Hey @Murken901
does this still happen? Have you tried verifying your game files on steam or reinstalling the game?

This is happening to me too, since the last hot fix. During the game i’ve freeze for 2-3 seconds and then a fast forward.
Oh and I’ve reinstalled the game as well, it still stutters.

HI ChristheCo

I got support via email but I’ll update here too

Uninstalling(subscribing) all mods and reinstalling seems to work.

I’ve tried to uninstall game and mods, nothing is changed. The game still stutter every minute for 1-2 seconds…

Just sayin, I’ve solved turning back Malwarebytes. Seems there was a conflict with it.
