Others feel the same pain too. The work around for this does not exist, yet. It will, soon. When I am able to construct my own server for Sandstorm, I will be back to this game, again. In the mean time, I play Insurgency on my own server with my own group of people. I understand it's difficult to be patient, when you're getting hosed constantly. Hang in there...change is coming soon.
Well, good you guys mentioned your specs...Thank You. I've played SS about an hour or so...and I'll start with my spec's: I7 4790K @4.8ghz....GTX 770 w4gig of vram...16 gig of 2400 RAM...Win7 Pro...ISP at 100 down and 8 up.
Low FPS and glitchy play on this end too. Was around 30 FPS + or - 10 FPS here and there. I went back into settings, gritted my teeth, turned every thing down to 'Low'....then played about 15 mins and FPS had gone up to middle 50's low 60's and game was then playable....not bragging playable, but do able.
I never got more than 15 mins of playtime without game crashing. I did notice, that in the Insurgency 2014, my cpu useage has always been around 84% and gpu core load useage at 99%. In Sandstorm, Cpu at 54% and Gpu core load at 100% and what struck me as really interesting was GPU memory useage was at 99.9%. I never used more than 60% of my gpu memory in Insurgency.
I would sure be interested if somebody running a 1080Ti on a I7 overclocked could/would report their experiences...?
