There shouldn't be such a massive change between 3.2 and 3.3, though.
Can you do some 'bench' dumps from an affected scene? Maybe that gives some clues.

open the console, type 'bind b bench' (or any other key if you do not want to use 'b'), then make a savegame at a place where this slowdown happens, load it into both engines and press 'b'. A file named benchmarks.txt will be saved. Post that here.

This remark is completely disingenuous and omits some very important things.

Your computer is too old to use a 2018 program that happens to play a 1993 game.

You can still use doom.exe to play a 1993 game on a 1993 computer.

Yes yes sorry, it was a joke... :oops:
I know GZDoom is a modern (and very well done program).
I didn't want to be impolite with people who create this masterpiece.

The strange thing here is, that nothing in there suggests such a performance hit, the map basically contains nothing and even the increased vertex count due to the new approach is nowhere near problematic.

maybe my computer was just at the limit it can bear with 3.2.5...
and maybe the updates added in new versions were the "liitle thing" that bring me some lags.

Hard to believe. If this was a map that actually performed some real work that might be the case.
Just out of curiosity: How does this system handle some real maps? Although your card is relatively weak by today's standards it's not that bad for an old game like Doom. Something must have changed in GZDoom to affect this particular system this badly and I have no idea what it is or whether it may affect others too.

by real maps, can we say the Hunter's Moon maps ?
that is real heavy work for my CPU... but it works well when no monster run somewhere.
just a little lag.
Hunter's Moon map + Hunter's Moon weapons and monsters... and there, i'm reaching the limits of my CPU.

I spend hours searching for settings that can help but nothing.
But I have fullspeed when using software rendering. :?

So now I have two folders, one for my 3.2.5 and other one for new versions.
