Game stutters (100 points)

A Forum Thread for The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

Bit of a problem 100 points if you can sort the problem out.

I'v just bought oiblivion:game of the year edition with both exspansion packs and im having some trouble the game is stuttering a bit when i walk around, i play it maxed out with a not so good fps of about 35-75 but this also happens to me on low. so what could be the problem?

    Maybe try some optimization mods ( dunno if it helps, since your computer should run the game good without such mods.)

  • I'm sorry to tell you this but you just started the apocalypse. In other more serious news. Do you have V Sync on or off? Somehow nVidia cards can have a random problem with V Sync. You will have to turn it off in the menu that comes up before you start the game. If it's off try to turn it on. Have you played with the Oblivion.ini file located in My Documents\My Games\Oblivion? The game can go instable if you do that. If you haven't played with it, try deleting it anyway and the game will make a new one. If you've changed key bindings they will be reset though.

    But the number of the new patch is the same as the number on the bottom left of the main menu? i bought the game of the year edition with SHIVERING ISLES and NIGHTS OF THE NINE so could this have been all updated from the install?

  • Yes it must have been like that. Otherwise you would be installing an update right now.

    I'd suggest more Ram if you have vista than there is already a gig gone leaving you with 1 gig. also check how many processes you have running. could have quite a bit that can hog up a lot of cpu.

    You're running Vista, you might want to try disabling Aero before running the game. If it helps and you don't want to do that every time, go to the oblivion.exe (not the launcher) and right click > properties. Under the compatibility tab, check "Disable Visual Themes" and "Hide Desktop Composition" or something similar. I'm not sure.

    OK. sounds to me like an Exe error, sometimes the transfer isn't %100 correct. so try and re-install it. also, see if you mods are conflicting with the expansion packs.

    Studdering? That might be a texture error. Some systems get a studdering issue when the textures are too complex/detailed/too great in number in a single frame. Turn down your texture/LOD settings. Hope that helps.

    Oblivion loads the game in cut up chunks as you move around, and dumps them as you travel further away. Go to tweakguides and check around online for a set of .ini tweaks that will make it run a lot smoother on a quadcore with a lot of ram.
