    The new performance settings are currently not working / don't do anything.

    it's good that you reported this, I noticed it as well based off of what I am seeing it doesn't appear to be working yet while it's been added it just doesn't seem functional it probably still needs adjustments. Main places I noticed it in was Calpheon and Port Epheria

    Noticed this as well. Bumped my settings up to a point that would cause me to drop to single-digit FPS while in Heidel, and it did not trigger.

    Hi everyone,

    Does pressing Shift + F5 work for you? Please note that this works outside of towns only.

    Best regards,

    It do nothing at all. testing in heidel near the storage with a lot of ppl. I'am at like 45fps, and the game hide jack sh#t.
    Do we have to hit like 3fps to have the game do something ?
    Why cant we choose regardless the framerate to hide others character / mount / wagon and so ?

    ( not saying shift + F5 ) only change the option from the menu without having to open it )

    As you can see, no single difference between on & off

    EDIT : only the -character optimization- distance slider seem to have an effect, but very minimal, between 10 and 50, it save me like. 5fps.

    Can you try it outside of town? Outside the safe zone.

    Best regards,

    outside town / safe zone, there is no one to see, and i dont have any fps issues ( most of the time at 90-100).. so that's will not show anything.
    if that option doesnt work in town, that's pretty stupid, since aside from world boss, that's the place where such thing would be the most usefull

    I'm not seeing any difference when I use Shift + F5 even outside of towns. I mean I'm sitting in the middle of the Epheria Sea right now trying what was suggested and I literally see no change.
    Edited for added video for context for @GM Dew to see.

    It doesn't work outside towns either. Was in Kama with the setting enabled, and I still saw every other PC, and no one was flagged. Was near a raid boss spawn with ~10 other people in the area. =/

    Also this feature not working in towns is stupid. Do you know how laggy Heidel can get when it has to render 200 other players and up to 800 mounts? (Assuming all 200 players are using a 4 horse wagon.)

    It works... try it in a node war. This setting works but it wont turn off PC and ur fps has to be **** a.k.a siege/node war setting

    What people are wanting from this setting, is to hide all PC instantly,

    I don't do node wars or siege, and as for it my fps it's between 50 and 60 fps anywhere else but in Calpheon near the storage manager it drops to 23 to 25, and the function to hide players unless they are flagged or negative karma does not work otherwise. Even with Shift + F5 it doesn't seem to work in or out of cities, and that's with a Nvidia GTX 1080

    Are you serious..? Hiding hordes of players in towns is the second main reason for wanting this.

    If you have a processing costume, you gotta pile up into these mountains of flesh and watch your FPS plummet. Then you can't just run off and let the game consume as little power as possible while you take a nap when it needs to deal with all of this crap.

    Seems like PA just added a new menu optimization, but there isnt anything else , they coded.. the menu, and that's all [​IMG] [​IMG]

    They was really naive to think this placebo would have any effect xD

    @woots I'm sure that's why @Ibirujo posted this video in the first place, because they realized the same thing.

    yup, -optimization- not doing anything xD That's kind of a good joke xD
     
  18. It is not working, anywhere.
    Thanks for the support ... although,
    @GM Axion already acknowledged it (French section):

    Good morning @Shimrra_Firil ,

    Thank you for telling me this, I also tested this option last night and found that it unfortunately did not work. :(

    The report has in any case been done, and knowing that this is a highly anticipated option, I hope that the problem will be quickly resolved.

    Good game to you and spend an excellent day. :)

    Cordially,
    GM Axion

    Still beyond me what PA thinks an option to hide players OUTSIDE OF A CITY is gonna do. We want it inside the danged city.
