Is there any way to change the time out value? Timing it last night, it looks to be 100 seconds. If I could change that to 10 through a config file that would be perfect.
If that is not possible, is there a chance that the game could load up to the menu, and then either wait until I attempt multiplayer or try and update before trying to connect. It is highly annoying that I can crawl under my desk, unplug the network, start up Elemental, crawl under again, plug the network back in, and still be playing faster than if I start by waiting for the timeout to expire.
