My game freezes at the "Square Enix" logo after starting every time. I let it sit around for about 10 minutes and then I can play the game with no problem. It's stupid. I thought it was my antivirus messing me up, but nope.
Can you tell me your graphics card? I just figured out that I can get past the loading screen if I run the game off my integrated Intel card but not off my AMD 7800 card.
I'm getting frequent freezing on my 7800 (can't play with Crossfire at all, have to use one card). It's not to where I can't play, happens maybe every hour and a half, but the points at which it happens seem pretty random.
