Mirror's Edge: Catalyst - stuttering at regular intervals [FIXED?]


Recommended Posts

Hey all, 

 

This is the first time I'm posting here so hopefully I'm doing it right. 

 

Check out this fix I just submitted to the wiki: http://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Mirror%27s_Edge_Catalyst#Stuttering

 

 

This fix resolves stuttering at regular intervals, unconfirmed if it fixes other stuttering.

Set your monitors refresh rate at 60hz, and set in-game fullscreen option to "windowed". Note that "borderless window" mode will not work.

 

Can anyone else confirm that this fix works for them, please? So far it has worked for me and one of my friends.

If not then I'll probably remove it from the wiki. Thanks.

Hi and first of all, welcome and thanks for contributing. 

 

I noticed that and modified the article a bit. 

The thing is that if you are setting your monitor to 60Hz from OS, first of all this would then be fix only for high refresh rate monitors essentially(?), monitor is then only able to show 60 FPS, meaning if the spikes were under 16.67ms, there would still be stuttering but just wouldn't show as monitor doesn't update faster than that. 

 

Two things I did notice was that with GPU memory limitation turned off, there would be constant spiking in frame rates, with hyper the frame times could spike up to 300ms. But this is really easy to track to lack of memory, meaning that turning that option back on and/or lowering settings fixes it almost completely. Another thing seems to be that there's some online stuff going on and if there's problems with origin or ea servers, it could also make the game stutter. There does seem to be something else for some people, but it does seem like it's also happening on high end systems and nobody seem to have pinpointed it yet. Some speculated controller not being plugged, but that seems like placebo.
