Why hello there.

Since the past two months we animators had to endure a game breaking bug for us.

We did very very very much testing and it seems like particles, which are on bones that are disabled and triggered on using a gesture nearly always cause incredible lag.

from 90 to 11-30 FPS

Which reaches 1 fps with people around.

BUT THE PROBLEM IS, this is not always the cause.

Sometimes it works without any problems all, sometimes just one particle system brings incredible lag, as tested by a friend. Sometimes triggering a sword causes lag, only a sword. This sword always caused lag, tested on many different avatars.

But another sword never lags.

We just don't know what exactly causes those lags.

BUT THEY STARTED WHEN YOU MADE CHANGES TO THE IK.

Please check your IK again and what you changed, something in there destroys everything for us, acting is not possible anymore and we are all demotivated to even keep animating.

Please Vrchat Staff, hear and help us.
