After playing some more games I have to admit - it helps quite a bit - but there are still some problems on full 64 player frontline servers in close combat.

So right now these changes helped me a lot...

  • Change game process priority to "high"
  • Disable Steam Overlay
  • Change all graphics options to off/low

Actually I play with textures "ultra" and antialiasing "FXAA" so the game looks at least a little bit better.

What makes me wonder... according to task manager CPU and GPU usage hardly ever increase past 50% but the FPS still suffer heavily the more players are on the battlefield. I guess we will have to wait for the developers to improve performance.

I don't know if this will help with your problem but maybe other people with low fps or performance issues in frontline mode will find this information useful.

My computer isn't that good and the CPU is actually slightly below the minimum requirements (i5 4570) but I can play Horde mode with most settings on/ultra without any problem with 6 players and 60 enemies on screen. Frontline mode on the other hand... felt like a picture show (probably very low fps) everywhere all the time no matter where I look (even without any players visible). I changed all settings to off/low - still the same. Nothing changed. Exactly as bad as everything on/ultra. It got slightly better when I changed the game process priority to "high" in windows. So it might actually be the CPU usage. But what finally "fixed" my problem: I disabled Steam Overlay and Streaming options. With everything off/low and Steam Overlay disabled the game runs perfectly smooth. As my graphics card is pretty good (compared to the other hardware) I started enabling graphic options to find a decent balance and avoid all settings that use too much CPU power.

Morhau is just a big game of "House".

WHAT'S THIS STICKY STUFF ON ME

Just as Havoc is about to silence his lover with a kiss, their combined passion drowning out the loud shitposting occurring in the Founder's Guild thread, Lazy crashes through the wall.

Covered in a fine, golden powder of cheeto dust and wall plaster, Lazy appears to be having an autistic episode. His massive, rotund body capers though Havoc's bedroom without restraint, accidentally crushing Sammy in the process.

As Havoc cries out in shock and anguish at the sudden loss of his lover, he is cut off brutally by Lazy, who vomits sticky globs of cheetos all over his head, blocking his airways. As Havoc collapses to the ground, Lazy begins to emit a high pitched keening.

Gaymer can be seen in the distance, vigorously masturbating over the grisly scene as he watches through the hole in the wall.

Sammy leans over the back of Havoc's chair, wrapping his arms around his lover's neck possessively.

"Whatr'ya doing with the Founder's Guild?" he asks in a sultry, playful whisper, gently stirring the hairs on the back of Havoc's thick, masculine neck. Havoc reflexively shivered at the touch and the raw Britishness of Sammy's voice.

uhh im too lazy to finish this tbh

And Ranten.

The contest was derailed, thanks to you, so I just gave out first prize to Emerald who didn't want it due to privacy, so I offered him credit if he ever wanted a steam game under $30.

But ever since then you've been shitposting about the second contest. Fuck off.

Bazuso would greatly help with historical accuracy and immersion in the time period of the game. Please help to make these dreams of ours a reality.

I agree. Bazuso is a very key person in history and should be added to the game.

Nah, he said we can bend the rules for comedic purposes. Now he just needs to add a bits of lol's and emojis whenever he yells niggers and it'll be alright :p
