Any time I try to play the game it will run for about 15 to 20 mininutes before the PC will lock up, can't alt tab, can't move the mouse just everything is frozen yet the CPU is still running and all I can do is hit the restart button, I've no idea what is causing the issue or how to fix it. But I do know it has to do with my pc since trying the game on another pc it works without crashing. My graphic card is a AMD Radeon R9 380 Series and my CPU is a AMD Fx-8320 Eight-core Processor (8CPU): ~3.GHz. DxDiag.txt
Pillars of Eternity runs awful (max 30 fps at 1600x1200) on a Surface Book even though it has a fairly decent 940m-ish dedicated GPU. There's no log file in the directory or console command that would allow me to verify which graphics card the game is actually using, but it seems like the integrated graphics card is used no matter I do. I've tried forcing the game to either use the integrated graphics or the dGPU by using the Nvidia manager but it doesn't affect performance at all. I've even tried disabling the integrated graphics card in the device manager and it actually lowers the fps to 1-4 fps even in the menu. There seems to be a problem with Unity 4 games defaulting to integrated graphics but I've never found any solution. Any advice in how I can force the game to use the dedicated GPU? I've tried updating drivers, looking through the registry, etc.
I'm running W7 Home Premium with an R9 290. I usually keep track of how my hardware responses to the things I use and I've noticed that getting into the game and alt+tabing back to my desktop still makes my GPU load to be the same as in game. Needless to say, this shouldn't happen and no other game is doing it. Just fire up the game, even in the main menu, just alt+tab out of the game, you'll see the gpu is still working. Is there any aditional info (logs or whatever) I could provide?
Hello forum! Hoping somebody with more technical knowledge can confirm if my system will be able to run the game effectively with existing GPU. I have plenty of RAM, storage, and processing power according to Steam's minimums...but not sure about GPU. I have an ATI Radeon HD 5750. Am I good to go as long as I run the game with reasonable graphical settings? Thanks!
