High CPU usage with Bolt 1.4

Neutron7 2 years ago updated by mensch.mueller 2 years ago 6

With Bolt 1.4, I am experiencing very high CPU usage (100%+) even when idling in a Bolt project.  Is this due to Live Editing feature?  Can I turn this off or anyone has any idea how to reduce this super high CPU usage?  I am getting 108 deg C on my iMac GPU.  I tested with another Unity project without Bolt, there is no high CPU usage issue.  Thanks.

Hi Neutron7!

That shouldn't happen, especially not after the initial unit loading (shown at the bottom right corner of the editor in a progress bar).

If it persists, can you please open the Unity Profiler, check Profile Editor, and send a screenshot of the data you're getting?

Hi Lazlo, thanks for the reply.  Attached are the screenshots.  I am running Lesson #8 in your tutorial series and have been noticing CPU spikes since Bolt 1.4.  Hopefully you can help resolve this because Bolt is a nice tool so far.  On another note: do you think it is a great idea to just use FSMs from Bolt and for other parts use C#?  Thanks.

The screenshots were taken *not* in playmode, ie just in edit mode, thanks

Noticed the same behavior on my MacBook! When working with Unity/Bolt the charger has always to be connected!
