Rust keeps freezing every 10-20 seconds

Hey i need help, i just bought the game but i can’t play it because it keeps freezing every 5-10 seconds, just like this:

I have heard that this problem is caused by sound devices, so i tried to disable “IDT High Definition Audio CODEC” in Device Manager:

And it worked! With that device disabled Rust doesn’t freeze anymore. However my sound is also disabled, so basically the game runs fine but there is no sound, which is not good.

Do you know how to fix this? Please help.

(I have vcredist, net framework and all drivers updated)

I have the same problem. Thanks to this post, I figured out the problem, but I do not know how to solve it.

Please help :frowning:

I think I’m having the same issue. My game freezes like that, but I didn’t/don’t know if it’s a sound codec issue.

Me too :frowning:

Is there a free alternative audio software we can use solely for Rust?

This is a pretty common issue:

Take a look at the last link for a possible fix.

Thank you for posting but no one of this help me :frowning:

Bump! I still need help after 1 month, where the hell are developers?
