Wanted: multi-instance, mult-monitor benchmark v0v

If you ask a question like that and figure it out spread the information. Other people might have had the same question and been waiting for yours to be answered.

If i dont know something about EVE. I check https://wiki.eveonline.com/en/wiki/ISK_The_Guide

I think i found an issue:

If you have two screen and click off of the test on to your second screen it will minimize the test. The FPS results are definitely not what you are looking for:

Here was my results during the test:

Quote:
SCENE 1: controltower COMPLETE
Previous run:
Malloc: 274MB
AVG. FPS: 17688.0

SCENE 2: festivallaunchers COMPLETE - (this was the only test I watched)
Previous run:
Malloc: 302MB
AVG. FPS: 59.0

SCENE 3: fleet1 COMPLETE
Previous run:
Malloc: 64MB
AVG. FPS: 26753.0

SCENE 4: fleet2 COMPLETE
Previous run:
Malloc: 229MB
AVG. FPS: 25386.0

SCENE 5: fleet3 COMPLETE
Previous run:
Malloc: 115MB
AVG. FPS: 25904.0

showoff~!

I tried putting one instance on each screen and hitting start/begin (whatev) but it just caused them all to fail.

fullscreen for me is 2048 x 1500, btw, so like, yeah.

Thanks for trying it out!


thanks for reply


i however running tons of other programs in my PC, would it affect the result?
or would be recommended running PROBE alone after fresh boot?

Other programs may affect the performance, yes, so in general it is best to have nothing else going on.

Wouldn't it be best to run the probe like we would run the client? Or are you interested only into optimal data?

Do we get some nice charts with data after you get some decent pools of results?! PLS PLS PLS :D

I sense a dev blog with charts in my future...

About charts, can we also get a breakdown for our own performances in the results? A bit like the Metro game benchmarking tools.

I thought it'd be somewhere in the program, but it just adds an option in the windows screensaver menu.

I posted this on the Linux forums since i did not want to de-rail the thread but wanted to give a heads up =)

Having this working on wine would help checking and testing wine performance on both Linux and MAC users.

Wait, as a Linux user, isn't it up to you to figure out how to get Windows stuff to work?

The screensaver file saves to .../system32/Eve Probe.scr and should show up in the screensaver selectionscreen in Windows.

The screensaver mode is awesome.

However, if you use two screens, the screensaver will stretch over both screens (good) but with the camera center being the middle, e.g. where the two screens intersect. This means that the focused ship will be "cut in half", making it less aesthetically pleasing.

..

What I also request, like others;

Make it possible to run multiple instances somehow (I normally have 2 going).

Also, maybe add a setting to the Probe that says something like: "system setup for gameplay" but then better versed.

When gaming I have all kinds of stuff open on my PC;

- torrent stuff
- video player
- huge excel sheets
- access database
- power tools (synergy, taskmgr, etc)
- browser with huge number of tabs (including massive flash stuff)

Maybe make it possible for us to add that to the log manually when that setting is used for the test.

Mostly the video player and flash would affect the performance since they could have processes running on your GPU. Other than the most obvious that Windows would start swapping because of low memory.

Also, edit is a great thing instead of having c-c-c-c-breakers =)

Hey I've just downloaded and installed the probe on Windows 8.1 and the only thing I see is the launcher with a nice button on the bottom that says "RUNNING!" I've also tried running the probe as administrator but it doesn't give me pretty spaceships or results. What's up with that?
Try opening up the Logserver first. I was having the same problem. Having logserver running seems to have convinced the EVE client to behave.

Done and done.
Though the controltower data seems off.

24fps
versa > 91fps (all others)

24 fps
versa > 93 up to > 100fps

+ the dropped frames on zooms

Does it need eve installed on the same machine?

Because I installed it on a relativly fresh installed notebook with Windows 7 64Bit and after starting eve probe nothing happens. In the taskmanager I can see the process for a few seconds but then it justs closes again.
If I start the screensaver I just get a black screen.

It shouldn't need EVE installed, but we may have messed something up. We'll investigate this.

On my home PC it runs without a problem

When starting EVE Probe all I get are multiple black horizontal lines flickering across my screen. Unfortunately a screenshot didn't capture the effect.

Using the screensaver, I came back after ~6 hours probably, and the screensaver had crashed(CCPexefile has stopped responding)
Caused my PC to lock up for about 15 seconds before it finally went back to my log-in screen.
