Heavy Input Lag

Sun Nov 03, 2019 2:20 pm
My game has been taking all my control inputs with quite a huge delay, sometimes even more than one second. Not only in the races, but also in the menu. And this is inconsistently happening. I can play with absolutely no problem for some time, but it suddenly kicks in a few minutes later, doesn't matter whether I'm playing single player or multiplayer. I've been facing this problem since half a day I guess. I don't think there's anything wrong with my laptop. Performance seems to be just fine with no overheating. Any suggestions if anyone else has faced it before? Right now it looks like I'm the only one facing it. TIA

Hi Infomaniac! Have you tried reducing the graphics quality from the options menu? In addition to this, please be sure to reboot your device from time to time, that way you can clear the memory from any tasks that should no longer be using resources. Let me know if that helps!

Thanks for the suggestion. Now the frequency of input lag has significantly reduced without having to do anything, but when it was frequent, it happened more often when I play for a few minutes after rebooting. Haven't tried reducing graphics settings yet though. It's kinda strange how this started happening randomly when the game was running totally fine before, even at the highest settings. I currently play at medium.

Edit: the input lag has come back worse than before (now happens almost all the time right from when I start the game), it's totally unplayable now. Lowering the graphics to lowest didn't help even to the tiniest extent.

Still isn't fixed. I've had this issue for a while now, never bothered to post about it until it started to consistently **** up my multiplayer rating. My pc can run multiple instances of this game with ease, but this bug just keeps appearing out of nowhere. Playing multiplayer with this bug is impossible (especially given the rating drop when placing last place in packed games). The bug can appear in any match without warning, and there's nothing you can do about it other than pressing alt+f4 and uninstalling the game.

- some keystroke inputs are delayed by 1s+
- some keystrokes don't even activate
- some keystrokes stay activated after releasing
Any game after the bug appears is also glitchy.. It becomes impossible to control your car

Known solutions:
- restart the game, and **** your multiplayer rating that you spent the last 20min grinding for.. bug will reappear in the next 8 player race
- uninstall the game

Same here. Game will be running smoothly with no issues for several races, then randomly it starts to lag. This is a known bug for awhile now. They blame our PC's / Devices and won't acknowledge there's a problem on their end.

Best solution, just uninstall. It's never gonna get fixed.
