I searched around a bit and I assume this is a common issue, but no solution has been posted.
About 30-50% of the time when I load into zones it doesn’t load me in. I close the game, start it up again, log in, and then I am fine. It is just an inconvenience and I am wondering if it can be fixed, or anyone knows a quick solve. Sometimes is doesn’t do it for a whole night. Sometime it does it 50% of the time during a night. The loading bar doesn’t show and I am seen as frozen in the zone I load into.
I use the 3rd setting in the logging options.
I’ll keep checking this thread if anyone has follow up questions.
Just wanted to get a little bit more information. What settings are you running in game (low standard high ultra), what is comp. specs, where are you located, are you using wifi for computer, anything else might find relevant. (you can PM all of this to me or Riley if you want instead of posting here). Sorry your having these problems and thank you for posting.
Location: Northern Alberta Canada. Fort McMurray
OS: x64 Windows
Internet Connection: Lan Line through router and modem
VR Headset: Vive
Let me know if you need more information. I sent output log to Riley.
I know a lot of people have this issue. If you see the person zone in and they are frozen they end up saying “I have to restart” in discord. It isn’t game breaking, just annoying sometimes when you are trying to do fast runs.
Like others I have issues and it seems to go on if your having a good day or a bad day in terms of how many times it will freeze on a loading screen. I used to play music in the background on chrome and found it would freeze almost 90% of the time but i stopped doing that and have more success but still like others it can be 30 - 50% of loading screens freeze.
We haven’t changed anything that we think would affect that, we did reboot the server but I don’t think that was before the first night. Definitely keep us posted if you notice what the cause could be.
You can always try those out, at this point we don’t really have any hints about it - I’m not sure if it’s the exact same issue, but we did get someone emailing us back and forth about a similar issue and they ended up saying that it was an audio driver problem causing it. Unfortunately they didn’t go into details about how they fixed it.
Audio driver problem. Wow. Okay. Next time I try to trouble shoot this I will disable all audio devices and also make sure everything is updated too. I’ll just keep messing with settings. That fact it just stopped for two days is so odd in my opinion.
Regardless, really appreciate the response from the devs. Even if there is only minimal headway on fixing it.
100% can agree with that, the ppl I play with that are on Oculus never have this issue. Does anyone have this issue on the Oculus? Some people may have the game crash once in awhile on Oculus, but in this thread we are talking about the game consistently hanging when loading in, I’m not sure if it is even crashing.
Edit - You can buy the game with Oculus via two different means correct? Is one of those options the SteamVR client? If so, is there anyone that uses the Oculus with SteamVR and has the issue? That may narrow it down…
