I'm not saying it's game related, no one would be playing if it were lol
I'm just saying I dont think it has anything to do with spec's
(just for the fun/test of it, I created another char before server went down again, loading times were fine for those first few missions)
I'm gona wait for server to come back and see if anything happens then (but I dont think anything will since it's not game problem)
could my game client be corrupt or anything like that maybe?
load times have been around 5-15 seconds, but I did have a single occurrence of a 12 minute load going from one sector to another. load times were back to normal after that, even going through sectors.
Well, in support of the OP, after not playing for a week, and coming back to the shiny new patch (and all the UI improvements look grand, and YAY FOR ANTI-ALIASING!), my load times now suck - about five minutes between Sector and System space, for instance.
And my specs are a bit better - Core I7 processor, 6GB of RAM, 4870X2 video card - no problem there.
So something is definitely up that's affecting load times for some users. Loads were fine when I last played, but are now less than so
yeah I'm doing a defrag as we speak, my system is only week and a half old tho...
I'm reinstalling graphic driver just in case.
hmm... Niekitty said that he had one occurrence of long load time when he was switching sectors... the char that is stuck with that loading time is going from Vega to Sol... might be some rare occurrence or something when switching sectors or something...
bah, cant fix anything while server is down anyway :p
P.S. just my luck lol, first I cant get beta key, then I decide to pre-order a game coz I cant wait to play it, then I receive a beta key 30min after the purchase. I download a game and patch it just before server goes down for 2h maintenance, then I get problems with the game it self (loading) and now the server is down again for 2h... ... ... ...
I'm starting to believe I am not meant to play the game for some reason
At first I thought this thread was going to be about the fact that the load times are too SHORT. I always enjoyed, In other games I've played, reading helpful hints on the loading screen, but in this game I get maybe three or four words in before the new section has loaded.
But then again, not to brag, but I have a wicked fast hard drive configuration...
