If the editor is running at a lower fps there is very noticeable input delay that wasn't present in 4.27.2.
Seems to work correctly while playing in Stand Alone or Packaged.
To quote an engine user:
This occurs for our product in PIE, with input being delayed and then slowly played back up to 3-4 seconds late. It compounds over time by providing consistent input (move forward with the W key, move camera with mouse). Once input is played back, the delay is gone until consistent input is provided again. I am getting ~15 FPS.
Debugging the input stack, it looks like UE is not receiving the input on time. FWindowsPlatformApplicationMisc::PumpMessages does not return the new messages on time. I confirmed this with Spy++, and see input messages being retrieved from the windows input queue delayed. That message retrieval timing matches when I see the movement actually applied to my character, so I do not think there is significant delay within Unreal itself.
Best I can tell, PumpMessages is being called from the main thread and should pull all messages from the queue in a loop. I've been unable to track down how that input processing is behind while frames are still processing.
Would love to hear any suggestions of workarounds, as this is fairly impactful for testing. Thanks!
The character and camera stop immediately.
The character and camera continue to move for a brief time.
There's no existing public thread on this issue, so head over to Questions & Answers just mention UE-144238 in the post.
