    Yesterday i installed potc, and the loading and saving takes ages! when i load a savefile after i just started the game it can take upto 30 minutes! saving the game differs from where i save. ex. if i save in douwesen it takes under a minute. when i tried saving on the little island of isla muelle, for the mission that ends there, it took about 30-40 minutes before i gave up

    the game also runs extremely slow in some menus, like inventory, shops and vendors, every shipyard. but again, some places it runs not to slow, again douwesen vendors on the dock, almost at the normal speed. also isla muelle trading with companions, outside the tavern, went completely normal, but for the most parts, i have to wait 5 minutes every time i'm going to buy, sell, trade or equip something. but the weird thing is, it seems to speed up slightly if i move the mouse-pointer around, except for saving and loading.

    my computer is a fairly ok stationary computer with AMD Radeon R9 390 series graphics-card and a Intel Core i5-6500 CPU @ 3.20GHz with 16 gb of GDDR5 Ram. and every thing is up to date.

    the game is playable for me, but incredible annoying! does anyone have any fixes or something?
