Hello dear Avorion community,

I'm writing those lines because i can't find the problem by myself.

I have constantly low fps during gameplay, ranging from 35-25 in an empty sector to 25 and lower in a more crowded area. As you can imagine, if something happens in a sector, it's not unusal to drop into one digit fps.

I tried a lot of things to get this fixed:

- NVidia: Open Nvidia Control Panel Select Manage 3D-Settings from the list on the left Select Program Settings Pick Avorion from the list of programs or select the executable from your steam install directory: <Steam install>/SteamApps/common/Avorion/bin/Aviorion.exe Select it to always use the dedicated graphics card from the dropdown menu

Only thing that made some difference, gave me all around 5 fps, yay


This a post, which describes the addend of registry entries for Nvdidia cards, who are installed with CPU graphic chips, which didn't help

Bottom left corner, there's a search bar. Type 'graphics settings' and you'll be able to change whether programs use the one Windows recommends, power saving (usually your integrated GPU) or performance (other graphics card your PC has.

Neither hardware scheduling, nor enlisting avorion.exe as high performance on GPU brought an increase

So best course of action is to go to minimum settings, load the galaxy....then restart the game with everything maxed out and load the galaxy.

It did not increase my fps

Miscellaneous tweaks:

- set priority up in task manager,

- changed CPU assignments,

-disabled Intel Graphics HD 530,

-enabled XMS RAM profile

-changed borderless, fullscreen, windowed mode,

-a lot of setups in graphic settings in game (vsync on/off etc.) {comment: fps are nearly same with lowest and highest possible settings!},

- Flash-upgrade BIOS

I also monitored the system specs during starting sector gameplay:
CPU:around 50-60%, with some 60%+ peaks
RAM: 8-10 GB Usage (with browser in background)
GPU: 10-30% usage, which i mostly thaught is the culprit

I uploaded the last clientlog, which is the mere startup of an only start sector secured single player game. Please remember, i don't have a fps drop during gameplay (after some time) or giant exploered galaxy maps, it's from the get go.

Here is a pastebin with shortening multiple entries: https://pastebin.com/cXGytu9U

Computer specs are:

OS: Windows 10 home
CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700 CPU @ 3.40GHz
RAM: 16 GB
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB
Game installed on SSD drive

Edit says, that i have posted my problem and this thread in the Reddit Avorion forums. https://www.reddit.com/r/avorion/comments/s7l791/low_fps/


Thanks in advance

Friends had the same problem. Try downloading the NVIDIA Studio Driver (not the Game Ready).  It may be some of the optimizations NVIDIA does for games doesn't work well with the Avorion engine.

I have the same issue as OP - just posted on Steam forum too.

Same specs, but with GTX 1080.

I am a new player, new install, new game - 10-20 fps in game, no matter what settings or game res I have set.

I can't get more than a 1 minute into the tutorial as the low fps just kills me 😞

Please Devs help a guy out!

I successfully installed the Studio driver, but there was'nt an increase in performance. Thanks for the help though.
