Client stutter
Closed, ResolvedPublic


After the latest patch some clients have noticed stuttering. Stuttering occurs at the same time on each client (confirmed with 2 other people on TS). Looks exactly like the problem when we used a time accelerator script in Arma 2 as the client time changes to the changed server time.

Running on SSD. As mentioned before, very similar to using time skip/weather change script in Arma 2.

Yes I'm experiencing this as well with patch 113822.

I believe this might be related to the weather simulation, because this short stutter would appear everytime rain started or stopped. But would continue even when it didn't rain, every 2-3 minutes.

Have the same stuttering since last patch...not even SSD helps ;)

Can confirm this since the latest patch, happens every minute or so, stutter lasts about 2 seconds. Very annoying.

Confirmed on majority of servers I've visited. New to latest patch

Confirmed +1. i7 First-Gen 920 @ 3.2GHZ + GTX 670. Stuttering on any server after patch. Lowering graphics from high to performance settings doing nothing.

Completely stutter free tonight. May be down to individual server settings/hardware?

Same exact problem on UK servers happend simultaneously for me and two friends talking over mumble. Only started since last patch (822)

Confirmed with me and a friend playing at the same time we get it at the same time too

Confirmed with me and two friends, 2 of us nVidia users the other using ATI.

Confirmed on every server I've joined since the patch, ~30 different ones in varying US cities/timezones.

Not even the newest patch fixes this.. Its really annoying

Maybe related to new weather effects?

Disabling clouds in the options makes the problem disappear.

Can confirm, is fairly similar to the same issue in ArmA2, at which point sometimes some clients get kicked and receive a battleye responding kind of error.

Not sure but I dont think I noticed the bug yesterday anymore. But I also disabled the clouds. So maybe my client isnt receiving any weather updates?!

I'm getting this as well on multiple servers. It's just a slight freeze and then continues. lasts just a millisecond but noticeable.

Confirmed this issue as well in all US servers I have played on.

Had this same issue, but ONLY with an installation of SA on an SSD. When re-installed to a normal spin disk, I receive no stutter. The stutter only appears for me when the game is installed on an SSD.

stuttering here aswell, got an SSD aswell.

Same issue here after the patch.

Hello everyone,

Thanks for sending in all your feedback regarding this issue. Can you confirm if the stuttering still occurs? If so, would it be possible for someone to upload a video of the stuttering please?

Thank you in advance,
