Hi there! I've seen some people also experiencing similar problem here but still no answer/solution has been given...
So the thing is: after playing the game for some time CPU usage suddenly jumps from normal 300k-400k KB ram usage to 1,400k KB ram usage and in game it spikes like hell, it's like a quick slideshow.. Impossible to play... HoN restart normally solves the problem but it's not cool to restart once or twice per every game... And by the way there are games where I don't have this "jump" to 1,400k KB RAM... This started may be 3-4 months ago... Been playing HoN since beta and never faced that problem... In other thread one of moderators said that "it's normal"... Man, this is not normal... How come the CPU usage stays ok for 1-2 games and then it suddenly "jumps" ?! Sometimes it goes back to normal 300-400k after 5-7 minutes, but really it's faster just to restart HoN... TechSupport, please find a solution for this... P.s. this is not a virus or trojan or bugged system.. I had this bug on WinXP, recently reinstalled Win7 and still the problem is there...
P.S. I'm not using any mods or addons, just pure HoN...
I believe you are refering to memory usage not CPU usage.
The CPU usage of HoN will vary between 70% and 90% on a single core
RAM usage however will go in excess of 1Gig (I use upto 2Gig)
This is to be expected, HoN will cache as much data as it can in the RAM available to speed up access to such data.
This is really only an issue on machine with low RAM
unused RAM is wasted RAM
