High, I'm running a dell inspiron 5000 gaming laptop with 8gigs RAM, quadcore i7 and a gtx1050 with 4gigsVRAM. I had the graphics default on Auto (very high textures quality, medium on everything else). When the game autosaves, it sometimes lags out, sometimes crashes. This has only happened twice until now, I ignored it as I never lost too much progress. But this is worse.
I was in R&D, just beat the Bloodied Cerberus a few times, (I was farming the parts), and I went back to OPS to fill up my injectables. I saw that the game was autosaving (squares moving), but it wasn't lagging so I turned around and started towards the door. The game then froze. I left it about twenty seconds then hit click once. I decided to be patient, and wait. Eventually, the game resumed, my clicked registered, and my MK.IV firebug arm swung forward. It hit Alec Norris, and he immediately screamed and died. I was prepared for this though. I quickly closed the game, and replaced the "save" file in my documents with one I had copied out earlier. Alas, when I logged back on, Maddy and Alec were gone, and I had a scrap reward for killing them.
Please, how do I fix this? This is terrible! I know a little about managing files, if you gave me instructions on how to respawn them or something, this might be fixed.
I'll check back soon for a reply.
