Slow Area/Transition Load & Save Times Starting Around Act 2




Area load and game save times have increased steadily and dramatically starting around act 2.  I began noticing this around the start of Act II, i.e. after my arrival to the first main city.  The game ran very well, with areas loading in 5 seconds or less for all of Act 1, 10+ hours of gameplay. Now loading an area typically takes 30 seconds to a minute, with a fair amount of that time spent on a black screen before the 'loading' screen shows up.  It takes this long regardless of area size, so an inn or single room area takes as long as a big outdoor area.  This significantly degrades the game experience when quests call for you to run quickly between areas.  Note I tried installing the IE mod to change the setting so that the game autosaves before area load, rather than after, didn't solve this. I think the problem is some form of memory leak or decay causing save file/process to increase.



Steps to Reproduce the Issue:

Play a regular game (steam copy), get a full party (haven't tested this playing solo) and head into Act II.
