Loading screen shown while loading is complete already
Closed, ResolvedPublic


When I hit "preview" in the Editor I get the "Loading Screen".
The bar goes to 100% once.
Then it starts again and the bar goes from 0 to 100 again. But the time it takes is always the same.

I figured out, during that, it doesnt really load anymore, it just shows this "animation" till its finished.

If ALT-TAB out of the game and go in again you instantly get into the mission.

This is quite annoying for testing/previewing missions.

Yeah. I also figured out, it always takes the same time. Its like a fixed animation and not loading

It also happens when you close the map while in game.

My latest observation (latest Dev Build) is...
when you hit preview for the first time, behaviour is still the same as before.

BUT...from now on, if you go back to editor and preview again the problem is gone. I'm on the map / in my mission in a matter of 2-3 seconds.
Which makes editing and testing a loooot less painful.

I wonder if it has something todo with the following note from the Changelog
"Editor loading took long when using MX rifles - fixed"
