Performance issues.
« on: October 31, 2019, 12:16:15 PM »

My game freezes several times every time i enter into battle, i think its due to the carrier ships. But im not sure.

I also want to know how many performance options i have on the game.

I have an AMD E2 7th Gen, and just 128 mb video memory with 4gb ram.

I know its slighly lower than required, so thats why i want to cram the game to the lowest possible possible. Anyone can give me advice?

Thanks in advance.

You could try to reduce the battle size in the options, so less ships fight at once. Yet they (can) enter as reinforcements when other ships are destroyed.
Not Sure if that helps though.

I already did, but, game keeps freezing during battles, i guess i just need a better pc after all. My main pc died a few months ago.

You could further tune it down in the ini file in the starsector folder.
Maybe a lower resolution below your native one if you havent tried.

Yeah, reducing the resolution is not a bad idea, it could help.

Also: turning off anti-virus/anything else that might be running. That the game keeps *freezing* is odd, I would just expect it to be pretty slow, so it's possible there's something tunable/fixable here. 128mb vram is very low, though, that's probably the biggest problem - I imagine that ram is being used to supplement it which will make things slower...

What settings should i tweak to lowest then? I can handle that, but i want to be sure i dont touch the wrong part.

Its the settings file right? Or is there another i need to edit?
