First freeze frame then after the update crashing

Hey there,

I am sorry to inform you, that your game has for me mayor flaws.

From the start it was unplayable. Every few steps a freeze for about half a minute.
After changing the grafics to the lowest and the modus to window, it worked for nearly two hours with just a few freezes. By the next gamestart again every few steps a freeze. I changed every setting without any luck.
Because I like the gamedesinge and the gameplay I waited for the update.
After the update I also have the crash like many other players.
Please fix the freezing bug along with the crash bug.
