I have been experiencing extreme frame rate drops out of no where in Chiv. I’m not sure what’s causing it, I was going to attribute it to my HDD being slightly older than 4 years now and maybe shitting the bed. However these micro / macrostutters that occur in Chiv are not happening in Battlefield 4, Hardline, Insurgency, Dota 2, Metro Last Light, Civ V, Evolve or any other game I own both demanding and non-demanding. I wish we had a stat graph to better observe what was being impacted on the system (CPU / GPU performance graphs).
For reference my system specs are the following:
cpu: i7-4770k 3.6 ghz
memory: 8 gb ram
gpu: GTX 780 4gb
I run chiv on a regular HDD that’s slightly old. I’ll be replacing it soon to see if that changes anything.
Turn off Vignette by going to:

Then into UDKSettings.ini and look for EnableVignette=TRUE and change it to EnableVignette=FALSE. Then go to UDKEngine.ini in the same folder and you’ll find these settings:
Change them to:
Also turn ragdolls off in game.
