Freeze on loading screen when exiting battle map
So I've had this happen probably a dozen times in the past week. I was waiting it out hoping it would get fixed but doesn't seem to be reported by anyone else on this thread at least.
The game is freezing on the loading screen between the exiting of the battle map going to the world map.
Location: Doesn't seem to matter
It doesn't seem to crash the program though. I noticed if I let it run after the freeze (I let it go for like 15 mins once) it continues to play the "your peasants need jobs..." notification periodically even though it's still showing just the load screen. And when I go to kill the program it doesn't show as "not responding", just kills it and done.
Reloading loses all progress since entering the home city screen the last time.
Hope this helps! Let me know if I'm kicking a dead horse here and there's already a work around that I missed.
