Default Problem with .dbc files
Recently i've decided to play the game again and installed a lot of custom content. However i've run into a problem where my game won't load if I have more than 3 .dbc files in DCCache folder. It doesn't matter which cc is installed - the second a forth file (entitled dcbd3.dbc) appears, the game freezes on loading (it only shows a black screen with a rotating cursor, before the logos movies). The launchers also starts freezing upon trying to install or uninstall any cc. If I remove the file from the folder everything goes back to normal.
Has someone had a similar problem and is there any way to solve it apart from not installing as much content? My computer is fairly powerful, and I have all expansion packs and stuff packs installed aside from Island Paradise.

Not sure if there's a dbc limit, but why not convert some cc to packages?

I actually didn't know you could do that - my experience with the mods is very limited. Is there a good tutorial on how to do this?

Remember, if you do that, you'll want to look into merging your package files.
