Trying to speed up my D2 for tournaments. Here's the delays I have to deal with: Game start = 5.3 s Use WP to a new act = up to 3.5 s Exit game to title = 4.4 s Normally this doesn't bother me, but it kills me in things like the fast run tournaments. It's not "having a large map file" because I just tried start & exit with a brand new character, and there's virtually no change. As a comparison, when I go back to the same act which had already loaded, it's usually extremely fast (0.5s.) Although sometimes Kurast Docks becomes slow again. I can't nail down a pattern. I have D2 running without CD. I have an SSD. I play fullscreen. My PC is fairly potato, but has decent upgrades for the little I spent on it, and this game is many years older than it. What should I try to get rid of these delays? Relevant specs: (Windows 10 Pro) Core 2 Quad 9550 2.83 GHz 8GB DDR2 RAM GTX750 Ti 2GB Crucial MX300 525GB SSD Overall I believe my DDR2 RAM is my primary system bottleneck, but not sure why a game as old as D2 would be affected.
