I've been meaning to bring up this issue again, as there has been reports of problems with long loading times for the game 'our darker purpose' of up to 5 minutes: http://www.scirra.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=79206&PID=497902&title=our-darker-purpose-has-launched-on-steam#497902
As such I want to reiterate the importance of having control over the way C2 loads assets, as I described here: http://www.scirra.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=83807&PID=489467&title=suggestion-load-the-necessary-images-of-layout#489467
Ashley - please consider adding this! Loading everything at the start into RAM is not optimal for all games. You could have it as an option so only advanced users would use it, if you're concerned about confusing newer users. Many, many pro games do this sort of thing, and with the extra controls we could do things like make loading screens ourselves and make the game start faster as we control the rest of the game loading in the background while the player plays.
