NBA2K16 PC Stuttering - Fix for nvidia GPU's <-3rd patch is the name of the FIX

Postby jay-r on Sat Sep 26, 2015 2:36 pm

Here's the latest nvidia control panel and in game settings with which I have stutter-less nba 2k16 pc game. The latest trick that solved the choppiness/stuttering for in between quarter highlights and some cutscenes and intro's was Vsync settings ("Use the 3d application setting" in nvidia control panel and On for vsync and dynamic vsync in game)

For further experiments with frame count amount, type of anti-aliasing and so on make sure you have the maximum amount of options in nvidia control set to "Use the 3d application setting" and then play around with the in game settings. To put it in simple words - the game code "dislikes" outside settings -> it seems like the game was tested on a gpu/driver with all settings set to off and/or to "controlled by 3d app", since magic happens if you are not forcing things.

Edit after 2nd patch in respect of the Vsync/Dynamic Vsync saga:
With Vsync On, Dynamic Vsync On cutscenes and replays are limited @30fps, but then again in between quarter highlights are fluid.
However with Vsync On, and Dynamic Vsync Off cutscenes and replays are limited @60fps and look much better than before and game is much more fluid with Dynamic Vsync Off, however with Dynamic Vsync Off, in between quarter highlights are back the slideshow mode (choppy and stuttering all the way), but since I don't care so much for the in between quarter highlights I am leaving Vsync On and Dynamic Vsync Off
.


Edit after 3d patch
After the latest (3rd) patch the game runs smooth as butter with all settings maxed out and there are no tricks to be applied if you run the game on a decent cpu/gpu, except for the Vsynd and Dynamic Vsync thing (that trick still is necessary :D -> Vsync On, Dynamic Off to get 60FPS even in replays).
The latest patch has solved stuttering at the beginning of the game when random players are being shown and the now with Vsync On, Dynamic Vsync on in between quarter highlights run @60FPS (Y) (no more slideshows or limitation of 30fps) Already after the 2nd patch and not broken in this latest patch (3rd patch) the buffer count setting is fixed, so that will be basically the only change I am making (up to 2nd/3rd patch buffer count @3 would not work well with Vsync On/Dynamic vsync Off, but now @3 it works as it should (Y)

Worked for me too for the gameplay part, some cutscenes still stutter, random ones at the beginning of the game or during timeouts. Also when the ball is in transition, there is a frame drop, no matter the speed of the transition. No stutter though.

After applying these settings I however only notice stuttering efects in between quarters when highlights are being shown. During halftime there's no stuttering in highlight videos.

Tried this tweak, but for me don't work.

The cutscenes have crazy stuttering, but also for gameplay part I have stuttering.

Definitely going to need an optimization patch among other things. I have an Nvidia Titan X and still get occasional fps drops.

I agree. I aslo have a Asus GTX titan X and is seeing frame rate drops. Hopefully 2k release a patch for this next week.

Made an update on the settings in the first post. Newest trick that at least in my case improves fluidity during the gameplay is supersample settings. For some strange reason from today in game Supersample setting made by game stuck at the first screen (its just would not boot any further). So I changed it to 0 in VideoSettings.cfg and forced supersample in nvidia control panel to x8 + I even enabled DSR @1,20x with 33% smoothness and the gameplay still is stutterless. Changing the Supersample to 0 in game also solved the issue of passing icons being scatter around the screen. (Y)

Oh there is something new, in the config file, the supersample is set to 0. In game though, the supersample is set to 1. If I set it to 2 or 3, then save the settings, it saves just fine. If I set it to 0, save, and then come back to the video settings, the supersample is again set on 1

Same here, I think that V-Sync can't be on and superslame 0 at the same time.

Edit: Hmm, maybe it doesnt, I tried everything, its 0 in the file, when i put it 0 in the game, and come back to settings it istant change to 0. :x Tried with and without read on.

Finally, after going back and forth with all sorts of variations with in game and nvidia control panel settings I now how stutter-less nba 2k16 pc game (Y) Updated the first post with latest settings and findings.

I hate Mondays, the stuttering effects in between quarters when highlights are being shown are gone now (Y)

Postby I Hate Mondays on Tue Oct 06, 2015 9:47 pm

Oh thanks man. Can't wait to try these. Will come back for feedback.

Edit: I can see a big difference indeed. The feeling that the players' movements during cutscenes were "dragged" is gone. The new fix doesn't solve everything for me though. There are still some FPS drops during some cutscenes and the usual fps drops in-game when a team is approaching the other's team 3 point circle.

Unless 2k patches it somehow its best we can do. Since with this latest mix of settings cutscenes have constant 30fps and gameplay has 60fps, so the fps drops/stutterness that you might notice are only due to the fact that the game is constantly changing from 60 to 30, from 30 to 60, so its rather explainable. Limting/setting off after basket cuts should improve overall expierence.

Just found this thread after starting my own: viewtopic.php?f=163&t=99931

I'm not tech savvy enough to play with my settings and understand what to change so I tried the above NVIDIA settings. Could someone lend a hand by posting both the NVIDIA Control Panel Settings I should use as well as the in-game ones. Right now, my FPS during gameplay is about 40. Is there anyway to improve and play at high settings?? Should I consider changing my GPU (if it's even possible)?

