Performance Lag/Low Framerate issue
« on: 30 July 2015, 13:46:07 »
Recently one of the multiplayer saves I play has encountered a huge FPS lag issue, where the framerate starts tanking down to <4FPS, then back up to ~30FPS, only to drop back to <4FPS (instantly and repeatedly), resulting in an almost unplayable, lag/stutter/erratic framerate (see video for demonstration)
PS: Usually we (myself + other clients) have 60-90 FPS

Noteworthy things:
-Lag issue starts around ~5:30am and continues until ~19:30pm (in-game), but between that, game runs perfectly fine
-Using patch 4.211 (that's 4.21 + 4.211 hotfix)
-Map is Fichtenhain and surround area (Hafenstaader, Klippingen, Fichtenhain)
-This is the first time we've encountered this, having played hundreds of saves, on pretty much all the maps
-Only started happening 6 turns in
-When we do a new fresh start, on the same map, there is no issue
-None of us had abnormal CPU Usage or Memory Usage or Disk Usage when checking Task Manager (all below 50%)

Things we have tried (but didn't work):
-Slowing game speed/pace to "Very Slow" for a while, then back to Normal
-Sharing save-file to clients, and re-hosting
-Updating graphics drivers
-Changing "DisableLogging = 0" to "DisableLogging = 1" in the config.ini file
-Deleting all the other save files in the "savegame" folder

I am open to suggestions, please let me know if you want more information on the matter.

Here is a video to demonstrate the Performance issue:

Thanks in advance

Does one of the human players have control of the cityguards?

In my singleplayer games, this is the major cause of lag +- crashes

No, in fact the only political seat taken by a Human player is the Executioner.

*EDIT*
And the issue started before any Human had a political seat of office.
