Ever since I got this game, I haven’t played it much due to the terrible stuttering I get in the Plaza. This stuttering happens only in the Plaza and the related areas, which is a very large area, so most of the game is unplayable for me. I can play all the minigames / activities, go in my condo, and walk around in the minigame matchmaking area. I meet the minimum requirements, and this issue has persisted throughout a windows upgrade from 7 to 10. Both of these operating systems are 64 bit. I also have the required amount of ram and vram. Any help or a solution to this issue? This issue persists even when in the casino, and I don’t think the Plaza is even rendered when you enter / are in the casino.
Using W10’s game mode does not affect anything. I do not use any screen recorders typically, and CPU usage never exceeds 60-75%. I don’t think it has to do with my video card because if I run 1% resolution scaling, the stuttering persists, even though MSI afterburner says my GPU usage is 85ish% (as opposed to the 99% it’s normally at) My RAM usage never exceeds about 3500 MB out of the 4GB I have. Adjusting screen resolution changes nothing besides general FPS (between the stutters)
Is there something I can do to resolve this issue?
