    [ISSUE SOLVED]For some reason ever since I bought the game a few months back it may seem my PC can’t handle it? It’s kinda a beefy setup but for some unknown reason it continues to freeze on me.

    No matter what map I am on, there are times where I could just be driving alone and experimenting with cars with different engines and such and out of nowhere my game would freeze and making loud noises.

    I am unsure of what exactly is causing this issue. I have a few mods installs but most of them seem to be doing just fine with the newer updates. I have cleared cache multiple times and still haven’t had the problem solved yet, what do I do?

    I seriously don’t want to just throw away this game. I love the modifications you can do with the vehicles in the game and the physics.

    I don’t know much but I will try and answer any questions you have for me. Any bit of help would be appreciated!!!

    I’m running a Core i5 CPU, a 1650 GTX SUPER as my GPU, and for Ram I just installed another 8GB of ram which would now make 16GB but before any of the Ram upgrade the PC is still running fine to this day.

    That is all the information I could give you unfortunately.

    What settings are you running at?

    Are you running other programs in the background?

    For programs that run in the background, I mainly have Discord and Google Chrome open up for YouTube. And I also have the Main Steam Page opened up or else how would I open Beamng lol?

    For the settings in game, I did tinker with it a little so it’s kinda on the medium side? It use to just hover around 60 FPS but now it’s around 70 FPS. Hopefully this information is good enough?

    (Sorry for the late reply)

    What you need to do is run beaming with "Task Manager Performance Tab" on, when you get a spike, screenshot Task Manager and it "should" tell you what caused the lag spike
    e.g.

    FYI: You don't actually have to have the Steam window open to play. You can close it after you start the game or bypass steam entirely by creating a shortcut to application in the game folder. If Steam is downloading or installing updates, that can be a big drain on your memory. I always have my games set to update only when I start them for this reason. Not sure if that is the problem but it might help and can't hurt

    I mean.. Yeah sure you dont have to have it open but I like it there just in case if I want to switch onto another game or not. But Ill give it a try running Beamng without steam in the background.

    That is what I was thinking but it seems as if its too little for Beamng to handle???
