6d StarCraft II Low FPS Troubleshooting Guide Hello everyone! I've noticed quite a few people asking for help with low fps issues in StarCraft II. There are many factors that can affect the frame rate of the games you play and often this issue can be resolved by doing some basic PC housekeeping and walking through some basic troubleshooting steps. Instead of repeating myself, I've decided to write a guide to help those who are experiencing low frame rate issues in the game. The PDF guide can be downloaded here. StarCraft II Low FPS Troubleshooting Guide (PDF)!391&authkey=!AJyeTw3RV0ZXoR8&ithint=file%2cpdf It contains a set of basic troubleshooting tips that may help fix low fps issues in your games. It also covers the NVIDIA video card software settings as well as the StarCraft II in-game settings. I've copied the basic troubleshooting tips from the guide and pasted it below. For the non-tech savvy users among us, I've also included easy-to-understand step-by-step instructions for each troubleshooting tip, which can be found in the PDF document. Without further ado, let's get started. 1. Update Your Video Driver The latest graphics card drivers can sometimes provide a large boost in performance. To ensure the best graphics performance, it’s a good idea to keep your video driver as up-to-date as possible. 2. Reset Your Video Driver Settings If your graphics driver is already up-to-date, try resetting your graphics driver settings. Improperly configured application profile settings can cause low fps and resetting them to default values may help improve your frame rates. Support Page → 3. Update The System Drivers Keeping all of the major system drivers (chipset, audio, network etc.) up-to-date is essential to the performance of your system. 4. Update Your Operating System Use Windows Update to keep your Windows computer up-to-date with the latest patches, bug fixes and performance improvements. 5. Perform a Clean Startup Some applications and services may interfere with StarCraft II. By performing a clean startup, you can determine whether a background program or service is the source of the frame rate problem. Support Page → 6. Adjust Visual Settings in Windows Disabling many of the visual enhancements and graphical features within Windows can improve your system’s performance. 7. Check Your Power Options In Balanced and Power Save mode the CPU may not be running up to its full potential all the time. Enable High Performance mode to run the CPU full throttle and maximize system performance and responsiveness. 8. Check Your GPU’s Power Management Mode Another setting to consider is the graphics card’s power management mode setting. If it’s set to ‘Adaptive’, it may run at a lower frequency to conserve power. Setting it to ‘Prefer High Performance’ can increase the frame rate in your games. 9. Disable Windows 10 Game DVR If you face any performance issues while playing games, and if you don’t have any need for it, try disabling Windows 10 Game DVR. 10. Configure or Disable OneDrive If OneDrive is enabled your frame rate may drop if OneDrive synchronizes the folder while you are playing StarCraft II. If you are having frame rate issues and OneDrive is enabled, configuring or disabling it might help. 11. Set Windows for Best Performance for Programs While the ‘Adjust for best performance’ setting in the Advanced System Properties is set to optimize Windows for best performance for programs by default, it is worth checking this setting to ensure it is still the case on your system. 12. Optimize Your Hard Drive Optimizing your hard drive can aid in improving the frame rate in StarCraft II, especially if game assets like textures, models and shaders are loaded at runtime. 13. Check for Overheating Components CPU’s and GPU’s can throttle down performance to compensate for the heat. Make sure your system isn’t overheating. Support Page → 14. Scan for Viruses and Malware If the system is running slowly, there is a possibility that it’s infected with a virus or malware. Scan your computer for virues and malware to ensure it’s still clean and not infected. Support Page → 15. Check for Problem Devices Check for problem devices to ensure that there are no conflicts between device drivers or problems with any devices on your system. 16. Disable NVIDIA ShadowPlay & Streaming Service Increase your frame rate and save precious CPU cycles by disabling NVIDIA ShadowPlay & NVIDIA Streaming Service. 17. Temporarily Disable Your Sound Card Disabling your sound card will help you determine if the sound card is the root cause of the low frame rate problem. 18. Check for CPU Hogs Programs that require a lot of CPU resources can slow down your computer. Look for resource wasting programs that you can shut down to free up CPU cycles and check your computer’s CPU usage while playing StarCraft II. 19. Turn Off Search Indexing in Windows Windows Search Indexing is constantly running in the background. For users with a slow computer it can be benificial to turn off Windows Search Indexing. 20. Enable Intel Turbo Boost If your CPU supports Intel Turbo Boost Technology, it can run faster than the noted speeds. Enabling Turbo Boost will result in increased performance in applications and games. 21. Use High Performance Discrete GPU To ensure your games take advantage of the faster graphics card in your system, set the preferred graphics processor setting to the High Performance Graphics Processor. 22. Exit Blizzard App When Launching Games In rare cases, the Blizzard App can cause high CPU load. If the Blizzard App is causing high CPU load on your system, set it to close itself when it launches a game to improve the frame rate in StarCraft. 23. Disable Superfetch Superfetch tries to improve performance by predicting which applications a user is likely to launch and preemptively loads them into RAM. Some players have reported improved game performance with SuperFetch disabled, so disabling it may be worth a shot if you’re experiencing in-game “stutters”. 24. Enable or Disable AMD Turbo Core AMD Turbo Core allows the processor to dynamically adjust the CPU operating frequency. Some users have reported better performance with AMD Turbo Core enabled, while some others have claimed that their fps drops stopped with AMD Turbo Core disabled. If it’s already enabled, try disabling it. If it’s not enabled, turn it on and see if that helps. Please keep in mind that while the suggestions listed above and the ones listed in the PDF document may help improve your PC's performance, they will never be able to improve it beyond the limitations of your system's hardware. If you're still experiencing low fps after that, I'd recommend running a system benchmark (e.g. PassMark) and compare your computer’s performance with the online results to ensure your system is running at the correct performance speeds. Good luck, and happy StarCrafting! Changelog ========== April 19, 2018: Removed outdated steps. May 13, 2016: Initial document release. May 19, 2016: PDF download link changed from Twitter to OneDrive. May 20, 2016: Added "AMD Turbo Core" and fixed typos.Deanx15 6d

