"twitchy" characters, teleporting, etc.
« on: March 28, 2008, 10:50:11 PM »
If you are experiencing weirdness where your character is playing multiple ambient animations in rapid succession--making it appear as if your character is "twitchy," or your character seems to teleport everytime you try to walk somewhere, it's not lag. You have a multi-core processor with both cores running the game, which puts the game into overdrive. You need to set your game to only run off of one processor.

So to all you guys still haveing the problem, just
change the nwnplayer.ini`s entry:

"Client CPU Affinity=-1" into -> "Client CPU Affinity=0"
you can also set it to: "Client CPU Affinity=1"
doesn`t matter what you choose, the effekt is the same:

Your NWN works nice as it should, if you tab out into
the Windows Taskmanager and look into affinity you`ll
notice that nwnmain.exe will belong to only one of CPU0
or CPU1, depending on what you have entered in the
nwnplayer.ini: "Client CPU Affinity=0" (CPU0) or
"Client CPU Affinity=1" (CPU).

  and... what if you don't have a multi-core processor?

Good question.  Could it also be a really MODERN processor thing?

Unfortunately even if I put "Client CPU Affinity=0" or "Client CPU Affinity=1", it doesn't work well... the lag or "twitch", both in multi and single player mode, still go on.

Probably it's a problem related with new Nvidia Drivers... if I fix it by downloadying old drivers, I'll let you know it. ;)

Just for the case.. Remember to restart NWN after changing them. -.O

Which you probably knew, but just for making sure.

:lol:

Probably I've fixed rightly the Nvidia's settings and now the framerate seems to be acceptable... it still twitches but very rarely...

So, if Ezra wish... Augustus will come back.  ;)

change value to -1 if you're on an i7 or quad core. :)

works well for me.
