Elden Ring frame rate stutters

Elden Ring controller not working
What to do: The solution that worked for us was to remove Vjoy, the virtual joystick program from our Windows applications. Installed Vjoy seems to be the usual culprit. You can also try these other Elden Ring controller fixes, including checking your Steam controller settings to enable “Xbox Configuration Support” or “Generic Gamepad Configuration Support”.
Elden Ring performance issues
In addition to frame rate issues, players experience other performance issues such as crashes and screen tearing. A fair number of players are having issues that were found to be “mixed” in user reviews on Elden Ring’s launch day on Steam. FromSoftware has stated that it will work on additional performance fixes.
“We will constantly work to improve the game so that it can be played comfortably in various computer environments and on various platforms. For the PC version, updating your graphics card drivers to the latest version can greatly improve performance.”
What to do: Pending new official fixes, make sure your graphics drivers are up to date as recommended by FromSoftware. You can also follow our guide on how to fix screen tearing in Elden Ring with Vsync settings.
