Issues fixed[edit]

Stuttering[edit]

Player model is tied to physics, which runs at 50fps (your monitor works at still runs only ~60/120/144 FPS). This produces consistent micro-stutter, which makes the game feel like it s running at 20fps, even if it is running at 200+fps. A player made mod detaches camera from player model, making the whole game run much smoother.
Windows version only.
Install smooth camera mod[4]
  1. Download Smooth Camera files.
  2. Go to <path-to-game>\DeadCore_Data\Managed\.
  3. Backup Assembly-CSharp.dll.
  4. Copy in downloaded files and start the game.

Notes

You can manually change smoothing value by opening the in game console with ~ and type in sc_smooth_amount and desired value. Default value is 0.015. This may have some undesired effects.
