Online Player slow down or freeze computer

Hi all, new user, player only. Really hope I can get this to work as our DM has worked hard on this! I’ve done research on the current threads but I cant seem to find anyone experiencing this. As soon as I launch the app my computer almost freeze, everything become painfully slow even moving a window or clicking on anything. Sound start to be very very scratchy. I’ve tried deactivating avast in case that was the issue (as I’ve read that on one of the threads) doesn’t help. My computer is fairly recent, my connection is 400mb and I’m connected via cable so I get full speed. The only two applications open are my browser (I’ve tried firefox and chrome in case one was the issue) and messenger app ( tried as well via both browser instead of the app. I’ve tried closing everything as well and I get sound scratch and slow, I can barely move the Syrinscape window, it’s frozen in place. I’ve updated everything there is to update and the computer run very smoothly otherwise. I’m not a genius with computers but I’m definitely not ignorant and I’ve tried everything I know.

Any avenues I could explore, I’m out of ideas as there isn’t any option on the app itself.

Here are my specs:

Hi @davidlarochelle3d,

That sounds frustrating.

We are not currently receiving any other similar reports at the moment… so we should look first for something unique to your system.

I would Google for “Unity apps “. + the names and setup of your system, as the apps are built on Unity, so will suffer similar probs to other Unity apps… when they do happen.

Definitely take a look at your graphic drivers and check they are up to date (though in the past, that has usually led to a BLACK app rather than slowness).

In the meantime, while you search and test, note, you can run the Online Player app on most phones and tablets.

Let us know how you go!

Good hunting!

ALSO; watch out for actual goblins!
