New Update Now Live - Stuttering Effect Solved

Hi everyone,

We have noticed a handful of reports from players saying they are experiencing what appears to be a stuttering effect in game. This looks visually like a low frame rate, however the game itself it running at a much higher frame rate.

This issue is caused by a change in how often the physics system updates in the game - this was changed to help optimise the game further on lower end machines, but created a stuttering effect on higher end machines because of the difference between the physics update and the frame rate on screen.

To address this, the physics will now update much quicker in game and should remove stuttering effect.

We have also given the player the ability to further adjust how often this happens with launch options.

However this will make the mouse sensitivity much greater so this may need to be adjusted by the player in game.

Setting Launch Options

  • Open your library and locate Jalopy
  • Right Click on Jalopy and select "Properties"
  • In the general tab, click on "Set Launch Options"
  • type in -fixedTime 0.01
  • This will trigger the physics at 100 times a second (100fps)

We have also adjusted the default launch options for the game.

The game no longer support opengl and DX11 also will be dropped from the default launch options as this was no longer being utilised.

In place of this you will find alternative launch options which are the following:

Play on low spec PC
Play on high spec PC

These options adjust the physics updates to optimise the game for different types of PCs.

If you have any issues or require further support.
Please email our team at support@excalibur-games.com

Thanks,
The Jalopy Team
