    If I want to start the game there is a very long loading screen with the Dovetail Logo. Even on the PS4 Pro. It takes nearly 5 minutes to get into the game. May be TSW is getting to big with all its DLCs, so the loading time increases...
    Furthermore the BR 155 has still no correct mileage display in the menu. I've been driving her for a few hours now and the display shows 0 km, in contrast to all other locomotives.

    Is the hard drive it's installed on nearly full? If so, that can cause load times to be slower.

    Hi, i do have the same issue though. It's just with the new update, and the HDD is just fine. Got a 4TB and there is plenty of space. The update must have something ruined with the load up screens of TSW. :/

    I know what you mean. The first "Train Simuator" from Microsoft had the same problem: the more DLCs the slower the loading screen on PC. But I think the PS4 and TSW have a different system architecture to deal with this problems. Caused through high res textures and extra content nowdays games can reach easily 100 GB and more. For example Gran Turismo currently has 103 GB and the loading screen takes the same time as ever...

    Yes normally it’s a minute or two but after yesterday’s patch it was about 5 mins. I only launched once after the patch though, was it perhaps rebuilding something post patch or is it now doing this after every launch?

    Hi everyone, thanks for letting us know. This is definitely unusual.

    We are aware of the issue and looking into it. The game will still load after some time, loading times will vary, but please do let us know if it takes longer than 3-5 minutes.

    Again, we are looking into it right now. Apologies for any inconvenience, I will keep you updated.

    i just reloaded again and it took 4 mins for the white screen to disappear and 2 mins for the black screen after it to disappear. All in all more or less 6-7 mins to load up

    Can we get that first DTG splash screen changed to a dark background at some point? Burns the retinas a wee bit.

    FYI, we identified the issue with slow loading on PS4, but we will need at least a day to get a patch ready and certified. Regarding issues with scenarios on NTP, we will look closer at it - scenarios themselves haven't changed but signaling did change after the update which may be causing issues. It is likely that a patch will be ready early next week.

    FYI the latest patch released today DID NOT fix the loading times, in fact they're worse. 10 minutes stuck on the white DTG screen burning my eyeballs. Gave up and turned it off. Fix this asap, hundreds of dollars worth of DLC going to waste. Infuriating.
