^ that post killed me.
Yknow, there is a reason to coop freezings.
If steam loses connection for even a half of a second, Shift suffers a brain aneurism and cuts down the session. Freezing the game for a few seconds and returning with “lost connection to SHIFT servers” or something.
Now, in singleplayer, you can see this disconnection freeze your game for a moment and then come back as nothing happened. But in coop, i believe this small freeze can evolve into a full on crash because uh… Because shift i guess.
Other than that, freezes most often happen in mayhem mode to me. So i’ll point this out here for anyone having the same problems. Troubleshooting for common freeze:
- Avoid mayhem modifiers involving laser particles. Attaching beams, laser spinners, and the like.
- Try to keep down elemental damage modifiers. The more elkemental variables going on in a fight, the bigger the odds of crashing.
- Lower specs, its sure to help. Plus you get those juicy FPS too.
- Always test out other weapons if possible. Some weird weapon particle combinations can be the cause of it.
If none of that works out, come back to the forum and complain again.
Game is unestable as hell for a lot of people and it needs to be heard. Let’s see that damn SFX SETTINGS SLIDER, Gee Bee!
