Alt+Enter should switch between windowed and fullscreen at any time.

The dump you sent me shows that your machine has 2 CPU cores, the freeze might be related to that. Please find a file called "settings.ini" in the install directory. If it's not there please make an empty one. Add the following 3 lines:

workers = 4
enabled = true

If that doesn't fix the problem, try "enabled = false" as the last line instead, I'm pretty confident that will fix the freeze, but unfortunately it will also make performance worse. Apparently we have a bug which is triggered with less than 3 workers, which isn't going to be easy to fix, so I don't think we can put out a patch very soon.

Please let me know if you see any changes, it's appreciated!

Received, thanks a bunch. I'll report back as soon as I have something.

Hi, thanks for the report! Tough one, I have some idea what could cause this but it's difficult to pin down exactly without a snapshot of the freeze. Could you create a process dump for me? When the game is stuck, open Task Manager, right-click On Rusty Trails (might be called integrate.exe) and select "Create dump file". It's probably a couple hundred MB so it won't be e-mail friendly, maybe you could upload it to WeTransfer or something like that? (ZIP with password if you worry about leaking secrets, but usually there's nothing in there that identifies you except for local paths to your user directory.) A dxdiag.txt for your PC could also help. You can email stuff over to us:

Sorry about the inconvenience, and again, thanks for the heads up!

That's too bad, we never caught that apparently. I'll look into it. Thanks for the report, and glad you liked the game :)
