Game breaking bug, lagspikes, slowdowns. [PC]


supersnel

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I am experiencing a massive, nearly game breaking bug. I get a HUGE amount of lagspikes/slowdowns. In race, in time trial, event mode,...
It slows down, then speeds up and puts me into a wall. 
They happen, sometimes every 5 minutes, sometimes every 20 seconds, sometimes only every 10 minutes.
These are just at random, sometimes when doing more intensive workloads in the game. Randomly freezed and speeds up. Very, very annoying.
I have experienced multiple other bugs, too much to even begin.

You know, I and everyone on this forum payed for this game. You expect a finished product, or at least a day one patch. Something!
Very disappointing and it just ruins the first impression of codemasters and f1 games for everyone.

Specs: Ryzen 1300x (small OC, but always stable, even in other games and in aida64); GTX 1060 3gb (zotac), 8gb ram(ddr4 @2666).
Normal cpu, gpu and ram usage.

If needed, I can provide game information files and video fragments.

Platform: PC,
Region: Belgium

Please fix this, thank you.

I'm experiencing this too. But gpu usage drops to zero momentarily while the freeze occurs, which isn't normal you utilisation.

Ryzen 1700 and 1080ti

Could be something to do with the game's handling of ryzens?
Yeah, could be possible. I havent monitored my GPU usage yet, but I'll look for it.
Hopefully this can be solved. I remebremthat Ben (aka Tiametmarduk) also had a similar issue and he also has a heavy duty gaming pc, but crucially also with a Ryzen CPU. Could be related to that then.

Do you guys have anymore information that could help CM to resolve this issue?

@Hoo, @Faya 
I read the other post on older CPUs but it doesn't seem to be the same problem in this case. Can you look further into this. We will provide further details if necessary.

The most often issue is getting 0,2s -0,5s lag spikes at turns and its really affective while racing, My CPU is AMD Phenom X4 965 which has already got fixed it's compatilibity in beta version. I wish CM could do something with this error, which is not happening for the first time

Yeah, I saw that post.
I just get random slowdowns, also in turns, but not always.
Things I have noticed: 
There are 2 types of lagspikes, all occuring to us.
*The random ones, just when driving on the circuit. (I mostly get these in races, practice, quali,...)
*The ones related to a higher performance demand. When driving over polystyrene boards, when driving in the pit box, when cars ram in to you, when AI cars collide, when a flag gets triggered.

In normal conditions I am getting about 120 FPS, but when the slowdowns happen it goes down to 15 FPS. Lowering the settings doesn't help and the game isn't bottlenecked by any component.
@Hoo, something to do with AMD CPUs? And will installing the 1.04.1 test help anything on this? Is it worth a try or not?

It actually can be GPU as well, I've read similar articles and most of the errors were happening for people with Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070/1080. It's still not fixing  my problem as my GPU is MSI Radeon R7 370 
Yeah, I'l check the post on the GTX 1070/1080, this could really have something to do with this. You're really helpful! We might be on to something right here. If just CM could give us some confirmation on what is causing this. That would be awesome.

After making update to the drivers i can say that the game is a bit more playable - i mean the fact lag spikes are shorter, and i found out about really interesting thing, basically the lag spikes are happening when the car has physics impact like hitting the kerb, and contact with the other driver. I had perfectly fine pure game until i hit the kerb or touched another car.

@supersnel - thanks for gathering the above information. It does sound like there are a couple of issues being reported here, so we will try and unpick what is happening. 
If anyone posting into the thread could confirm exactly what type of slowdown issue they are seeing, and include basic PC specs, that would help us to track down this issue. 
You can try the beta branch if you want, although it hasn't been tested on your configuration. If you do try it, you can simply change back to the main game (v1.04) at any time by setting the drop-down list in the beta branch tab to "NONE" and apply your change.

