COM Surrogate causes lag on my online game(Ragnarok Online) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've been having lag on my online game called Ragnarok. I tried to find out what's wrong and I noticed that every time I run Ragnarok, I start to have background process called Windows Audio Device Graph Isolation. After a little bit of reading online, I thought the cause of the lag is the COM Surrogate running that(WADGI) background process. I tried to terminate WADGI at the Task Manager and the lag disappears on my game, but my sounds are completely gone. I really want to have my sound while removing the lag. Does anyone have an idea how to fix this? Thanks.

  • Hi,

    This issue can be caused by compatibility or game files.

    I suggest you can test the issue via running this game in Windows compatible mode:

    Make older programs compatible with this version of Windows

    If it doesn't work, I recommend you contact the game manufacturer to help check if any related DLL files are required to change to fix this issue.

    Thanks for your understanding.
