Explanation:Sound is very delayed, I can even see an enemy before i heard his footsteps in the same house.

Evidence: N/A

If replicable, how: Jump in a match, especially in the beginning of the match

Platform: PC

*EDIT: I don't have this problem anymore.

So, to confirm, capping the frame rate is the current workaround for this? Just wanting to give more context to the folks working on this.

Explanation: Everything just feels off. Performance, my pc is noisier now, my gpu temps are higher (no performance increase), the game looks kinda trashy, items look trashy, the sound is all over the place. (Certain things are quieter and louder which is throwing the balance of sounds off). Night looks even shitier. Radeon settings is iffy with the game now, for me to have it work I need to switch to windowed then back to fullscreen. Some people are reporting 3d res settings too high.

Edit - More detail.

Performance. I'm encountering a bit of stuttering (could just be server load), with a 120 fps cap my gpu temps are now about 5-10 degrees higher than last patch. Highest fps achieved with my settings was 270-280 in the main menu. Now it's back down to 250-260. Around about a 20fps decrease. (Specs - i7700k @4.8 / 290x) I use Radeon settings, 120 fps frame limiter and enhanced sync. The profile will not be picked up by the game unless I window and then back to fullscreen . This was not an issue last patch. People are also reporting input delay/lag now.

Visual. The colours look really off, items on the ground are pretty hard to distinguish. I actually couldn't tell the difference between a blue and purple sniper without mousing over it to read it. Whatever the colours looked liked last patch. Was nice, this isn't nice. I don't know how to explain that any further.

Sound. Everything seems a little quieter to me. Except for guns. The sounds don't feel balanced, things are either too loud or too quiet. I feel I either hear no one rushing me or everyone rushing me. No one building or everyone building etc.

Evidence: https://www.reddit.com/r/FortNiteBR/comments/7xpw6f/everything_just_feels_off_this_patch/ Thread created before the megathread. Not exactly evidence but it's other reports.

If replicable, how: Just play the game for 5 minutes.

Platform: PC

Really appreciate the descriptive write-up! The more info + specifics we have, the more the team has to work with to fix the issues at hand. We are diving into the audio + visual issues as we speak!

Explanation The Ps plus skin doesnt work. Downloaded it and got a purchase mail from sony but it isnt in my library neither in the game. Now it just says cant download it since you already bought "special glider".

Platform Ps4

Appreciate the heads up, I have made sure the team is aware of this. Did the restart happen to fix the issue for you or is this still happening?

Can I theoretically cancel out the fall damage by timing the grenade just right when I'm nearing the ground while falling? I guess I'll have to tried that out for myself?

Yes :)

What did u guys do? the magic is a little gone the game feels empty after this patch

Hey Folks, we are looking into the graphical + audio issues that are getting reported. One thing that would be a HUGE help, can you provide the following details (screenshots and videos are a major plus):

  • Where this occurred
  • What platform this occurred on
  • How did it occur (What steps did you take to get there)?

Any specifics you can provide to help the team track down + tackle these issues is a big help. Thanks!

Do you take fall damage if you use this on yourself, or does a teammate if you knock them?

Normal falling damage calculations apply.

You should look into a mouse with a larger number of side buttons. It would probably be a little weird to get used to but I would imagine it would streamline your experience somewhat.

@Gemini I have an extra Unreal Engine-flavored Logitech G600 that I don't use, happy to ship it over to you if you think it'd help! It might let you cut the keyboard out of the equation at least.

That’s quite the lady, she’s definitely a keeper! This is so rad.

Nice play

My fps are dropping when i jump out from the airplane (parachute). They drop to 40/30 while i'm on the parachute, but normally i play with 200+ like you can see on the screenshots!

Can someone help me with this problem? Thank you!

This is a known thing that was introduced in v2.2.0. The world is loading after you jump out and can put a ceiling on your max frame rate for a short time during your decent. We have improvements coming in the next few releases to help address this.

We're definitely looking into it. Thanks!

Hey Loomin. Will our levels reset in season 2? Currently Level 85 so obviously XP takes ages to level up to get to next level. Will that reset so in season 3 I can rapidly earn lower level stars again?

Cheers.

Yes; your levels will reset, just like they did in Season 1 >> Season 2.
