Game studders & very low FPS while youtube is playing

Check out what is your cpu usage in ksysguard and what is using it.

It’s possible that this is baloo running and indexing everything. That happens often on Plasma fresh install. Let it run. When it finishes, cpu and the behavior should go back to normal. Sometimes it can take few hours or even days if system doesn’t run long enough and cpu is weak.

well, its been some time now and some changes to the compositor reduced the screentearing. Its still there sometimes, but until I find some extra time to investigate I can live with it.
I don’t know if it was it (I’m on a 6c / 12t cpu) and only 2-3 were used during gaming and I also have one of the fastest ssds…

So the lag during alt+tab stopped?

I was about to answer yes, because I thought it had, but I just opened the game and a youtube video and its still here. I’m still on KDE.

It took me 30 second to move the mouse from the middle of the screen to the side panel to get back in the game :stuck_out_tongue:

This still looks like CPU being busy but with what? Plasma’s System Manager - ksysguard have very complex UI to analyze processes to the very core which is great for developers or deep debugging. However for us - users, it is usually enough to check which process is eating the resources.

There was no info from your side about that so we are running blind and thus not able to proide any meaningful help.

Of course you may also use htop or whatever tool you prefer (glances is a great terminal app to analyze offending processes).

Well sorry about that, I am still trying to get the hang of it. I didn’t really know what information to give besides what I provided. I first search the forum and found this post: How to provide good information in your posts
I will spend my Saturday trying to do some extra research. If you have any useful links for troubleshooting handy I would really appreciate it if you post them bellow.

I’m not really used to asking for help tbh. I prefer doing it myself. I just didn’t have as much time as I would like to learn the basics of trouble shooting and solve my problems later. Right now I’m studying for my uni exams, so I really wanted to be able to play on my free time instead of trouble shooting.

This is just basics, works the same on Windows and Linux. Open system manager and see what is happening right now, what process is spiking, what does it belongs to, etc. This can give you a clue where to look. This kind of live output cannot be easy copied and posted here, but you can provide the results: when I do X, process Y is maxing my CPU, etc.

If you have offensive programs, open them in terminal and see output and post here (so if that is firefox, open terminal, type “firefox” and hit enter). Also, any suspicious errors can be googled.

You can do it all by yourself, this is again, basic troubleshooting. At least we can exclude weak, old hardware based on what you already posted.

you could try something like

while :; do ps axk %cpu -o %cpu,cmd | tail -n 10 >> ~/ps-log.txt;printf "\n\n" >> ~/p
s-log.txt ;sleep 1; done

in a seperate terminal
then produce the “lag”
abort the running while loop in terminal (ctrl+c)
afterwards check file (~/ps-log.txt)

Thing is that no process ever seemed to spike. Out of the 12 threads only 2 where at 100% at any time, so probably just a single core, and the rest of them where either idle, or less that 8% used. If not 8% then 10% MAX.

I just switched back to XFCE, because I actually like it more that KDE. I’m installing the game right now to do what you said. Thanks for the suggestion. Should I open a 2nd terminal and tail -f ~/ps-log.txt to see it live too?

I have no idea what to make of this.

file was huge so I pasted a small part of it.

Do you still have the issue on xfce? If not and you like xfce better, there is no point of dwelling on it further. Also the log is meaningless on other DE when everything works.

As to very large outputs, use pastebin or hastebin and put here only a link.

This log is in XFCE, and the games was shuddering so much that I had to quit the match because I got dizzy. Vsync was off.

The rest of the log was edited out not, not by me, so its probably redundant.

I think you should focus on learning for the uni exams for now, because this leads to nowhere.

We have a classic case of lack of forum skill from your part. I say one, you say something totally different.This is pointless.

It’s not only about providing right information but the ability to keep on topic and respond carefully to questions.

At this point, I have no idea what is your problem or if you have any. This is impossible situation and no one can help you like that. Maybe it’s just you being distracted by the exams or doing too much new stuff. In such case, slow down and just use the system, accept the issues for now, you may go back to them later if they are not immediate show stoppers. Just learn how to use xfce and Linux and maybe you will realize how to fix some of the initial problems later.

EDIT: Since the topic and the issue was constantly changing, I may also lost a track to give meaningful questions. What is the game? What are its settings, etc. Did you try this game on other distro or in Windows? What was the difference? - We need some point of reference to tell if this is bad or normal.
Also you seem to be doing many things at ones which is also confusing. This is no way to trouble shoot. Open game and only game and see if the issue happens. Open YT and play it, see if issue happens.
Games are whole lot different nut to crack and we usually don’t provide help with them, unless this has something to do with the system.

