Hello! So I have issues I've not had before, granted I had a pause from playing Freespace Open for 6 - 12 months but I still have the same machine.
Currently I'm enjoying my first playthrough of Between The Ashes, but I have some SERIOUS framerate issues.
At the start of most missions, I sit steadily between 100-120 fps (the cap is also at 120) and when the fighting gets medium - heavy, it can drop as low as to 10 fps, and not stuttering, consistently. A few times the game can stutter as well, freezeframe or drop really low, this usually happens when I'm up close to fighters or capital ships, usually it doesn't tho.
I don't know why, I got the default settings on I believe on Knossos. I'll write down my specs here.
CPU: Intel Core i7 4770k (max clock at 4.4 GHz)
GPU: MSI Geforce 970 4GB
RAM: 8GB 2133Mhz
SSD: Samsung EVO 850 sata
Monitor: Acer 27" 1440p 144hz
