I have played this game for years and the newest update on Beamdog (2.0 patch download) has slowed the game down to a crawl when entering a building, loading, saving moving to a new map etc... The gameplay itself is still perfectly fine, so i don't think it's the Intel issue or a graphics card issue. I can move around the map with no lag, cast tons of spells with no lag, but when I save or go to a new area, it takes almost 2-3 minutes to proceed. I'm not sure if this is related mods, but I play with the following (with this install order):
weimer item upgrade
unfinished business (uninstalled, as i thought this was causing the issue, it wasn't)
dungeon be gone
g3 bg2 tweaks
I also tried a few NPC mods (Fade, Kelsey), but have uninstalled them as well, thinking that may have been the issue, again, ho change.
I'm not sure if it's related to newest upgrade (patch 2.0) or not, but I am almost certain that that is when is started sowing down.
I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling numerous times, no change. I've restored to original version, no change.
Just two weeks ago, I had no issues at all, which was the first time playing the game in nearly a year. And that is when i noticed the "update". When it first started, it was just every 4th or 5th time or so when going to a new area. Now it is every single time, and any time I save or load a game.
It also crashes occasionally at the same times. I really am not a computer guy, so an help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you all!
