0.7.2.1 FPS Issue; Fix Implementation

Commanders,

Following your feedback about players experiencing FPS drops since the recent update we’ve been hard at work trying to isolate the issue and produce a fix. We now believe it is being caused by a bug in a system which is responsible for refreshing low-level UI objects. The bug manifests after a certain number of battles have been played in succession, with the number depending on the characteristics of the system the game is running on. We’re now testing a fix for this issue internally and have also deployed that fix on the 0.7.3 Public Test server.

For those of you most affected and who would like to help verify the effectiveness of this fix, we are also releasing it in the form of a mod for the current production version of the game client (0.7.2.1). However, it requires that your client is free from any other modifications, as their presence can interfere with its operation and provide misleading data for us about the effectiveness of the fix. Here are the instructions on how to install it.

Spoiler

WARNING: ‘Launch the game in safe mode’ is NOT an alternative for game client modification uninstall in this very case

WARNING: If you’re not sure you can fully uninstall game client modifications do not proceed with this manual

 

Mod installation manual:

  1. Delete all of game client modifications if you have any
  2. Check & repair game integrity using launcher or WGC

How to do in WGC

4. Make sure the result is successful. To do this, open game folder and check way “<game folder>\res_mods\0.7.2.1\gui\flash\”.

You should see 7 files inside:

  1. Launch the game using WGC or Launcher
  2. In case you’ll have one of following issues: game freeze, game client performance drop, non-working consumables, ships icons absence, please add following info to this topic (all of materials must be gathered after closing game client):
    1. File: ...\<game_folder>\profile\python.log
    2. Screenshots\video with to indicate occurred issuer
  3. DxDiag file

How to create DxDiag?

  • DxDiag file (see instruction here)

After checking the files from the folder "<folder with the game> \ res_mods \ 0.7.2.1 \ gui \ flash \" manually delete them.

Based on the results of checking the changes and tests, it will be decided to release this fix as a patch for the client version of the game.

 

Depending on test results from the 0.7.3 Public Test server and the feedback from players who chose to install the fix-mod we will make a decision on how to proceed further with this fix and when to deploy it to production servers should the test prove successful.

 

We hope this test will be a success and that the fix produced will get rid of these recent FPS drops for affected users. We’re sorry for the inconvenience this has caused our players.

 

Best,

The World of Warships Team
