be what customers originally payed for.

    Issue: Fps Loss

    Platform: PC

    Map Played: All

    Fps drops since the update of 2.4.0, and with addition of Winter Event, frames now drop in the main menu as well as making it harder to skip opening cinematic.

    Specs: AMD Radeon 5000
    Ram: 8GB (I usually play on low).

    Issue: FPS drop
    Platform: PS4
    Map Played: Rotten Fields (Coldwind Farm) and the main menu
    Details: My FPS drops whenever I get a skill check while repairing a gen at the beginning of a match. It drops enough to where I miss it when I would normally hit it. On the main menu, the falling snow causes a noticeable FPS drop.

    Issue: Nea Head Cosmetics Post-Update
    Platform: PS4
    Maps: Any

    Details/Problem: After the recent update that added new lighting, killer, and survivor, I noticed that Nea’s 3 Pixie hairstyle cosmetics now look very weird. They look smushed and don’t even match the photo in the store. I own the Cloudy Skies Bob in which it’s most noticeable. I’m hoping this gets fixed so I can use them again.

    A small update to my earlier post (page 1).

    I now had to turn down my specs to Low. Low with a GTX 1080. If had to or otherwise I can't play Killer properly with all the fps drops I get. I do hope that doesn't stay and you'll be able to fix it. Optimisation Patch for December? I do hope that wasn't it.

    I generally really appreciate the new lighting, except for Lampkin Lane and Badham (too dark).

    Issue: directional sound, loss of some sound, color changes
    Platform: ps4
    Map played: all
    Additional Details: some sounds lack direction and play from everywhere. from what i've noticed, when pig's jigsaw boxes laugh the sound plays like it's in the distance but lacks a sense of direction, so it's impossible to pinpoint which box it is. also, when phasewalking as spirit, you can no longer hear footsteps of any kind. another thing is the brightness and darkness; maps with lower levels are waaaayyy too dark. it's hard to see.

    Issue: Too dark in dark areas
    Platform: PS4
    Map played: Groaning Storehouses, Ironworks of Misery, Lery's Memorial
    Additional Details: Pretty much on all maps, you barely can see in dark corners sometimes. For Lery's, that's some of the rooms. Claudettes are basically invisible in the dark. (I played with the same settings before the update and had no issues, so it seems this is something that came with the new graphics).

    Issue: Lower floor way too dark
    Platform: PS4
    Map played: Gideon Meat Plant
    Additional Details: Same as in the post above. Following people in the lower floor is frustrating to no end because you can't see anything to save your life.

    Issue: FPS loss
    Platform: PC
    Map played: Grim Pantry, Haddonfield, Coldwind Farm (and one more which I don't remember)
    Additional details: Before Christmas update, I didn't lose almost any fps (loss of 1-2 FPS). Now the perfomance is terrible, especially on killer (loss of 5-10 FPS, sometimes an FPS drop when getting downed or hit with Sloppy Butcher). It's not fun to play like that.

    Issue - Sound, especially directional sound, is busted
    Platform - PC
    Map played - All maps
    Additional details - Since the update, sound has been really messed up. Directional sound especially seems really bugged. I can't tell which direction sound is coming from anymore, which is very detrimental for killers like Spirit who rely heavily on sound when she is phasing and can't see. Now she cannot hear footsteps AT ALL and if the survivor she's chasing is injured and moaning the sound has no direction so you have no idea where it's coming from. Usually it sounds like it's underneath you.

    Issue - FPS drops
    Platform - PC
    Map - All maps
    Additional details - Sometimes when I go to hit a survivor it just freezes for a few seconds and sometimes I'll be lucky and have hit them and other times my killer freezes and they get away. It's really annoying to drop frames so hard at such an important point. It happens at least one a game, if not multiple times, usually one of the first hits of the match.

    Issue: Low FPS (all maps and even in campfire loadout area)
    Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700HQ CPU @ 2.60GHz 2.59GHz
    RAM: 16GB
    Graphics Card: GeForce GTX 1060
    Operating System: Windows 10
    Quality Selected: Low
    FPS (in Current Quality Selected): 55 - 60
    FPS (in Previous Quality Selected - Ultra): 20

    Additional Information:
    I used to play on 60 - 70 fps on ultra, on every map. I stopped playing for a few months and I came back to it about a week ago. I noticed my FPS were abysmal so I dropped Quality to Low, still barely managed to get 60 fps. When I go game, during chases or what not I drop FPS to 50 or even lower. I reinstalled the game, checked integrity of game files and nothing works.

    I used to be able to play at 60 fps on any quality and all maps worked fine up until like 2 days ago , i updated by graphics card and I dont know whats going on , it barely plays at 10-15 fps which is completely unplayable.
    Any other information needed ?
    Edit : the problem didnt happen because of the graphics card , what i meant to say is that im sure that my drivers are updated .

    Issue: laggy skillchecks and invisible pallets
    Platform: PC

    Issue: Graphic downgrade
    Platform: Xbox One X
    Display: 1080p and 4K

    When you first updated the engine, the graphics were improved on Xbox One X from before however there was noticeable shadow boxes on characters and in darker areas and LOD rendering issues. When you added the Holiday Event, those shadow boxes were gone and the overall image quality was crisper and the LOD was greatly improved.

    Now that you reverted back to the normal look, the shadow boxes are back and the overall image quality is back to before the event and the LOD issues have returned and are quite noticeable again.

    I already have bad FPS in game, like 30fps, but now on most of the maps it drops a lot, maybe some optimization please, it will be nice, ty.

    More than likely due to you not really even meeting the minimum requirements for 60fps on low, try moving over to windows ten or taking the initiative to spend around 20-40$ on some RAM, it's easy to install you can find multiple websites on it.

    Issue: Bright lights alike the old flashlight blind and random colours
    Platform: Xbox one
    Map played: all and kyf lobby
    Additional details

    I have been witnessing issues withthe lighting (especially exit gates) having a bright light blocking my view, and any survivor going through it I lose the chase due to this issue, the random colours will appear while on sides of hills and exit gates are usually purple/pinkish colour, map barriers are also appearing white-ish

    If we are allowing use to show proof I have pictures of this issue happening several times

    Issue: FPS Loss
    Platform: PC
    Map played: All
    Additional detalis: Sometimes i have small lags while in game as surv/killer (generally in chase), but I have also 1-2 really massiv lags per game. After one of those lags, everything looks like somehow graphics were set to low. Very clearly visible pixels etc. Even if my graphics quality is set to high. After few seconds it's comming back to normal again.

    Quality selected: Ultra (but now I'm playing on High. I still have lags as mentioned earlier, but game is playable. If I change to Ultra, there're too many lags so game is unplayable)
