I am currently running the game as an administrator and my problem seems to be solved. However, in this case, the Steam screen capture function does not work. Also, overlay notifications do not appear during video recording. But at least I was able to play without freezing. -force-glcore launches the game for me but the game freezes at any time. I am using a Radeon RX570 video card. I write that maybe there is a clue for the error.
