Ok, well on any server I play on, maps load like this:0%-99% in around 1 minute. Then 99%-100% in about 1 minute and sometimes going over. Why is it taking this long to load 1%? I'm missing the 1st spawn a lot of the time because of this. FH runs fine when it is playing, and the only time fps goes down for me it is for everyone, even on servers on another continent. I really dont think its my specs as the comp has TONS of things on it as it is a family computer and it can still run things like BF2 fine. So I want an answer before I dish out my specs (reason is I dont really know what they are as I helped my dad build the comp, but he didnt tell me what exactly things were, just "this is the so-and-so card" and not "this is a ATI 9999 zipditydoda.").
I think it is finishing loading the map when it hangs at 100%. I load maps in ~35 secs and it always hangs for about 10 secs at 100% then I am presented with the map introduction screen and just me in the scoreboard :D
Have you tried de-fragging your HDD? That can cut quite abit off the loading time if your HDD is very fragmented.
check this out this thread i made. while rare, if your computer suffers from it, then you should defenitly follow the instructions.
Well i havent defragged yet (it needs it) so thanks for the heads up. @charelsbian: Well I dont have that problem, but i might take the advice of that other post that is down the page, if I can only find event viewer. I dont like digging through my system like this but I will do this crasy stuff if I back it up so thanks for the help. Btw unlike Bf2 where it just takes a little while to load, my FH hovers at 99 or 100%. My biggest example is Counterattack 1940(? @year) where it literally takes 5 seconds to get to the hover point then taking 4ever.
I think it definately has to do with your computers processing spead and yeah de-fragging may help. But I know what you mean. Some of my maps get to 40% and hover for up to 40secs then finish quickly. But as MG42Maniac said, it generally takes 35secs to minute to load maps, perhaps your sick of those pictures and it seems longer? Least thats what I feel, just my 2 cents
