Hello, after a long hiatus. I’m back… and so is one of my issues.
After I got my awesome new ASUS ROG laptop, I’ve pretty much been unable to play Stonehearth. I run it at a perfect 75 FPS (according to the Steam overlay; it never goes higher than that for any game so it may actually be higher) but no matter what I did, the game stuttered horrendously. It would be fine for anywhere from 5-15 seconds, then freeze for one or two, then be fine again.
If the ROG Gamefirst Service is the source of your problem as described above, if you end the task using the task manager it will turn back on the next time your computer shuts down/restarts. Unless there is a workaround to keep it permanently off (aside from uninstalling the service), it will keep coming back and must be ended through your task manager.
