I want to share some ideas which may influence speed of game/loading/performance.

First are the obvious.

1. Delete temporary game files. If you are playing for a long time, and you haven't done it before, it would really help.
How-to: Click start -> run or press Win(button with windows logo) + R and type %temp% then enter.
Seek for DSOClient folder. Make sure your game is closed. Delete this folder with all the content.
After that FIRST start of the game/first enter of each map, will take a bit longer - client will download all files again.
Usually this helps to avoid often nebula crushes.

2. Update your Java environment.
How-to: Go to java.com -> download, get the latest version. If you have 64-bit system, download both x86 and x64.

More advance:

3. Create separate Temp logical/physical drive.
This is one of the best ways to speed up the game, since it uses System Temp directory.
It's really good for those who uses SSD drives to increase their life time. Cause files in TEMP directory are shuffled really often. And basic HDD are better to handle that than flash drives.
If you have second HDD drive (using same drive as system wont make huge change), create new logical partition, call it Temp, choose letter T for drive (or whatever).
Make sure it's about 4Gb (or more) so it wont run out of space. (In my experience game files went up to ~900 Mb but you need more space for others programs and system things)
Go to System properties -> Advance settings -> Environment variable -> you should see on the list variables called TEMP and TMP in both, user & system windows. Now edit them, if you selected your temp drive letter "T" set new value to " T:\ " - without " "
Now all the files created by the game should be stored in this new drive. Which makes it faster to access if it's separate physical HDD (not the one you installed your system on)

4. Ram-disc - for advanced users.
Other option for system TEMP directory is to create Ram disc - this is extremely efficient drive . It's a logical partition created on RAM memory installed in your PC.
Thats good for those who have 8+Gb of RAM installed. (cause all the memory you declare to use will be deducted from available RAM - until you uninstall RAM-disc)
There is many programs offering RAM-disc creating. I wont bring here any, don't wanna make advertisement ;)
You can google for more info about how to use/create it, there is plenty of tutorials.

Good luck and have fun :)
