Boot loading issue.

Post by DoomsdayDragonfire » Fri May 17, 2019 6:01 pm

This long boot loading is starting to be really, really anoying to some ppl... Something must be made in order to drastically reduce that!

My suggestion is to make the game load just the necessary stuff as menu files/options, Help text and crash reports. The rest (as units and maps) can be loaded while the user is spending time on the menus deciding what to do, by doing this, we could just mask most of the load on background. Keeping the user enterteined inside the game.
Breaking the barrier of "work for the job" to "put the job to work for you" is a thing that i want to reach someday aswell... Probably i should make some notes about it...

In my opinion I think it depends On device
I got a new phone within a month and it loads the game much faster than my last device
Infact within seconds ( 15 secs tops )

Old device took 40 secs to a minute

I know, i still keep that old device and on it is quite absurd the waiting time for it to open there, but since i got a new one, it won't botter me, but some of my friends started to complain about it aswell and they don't have conditions to buy a newer phone right now like me... So That started to worry me again, so i was thinking about what could be done to mask that.

I won't say that they must buy a new device (everyone knowns if he can or want to fo it) but at least the game loads also for all devices.

Adding content is something we do to make the game more various and interesting, so I guess increasing loading time can't be helped

atually it can be helped and i will!

it was wrong aproach to load everything (not only speed but memepry comsumption too) i should load the things when they are needed.

so i will measure (profile) things and i will start cutting down the time consuming ones - and either load in background (while user is in the menu) or only load on need.

with each new update the game is longer loaded (AOF), are you going to do anything about it?

I think loading on menu background causes less lag than on need.
