why are my games freezing?

Post by Luisa » 10 Dec 2016 21:30

I've formatted my desktop PC relatively recently, last scanning showed no signs of virus and I clean my cookies regurlarly, and yet my downloaded TRLE levels are freezing quite frequently and I have to ctrl+alt+del to exit the game and try again. My laptop is also displaying the same problem. Help?

Do you ever launch the game twice in a row? I sometimes have an issue where tomb4.exe takes a long time to launch - but if I were to try launching it again, it would eventually freeze (when the first instance of tomb4.exe finally caught up). If that is what you're experiencing then don't launch the game twice in a row. Either wait for the first instance of the game to open, or use the task manager to force quit the tomb4.exe process before trying again.

The idea is that you need to make sure tomb4.exe is not listed under Processes in the task manager (don't focus on Applications, the Processes tab is more important) before launching the game.

This is my experience on Windows 7, if that's relevant.
