For those of you having fps drops and stutter due to controller/fightstick
I have noticed that a good amount of people including myself have been having issues with the game stuttering for a second or two when their controller is plugged in. I think I may have come across a solution for it. I read somewhere that disabling or completely uninstalling the HID compliant game controller in the device manager removes the stuttering and the drops. I have tried this myself and found that this fixes it. The only thing is that you need to make sure you do this every time you start up your computer because windows will automatically reinstall the driver. Hope this helps everyone with this problem! Spread the word!

EDIT: I have found that after awhile the driver will reinstall itself randomly. If you disable the driver it will stay disabled and you won't have worry about it affecting your game. This way you won't have to keep uninstalling it every time you start up your computer.

lol.... the only way to play this game is controller/fightstick, less u wanna spend $100+ on a mechanical keyboard.

Oh yeah my bad I forgot to mention that your controller/fighstick still completly works after you do this so you don't have to worry about not being able to use it. I couldn't imagine playing this game without my fightstick :p

I'm not trolling. You don't need the HID complient game controller driver to use your controller/fightstick. It's just a backup driver that windows automatically installs on your computer when you start it up. This fixes the stuttering problem and lets you keep using your controller/fightstick in the process. Sorry for the confusion.

Glad it helped :) Spread the word!!!

I was struggling with trying to find what caused severe stuttering ingame while using a PS3 controller with SCP. This fixed it completely and the game works perfectly. Thank you!

I don't know if it depends on the controller, but without the driver I can't use my ds4 or my xbox one controller. Even though it didn't solve my problem, it did shorten the fps drops which is a plus so thank you for that. I hope another solution comes up so I can fix this since this has been happening to me in SFV and now in Tekken.

can you please show how the game runs with the stuttering and the fps drops and w/o it?.

i will appreciate a lot.

Here is one example. The stuttering I was having wasn't this extreme but was pretty noticable.

I've further investigated this. I think this is the root of many problems. Some people with high-end hardware (e.g. GTX1070 + i7-4790K), which should easily play it at steady 60FPS, were reporting random FPS drops. Inlcuding me.

My problem: I got random FPS drops to 51FPS, my character was jumping. Unplugging a controller and replugging it also gave me drops to 51FPS, making me think, that both issues were somehow related.

Disabling "HID compliant game controller" in Device Manager didn't help. Also, my DS4 pad stopped working. However, I've got 20 active devices under HID. This is due to newer gaming peripherals registering as multiple HID devices for macro functionality etc. Also, my USB soundcard has knobs, which also count as HID devices etc. All in all they add up to 20.

After disabling half of these HID devices, the FPS drops issue completely went away. Some of these devices added 2 - 3 FPS (notably Logitech hardware), others 1 FPS. But summed up, they caused FPS drops up to 9FPS and made my game hang for a short amount of time. So I needed to disable multiple of them, to achieve what I wanted.

Tekken 7 seems to enumerate HID and Sound devices, whenever hardware changes (can also happen, when hardware wakes up etc.). The longer your list of HID / Sound devices, the more FPS drops. This seems to cause freezes on even the highest-end of gaming rigs.

Now, whenever I plug in / out a controller, my character no longer jumps, FPS no longer drops, game no longer hangs (atleast it's not noticable). The only issue I'm having now, is that inputs seem to be shortly interrupted, whenever you plug in another controller.

Can anyone with 15+ HID devices confirm this issue? And confirm this issue going away, after disabling unneeded HID devices? Would love to get the Tekken Dev Team fix this is in their code.

Does a drop in FPS sometimes result in the game crashing?

I can vouch for this. I have multiple HID devices, dropping my FR to as low as 37fps at times. I really hope the Tekken dev team does something to fix this. It's rather cumbersome uninstalling an reinstalling drivers to play at full speed. That being said my Bluetooth XBOne controller seems to be causing the most interference, as disconnecting it mid game causes the FPS to boost back up to a consistent 60. If only it were easier to see which devices are represented by each HID in Device manager...

Using Titan X (Pascal) and Ryzen 1700X, so I'm certain it's not an internal hardware issue.
