Stuttering, Low FPS Fix
Performance is a bane of PC gamers’ existence. Skater XL players are experiencing low FPS and stuttering issues and here is how to fix them.
First, make sure you have installed the latest GPU driver and do a clean installation. Also, open Task Manager and make sure no process is using too much CPU, GPU, or HDD.
If the players are experiencing the performance issues after an update then its the mods that are causing the stuttering and low FPS with Skater XL.
Go to your Steam folder and navigate to Steam\steamapps\common\Skater XL\Mods. Delete all mod files and launch the game. It won’t stutter anymore and the FPS issue will be fixed.
In case the above scenario doesn’t apply, start the game disable in-game v.sync then close the game. Open Nvidia Control Panel > Manage 3d Settings > Program Settings > select Skater XL and make the following changes.
Anti-aliasing-FXAA – “Off”
Anti-aliasing-Gamma Correction – “Off”
CUDA GPUs – “All”
Low Latency Mode – Player’s choice.
Set Power Management to “Prefer Maximum Performance”
Shader Cache – “On” only if you are using an HDD. Don’t need to enable it for an SSD.
Set Texture filtering – Quality to “High Performance”
Triple Buffering – “Off”
Set Vertical Syn to “On”
Apply these settings and after that, low FPS and stuttering should be fixed in Skater XL.
If the stuttering still persists, follow the steps mentioned above but, set Vertical Syn to “Fast”. This will not only fix stuttering but, will also give a potential FPS boost if players have a moderate CPU and GPU.
