Descriptive Problem Summary:
In a couple of 'resource monster' games, such as card games that need to have icon images of hundreds of cards (that's thousands of icons total!)
They have nearly 30+MB in Resource Files, excluding images needed for skins, sounds, etc.
Now, this seems all good, but what it does is pretty frustrating. Now and again, we'll need to download the resources for the game everytime we log in, they are never permenately cached. They seem to 'vanish' the second you log out.
Is there some sort of limit on resource file limits, to prevent it from being cached?
Numbered Steps to Reproduce Problem:
1.) Join a 'Resource Monster' game
3.) Join and see if you have to re-dl resources
For the resources to be cached overnight, if you need to log out to run an errand.
Have to sit through 20+ Minutes of resource downloading everytime you want to join the game
Does the problem occur:
Every time? Or how often? Everytime you log out, then back in
In other games?Yes
In other user accounts? Yes
On other computers? Yes
When does the problem NOT occur? If the game isn't a resource monster?
Here are the resource monsters I know of that are effected by this possible cache limit, if it exists:
