remove the intro videos
Did that, still takes a long time to load.
for some reason removing the intro videos (for me) made the game unlaunchable. it would open, start loading, and them immediately shut down until I restored the intros.
This is the case for me as well, used to work just fine until last week.
How's your internet? You are talking slow multi-player loading right? Can it be the assets( maps/mode/players) downloading are slow? Maybe hardwire instead of wifi?
I'm talking about slow launching of the game into the main menu, my internet's fine, ethernet with 500mbps download speed.
Did you find a fix?
No, but using an M2 SSD which is ~7x faster than a normal SSD makes it instant according to some of my friends.
I have a M2 myself and still having this issue. Do you have AMD by any chance? My friends with Nvidia load the game almost instantly
I do have an AMD GPU.
I'll open a ticket with AMD and 343 and let you know if I find anything
Just want to chime in on this. I have AMD in two of my computers and both have the slow loading time no matter what I do. I have Nvidia in my gaming laptop and the game loads almost instantly. Is there anyway to plus one the issue?
I think the best way is opening your own ticket about the issue. If they get enough they'll start investigating, hopefully.
Could also be that _others_ are being loaded to the map, if you’re speaking of MP.
My main problem is loading into the main menu.
Check if there are updates available.
That’s what happens to me when the game just “hangs” on that loading window after the Microsoft and 343i splash screens.
I restarted Steam just in case, no update.
Open up task manager and check how the disk is performing.
Remember that it's better to have a separate disk for games and OS, so you don't bottleneck loadings because of other processes.
I have an SSD just for the OS, drivers and some programs; and another one for games.
I've never looked at my Disk's performance before, so I don't know what exactly to look for, average response time seems fine, the read speed goes from 12 kb/s to over 70 mb/s while loading. [Screenshot](https://i.imgur.com/i20VMh4.png) of what it looked like \~70% into loading the main menu.
I'm not a big PC guy but those read write speeds seem extremely low for an SSD, probably even low for an external HDD.
You might want to ensure if it's external it has a proper cable that can handle the higher speeds, usb3 (not usb2), sata3, etc. If it's plugged in directly to your motherboard.. not sure but maybe a similar issue.
Also check out another hdd benchmarking tool to test your ssd to find out their limit, and check with your ssd manufacturer/model to see what it should be to know if you're in range.
