Just some performance report (i3 6300 + RX 570, lastest drivers)!

Original resolution 2560x1440

Same settings but:

1) Stencil

Task is not so much to see what no one has yet seen but to think what nobody has yet thought about that which everybody see. - E.S.

Okay, so the frob outline has been completely disabled in the latest version. I thought the idea was to add an option for it instead of the frob helper? Is this coming in another version or has it been discarded altogether?

As long as the feature is broken, it will not become an option or officially supported in any way, hence why it is disabled now. The only reason it's even still in the code is the vague hope it might be fixed at some point in the future.

Ah, I understand. Any chances to get my strings suggestions into the core game or will this never happen because it would need to be translated into all the languages which nobody has any time or nerve to do at the moment ;)?

I think that's only problem is to find someone who will test them and commit.
Languages always lag behind.

I have a RX570 8GB VRAM, also using latest drivers and I didn't saw such a stark diference in performance between the two! At lest not on the "The gatehouse" mission.

Can you remind me what mission is that pic from? Also do you have the RX 570 4GB? If yes could be perhaps a VRAM limitation? But would be very surprising to me, if TDM maps would stress a 4GB GPU!

Yes, 4 GB; "A new Job" mission.

I don't think it's a VRAM limitation (150 MB difference).

Another thing, while testing the chest sounds in the tutorial mission, I noticed a bad artifact in the heat gaze of the torches. I can't remember seeing this before, but I had similar problems while adding this to Bloodlines...

If you want shadow maps to have comparable performance, you need to set "r_shadowMapSinglePass 1". In its default mode, it's well known to be slower than stencil.

Strange that I have that off?!

Here is the rest of my settings

Could it be changes by @nbohr1more ?

I'll take a look. It could be that some of the particles in that torch are not set to sort last and other are.

I don't see that on the latest SVN with new binaries. Torches look mostly normal. There's some weirdness when I approach them where the heat haze renders over top of the smoke, but as I get closer it goes away and looks normal.

But, I never know if it's these damn AMD drivers or not.

I always assumed I'd taste like boot leather.

Forgot to state that I am on NVIDIA, and indeed most of the time the torches look normal, but sometimes this effect is visible. I would guess like nbohr1more suspects some LOD sprite has the order not set correctly so you only see if when that is active.

Fixed in rev 16360

The strange particle sprite used in the training mission collides with the flame material. Fortunately the material used here is not used in other scenarios that are fixed by sort last. That said, someday we need to make the heat haze in torch flames work better with water or glass materials ( known limitation ).

      When I was a young man my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have him around. As I grew older I was amazed at how much the old man had learned in such a short time.
