Alright, so we're a ways into the release cycle, and BT still loads like it's 1995 and trying to access the CD drive. Literally multiple minute load times.
The main thing I'm trying to figure out is what the heck is it loading? The between mission screens shouldn't be asset heavy, and even in game, it's not like the CoD98(or whatever they're up to). The in game graphics aren't anything crazy to right home about (they're not bad at all, no complaints, I'm just saying that for what they are they shouldn't each up that much RAM or processor time). I've closed down everything else, dumped the standby cache to clear out all the RAM I can, and BT only takes about a gig for the between mission stuff and less then 4 gb for in mission. I'll even buy it's my HD taking it's sweet time to get it all in RAM initially. After that though, what the heck is going on that takes so long?!
So any suggestions on how to get the load times down to something reasonable? I've got about 45 hours into it, but I swear at least 1/3 of that is the loading screens.