@Hoo My Type of lag Spike is small  freeze on turns and sstraights and it mosty happens on car Physics impact like hitting kerbs, suspension work and contact with other car. It's really annoying considering the game works fine 
My PC spec is 
AMD Phenom x4 965 3.50 GHz 
AMD Radeon R7 370 2GB 
8 GB RAM

Ok, so I tried the beta, but as expected that didn't help.
Here is some more information though. I made 2 video's that are showing what the game slowdowns are about.
This first video is with All settings set to HIGH, TAA enabled, SSRT shadows on. In border less window mode. (And no, playing in full screen doesn't help.) The settings are quite high, but I'm getting 74 FPS on average, enough for my 60 Hz panel. (Usage is in the top left.)
https://youtu.be/wU0h_mpG4BI?t=1m15s
Timestamps for the game freezes: [1:332:152:303:023:203:303:413:484:304:404:51](are also in the comments)

In this video, I ran with significantly lower settings. Still all settings to HIGH but with TAA checkerboarding and SSRT shadows disabled.
It didn't help whatsoever as you can see in the video. I'm still getting the same amount of game freezes as before. I also tried to cause some crashes, to have a high amount of physics updates, so you can see the result. I'm getting about 96 FPS on average.
https://youtu.be/p4IiMs1S6Ns?t=11s
Timestamps for the game freezes: [0:310:371:211:502:012:182:393:453:564:10](are also in the comments)
Look very good for the usage rates on the left. When a lagspike occurs, it sometimes goes down to zero.
If you want, I can test it with more parameters visible on the rivatuner monitor.

You didn't ask fot it but here's a copy of my dxdiag I ran anyway:

I'm on an i7 4790k and I can't even get the game to load. Just sits in a loop black screening all the time.
Getting fed up waiting for a response.
It doesn't look like your problem has anything to do with the lagspikes/gamefreezes, but I also want your problem to be fixed.

I get the small lag spikes at EXACTLY same places as you do, but i don't get so big framedrops as game is all the time 60 fps, and these lag spikes are really annoying as I said before

I had another bug, but I'm not sure if it's related to the original problem. My game crashed when in an interview with the error popping up: "D3D device disconnected." There was a bunck of other text but I didn't have enough time to take a screenshot, because it quit te game.
Again, not sure if it's related, but it's extra information I can give to @hoo and his team.
I'll try to reproduce it.

My game started to work without any problems now. At least at China...
@supersnel
Try taking off camera movement in camera settings.
I hope you get your game working better now!
Edit: the lag spikes came back at baku 
Yeah, Ivm also at China and disabled the camera movement as you sugesugge. It didn't really help. Bahrein was quite bad but it seems like that in China it's better. But it's still making the game very annoying.
I really hope they can fix this, because I'm gonna have to ask a refund if they don't.
The worst thing is that I'm also getting it in online. I then lag back, about 100 meters, every time a gamefreeze occurs.

I won't ask for a refund because i only get these small lag spikes I've been always getting, and they always were fixed in later future so I hope we will see a fix as fast as we did last year

Well, I'll wait until the next patch and see if thetfix it. But it's pretty undrivable. You can't do a consistent lap with this bug.
If you take a look at this: https://youtu.be/h3UkxKfYFKE
You can see why I can't do a normal race.
I also do league races, so that's going to be a big problem.

I am also getting these lag spikes, freezes (also in F1 2017 fully patched)... Some tracks and races are better, sometimes it's undrivable (e.g. a race at Montreal usually has many lag spikes). In Monaco also in Time Trial, just like in Leclerc's hotlap in the official F1 video.

My specs:
Intel i5 4460
EVGA GTX 1060 6GB
8GB RAM DDR3

Tried installing the game on HDD, SSD both non-system drive and system drive. Nothing seems to help. CPU usage around ~45-50%, GPU usage ~70-80% with the game capped at 64 FPS using RivaTuner Statistics Server.

