Re: Performance Issue: Massive slow down/hanging.

Shame, I am convinced having had a trouble free period now that Steam is the culprit.

I note from over boards that similar Slitherine products seem to be encountering similar slow downs; Order of Battle for one.

At least the devs know where to look now.

Re: Performance Issue: Massive slow down/hanging.

The purpose of this post is to help anyone who has Panzer Corps on disc or downloads from Slitherine as I have but also had Steam versions and encountered problems with hanging etc. when using Steam version. To pad out the explanation I have included a bit of old stuff as below. Same issue with me, ...

Re: Performance Issue: Massive slow down/hanging.

I tested a bit more and i don't get any slowdowns at all even after around three hours of playing Panzer Coprs under Steam. At least not any noticeable slowdowns. It seems like it doesn't affect everyone. Obviously no idea if I am among the lucky few ones or the majority. For reference my computer ...

Re: Performance Issue: Massive slow down/hanging.

Ok, stupid steam overlay has somehow developed a memory leak in conjunction with our beloved panzer game but I can't find where its coming from either...try this workaround that I tested and at least works for me so far and still gives you access to the dlcs and saved games. Start the game via stea...

Re: Windows 10 slow performance

Try to find the tread at the end of my post, I think it is in the process of dealing with your issue although Windows 10 has not been the designated culprit. Seems to have occurred only fairly recently on or after the Version 1.25 patch and or Soviet Corps DLC release. Flashpoint and Steam are aware...

Re: Performance Issue: Massive slow down/hanging.

Surely it's only a workaround if it works!

It doesn't!

Unlike others I feel sure the makers and Steam are trying to identify the faults.

Thank you chaps.

Re: Performance Issue: Massive slow down/hanging.

There must be a reason why I am now seeing posts on other topics on this thread, if there is I would suggest there is no need to confuse the issue raised.

There has been a recent Steam update, which has had no effect on the hanging and slowdown issues reported.

Re: Performance Issue: Massive slow down/hanging.

One more point that may not be related:- On the physical game rather than Steam I have invisible Russian units at Sevastopol, but visible on the Steam version. Found it when I selected an artillery unit which targeted it. I exited and reloaded both to see if that corrected it but it doesn't. Odd, ne...

Re: Performance Issue: Massive slow down/hanging.

Btw the /nocache fix as described (I did it as VPaulus outlined in earlier posts) has not worked for me, two turns at most and a gradual slowing down to a crawl and lagging screens etc.

I am not getting through the second turn before I have to save and quit.

Re: Performance Issue: Massive slow down/hanging.

Applying a bit of logic from the posts so far.............

Is it something in Steam that's the unknown niggling factor here?

I was not in beta testing, but that would surely not have been done through Steam.

Just my thoughts about pinning the tail on the donkey.

Re: Performance Issue: Massive slow down/hanging.

At least we know it's not our computers at fault, I had been performing diagnostics and was about to do a full system clean install, thanks for posting those with the same issue as me.

I agree everything was fine till I installed Soviet Corps, so that would seem to be the issue.

Re: Performance Issue: Massive slow down/hanging.

Although not directed at me I will answer Rudankort in so far as it applies. I have installed Soviet Corps through Steam, I assume as always Steam updates patches as it goes(?) I have tried 43 Campaign this morning, fine for a while then it froze for a moment and became slow to respond after that wi...

Re: Performance Issue: Massive slow down/hanging.

Well just come on and seen the following posts from my last, my experience having used the /nocache is similar to before but not quite as bad.
I will have a look see at the memory usage when I am next on which will be tomorrow.
Thanks for all the helpful posts none the less.

Re: Performance Issue: Massive slow down/hanging.

Thank you for that, I have followed the instructions and will now test it, hopefully the fix will make everything good again.

Re: Performance Issue: Massive slow down/hanging.

Same issue with me, massive hanging, ever since I installed Soviet Corps I don't get more than a few turns in before it's uncomfortable to play. (I'm still playing Grand Campaign '43, and will finish before I go on to Soviet Corps). I have swapped video drivers since it first occurred fwiw, no chang...
