Perhaps it's something more sinister like cache misses in the code.

AMD Athon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 3800 (2CPUs), ~2.0Ghz

Not the best, but the worst either. The normal content for Uru always runs fine for me even at full detail. Only this and one other fan age (latest Tvel) gives me problems so far.

I bet you're right, Dustin. Right now, the waveset's refresh rate is set to 3 seconds, which is awfully frequent considering the sun/sky doesn't change that often. I'll try bumping it up to 60 seconds in the next release. I'm currently reworking the ocean and a couple other things; hopefully it will be available this Sunday sometime.

[EDIT 2009/11/15] I changed the wavesets in the latest release (see this thread). Give this a try and see if the pauses all but disappear.
Can we rebuild it? Yes, we can - here's how.

Unrelated, but I won't start a new thread...


I tried recompiling Rell-Too and it most certainly makes a significant difference in file size! Unlike Robert, though, I ran into a little problem:

The two subworlds in the age.

Upon decompiling I get a warning that they are STUBs, whatever that means - I guess the objects are somehow incomplete, truncated, or otherwise and possibly thrown away as garbage...
Code: Select all
Warning: Type [00E2]plHKSubWorld is a STUB
Warning: Type [00E2]plHKSubWorld is a STUB

Then compiling:
Code: Select all
pdUnifiedTypeMap::ClassIndex ERR: Got class hsKeyedObjectStub
pdUnifiedTypeMap::ClassIndex ERR: Got class hsKeyedObjectStub
Object for <10335|0>[00E2]SubworldGondola does not exist
Object for <10335|0>[00E2]Elevator_subworld does not exist
Got erroneous key: <10335|0>[00E2]SubworldGondola
Got erroneous key: <10335|0>[00E2]Elevator_subworld


Playing the recompiled age, the objects (animated empties, which are defined as a subworld and has visuals as children) move along properly, but there are, as one might expect, no subworlds to enter.

Any ideas on what I might be missing, anybody?

The "STUB" means that subworlds are not yet properly implemented in libPlasma

Aha. Thanks, diafero. So it's not entirely my being an idiot, for once... :7
