During loading in TRPG2, there were hints and advise at the top.  I would like for that to return in TSoG.  Does anyone share that opinion?

Actually, I'd prefer a game of Psy Wars that you can play while you wait.

Does it take that long to load?

Many games have a mini-game to play while the game is loading. It simply occured to me that it might be fun to put psy wars on the loading screen. And I doubt psy wars would take all that long to load, if that's what you are getting at. Still, tips might be a good idea.

That's not it, im2smart4u meant that Psy Wars is a pretty long game, even for one session, and thus was asking if TSoG really took that long to load for anyone.

I see. Well, the ability to play psy wars can only be a perk, really; even if loading finishes before psy wars you might well choose to finish your game, and it would provide a useful alternative to total boredom for people with slow internet.
