Random Freezing



  • For some reason I keep getting random freezing, even though my ping stays around 50-100 and I have a solid 60 fps. Help?



  • Attach a DxDiag.txt



  • Here you go



  • Well the DxDiag doesn’t show anything bad. Do you have a virus scanner or anything else running in the background?

    I have Avast. I guess I could try disabling it.

    Please try that! Don’t forget to reenable when you’re done (assuming that that works)!

    Didn’t work. I also tried verifying the game catch, but no luck.



  • What kind of freezing is it? How long does it last? Anyway to grab video of it and throw that on the YouTubes?

    I freeze for about 1/2 a second, then the game continues. Whatever I was trying to do before the freeze still happens as well. It’s like I keep skipping forward in time. One second I am thrusting my lance, the next I am 2 feet to the left with an axe in my head. I would make a video, but FRAPS takes a huge toll on the frame rate.



  • Sounds like a microstuttering issue, maybe?

    Does it still happen with every graphic setting and resolution on the lowest value?



  • I believe my problem is the same, I get all 3-5 seconds a very short freeze FPS are normal and it happens also if i play with lowest settings, got the same problem in Battlefield 3

    Yes



  • What are your settings in your Nvidia Control Panel under Manage 3D Settings? Have you tweaked any of those away from default?

    I put them back to default. Didn’t work.



  • I’m starting to think that it is a network related thing, like you’re dropping packets. What’s your internet setup? Do you have a router? Are you connected to it by an ethernet cable or wifi? Or are you directly connected to your modem? What kind of internet connection and ISP provider?

    Edit:
    Also, I think this is your motherboard (please confirm). Try downloading the driver updates for your soundcard and LAN. http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3849#dl

    I am connected to a router with a cable, and i’m not sure what speed of internet connection, though it’s cable. ISP? Also, yes that is my motherboard, and what updates do I choose for sound? Both?

    Edit: I forgot to mention the fact that this only happens with this game

    I see only one for Sound/Audio:

    Realtek Function driver for Realtek Azalia audio chip (Including Microsoft UAA Driver in English edition)	R2.70	109.88 MB	2012/10/04	Asia China America Europe Europe(Russia) : FTP / Http
    

    Do you mean LAN? LAN should be the 2nd one:

    Realtek LAN Driver	7.049.0927.2011	3.48 MB	2012/03/21	Asia China America Europe Europe(Russia) : FTP / Http
    


  • OK, I installed the updates and two extra ones from windows update. I accidentally installed both LAN updates, though. I hope that’s OK. Now, however, the game won’t even start. I try to launch the game, and it say UDK.exe has stopped working. I can’t catch a break, can I.

    Edit: ok, I validated the games catch and it works now. Will see if the freezing has stopped.

    Haha don’t scare me like that! Fingers crossed!



  • I’ve seen this problem occur when there’s actual microlag in between components on a system.
    Various things could be the source of the problem, it’s hard to pinpoint. Driver issues. Codec issues.
    Hardware faults. Incompatibility between components. Bad memory sticks.
