Well, for me stuttering stopped after today's patch (build #14, 25/11/2019). Although other performance issue occurred, that stuttering one disappeared. Try the game after the patch and tell us if it worked for you.

I just formatted my PC and installed new Windows 10 v1903. I've then installed Mordhau and sadly I'm having terrible fps drops. I didn't have such problem before formatting.

My PC specs:

  • i5-8600K
  • 16GB 3000 MHz DDR4 RAM
  • nVidia GeForce 1060 GTX 6 GB
  • 512 GB Samsung 960 Evo SSD NVMe drive.

Maps load in less than two seconds. I play on high/ultra settings usually getting up to 100 fps. Although most of the time I'm playing with 75 fps because I've got 75Hz monitor and with enabled V-Sync because I really don't like the tearing.
Fps drops last for two or three seconds. They occur randomly once in three or five minutes. When it happens and I'm in a fight, it usually ends with me being dead or about to.

Drops occur on every map (especially on the new one Fretoria) and on every game mode. They even occur on local match without other human players, so I think it's safe to assume it is not a network issue. They also occur in menu and in character setup, so not only in-game.

I've noticed that the higher graphics settings, the greater and longer fps drop occur. When playing on full server invasion on Fretoria, on high/ultra settings, fps drop could sometimes make the game almost freeze for three seconds. While playing local match on ultra low, fps drops caused really short reduction in gameplay smoothness.

Task manager shows that during fps drop GPU load drops drastically, while CPU load increases (see load screens).

I do not have fps drops in any other game. For the moment I've tried with Witcher 3, PUBG and Minecraft (with mods, texturepacks and shaders, so yeah it's heavy on GPU).

Things I tried and it didn't work:

  • lower game settings to ultra low (hundreds of fps, drops still occur)
  • disabling cloth entirely and then lowering rag dolls to 2 for limit and duration
  • disable V-sync
  • update nVidia drivers, even going backwards to older versions
  • enable Multi-Frame Sampled Anti-Aliasing in nVidia Panel
  • update Windows
  • reinstall the game
  • give high priority on Mordhau process in task manager
  • turn off nVidia ShadowPlay
  • turn off Realtek HD Audio (play on regular, Windows audio source)
  • turn off nVidia High Definition Audio driver
  • add [/script/engine.audiosettings] ENTER bDisableMasterEQ=True in BaseEngine.ini at :\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Mordhau\Engine\Config full post
  • remove dll file from nVidia Aftermath at steamapps\common\Mordhau\Engine\Binaries\ThirdParty\NVIDIA\NVaftermath\Win64
  • add -useallavailablecores do steam launch options

Things I tried and it eased the problem, but didn't solve it:

  • remove all configs at steamapps\common\Mordhau\Mordhau\Config and %localappdata%\Mordhau\Saved\Config\WindowsClient (backup up before, can lead to game crash)

Things I tried and it did work:

  • play the game on headphones connected through front panel audio jack, set channel configuration to 7.1 in Realtek HD Audio Manager, at the same time disabling/removing all other audio sources (in my case, a USB Steel Series dongle)
  • lower EFFECTS VOLUME to 0 in the in game settings menu

Two solutions above that did make in fact the stutter go away entirely, but did not solve the core issue. They are just workarounds and I'm still hoping for a full-scaled fix for this.

I've attached screens from task manager of GPU load when a fps drop occurs. There is a visible GPU load fall.

Any ideas what could be the problem?

I'm operating on Windows 10 Pro N, so it comes without the media stuff. To have it, I remember I did manually install it sometime ago, because of some programs were requiring it to work properly. For example nVidia's GeForce Experience software which comes with an in-game overlay. It too requires Media Pack installed in order to work and now I noticed that the overlay was disabled. It was saying that's because the Media Pack is missing. Most probably update 1903 did in fact uninstall or disable it. So I installed it again, restarted computer and guess what? Everything works now! Maps load in 2 seconds, I swear to god. How is this related to a SSD NVMe drive is just beyond me, but I'm happy I finally got it working.

Oh, and the important thing. I didn't install the update by downloading the installer from Microsoft page as you would think it should be done. Instead, I did it via Windows 10 Settings app, as described here (follow instructions under "how to get this update section"). Somehow installing it via regular installer didn't work for me.

I recently updated my PC to Windows 10 version 1903, which was released 19 may 2019. I honesty was expecting some things to stop working, because it is in Microsoft's custom. Usually it comes to just turning off some services (major Windows updates tend to turn on everything again) like telemetry and other garbage. I spend some time tweaking, but it's worth to have blazing fast PC, not slowed down by anything. And then, after last update (1903) maps in Mordhau started to take very long time to load. Like 15 to 20 seconds, sometimes even half a minute. You'd say "Yeah, that's because you have installed Mordhau on old HDD", but that's not the case here. I have a 500 GB SSD Samsung 960 Evo NVMe which is super fast. I have installed both Windows and Mordhau on it. Before the update, maps tend to load in less than 5 seconds, if the map wasn't changed after the match, even faster. There were even situations when after map change I was honestly the first player on the map (I was checking it on tab). Other PC specifications doesn't really matter because the game itself runs smoothly. I have no other issues.

I didn't format my drive for some time, so I figured that's the additional reason to do it. Maybe it will help - that's what I thought. And now I'm writing this on a PC with freshly formatted SSD drive and just installed Windows. The formatting sadly didn't help. Obviously I have installed current drives for motherboard, drive, graphic card etc. I don't know what more can be done.

My friends with regular SATA 3 SSD drives now load to the game faster than me, which is ridiculous.

Any tips on what could be the problem? Maybe I'm not the only one experiencing this.
