Clicking on Campaigns trigger a 5s+ freeze
Closed, ResolvedPublic


As the title says, clicking on Campaigns trigger a 5s+ freeze, most likely for config loading. This should ideally not happen unless -filePatching is used (reloading \Campaigns directory).

Cannot really reproduce. I get about a 1 second freeze, maybe less than that.

Okey its 2.7 seconds, and its spent loading config files, the description.ext's and mission.sqm's of all the campaigns and their missions (which is probably why it takes so long for you, you probably played more missions than I did)

Oof, okey reproduced with 10 seconds freeze.
I can get rid of about 25% of that, but seems like not much more.

I also found a way to improve performance of all config loading, so that should help a little.

Nice! I wonder if it is possible to cache that on the first loading, unless -filePatching is used?

Some improvements have been made, cut about 20% of the time off.
All other ideas I have are too big/problematic.

Even if i cache, which yes I could do, most players open the dialog once or twice per Arma start, and the first click will still freeze as much as it does now.
If any mission.sqm/description.ext is loaded twice that would help out there. But the fix I did was already the description.ext's being loaded twice.

Won't fix for the rest, dev-branch not this week

well, thanks for that anyway! 👍
