Which map?

I need to do some testing, but it appears that my FPS is actually slightly lower with this latest update, Caucasus in particular. 2.5.4 ran beautifully for me in comparison. I play in 4K.

Thanks, BJM.

Overall it seems clearer to me. The ground is better, the frames are smoother. During tanking you can see very nicely and I'm pretty sure the tanker was bobbing up and down more noticeably. Nice update.

maybe they added more polygons, more textures, or more sharpening.

Seems smoother here too. VR, O+. Thanks for the work...crossing fingers the VR improvements go even further. I'd rather give ED my money (for the next module, or two) than nVidia or AMD + Intel + Samsung, etc..for a faster computer.

This update is a big step forward. VR is even playable now. Keep em coming!

Right on ! I can think of 4 modules i'd like to have right away , but am still saving for hardware improvements . If the VR optimisation hits , i'll purchase them instead of saving for a 1080ti .

So, I finally got around to doing some actual testing between 2.5.4 (latest) and the new 2.5.5. I tested with the "Free Flight" Hornet instant action mission in the Caucasus with all of the same graphics settings (playing "2D" at 4K). My frames in 2.5.4 never dropped below 45 FPS when looking at the trees. In 2.5.5, I dropped to and stayed at 30 FPS at various times (I tested both without alt+enter-ing to full screen). When I did go full-screen, my minimums did rise in 2.5.5, but not higher than the minimums I was seeing in 2.5.4 at full screen during that test-go around. It really seems to be the new trees (or their shadows?) I use 'flat' shadows.

Just hoping that the VR optimizations going forward won't be at the expense of us 2D playuhz. :-)

I have a pimax 5k+ and after the new update my fps have dropped
-20 to -25% than before.
but the vr experience look smooth though.. Maybe the ingame fps counter in vr does not work properbly in vr.
It show im having 20fps but if that was true the game would "lag" however that is not the case it run smooth.

I always run the f18c instant action mission where im parked in the airport and use that as reference and i tweak the settings ect.


amd ryzen 7 2700x ( 3700mhh 8 cores and boost 4500 )
32gb 3200ddr 4 ram
m.2
nvidia 2080rtx card. ( it could be its a driver issue with low vr performance vs what it show in fps previously.. I had to format my pc and now it will only install drivers via geforce experience, while before I could download it manualy and install it.

Slight performance increase for me followed by a drop in FPS to <10 in certain circumstances. NOT good, they broke something...
