Default Re: FEAR, Logitech HID bad performance

I have this problem and the only things that cause it are the G15 kb and G5 mouse. I have various mice from razer, and have tried at least 4 different keyboards (besides the logitech). The only other keyboard I had a problem with is the MS comfort curve. I had to disable something under USB to make framerates go to normal.

With the logitechs, on the G5 (with setpoint) you have to disable something in the USB. The thing that must be disabled for decent framerates also disables the DPI setting ability of setpoint. Basically the only way to tweak it is to exit the game, enable the usb device, set the DPI, disable and restart the game. Same deal pretty much with the G15, have to disable one of the USB things.

Sorry I can't be more specific but I am not at home so I can't tell you exactly what it is. BTW, this is all on windows XP.

I am currently using a dell keyboard (slim one, very nice and only $15), and a G5 with the usb device disabled.

Default Re: FEAR, Logitech HID bad performance

I just recently bought the game pack off of Steam, and am now running into this issue.
I have a second gen Logitech G5 with no software installed. Running Windows 7 Ultimate 64.
I have 2x Nvidia GeForce 260M GTX in SLi, running on Nvidia NForce 7 motherboard (POS crap).

My issue is a little bit more strange though. When running the benchmark, I get

Min 65
Avg 152
Max 404

After a few minutes everything gets choppy and performance goes down the tubes:

Min 9
Avg 9
Max 10

So I restart the game and unplug the mouse and just use the touchpad. This is where it gets weird. I ran the test again.

Min 26
Avg 33
Max 38

Well wtf? That's weird, I reran the test and same thing, around those figures. So without turning off the game, I plugged in my G5. The game froze for a second, but came back so I reran the test once more.

Min 67
Avg 153
Max 403

That's better, so ran the test again, this time about 3/4 of the way through, it started to chug really bad again, so I unplugged the mouse. The game again froze for about 4 seconds, but came back and the test continued, but at the reduced 30ish FPS. I then immediately plugged the mouse back in, and again the game froze but then continued and fps jumped back up to over 100. Weird. ****ing retarded but weird.

Look for the other thread on FEAR and you will see a fix.

Basically, disable all your HID devices and it should fix things.

Disabling HID access in services fixed a few issues for folks. That's been a bit of a headache since Vista's beta days.

Yup that worked, just finished playing for over an hour, and performance went up too.

Whats funny, I was playing around with a hacked driver that allows you to change the USB polling rate....

FEAR was running good until I upped the resolution from 1440x900 to 1680x1050. Then the problem came back :-/

This problem affects the G9 as well, though seemingly not to as great an extent as the G15. With a G9, I would actually get playable framerates, mostly in the 40-50 range. Even removing the Setpoint software didn't fix it. Disabling HID devices in device manager worked, as well as unplugging the G9 and swapping it for a basic two-button MS optical notebook mouse.