3d Nova Covert Ops - black screen (6. mission) Hello there! I have a problem with Nova Covert Ops in 6. mission after 4. cutscene. When 4. cutscene (finding evidecne) ends, there is just... black screen. I don't know what kind of issue it is. I think, I've already try everything: reinstall game, change to lower graphic, try it on another computer.. I also wrote a ticket for a help. Unfortunatelly, the advices weren't helpful. I am so powerless about it and also disappointed. I didn't pay for half a game, but for full campaign. Please, can you help me with it? Do you have any experience or solution of it? Thank you for all helpful advices. :)FizzyElf0 3d

5d Low quality cinematics / low fps in cutscenes Long time ago, I bought each of the Starcraft 2 Collector's Editions. Today I thought to myself: "Well, you haven't really played these games, but you can at least take a look at how good they run on your PC (Core i7-5820k, 16 GB RAM, GTX 1070)." To my confusion, the quality of the prerendered cinematics is horrible. Switching between "high" and "low" video quality makes no difference; obviously the high quality videos are simply not available (or aren't used if selected). Also, the videos stutter like hell. Furthermore, while the ingame graphics run smoothly, the (non-prerendered) cutscenes run at extremely low fps (even though nothing's happening on screen; low poly Ranor drinking booze shouldn't be that hard to render, even in 4k). So I googled these problems and lo and behold: They were know for years; there are dozens of support threads dealing with them and of course, there's no solution. What the hell Blizzard?! Why do these obvious problems still exist? Why haven't they been fixed years ago?Thomago1 5d
5d Low fps, did all the steps Hi, I have low fps after reinstalling windows and the game. I have done all the steps in the mvp sticky post. I had fps problems in Overwatch after reinstalling windows, but they are fixed. For some reason sc2 has become the problem now. I used to have a stable 110fps in normal circumstances (low graphic settings), with possibly some "not so serious" dips in the more demanding missions in campaign. Now I have 30 fps normally. I have around 50-60 fps on light campaign missions when I disabled blizzard app. I haven't even tried the more demanding missions in campaign. Blizzard shouldn't expect customers to work this hard to get the game work. They should make sure that there are NO compatibility issues to begin with. Now it seems it is a norm that I need to work really hard to make the game work, when ever I change something. Blizz is really starting to drop the ball here. edit: still drops down to <20 fpsMkVibes0 5d
02 Dec SC2 freezes after 20-25 minutes every game Hi all Would love it if someone can help me with this, it's been driving me nuts for months now. Ever since I got a new gaming laptop in April (MSI GT73VR 6RE Titan) StarCraft 2 has been freezing after 20-25 minutes of gameplay. It's ALWAYS within 20-25minutes, it's annoyingly not long enough to finish most Co-op games but it never crashes before the 20 minute mark. The freeze/crash itself is odd - the game just hangs, but it will keep playing audio normally - it will finish whatever music file it was playing or sound file it was playing. If there are any continual background noises in the map then they'll continue playing normally. The sound doesn't loop or just stop like you'd normally expect it to when a game crashes, it just carries on playing normally until it finishes playing whatever sound file was loaded at the time. I can still move the cursor as well and it's the normal animated game cursor - but the game is completely frozen. It won't unfreeze no matter how long I leave it either. Alt-F4 doesn't work. I can't alt tab - well I can press alt-tab and see the selection screen for other apps running, but I can't bring any other apps to the fore-front of the frozen game. I can't use the "show all desktop" button, but