View Full Version : Game load time

06-01-2007, 05:27 PM
Is there any way to make the game load faster? It takes close to 20 min from the time I put the disk in my drive to the time the game starts. Every fresh game takes at least 10 min for it to start.

I have 512mb 2.8ghz pentium 4
Dell dimension 4600

Is it possible to change some files around or something to make it load faster? Thanks for any input.

You need another 512 of ram for the game to load fast and smooth. 512 is boarder-line to run it.

And don't even think of adding supermods like GWX or WAC if you have that problem. My load times range from 1.5-2.5 minutes. With WAC, it climbed to 6 minutes on fresh game and 7 minutes to load a saved game. I have 1024MB RAM

I run 2 gigs of DDR ram, a ATI X850 256 DDR Card with a 550 Volt power supply and it takes 4-5 minutes to load.

I use to think that was a tad long--but twenty minutes?

Guess I feel better about my load time.

Yeah it's almost got to be ram. I'm running the same 2.8ghz Pentium 4, 1 gig of ram, and a POS video card.

It only takes maybe 1.5 min to get to the menu and 2.5 min at the most to load a saved game, and im running SH3 1.4 with GWX.

Yes, you need another stick of memory. I used to have lengthy load times with mods, but now the initial load takes about a minute, the game load around 5.

...And make sure the new RAM matches the old one in speed and size. Ideally you want a matched pair for best performance.
