Strange issues

#1 Post by Merlo » 28 Jun 2020 17:52

I bought ATS on steam a long time ago, have racked 188 hours of gameplay, never had an issue.

From a couple of days ago I can't run it at all in DX11. It simply won't start. DX9 sometimes works, usually doesn't. OpenGL always works.
Frame rate went from usual 80-ish fps to 30, sometimes even 15.
In game there are no background images anymore (black), mouse look doesn't work, etc.
I've tried verifying the files in Steam but apparently everything is ok?
What could be the cause?
If I uninstall the game completely and then reinstall, my save files should still work, right?

What are your computer specs, specifically your graphics card?

That is very easily capable of running DX11.

Make sure your Nvidia drivers are up to date.

Also give this a try: Go to Documents/American Truck Simulator. Open config.cfg file. If you haven't previously opened this it can be edited with notepad.

Scroll down to near the bottom.

Look for this:

uset cf_asus_aura "1"

Change the 1 to a 0, save and try launching again.

Thank you for your help.

This made no difference and neither did removing all the mods and starting with a blank profile.
But I have since solved it by making a backup of the installation directory, deleting it and letting steam redownload the game from scratch.
