Delay in stick movement on screen

Post by vanliessum » Mon May 04, 2020 9:22 pm

Will a delay between joystick handling and the movement on the screen be caused by an insufficient graphic card or are there any other solutions for the problem?
Detailing is reasonably well, although during the end of final it is hard to judge the distance to the field. I don’t know if this is normal.

I am running Windows 10 on a MacBook Pro using bootcamp.
Processor i7, 16Gb 1600Mhz
Intel Iris Pro 5200 card: passmark Grd mark 960 (but this seems to be something else than the numbers of the mentioned system requirements 1000, 4000 or 8000?)

There is a "stickforce simulation" slider in the setup. Put it to the left

I don´t understand why are a direct link between stick force and "movement delay" or "motion smoothness" in Condor.

I use a Microsoft Sidewinder Forcefeedback II, and I really appreciate the realism of the Forcefeedback in this sim, but I don´t like to move the slider to the left (decreasing the stick force) If I whant less smoothness. My Sidewinder joystick has an "elongation" in the stick and the forces in the grip are smaller, so I really would like to move the forcefeeel Condor slider all the way to the right (full force) and don´t have the "smooth motion" as a cons.

This effect it happens too in Condor 1.

My question is ¿There is any way to pull apart both effects, so If I want to use full force I don´t have to experience "full smoothness"?

Thanks

The slider has nothing to do with the force feedback strength.
Stick force simulation

With this option Condor can use lag in command response to simulate pilot stick forces. Higher values produce more lag. Lag also increases with plane speed. This option can also be used to smooth out jerky input of some joysticks.

So, If I move the slider all the way left, the strenght of my Forcefeedback joystick remains ?

That´s a very good news for me. Sorry for being so "donkey" :oops:

Correct. It just takes away the delay

Unfortunately, moving the slider to the left does not change the reaction time to the stick movement.

In other words: the physical stick and the virtual stick do not move simultaneously.
