After selecting a profile, the game takes over 20 mintues to load, irrespective of the mods installed, the server selected, or the profile selected. In single player mode, the game takes seconds to load at this same point.
Another potential symptom is, if I alt tab during this loading cycle, the game goes from "not responding" (and using a lot of CPU) to "Suspended" (And using 0 cpu). At this point the only option left is an end task via task manager.
Win 10 64 bit system. Steam is active at the time I hit "launch <gamename (ATS or ETS2)>" on the truckers MP window. This happens EVERY time, so its not a cache load issue.
Both games are installed in steam libraries on SSDDs with nothing else on it.
