The game freezes at loading screen!
I installed the game today and I have fallen in love with it again after all those years. After some little crashes here and there, I can't even get the game to work now. I changed the resolution several times but everytime I come into the loading screen before the menu comes up, the game freezes completely. Nothing happens. And when I open Task Manager he tells me that the program is giving no answer. Please help, I wanna play again!

Did you try verifying local files for the game?

In the configuration program, did you try switching to Software, rather than Direct3D? Did you hit the Reset button there?

Local files? Where are those and what do you mean by verifying?

Local = installed. You can have Steam check that game files have not become corrupt or gotten deleted, etc: Verifying Game Cache Files.

Also, are you shutting down all non-essential programs (especially anti-virus) before trying to start the game? You can even try running DD directly, without the Steam client running.
It is possible something running in the background could cause a conflict (especially if it was installed or updated around when you started having issues).

Nothing really helped, so I was brave enough to deinstall without knowing what will happen with my savegame. It's still there, so for everybody who had the same problem, I hope this helps.

You can copy/move the saves if you wish to make a backup (they are fairly compressible, so zipping them first will save space). Each save is a separate folder in the Divine Divinity install folder:

C:/Program Files/Steam/steamapps/common/divine_divinity/savegames

Under Vista/7/8, depending on how the user accounts are set up, if you install the game to the Program Files path, Windows can create separate savegame folders for each user, and then map that folder to the game's savegame folder (so it will just see the saves for the relevant user).
C:/Users/ %account name% /AppData/Local/VirtualStore/Program Files/ ..etc
