Hey guys! So it’s been a little while. I’ve been obsessing over Ark lately(might even borderline unhealthy ) and all of a sudden my Ark has been having a weird issue. My game loads in and I get like 120 fps, then over the course of about 20 minutes, my FPS slowly degrades to about 25 fps, then it freezes and stutters. Then once it recovers, the fps shoots back up to 120. Rinse and repeat. Has anyone else experienced this?
Things I’ve tried:
Update video drivers
Move it off hard drive to a different drive
Validate game files
Adjust Nvidia settings
Put Ark in full screen and windowed
Play ark in dx10 and normal
I’m lost as I don’t know what causes it. It kind of feels like the driver is crashing, but recovers before the game closes. It hangs anywhere from 10 seconds to indefinite and I have to close the game manually.
I do run a dedicated server in my own house, so I have local access to it. Could this be a server setting? Or is it GPU related? Any help would be greatly appreciated. As you can imagine this is extremely annoying. Thanks everyone!
