So ive been using linux for about a week now and have been in general enjoying it but im having a very odd issue with games hitching.
I downladed Night in the Woods to play with and almost immediatly noticed that the game was hitching, a lot. i checked and I was only using 1.5G of my 16G ram system-wide. almost as if its locked in or something. I then figured that I ought to try and run minecraft because it loves eating ram. out of an allocated 8G, it would refuse to use anything more than 3.2G, even when I put it under a really heavy load. Firefox does not seem to have this issue, upon opening a lot of tabs it will it will just eat an appropiate amout of ram. when the ram is maxed my CPU will go 100% on all cores.
ive done a lot of stuff poking around in terminal to see if there is some bottleneck, but nothing looked weird to me or my girlfriend, who has a fair bit of expierence using Linux. I can send any outputs that would be of intrest ofc
Thanks, pls halp
