Nier: Automata PC performance thread

I guess I'll be picking up the PS4 version then. My 1060 can probably run it as well as my Pro but crashes and bugs are things I really don't want to bother with.
 
hate how my screen goes black after changing every single graphics option.

and yea i have 1080p selected but it clearly isn't...going to see about the GPU settings stuff.
 
its the full screen btw , leave it in window mode and use the borderless gaming it works much better

anyone knows why my ps4 controller doesn't work with this game i thought steam supported it natively.
The steam overlay needs to hook in to the game. So if you've got no overlay, there's the problem. You might need to disable something else that's hooking into the game like RTSS if that's the case.

Just so you guys know, the scenes that segue into gameplay are realtime, just like that first one in the screens above. But they are very small and minimal, right before that is a prerendered cutscene as 2B breaks through the wall and hits the ground, right after she brings out her sword, the scene cuts to real time to make the same seem like its seamlessly transitioning to gameplay
 
1080p with GTX 970, 2xAA. Runs great! I'm feeling some drops but that may be just me. I turned off Ambient Occlusion just in case.

Some weird settings shenanigans when changing the graphics options, where the fullscreen option keeps reverting to Windowed. And Steam's overlay doesn't get properly rescaled when changing resolution. Other than that there hasn't been any real problems, so it gets two thumbs up from me.
 
Running at 40fps-ish on average for me with a (laptop) 1060. My settings aren't even particularly high.
I dont understand how is this possible considering this GPU is better than a 970 and there are users with that one reporting 60FPS at 1080p with High Present.

Something's wrong.

Nevermind, that was only the beginning intro cutscene over the water and not the 2B intro. The rest is prerendered unfortunately.
yeah, figured...pre-rendered scenes are so annoying...i get it must cut down on optimization time to just make a movie file and put it in the game, but stiil

Maybe someone running a 970 can post a picture of in-game action with an OSD up.
 
The cut scenes look awful, even ignoring they are 900p/30 fps. They don't feel like they are even actually 30 FPS. Maybe it's just the jarring switching around, but they feel awful. Feels like something is wrong.
 
Yep, it's running < 1080p for me too even when set to 1080p. Tried a few things. Broken aspect ratio. Screws up my desktop after exiting due to not actually running in 1080p.

So... guess I'll be refunding. What with my new VR setup I was fairly unlikely to play a lot of this right now anyways.
 
I am so sad :(
I think this is a poor port guys. Really. Ok, my specs are not high as expected, at least not the GPU (940m, 2GB), but I'm getting 10fps with graphics options in LOW quality. I can play games like MGSV with medium-low graphics at 40~60fps. Saddly I'll need to refund the game. Im so sad coz I was very hyped to play :(
 
Hmmmmmmm

1440p gtx 780 at minimum settings has the framerate at 30fps

1080p gtx 780 has the game hovers at around 55 fps

Also as soon as I finish the first stage boss. My screen freezes
 
Shame about there being so many prerendered cutscenes. Anyone willing to check what file format they're in? If they're .wmvs or .biks or something, at least I may be able to replace them if outright removing them crashes the game.
 
They weren't kidding with the system requirements this time, it seems. My 660 is far below the 'minimum' spec of a 770, and it runs in the single digits, even with everything on low. If you've got an older GPU like me, you're probably going to want to stay away until you can manage to upgrade.

i5 4670k 3.4ghz
GTX 660 2GB
8GB RAM
Windows 8.1 64-bit
Don't run game in borderless windowed mode, it tanks fps even more.

Yeah they don't look 30fps
I'm tempted to rent the PS4 version to see if it's this bad there

Sorry I dont think you are in a position to evaluate if this is a good port or not. MGSV is arguably the best performing game of the gen for it's graphics and you've got a really weak-ass GPU.

Your fps might not even be a clock problem but rather a VRAM problem. 2GB is really low for 2017 standards.

If someone brought your hype up knowing you've got that GPU it ain't a very good friend, sorry.