I can get the task bar to appear by pressing the keyboard start menu key and left click on it, I just can't bring any menu screens or apps to the front of the screen to actually see them. The only way I can get out of it is to ctrl-alt-del to bring up the blue Windows 10 menu screen and then choose to Sign Out or Shut Down. If I choose sign out, Windows does it immediately without any problems. I don't think it's overheating because I've tried limiting my FPS to 60 and it still does it (using the frame rate limiter commands in the variables.txt). The SC2 FPS counter shows my GPU at a consistent 52 degrees throughout, without ever spiking - especially when it freezes, it's still at 52 degrees. This has happened throughout multiple BIOS versions, NVidia drivers, MSI drivers/utility versions, so I don't think it's dodgy drivers because I've had it over so many driver versions in the last five months. I always do clean installs for drivers too, whenever possible. And the weirdest thing is it doesn't happen in other games! I can play HOTS for hours without any problems. Played Diablo 3 fine, WoW fine, Destiny 2 fine, other Steam games fine. It's just SC2! It's driving me nuts. Anyone have any suggestions? Please!Sagittari35 02 Dec
01 Dec [Bug] Zeratul's Prophetic vision crashes the game! Every time I use Prophetic vision when the artifact is within screen range, SC2 just freezes for 3-5mins and I'm disconnected from the game. The game freezes at the first artifact itself. Zeratul is unplayable for me. FYI: Graphic settings are set to low. I have no issue using any other commander or playing ladder. Please help!Nostalgika0 01 Dec
30 Nov Shader problems, missing HP bars, etc. Dear Blizzard Support! After the latest update the actors and the backgrounds in non-prerendered cutscenes are shaded wrongly (dark blue-ish) E.g. In the Coop menu all the commanders will all have a blue-ish shade. The planet in the background, and the solar core which also radiates yellow). The health bars are missing too. All these issues are with a GTX960 but when I switch shader quality to medium the blue-ish problem is gone. Has anyone else experienced this? RegardsEntilZha5 30 Nov
29 Nov Co-Op Mission Not finishing after timer runs out So, me and a friend was doing a Co-Op mission where you have to defend the Temple for 15 minutes, when the time ran out, nothing happened, and we was forced to quit the match. I took a snapshot showing that the time has ran out, but see nowhere to upload here.Valendris1 29 Nov
28 Nov Cannot join lobby Since last patch it happened many times i cannot join a custom lobby. It just stays at the joining progess but i never enter, even though for the people already in lobby its displayed i´ve already joined. (When the game starts i wont be in) Its no internet connection problem, the actual loading of the map is done very fast. Happened mostly with custom map EntropyTD, but i doubt it can be map related. (Playing the map a lot, usually it works just fine) However, once it happened, it will happen 100% of the time until i restart SC2 and launcher. Just SC2 wont resolve. Any more information on that?TheCurse0 28 Nov

29 Nov Achievements not working? I have finished the campaign of Starcraft 2 Heart of the Swarm but i have a problem with some Achievements not working. One such achievement is the one called "Abathur's Cookbook.

Anyone who knows how to fix this?Sev14 29 Nov
25 Nov LANGUAGE CHANGED, HOW DO I STOP DOWNLOAD Thx for that closing of that topic. Just wanted to tell how much i hate Blizzard. And that the hint at the last post didnt work at all. Still have to download an platypus 6gb pile ofplatypus because i accidentaly changed the language. This company has become worse and worse. I hope you getting down and give the SC francise to competent devs. Blizzard just sucks today! You pushing that whole online thing too far. Almost every week there are half a gig updates for sc2. Please stop that.Õuks1 25 Nov