I noticed that if I play on similar settings that worked for my system on NBA 2k15 I can get the frame rate to be less choppy by switching the camera angle.

On Skybox and on 2K I experience the least lag. On Broadcast during the pan motion after a change of possession is where I experience the most lag. I have an Nvidia 2GB 660t video card with an i7 processor from 2011 and 12GB of memoire

I don't know what's going on. Right now I have pretty decent settings. Almost everything is ok [60FPS during games etc]. There is only one huge problem. Player movement is just horrible! No speed, no acceleration, physics are slow as hell. When I compare this to gameplays on YT, it's totally different game. Player movement on PS4 is nice and smooth (like in NBA 2K15).

Try to disactivate windows side bar and windows desktop image background to only one image. Meaning just put only one image.
This made my game experience more fun...try it!

Could You please specify that little bit more? I don't have any sidebars on my desktop and what do You mean by "windows desktop image background to only one imag"? I also don't have any wallpapers ;d

Sorry for my english. Im using windows 7. Yes the wall paper, just put only one image. Because when I put 5 or 6 image and everytime it changes the background it was stuttering. Also look at the processes that fluctuates and the cpu power going up at idle. If the cpu power fluctuates in idle that means the game will stutter I think...
Im using also speedfan to observe it....maybe someone will explain this thing...

Later today I will post final game settings and slightly updated nvidia control panel settings that I use and with which the game runs 60fps constantly with no frame drops. So if you will experience any lag/stutter with them applied you will have to look elsewhere - it will be either due to your gpu/cpu bottleneck or other part of the hardware or even OS issue. Now at least after the 3rd patch I can happily confirm that mid-high-range-pc handles the game great and there are no in-explainable stutters and frame drops, as it was initially after the game was released (Y) . I must also point out that change of anti-viruss (AVAST) settings (added exclusion (steam folder)) also helped me to improve overall game experience (not necessarily the game-play part, but the everything linked to highlights and replays).

First thank's for your answser but i d'ont have any fps drop just the stuttering... and if i put 60hz it's very slow like slow motion. but keep 60hz. but at 100 or 120 or 144 hz perfect no fps drop just stutter. can you put your nvidia panel option... and no problem with other game like gta5.

Right click on the desktop -> NVIDIA Control Panel -> Manage 3D settings

Updated both (nvidiaCP and game settings) settings and included .rar with both of them <-see post #1. In final version (after 3rd patch) pre-rendered frames play no difference, but I still recommend to try out those settings (maximum pre-rendered frames and VR pre-rendered frames) in setups that don't run as smooth as butter, since @1 for both them was problem solver before latest patch. I already noted it but now Vsync On and Buffer count work proproperly, meaning with Vsync On and Buffer count @3 you get the same smooth operation that you would get if you would enforce through Nvidia control panel - no funny stuff as it was pre-patch 3 where tripple buffering was causing stuttering all over the place.

Thanks buddy. So let me get this straight. Do you have Dynamic V-Sync set to on or off ?

Yes. See the game settings.
VSYNC = 1
DYNAMIC_VSYNC = 0

I'm not tech savvy enough to play with my settings and understand what to change so I tried the above NVIDIA settings Could someone lend a hand by posting both the NVIDIA Control Panel Settings I should use as well as the in-game ones. Right now, my FPS during gameplay is about 40. Is there anyway to improve and play at high settings?? Should I consider changing my GPU (if it's even possible)?


Thanks for the help; I didn't see all of your original post because I wasn't logged in when I red it.

One more big favour, could you view my posted thread and provide any help/settings for my rig (found in the linked thread)? I used the NVIDIA setting you provided, and the game is pretty smooth at about 40 fps), but if you could help me tweak things for the better, I'd be really appreciative.

Thanks.

All of them? You are also using AA x8 with Super Sample x8 ? If so, this would be the first thing to lower/disable. Try lowering MAXANISOTROPY / MSAA settings and see how fps improves. Then you can play around with maximum pre-rendered frames and VR pre-rendered frames. Try how the game runs @1 for borth maximum pre-rendered frames and VR pre-rendered frames vs Use 3d application setting and experiment with Buffer count settings in game 1, 2, 3, but its still highly unlikely that the performance will improve on the same hardware, since, as I already said before, after this latest/3rd patch (4,6gb) there are no inexplainable FPS drops or stutters and all video settings work/react to the performance as they are supposed too, so there are no tricks to apply like it was before, where combo Vsync On, Dynamic OFF, buffer count @1 and frame settings @1 in NCP gave you stutterless peformance. The game is basically fixed now and all FPS drops/low FPS/stutters will appear mainly due to lack of gpu/cpu/hardware power to handle it, considering the chosen settings.

MSAA = 0
MAXANISOTROPY = 1

NVCP;
Anisotropic filtering 16x
Antialiasing - Mode Enchance the application setting
Antialiasing - Setting 8x
Maximum pre-rendered frames 1
Texture filtering - Anisotropic sample optimization Off
Texture filtering - Negative LOD bias Clamp
Vertical sync On *since my monitor 1920x1080 @ 60 Hz

RTSS locked 60 FPS

i tested on my GTX 970 + i5-4460 quite smooth even thou look like the antialiasing is not locked by NVCP.
