    American Truck Simulator (ETS2) AMD issues unresolved by Developer

    naman

      I really like ATS for some odd reason but it doesnt run good at all on my AMD R9-390.  Others have verified this issue.  Nobody seems to care.  Nvidia users with far less hardware can run full graphics options yet I must turn everything off or too low and even then the game cant get over 40 FPS in any city.

       

      I have spent literally hundreds of hours trying to get this to work using every possible combination of video driver/game settings through multiple iterations of drivers.  Its works but looks like a 640-480- software rendered game of 1993.

       

      Any suggestions?

          Try going to: Crimson > Gaming (tab) > Global Settings > POWER EFFICENCY: OFF

          And enable Graphics Profile: Optimize performance.

           

          This helped me to get rid of stuttering problems and bad FPS in GTA V on my R9 380.

          Hope it helps.

            I just tried the ETS2 game, I get 70fps in a city (London) at 1080p with ultra settings and 40fps at 4K res.  At lowest possible settings I get 170fps at 1080p and 120fps at 4K.

             

            Tested using a R9 390X on Win 10 X64 using the 16.8.2 drivers.  Using i7 6700K with 16GB Ram.

             

            Just to prove it:

                Something is broken in ATS's multi_monitor mode 2 (Triples) with Radeon R9s.  You arent using mode_2 so of course you wont get a similar result. 

                 

                I had a lifetime warranty on my Radeon so went to Best Buy and traded it for a GTX1070 yesterday, costed me $75.  Very smart choice.  All of my issues went away and in 20 minutes.  I was never able to achieve anything close to the same quality as well as consistent FR on the R9, with over 200 hours troubleshooting.  I tried EVERYTHING 5 times except Windows 10 re installs.  That I only did twice...

                 

                I made a mistake buying a Radeon and have learned my lesson, again.  The last good card ATI made was the 9800 All in Wonder, lol.

                    And did you mention you were using that mode previously ? No.  If you are only going to give half the information then you can't expect an issue to be looked into.

                     

                    With 3x 1920 x 1080 monitors and uset r_multimon_mode "2" set in the game config.cfg I am getting 35 - 40fps at maximum game graphics quality and 100fps with the lowest quality settings.  Doesn't seem too bad to me since it's 3x the rendering of a 1080p display.
