Loading Times

Post by patroid » Fri Jun 24, 2016 10:03 pm

Hi,
I really stopped enyoing Age Of Strategy caus all loading times yust got too long.
My phone even asks me 2 times to close the game or to wait caus age of strategy does not react.
So to open the game takes me 5mins, to open a game takes me 2mins
To load ai (even small) takes 1min or more. So the playtime got less then the loadtime...what rlly shouldnt be.

Yust a hint to help finding speedup Processes:
Age of Fantasy runs rlly fast, Aoww and sws aswell.
So its not the gamedynamics that produce the lagg, but the mass of content in AOS.
Idk how you actual programmed the game, but all i got so far was a loop
That goes thruh a list of stats and checks what a object is like and then calculates actions and stuff.

Well however to load any game/screen/match/campaign is yust too long for me in AOS

The only wait that has ever really bothered me is the wait to open the building screens. Also, that issue happened suddenly wiht one update, so I don't think it has to do with massive amounts of content.

However, my device is very powerful, so I don't know how bad it is for others.

to open the game takes me 5mins - you mean launching the game from homescreen? (this related to the great amount of content)
to open a game takes me 2mins - which game is so slow? (this depends on the map size and units on it - not directly the amount of game content- however might influence)
load ai - you mean when it is the AI turn?

ok i made some speedups (hopefully speedups) on launching the app.

please make measurements on the old version before you get the new dev version.
(measure the launch time of the app minimum 5 times - thanks! - also dont forget to kill AOS from memory before launching)


thanks!
