[Linux] Game stutterering consistently (performance independent) #1575
Your system information
Please describe your issue in as much detail as possible:
Since Mars was added, most of the matches I played had a stuttering issue. I would be running at a steady 120 fps, then it would drop a ton for a split second every 1.5 seconds or so. Any unit command or movement of the camera made it worse. The main menu was also affected, and custom games weren't any different.
Rebooting fixed it sometimes, but it wasn't guaranteed.
Also note that I couldn't get the game to launch using Vulcan.
While trying to get a different game running, I switched display managers (
I've been experiencing problems with many other titles that use wine regarding display management (resolution, full-screen, random glitches, etc) which are all fixed now.
I suspect #1318 is similar.
Steps for reproducing this issue:
I'd check dmesg to make sure you're not experiencing
Looks like you're running on nvidia (I hope not with optimus/bumblebee or anything like that) so I guess you're not affected by this debug mesa build problem of fedora 29 :D
@konstantinblaesi Thanks for the advice, but I don't think this is a performance issue. Lowering the settings to minimum didn't affect it at all (besides some random artifacts).
I've tried nvidia's 410, 415, and 418 drivers but they all ran the same.
@kisak-valve The stuttering is back, I'm not sure what changed but it seems the login manager was not the culprit.
