DESCRIBE THE ISSUE IN DETAIL (below). LIMIT TO ONE BUG PER THREAD.
Game hangs on post-loading screen for 3-5 minutes or more after launching (local game with AI). This only started happening after the latest update. Before that, it might have been on the screen for a few seconds at worst. Now it hangs there so long that I originally thought the game had frozen and I had to end task it. I only realized later on that if I just left it there it would eventually start the game, but only after waiting a good bit of time.
I tried reinstalling the game and going to default settings, no change. I don’t use any custom hotkeys or mods.
