Hello, thanks for the comment!
It sounds like your game is running dramatically slower than it's supposed to. I've watched a bunch of videos and live streams of the game, and there haven't been performance issues like this before like in this video . The sections you're describing as having problems are when the game is adding images to your computer's memory.
- Are you running the game from a D: drive? A user reported that when they tried running it from their D: partition, they had ridiculous load times on animations (10 sec+) but moving the game folder to C: and running it from there greatly improved performance.
- Are you using a particularly slow computer? That would affect how quickly the game can load animations.
- If neither of these work, what specs are you running + what version of the game do you have? This info might help me figure out what the problem is.
