    Platform - PC
    Map - Springwood: Badham Preschool (Specifically above the boiler room in the school building)
    Side - Survivor
    Killer -The Nurse

    I was in a chase with the killer when the FPS drop occurred. I got downed and my FPS remained choppy until I was hooked outside the preschool building.

    I sometimes experience a drop in FPS on certain areas of certain maps but this time the drop was extremely noticeable and much worse than usual.

    Pre-2.0.0 I experienced framrate drops on The Game (in most areas of the map), occasionally on Backwater Swamp and exclusively in the Preschool building on Badham Preschool. Post-2.0.0 I haven't experienced any framerate drops on any other map than Badham Preschool.

    Platform - PC
    Map(s) - Shelter Woods, Fractured Cowshed, Wretched Shop
    Role - Both
    Killers - Experienced with all Killers
    Actions - Just being on the map

    Ever since 2.0.0 I've been having way worse framerates on these maps. If I look towards the middle in Shelter, I go down to 11 FPS. If I look at the ground or towards an edge, I go back up to around 30.

    Same goes for Cowshed and Shop. I have a really bad laptop but framerates overall have went down even further. Shelter Woods used to be around 20 FPS but it goes down to 9-13 a LOT more than before. It's borderline unplayable. More maps have been affected but these are the main culprits.

    Does anyone know if submitting all this information is actually helping anything? I'm tired of missing hits on survivors and struggling to keep up in these unnecessarily long chases that are costing me games. When survivors attemp to 360 or zig zag they basically teleport. It's infuriating. Especially when they tbag the exits and you know if it wasn't for playing at 5 fps you'd have killed them. Like i said before Xbox one, all maps, especially when attacking, but happens when just walking around too. I love this game but it's hard to keep playing with these issues.

    im still mad that the pallet glitches aren't fixed yet on the xbox one. i been playing since october last year 2017 and experiencing heavy pallet glitches such as forcing me through the pallet to the other side after dropping it and glitching through it when the killer grabs me. You guys been fixing other stuff but never seemed to fix the pallet glitches. I used to play everynight including during the day sometimes but now im starting to give up on playing due to all the changes thats been made and still having to deal with the same glitches over and over again. Another big issue is finding a killer online with my friends in public lobbies THAT NEEDS TO BE FIXED!

    I've had the opposite experience it used to stutter down to low frame rates since I got it on xbox one x but since that last patch it has been waaaaay smoother for both killer and survivor, the only time it stutters for me now is when I enter bloodlust it drops sometimes to 0fps and just freezes then picks back up again a few seconds later but other than that whatever the console team did in the last patch.... Thank you! So much better now but please work on an xbox one X and ps4 Pro enhanced version that would be mega 👍😁 cheers

    i got hit by the killer

    PS4 original
    The Game, Coldwind Farm (I think, the cornfield), others too but I don't remember specifics. 
    As others have said, fog, fire, and effects like Doctor electricity and Clown smoke seem to make things worse.
    All Doctor effects in Treatment such as floor and edge of screen electric.
    As Survivor the Doctor effects caused drops making Snap Out Of It extremely hard to hit the skill check, the edge of screen electric and Doctor 'face' that appears when missing the skill check.

    I would love an option to turn as many things off as possible so my old ps4 can maximise fps. 
    I have even tried using default skins in the hope of finding smoother FPS without things like glowing eyes cosmetics or electric on Doctors weapon.

    I made a report earlier in the thread just after the patch was released on PS4 - it was the first game I had played and it was painful to play as killer.

    Weird thing is that was the only game I had any problems - its been fine since. Well fine as in the same as it was before.....could still do with a few more FPS.

    Now is 2.1.0 and I got low FPS on Badham Preschool during chase. I played as the Doctor.
    I play on PC.

    Games near unplayable now as killers. I'm a Leatherface main atm and couldn't hit water in the ocean if I wanted to let alone a survivor. Just swinging the hammer wrecks the fps. In the rare event I do get a hit the fps dips so bad they'll get away anyway and the scratch marks are gone. Seems the worse maps are the cornfield ones.
    Even the match results screen is a big stuttering mess.

