The game runs fine once I am loaded into any given area, but as of yesterday 7/14/19, the game takes almost exactly 4 1/2 minutes to start loading every time I move to a new area… simply hanging on the splash screen in the meantime. I’d like to get that wait time back down to the 10-20seconds it was as of a few days ago.
It first happened zoning into Tokyo yesterday, but since I haven’t been there in a while I felt perhaps it had to grab some assets, but then ALL zones began to work that way. So now it’s pretty bad … move formEgypt back to Agartha? 5min. … run across to Kingsmouth, 5more min. etc.
System Requirements & Recommendations are exceeded … I do have an NVidia card GTX1060 driver 431.36 but was only updated today as part of troubleshooting the issue.
It runs on a Hybrid drive, not the fastest (7200), but it hasn’t been an issue and there is little to no fragmentation and plenty of space.
I do access through Steam, but have the full client downloaded, or at least as full as I can find.
Checked through connections, firewall and A/V … and the issue would appear to be something internal to the game, but lowering settings has done nothing.
It behaves like it is completing loading in each zone every single time, THEN zoning the character in.
This is the only MMO that is having this issue.
Anyone run into this? Anything left to check?
Thanks in advance.
