Ever since I started playing the game I had Chrome running in addition to OW, and I’d most likely watch (or rather listen to) YT videos while playing. And up until now there was no issue with that.
But in the latest patch something changed for the worse. Whenever I have Chrome and OW running on my PC at the same time, I’m having much worse FPS than before:
- If I’m in a custom game completely alone with no other entities or players, I’d have minor lag spikes, when before the patch it was completely smooth.
- If I’m in the practice range with AI entities, I’d experience major lag spikes that can affect my gameplay, but still not completely ruin my expeirence.
- But if I get in a game with other players it’s just the worst, because I’m basically unable to play. My framerate would drop to single digit numbers, and stay there for what seems to be forever.
And it’s not just OW that suffers. Chrome also lags a lot when running concurrently with OW since the latest patch. It’d take me forever to search up something or turn on a video, when it used to be almost as smooth as butter just a week ago. (And on it’s own Chrome works just fine, as smooth as it was when the pre-patch game was running.)
Why does all of this happen now? Did something in the patch make the game incompatible with Chrome or something? Is there something I can do to make them run properly again?
