BC2 Really Slow Loading Times

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Currently using 11.7 with 11.6 CAP3, and it seems as though this problem has only gotten worse, with 11.7 giving me the longest loading times I've ever endured. I'm getting really tired of loading in after everyone else, and my friend with a single Samsung F1 loads up much, much faster than me, when I should be loading up significantly faster than him.

Anyone have any solutions so I can load up quickly as I used to with old 10.X drivers? I upgraded from those drivers due to the annoying flashing texture bugs and CTDs, but it seems like I have to either choose between stable gameplay, or fast loading times. I want both!! I'll be extremely grateful if anyone can help.

So, installing newer graphics drivers has resulted in longer load times? But theoretically the load times would be most like affected by HDD performance etc.

Either than or something else is eating your CPU/GPU time in the background.

Yes, I have longer load times than using Catalyst 10.X. By the time I load up, people are already hopping in tanks and going. This is the same problem from 2010 where ATI was supposed to fix the long load times, it never worked for me. Surely I'm not the only one with this problem?

How's the speed of the rest of your system? Does Windows load quickly? Is your RAID setup working 100%?

Yes, Windows loads quickly and my RAID setup works great for fast loads in any other game but BC2.

Man, I wish I could help, I know that this has been an issue with many people for specifically BC2. The only thing I might recommend is an OS reinstall, as much of a pain as that is.

Try defraging your HDD. Uninstall the drivers, restart (allow the generic Windows drivers to take over), then install latest drivers and restart again.

I doubt this will help but try the 11.8 preview version. Also, this slow loading in BC2 is indeed driver (catalyst) related. Nothing to do with HDDs. I remember getting slow loads using 10.4 or lower and one day updated to new versions and it was gone.

I'd suggest trying 11.8 Preview + 11.7 CAP 1. Those seem to be the best for an HD5970 right now.

Just some general info. I can't help you if it's a video card problem as you are suggesting but BC2 generally takes a long time to load due to big maps. With my SATA 3 SSD it still takes a while to load but a quite a bit less than with a 10000RPM HD. Yours is probably 7200rpm so you should expect even longer loading times.
