Default need help with FFR lag (windows 10)

hello

i just upgraded to windows 10 from windows 7 (not a fresh install, used the win7->win10 tool that microsoft provides that brings all the data over) and now i ONLY seem to stutter when i use applications like DDREAM and FFR. i tried reducing stuff like windows performance settings, updating all my display drivers, etc - nothing's working.

the computer plays other games just fine perfectly smoothly such as path of exile. when i tick on vsync, both tournament edition and regular r3 release will work just fine - BUT i get those coke lines and my scores become significantly worse.

is there anybody who's dealt with this before? i was doing just fine on windows 7.

oh yeah, and i get stutters on ddream as well. please help if anybody has previous experience with this!

Have you tried using frame rate of 55?

Having lag/stuttering/frame-skipping problems of any kind? Try these in order, and test a song in-game in between each step until you reach something comfortable for you.
If you're still having issues after testing all of these individually, then @ me on Discord.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-play around with vsync checkbox in options (if you have it on, turn it off. Off? Turn it on). Generally, it should be Off, but if you get straight judgment lines in results (no millisecond drift in judgments and they're showing up as straight horizontal lines), you should change it to the other option.

-disconnect from multiplayer if you're playing single player. No reason to get bogged down by multiplayer.

-Turn off slideshow desktop backgrounds in Windows 10. The swapping between images in Windows 10, on any monitor, causes a shift in usage priority that impedes FFR & can cause lag spikes whenever Windows attempts to generate a new image for the windows background, even if the desktop background is not viewable.
*To check on Windows 10, Windows Settings (click start menu bottom left, type 'settings') -> search 'background image' -> Set 'Background' to 'Picture', and not 'Slideshow'. Make sure all monitors are using a static image.

-try swapping between the normal & hybrid versions. Both versions are built around improvements in performance made available by different computer hardware. You don't know which one is better unless you try both. You can find a download to hybrid version where you initially downloaded FlashFlashRevolution, on the download page for the game.

-set priority of program (right click FlashFlashRevolution.exe under 'Processes') in Windows Task Manager to 'high' (NOT REALTIME). Ctrl+Shift+Escape or Ctrl+Alt+Delete will get you to Task Manager by default. (Specifically in Windows 10, right click the process in Task Manager, select 'go to details', and then select 'Priority' as HIGH.)

-change in-game framerate to that of your monitor hertz (Hz). *To check on Windows 10, Windows Settings (click start menu bottom left, type 'settings') -> search 'display res' -> Scroll down to 'Advanced Display Settings' -> will show Refresh Rate (Hz).*

-Run a program in the background that gets your GPU spinning (high-intensity game, bitcoin miner, OBS, etc.) (This somehow works because of what FFR decides to utilize when opening). Start the GPU-running program, and then open up FFR. This tricks FFR into using the GPU vs integrated graphics.

-If you are an Nvidia user and all else fails, right click your desktop -> Nvidia Control Panel -> Manage 3D Settings -> Program Settings -> Add FlashFlashRevolution.exe (There may be more than one if you have more than one installation of FFR, check the file location) -> Customize FlashFlashRevolution.exe to set Vertical Sync to 'Fast' and APPLY.

-In the same location as the above step for Nvidia users, setting 'Power management mode' to Prefer maximum performance and applying the changes can assist with lag for some users.

-If you are an AMD (Radeon) user and all else fails, go to Radeon Settings (red splash icon on the up arrow in the taskbar, bottom-right) -> Gaming -> Add -> R3Air.exe (or R3.exe, located wherever you unzipped your FlashFlashRevolution files), and from there, turn ON 'Frame Rate Target Control' and change it to your in-game framerate.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Can't be of more help than that, most of the issue is directly caused by Windows 10 OS, and can't be changed. Will add more to this as more specific problems / issue arises from players to help better narrow down solutions.

There's been numerous notices from players that the game runs most optimally on Windows 7, so if a Virtual Machine is an option to you, or you are skilled enough to know what you are doing with dual-booting or booting to a separately installed Operating System, then this might be a preferred solution.

i did read that refresh rate VS fps being different can cause desyncs so i tried 50, 55, 60, multiples of 50, 55, 60 - no avail.

Should clarify here, problem was solved here via the Nvidia Control Panel solution in my post that I added after this problem. I'm just gonna copy-paste the URL for my post around when people have issues now & add to it as I find more problems with different solutions.

First thing you gotta do with Windows 10 is customize everything you can. By default, Microsoft is whispering a lot of optional sweet nothings to your CPU, and stealing precious MHz from her clock.
Explore the Settings interface and simplify things. Change what apps and services run at startup. Change the way system services behave, and disable things you know will not be used. Uninstall programs that are not used.
I could go into detail on particulars, just ask.

Run a program within the background that gets your GPU spinning (high-intensity game, bitcoin miner, OBS, etc.) (This somehow works as a result of what FFR decides to utilize once opening). begin the GPU-running program, then open up FFR. This tricks FFR into victimisation the GPU vs integrated graphics.
