Okay FPS but constant freezes

Borderless is bad for framerate though, I was getting 20-40 in borderless and I’m now at 30-50 in Windowed mode.

I have the same Problem.
I5, 16 GB Ram, GTX 1080, Win7. No matters if i play with super high or medium graphic settings. Game will freeze every 5 Minutes. Before tamberg it was better.
I have sometimes 120 fps, but the game freezes anyway.
But i can’t/won’t update to win10. I have some software installed who needs win7.

i will try the windowed mode, an the physx settings this evening.

I got:
RX 580

I tried everything. EVERYTHING. I didn’t try only win 10. Any other suggestions how to fix on AMD videocards?

Also had continuous stuttering (5 second freezes) in town on a 3570k @ 4.3ghz. Upgraded from Win7 to Win10 and practically all of it is gone, there are very rare 1 second stutters related to my weak CPU but that’s all. Unfortunately this game still seems to be very heavy on CPU usage in general, and when I’m walking around in Rattay for example I can expect 100% cpu usage all the time. No idea what can be done to reduce this somehow…

changed the window settings to borderless(? not shure, how its named in englsih). now it works fine with win7.
Just played 3 hours with graphic settings on high, and had just 4-5 minor freezes.

The game is full of areas where brief microstutters happen. The fps jumps up and down. This is enough to disrupt the whole experience for someone like me who is used to butter smooth stutterfree gameplay on every single game out there at max settings.

A perfect example is in Rattay when you sprint from the bathhouse towards the stream of water. I am able to produce a microstutter there every single time. A lot of people here ignore these microstutters and claim 60fps+ solid. That is NOT 60+fps solid.

PCGamer and JokerProductions have all pointed out those sudden drops regardless of setting.

Gtx 1080 Ti (390.77 WHQL driver)
i7 7700k @ 4.6Ghz
16GB DDR4 RAM 3200Mhz
Samsung 850 Evo SSD
Win 10 Pro 64

Also CPU Core 2 is always at 100% or near 100% usage regardless of location. here is an example:

I found a solution how to get rid off freezes. You need to download “Battle Encoder Shirase” and target the process “Kingdom come” after launching the game and set CPU - 1%. Be Happy

It works! Thanks!
Also the loadings are moooore faster.
Now i’m stable on 35FPS With a GTX950M i74720HQ 8GB RAM
All at minimum.

EDIT: After the first “Chapter” the issues comes back

I tried this and sadly that changes nothing for me… :confused:

I sincerely hope the devs are reading this topic. This is a big issue that needs addressing. I seriously don’t wanna upgrade to Windows 10 (I also have programs that only work on Windows 7). I also don’t believe it’s a GPU related issue, since lots of users up here are reporting the issue, even with high end GPU cards. I hope this gets fixed in a patch in a near future. It’s REALLY annoying!

Here is what you need to try. After launching the game you should go to Windows Process Manager, click on Kingdom Come process and localize the core that is 100% or almost 100% utilized. Then right click on the mentioned process and select: Set affinity. Deactivate the core that is ~100% utlized and click OK. Then, right after deactivation, activate that core again and click OK. Right now that core can be still used by the game but it is no longer overloaded. That helped me a lot when it comes to the 3-5 seconds freezes. I have Core i5 2500K 4.5GHz, GTX 1070 and Windows 7. Hope that helps.

Is this better than using the Shirase program?

Never tried that program because my performance is good enough now. Game is playable.
However, I reckon that the trick that I described may work better because the overloaded core is not restricted to 1% of utilization. It is just kinda reseted.

you forgot to mention that you have to click on resource monitor do see which CPU core is being 100% utilized… Anyways, the Shirase program worked for me. I’ll try your suggestion next. thanks anyways…

edit: both methods work. Maybe try a combination of both? Again, thanks @shooter and @Green853 !!

I turned off motion blur and set graphics to medium. Also lowered all the settings for distance loading. Seems to have worked.

I have a i5 6500 at 3.2 GHZ. The problem is all my 4 cores reach 100 when the game freezes (the whole reason it seems), would it make any difference with the Battle Encoder Shirase? Also I am a little afraid to download this type of software from just any site.

Cord, here is a thread on steam that can help with that problem.


@BladeX problem here (as the topic tittle states) isn’t fps. It’s the constant freezing of the game for several seconds. It’s a CPU core problem, not GPU.

@Cord The BES can be downloaded from the official site, just google it. Alternatively, you can use shooter’s method described above. It also works (at least it worked for me)

IF Shooter’s method doesn’t help any chance that BES will resolve the situation? And what i see in system monitor are all 4 cores loaded to 100% when freezing happens.

Got myself an ssd and switched to win10, still the same xO. My freezes are quite long (30-60sec) but very good fps an medium…
