Hello Delta_44 and thank you for the report.
The 10 fps drop is to be expected due to the map changes that have been introduced in the 0.62 patch. The improved map is not fully optimised yet and we are working on optimisation improvements for upcoming major patches. As for the fps drops while turning, are you using any startup parameters? Can you try to delete the contents of your C:\Users\*username*\Documents\DayZ folder and let us know if that had any effect on the issue? And if the issue still persists, can you try to record a video of the issue for us?

well, thank you for the response! I like providing support for your games! You deserve all!
Anyway, now I start recording and, no, no startup parameters.
10/15 minutes and the video is ready! Hang on!
here you are:
hey now the game is even more laggy. Oh add 5/6 fps more: game dvr doesn't like this game LOL. Good update! I love the new coloration! Ah I'm died lol!

Thank you Delta_44.
Are your video drivers up to date? And by " Oh add 5/6 fps more: game dvr doesn't like this game LOL " do you mean that you have gained 6 fps by disabling the running programs (including xbox dvr)?

My video drivers are up to date. With that statement I meant that game drv with some games does not take any fps while with other games, like DayZ, fps down 5/6 but sometimes 10/15.

Hello Delta_44.
Can you try to change the video memory setting in your video options to either 1024 MB or 2048 MB and let us know if that has any effect on the issue? And if not, can you try to turn off every single program that is running on your computer, then launch dayz and let us know if anything has changed?

I have tried and, no, nothing change. In the stable version the game runs very fine anyway.
After the visual upgrade I started to lose some fps. But I don't think that change has affected too much the framerate.
Sorry for my english

update: With the latest game update the problem is half-resolved... the framerate now is better but still very laggy when turning or in general. And the texture still not loading except when I zoom-in

Hello Delta_44.
The issue with some textures not loading in front of the character is known and scheduled for a fix. As for the frame drops when turning, could you make a video for us again so we can compare it with the previous video you have provided for us?

I'm trying to make the video but... all servers show "Bad version, server rejected connection"... And I checked the option "only matching version" with a tick...
As soon as possible I make the video. Bad english I think, again, LOL!
EDIT: 1 file redownloaded... half I see...
EDIT: Video recorded with the same server as the last video... As you can see (lol the zombie XDXDXD) especially in cities, there are massive fps drops but now the texture load is better. Even the fps is slightly better... remember that game dvr takes 5/6 fps...
I'm uploading the video. The last video has 16 fps on average; now the average fps is 25. Yeah! For better precision, Always look at the steam fps counter...

Thank you Delta_44.
We have checked the video you have provided and when your hardware is taken into account (are you aware that your CPU is below the minimum requirements to run the game? -, it appears that there is not much we can do to improve the performance for you at this moment (Also, it appears that the stuttering issue when turning has pretty much stopped to occur, compared to the original video?). The performance will possibly get better in the future major updates once all the optimisations for the newly added map are in place.
