Games is great but...

Hello guys,

 

Been hearing of the games for some years now and decided to give it a try and buy it.

Games is great so far, really immersive, but... why with a i7 16GB RAM and a RTX2060 do i have to play in medium graphics config to barely have 30 fps ??

Maybe you have quite some bloat in the background? Never had the same issue with the worse setup of an i5-3570 16GB RAM and an RX580...

Else try looking into the GPU settings if it maybe tries to use some of its features, like ray tracing, even in games not made for it (and the tooltip for VSYNC ingame says something about NVIDIA cards not always accepting ingame settings for it and overwriting it with their own setting)... From the little info I have that's all I can think of...

Yeah, i guess i'll investigate later this week and try the manual installation instead of the AUR package.

 

Edit: Ok found the issue, had to install optimus-manager and manually switch to nvidia with "optimus-manager --switch nvidia", nvidia card was install but not totally working (it was ok to use HDMI and displayport external monitors but not really active for gaming).
 

Now i'm 65fps in Glorious mode and 30fps in Absolute Maximum.

Oh and manually install mono seems to help too

you dont need it on arch only install it from pacman
on Notebooks with an dedicatet gpu from nvidia  you alwas switch to the nvidia card on all games.
thats the reason why i switch my laptops bios setting to only use the graphics card from Nvidia and not both

I think in general, VS needs some optimization in this part, as I should be able to run it on the highest settings as well (I think), and yet had to turn down a lot of features to have it run smoothly.
Still looks good, though :D

Yeah when i say manually i mean the all-in-one package AUR vs just mono from pacman + the tar.gz version of VS.

And as for the GPU, i usually only use the nvidia gpu as my laptop is never on battery, but its the first time that i have to manually switch to the dedicated GPU after the drivers installation.

 

Anyway it's all good for me now.
