Verified by backing up then deleting HallofFame.sqlite and then game boots up from steam at normal speed. Where as after spending all morning loading old save games, my HallofFame.sqlite became corrupted somehow and caused Civ6 to slow down to a crawl, cpu usage to shoot up, and some games won't load at all. Also Final victory screens would take several minutes to load. The problem became worse and worse as more games were put into the hall of fame. Not sure if this is a problem with my hall of fame games (no major mods, but some were played with Ynamp) or just too many games in general causes this. Deleting the file returns speed to normal, putting the file back in place causes it to slow down again. Gathering Storm version: 18.104.22.1680 (405094) My file size before I backed it up was 118,852 kb.
