- How does the issue present itself?
Every time I attempt to start a game, I end up getting stuck on the loading screen. The game boots up just fine, I can play with my settings just fine, I have zero issues with people joining my games in DM Mode, but whenever I attempt to start the game, it goes to the loading screen and my computer begins to load forever. When I force the game to quit, my task manager processes says that the .exe is still running and suddenly nothing on my computer wants to respond, so I restart my computer because I have no other choice. To force quit, I have to go into the Processes tree in my Task Manager, and force the process to shut down, but even then it's hit or miss.

- Under what circumstance does it appear?
Simply trying to start a game in DM Mode. I haven't tried starting any other games because I am not going to force my computer to shut down any more and risk damaging anything.

- Do you get any error message?
No, no error message is accompanied.

- Is your computer meeting the system requirements?
Yes, my computer far exceeds the requirements for this game.

Here is the text from my dxdiag in case it helps any.

Hi NeoSteel,

Welcome to the Paradox Forums :)

As for your issue, have you tried updating your graphics card drivers, as they seem rather old:

Code:
Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit (6.1, Build 7601) Service Pack 1 (7601.win7sp1_gdr.130708-1532)
Card name: AMD Radeon HD 7800 Series
[COLOR="#FFD700"]Driver Date/Size: 12/19/2012 [/COLOR]14:08:04, 1151488 bytes
WHQL Logo'd: n/a

I haven't. I'm going to do that really quick, test the game, and then will edit with the results.

EDIT: After finding the product and searching for the drivers, it seems that my drivers are, in fact, up to date. I have uninstalled and reinstalled my GPU drivers, I will try the game and get back to this edit.

EDIT 2: So, after reinstalling my latest drivers, the game now allows me to play regular matches but perpetually puts me in a loading screen for DM Mode. The problem is not that the game stops responding or my computer locks up, the characters on the loading screen continue running. It's just that I never move beyond that screen. My fiancee's computer is practically a mirror image of my own and I built both of them. She is able to run any mode in the game with zero issues.

Sorry for the delayed reply.

Have you checked whether there could be a conflict with any antivirus/firewall blocking the game from creating a connection?

Yup. I did that. I created exceptions in my firewall and my anti-virus. The connection doesn't seem to be any kind of an issue. My fiancee can connect to my games with zero issues, the problem comes when I try to start the DM Mode game. Her and I tried to run a DM Mode with her computer (which worked fine before I joined it.) and once I was in the game lobby, she started the game and the exact same thing happened. So, when I start a DM Mode game, I get stuck on a loading screen, regardless if I'm hosting it or someone else is.
