1) How severe were the stutters?, how often did they happen?, How long did they last?
It's been happening very recently on my end. it happens every 3-10 seconds and lasts for like 0.2 secs.

2) What did you do to fix them, or reduce their frequency?
I haven't come up with a way yet. I hope someone will respond and show me how to fix it.

3) What Operating System & Update version are you using?
I'm using Windows 10 Version 1803 (OS Build 17134.228)

Stutters started a few months ago so I stopped playing for the time. I came back recently and it was fine for a few weeks, but then it started again. Lag doesn't fix no matter what I try. Has there been any word on a universal fix yet?

My problem resolved after disabling the superfetch
Thanks to this thread :D

Same problem here, Just installed Windows 7 64 Bit a couple weeks ago. Also just installed osu! today and stutters are still appearing. I tried VSync, going into windowed mode, but stutters still remain. Also i've noticed how my ms just randomly go up for some reason.

I've been also noticing on how osu! uses about 100% of CPU power so windows explorer just crashes until i close the game. (probably because of my old CPU)

My PC Specs:

NVIDIA GeForce 8400GS 512MB
7GB RAM
AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 3800+
Toshiba 290GB HDD

1) How severe were the stutters?, how often did they happen?, How long did they last?
They were not actually stutters, but I noticed the frame-rate decreased and the input delay/latency increased. They often appeared during the times where streaming and many sliders and circles were displayed on the screen.
2) What did you do to fix them, or reduce their frequency?
I enabled Compatibility Mode, and it worked as it was before (good performance). But the game would minimize itself periodically, other than that it will take time for you to restore osu when minimized.
3) What Operating System & Update version are you using?
Windows 10 1809

I'm also having this problem :\

The stutters happened about every 25 seconds and lasted maybe a little less than 1 second

And I have tried mostly everything in this form post and stuff my friends have told me (reinstall osu, play on a different PC ect) and the only thing that has worked so far is restarting my pc and then when I close out and then relaunch osu it starts lagging again

specs:
i7-8700K Overclocked @5GHz
GTX 1060 3GB GTX 1070 6GB (forgot I upgraded)
20gb DDR4 RAM

Windows 10 Home Build 1803 for x64-based Systems (The latest update I have done is 2018-09 Security Update for Adobe Flash Player for Windows 10 Version 1803 for x64-based Systems (KB4457146))

Edit: My friend has also had this issue but has fixed it with this guide https://www.twitch.tv/videos/170813020, the guide has not worked for me. Here is a clip from the stream my friend was doing https://clips.twitch.tv/ConsiderateScaryOrangeOSfrog and here is a clip of the lag happening for me https://youtu.be/41SPBgZ24UQ

Edit #2: Updating my graphics drivers has fully removed the stutter from it!

Edit #3: nvm it was just because i restarted

Just after the update, my osu has started to stutter if I don't use compatibility mode and have a 1 ms latency if I do. I've tried doing the usual turning off windows inc, changing settings in my gpu, etc but nothing has worked. I've even uninstalled and reinstalled the game and still...nothing.

My specs:
Gpu: AMD Radeon RX550
Cpu: AMD Ryzen 1500X
RAM: 8GB DDR4

Any help would be seriously appreciated!

What update are you referring to? There haven't been any osu! updates in over a month.

its been 3 months since this was posted... can someone inform us if you guys are still even working on this?

Okay, so i fixed the stuttering. What i did is that i had an older version of osu! backed up on my drive, and fired that up. After a couple of updates, stutters were gone.

Anyone with older versions of osu! backed up somewhere should try this.

I don't know if anyone will see this but I managed to fix this problem by:

- Opening osu!
- Going to Task Manager
- Right-clicking the process and clicking "Go to details"
- Set priority > Below normal

This lowers the memory allocated to osu! (and somehow fixes the stuttering). If that doesn't work,
try:

- Going into Control Panel > System Security > System
- Going into Advanced System Settings > Performance Settings > Advanced
- Lowering the initial and maximum size of my paging file

This changes the amount of memory your computer uses. If you want to run any or multiple programs that need more memory to run than the amount you set as your max, you won't be able to.

Thats strange... for some reason when i do the same but set it to "Real Time" it fixes stuttering

If anyone else sees this then try to set it to every different option and see if that fixes the stutter

Includes video evidence


1) The stutters are always severe enough to affect gameplay, typically last less than a second. They happen constantly for me. I have attached puush links to several videos I've captured of the stuttering (pardon the potato quality and poor skills). These stutters seem to have gotten worse within the past month. My last windows update was ‎5/‎30/‎2018, so it's not that.

