[SOLVED] Very long battle load times in campaign...

Hi,

after i updated to The Silence and the Fury patch yesterday, the load times before and after battle has increased dramatically.

I've timed a battle with 3 units in total, the pre loading took 1:45 minutes and the post loading took 6:20 minutes!. This is true for both Eye of the Vortex and Mortal Empires.

So far i tried re-installing the game, update all my drivers and change to DirectX 11, based on this post: https://forums.totalwar.com/discussion/227583/incredibly-long-load-times-post-battle-despite-ssd

Nothing worked so far, but i only seem to have the issue in the campaigns, Custom and Multiplayer battles load just fine in a few seconds.

Hardware:
  • CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600
  • RAM: G.Skill AEGIS DDR4-2400 C17 DC - 16GB
  • GPU: GeForce RTX 2070 8GB (water cooled)
  • MBO: ROG Strix B550-I Gaming
  • SSD: 2 x 970 EVO Plus Series 1TB M.2 i RAID 0
Hope someone can help me out, as this game is as good as unplayable for me right now.

    Not solved for me but I had a (duh!) moment and figured mine out. I deleted 3 years worth of saved games. Over 4k of them numbering about 34gig. Problem solved. DX11 or 12 had zero effect for me but I just checked it and this absolutely fixed my loading times.

    Did you manually delete a file path or go delete from inside the game interface?

    You can just go to your save game folder and delete as many as you want in one go. Look in the Read Before Posting thread at the top of the forum for info on how to find the folder.
