Descriptive Problem Summary:
The bigger the list the slower the chat seems to load.
Numbered Steps to Reproduce Problem:
I created a list of pre-loaded icons for quick reference and the bigger this list got the slower chat seemed to become. I believe the list count got up to the thousands but even at 250 the chat would show a noticeable delay.
Nothing should be slowing down.
Nothing slows down.
Does the problem occur:
Every time? Or how often? Every time.
In other games? Untested.
In other user accounts? Yes.
On other computers? Yes.
When does the problem NOT occur?
When the icon list doesn't get as high.
Did the problem NOT occur in any earlier versions? If so, what was the last version that worked? (Visit http://www.byond.com/download/build to download old versions for testing.)
Unknown. I only tried it and discarded it above 440.
Don't let the list get high with icons. I used an alternative of breaking the list into savefiles which are then loaded when referenced instead. I just thought it was interesting enough to mention since it actually lagged chat and nothing else surprisingly.
