Default Stuttering fixes using 1.73

October 9th, 2009, 17:25
I decided to give Gothic 3 another try using the CP patch ( v1.73 now )

Despite a high-end rig: Phenom II x4 920, 4GB Ram, Geforce GTX 260, Win 7 pro 64bit; I've had all of the problems that people seem to have.

First and foremost I had the font bug, 1fps slideshow.
Fix: Replace Gothic3.ttf with any other font (arial works fine) renamed Gothic3.ttf

Then I had nearly-unplayable stuttering. It seems the stuttering comes from loading textures off the disk instead of storing them in memory.

Using the ini from http://forum.jowood.com/showthread.p…76&page=25#363 removed most of the stuttering, it's playable now. This seems to be using about 3gb of ram so I'm hoping I can improve on this yet by increasing the memory cache sizes.

That ini author states it's conservative values derived from the German Board at
Bable Fish http://forum.worldofplayers.de/forum/showthread.php?t=536804 I'm going to try that next see if that reduces the stuttering completely.

I'm just hoping my experiences can help someone who's still trying to play Gothic 3.

Well that INI tweak won't definately decrease the stuttering, but quite opposite since it increases drawing distances. I also made some INI tweaks and I also increased the resource (memory) caches: http://forum.worldofplayers.de/forum…&#post10710407

The game already runs pretty nicely on my computer already in Win7.

I tried these files and it runs great now, even better than before and the details are really cranked up. No stuttering at all while playing now, just a little extra texture caching on first load, then it's smooth.

I've read on the forums and my own experiences I seem to confirm it, the game actually runs better on newer hardware if you crank up the details because then more processing is pushed to the video card. I know, I know, doesn't make sense, why wouldn't the low settings be pushed to the card too? But it's true for me at least.

Your experience will certainly be helpful to quite a lot of people. Most infos on optimisation here are from 2006.
