Issue Report: Low framerate (lags) at times in SS3:BFE
Hello,
I hope that this Issue it's not being talked about, if it is I'm sorry but I haven't found it.
I have correctly (I hope) installed and configured Steam on my system but, playing at Serious Sam 3: BFE, I see that sometime it lags. This lags occurs because the frames suddenly drops.
It's an already known Issue? How to prevent it?

I don't have CCSM installed and Nvidia V-Sync feature is disabled.

My system is:

Is VSync disabled within the game as well? What's the framerates before and after? Is it happening in areas where there's lots happening?

Here's my list of SS3 performance boosts:

  • Enable performance CPU Frequency Scaling Governor, or for a few FPS more disable Cool'N'Quiet/Powersave/SpeedStep in your BIOS.
  • Disable AMD/NVidia VSync and disable VSync in SS3 upder Graphics options.
  • If using Unity install CompizConfig Session Manager (CCSM) and enable Undirected Fullscreen under General->Compositing, or for a few FPS more use anything other than Unity.
  • Try turning down CPU performance a step in SS3.
  • If running with NVidia I get a 10 FPS boost by enabling OpenGL Threading Optimizations.

I have the same issue too. It is not a general frame rate issue. Its just some times the frame rate goes very slow (less than 1 fps)

This can be resolved by pressing alt + tab, and then reselecting SS3.

I have CPU scaling disabled.
