After doing a bit of research with this issue I couldn't exactly find any particular way to fix it. My problem seems to be that when I play Terraria anymore that I have these strange micro stutters here and there. I thought these were mostly just random at first, but after a friend tried to help me diagnose the problem, it seems that it mostly happens when any kind of enemy spawns and it happens sometimes when they die as well. As far as the actual micro stutter I would describe it as the screen just freezes for just a second. Then things are okay until another enemy I haven't seen yet spawns in. It's not every time an enemy spawns in, but that's just when I notice it the most. I've done quite a bit of the troubleshooting recommended by other posters such as: -Having Frame Skip: on, off and subtle -Completely uninstalling Terraria -Turning Backgrounds off -Turning Multicore lighting on and off -Opening Task Manager and setting priority to: Above Normal, High and Realtime -Setting the affinity to all different kinds of combinations within Task Manager -Opening the Nvidia Control Panel and manually selecting each option -Having Google Chrome closed when playing -Running Terraria as administrator -Playing without a headset connected -Updating drivers Though, when I had an older headset that I got rid of, it would cause the entire computer to freeze, which I didn't know that at the time, but it makes me wonder if my audio drivers are whats causing the issue? I know it seems weird but you never know with these things. I would also say this started happening a little bit into 2018, but I stopped playing Terraria for a while. Not sure how much this helps, but just a little info on what I'm working with.
