Alt Tab Possible Memory Leak

Post by Teralitha » Fri Aug 02, 2019 1:10 am

When I alt tab for a few minutes, no problem. If I alt tab for several minutes, it can take several seconds to a minute for the game to 'catch up' but then its fine. When I alt tab for like an hour, I have to reboot my PC to clear it up. Forcing the game to shutdown, which by the way takes a very long time waiting for windows to open and close, affects my PC even after the game is closed to the point I have to reboot, or do forced shutdown.

This appears to be causing my RAM to get filled up, and closing the game doesnt clear it.(when its been alt tabbed for like an hour or more that is) If I am able to close the game using the normal "exit" button, then when the game closes everything is fine. Its only when I am not able to close the game normally that it messes up my PC. Im not a computer expert so I dont really know whats happening.
