Performance issues - framerate drops
Hi all - I'm running CrossCode on a Ryzen 5 1600 build w/ 8gb dual channel 3000mhz RAM, GTX 1060 6gb and the performance is very poor. Constant frame drops. I've searched for older threads and they recommend things like using the beta channel but that doesn't seem to exist after 1.0 anymore.

Anything I should be trying?

i have an even better build and i have consistant constant fraim drops, stuttering, and screen shaking in a few eairly game areas that i tested out. it only showed up after the most resent update.

there is no fix, and the responce i got in another thread from the developer was "sounds like a problem on your end" and said there's no plan to fix lag or anything.

the funny thing is, i had actually 100% the game before the update, played through the whole thing without a single issue, for well over 120 hours of game play. i only loaded up the game to try out the new update and see what changed, and it was laggy. but apparently that's a problem on my end... an issue that only shows up after an update... ok devs...

for more context, i have a deticated gaming pc, which i don't even use to brows the internet cause i don't even want to slightly risk getting malware or anything that will slow down the thing. and at the time that entire month time frame, i had only used that computer for cross code... the only thing that changed on that pc was it downloaded an update to cross code... i even varified game files to make sure and everything was fine. in my opinion the issue has to lie with cross code.

TLDR: no there isn't anything you should be trying.

The issues don't lie within CrossCode because purely statistically speaking we'd have a LOT more complaints if we truly messed something up in our code. There is also the fact that we barely touched any performance relevant code that could explain any of these issues. We didn't touch rendering or the physics or anything like that. We're just fixing small issues and adding content here and there.

The only explanation is that you kinda switched between the OLD/NW NW.js version and have issues because of that (in which case you should switch to the nwjs_old branch or go back to the default branch and see if that fixes things)

Otherwise we're just bound by how well NW.js runs on the average system and unfortunately there might always be systems where it doesn't work perfectly.

@ekimneems If you have a system with an additional integrated Intel GPU make sure you run the game with the dedicated GTX card.

I appreciate the response (and loooooove the game by the way).

How can I ensure it's using my GPU and not onboard or "software rendering"?

I've been back on the main branch for awhile now

On Windows 10 you have the option of starting the application with each GPU by right clicking the executable. Not sure how to do it with Steam unfortunately.

As for software rendering: This is enabled when for some reason NW.js can't work with your GPU and there is usually not much we can about it except for:
- Using the option --ignore-gpu-blacklist when starting the executable (it SHOULD already be enabled by default, though)
- Updating GPU drivers
- Updating NW.js version to see if that helps

Try switching to windowed mode. I have almost same config as you and only windowed mode works for me (on highest quality settings) but fullscreen is unplayable even at lowest settings.

I was having the same issue, thanks for your suggestion.
