These are the steps you can follow to improve your FPS and Lag Issues In-Game: 1) Validate your game files from Steam Right-click on Euro Truck Simulator 2 from Steam Select Properties Click on the LOCAL FILES tab Click on VERIFY INTEGRITY OF GAME CACHE Press CLOSE once the validation process is finished. You will be told whether any files had to be reacquired or not. 2) Update Graphics Driver Nvidia users: Nvidia Drivers [www.geforce.com] Click on Auto detect your GPU AMD users: AMD Drivers [support.amd.com] Click Download Now where it says Automatically detect and install Intel HD users: Intel Drivers [www.intel.com] 3) Delete programs you never use It's a good idea to uninstall all the programs you don't plan to use. This should include both manufacturer-installed software and software you installed yourself but don't want any more—especially utility programs designed to help manage and tune your computer's hardware and software. Utility programs such as virus scanners, disk cleaners, and backup tools often run automatically at startup, quietly chugging along in the background where you can't see them. Many people have no idea they're even running. 4) Disabling startup programs and services Many programs are designed to start automatically when Windows starts. Software manufacturers often set their programs to open in the background, where you can't see them running, so they'll open right away when you click their icons. That's helpful for programs you use a lot, but for programs you rarely or never use, this wastes precious memory and slows down the time it takes Windows to finish starting up. Right-click on your taskbar Select Task Manager Click on Start-up tab Check what programs are listed. Windows will rate their Start-up impact for you Right-click to disable unnecessary programs Note: Avoid disabling important stuff like graphic or audio drivers. Programs such as Apple and Adobe products can typically be disabled without worry though. 5) Defragment your hard disk Defragmenting sorts your files into a more intuitive order for mechanical hard drives so that the needle doesn’t have to jump around as much, which can reduce loading speeds. You should only do this if you are running Windows and your game off of traditional mechanical hard drives. If you are using an SSD, do not attempt to defragment it. Your loading performance will already be excellent and defragmenting will only reduce your drives lifespan to no benefit. Steps may vary slightly between different versions of Windows, but should be obvious. Go to Computer/This PC Right-click on C: Select Properties Click on the Tools tab Under Optimise and defragment drive press Optimise Select the appropriate drive and click on Optimise. (This may take a while but can be stopped and resumed freely.) 6) Power options Open Windows start menu, search "Power Options" and press enter. Select "High Performance" power plan in the window that just opened. If you are using laptop make sure it is plugged into power outlet, don't play on laptop's battery. 7) Check for viruses and spyware If your PC is running slowly, it's possible that it's infected with a virus/spyware or Junk files. This is not as common as the other problems, but it's something to consider. Before you worry too much, check your PC using anti-spyware/antivirus programs and Junk cleaners Malwarebytes CCleaner [ Please, Comment if you have any other solutions that may help ] -
