Unhappy fps with .17

Hey all,

I've downloaded this new version and still I'm suffering from what I consider insane fps problems. Inside of raids, be it totc, icc or voa (and outside dalaran) I get 5-20 average FPS, basically unplayable as my screen is freezing up intermittently. Outside of these locations, 50+ FPS (screen's below).

I've tried turning a few things off (moving pic's of my car in bar etc). But to no avail. I turned nui off completely and reverted back to Shadow unitframes and bartender 4.... needless to say, when fighting sindragosa with out 25 man.. up went my FPS to 50+

I really enjoy NUI++ and tbh don't want to switch back, but unless I can fix this problem with the FPS I'm going to have to...

I've tried a complete reinstall (deleted everything but interface folder) - no joy
I've tried turning all video settings down to Low - no joy.

Any idea what's causing this ???

I use the nui_infopannel_dualstats to display omen and recount together. Other addons include Atlas Loot and DBM.

There have been a host of posts on this subject and some of them very recently. Do a quick forum search for "FPS leak" and you should find them.

Hiya,

I've been reading through them and found the following so far.

Turning windows mode off (full screen) improves FPS.
Clearing out WTF(renamed to .old) and restarted wow, all great until you like above move back to windowed mode.

I run 1900x1200, 60hz.. vertical sync on or off doesn't change anything. I look forward to a fix. GL Scott

After some more raiding last night, I saw recount taking up 30-50mb of memory. I Turned global data collection off and the game became at least some what more playable. Still low FPS, but at least the screen wasn't freezing up.

Also tried turning the vertical sync off, no help. Playing full screen, no visible help.. Yes FPS is way up in full screen, but not during raids.

Hope this helps.

Have you tried switching to the solo or party unit frame panel during the fights? If you're not a healer, you don't really need to see everyone's unit frames in the fight. It's a not a "fix" to the problem, but it is a workaround until I can get nUI6 out.

Yep tried that, didn't see any noticeable difference.
I only have the problem in raids, just did a 5 man with Recount turned on.. 70 fps and no problems (even with 5 man group selection on)

thanks for the help Scott and GL with version 6
