Long Saving Time + Lag

Hello all! I’ve tried searching the forum but couldn’t find a similar topic. Every time I overwrite a save, it takes a very long time to save (2+ mins), then the game has a severe lag until I quit and restart.

Additional info:

  • Humble Bundle, Alpha 9 r256 64bit
  • Windows 7, 64bit
  • Intel Core i5-3210M CPU @ 2.50Ghz
  • 4.00 gb RAM
  • Intel HD Graphics 4000



On a similar machine my autosave is approaching 200meg, so the freeze/delay is understandable until they get the save file optimized. StoneHearth just seems very bad at memory management at the moment (with lag effects seeming to hang around my other programs after I’ve shut down the game), but the devs have said that Alpha 10 is where they will focus on stability and performance.


I’m on a powerful machine and it wouldn’t save after 5 minutes.
