My game keeps freezing every few seconds, it makes it unplayable and completely breaks the immersion. It didn't happen at all last year when cars update launched. This have been happening since January so it's been 3 months since I cannot play PZ. So I've tried everything and nothing worked: -Lowered every graphical aspect of the game, resolution too. -Deactivated VOIP ingame. -Allocated more RAM in both the bat file and the json file (2gb 4gb and 8gb). -My PC specs are overkill for this game (16gb RAM, Ryzen 5 1600X, SSD, GeForce 1060GTX 6GB). -All drivers are up to date. -No mods and I've unsubscribed from all the mods. -Reinstalled the game, and deleted all related folders in the computer even in the %appdata% folder. -Changed Disk drives. -RAM scanning was fine. -Tried all the beta versions avaiable on Steam. I don't know what else to do and nowhere on the internet says it's gonna be fixed on next update please help. I can't actually play your game.
Hi, I use a WD Green drive to store all my games and it seems that Project Zomboid in particular doesn't play well with it. I experience heavy stuttering 5-10 minutes into gameplay, and according to Task Manager, it's because my HDD is stuck processing read/write requests - literally stuck on 100% activity while PZ is running, particularly when I'm loading unexplored areas of the map. I moved the PZ installation to my Samsung Evo 830 SSD, but that didn't help; my WD was still bottlenecking, presumably because the game is constantly writing to the save file in Users/<user>/Zomboid which is also on my WD Green. The temporary solution appears to be to not use a "green" drive, which is known to cause issues with games and gaming. However, I would appreciate it if in a future update you gave players the option to change the location of their savegame data, or if you could find a way to reduce the amount of small read/writes needed to eliminate the issue entirely.
