DBD causing pc to lag/freeze
Step 1 : Boot the game
Step 2 : Play as survivor in a public match
Step 3 : play normal gameplay
Step 4 : game becomes slow and laggy. PC also goes slow and laggy. Even after closing DBD my PC continues to go slow
Additionally - today i was sat in the pre lobby screen spending BP and it happened. So I dont need to be in game for it to happen. Just having the game running is enough
- Any means necessary, Windows, Blast Mine, Distortion
- Frequency of the issue - so often it seems all the time - today it happened from 5pm
I have over 1k hours into the game on my Pc and have played DBD for a long time.
Since the event ended on 6/11/23 I have experienced my game becoming extremely lagging/freezing, which also causes my PC to completely slow down , where it does not recognise any button presses from my mouse or keyboard for a very long time. I have to restart my PC to get it back to normal.
This is not happening when playing any other game so it must be a bug on DBD's side.
I have searched through the bug logs and i cannot see one logged. There is mention of it on the steam
community hub of people having the same issue.
I dont know what i can give you to demonstrate what is happening, but if there is anything i can give that will help i will send it over.
I have completed a delete-reinstall of the game and this has not stopped the issue from occuring.
