Just out of curiosity, do you get that problem when using the HD edition + this patch http://aoccs.net/ on voobly?

Hello,

For those who are enduring random freezes or black screen at the first 5 seconds of the game; you need to do as follow:

-First, most well-known fix is to set Power options to High Performance

Image

-Uninstall Avast (Fixes the 5 seconds black screen at the start of the game. Problem is persisting until this year 2017)

-Uninstall Background programs that check for updates regularly like 'Nvidia Geforce Experience' and Even Skype Updater sometimes.

-Perform Clean boot + disable following services: Windows Update, SuperFetch, Windows Defender, Windows Search and (watch this video from 06:17 https://youtu.be/_83lwYppuEg?t=6m17s )

-Nvidia Users must enable power management on High Performance ( watch this video from 13:56 https://youtu.be/_83lwYppuEg?t=13m56s )

- USB HEADSETS make massive input lag impact on windows systems due to poorly designed drivers that are not completely compatible.So By simply unplugging your USB headset and removing its driver and software and then using the default PC sound card or regular headphone jack cable will result in a massive improvement + no random freezes.

- Do not overuse your USB ports, Only for your mouse and keyboard and also make sure you are plugging your mouse and into USB 2.0 entry, not USB 3.0 because mice and keyboards are not fully operational on 3.0. Besides, sometimes USB ports can get faulty; hence you need to plug your device into a different port to solve the issue.

These are the most issues I have been running into with people that used to complain about this annoying random freezes.

You can pm me here or through Voobly in case your issue isn't resolved after all this.
Happy Gaming!

Boomjack you might want to add this to your list:

https://www.howtogeek.com/273180/how-to ... -game-bar/

GameDVR is from the windows 10 xbox app. It's supposed to record your game footage. I think how it works is you press a hotkey and it takes the last 30 seconds of footage in whatever game you are playing.

The problem is, it's always running in the background. I turned this off when I was having problems with skyrim. It's also a pinned thread and known issue in counterstrike forums. Not sure if it will fix your guys issues, but it might be worth looking at if you are a windows 10 user.

If you are using win 10, you should be monitoring ur system often, users with SSD suffer less of the 100% disk usage, but still being one of the most annoying issue that causes freezes and random lag.

Viper has such a monster PC even when he was using the 4790k i told him it could be the heat and after sometime he checked his cpu was about 100 degrees, but now i think his problem might be the priority of his OBS settings, he could be using it on high or above normal plus using slow decoding, even tho his pc can handle it, those settings do not work properly and might be causing those random freezes or lag.

@squeak

Besides that your pc might be not strong enough, you might be able to fix this by changing some Voobly Game Settings which will effect the game(in a room at the upper right corner there are some settings). Talk to the Voobly tech support, they'll know what to do.

@viper
I experienced the same while recording. Lower the OBS process priority and increase it for aoe. That could cause your stream to have some random lags (freezings) but your game will be fine.

Also run it in the winXP or 7 comp mode(i am on 10). That helped me also.

Any chance everyone who has this problem might be using a dual monitor set up? I bought my second monitor today and this problem started to happen.

Yeah I get stutters from using more than one monitor. Usually it's not bad unless it's post imp 4v4 with a lot of pop.

That's expected though considering that my pc doesn't even have a gfx card :)
