Freeze at Start

Postby zuhero » 26 Jun 2022, 17:19

Hello, recently when starting TE13 with the ITST mod, it takes like forever to load, like more than 5 mins; while running the vanilla version takes like 2 mins. Is there some fix or workaround to try? As this just happened recently, before, it took like a min or less to load.

Hello,

the unmodded game takes less than 10 seconds to load n my PC, so I guess you have a quite weak PC, right ?
In such a case, I guess it's possible that an anti-virus update, or some processes running in the background may significantly lower the starting speed of TE2013. You should try to check with the Process Explorer if there's anything else taking CPU power.

Hello, my pc is not that weak i think... It's a i5 10300h+1650ti, 16 ram 2933 cl17, and two nvmes ssds. I looked at the processes using your instructions, and i discovered that while opening the app, windows audio device graph isolation process took a lot of cpu, so i ended the process and my game loaded with no sound. Maybe it's some incompatibility with Windows 11 latest update. As this process lets third party apps use system audio, i searched for a solution for its high cpu usage, and the solution was: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/win ... 249f74210e
Now the game is starting real fast.
