Windows fucked up the game once again. Ever since the latest windows 10 update, the loading times have become a lot worse.
Previously, I only had those loading times once (ascii-symbols being loaded in the top left corner) when starting the game, when changing acts for the first time and upon minimizing/maximizing the game.
But now, it has become even worse. Now, before the ascii-symbols are loaded, the screen simply stays black for about 5 seconds.
What's even worse is the transition from act 4 to act 5. First the screen stays black for 5 seconds, then the ascii symbols are loaded and this process is repeated 3 times (screen black--> ascii symbols --> screen black --> ascii symbols --> screen black --> ascii symbols). So it basically takes somewhere between 20 and 30 seconds to get from act 4 to act 5 now. I assume that this process is now repeated once for each video sequence starting (Even though I don't even have them installed) instead of only once per resolution re-adjustment.
Is there any way to fix this? Or is something like a hotfix that disables the starting of video squences planned? I mean srsly... we all know those videos already. Why even keep them in?
On a side note: Hyena strike seems awefully flawed. In terms of single target damage, it is completely outclassed by a 1-pointer Great Hunt. It's also a lot harder to get the Fury bonus since you get only 1 orb instead of 4-10 like from Great Hunt to run/pounce into.
Curare seems to be bugged. When I ran through terror act 5, I noticed that some enemies won't be poisoned (First some clans (cold immune) and later Razor fur Titans(magic immune)). Not only didn't they turn green, they also wouldn't lose any health over time. I was able to "fix" that bug by re-applying Bloodlust. Active buffs at that time: Takedown & Fury, while pouncing all the way.
