Fix found for FPS drops. ( worked in 2 solo games so far)

★★★ Novice

Fix:

 

 

1. start origin.

2. right click bf4.

3. click properties.

4. make the game run in x86 mode. - not 64bit.

5. start bf4, join server.  Game should run with high fps - no more dropping to 3 or 4 fps every 5 seconds.

 

 

Seemingly, the 64bit version, is broken. Memory leak.

 

 

 

- This could be a random chance type thing, so I will repost again shortly - to confirm, or similar.

Yup, this works. No more lag.

 

Tested on a 32 man server with fully destructed map - lowest fps drop was @ 51 fps, from 70 fps during a multiple explosion of a building.

 

 

 

gtx560 - nvidia -  running on ultra settings(low occlusion)(medium/high post processing) @ 1920 x 1080p - with 70fps+ 

intel i7 2600k.

windows 7 home premium.

4gb ram.

3 map changes later, the frame dopping has returned.

 

My computer usage is back at 95% or similar, and so is my ram....

 

 

I exited the game, and went to a different server.

 

Lag still persists.

 

I will now restart the pc - and try again.

~ It worked for a little while though

After a restart - the game runs fine with no lag once again.

 

- I have a feeling that after 3 or so map changes, the fps drops will come back.

 

 

So - to sum it up -  running the game in x86 mode - is more stable - but still very bad.