    Animation delay while dropping a pallet in the injured state after I dropped the pallet he teleported to the other side of the pallet then teleported back to the other side


    Badham Preschool (In the school and especially in the boiler room exclusively)
    Wraith (but from what I've seen the killer I'm playing as doesn't effect anything)
    I was simply chasing survivors and FPS became unbearable. Not using my power, no pallets being dropped, just regular movement.

    • Ps4
    • Preschool
    • Survivor
    • Trapper
    • Vaulting a window in killer shack / crouching behind rocks.
    • As I was vaulting during a chace, I got stuck in the window and all of a sudden I was stuck in a trap elsewhere. Was hiding behind a roch i the middle of the map as he downed someone else, all of a sudden I was downed, but he was hooking the other survivor on my screen.

    • Chapel, the new one.
    • Killer
    • Trapper
    • Chase, hooking
    • I chased a claudette but she got away. Moments later I found her running towards the chapel and before she could vault into it, I downed her but she disappeared. Found out after match she had been working on a gen with others and all of a sudden she was down. Later in the match I tried to hook her a final time but every time I tried we were sliding away. Tried 6-7 times, different hooks. Had to step in my own trap to drop her, and then she dc, but on her screen it showed that I was the one to dc, but I was finishing the match by taking out the last survivor. This match is on video from her side.

    How about some feedback from the devs?
  • fcc2014fcc2014 Member Posts: 4,388
    When can we expect any update to fix the framerate on console. It got much worse in 2.0. @not_Queen can you please address this in the next stream with an actual timetable. Chapter 9, mid chapter, chapter 10. Something to let us know this is being addressed. The game plays like garbage. I gave 3 or 4 examples in this post and haven't played in weeks because of headaches and becoming nauseous. This is new and only playing this game.

    @Harket said:
    Fractured Cowshed / Shelter Woods
    Killer and Survivor (respectively)
    Huntress and Clown (respectively)
    Picking up a survivor near the killer shack / Just crouching and hiding
    It's dropping from 50-60 FPS to 10-15.

    Here I am again. Informations above was about 2.0.0.

    It's 2.1.0 now and my problems are in Autoheaven and Coldwild Farms. (all of both maps)
    When a survivor hits decisive, I get frozen for 1 ou 2 seconds.
    When survivor is being consumed/ by the entity (dead), the sound of it gives me FPS drops aswell.

    Is the sound of some actions of the game an issue, maybe? I see people posting about FPS drops when a chase starts, when hooking someone etc.

    PS4. Playing as all killers. It happens on all maps, usually when I hit someone while carrying and also if they attempt to 180 or 360 dodge my hit. Frames drop and they are able to run a few steps ahead of me if I miss the hit. But frames drop even if I hit them when they attempt that juke

    • PC
    • EVERY map
    • Killer
    • EVERY killer
    • Whenever I was chasing a survivor and did a lounge attack, that would´ve hit them, my framerate drops so excessivly that I always miss

    PC specs:
    Intel Core i7-7700k @ 4.2GHz
    NVidia GeForce GTX 1070 (latest driver 398.82)
    32 GB RAM
    Win 10 Home 64bit

    Edit: I even get severe framedrops when placing a trap on the floor with the Trapper. Framerate jumps from 60 down to 24 or something after the screen froze for 1/2 to 1 second. Unplayable.
    Happens too, when winding up a hatchet with the huntress. This list could go on and on and on.

    Edit 2: I lowered the overall quality from "ultra" to "high" now and that kinda fixed most of the frame drops mentioned above. Still I get those frame drops when bloodlust kicks in (even on high). It´s kind of embarrassing, that my machine can´t handle DBD on ultra... what does that say about the game? I wonder...

    PS4. Various maps.Playing with survivor frame drop/lag moves back and forth, left to right(especially inside building hallways and in the first 30-60 seconds of the match on any map). Dropping pallets- survivors steps back/killer ends up being on the other end =free hit. Hillbily frame drop during chainsaw sprint. Doctor in treatment mode. Various killers frame drop during the chase.

    System: PC

    Map(s):Springwood Preschool | & | Haddonfield

    Side: Killer

    Character:The Clown

    Doing: Chasing survivors, turning too quickly, vaulting - just about anything.

    Issue: Significant fps drops. Going from a constant 75 to a sudden drop and then back up. Was fine pre-patch.
