Ps4 pro supersampling performance issues

26 replies 971 views Edited Feb 2, 2017
Please add an option for players with ps4 pro who play on a 1080p display to turn off supersampling. The game runsure well 95% of the time but when there's a lot going on the frame rate dips belown 20 fps. Two examples of this are when placing hellfire napalm, or against bugs when the tenticle creature uses its testicles, the game becomes extremEly choppy and the game looks muddy. I recently bought a ps4 pro and it's running worse that my original ps4 did! Please add an option to disable supersampling.

No other game that I own underperforms like this. I've resorted to changing my ps4 settings to 720 just so the game can run smoothly. Please patch this.

I've not played the game in a wee while so I must have missed some freaky DLC.

 

Anyway, how does the game look on the Pro? Aside from those issues.

I play on 1080 display. Its got a muddy/blendy look to the graphics. I wouldn't mind it if the performance would keep up. But the loss in frames is not worth the improvement

@JoeJoeMcTwist  Sounds like what happens on PC when playing Helldivers on a laptop (sensitive to gettting framerate drops when Hellfire is used).

 

It is a little strange to read that the stronger PS4 Pro is underperforming while on PC it is the weaker gaming machines that suffer performance issues. Thanks for coming here to report the issue. I will eventually be getting a 4k PS4 (whatever they do after the current Pro), so it would be good if my favorite game for PS4 is sorted out before I do Robot Embarassed

Glad to see people are reading the forums. I hope the message gets to Arrowhead developers. I looked up this supersampling issue. It has happened in other games aswell like Shadow of Mordor and The Last of Us: Remastered. Both of those games were fixed by adding an options for 1080p displays. You can choose between better graphics (Supersampling) or better performance (standard 1080p display). Arrowhead developers, can you please patch this?

@JoeJoeMcTwist  The Arrowhead people are pretty good about monitoring the threads and especially the Support Thread because they are subscribed to that and get notification emails while a new post like the one you made would only cross their eyes when they do their routine look and see on other posts / discussions.

Hey ForeverAPeon, It's been 3 months since the game was patched, and the framerate issue on PS4 Pros is still ongoing. Other games that had similar issues were patched with an option to select standard 1080p (no resolution upscaling) for better performance. 

 

Is this problem being worked on? If yes, do you have a timeframe of when it will be fixed?

I don't have any updates for you regarding this and no timeframe Smiley Sad It depends on our studio's resources and when/where they can be allocated. I can poke the devs again to see if I can get a confirmed answer on whether it will be worked on.