Thank you for the information. It could be really helpful for @hoo and his team. I didn't really catch it in your message, but do you also have the issue on F1 2018?
- Can you upload a DxDiag of your pc? (Info on how to do it is in the first topic of technical assistance.) This could help with diagnosing the issue.
- Try lowering the settings, does it help or not? Try turning on or off TAA and SSRT shadows.
- What programs do you have running in the background than can interfere with the game? Do you have a clue on that?
Reece251 said:
Ok that didn't fix it but what has "resolved" it for me is by capping the framerate at 60 FPS. I have had no issues since doing this and I will keep it that way until the next patch.
I'll try that out. Updating the drivers once again then. Locking it to 60 FPS with vsync didn't work for me, still got the stutter. 
I find that it really depends and sometimes you get it on every corner, but sometimes only once or twice a lap. Like I told earlier, there are these two types of gamefreezes, sometimes just random ones, but sometimes ones that occitwhen there's a higher workload.

Yes, with F1 2018 as well, the same kind of lag spikes as with the previous game(s). I have SSRT disabled and going lower than TAA is not an option, TAA already looks... well, not that great. Checkboard looks terrible at 1080p and no AA looks like rFactor. In the background, the usual Steam, Origin, MSI Afterburner, Logitech Gaming Software for the mouse, Plex Media Server. The latter two were not present when I was having the same issue with F1 2017.

I'm having similar lagspikes to those in @supersnel's video. My specs:
Intel Core i5 4590
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960
8GB RAM
I've also noticed that the slowdowns seem to be more common when driving around lots of AI cars, during collisions, etc making me think the lag spikes are associated with some kind of CPU bottleneck. Hoping for a patch soon!

Yes you're right. I also don't like it when it's below TAA, but you never know.
Hopefully @Hoo sees this and they can find the problem and fix it.

I've looked at CPU bottlenecking, but it didn't seem to cause the lagspikes as you can see here: https://youtu.be/p4IiMs1S6Ns

With that rig, running the game should be no problem whatsoever. Normally, everything should run fine. So I think we can definitely say now, that this bug has nothing to do with low specs and nothing with AMD processors.

Hello, i'm having lag spykes/stuttering problems also, all of them in racing moments. EXACTLY like @supersnel video posted above. 

I'm just racing and then, out of nowhere the game freezes for like 0.2 second (i'm not exact here) and then comes back, sometimes i hear the sound being messed in that short period, when it comes back, sometimes not. My wheel goes crazy for a second too and a lot of times i lost control of the car... It's really annoying. I tried already turning on and off Vsync, tried all options related to that sound option... low for 60fps or less, etc... 

I'm running at 2560x1080 144hz, and the game runs like 100-120 fps all the time, except when i get a sttutering.... My system is a I7 4790k, 16gb ram and a Gtx 1080. 

Thanks!

Yep seems like the same issue. Good point you're mentioning the wheel. I actually have the same thing happened to me with the force feedback just freezing up. Sometimes  I also loose the car. With this information the guys over at CM sure can do something hopefully.

@hoo @DriverNumber22
I'm sure you're following this topic so please tell us as soon as you can if there's any chance this problem will be fixed. I know you guys are hard at work on fixing other bugs but some feeback would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you all on this topic for keeping this an active one and giving all the information you can.

HI all. Thanks for all the extra info being added. We are still trying to piece the information together and reproduce the issues internally. We don't have any fixes yet, but are continuing to investigate.

I'm basically experiencing exactly what's depicted in this video. Mine might not be quite as severe but the effect is the same, small micro stutters that really throw off your handling.

I have a question to the guys having the issue, maybe it's not important but i think "does not cost to ask"... Any of you guys have a wi-fi adapter connected to the PC? I have one of these https://www.tp-link.com/us/products/details/cat-5519_TL-WN881ND.html

I'm not even using it anymore, i'm with cable directly into the lan port now, but it's in the PC... and i dont know, i THINK once i had a similar issue in a game or two, even maybe a CM game, because i play a lot of it for a long time now, hehehehe. Anyway, it was something related to this little wifi card, but there was a workaround (cant remember it:neutral:), anyway, i'm trying everything here, tomorrow i'll try to take out of my PC and see if the game gets better.  

