View Full Version : Kinect?

23-06-2015, 03:30
Any possibility disconnecting Kinect could affect the smoothness if the game in anyway? Has anyone experimented?

I don't know if I am on to something or the game just happens to be in a good mood right now.

If anything helped it was probably killing power to the console to disconnect it and thus doing a hard reset. :)

Yeah and the hard reset worked once before. I played for a while, opened YouTube for awhile. Exited youtube, tried project cars again and the whole thing was laggy. Did the hard reset, and it was still laggy. Did hard reset again and disconnected kinect and running ok. Like I said, it could just be in a good mood.

Well, Kinect voice processing is done in the XB1's 7th core, which pCARS also shares, so it might help.

Well I'll test it out for awhile and share my results. Haven't seen anyone mention it before so I figured I'd ask. Who needs the kinect anyway? Might as well just Skype with the NSA whIle I play, amiright?

I raised the question of Kinect sharing the 7th core a couple of days ago, but don't know if SMS have any opinion on whether it could cause performance problems.

Kinect is useless i have it connected but never use it!

On rare occasion I tell it "xbox turn off" that's about it. :)

Iv had mine taken out for about 5 days now with no real issues. But last night i got the stutter and freeze deal.

Since I have disconnected it I have not had to do hard restart yet, even after *gasp* opening and closing any other app. Game still has minor glitches and stutters in frame rate and audio although not obnoxiously frequent at the moment.

Unrelatedly, finished first couple championships in 125cc kart career. Race engineer was silent in all races except dubai autodrome. He works fine I guess in other normal races I've tried, but not the 125cc kart racea

Looking forward to cortana

With the upcoming dashboard revamp the kinect looks like it
will become important, but as it stands now it's awkward.

As regards PCars, if the game has no kinect functionality then it's completely useless and If it solves issues people have a choice to make, disconnect it or not
