When you press F12, game freezes for a short time. If it annoys, this guide tells how to get rid of it.
Why it happens?
Game engine has F12 button bound to make a screenshot and store them in own save location folder. In same time, Steam uses F12 button for screenshots by default too.
Each time the game takes shot, it freezes for a brief time for reasons. Steam doesn’t freeze as it’s overlay component works in separate thread, not interfering with games.
How to fix
Open game console by pressing ~ button
Type in: unbind F12 screenshot
Do note that bind and unbind behave different in new engine compared to older one and forks. Instead of overriding full set of commands assigned to buttons, these commands now add and remove actions.
Should not cause lags and break immersion anymore each time you make shots.
