  • Problems with viewdemo

    Anybody else have problems using viewdemo when playing back demos? Basically whenever I do it the fps is always really low and it stutters a lot the whole demo. But whenever I use playdemo, everything works like normal.

    It's to bad cause I'd love to use the pause and fast forward function of it.

    Re: Problems with viewdemo

    Someone cooler than me will have to give you the "technical why," but viewdemo plays the demo while it's still loading. On my machine, the first few minutes are choppy, but that's all it takes to load the demo.

    Once the demo is fully-loaded, performance is identical to typical in-game performance.

    If it really does take your machine the entire playtime of the demo to actually and fully load the demo, then watching it with viewdemo will be choppy the entire time. Even if that is the case, though, viewdemoing it again immediately afterward will result in it being played smoothly, as it's already loaded and ready to go.

Nightly I am amazed at the personalities and gaming talent.

      I usually just pause the demo and wait for it to fully load.

        That would explain it, thanks fellas.
