Hello,

Since I finally got fed up with the 1 FPS bug, I spent the last few days reverse engineering the game to try to fix it. While I haven't found the root cause of the issue, I have found one way to fix it, with a few side effects.

For more information and downloads, head over here: https://github.com/alexrp/augmentrex

If you have any issues getting it to work, either post here or open an issue on GitHub (I'm more likely to notice those sooner).

Looks like stellar work indeed :)

I took the liberty of making this a sticky for easier access, as it's bound to be useful to many.

It's very easy to verify that it works. Just start the game with it attached, go to some arbitrary Tokyo area, get an FPS drop, and then type 'patch-long-ray-vm' in the console window. It will instantly resolve the FPS drop.

Just to be clear: 'patch-long-ray-vm' is used to toggle the effect on, same command again will toggle off? I cant wait to give this a try later today. Thank you very much for putting your time and effort into this.

Yep, that's right. You can toggle the patch at any point, even in the middle of gameplay (which you have to do for Ash and Oculis, for example).

it´s a good work from you. Maybe you Need the DVD Version or the data from the DVD Version to find out what the failure is?

Hi, first,  thanks for your effort :)
I play on AMD processor so I probably do not experience the "real" FPS bug. However, I always have severe FPS drop at the end of Upper Edo castle,  where the unique mad oni crusher is.  Unfortunately, it occured with your augmentrex on too. So I guess, it is different issue?
I started the game from the augmentrex, log looked okay, so I guess it was active at that time or is it necessary to toggle it on with the command?

You have to toggle the fix on with the 'patch-long-ray-vm' command. It's not on by default.

oh, thanks, I give it another try, then :)

Update:  works like charm
no FPS drop on way to Natan, no FPS drop due to moth spawns and killing of moths swarms

love you  :P

Glad to hear it worked. :)

By the way, if anyone here happens to have Hellgate Global still lying around, I'd love it if you could send me a copy somehow. Having various versions of the game is really helpful when reverse engineering, and unfortunately the drive I had the game from back when I still played has long since died.
