While not DSfix related I'd assume people here are well-versed with the game so asking for help here:

Dark Souls 2 seems to work somehow, but in the beginning "Checking Save Data" and when loading save it takes longer than before and the animation stops, so I assume it gets stuck too.
HDD croaking or something else? Only thing I remember changing is getting new sound card, no idea if that can be causing it.
Updating my drivers to 362.00 right now and checking if reboot helps..
EDIT: Reboot and newer drivers had no effect. Any ideas?
Could be happening in other games too, haven't tried.
Afterwards tried several other games and I can definitely say it's not happening in other games, Fallout 4 works smoother and better than ever, load times are so fast.
I've tried disabling other sound controllers from Device Manager so I assume it's not audio problem either.
Also, I tried and if I wait 5 minutes in the Dark Souls 1 intro the black screen goes away and the game works normally.
I have tried with and without DSfix and occurs on both so DSfix is not causing it, I think. (Renamed the DINPUT8.dll)
