GTA Online. Infamous for its slow loading times. Having picked up the game again to finish some of the newer heists I was shocked (/s) to discover that it still loads just as slow as the day it was released 7 years ago.
It was time. Time to get to the bottom of this.
First I wanted to check if someone had already solved this problem. Most of the results I found pointed towards anecdata about how the game is so sophisticated that it needs to load so long, stories on how the p2p network architecture is rubbish (not saying that it isn’t), some elaborate ways of loading into story mode and a solo session after that and a couple of mods that allowed skipping the startup R* logo video. Some more reading told me we could save a whopping 10-30 seconds with these combined!Source: t0st
Rockstar, you had one simple job and you fucked up! This fix had cost about one hour of work, but you decided to release an unfinished game when the hardware available at that time wasn’t even capable of playing the game with maximum details. And now you wonder why people are mad at you. *facepalm*
Players trying to launch Tron: Evolution are now met with a message telling them that the ‘serial key has expired’. This applies to the retail version as well as the Steam version which is delisted from the store. Players who previously bought the game from Steam cannot play the game.Source: PCGamingWiki
I guess, pirates don’t face this issue.
