Hello Everyone. I am fairly new to UE4, and i am on the verge to Madness ^^
I have been trying to look up my Issues almost everywhere on the Internet, but unfortunately to no avail
So i guess i start trying to explain what´s wrong, and hopefully someone can put an end to my Misery.
As i started using UE4 i stumbled upon the A Boy and his Kite Demo pretty soon. I read the spec requirement, thought it would fit, and downloaded it. After loading the Levels the FPS dropped down to 2fps.
- AMD FX-8350
- Nvidia Geforce GTX 970
- 24 GB Ram
- Gigabyte GA-78LMT Motherboard
- Win 10 64 bit
At first i thought, well, maybe my graphics card is outdated, but then i saw this A Boy and His Kite: Unreal Engine 4 Gameplay & Demo 1080P | Gtx 980 Ti - YouTube
So i guess my Performance should be at least somewhere close to that.
My second guess was: well, looks like your hardware is broken. But how would that explain running Dark Souls 3 on a constant 60 fps with hightest settings
Then i set up my own scene. Just a landscape with a layer-blended Material and some Meshes.
I didn´t get far … The stuff you see on the Pictures is pretty much everything i got in this scene. And i am already down to 18-20 fps. I´m pretty sure that was not how it was supposed to be.
So i dug deeper. I tried to use the Tools inside UE4 to figure out where my Performance is goin to hell that hard.
So when i look at those numbers it might seem, that i have a lot of stuff goin on.
In Reality i just got a landscape with a little bit of foliage and small Meshes.
I was actually only starting to set up a scene.
So my next guess was: Maybe i have some bad mistakes in some of my materials.
But hiding my Landscape only gives a very little FPS Plus. And on the other hand hiding all the Meshes doesn´t do a lot either.
It just seems like something very odd is goin on. Maybe just a simple tick in some preferences, which i just happen to miss all the time.
I tried a lot of checking and unchecking in all the preferences and the lighting, but to no avail.
I checked the compatibility Wiki, and i got none of the software listed there.
Also, the GPU is running on 100% all the time. Dark Souls 3 on highest settings is only 70%
I have no Idea what to do next, cause it feels like i already tried everything.
I really hope you have an idea what´s going on, cause i´m really enjoying the hell out of UE4
If you need any further detailed Information i will gladly provide it
