Determining cause of "freezes"

Postby CC » 04 Sep 2009, 22:30


I have a new computer, and it is pretty powerful. I mention that as before there were some issues where game-play would be jerky or whatever, and it seemed that my computer was not powerful enough, perhaps. Since the last update (and possibly before?), I have experienced game-play freezing for a second or two. I noticed this mostly last night while playing someone online. I thought that maybe the Internet connection between us contributed to it, but the ping was only 76 ms, which is incredibly good. Also, this happened a couple of hours ago when I was playing an offline match with the CPU. My computer is more than powerful enough for the game. Do you have a suggestion on determining the cause of this freezing? When it happens, it is only TE2009 game-play (action) that freezes...everything else (mouse pointer, keyboard, etc.) is normal. Is there a way (since the game is being record to demo file) to see a log of all of the game activity which may reveal a cause? Or, if you have another suggestion, please elaborate.

Thank you,

it could be coming from another program (antivirus comes to mind).
Also, if u're recording the match, try to turn it off to see if it helps...
