Games take 5 min to open (Steam)
« on: August 12, 2018, 01:35:08 PM »
This might be a problem with my PC, not the games themselves, but maybe someone has the same issues/idea how to fix it.

Don't remember if it's all WE/AGS games, but I remember the ones I've played recently, Technobabylon, Shardlight & Unavowed all take maybe 5 minutes to start through Steam. Both the actual game as well as opening the setup.

First nothing happens, then the Steam window kinda shifts & goes low res a bit, at one point my mouse froze for a few seconds. Then the game icon appears on the task bar, but no game open itself, even after clicking the icon. Then, later, the game opens and runs just fine (usually).

I got a decent PC, dual monitors, Win10, don't usually have any issues. Tried changing to DirectDraw5 (I think it was?) on Shardlight, but didn't change anything.

So dunno, if anybody has any ideas if there's a fix. Or, if you've got similar problems & think the game isn't loading at all... just wait, it might come eventually haha.
