I am creating a twine story that is getting quite big. (Stats: 870k Characters, 140k + Words, 581 passages, 486 links)

After I hit the 700k character mark I started to see a significant slow down in speed. Now it's lagging severely even when I am típing inside passages.
I saw that there was some feature called "StoryIncludes" in the previous twine but it does not seem to be a thing anymore. Is there a way to circumvent this problem with twine 2? I could manage to take the story apart as long as I can make the separate twine stories merge into a single HTML file in the end with an easy method.

Thank you for your answer!

Try grunt-entwine, which lets you build stories from multiple Twine projects from the command line. That repo contains detailed instructions on what you need to do to use it. It's not as user-friendly / beginner-friendly a solution as Twine 1's StoryIncludes system, but it's the easiest way to get a similar feature in Twine 2 that I know of.

There's also Tweego.

Okay I have tried to install grunt-entwine following the instructions but the project itself (https://bitbucket.org/klembot/grunt-entwine-quickstart/get-tip.zip) cannot be downloaded since it's a dead link.

I tried searching for a live one but no luck. Any help would be appreciated.

I have tried Tweego as well and I cannot get it to work. It compiles the two html files into one but then if I try to re-import them into twine it just says "Import From File" and "working" but never actually gets anywhere.

The combined html file has all the passages in it so it might be okay but I cannot edit it in twine again like this which sort of defeats the purpouse.

Fixed in Tweego v1.0.1.

Yes, it seems to work perfectly now. Thank you!
