Freezing issues aplenty

I hate to (most probably) repeat the same cry for help that most others have, but after checking around other related threads without finding any definitive solution, I'm going to risk making a new thread.

I just bought Call of Pripyat via Steam, and am running into more freezing issues than you can shake a stick at:

- Game periodically freezes for random lengths during play (although the ambient sound carries on),

- Crashes during any trigger events (picking up anything quest-related),

- Hitting ESC to get to the menu takes a good 30 seconds of stuttering and freezing,

- Saving / loading games (takes about three minutes each time, crashing every second or third attempt)


I'm running it vanilla with fully updated drivers, and having tried various combinations of low and high graphics configurations to no avail.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, and thanks in advance!

I see you have atmosfear 2 mod installed, or at least some parts of it. That might be part of the problem.

Oh snap, just realised that log is from when I had the game installed sometime last year, the log from my Steam version is empty <__<

So uh, disregard those logs.

If your drivers are all up to date it might be useful to try rolling back to earlier versions. The X-Ray engine isn't the most 'state of the art' device and rolling back has been successful for some.

The stuttering in-game is likely to remain as this is caused by NPCs, mutants, etc. spawning and switching on and offline about 150 metres ahead of and behind you. The longest stutters should arise as you approach or leave areas with large numbers of NPCs, etc. like Yanov and the Skadovsk.

Heavy stashes can cause stuttering, too.