24 Nov Disconnecting after minutes every multi game. After updating to 4.0.0,I can't seem to play multiplayer anymore. Any match I join,I just disconnect. I play perfectly fine for 3, 6, 10 minutes, without any lag spikes. Then it does that "Trying to reconnect thing" and I'm forced to surrender. Every. Game. I've also tried to fix this, analizing the game, clearing the caches, but nothing worked. Gotta try reinstalling it, but I wonder why I'm the only one who's having this problem. It's been really frustrating, I bought SC2 just five months ago and now it's free, and I can't even play it... Did I waste 35 euros? Somebody please help me.LordVandor38 24 Nov

23 Nov Mouse drag (wheel) bug - video Please see the video: I use mouse-wheel drag as the main method of scrolling during micro fights. It has not happened to me for a long time and now it's happening again. The two problems are 1: the mouse sometimes jumps on the middle of the screen which ruins any skill (EMP/snipe/liberation zone) that requires mouse accuracy 2: sometimes the screen jumps in the direction of the mouse a whole screen (somehow calculated through the mouse drag speed, so the higher the speed the more it'll jump) I am extremely upset with this and as I've used this method for years and thousands of matches I cannot simply switch to edge scrolling back again. I feel extremely disappointed as this issue seems to never have been fixed by anyone - it just comes and goes. I have noticed multiple threads across the years most of which have been replied with "we are aware of this and it will be fixed in a future patch" - how many of these replies should I read before this actually gets fixed? I understand it may be because of 4.7.0 - It doesn't even matter why it's happening. Please, I am not here to argue or insult or bad mouth Blizzard - I am here to ask you, nay, beg you to fix this issue - PLEASE look into it. This issue requires a hotfix, not the wait of another x months for a patch. Please be sensible, whoever reads this and make sure it is reported properly - not only does it ruin observer/caster experience but it COMPLETELY ruins the gameplay of some of us who chose this method of screen scrolling.Rinogg4 23 Nov

18 Nov Achievements & Stukov bugs A few bugs I've recently encountered: 1. Sometimes when I log in, I get the commander Karax purchase achievement as if I just did it, actually I purchased Karax months ago and mastered it. No bugs on Karax mastery and play however. 2. Today I reached ascension level 300 in co-op, but didn't get points & achievement recognition. 3. My Mutation Hard counter was showing wrongly until I reached 75 wins (but recognised the achievement correctly still) and then stopped showing. 4. Sometimes I play Stukov, Structural Infestation cooldown starts from the beginning after I use it the first time in the game, although I didn't use it immediately after available; this happens when I have just one available, not when it's full! I have Stukov mastered.Zvijer0 18 Nov
17 Nov [Solved] Mouse pointer not showing (Since update) Hi, I am having a problem with StarCraft II since the latest update. It is causing my mouse pointer to be "invisible". I can still move my mouse pointer around to highlight and click buttons but I just can't see the mouse pointer. I found that by switching to full screen windowed mode (from normal full screen) I was able to see my mouse pointer, however this only allows me to run the game at max res, which significantly reduces the performance. Before the latest update it has always been ok but it doesn't any more (I'm using windows 10 if that helps) ThanksBalkarn6 17 Nov

14 Nov [Mac] Launcher unreliability Hey, Steps: 1)Launch launcher, is says Update sc2 2) I press Update Result: Forever Waiting. I understand the need in a launcher, but considering it is the hub to all games, it should be reliable. I, as a user, should not care about the problems behind it. It should just work. The key functionality of a launcher is to launch the games I own. When it doesn't do it key functionality, people get frustrated. Once in a month, I encounter the problem when I'm coming home and try to play Sc2, and the launcher messes up with me. I follow the links, I erase folders, I restart my mac, I reinstall the launcher, and same stuff happens: either "blizzard agent went to sleep", or forever waiting update. Super tired of this buggy stuff. It's a joke. Guys, I just wanna play. Why the launcher doesn't allow me to? Cmon, make the launcher reliable and failproof.Dumoko2 14 Nov
25 Nov 1v1 Rank Up Glitch Hey guys. 2 days ago I was one win away from getting promoted into Masters 3. I managed to win the game, but now I´m still Diamond 1 with Bronze 3 MMR. After that I waited one day to see if something has changed. And indeed something has changed. The next day i logged in I was STILL Diamond 1 but with Masters 3 displayed in my MMR. I did not get the animation showing that I was promoted to Masters 3. At the moment I´m sitting at 4655 MMR which is easily enough for Masters 3 on the EU servers. Im getting a little worried that they can´t fix it before the season lock and I won´t get the "achieved Masters in 1v1" emblem on my profile. Is someone else having the same problem as I do ?Raf5 25 Nov