2) I have tried many of these approaches, but none of them seem to solve it for me. I've found that restarting my computer works for a little bit to minimize it at least, but that locking/unlocking windows seems to exacerbate the issue... I've disabled windows update, superfetch, antivirus, the windows 10 information gobbler (DiagTrack), stopped all non-OS background processes, and the issue is 100% repeatable for me by simply locking/unlocking windows a few times and then starting osu!. It also happens if I never let my machine lock itself, but then it is less predictable. I don't experience the issue using any other programs or media playback, only osu!.

3) Windows 10 pro, 1803. Full system config can be found on my profile if you're interested.

Here's a 2 minute gameplay capture featuring several stutters: https://puu.sh/BLIS3/372be8ef2f.m4v.
And here are some shorter clips in case that one gets lost:
Major stutter at 20 seconds in: http://puu.sh/BLJ0c/38d8938840.mp4
Minor stutter at 18 seconds in: http://puu.sh/BLIX1/83cc5d029d.m4v

Edit: More info
My network.log contains lots of entries like this, not sure if it's related since it only has entries for one timestamp and the stutters are much more frequent

Thats strange... for some reason when i do the same but set it to "Real Time" it fixes stuttering

If anyone else sees this then try to set it to every different option and see if that fixes the stutter
and/or disable your recording software

turning off superfetch worked for me, however now the cursor is dragging behind...also the framerate and latency don't get better as i increase the fps limit: it stays at 120fps and 8.5ms :/

Includes video evidence


1) The stutters are always severe enough to affect gameplay, typically last less than a second. They happen constantly for me. I have attached puush links to several videos I've captured of the stuttering (pardon the potato quality and poor skills). These stutters seem to have gotten worse within the past month. My last windows update was ‎5/‎30/‎2018, so it's not that.

2) I have tried many of these approaches, but none of them seem to solve it for me. I've found that restarting my computer works for a little bit to minimize it at least, but that locking/unlocking windows seems to exacerbate the issue... I've disabled windows update, superfetch, antivirus, the windows 10 information gobbler (DiagTrack), stopped all non-OS background processes, and the issue is 100% repeatable for me by simply locking/unlocking windows a few times and then starting osu!. It also happens if I never let my machine lock itself, but then it is less predictable. I don't experience the issue using any other programs or media playback, only osu!.

3) Windows 10 pro, 1803. Full system config can be found on my profile if you're interested.

Here's a 2 minute gameplay capture featuring several stutters: https://puu.sh/BLIS3/372be8ef2f.m4v.
And here are some shorter clips in case that one gets lost:
Major stutter at 20 seconds in: http://puu.sh/BLJ0c/38d8938840.mp4
Minor stutter at 18 seconds in: http://puu.sh/BLIX1/83cc5d029d.m4v

I tried the process priority on low and realtime and neither helped the stutters for me. I don't play with recording software, that was just so I could capture the issue. By the way, when I say I killed all non-OS background processes, I meant everything. Antivirus, backups, remote sessions, vms, adobe, afterburner, puush, etc etc.

I am starting to suspect this issue is network-related because it seems much more prevalent on the weekends than during the week, and my internet speeds/latency are much worse on weekends (as well as the osu servers). Anyone else notice this?


Edit: I'm not really sure why, but increasing the priority of the RTC on windows 10 seemed to get rid of the stutters for the most part. Open up the registry (regedit)
HKLM/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Control/PriorityControl
Modify or create a DWORD called "IRQ8Priority" and set its value to 1.
This tweak may require a restart to affect anything

This sets the interrupt request 8 (IRQ8) to have the highest priority (1) of any interrupt on your system. You can set priorities as 1 for highest priority, 2 for second highest, etc. IRQ8 is the Real Time Clock (RTC), which is the clock that pretty much every program uses as a reference point to sync network events (server communication, etc). If you want a listing of all the IRQs on YOUR system (values after 13 are specific to your hardware, drivers, etc), type "System Information" into the start menu and look under Hardware Resources -> IRQs.

I fixed my problem by disabling shower effect, if you have it ON, try turning it off.

I have the same problem with lag spikes but non of these things helped me, I have clean win 10 64bit installation with drivers all are up to date. I also tried to move it from HDD to SSD but it did not help. (I moved it back to HDD after it did not help) Can someone help me?
