I wouldn't expect it to make too much of a difference, but you can try deleting the Thumbnails cache (same location as previous, except you go into the Thumbnails folder - you can delete all files in that folder) and you can also try the WorldCaches in the WorldCaches folder (if you don't have this folder don't worry about it, you only get it if you have certain things installed).

If it were me on my machine I'd watch what it's doing in Procmon to see if I can figure out what the holdup is, but if you don't have experience with Procmon it might be a bit confusing or it may give false impressions.

I looked in the thumbnail and worldcaches folders, but the files in there didnt have cache in the name, they were just package files. Are those the files you are talking about? And yeah I have no experience with procmon, I don't even know what it is lol. Last time I was waiting for the game to load though like in the middle of it I swear I heard that noise that occurs when a opportunity pops up and it like stops time and everything, could have just been me but idk it could mean something lol. The loading screen still went on normally with the tips and background music continuing though.

Hello,

Yes they are packages, and you can safely delete them. The game will generate new ones.

I tried deleting the thumbnails and cache files, and all other saved games, but it didn't help anything. At 1/4th of the loading bar I can hear the "play sounds", so it looks like a freeze on the loading screen or something. Any ideas?

Hello,

That simply means you forgot to copy the crack.
For future reference, we prefer it if everyone opens their own topic. That makes it easier for us to keep track of everything that's going on.
