Ok, I played around with the slider a bit. Seems like it’s slightly better at around 5-8 mbs but it still happens fairly regularly. Any lower than that and the quality isn’t worth it.
When I lower the bitrate there’s less blue/yellow smears and more just extensive loss of pixels. Just pixelation and white patches on the screen.
I also experienced FPS drops along the way. I noticed that when FPS in LS drops to 40-45, it’s equivalent to 20-25 on my PC. The stutter is enormous. So I am guessing 60 fps is actually more like 30.
Honestly I do not understand how this works. You have the presets, for example there’s 14 mbs, 30 fps, but I’m getting 60… but it doesn’t behave like 60. Is it 30? What is the relation there? Am I seeing real data? Do the video settings in the game itself have any meaning at all, or is the only thing that counts is the band width?
So, bottom line, lowering the mbs slide helps a bit, but not significantly. Even lowering to 5 I still had the issue.
I could not find how to do a screen capture in LS, so I just clicked the red thingie and recorded video. But I’ll have to edit it since it was pretty long.
