Call of Duty Modern Warfare Remastered
Call of Duty Modern Warfare Remastered was one of the first of the series to keep me playing for hours everyday. This went on for a few years. It was fun for everyone to play back in the day, and now with the remastered version, it’s even better. But like I’ve said before, there is not enough traffic. It’s always a challenge to find a multiplayer match, especially in 2022.
The game and this post
I purchased this game on Steam just after release, November 4th, 2016. As soon as the install was finished I opened the game I ran into a few problems. I will discuss how I fixed each of them in this post.
Stuttering and hitching during gameplay
Solution: If your game is stuttering, simply accept the option to preload shaders before playing the game. Every time you update your NVIDIA or AMD drivers, you’ll need to preload shaders again.
Frame rate issues optimal video settings
Even though your system hardware easily meets the minimum system requirements for use “Optimal Video” settings, you will still experience frame rate issues. An update was released that fixed the issue.
SLI and Crossfire optimization
At the time, I was using NVIDIA SLI. The problem, I was seeing the high frame rates I was suppose to be getting. The game wasn’t able to optimize power distribution with SLI or Crossfire.
Regardless of the few issues I experienced at launch, I still love this game. I have since upgraded my computer a few times since then and the game runs at high FPS and gameplay is super smooth.
I do have one gripe, in that preloading shaders takes a long time to complete. Good thing we don’t have to load shaders every time. When the game was first released in 2016, my Internet connection was not super fast. My load times for shaders would exceed 20+ minutes. I’m happy to say those days are over.
