Every time I press the 'period' key, the frame rate drops to red (monitored by toggling 'stat fps' in the console). Before you boggle about my use of 'period', I use a dvorak keyboard and 'period' is where the 'e' key is. In any case, pressing the 'period' key causes this drop, what's the deal yo?

  • Is the key bound to anything in the game?

  • It's bound to 'move forward'.

Hah, I figured it out. Posting here in case anyone else has the same issue.

The UDKGame.ini file ..\Documents\my games\Chivalry Medieval Warfare\UDKGame\Config had this line in it:

Bindings=(Name="Period",SecondaryKey=,Command="GBA_MoveForward;RECOMPILESHADERS CHANGED",Control=False,Shift=False,Alt=False,bIgnoreCtrl=False,bIgnoreShift=False,bIgnoreAlt=False,Flag="KBFlag_Movement",FriendlyName="MoveForward")

Removed the 'RECOMPILESHADERS CHANGED' part and now it doesn't do that anymore. Hurray for hidden bindings!
