    I've been playing through Valhalla for the second time. Everything went fine until I got to the scene in "War Weary" where the player has to choose to whom he will give some silver. I saved my progress and exited at that point this AM. This afternoon I can't get any of the half-dozen latest saves to load. It looks normal until I click "Continue" -- about five seconds later, the game closes. This was true after I verified game files. It may be coincidental, but I recall a short "update" being downloaded and installed while I was playing this morning; this is the first time I've tried to load the game since then. As far as I can tell, I'm playing version 1.5.1.

  • Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

    Strangely, I was able to fix my problem by removing some of the boilerplate video files that slow down the loading process:

    If you are playing on PC, its a simple fix. Go to the game files and find the "videos" folder. Search this folder for the following three files, and delete them, rename them, or move them to a backup folder.
    ANVIL_Logo.webm
    PC_AMD_Ryzen.webm
    UbisoftLogo.webm

    Now find the subfolder for your preferred language. For example, if your chosen language is English, look for the folder "en". There should be three webm files there. Delete them, rename them, or move them. Done.
