Oh, I also forgot to tell I never install GeForce Experience. Maybe this is the issue...
eh, фuckHello, everyone I have an announcement to make. So basically what happens with drivers and Windows updates is that some API parameters get outdated, therefore current hardware does not understand these parameters, then people like us get graphical glitches like flickering, missing textures, ghosting etc. In order for this to be fixed Taleworlds need to update the engine... Which means no good. What I mean by that is IF they update the engine (which they won't) ALL the mods will have to be remade from scratch which is lowkey impossible...So by saying all of this I'm saying is i give up. Goodbye Warband it was good while it lasted. RIP
My bet is that it has nothing to do with nvidia, as the problem appears on intel drivers tooSomething that has been working with people that I've recently talked to is to go to this website https://www.nvidia.com/Download/Find.aspx# and download a relevant version of your graphics card driver that was released before November 2020.
Before installing it, just make sure to uninstall your current display adapter and make sure to tick the box that says "delete the driver software for this device" through Device Manager.
After you are done installing your driver that was released before November 2020, restart your PC, and then test out warband for about an hour to see if your fps issue has been resolved.
@Militio, IDK why this method doesn't work for you. I've had like 15 random people ask me to guide them through this process because of the steam discussions, but this method has worked for all of them.
The only people I know that this hasn't been working for are the AMD users that started having similar fps issues around the same time that Nvidia users did, but the AMD issue doesn't seem to be related to the in-game mouse cursor like the Nvidia one is. They've been dropping FPS randomly in the middle of battles, which isn't exactly the same issue that Nvidia users have been having.
This worked for me, which may also explain why reinstalling the driver appears to fix it (given this would close instances of Nvidia Container).My cursor flickering returned last weekend. I just went through taskmanager and I had six instances of Nvidia Container opened, after closing them all it's now 100% working.
If you look at the history of people having this particular issue surrounding the in-game cursor causing extreme fps issues, a lot of people started having the exact same issue around the exact same time, and the only thing that links them all together is that they all updated their graphics drivers to versions released after November 2020, while those that haven't, have not ran into any extreme fps issues with Warband (as far as I am aware.)My bet is that it has nothing to do with nvidia, as the problem appears on intel drivers too
