Small Warning About the Game's Performance [Re-titled]
Doom 3 BFG suffers from some stuttering issues. It's at random too. The game rolls a dice to decide whether it wants to run smoothly or choppy.

Disagree, No trouble here so far. I would suggest this to people that do not have the normal version. If you are on the fence on which one to get the normal one can be modded to pretty good levels.

There are a good number of factors that can affect how a game performs. All I know is that I notice the microstutter enough to put me in a bad mood. It's gets so bad that even when using a controller it can get choppy. "Mileage" may vary though.

Whelp, runs butter smooth for me it must be something on your end. I assume you have tried messing with your settings and checking your driver set-up.

Well in my pc runs very good
No problems here, im totally disagree with you :v

Yeah. Tried various v-sync settings, pre-rendered frames, and other stuff from the video card's control panel. I honestly still believe it's the game that won't work properly. When the stuttering happens it's sorta minimal, but I'm sensitive enough to pick it up. It's also easier to notice since I'm playing with a controller. It does come and go away, and I just found that pausing and resuming the game ends the stuttering for the time being. I think most people don't see it because the game's motion blur setting kinda masks the problem.

Anyways, I guess it was a ♥♥♥♥ move to make this thread. But to be fair in the beginning it frustrated me to no end. I'm just gonna have to suck it up and play through it.

Glad you retitled, but really no trouble here on an i5-750, 8gram, and 7850. Also I play with Motion Blur off not for performance reason just think it looks like crap in nearly all games. Have you tried disabling in game V-sync and forcing it on your card or with a 3rd party app? Good luck!

Doesn't matter what forces the vsync, or leaving it disabled, the stuttering still happens now and then. Anyways, I'm still gonna play it to the end. I like it so far other that the performance issue. It's just that of all pc gaming problems, stuttering imo is one of the worst. I'd rather play at a constant 30 fps than at 60 or 120 with stuttering.

What settings are u using how much video memory do u have? how much ram do u have what kinda hard drive do u have? any one of those can make a difference

I'm well above the system recommendation for Doom 3 BFG. The game just stinks at performance.

I'm going to have to agree with Indianapolis Jones...I have the same problems, maybe I need to adjust settings?

Try to ignore it as best as you can. The stuttering does go away after some time. It just comes and goes. At least it's pretty minimal, at least through my eyes.

There has to be some Hardware/Software problem that is causing it. I hope you guys can figure it out.

Critics have praised the performance of this port, and widescreen looks spectacular.

All of my friends run this butter-smooth, and 2 are running this on a laptop. Sounds like a problem isolated to your setup OP and BobArcter as well. It could possibly be a rare issue with the game and not your PC... but I doubt it.

Try running Doom 3 on any PC and I think even if your BFG stutters, you'll be sticking with BFG :) That's what I hated the most about the original Doom 3 (and the crappy widescreen) -- so I've got to give credit to the guys that made this game. Great remake performance-wise definetly, and overall, a nice collection.

Or that you and your friends just don't notice it. Like I've stated before, the microstuttering is very minimal, and it comes and goes randomly. It's even more noticeable when using a controller when the stuttering happens, not so much when using a mouse and keyboard since most move their mouse rapidly.

It turns out I'm blind... after all this time too!!

But seriously, no microstutter. I've been gaming on PC for a long time and I'm quite pedantic about the smallest of things. That includes: frame-skipping, microstutters, screen tearing, etc. I did read your post and I did see you claiming it was minimal and hardly noticeable -- but I would've spotted it sooner or later.

Fraps shows a constant 60 and having played it a few weeks ago (4 hours with no stops)... I didn't notice one single bit of stuttering. You shouldn't assume people aren't as observant as you which is basically what you're putting forward.

It's more than likely you're trying to fault this port when it could possibly be your PC. Why do I say that? Because the "stuttering" threads you've commented on in this hub, and the users that posted there, seem to have had their problems solved when they simply updated to the latest graphics drivers....
