#952 closed enhancement (fixed)

Loading a few buildpics simultaneously causes a perceptible judder

Keywords: Cc:


When you first select a factory, or a builder, that causes a noticable lag. Could the pics corresponding to a faction be preloaded?

They already are (all) preloaded and I don't get any noticeable lag from sMenu. Need more info here.

If I try to view very many build pics at once in a fresh game (/give all + ctrl a) I do get maybe 1/2 sec lag, so there is something fixable here.

Maybe preloading the chili controls doesn't preload the images they display.

Confirmed using /debug and watching CBitmap::Load

It's fixable with a change to Chili, not yet sure of the cleanest way to implement a shortcut through Chili's queueing system.

Could you test this again? It's probably not fixed but in theory it should be improved by [4338].

A full fix requires a change to Chili, jK recognized that its a Chili issue and plans to write a patch.

It is very very much improved, barely perceptible now. Thanks very much!
