Starcraft 2 freezes – solution

August 5th, 2010 by admin Leave a reply »

After refusing to pay 10 quid more to buy StarCraft 2 online vs a hard copy I got the game and been playing it for 2 days or so.

The bloody game freezes up in my Quad Core machine with 8Gig of RAM

After reading a few pages like this and this the thing that worked best for me was to assign the running program to just one core.

Really don’t understand why a program that has just been released has trouble running on Quad Core CPU, but that seem to do the trick for now.

Just thought I would share this with the masses.

If your StarCraft freezes in the game for 1min or 2 then just go into  TaskManager and assign the affinity of the program to just one core like the picture bellow

Update 22th Aug 2010

Nothing to do with dual or quad core it was my graphics card “ATI Radeon HD 4850 512MB GDDR3”

I thought it was fairly new and powerful. The default settings were High and when I set it to slow it works just fine on all 4 cores.

I am going to try to update the drivers and see if I can play it in a high setting.
