        It's an AMD issue (I'm on Ryzen 7 5800X and 6800XT) from what I've seen on the Steam forums. Atlus doesn't give a shit. They're too busy cashing in on P5R.

          I don't think they give a shit about P5R either
          As I said, the game has extreme slowdowns in crowds despite the crowd models being very low quality even on the highest settings
          I suspect the slowdowns are not primarily caused by hardware issues, as I've heard people fix them through various means
          Atlus doesn't give a shit, period, even when they charge full prices for a game
          I did play the game at launch, but the slowdowns were a decent issue as it affects significant parts of the overworld and several rooms in palaces, they shouldn't be in the game at launch

          If it's an AMD issue have you tried playing P4G with DXVK? That would probably help. Anyway they're updating P4G and changing the 32-bit structure to 64 and fixing a bunch of other stuff, so they'll hopefully fix that as well.

        What frame rate are you getting in kichijoji at night? I get 50 ish with a laptop 1660ti.
        If your frame rate is similar it’s definitely an optimization issue in that area

          I don't have the numbers, but I doubt it was more than 30-40, you noticed it didn't run smoothly
          I could run without lag, but I noticed something was wrong
          Kichijoji is hardly the worst area anyway, the game occasionally stuttered in other areas
          Which is insane because everything is perfectly smooth and maxed out
          I'm not saying my PC is the best, but surely you agree than a 3070 and a 10700k should be able to run persona 5 at a decent framerate even in crowds?
          I've heard of people with worse specs than me having no problems whatsoever and people with better specs than me struggling as well
          The game runs normally if I turned my back to the people, which I definitely noticed in the final palace's large stadium room
          I assume there is something fucky going on

            10700 and 3070 should run this game at 120 locked always.
            I felt the new areas added in royal tended to have worse framerates.

            My laptops a 4800H 1660ti, I get 100+ in most places. Station square drops to 72fps, kichijoji 50, true final palace 55-60.

            I suppose there is optimisation to be done here

    4 has a better story but 5 has objectively better gameplay

    • 3 weeks ago
      Anonymous

      It has better gameplay, everyone agrees, but that doesn't make it better as a whole
      Especially because the game doesn't take advantage of its better gameplay
      Towards the end of the game, I just used thermopylae, debilitate, charge, concentrate and wailed away at the enemy ignoring weaknesses and technicals
      The only things that make you think are the NG+ battles that most people won't ever see and the challenge battles in the velvet room
      The gameplay is definitely good though
      If you go back and play Persona 3 FES after P5R you will notice how much the games have improved, it's crazy
      But the gameplay is only a part of the game
      P5R has a mind-numbingly bad story mired with constant interruptions, constant repetition, lazy copouts and too long of a runtime
      The main cast is bad, they don't have any chemistry with each other and most of them could be cut out without changing anything
      They feel like a bunch of people forced to work together, which can work, but the game pretends like they are friends when they are clearly not
      The cast bonding moments are worse than in P4G and that doesn't help the lack of chemistry
      We don't see them hanging out with each other like in P3 either
      The story has no stakes from Kamoshida until Shido
      We don't care about any of the targets and the overall goal of changing society is directionless and boring
      The culprit could be interesting, but he's okay at best
      Shido knows about cognitive psience, but can't defend his palace in any meaningful way or go to the metaverse? What the fuck is the point of the research and subplot then?
      And then there are the positively godawful moments of futaba being a superhacker and the plan to save joker

              Remember: the people that Akechi popped there were cognitions. They weren't even proper shadows, meaning offing them affected exactly nothing in the real world.

              Literally, as far as the police were concerned Ren/Joker was just moved, because Shido pulled some strings. Whereas Akechi, being sent in on Shido's orders, was under the impression he had popped Ren and someone would follow up by cleaning up the mess and making the whole case 'disappear' without further media attention.

                Akechi didnt know that,nor did anyone involved in their plan, as far as they know there should be 2 bodies in the interrogation cell that need being taken care of. Sae wasnt in on their plan, so she couldnt just pop in and say, yeah i took care of the bodies.

                The guard being popped was collateral damage.

                As far as Akechi was concerned, someone would come in to clean up his mess.
                As far as the guy coming in to clean the mess was concerned; hey, apparently the kid took care of it cleanly. Great. No ask; no tell. Easy money.

                I do appreciate the effort needed to make Joker's big escape from prison somewhat coherent, but you gotta admit that there's a lot of convenient handwaves needed for the escape to work. Since we are on the topic about the cognitions disappearing, there's no way they could've controlled the disappearance of the cognitive guard's body. We have to accept that the body politely waited for Akechi to reveal his true colours, shoot Joker, and then leave before it began dissolving.

                Cognitions aren't shadows. Cognitions don't dissolve.
                As long as someone strongly enough believes that there should be a dead guard there, then there'll be a dead guard there.
                And that someone is, at the very least, Akechi himself.

                Which is also why cognitive Ren acts like a completely derptastic moron surprised to have a gun pointed at his face.
                Because that's what Akechi thinks Ren would act like.

                No. The Phantom Thieves in particular mention that there's an entire cognitive Metaverse out there, outside of Sae's distorted palace.
                Just like there was an entire cognitive Metaverse out there of the outlying area around Shujin Academy, when Ryuji and Ren first accidentally slipped into the metaverse without ever noticing it. (Which is what gave them the idea to do it to Akechi, in the first place.)

                >Cognitions don't dissolve

                ?t=1987

                Cognitions don't dissolve. As long as someone is still present with that particular cognition; as has been mentioned.
                I.e. as soon as Akechi leaves the general area; the dead guard and Ren cognitions leave with him.

