There needs to be a loading screen/window between Joining a server in the AA:PG Launcher client and the game actually loading up the game client for connecting to a server.

It is frustrating (as well as hassle) having to prompt windows to let AA:PG launcher client takes time to load the game client instead of going into a "stop-responding state".

Thank you

Isn't that what the loading videos are for? Or do you want a loading screen that comes before the loading screen?

My favorites worked fine until about 2 days ago, then they all disappeared.

No, What I mean is: Currently there isn't a loading screen between clicking the "join server" button on the AA:PG Launcher and the game actually opening.

This takes up to 5-7 minutes to launch the game if I don't force the launcher window to stop -responding, When I force the window to respond, it only take up to 2 minutes.

Adding the loading screen will save me time and hassle to get into playing AA:PG, This is something I'd put in before Officially Releasing the game.

I click "Join Server" and get a pop-up message within 2 seconds. A second or two go by and the AAPG splash screen appears. Within 10 seconds, I get the actual AA Game window appearing.

If it's taking 5-7 minutes, sounds like something's wrong.

Do you by chance have less than 4Gb RAM or a 5400rpm HDD?

ahhh, your probably trying to join a Usermade map, its the shaders building for the map on your PC, at least thats what it sounds like anyway.

if this is the case, go to Editor > Manage and click on the yellow 'Build' text next to the map you want to join.. which will build the shaders for that map, this way the map will load up a lot faster. after the first time of loading the black screen thing goes away and the map loads normally.
