Why is loading a design puzzle so slow ?
Have the load and save routines been reviewed ? It really takes minutes on my fastest system.

I would recommend to load the entire file in one operation, then disect it in memory, rather than go through a loop and load it piece by piece (as I suspect it to be done right now).

I believe on a design puzzle the game must load an extra database, the one containing fragments. From a release note in January: "Remix backend now only loads when you enter a design puzzle. This will speed up load times for non-design puzzles."