                I remember PT specifically saying that Akechi was killing Joker in Sae's Palace. Not everyone's mementos-style shared space, in her Palace. That's why they needed HER to interrogate Joker, so she has a proper cognition of him in that room.

                Their entire plan hinges on not stealing Sae's treasure so that her Palace remains and can be used to trick Akechi.

                The location of Sae’s palace is the courthouse. The interrogation room is part of the courthouse (Makoto confirmed this prior to the plan as it hinges on Sae’s cognition) and therefore cognitive beings there are a result of Sae’s cognition. When Ryuji and joker first entered the metaverse it was in Kamoshida’s palace. The world around the palace was normal looking because Kamoshida’s cognition of everywhere else was normal.

                No, cognitive joker and cognitive Akechi are both extremely weak because Sae doesn’t think of them as any more than teenagers. One of the crucial points of their plan was dealing with cognitive Akechi which only worked because Sae didn’t know what Akechi was really like.

      I spend a significant amount of time playing these games as well, I'm not just here for the social sim
      I fuse 100% of the compendium and etc etc
      But the story overshadows the gameplay, sadly, because you have to sit through so much of it
      With bad gameplay you can still enjoy yourself to a degree since you at least are in control, but with a bad story you have to sit there and take it
      A bad game is much more tolerable than a bad book or bad tv show
      Anyway, think of it like this
      P4G's gameplay isn't terrible, and the story is better
      P5R's gameplay is good, but the story is terrible

      imo you're better off with a fresh save. NG+ is baby mode easy regardless of the difficulty you select because you keep all of your inventory, and persona registry. even if you want to intentionally handicap yourself, you're bank account will have millions so the upgrades and purchasing is trivialized.

          >NG+ is baby mode easy regardless of the difficulty you select
          Even the hardest one? I had a pretty good time on hard, only getting like 5 hours worth of retries on some bosses total. By "you keep your inventory" do you mean materials or weapons as well? Because having 300+ dmg weapons in Kamoshida's Palace would be busted. I don't want to risk a clean save if by the end of a 100 hour run it turns out I fucked up time management again somehow and still didn't reach my goal.
          Also are the final Personas (unlocked by 10 rank confidants) level 100 or something? I've finished the game at 85-ish and I haven't seen one of them in fusing by results.

          yeah I started NG+ on max difficulty and was disappointed how easy it was.

          almost everything and it's as unbalanced as it sounds. iirc there are some consumables you don't keep. but weapons, fused will seeds, you keep it all. also your social rank stuff will be still be maxed out, so you don't have to spend time on that. meaning a lot of days there's nothing worth doing.
          I think there are new personas? I forget but there's something additional unlocked. I wasn't having fun so I didn't get very far in. idk maybe you will have fun if you enjoy the additional personas.

        >NG+ is baby mode easy regardless of the difficulty you select
        Even the hardest one? I had a pretty good time on hard, only getting like 5 hours worth of retries on some bosses total. By "you keep your inventory" do you mean materials or weapons as well? Because having 300+ dmg weapons in Kamoshida's Palace would be busted. I don't want to risk a clean save if by the end of a 100 hour run it turns out I fucked up time management again somehow and still didn't reach my goal.
        Also are the final Personas (unlocked by 10 rank confidants) level 100 or something? I've finished the game at 85-ish and I haven't seen one of them in fusing by results.

              For those, you'll need a fusion calculator I guess. Either that or you could observe that those arcanas with non-advanced final personas are usually those that can be ranked up via fusions with treasure personas, so you could simply fuse your way up by resummoning the treasure personas.

      I'm getting an uncanny valley feeling while listening to P5 vocal tracks. The singers (Lyn I think it was) makes a damn good job pretending she's signing in proper english. It's like a step above Japanglish, but my brain still refuses to make sense of the words and I need subs to understand it.
      For example the "I'm a shAPshifter" pronounciationg instead of 'shapeshifter' in Beneath the Mask.

          Strikers is a continuation of the original P5, but is still compatible with P5R in general lines. It makes no mention of Sumire, however the ending of P5R has her go international and leaving Japan for a longer time meaning her abscence would at least be explainable with some minor wrangling and handwaving.

          Also; the Musou real-time battlesystem that Strikers uses, fits Persona to a tee and gameplay wise it goes down like a fine wine. If anything I'd hope mainline Persona 6 would adopt it while retaining the fully fleshed out concepts of confidants/social links/etc. as well as the more advanced persona fusion mechanics of a main title. It just works ssooooo--- much better than 4-guys-in-a-row.

              Musou-like. No huge crowds. You traverse the Metaverse like in mainline P5(R), but when you encounter an enemy a small battle area forms and shadows spawn there in small waves of 5~10.

              The actual combat mechanics are Musou-style with light/heavy ground/aerial attacks; combo-chaining; juggling; time-freeze finishers; etc. (Actually; this is where Showtime attacks originate from.)

      I won't convert it to dollars since that wouldn't be accurate, but I think you can see it anyway
      P5R is 599kr and P5S is 659kr, which the highest price you can pay for a brand-new AAA game
      That's over 60 dollars for a game from 2016 that's also been on steam for quite some time

      Compare how much screen time Sumire gets in the main story prior to the third semester to Marie prior to Adachi’s deadline. She’s already jammed in more than her.

      I mean; that's pretty cool. The pathing logic even temporarily sends Makoto straight down the corridor you were originally walking as a feint, before she doubles back and closes the distance again. Someone on the development staff actually put the effort in to make the pathing logic do that intentional overshoot thingy, when they COULD have just rubberbanded her to Ren directly.

    P5 has higher sales and scores across the board by game critics and players alike. P5R is easily one if the best games ever made. P4 is for literally trannies. Played it once and never touched it again. P5 on the other hand have already beaten it 4 times.
