Crossing Souls Lags and Freezes

We have been lately providing lag and freeze fixers for many games. In this post, we will focus on Crossing Souls, a role playing game focused on puzzle solving and adventure. The game is about how a few classmates find the Duat stone and use it to embark upon adventures in the spirit land. But there adventures are cut off when a military journal kidnaps their parents because he wants to acquire the Duat stone to control the world.

Fix the Lag and Freeze Issue in Crossing Souls

ST Cleaner is a harbinger of strong security principles

Just like other games, Crossing Souls is affected by lag and freeze problems unfortunately. We decided to take a look and come up with workable solutions that can help our users. So let’s see what we’ve got for you.


Solutions to Crossing Souls Stuttering Problem

A user has suggested that one way to solve the game is to free the Core 0 while running the game on a multicore PC. Do this by going to the Task Manager and setting the affinity of the Client.exe (or if there is another game file running).

  1. Go to Task Manager.
  2. Right-click on client.exe file.
  3. Click on Set Affinity.
  4. Now apply the following changes:
    • For i7 processors uncheck all of the odd cores.
    • Mobile/laptop core i7 use instructions for Core i5.
    • For Core i5, uncheck core 0.
    • For mobile/laptop Core i5, use instructions for Core i7.
    • For AMD FX 8000, 6000 and 4000 uncheck the odd cores.
    • For AMD APU‘s uncheck core 0. (A6, A8, A10)
    • Before leaving client.exe right-click and click Set Priority.
    • Set the priority to above normal or high (DO NOT set to real time).

You can also save the settings with Process Priority Saver.

You can also use Odd or Even settings to run the game as well. Let’s suppose you have a Core i7 processor with eight cores. Here are the processors you will check:

Odd: 1, 3, 5, and 7

Even: 0, 2, 4, and 6


Fixing Crossing Souls FPS Drop

Usually the last solution handles the stuttering problem if your computer meets the minimum requirements of the game. However, if you have the FPS dropping because of graphics, you need to go to Graphics settings and set the Maximum performance option.

  1. Go to Nvidia Control Panel.
  2. Select Manage 3D settings | Power management mode.
  3. Select Prefer maximum performance instead of adaptive performance.
  4. Save changes and Apply settings.

In most cases, where the GPU is throttling the CPU performance, doing so can fix the problem. (Source)


Fixing Crossing Souls Screen Freezes

To fix the screen freeze problem, run Windows on High Performance instead of Balanced Power. You can do this by simply changing your screen freezing plans from the system menu. If you are on a laptop, the battery icon on the bottom-left of the screen will also allow you to do the same. Simply right-click it and click Power Options.

Change Advanced Power Settings

If the above provided solution still didn’t solve the problem, simply choose Advanced Power Settings from the Power Options tab and set minimum and maximum processor states.


The state should be between 75% and 100%. This will cause your computer to have adequate cooling available in case it’s temperatures goes a little too high. This will also help minimize the lag of the computer. You should also note that this is not an environmental friendly option and will increase your electricity bill.


Solving Crossing Souls Windows Crash Problem

To make Windows give priority to the process, launch it using the Run as administrator option. Simply open the folder where the .exe file is located and then right-click it. You will find the Run as administrator option. Click it and then click Yes when it asks for verification of settings.

Check Faulty Hardware

Another reason for frequent crashes of the game on the system is the use of faulty hardware. Check if you system doesn’t have faulty hardware like LAN card, Wi-Fi Card, Sound Card, or Graphics Card.


Minimum System Requirements

This is an obvious one. But let’s suppose you are running Adobe Premiere with the game and your minimum requirements were 4GB of RAM and Core i3 processor. Now, Adobe Premiere will also eat that much RAM if it is actively sitting on the start bar. So, simply run one program at a time. Else, upgrade your system.


Final Word

Crossing Souls requires basic system settings to run efficiently. Check the requirements of your system here and see if it can run the game. Try to keep the settings a notch up, to be able to get the most out of Crossing Souls.

We hope this post solved your problem of Crossing Soul lag, freeze, and stuttering.
