    I've been having some long freezes lately, maybe around 4-5 secs, had the shorter ones for a long time as well, but I've just had one that lasted around 44 seconds! I honestly thought it had crashed, so I alt tabbed to desktop to kill the process and it suddenly unfroze. I don't know if this is classed as a physics freeze or not but I've uploaded it here, log and replay file, position 1186 in the replay: https://www.dropbox.com/preview/Pub...ort Park P1 44 second freeze.7z?role=personal

    Windows event viewer shows 2 instances just before screen hang and game crash
    Process C:\Program Files\Oculus\Support\oculus-runtime\OVRServer_x64.exe (process ID:11564) reset policy scheme from {8c5e7fda-e8bf-4a96-9a85-a6e23a8c635c} to {8c5e7fda-e8bf-4a96-9a85-a6e23a8c635c}

    +1 to the Graphic freeze that spawned from nowhere recently. I fear that since last update I suffer a several seconds Graphic freeze once everytime I use RF2: audio, FFB, everything still run normal, just the image is stuck, when this ends you are usually about to crash somewhere in the barrier. I hope this get addressed soon because online it could be a serious game stopper.

    It's a bit frustrating because I never had a more stable RF2 than now, except for this.

    It's micro-freezes in my case but it is constant since the last few weeks: I get one each and every time someone enters or leaves the server. And this is new: I hardly had any freezes since I got that PC 18 months ago. As additional info, I never tried the new UI. Not sure if logs will help: https://www.mediafire.com/file/maly0uc4hns763f/VEC_Imola_TD_1_V5__RealTimeLogging_PT.7z/file

    It's a shame to see a step back like this, this game really need to be fixed before we give up and move to something else; too many glitches all the time spoil the fun.

    Since last two months, more or less i've microfreezes too, but this thread is related to _out of real time physics freezes".
    I think that it is a different problem and it's not going to take in account here.

    Join lags reappeared after the new UI update. (every time someone joins a server you get a micro freeze)
    I'm running the old UI and here is my trace.

    I guess they're all related, that's why you have microfreezes, due to out of real time physics probably. Just hope they know why this happens, i was hoping for a BIG update when new UI was released but it seems not. I don't know what to expect now and when...

    Have you checked if your CPU is at 100% when you have microfreezes?
    Mine is OK. I think that it's not physics related.

    I don't know what it is, guess they don't know too. Fact is that this only happens in rF2, there was a time when i almost hadn't those freezes, but lately they're back again...

    For some reasons I am having lags again every time someone joins a server (~0.2 sec) since a couple of weeks. More seriously though, today I've had a 4-6 sec screen/audio freeze in my online race. I notice the same as Christos did a couple of post previously: the car doesn't freeze in place, but keeps going. I've NEVER had those types of freezes before. This is a massive deal braker since there is a high chance such a freeze will end your race! I have attached the link to what I believe is the log of the event.

    EDIT: the freeze occurred at precisely the moment I hit a big bump (Oreca07, Road Atlanta exit T5)

    Of all the simulators I have tried, rF2 is the one that gives me the best driving sensations, but participate in online races with these problems is frustrating, also because there are races where there are people who pay a registration fee for the championship. I hope that Studio 397 is working to solve these problems and that it communicates something to us users because the more time passes the greater the risk of abandoning this magnificent simulator

    Been having issues with screen freezes since the new update and got one on lap 2 in the rFactor 2 league race I was taking part in today.

    Freezes in EVERY session, some of them long ones at that (see above). If I was racing online, which I've stopped doing for now, it would be totally unacceptable and unplayable. I haven't changed anything on my PC, no drivers or anything. And no update on the problem. Really feel like binning this for a while and using another sim, or maybe going back to my saved DX9 version, at least that had the graphical plugins as well, which we were told would return, over 2 years ago now!
