The Continued Ignorance of Performance Issues Continues to Hamper Player Fun

    my 99% FPS (which is a measure that includes FPS dips which can make the game feel laggy) is always consistenly quite low,often dipping to 40 FPS and below on my 3080 + Ryzen 5900x rig. It's inexcusable

    Wanted to try ph but as I'm leveling ghostface for I'm all ears, I noticed game freezes whenever it procs.

    Rip :(.

  • bm33bm33 Member Posts: 6,884

    I forgot, does I'm All Ears give a noise notification along with the aura reading? I feel like anything that causes a noise notification/bubble on killer side causes a freeze. Kind of like how on survivor the notification bubbles cause a freeze.

  • ShapedShaped Member Posts: 5,552

    I don't think so. It was fine in the last match btw. Maybe something else triggered it and I thought it was iae.

    Fingers crossed. I really wanted to try and practice ph. Never played him before.

    So cool to see this thread still going, I have given up hope to be honest and have been enjoying Elden Ring and Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands on my base PS4 with no issues despite them looking way better, being much much bigger in scale, and having way more systems/mechanics in place during regular gameplay.

    This was the last time I took a clip of an issue (23/03/22) as just seems like pointless shouting into the void and screaming into a pillow is more effective than trying to get these issues fixed.

    Every time I do try a match out it’s either no different or worse and I give up.

    Was really hyped about Sadako as well but glad I tested it before I spent any money this time, at least I don’t feel like a mug like when I bought Pinhead despite knowing the issues Nemesis DLC brought to the game when I spent money on those.

    Sitting on 50k shards as well lol but what’s the point in spending them on something that doesn’t work or value me as a player :(

  • ShapedShaped Member Posts: 5,552

    Rough but happens to me sometimes as well. :(

    Still love this game so I play it tho.

  • _AdamFrancis__AdamFrancis_ Member Posts: 698

    Been playing dbd mobile NetEase. It's optimized and the graphics are good, if you wanna play it I'll show you how add Shift#3955

  • PulsarPulsar Member Posts: 14,055

    Yeah, that's basically how it was 6 months ago.

    Disappointed to see there haven't been any changes.

  • PulsarPulsar Member Posts: 14,055

    Newest patch on Series X has given me some choppiness and small frame drops.

  • FilthyLegionMainFilthyLegionMain Member Posts: 934

    Same on my end and I have a bloody 3060 on my pc along with other delightful specs. Just a couple games ago, it screwed me from getting a swing in that extended the chase by 20 seconds.

  • ShapedShaped Member Posts: 5,552

    I didn't notice anything out of the ordinary on ps4 but unhook freezes are still garbage when you lose chase because of them.

    Completely unfair honestly.

  • PulsarPulsar Member Posts: 14,055

    I noticed it on RPD and on Haddonfield near the police cars.

    Frames dipped noticeably around those cars. Not more than 10 though

  • GorgoniaGorgonia Member Posts: 1,585

    I'm on PC, good specs, yet the FPS drops at random moments don't stop... ever since Sadako they got way worse

  • ShapedShaped Member Posts: 5,552

    Yeah had a freeze near the cars last game and got down because of it.

    It was a complete freeze tho like 0 frames for a second or two. Like usual.

  • PulsarPulsar Member Posts: 14,055

    Not quite what I'm experiencing thankfully.

    Unfortunately it is rather concerning that it happens on Series X at all.

    It's been on my stream a couple times tonight.

  • GoodBoyKaruGoodBoyKaru Member Posts: 20,538

    Newest patch gives freezes whenever a killer uses their power for the first time, but bigger freezes when the killer is more recently (Artist/Nemesis/Pyramid gave more freezes than Wraith/Trapper/Nurse)

  • PulsarPulsar Member Posts: 14,055

    I see we're kicking off RE Death Patch 2.0 a couple months before Anniversary.

    It's like a hype campaign.

    Supposedly, the game doesn't load in things procedurally like we thought last year. I wonder why newer Killers freeze more than older one's. Sheer complexity perhaps?

  • GoodBoyKaruGoodBoyKaru Member Posts: 20,538

    I'm guessing because the powers just have more things. Wraith has far less to his kit than Nemesis or Pyramid

  • PulsarPulsar Member Posts: 14,055

    That's what I was thinking too.

    I wonder how Sadako and Blight fair. One simple but new, the other a little older but complex.

  • ShapedShaped Member Posts: 5,552

    I don't notice any problems with ph personally on ps4. Playing him or going against him.

  • ShapedShaped Member Posts: 5,552

    Is it me or hooking/unhooking causes worse freezes than before?

    Also other things like curing infection against nemesis etc.

    I hope we don't get to the point where I don't feel like playing at all again because it hinders me too much.

  • NekoGamerXNekoGamerX Member Posts: 4,711

    something does need to be done soon not soon another year.

  • KaitsjaKaitsja Member Posts: 1,097

    PS4 Pro - Frame Drops from unhooks/gen completion have returned. Toolboxes can't be used on gens on certain maps. So far, Haddonfield and Dead Dawg Saloon.

  • MekochiMekochi Member Posts: 925

    Bout to introduce my friend to the world of dead by daylight so far, from just playing solo queue he already hates the game, but he said he'll give it another shot playing SWF

    I'll be back later to give an update on how smooth his game is running as well as my own, and how smooth the game is running for the other people in our party

    Wish me luck

  • venom12784venom12784 Member Posts: 666

    I was once able to play this in ultra and would have to bump down to high or medium while I streamed as of the last 2 updates it’s barely playable in medium

  • FurgoeFurgoe Member Posts: 18

    Unfortunately I just bought 2 of my friends keys and tried to get them into it. I was almost a little embarrassed for what I had them walk into. I'm hoping this is just a fluke on their part or bad timing on mine. The forums is making me think it's more or less business as usual.

  • ShapedShaped Member Posts: 5,552

    Well I'm all ears is indeed causing freezes for me in the end so I can't get value out of it. Feelsbadman.

  • bm33bm33 Member Posts: 6,884

    Figured I'd give the patch a few days before giving feedback. I've had no improvements in performance. Same issues as before causing freezes when playing survivor - hooks/unhooks (scourge hooks cause bigger freeze than normal hook), notification bubbles, killers using their powers, status effects, etc. Pinhead using his chains is pretty terrible freeze, luckily I have only faced one. Everytime Ghostface marks me or Legion uses Frenzy I'm getting freezes so disappointed with reworks those issues weren't fixed.

    I posted a bug report because I'm guessing it's a bug instead of performance issues but there's a delay with Blastmine. It now makes a like dull exploding sound when you're across the map. Between that sound and the notification bubble there's a few second delay, and then an few second delay before the yellow aura goes away. If you're nearby you hear the killer grunt before the exploding notification bubble and then there's the kicking animation. When up close you used to get blinded as well but now it's a notification bubble. Hoping this is a bug and not that they changed Blastmine to now cause weird delay.

    In the new Haddonfield, my PS4 Pro fan turns into a plane in certains parts of the map, specially in the center with the cars and the lights and, above all, repairing the generator of the house of pain. Am I the only one?
