Control input latency

Post by Bill Daniels » Tue May 24, 2022 3:15 am

Perhaps this question should go under "Hardware" If so, I apologize.

I am seeing a troublesome amount on input latency. I have used Condor with several computers and don't recall this happening.

Moving any control results in a simulator response about .25 - .5 seconds later which is quite noticeable. I use condor for flight instruction and my students find this to be a problem - particularly in landings where small, quick inputs are needed. Quick repetitive control motions (jiggling) can produce oscillations and/or out-of-phase responses from the sim.

My setup is a CHEWI RZBOX with a AMD R9 running Win11 which is generally praised by the gaming community. The display is a 4K 50" TV. (looks beautiful) Although not likely to be an issue, I am using a Mach0.1 simulator.

Can anyone offer suggestions?

Try turning down the stick (and pedal) force simulation sliders in the input setup page. They add an adjustable amount of averaging to the inputs which can help smooth jittery inputs at the expense of input responsiveness.
