The game always freezes in that bit in the opening cutscene just after you see after you first see April and she's just woken up in that weird place. Help, please
There are numerous so-called 'fixes' for this issue (and it IS a BIG issue) in TLJ, and I have tried all of those I could find. To this day I have never been able to get the game to run without certain cut scenes freezing the game. The only workaround I have found -- and it's not ideal -- is to interrupt the cut scene before it finishes, by pressing the ESC key. Problem is, you don't get to see the whole scene, and you don't know which cut scene will be next to crash/freeze the game. In my case, when the cut scene gets to the end, it appears to go into some kind of infinite broken sound loop, then freezes completely.
If you search this forum you will see what a problem it is, and some of the so-called 'fixes' given. In fairness, some do seem to work for a few people, but not all -- I have not been able to play this game properly (hardly at all) because of this damn problem.
