Ridiculous game loading times.

Post by Xephyr » Tue Aug 11, 2015 8:22 pm

I'm not sure what it is, whether its busy systems or too much data to handle, but since 1.6 rolled out I've had to wait upwards of five minutes for savegame to load.

Anybody else getting this, or just me?

no such problems with my games, actually seems to load faster then 1.5 in my case. (pure subjective though, didn't measure loading times) currently in my second game with 1.6.1 usually trying to finish every new release with each available ship. Started with saphire and now playing with the Ei500.

I've had this problem with two savegames. After waiting for a while for loads to happen, I gave up and started new games.

Back when I played the Succession #7 game, which was very heavily modded, I could not load save games once the filesize or something else grew too big. It was like the load game process was caught in an infinite loop. Caused some frustration for me.

I haven't seen issues with unmodded savegame loading times even on a quite elderly machine (Core II Duo, 4GB RAM).

Specifically I've had troubles with EP and vanilla+CC. Haven't played enough straight vanilla recently to even trigger this, since it seems to occur in the late game.

I'm on a 1.90GHz, 6GB RAM system.

On 1.65GHz and 4GB RAM my games take one or two minutes to load (modded or unmodded). But never five!

I have only 20 second hangups....but that's on every gating. I'm running the steam version with SM&M++.
