Alt Tab Freezes Game


#1

My friends wanted to know how my game was going, so I alt tab to use Discord and tell them.

Game freezes and I have to end the process with windows task manager.

I have the game running in windowed borderless so this doesn’t even make any sense to me.

This has happened multiple times:
in menus
when loading RIGHT AFTER STARTING THE GAME
in fights

This ruins the experience of playing a game for me. With the long game startup times (all the intro videos) it really is bumming me out.

For me it does not freeze but it takes a long time to get back into the game after a detour to the desktop.

This is a known issue and it’s being worked on :slight_smile:

Just so I know, what hardware are you using?

I’ve found it doesn’t actually freeze forever. It just sits for awhile so that is cool.

I’m really looking forward to some expansions for this game as it seems perfect for expanding on.

You guys seem to have weird behavior on FX 8xxx chips from what I’ve read.

Maybe it’s a flag for some optimization or sleep state that is not compatible with AMD FX-8xxx chips.

Hi Guys, this is fixed in the beta branch patch I pushed out on Friday.

We will put out a solid patch for the main branch early next week.

Thanks!
