The one thing that will keep me from subscribing to Fallen Earth is the horrific lag I get in cities/outposts.Â Â I do not believe I’m the only one getting it, but from my questions in Help chat and the lack of response it appears that I might be in the minority.Â Whenever I enter a city I am immediately hit with this horrific stuttering and lag.Â I think it could be memory leaks but something else has to be affecting it.Â I know that it’s not a problem on my end because the game doesn’t look good enough to lag like this on my rig and I get amazing FPS anywhere else but cities.Â I’m also noticing that the game is a system resource hog and even more so after I suspect a memory leak has set in.
Aside from a few things I would have done to make the game better, this is my only real complaint with the game.Â I believe the last time it was this bad for me was in SWG when I was bouncing around in Thede.Â It’s bad enough that when I tap an arrow key my character will spin around and have gone several yards in a different direction.Â Trying to conduct business in a town, pick up quests, etc. just becomes downright frustrating. Â Relogging fixes the lag momentarily then it kicks in again.
This will definitely factor into my decision of whether or not I’ll be subscribing.Â I have 6 more days to make up my mind.Â Modern Warfare 2 being just around the corner, my itch to get to 35 in Aion, and other factors will also be weighed.
If any of you have found a fix for this lag please let me know.Â I’ve tried the Nvidia tweaks and the usual tweaks to fix mmo performance that we’ve been passing around for years — none have worked.
