Hi Obsidian developers and co.,
This was one of the first posts I came across while searching for a solution to my problem. My hope is that in producing this post here, it might get the attention of the correct/relevant parties. I'm happy to take this off-forum with private messages, if that's the most suitable and/or preferred approach.
The original poster, who explained that his game was unplayable?
I'm experiencing the exact same issue, albeit on Windows 10 to their Windows 8. And with an Nvidia GTX 1060.
Spec-wise, I am running:
With an i7-8700 CPU @ 3.20
RAM: 16 gig
And of course, I have enough HD space to store the game.
I should probably add: I purchased the Obsidian Edition of the game, as I loved the first game that much (I've logged approximately 80 hours of it in Steam).
Now, look, I know that when games come out, it's not going to work on every system. I know you try and anticipate every issue that could occur with every issue that comes up, which is why you postponed the release of the game by one month.
No problems there. Hell, Fallout 4, a day after its release, had a 500mb patch.
So I'm maintaining a realistic set of expectations.
Obviously, it's only been a few weeks, and I know you're all hard at work, dealing with all the obvious problems that come from not being able to predict/anticipate every possible configuration.
Please - take your time.
All I'd like to know is:
Why oh why does the game take an astonishingly long time to load (upwards of nearly 2 minutes) and why it crashes just as I approach the first adra column in the dream sequence at the start of the game? And of course: when might it actually be playable?
A good thing is never rushed. And I'm happy to wait.
But I thought it couldn't hurt to ask. Because Patch 1.2 didn't seem to fix anything for me.
But that's OK - I have Pillars of Eternity and the awesome Tyranny to tide me over until PoE II: DF work.
Thanks for what I am sure is an awesome game.
Have a good day!
