So I've got this weird problem that just randomly started. I'll load into SA and I'll get no more than 10 fps. I don't even hit 30 in a basic interior. This problem has never happened before and I have a GeForce GT 650M. It just randomly started occurring and I cant figure out how to resolve it.
When I noticed it, I was testing a new set of mods. I logged in, this happened and I assumed it was because I had another game running (doesn't take a lot of resources and was at the menu screen). I closed that, tried again. Same problem. I figured it must've been the mods so I uninstalled them completely (I assure you, none of those mods are still in my game, I even went back to a directory that is 2 months old and still had this issue). I tried again and same issue.
The only other thing I did that night relating to GTA was I accidently set the default assosciation for .txd files to open in txd workshop. I didn't think that'd matter but I undid the assosciation anyway. Didn't do anything. I restarted my laptop and everything ran smooth. I went to bed.
Next morning I log on and the framerate issue is back. I restart my laptop, and it's resolved. I don't play the rest of the day. Go to bed.
Wake up today, it's back. It seems the temp fix is a restart but I need a real fix. Any ideas what's causing my sudden drop in FPS? I've checked, it's using my gfx card.
I've noticed that it is in both SA:MP and SinglePlayer. And this is the only game this happens with. Performance across the board among everything is perfectly normal.
