When I first played Divinity 2 (It was a wile ago) I think I read somewhere saying something about ending the conversation with the girl before you leave the starting area. I'm pretty sure I tried it and it didn't do anything and then I never played it again and waited for a patch. But who knows when we will get one, if I can get past that loading screen I will keep playing. I'll try it later and let you know if it works.
Also, I'm not talking about stuttering in game, I'm talking about the actual movies that play (The Intro for example) It plays really, really slow and choppy. The last time I Played it I ALT+Tabbed out and quickly went back in and then it would fix it, but now when I try that it doesn't work anymore.
I remember the last time I played I had stuttering problems the second time I opened it up but they sort of stopped when I closed a bunch of programs in tab manager.
I hope they release a patch soon.
