One of the comments above implied the problem may be because of distance from server, since my specs look fine.
Now you say it’s not due to the distance from server…
I usually play on the mid-range quality setting, and get consistent 60-70 FPS. Sometimes it drops to 40 or below and then I either give it a few minutes or I lower the setting temporarilly which seems to fix the issue.
But this has no effects on pixelization and discoloration. That happens in any quality setting. The FPS drop happens only rarely and is managable. The discoloration is a persistent and ubiqtious problem.
The Liquidsky experience is usually very smooth for me. I have very fast internet and get high FPS across the board.
But the discoloration just ruins it.
It’s more than a visual eye-sore, it affects gameplay in a big way, especially in action games, where you have to react fast and be aware of what’s happening around you.
I’m not a tech-hound. I know my basic stuff. If I was a tech hound, I would build my own gaming PC and would not require cloud gaming. LS is a service that is supposed to be for people who just want to play high-end games on their basic PC’s without worrying too much about tech stuff. But instead of hardware/software issues, we just have internet/streaming/bandwidth issues. If I am spending my time with tech issues instead of using the service, then what is the point…
Frankly, I am dissappointed this has been going on for months and there is no good solution to this problem. Even just reducing it by 50% would be great step forward.
P.S: How do you take snapshots of the screen in LS during a game? I want to post some images here so you can see how bad it is.
