Screen freezes during gameplay about every minute

Game mode: [Online | Multiplayer]
Problem: [Crash | Bug | Performance ]
Region: [EU]

After I play for about 5 minutesm my game starts to freeze my screen every minute or two for up to 20 seconds. While my friends have fun slaughtering and enslaving our enemies I have problems moving from point A to B without stepping on a dragon. Don’t get me wrong, I really enjoy this game, but it gets frustrating from time to time to die to a weak fighter just because my game froze. I have about 130GB space on my harddrive, my pc doesn’t overheat and my graphic settings are below the recommendation. The problem appears on atleast on Server (Official Server #1116 - PvP) and in Singleplayer. I tried testing it on another server and after about 10 minutes I had no problems, but since my friends started on the one mentioned above and we played a good amount noone of us is really willing to change the server. Does anyone have a solution for this?


My rig:
AMD FX-8350 8-Core Processor
Nvidia GeForce GTX 970
Win 10

Steps on how to reproduce issue:

  1. Play on Official Server #1116 - PvP
  2. Walk around for 5 Minutes
  3. Get unlucky
  4. Have many, many screen freezes

Neverminde, got it. Please delete this post :slight_smile:

This seems to be an issue for all those people. With mulricore amd cpus… Hope it helps.

Hello all,

This may or may not help other people who have freezing issues with conan, i used to have to turn all sound off completely in order to play this fine game without it lagging/freezing out every minute or so.

I currently have an AMD FX8350 Black edition cpu which has 8 cores and 16gb of ram with a Radeon R9 380 4gb card.

As you can guess i crawled through the entirety of the internet to help me with this issue and finnally found an answer to my issue, it may or may not help others but it is my duty as a felly conanian to help others.

Here goes…

Before you open conan press CTRL ALT and DELETE to open the task manager then click on the details tab and then open conan as you normally would then alt tab out to the task manager and in the details tab look for the conansandbox.exe…right click it and left click on SET AFFINITY and turn off the bottom 4 cores then close the task manager and hopefully you can now play conan as it was meant to be played.

IF this helps please tell others all i know is if i play it without doing this i cant play with any sound on or it will be unplayable.

Please note if this works for you unfortunately you will have to do this everytime you start conan.

Hope it works guys/gals…have fun.
