Since a few months, if not more, I am having difficulties with the FPS in EvE. I posted about this a while back in another thread with what I thought was a fix, but it’s just a workaround I have to do every time.
With 2 clients running my game will use 100% of my GPU and all of it’s memory (4GB). The max FPS on 1 client will be 30 (if I’m lucky) and 1FPS on the other client until I make that window active again by clicking in it.
The only way I have found to temporarely fix this is by de-installing the graphics card driver and re-installing another (later or newer) version. It will be fine for a few days (200+fps on both clients at max graphics) after which the viscious circle continiues and I have to do it all over again.
note: Any other AAA game I can play on high-max settings so my hardware is fine. I’m sure it’s something to do with the game.
First of all my specifications:
Intel Core I7-4790k
MSI GTX970 4Gb Gaming
2 SSD’s (Windows on 512GB, Eve on 120GB)
4TB HDD Storage
One 27" monitor at 1920x1080 and two 24’’ at 1920x1200
Things I have tried:
- Re-installing the game entirely
- Changing from DX11 to DX9
- Downloading all the game resources to SSD.
- Present interval from one to immediate and back.
- Playing in patoto-mode instead of highest graphics. (no change whatsoever)
- Enabling Resource Cache
- Re-installing Windows 10.
Dual/Triple-boxing is an absolute pain-in-the-ass with one client at 30fps and another at 1FPS. Does anyone have any idea how I can fix this permanently?
