I don't know if anyone else has encountered this issue, but very often when I open the adjutor, the game comes to a screeching halt. I can't tab over to different categories of the inventory, nor can I tab over to different menus. All of my inputs are either severely delayed or not registered at all, forcing me to do a hard shut down of my PC. If I do manage to exit the adjutor screen, the game continues to lag for several minutes afterwards. I'm running this on a gaming laptop, so I don't think my specs are the issue. Has anyone else experienced this?
Not seeing that at all here. One thing to remember is that "gaming laptops" are not the same as a desktop you might assemble yourself for gaming--the desktop will run rings around it. Even if the GPU model nomenclature, for instance, is the same as it is for the discrete GPU products, only with an "M" for "mobile" after, you can bet it will almost always be far less powerful than the discrete desktop GPU that shares the same model number. Anyway, I would not think this has anything to do with your problem, though.
But this does sound odd, and as I'm not seeing it, and I don't see other posts reporting this, it just might be something relative to your system. I'm running on the latest version of Win10x64--so you might want to check your OS version and your software running when you run the game...It's barely possible that this is a game bug relative only to your particular hardware configuration, but with today's OSes that sort of bug is very rare indeed. And, if you are overclocking anything, stop and reset all clocks to default, of course. Also, make sure you have decent AV program running, etc. Standard Defender in Win10 works extremely well and is completely non-invasive, I've found. Hope you can square it away...;)
