Sudden frame drops problem?

  • Hi

    So I have noticed some sudden frame drops in games that is really annoying.

    for example we have a really simple game which frame rate is 60 but sometimes its frame rate suddenly drops to 57 for 1 second and then comes back to 60.

    Is it a common issue or my computer has a problem?

  • Your computer is fine. The fluctuation of framerate is common and it happens once in a while, not only for C2 games, but also other games using some other engines too.

    Also, framerate is updated once every second only. Perhaps a frame got a tiny hiccup, that's why it got 57 fps. But this is negligible, I'd say.

    I believe one of the possible reasons for this framerate drop is Garbage Collection: https://www.scirra.com/blog/76/how-to-w ... javascript

  • There shouldn't be a problem as long as it stays FPS 30+ anyways.

  • the problem is it makes the movement look bad for a second, for example an object is moving suddenly it stops for 0.5 second or skip few steps which make the game not look smooth

    Wow, I have the same. Have you found what is the reason of the frame drop? Have you fixed it? Halp

  • It causes noticeable hiccups and can make an otherwise smooth game look very choppy.

  • Here with the same. Any solution?
