Frequently Freezing.

I got this game last week, and I love the idea behind it. but i am not able to enjoy the gameplay. any game mode I try to play I get extreme lag, every 45 - 60 seconds the game will freeze for about a second. (Usually triggered by a graphical update such as a bricktron setting down planks or a stockpile of stone turning into bricks. "I think" ) This is still playable in my opinion, but once i've been playing for an hour or two, and i've built up an army of bricktrons and have built some structures, the lag gets worse . . . Much worse, where my game will freeze for up to 2 or 3 seconds, every 15 - 20 seconds. when a wave comes in invasion mode, starting around wave 15, the lag is so bad that i have to stop playing. my fps goes down to about 20 and it lags every 10 - 15 seconds for up to 5 seconds.

Great Griffin.

    Hey Great-Griffin,

    If you could send me your zipped up save folder, it would help me figure out what exactly is going on and forward it to the dev working on optimization.

  • do I just post it to the forum?

    Yeah that would be fine, right here. :)

    Hey Great-Griffin,

    I actually loaded both Jordan and Devon's savefiles on my side didn't see any issue - good FPS and rarely the odd lag spike.

    I'm going to need more information about your computer to figure out what's going wrong. Can you please give me your complete PC specs?

    If you're not sure how, the easiest way is to download Speccy, a completely free software that will display all the information about your computer in a window so you can either send us a picture of it, or type the information out. :)

    When you open Speccy, you don't need to click on anything in the window. You'll be in the correct tab (Summary) by default. Just wait a few seconds while it fetches the information about your machine.

    You can get the free version of Speccy here:

    Hey Great-Griffin, I forwarded this to our devs and I've been told your specs are good enough to run the game and that it sounds like a garbage collection issue - we're working on fixes for this as we speak and hopefully will have a patch out soon.
