I'm not sure if this was previous covered here in the forum, but I searched and found nothing.

I used to play Titan Quest using the classic discs with an old computer and it always worked fine, but when I got the Anniversary Edition from GOG, the game sometimes do small freezes, for very few seconds, like the fps got really to 0 and then bump up fast.

I tested on my old laptop with these specs:

Core i5 3th generation + 12Gb Ram + SSD + Geforce 630m

Then I got a new computer:

Ryzen 3 2200G + 16Gb Ram + SSD + Vega 8 (2Gb).

The issue is the same in both machines. Some search on google lead me to someone that told this would happen when the game and save is not in the same directory. Could be, but i have a lot of other games that tend to get a big save file and nothing like that happens.

Has anyone suffered from that ?
Not being in the same directory shouldn't affect it. I have the game on my D: drive and the saves on the C: in My Documents\My Games\Titan Quest Immortal Throne\SaveData and I don't suffer from this at all.

You could try using this to see if it helps

Oh, I don't know why I thought it was made for only GD. Thanks for the news.

I did what you request and I noticed a little improviment in the freezes/lags. It still happens, but not often as it used to be. It's more playable now.

It's funny how some games need stuff like that to run in some modern machines. I used something like that to run Supreme Commander. But I have played Grim Dawn for some time and never noticed that kind of lag.

Anyway, thanks for the answer and info!

It was originally, but I asked powbam if he could make a version that worked with TQ since GD uses the same game engine, though much modified now. He did so and decided to add it to the core switcher so it's available for both games.

I also think the game may have problems with Ryzen hardware; GD certainly seems to sometimes.
