Well, guys, since the last post I made here on the forum, I decided at that time to try Zorin OS, but given that it wasn't a "smooth experience", I have since transitioned back to Windows 11. [I just forgot to update the post to include that, but oh well. ]
Anyway, roughly 6-ish months have passed & I've decided to try it again even IF I know I'll eventually go back to Windows. Still, with the INCREDIBLE innovation/advancements with AI being super helpful, that has kind of changed that. But I have a few specific questions that I'd like some human input on & I'm sure you'll be able to help me out nonetheless.
I got a couple of the EA games that I play setup via Wine & Lutris. I have been staying on top of ALL updates & making sure things look right, but I am experiencing some minor hitching in 1 of the games. I was wondering if there's anything I can do about that to make it a smoother experience?
Anyway, just some random questions I thought of since I'm essentially giving this another shot. For anyone wondering or curious, this pcpartpicker link contains all the components/peripherals of my setup: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/t232Y9 And if any of y'all happen to have any questions for me or need more details, feel free to reply, comment below or even just dm me if you feel like it & I'll be sure to get back with you!
So with that being said, I'll just leave it at that for now & hope someone helpful enough can reply. Thanks in advance to anyone whom can be of help!
Not sure if you have dual boot already running?
Or just Zorin OS ( clean install)?
I see your link below for your Machine Spec's ( i for one don't like clicking link's Can you copy & paste, or type your machine Spec's here,
Machine make & model:
Windows 11 ( edition):
SSD/HDD & size:
This can be many thing's ( network connection if it's an online game ) updated BIOS/firmware or kernel/etc..
I would suggest testing offline if possible & see if you still get shuttering?
Does this happen on one particular Monitor? ( how How is the monitor connected, (HDMI? HDMI 1.4 or 2 or 2.1/etc Passive or active, old or new?)or VGA/ect.
This can also be a separate Topic;
It help's other when searching for specific issue's,
As you can appreciate These are separate issue's.
Site @community_moderators may split this any way, but in conclusion to my post, you may create separate Topic yourself & delete this one
i see your getting replies as i'm typing ,
So best to create separate Topics
& provide machine spec's
In the meantime, check for BIOS/Firmware/system updates first.
I actually never really dual-booted to begin with. I've heard it can be a bit finnicky/a pain-in-the-butt, but I personally think it just depends. But didn't want to risk it or have anything go wrong. So that's why I just clean installed Zorin OS.
Also, no offence, but you KNOW there's no harm in clicking on links, right? O.o Still, I'll provide the components for my pc: CPU is an Intel i7-10700K [Stock, not overclocked whatsoever.], I've 16GB of G.Skill Trident Z Royal 3200MHz @ CL16, GPU, is an RTX 2070 SUPER, SSD is a Samsung 970 Evo Plus 2 TB [The ONLY drive in my system of course.], & MOTHERBOARD is the MSI MPG Z490 Gaming Edge WiFi.
As far as the first topic goes, Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare 2 is a game where you can NOT play offline since you HAVE to have an internet connection for online play. Obviously, there's nothing wrong with the display itself, the issue I've noticed is just a bit of lag/hitching, but very minor of course. But it's connected via DP of course.
With regards to the last comment you added, I would have done a couple of different topics, but TBH, that would have been a bit of a hassle, & remember- the post said "A Few Random Questions". So why bother to complain when you can just simplify it into 1 post like I did anyway? Anyway, like I stated earlier, I have all the latest updates in place since I stay on top of those & my BIOS has been on the latest version as well since at least like 8 months ago or something.
It is recommended that threads concern one topic. This ensures that you get the help you need and those assisting know what they are resolving. This also assists future visitors a clear timeline of troubleshooting to solution.
While it may be easier for you to consolidate your issues, this actually creates clutter and confusion within the thread and forum.
Please take the time to separate your queries to three other individual threads.
Please do not unnecessarily burden the volunteer moderators and staff with thread maintenance further than what already is required.
OK. Sorry about confusing everyone, but I prefer my posts to be condensed if there are multiple topic surrounding one issue. But in the future, I WILL try to remember to divide them up into their separate/appropriate topics accordingly.
It is certainly understandable how for you as an individual, this could be preferable. For a Public Resource as this forum is, keeping each topic separate helps many individuals neatly find answers they need to questions. Otherwise, they must sift and sort through a long winding thread that they have no experience with - even whereas for you, it is a thread you are well familiar with.
By all means, please do separate the topics out (Or a moderator can split each off to help make that easier, we do it all the time. )
I agree that each different user issue should be written as separate posts (threads) and allocated to specific sections of the forum for efficient comprehension and diagnosis. I'm pleased the OP has accepted this as I am finding 4 topics interlaced here in this thread impossible to follow.
