Cpu usage really high after playing for a while

Recommended Posts

I've been struggling with this really odd and annoying problem where my cpu usage spikes and memory usage drops drastically after playing for a while. I have absolutely no idea what triggers it because sometimes I can play for 30 minutes then this problem starts, other times I can play for atleast 2 hours before it starts. I have updated all drivers, reinstalled the game, verified game files and disabled all mods without success. I am currently stuck playing on a laptop not designed for gaming but I did test my specs on game debate and I surpass the minimum requirements for this game by what I believe is quite alot.

I could really use some help with this.

 

Here is a screenshot of my task manager after playing the game for 25 minutes on a fresh world:

I have also changed my nvidia settings to always use dedicated gpu instead of integrated.

Could you grab a performance report when the high CPU usage occurs? I'd like to see if I can spot anything that is not the way it's supposed to be.

(it could be that your world meets a specific worldgen criteria - I identified one - or does it happen on all worlds for you?)

See below on how to grab a performance report.

Thanks :)

It happens on all the worlds I create.

I just sent the performance report.

Just curious if you found anything in my performance report or if my little computer just cant handle this game.

Oh alright, that's completely understandable. I do appreciate all the work you do! :)

Hmmm, your profile is a bit strange, but can't put my finger on why.

2 odd questions:

Do you know what the refresh rate of your monitor is set to.

Does it also happen if you don't play with Wilbur (I think you do?)

I got a 60hz monitor so it is set to 60hz, and yes it happens no matter what character I play.

It's not your hardware  specs.

It could be that your laptop starts to throttle...but I am not sure how to combat that.

hmm, I checked my temps and it doesnt seem to be an overheating issue so I guess nothing more can be done.

I do appreciate that you took a look at this though, thank you.
