game freezes only when recording demo HELP

Postby Mmalo1226 » Fri Nov 24, 2017 1:24 am

it only freezes for litterally a second every 5 seconds. just enough time to stick whatever button im pressing at the time and send me into the bails.i know it is not my pc cause ive upgraded my pc multiple times and i have done a reformat every time ive changed motherboards and yesterday i put windows ten on and re-downloaded game and reinstalled from scratch and everything and it still does this. any ideas? it didnt do this on my original motherboard and original processor. which was garbage to say the least lol.

Some systems apparently wait for writes to disk to complete before letting the program continue. If you have write caching disabled try enabling it:

Don't disable write caching. The problem is you aren't getting write caching even though it's enabled. If there are any drivers for your motherboard/chipset that you haven't installed you might want to try installing them.

That's a good question. Maybe something is deadlocked and the extra load helps wake it up.
