Why does RR seem like its in slow motion?
I'm running a PIII 1.x GHZ with 512 MB of ram, winXP pro, geforce 3 video, and an ata100 hard drive. I was trying out RR to see what all the talk is about. I am impressed with abundance of features, but why is it so slow? When I load a flash skin it won't even load right, (crystal blue) and when I use a normal one (like LSX void), it seems like there is a lot of lag when you click buttons. I looked through the source and I haven't noticed anything that would cause it to slow up, unless the graphics are huge and getting loaded on command, and not beforehand.
Would using that pre-load stuff in the rrconfig help with this issue? How would that do anything for flash skins?
Also, why does rrconfig take 10 seconds to load before anything even shows? It should have a splash screen so you don't try to run it again if its going to take that long. A lot of working class people can't afford a new dual core 2 ghz machine or even the latest mini itx wonders. I'd think anything written in an older language (like vb6) should take into consideration the age of its language.
I'm not dogging on roadrunner, but I wanted to give it a good try (i've been playing with it for about 30 minutes a day before work for 2 weeks now trying skins and such) and while its got a LOT of well functioning features, and hardly any bugs, its kinda slow? Any conferrance for people using similarly paced PCs?
