Disk loading stutters: We’re working on the disk asset loading stutters as well. In an upcoming patch, some of the prefetching in the game is being changed which should help with the stuttering.
Is this still being worked on?
Because it's far from fixed, i have a death or a near death at almost every start of my runs due to loading game assets from disk.
I also have to start every hardcore run on softcore to preload effects, location etc. My friends also do this and they have even better computers than mine.
I dont really want to buy an SSD at this point and not sure it it'd even help much.
If you guys gave us an option to select which assets (or classes of assets) to preload at the start of the game, and which to load on the fly - it would be great. Really great. I hate dying due to the game being unresponsive.
