Hunt: Showdown - Video: Verbesserungen im Performance-Patch erklärt

13.04.2018 11:47 Uhr

Für die Early-Access-Version von Hunt: Showdown ist jetzt das angekündigte Performance-Update auf Steam als Patch auf Version 0.179 verfügbar. In diesem Video beantworten die Crytek-Entwickler Chris Auty und Sébastien Laurent vom Hunt-Team und Theodor Mader vom CryEngine-Team einige der häufigsten Fragen der Spieler. Das Video wurde noch vor dem Release des Performance-Patches aufgenommen.

So erklären die Entwickler, warum es zu Rucklern kommt und wie sie dagegen vorgehen wollen. Dabei gehen sie auf Details ein, wie, warum die Hunt die CPU sehr stark, die GPU aber nicht so stark belastet oder warum sie sich eher um eine stabile Bildrate als eine höhere Bildrate kümmern.

Patch-Notes für Hunt: Showdown v0.179


CPU optimization and utilization

Optimized a number of CPU heavy processes within the game that would lead to Hunt being CPU bound (especially on lower end hardware)

Optimized rendering cost when particle effects are filling the screen space

Optimized off-screen particle updates in most cases

Optimized interior lighting volumes significantly

Optimized a number of expensive engine calls (e.g GetWaterLevel)

Reduced particle overdraw when many large particles in view

First round of optimizations on CPU job manager (improves efficiency of thread queues)

Memory optimization

Reduced Hunt’s overall memory footprint

Enabled animation DB streaming to reduce memory usage

Improved object streaming to reduce memory usage

Fixed a memory leak in the AI proximity grid

Reduced memory usage in various Hunt subsystems


Improved dedicated server allocation manager to be more reliable, especially if back end slows down

Upgraded backend technology to pave the way for further improvements to debugging user reported issues (slow response times etc)

Bug fixes

Developer note: In this section we will be using the word “stall” a lot. In these cases, this term is being used to describe one of 3 possibilities – micro stuttering (small freezes that do not crash the client), frame drops and spikes

Fixed a stall when using lanterns for the first time (slight micro stutter when picking up the lantern)

Fixed a stall that could occur when using dark sight for the first time after loading into the match

Fixed a stall that occurred when aiming fuses at the sky

Fixed a number of stalls that could occur due to some shaders being loaded during gameplay. This was especially noticeable when aiming down sights

Fixed a stall that could occur when the banishing phase completed

Fixed a number of invalid file accesses during gameplay which was resulting in some stalls

Reduced stalls that could occur with cloth simulation on hunter clothing

Fixed a number of uncached resources

Fixed a deprecated asset that could cause the game to freeze at Stillwater Bend (or as it has been affectionately called by the community “Crashwater Bend”)

Fixed a bug that would cause the Depth of field to be triggered when others in the match were aiming

Partial fix implemented for some objects not rendering correctly (e.g. large amounts of vegetation missing at the start of the match) **

** Developer Note – We will have a number of fixes coming soon that relate to invisible objects. Keep an eye on future hotfix/patch notes for details.

Known Issues

We are aware of an issue that relates to the audio of gunshots not playing correctly. When this occurred, it would lead to the assumption that your hunter would drop dead without warning. This is currently under investigation and we will provide updates when we have more information

We are aware of some geometry being invisible in certain circumstances (missing walls etc.). We are currently investigating the cause of this and hope to have a resolution soon

In certain cases, when moving or aiming, you may notice objects fading and LOD (level of detail) popping. We have been actively working to resolve this and should be able to address this issue in a subsequent content patch

We are aware of a potentially large stall that can occasionally occur when in game. In some cases this can cause your client (as well as others in the vicinity) to disconnect from the server. We are aware and currently working to resolve this as a priority

We are aware of a FPS drop that can occur when rapidly switching through your inventory or when entering the mini map

We are aware that in some cases, players will not receive the 5 minute warning towards the end of a match
