Changes:
  • Fixed /toggledecals not working for normals.
  • Fixed performance problem when running on Windows / AMD OpenGL. (Changed immediate rendering code to delay drawing as long as possible.)
Windows users: https://mxsimulator.com/snapshots/mx-2022-05-19-1623.exe
Linux users: https://mxsimulator.com/snapshots/mxbin-2022-05-19-1623

Replace mx.exe or mxbin with one of the above files. The default location for mx.exe should be "C:\Program Files (x86)\MX Simulator". Please note that the ".exe" extension is hidden in Windows so the file will just show as an application named "mx". I'd keep a backup of the originals since these aren't well tested.

running a lot better but is there a way you could increase the load? still having some lagspikes when load drops.

Not sure what you mean by that.

Decal normals are now disabled when toggled and I do notice more stable FPS on an intensive track.

Thumbs up here!

My guess is it's the other way around. Something causes a delay, most likely IO related, the CPU has to sit idle waiting for it so your CPU load goes down.

i got the same issue, i have no lag at all but sometimes i got a random lagspike, which can be really annoying depending on where it happens on the track

The snapshot update shouldn't have any effect on the config file. Try opening %localappdata%/MX Simulator and then renaming the file named "config". Then let the game re-create it.

If that doesn't do it, open %localappdata% and rename the MX Simulator folder. Then let the game re-create it. If you had any files in that folder that you need, move the files from the renamed folder to the new one after you have it working.
