Carmageddon Reincarnation steam version low fps
#1 Submitted: Mon, 17/04/2017 - 08:34

Hi all,

Just played Carmageddon Max Damage with graphics profile settings on "high". -> 60 FPS
So i went to play Carmageddon Reincarnation (uses the same engine). Put the graphics profile on "high". -> 17 FPS
Weird... low fps even in menu. Changed profile settings to "best performance" -> 17 FPS.

I wonder if the problem for Reincarnation is because the game loads an old config file due to once playing early access.
Is there a way i can reset the configuration?

Since Max Damage version gives perfect perfomance, i copied the config.lua over to the Reincarnation install folder. But this gives no difference in FPS in Reincarnation.
%PROGRAMFILES%\Steam\Steamapps\common\Carmageddon Max Damage\config.lua
%PROGRAMFILES%\Steam\Steamapps\common\Carmageddon_Reincarnation\config.lua

Greets,
P

if cars aren't meant to crash why do they have air bags?

also max damage is just an updated version of reincarnation so why would you want to play reincarnation?

No steam controller connected. I did had a xbox one s bluetooth controller connected. I'll check if it makes a difference.

If it's using Steam's controller mapping interface (e.g. the same API as the Steam Controller uses), which now supports Xbox and PS4 controllers natively now, then that would be the reason for the slow down. I don't know how you would stop it using the interface but disconnecting the controller would be the simplest way to check. The issue was fixed in Max Damage. There's really no reason to play vanilla Reincarnation now anyway.
