Nvidia driver performance problem

Update, the devs will incorporate the NVidia fix in the next game patch. In the meantime use the "Nvidia fix" UI Mod - found in the mod vault.

@IpsilonX The old driver 27.21.14.5751 from november works.

@Skha I've been using the one from Dec 2nd (457.51) with little issue (if you move the mouse a LOT for a while it'll start to hiccup, but that's about it)
Gonna be testing the one that came out on March 16th and will update it here.

Update: Still causes issues. Have decided to change the polling rate to 125, as that seems to completely resolve the stuttering without having to change the driver again

Well well, isn't that a surprise ^^

Was just about to mention I've never had any nvidia driver problems untill yesterday, which was weird as I've been using that driver for several weeks without problems as well. No idea how it suddenly, without any sort of update, caused sound issues in the game and even in the lobby. Just reverted back to driver version 457.09 using the driver's "clean install" function which fixed everything for now.

Still good to see it's getting solved the proper way.
I'll keep this driver install as backup though 😉

NVidia released a new driver (466.11) on April 14 which they claim fixes the supcom stuttering issue:

[Supreme Commander/Supreme Commander 2]: The games experience low FPS. [3231218/
3230880]

However we are getting mixed reports from players about its effectiveness.

If you upgrade the driver and turn off the ui fix mod, do you still get an issue?

Don't forget:

Laticlave has helpfully made a UI mod titled "Nvidia fix" to correct the driver issue until we can get a proper patch out. Feel free to download it from the vault!

I updated the NVidia new driver (466.11) and removed the ui mod nvidiafix. I did not find any problems.

Latest Nvidia driver installed and mod removed. So far so good after one game, no issues at all.

I tried this and removed the nvidia fix mod. The issue was much improved but it still remained.

I believe it's because I have two monitors. When I unplug my second monitor it works fine. If I plug it back in, it instantly has the fps stutter again. Also, using the nvidia fix mod or the console command instantly fixes it again.

If anyone else with multiple monitors can do some testing that would be nice. The easiest way is with rapid scrolling in/out whilst moving the mouse side to side with a few air units on screen.

I have reported my findings to nvidia.
