#4690 closed defect (fixed)

SAGA engine slow loading

Reported by: bluddy Owned by: sev-
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SAGA
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game: Inherit the Earth


Sometime since 0.13.0, something was introduced in Saga that causes load times on the PSP to go from the previous ~7 seconds to about 50 seconds. Everything else in the games works fine. I believe this problem was backported to the 1.0.0 branch after release of 1.0.0rc but I'm not 100% sure. In any case, though not a critical bug, this is something that should be sorted out. I hope to figure out exactly which patch caused this, hopefully with the help of the SAGA maintainers.

"Sometime since 0.13.0" is quite general, I'm afraid, since many changes have been made to the engine since 0.13.0. I don't have a PSP to test the regression, so you'll have to be more specific here and tell us which revision made loading so slow...

OK I was hoping you may have some insight due to the fact that it involves the loading code only -- loading during the game itself is fast. Since I'm going to do a regression dig-through on Kyrandia anyways I guess I'll do it on SAGA too :)

Ahem, this was fixed long ago. The problem was fixed by caching resource size instead of calling File.size() several thousand times on startup
