Every time I try to enter East Central Ahto City on Manaan, the loading screen doesn't appear at all. I'm thrown back into a frozen version of the loading screen where the cursor doesn't move despite the animations all playing normally. I've tried playing to this point from a few different saves, but I always get the same glitch in the same spot. I'm running the Steam version of the game, and I've followed all of the Steam-appropriate fixes from this thread:
The game had been working perfectly fine on Windows 7 in windowed mode before this happened; and although I have quite a few mods installed, none of them should be affecting this area in particular.
Since this is a gamebreaking glitch, I'd appreciate if anyone had any ideas on how to fix/get around the issue. I'm happy to post system specs if anyone has any idea how to fix this. Thanks!
