Since the day I installed Re2 Remake (PC) I've been having issues with the game randomly freezing. (as in complete and total lockup of my laptop requiring a HARD RESET to restart system.
After exhaustive testing and a process of elimination it turns out the game does not like my sound cards. I have to run the game with All sound devices disabled in Device Manager for the game to run smoothly.
I have 2 sound devices attached to the system... Realtec HD Audio and Nvidia HD Audio (Geforce Gtx 1060)
both have the latest available drivers.
The Nvidia audio produces better quality audio compared to the realtec as you may have noticed the intermittent distorted audio in my youtube videos, but both will cause the game to randomly freeze after 15 mins or so of game play.
I was wondering if anyone else has had any sound device / audio issues and if you found a solution.
on the bright side, at least it is not my modding that was crashing the game
