Need More Info Poor FPS in map and battles

No, I didn't use any mods.


I haven't played Bannerlord for a month or so, but loaded it up today and noticed that in the game map screen and in battles there is extreme lag, like the fps is dropped below 10-15, I hadn't changed any settings since I last played. But, even if I try changing the graphics settings, it doesn't improve it fully other than when putting it down to the lowest settings it makes it playable but ugly. It's rather strange because the main menu screen with the flag bearing warrior in front of the fire seems to be smooth and has no fps issues.

I recently updated to Windows 11 and have the latest Nvidia driver. Oh and I have tested my PC and there are no issues with fps in other games.

I have uploaded a video to youtube to show the performance issues I am having in the map, as you can see it is very stuttery and not smooth at all. Here is the link:
Also, to make sure it wasn't my save file that was an issue, I also tried just playing a custom battle and this also had the same issues.

We have a special performance build to check for these issues by collecting telemetry data. With that data, we can see exactly where and when the game's performance issues happened.
  • Switch to “perf_test” from the Steam betas tab. You can also use the "perf_test_beta" for the most current beta build-related issues. You can find more info about it here.
  • Open the game as usual and proceed to the stage where you are experiencing performance issues.
  • Before the performance issues start, toggle the profiling tool by holding the “right shift” and pressing the “T” key.
  • Record for 20-30 seconds, press the toggle key combination again. Please keep in mind that, the more you record, the more upload time it will require.
  • Find the "test.tmcap" file in the "...\Mount & Blade II Bannerlord\bin\Win64_Shipping_Client" folder. You can find the "Mount & Blade II Bannerlord" folder inside the games installation folder.
  • Finally, you can send the file to us via the ticketing system. You can find more info about how to upload files to us with the new ticketing system here.
  • It is appreciated if you provide more information about your PC, what you were doing while the game was recording, and your graphics configuration. If the data you are trying to upload is too big or the site fails to upload, you can use an alternative site to upload your data. If you choose to do that please left a reply to this thread with the download link.
