    since last patch 08-05/2018 0.3.0.6402

    i have massive FPS drops on the Nordschleife
    in some turns it begins to stutter and drops to 20fps , it like a fast diashow

    tried to lower some graphics like track details etc. nothing realy helps
    also tried 32bit version , its the same
    i reset global settings on AMD driver 18.3.4 , also only allow settings from the game

    some textures are flickering too

    AMD FX-8350
    MSI r7 370 4g ,driver 18.3.4
    16gb ddr3 at 1866 cl10
    win10 64bit

    before the 64bit version of the game i had something around 120-160 fps depends on track
    now with every update its getting worse :(

    edit :
    in the logs is a file called performance

    [Frame 4] Delta time between frames is too small (rendered the same frame twice?). Delta time is 0.000 ms
    [Frame 5] Delta time between frames is too small (rendered the same frame twice?). Delta time is 0.000 ms
    [Frame 6] Delta time between frames is too small (rendered the same frame twice?). Delta time is 0.000 ms

    Got the same problem here.

    Can you have a look on your CPU-Load when this happens?
    I noticed my cpu jumps up to 100% sometimes for 3-5 secs and then drops again to ~40% when this happens.
    And this is not with KI which would cause more cp load, it happens in singleplayer mutiplayer also.

    Not had this problem before the last patch

    CPU is not going over ~20%
    on a server with 15+ people something round about 30%

    the stuttering is getting worse when more player are there
    lowered visible cars to 10 xD but still same problem

    Had this problem yesterday on a league race.
    For about 10 seconds sound goes off and the picture was stuttering. Than it becomes better, sound was there again, it took a while for the graphics, but everything okay then.
    That was a very frightening experience for me.

    Same problem for me. R3e used to work fine, but now while driving in multiplayer or in singleplayer with other cars,I´m experiencing massive FPS drops , the frame rate goes down to 5 fps and the car shifts automatically to neutral. Then, after several seconds the frame rate stabilizes again until I reach the same point on the track.This didn´t happen before the last update.

    Same here. Although fraps is showing around 100-160 FPS.
    x64 haven't tried the x32
    CPU load is 60-80%
    GPU 70-80%
    Happens after certain amount of time regardless gfx settings amount of AI or track.
    I'm running an i5 6600k and 1070 with some DDR 4.
    If the Devs are interested I can provide more detailed specs or files or run some tests. So sad my favourite SIM is broken :/

    i dont realy know what happend
    but for now i have back my fps and stuttering seems gone

    i cleaned alls AMD driver with
    https://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-articles/Pages/AMD-Clean-Uninstall-Utility.aspx
    and installed the newest driver again

    and a second solution i have
    is to go to steam setting and turn off Shader Pre Caching
    see in the screenshot

    i will see in the next sessions if some problems came back

    edit: also if you use RivaTunerStatistic set the application detection for RRRE64.exe to none
    or completly turn of MSI afterburner and RTSS

    Are you guys on Fanatec wheels by any chance?

    There's an issue being investigated on their side now where downloading FFB effects to the driver of the wheel is returning failure messages to the game client, which then spams logs so bad that it creates a massive framerate drop.

    If this sounds like your issue, you should be able to workaround it by starting the game freshly before a league race. The driver fails only after the 6th FFB effects creation.

    If this is not your issue or if you're not on Fanatec, please share:

    - Your controller hardware types
    - The exact steps you follow to experience the issue
    - Can you attach the game*.log file from the session where you had the issue? (they are timestamped in My Documents\My Games\SimBin\RaceRoom*\Userdata\Logs

    AMD A8-6600k Quad-core @ 3.9 GHz
    Sapphire Radeon RX550 4GB GDDR5
    Kingston Hyper-X 8GB DDR3-1600

    I had this, but it was every track. I deleted my controller profiles, restarted and reassigned buttons, pedals, wheel - everything went back to normal.

    I'm on fanatec csl elite. Deleting raceroom folder from my documents and reconfiguring the wheel fixed the problem.

    Odd, I’m simply not having this issue. Literally ran a 45 minute race this weekend with a 15 minute qualifying, then took a break and came back and did a couple 15 minute online sessions and still was fine (in VR).

    Can I ask what sort of session are you running, how many AI if single player and what track?
