DESCRIBE THE ISSUE IN DETAIL (below). LIMIT TO ONE BUG PER THREAD.
In Full-screen mode I experience severe stuttering and a large FPS drop. In Windowed mode the game runs smoothly without stutter and the fps matches my monitors refresh rate. Additionally, In Full-screen mode when I click on task manager the game reaches 165fps and the utilization of my gpu reaches 45%. In contrast, when I click back on the game the fps drops back to 60-70~ and my gpu utilization falls to 10% (task manager shows due to using the option always on top).
FREQUENCY OF ISSUE
- 100% of the time / matches I play (ALWAYS)
Here’s the steps to reproduce the issue:
- Enter 1v1 Skirmish against AI.
- Change graphic setting Full screen > Windowed
- Open Task Manager and click between the task manager and the game.
I would expect that while running AOE in full-screen mode the game would utilize my gpu as it does in windowed mode in a similar manner.
The different peaks on the utilization graph shows when I click on the task manager and on the game.
Scrolling around the map best highlights this issue. But you can see the stuttering when just watching the animation of a unit performing an action.
