My issues with BF4 continue..
On launch, I had the settings on ultra with some drop in frames, then I switched to low expecting perfect frames but actually it got worse, I finally found a happy medium then a few patches and drivers later it started lagging up again..
This time, it's a bit different..
Now, maps take about 5minutes (min.) to load, the game hangs on exit so will need to force close all the time..
I lag in-between motion, be it crouching, aiming, spawning, shooting, running, even in the menus!
It's not my ping or ISP..
I have tried the game on ultra, low, auto, and nVidia recommended settings, neither make an ounce of difference..
I have the latest nVidia patch (344.75) no beta's..
I dont think it's my PC, as I haven't done anything to it since (unless it's overheating/needs de-dusting), I have 212gb free storage on my HDD which is more than enough.
I doubt re-installing BF would do anything..
I have about 49 Chrome tabs open, I know how Chrome leech all resources but I dont think this should be that much of a problem..

Mmm.. Not a fan of beta drivers.. I mean it's beta so there are bound to be some issues right? Also, aren't driver updates for BF4 fixes done and dusted? Updates of latest drivers show compatability fixes for new games like The Crew etc so new drivers wouldn't make a difference for for BF4.. Would it?
I'll try a beta driver see if that changes anything then will check out that link..

Mmm.. well.. There doesn't seem to be any beta drivers available when I checked for updates. So I looked on the nVidia website to manually get the beta drivers but I have the latest driver (344.75).. No point getting an older/older beta driver is there?

Okay.. some improvements following the tips in the link (or maybe because I wasn't logged in to Steam ).. still some frame drops but not too bad.. Tried cranking down the res. scale to 25% but everything was pixelated.. couldnt distinguish anyone from anything.. turned it back up to 100% and turned up some settings to mid/high and seemed to play smoother..

That seems to have worked perfectly!!
Tried it a bit yesterday on a German 32p Rush server and was fine.. Tried it a bit today on our server with 21p and was good.. Ideally would like to test it on our server when it's full but been seeding all day everyday and not so much as a nibble V_V'
Hopefully tomorrow for practice, but so far I think the problem is solved!!!
