My game will not load from the Esc Menu. The Start Game at the main menu loads the last saved game fine, and running a Benchmark test will start a new game fine, but trying to start a new game or load a saved game from the Esc Menu takes me to a never-ending loading screen. It doesn't seem to freeze up and the game runs smoothly but it just will not load.
I have the latest patch to the game and only run it on moderate graphics settings, and just so you know my system:
Windows XP 32 bit Service Pack 3
NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GT 512 MB
2 GB RAM
AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 6000+ 3.01 GHz
