Re: How to Improve Performance
- Thanks, wizard_thoarin. This has helped quite a bit. I had previously
bumped up my allocation to 256 / 512. Doubling that, as per your
suggestion, has reduced my waiting time enough to make the program
However, I am still unhappy with the speed of using this program. I
don't see why switching a tab should take 5 or more seconds. Here are
my answers to questions Tom Parker asked me in regards to this issue:
> How many sources are loaded?Normally, only the RSRD(?) for D&D 3.5. I've since reduced this to the
RSRD source that excludes Psionics.
> Are the sources from CMP or distributed by PCGen?I don't know what CMP is. I haven't added any sources to PCGen, if
that answers the question.
> How many PCs are open?Sometimes one, sometimes a dozen. My general slowness is experienced
with just one PC open, though I do notice a significant increase in
that slowness for more than 4 characters.
> What levels are the PCs?Usually from 1st to 3rd level.
I'm still hesitant to use DMGen again during a playing session. It
takes a long time to load (I typically do so with 3 or 4 PCs open),
and it takes a long time to switch tabs.
Thanks to everyone for your help.
