FPS drops and lag since ROM

My FPS has been consistently much lower since I installed ROM. It used to be about 100-150 but now it’s usually about 30-40, 50 if I’m lucky. And it often dips below 20. Is this happening to anyone else?

    I've noticed some lag at times too. To be honest I was expecting a bit of lag after downloading more content.

    I noticed lags too. I think that the GP has a performance problem - a memory leak or something like this. Hope they will fix it soon.

    I’ve been reading that many are having this issue, including the crash in CAS when SC are doing their animation. I’ve, knock on wood, thankfully not had any issues. I hope they provide a hotfix soon for those affected. No reason to make them a wait a month to play a game they bought.

    I've been having lag issues since the patch/free update before RoM. It's pretty annoying.
  • LivinityLivinity Posts: 446 Member
    Same here! I even cleaned most of my few mods, lowered my settings and it's still running worse than before, it makes no sense. I'm convinced it's some bug in the game.

    I can't seem to duplicate this issue. Might have to look into this myself too... but AFAIK I have no significant drops. What are your specs, OP?
  • RobinGreenthumbRobinGreenthumb Posts: 227 Member
    Yeah, I’ve been having the issue and whooo boy it’s annoying. I was one of the people who didn’t have any issues with Island Living (that world ran GREAT for me), but RoM has given me some pretty bad lag here and there.

    I’m actually really surprised you are having issues with this build. Are all your drivers up to date?

    I'm not having an issue with frame rate, but my game does seem to hang more - just for a second or two. I'm sure it's happened before, but it was fairly regular when I was playing last night.
  • JoBass24usJoBass24us Posts: 1,540 Member
    @JoBass24us so am I lol. I believe they are. I’ll check when I’m next on.

    Yeah, double check. A sound driver that’s out of date could be enough to cause issues. There’s really no reason for you to be having issues, you out spec the game by a lot. Should be smooth sailings.
    Do you run cc or mods? If so, check them too. Could be a bug within the game that is just acting up on your system. Hopefully EA can replicate and fix.

    That is really strange especially since your build is really good.

    I would probably check task manager when it is lagging and see if it is a memory leak issue. You can tell it is if the sims4 are using loads of RAM.

    They need to start testing the pack with ALL the other packs in the game too. The way packs are constantly on sale and the bundle ability means more people are going to own more packs.

    Why must we suffer for installing more packs?

    I thought it was just around here, I put a new lot in the realm and it is quite large, this unbearably legacy 15 fps out there. I was surprised but thought it was because of the lot. but apparently it may not be

    Hmm ok I started a new save and I’m getting 160-170fps (with a sim living in the same house and everything) so I guess my low FPS problem in my main save wasn’t caused by ROM.

    I wonder what is causing it :(

    Any suggestions on what could cause low FPS in one specific save?
  • MaggieMarleyMaggieMarley Posts: 2,931 Member
    I don’t know what was off yesterday but whatever it was seems fixed now. I ‘only’ played ROM for 2 hours yesterday and that was when I encountered the lag and low FPS. My FPS is about 100-120 in my main save this evening so I guess it fixed itself. Hopefully it stays that way!
  • JeanJean Posts: 1,160 Member
    Yeah, I was about to say that your build is pretty good. So that's not it.

    I’ve had that happen to me in other games. One day it’s fine then I’ll have a laggy experience. Mainly on MMO which I attribute to ping issues and my internet having hiccups.

    As far as the sims it could have just be a background task you didn’t know was running or a plain bad day. I’m glad it’s all settled now and that you can enjoy your game.

    If it's like this on PC imagine how it will be on consoles.

    @MidnightAura You had asked me about performance issues and I said I hadn't notice anything.

    Actually, I did come to think of it. I thought it was just from playing for 9 hours straight though, which it could be lol.

    But I am experiencing most of these issues.

    I noticed it yesterday when I first loaded the pack. It was stuttering and really laggy in CAS too. But when I exited and went back in later it was totally fine, even had added all my CC back in. Sometimes when I first load the game after a big update or a new pack it does this.
