Hello. Haven't played FAF for a while, then returned. Had to upgrade FAF to relevant version - Ok.
The issue is following: quite often FAF loads CPU permanently after I start it, which makes it quite difficult to select and join a game because of lag. Also RAM usage starts from ~500 MB and then can reach ~1 GB. My OS then tries to find more virtual memory for FAF on HDD and makes it frustrating to be in SC FA game in that moment. The only solution in that case is to force-close the client.
By the way, client itself can not be closed properly, since it's process remains in Task manager anyway. Eating all that 500+ MB of memory.
So after I upgraded FAF and experienced this issue, I reinstalled the client. It seemed to fix it, but only for a while. Sometimes I was lucky to avoid the problem, but this is not he case. Also sometimes chat is unable to connect.
Finally, today I faced this issue again and could not use FAF properly. After deleting the client I found 4 java .hprof files ~1 GB each. And deleted them too. Reinstalled FAF, but it didn't help.
Please, fix it somehow, because it really looks like FAF is trying to mine something on my PC. Also it looks like a disastrous memory leakage.
It wasn't like that before. I mean, FAF used ~500 MB RAM(which is already quite a lot for such a program), but at least it wasn't lagging. And chat was connected all the time.
