Fix Loading Times

Fix Loading Times

Postby Halleck » Tue May 16, 2006 2:42 pm

Improves loading-times between zoning (ie: switching continents, entering/ leaving an instance). This works by preventing numerous events from being processed by the event-handlers during zoning, events that would otherwise update your interface with information that you simply won't need when you are starring at a loading-screen. Depending on your system and installed addons, zoning will be 5-10 times faster (no kidding: for me as an example, MC loads in 6-8s instead of over 1 minute).

use /nFLT to cycle between different modes:

on (with messages) - the default
on (without messages)
off (with messages)

With messages, it shows how long zoning took and how many events had been processed. When using [off (with messages)] you can see how much time passes when all events are being processed, so you can compare your loading times with and without FLT turned on.

And it really does work great!

This has made a huge improvement in load times for me. :)

This makes a ridiculous difference in time loading. I walked into the Tram 'instance' and it loaded in under a second!

This is an awesome add-on. There is no reason everyone should not get this.
