Long Loading time FiX
the long loading time is the same issue as the first dead island one to fix this go into
and right click "logs" and hit properties then click read-only and then hit the security tab
click on your user from the list then click Deny Modify Read & execute read write then hit apply
then close out of this and load the game up Enjoy the fast load times and less micro shuters

Hope this helps you as it did me changed load times to 10 sec from 5 min

I haven't tried this yet but wouldn't this stop the game from being able to save?

@Sir Brian

it's just denying permissions to the logs folder not the whole game folder

damn can't fix it :( always damn long loading, the DI fix is more easier than this ... -.-

I'm pretty sure my game is running a lot smoother after doing this.

Oh my GOD.

This COMPLETELY fixed my issue. I had horrendous loading times, and SEVERE frame skips and drops for no apparent reason.
Moridin9 Apr 24, 2013 @ 8:34pm 
Needless to say. You, sir, are my bleeping hero. I can now, hopefully, enjoy the game I paid for. It was near unplayable with the constant hitching.

I cannot thank you enough.

Bit of a rookie mistake for a dev to ship a piece of software with verbose logging or debugging enabled.
Moridin9 Apr 24, 2013 @ 8:45pm 
This also seems to fix the fact that the game would hang whenever I exited, and the process would stay running for up to 5 minutes before closing if I didn't end the process myself. Haha.

Are you using Windows 7? Right click on the logs folder and deny all permissions to it for your windows user name.

love how simple this fix was guys last game it was just make crash.log to read only tho this time around it was making new crash files each time so locking the folder out stoped it and frees up your game stoping it taking a dump on your pc and run fast
