Only 11 seconds to load DTM2014 Audi test drive!:confused:
Practice mode in ADAC 2014 is still about 45 seconds tho.

Is Sector3 applying loadtime improvements? If so they're tracing a good path to follow. 1 entire minute for a race is not something we want to see/wait for a game in 2014/15 imo.

I hope so! My load times take ages. I usually get up, go do a couple chores, walk the dog, have a smoke, maybe a short nap, then get back in the rig just in time for the race to load up.

I find it varies sometimes really fast others really slow, but my son's pc is always slow and he's got a better setup than me :-o

loading times have effectively improved for some races...for example single races at Monza seems to load much faster...other ones are slow as ever...

I moved my R3E install to an SSD many months ago and load times are still as slow as ever.

Nope...My newborn son, who I`d just welcomed into the world when I clicked "Go Race", has now started at University. I expect him to have qualified as a doctor by the time I`ve managed to exit the game...;):laugh:

Have the feeling it takes longer after the update but I mainly did MP races and it seems to be connected to my low internet bandwidth. I could reduce loadtime a lot by switching off track details. ..like half time of the loadtime before. Since the update it takes much longer. But I also couldn't join once a 92 race at Zolder due the high ping. On the other side I often think it's a well defined break not to dehydrate or do some other stuff between the races as it became very hard to quit MP sessions since dtm92 is out.

From my understanding it's a server side issue.
We can even use quantum computers... but if the response with the server is slow...we'll get a quantumly slow loading time!

Hopefully some optimisation can be achieved there. Load times aren't completely terrible but you know things can be better.

Well. I remember to wait 1 and a half minute when I bought DTM-E 2013 and now loadtime is 23 sec. Loadtimes have improved surely.

Seems random for me....some days/hours faster some not, but certainly no different than when they first patched this build...but that is just my experience.

I just can't wait for a patch to fix all the problems cropped up from this update.

25 seconds (maximum) to load DTM 2014/ADAC 2014.
1280x720
Fullscreen ON
vSync OFF
Track Quality MEDIUM
Car Quality HIGH
Particles Quality LOW
Bloom Effect ON
Light Effect ON
Antialiasing 2x

If any other setting is not on this list it's because I set it at its LOWEST value or OFF.
