    Shadows causing FPS drop

    I'm getting quite significant drops in FPS and even sound glitches when there are a lot of shadows - particularly on the straights between Mulsanne and Indianapolis on Circuit de la Sarthe.

    Is there no way to trim down the amount of environment detail like this on the Xbox build?

    Is this in time trials or a race scenario? I've not had a single frame drop that I've noticed since the patch this evening so I'll be happy to test out the same settings.

    To answer your question though, you can turn off a few things in the options but from what has been posted before, they don't make much difference to performance like you'd see on a PC.

    It's in the Time Trial. I'm still not completely happy with my exit out of Mulsanne but I still hit 200 at the braking zone for Indianapolis.

    The FPS drop happens as you pass the trees just before the first right hand kink, it's annoying because if you get that wrong at 170mph+ you're gonna have a bad time. It also ruins your flow as you go into Indianapolis (which is my biggest problem with this "glitch").

    Just tried it out in the Sauber and didn't have any problems. Did you power cycle your xbox after downloading the patch? I did with mine although I don't know if that would make much difference post patch, things have been very smooth for me ever since it installed.

    Nope, but I'll try it again tomorrow as I don't have fast power-on enabled.

    I probably should also mention this is in the Audi R18.