I’m not sure if there is enough questions because you are constantly doing some stuff and give little info. It’s hard to start troubleshooting that way. Besides, the topic is not corresponding to the discussion anymore so this went haywire too soon so the thread should be closed.

This thread appears to boil down to “my system is performing poorly” with no other information.

OP needs to go through the problems systematically rather than jumping around, randomly altering configuration even though the existing config used to work, and not change all the variables each time.

If an issue sometimes occurs, or reoccurs after a time, then there’s something else going on. For example, the PC could be overheating. Or the BIOS could be buggy and needs an update (never found out if OP updated the BIOS after I linked to the update). Or the system could be using incompatible RAM. Or OP could have OC’d the CPU and over/under-volted it.

As I said - too many variables.

@mynameisyiannis If you’re serious about wanting to solve this issue, start with a fresh, basic installation of the Xfce edition. Install that game but don’t change anything and see how it performs. Just use it as-is for a while.

Then there’s a known state we can work with.

I just went though the whole post and I realize that you are correct. I am overwhelming myself, and as a result I am not doing a good job here. I apologize if I wasted your time so far. And at this point even if somehow I fix the problem, I don’t think this post will be much of a help to anyone. I am going to try to re-cap everything I’ve done in detail.

Recap.

I’m having trouble with the game Rocket League.

I’m on Manjaro XFCE, and my system is up to date. I am using the non-free Nvidia drivers. This is a fresh installation and the only 2 settings I have changed are these:
In the nvidia-settings: “Force Full Composition Pipeline” is checked
I updated to Kernel 4.18.
I have tested with and without these changes and they make no difference, besides fixing screen-tearing. I tested with and without Force Full Composition Pipeline on both Kernels.

The problem is the following:
I have very high and inconsistent frame-times in Rocket League while watching videos on YouTube or Netflix, on my second monitor. I’m using Firefox.
Watching YouTube or Netflix without the game running is smooth and without any problems. Also, playing the game without any videos on the second monitor, I get high frame-rates like I had on Windows.

If I turn on V sync in the Rocket League video settings, the frame-times get more consistent and the game is “playable” (while watching videos). Although not enjoyable. The frame-rate is low and it makes me dizzy after a while.

I haven’t used any other Linux distro besides Manjaro, but I have tried Manjaro KDE. I had problems there too, but not so similar.
In KDE the frame-rates were good enough, both with vsync on and vsync off, both when YouTube was playing and when it wasn’t.

BUT, when YouTube was playing and I used ‘alt+tab’ to get out of the game do something else, the computer was getting almost unresponsive. I would take me up to 30 seconds to move the mouse from on side of the screen to the other. This experience was on a fresh installation of Manjaro KDE, without any changes at all. I only tried Kernel 4.18 to see if it would fix it, but it didn’t.

Furthermore I want to add that 1c/2t of the CPU are at 100% while gaming and watching YT, while the rest of the are used less than 10%.

In windows with the same PC/ internet connection I was getting high frame-rates with high settings, and I had no issues whatsoever, even with multiple programs running in the background, and watching YouTube/Netflix. Also I want to add that I had stress-tested all of my system’s parts back when I had Windows.

I just spoke to a person using manjaro kde. he had the same exact problems as I did on KDE. Not only with Rocket league, but some other minor problems too. He tried Cinnamon and Mate and the problems were gone. Maybe it’s something about XFCE and KDE?

By disabling the Compositor I found out that I get very good FPS in-game even while streaming youtube. But, I get very low fps on Youtube, and if I alt-tab I experience the same thing as I did in KDE. Even the mouse becomes buggy.
Maybe there is a middle ground somewhere, by using a different compositor?

I concluded that the problem has to do with XFCE’s/ KDE’s compositors and the NVidia drivers. I could be wrong but here’s another update.

I installed Gnome and at first glance I don’t see any of the problems I was facing in XFCE and KDE. The game runs smooth. Youtube isn’t the smoothest it could be but it’s much better now that it was on the other 2 DE. For now I will stay with Gnome. Looks nice. If I find how I can change some weird stuff I may even stay with Gnome.

I spoke to another guy I found on discord, with the same exact problems. He has a 980 and a ryzen cpu, with the same version of nvidia drivers as me. His problems were also fixes when he changed to Mate or cinnamon.

How much video RAM does your card have and what resolutions are you running both screens at? The 1050ti isn’t exactly the fastest card to begin with…

Also update your system if you haven’t done so already. The 396.54 drivers add some performance fixes.

All 1050ti cards have 4GB of ram. I’m using 2 FHD monitors and the 1050ti is more thank capable of playing this game with FXAA at 1080p. On windows I was playing the game on both monitors with split-screen (3840x1080p highest graphic settings and FXAA) and I never had a single stutter. I am using the 396.54 drivers. I update my system whenever a new update get’s pushed.
