GTA: EFLC - stutters then crashes.


Mobius01

Recommended Posts

Evening,

 

About 5 minutes into playing through either of the EFLC games, the frame rate drops to about 40-45, the GPU usage rises to 99% and then seconds later the game crashes to desktop.

 

Anyone else have this trouble or have a solution

 

 

EDIT: I tried the -nomemrestict commandline and it seems to have stopped the crashes but the framerate still drops to 40 after 5-10mins.

 

Does this game have a memory leak?

What's the initial fps that you get?

What are your system specifications?

Are you sure your GPU isn't over-heating?

Also, try -memrestrict instead of -nomemrestrict as suggested in the pinned topic.

1. Vsync is on in the nVidia Contol Panel so the frame rate was locked at 60. I think it was about 75-80 before using vsync.

Followed everything but still getting the problem.

 

Runs silky smooth @ 75-80fps, 70-80% GPU usage for 5 mins and then the frame rate drops to 40 and GPU usage rises to 99%.

Try

 

-memrestrict 1610612736

 

If you have the 3GB Phantom edition, try this commandline:

 

-memrestrict 3145728000

 

Also, get MSI Afterburner, leave in the background in game and use it to check GPU temperatures

Put "-benchmark" in your commandline file, does it start the benchmark tool?

Then the commandlines are working, at least formally. So, you ended up using memrestrict switch alone? Try using a lower value and keep slicing it, you should see some effect in the end.

Tried everything now.

 

No matter the graphics/resolution settings, I get the same problem.

 

Might try reinstalling the nVidia drivers and see what happens.

Okay, so I tried everything to get better performance. The only thing I forgot to do was to change the shadow settings.

 

Success! Changing shadows from 'very high' to 'high' gave a 30-35fps boost. Weird?

 

The only difference I see is that the shadows aren't as soft.
