I recall the bug was fixed to where it took 2 or 3 minutes for my game to load
maps, but maybe it is back.
I installed the game first, then the ECE followed by the latest patch, then
CBP1. I have not installed the CBP2 yet. Perhaps I just have cheap hardware
or not enough memory. I have 256MB RAM and I am running the game in KDE with
all apps closed. My video card uses the Nvidia drivers and has 128MB of
memory. I have a 550MB swap partition and my machine has Intel Pentium4.
It's probably time to buy a new machine though this one is only 3 yrs old. It
came with a Debian derivative installed and was built by Microtel.
