I’ve been playing this game since 2008 with longer breaks in between. I’ve lately come back after 3 years to see how things are atm. I used to play this game on much worse hardware, than I have currently and I was able to play on very high settings and I would only turn world particles off during raids. Never have I had any stability issues, except for the classic errors, we’d all been accustomed to. The gameplay was smooth.
I logged in yesterday. I was at the trader. I wasn’t even running. I was just browsing the trader, my inventory, nothing special. Something I’ve done hundreds of times before on a worse hardware with same settings on full hd. Yesterday I had multiple slowdowns to a point, the game became unresponsive. My pc crashed 3 times and I was forced to make a hard reboot. I lowered the resolution to 1080p again, disabled shadows, lowered view distance, then dx 10 to dx 9 ( something I had never done on pc with gtx 280, gtx 295, gtx 8800 ) and now that I have 1070gtx, a system which is way ahead of system requirements, I can’t play this game at all, as it keeps crashing, or slows to a halt, freezes for 2 minutes and then let’s go for a while.
Then I went for a walk in conarch and the Fps was dropping to 15. I couldn’t even turn the camera, without it jumping around.
Wth has happened? Are you also experiencing this? Every other game like Witcher 3 for example runs smoothly on very high settings. I don’t have any issues with other games.
Is there anything in the settings that causes this?
I’d love to give this game another try, but I can’t even browse through my wares, let alone run around. Wth is going on?