EDIT: Some other information... It does not make a lot of sense but anyway, first time i was having the stutterings i tried to fix disabling steam overlay, i did and it worked, at least for that play session (yesterday), but today when i tried to play it again, steam overlay still disable but the stuttering was there. Just saying to give the largest amount of information possible. 

I'm uploading my DXDIAG just in case...

Maybe you guys suffering from this problem can maybe try see if changing your game from fullscreen mode to windowed (fullscreen) mode in settings helps with the issue?

It's seemingly helped improve the situation for people suffering with what appears to be poor frame latency causing judder and generally unsmooth looking gameplay, especially online, in another thread. Would be interesting to see if the problems are linked in any way.

I have a question to the guys having the issue, maybe it's not important but i think "does not cost to ask"... Any of you guys have a wi-fi adapter connected to the PC? I have one of these https://www.tp-link.com/us/products/details/cat-5519_TL-WN881ND.html

I'm not even using it anymore, i'm with cable directly into the lan port now, but it's in the PC... and i dont know, i THINK once i had a similar issue in a game or two, even maybe a CM game, because i play a lot of it for a long time now, hehehehe. Anyway, it was something related to this little wifi card, but there was a workaround (cant remember it:neutral:), anyway, i'm trying everything here, tomorrow i'll try to take out of my PC and see if the game gets better.  

EDIT: Some other information... It does not make a lot of sense but anyway, first time i was having the stutterings i tried to fix disabling steam overlay, i did and it worked, at least for that play session (yesterday), but today when i tried to play it again, steam overlay still disable but the stuttering was there. Just saying to give the largest amount of information possible. 
Yeah, the stuttering is pretty inconsistent at times. Sometimes it's worse sometimes it's better. I do not have a WiFi adapter connected to my PC. 
Maybe another question that came to my mind: are you guys using an overclock on your CPU of some sort?
I've already tested GPU overclocking but that doesn't matter. The games still stutters massively even with my GPU OC disabled.
If anyone could confirm they're running at stock settings with their CPU, then we could rule that out.
Disabling the steam overlay doesn't seem to do a whole lot in my case.

Maybe you guys suffering from this problem can maybe try see if changing your game from fullscreen mode to windowed (fullscreen) mode in settings helps with the issue?

It's seemingly helped improve the situation for people suffering with what appears to be poor frame latency causing judder and generally unsmooth looking gameplay, especially online, in another thread. Would be interesting to see if the problems are linked in any way.
Yeah, we tried that already. It doesn't make a difference. I already tried running the game on all different settings, disabling and lowering each option in advanced video settings one by one, but I couldn't come up with a clear answer.

We greatly appreciate you're looking into it @hoo, if there's any information you need, we're here to provide it to you.

Have a nice day everyone.

I run stock CPU and GPU so OC can be ruled out.

I searched the internet for the same issue in previous games, one potential solution (that doesn't work in F1 2018) is making the almost 2GB replay.pbf read-only in ...\AppData\Local\Temp\Codemasters\...\replay\ replay.pbf. In the case of making this file read-only the game doesn't start at all. If it's the real culprit, I don't know, but I will try to report everything I can find.

F1 2018 is a HUGE step up for sim racers, it would be a shame if such a stupid problem would take away from the experience...

Getting exactly the same slowdowns as shown in the youtube videos posted here. Also when these happen my steering wheel goes completely numb for duration of the slowdown/freeze/stutter.

Lowering or upping graphic settings doesnt make difference.
No help of disabling steam overlay
Tried with several versions of graphic drivers, no help
Only usb devices are mouse(Razer deathadder chroma), keyboard(Ducky shine 4) and steering wheel(Thrustmaster T300)

Operating System: Windows 10 Pro 64-bit (10.0, Build 17134)
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4770K CPU @ 3.50GHz
Memory: 8192MB RAM
Card name: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960

Using stock or overclock doesnt make difference
