Posting this for my roommate.
Anytime he loads the game, the first time or two it will just close at the first trs load screen, no errors or anything.
Once he gets in, he’ll lock his character and the countdown in the top right will stop. No one else can load into the match until he alt+f4’s his game. Then we all load in just fine. It does not show as “Not Responding” in task manager. Appears to be running normally. Except for the whole freezing thing.
Have tried validating in steam.
He has an FX-9590 and 295x2 on a Formula-Z motherboard if that’s relevant.
He just installed a fresh Win 8.1 OS.
