That should be low hanging fruit and would make a great product even more enjoyable.
Been asked before and why not?

On a 12% utilised CPU, AccuRC is running @ 0.4% and Steam at 0.9% and it's taking over 30 secs to boot

Once booted, it AccuRC >6% (varies) and Steam about 1%. (waiting to select "Fly")

Waiting to release TH, AccuRC @ 20% Steam 0.5%

Flying AccuRC: 20+% to 35%

Default v3ɑ MUCH better!

On the same machine, I estimate v3ɑ is 3 times faster (ie it takes a bit over 10 secs to load to the main screen).

Hey Ade,

Does AccuRC do much network stuff as it starts up? I ask because I just tried AccuRC3 at work (we've been in COVID lockdown for a couple of weeks) and it stalled on startup (took 2 mins to start). It occurred to me that Steam is disabled for network access on our Work network. So I have to startup Steam in Offline mode and then I can run AccuRC.

Obviously, if it does any network stuff, timeout waits may be involved and that may be why people are seeing long startup times. Just a thought...

Paolo

PaoloFCantoni,

it takes the same time for me when steam is in offline mode or otherwise.

Thanks, but that might not be the same use case.

I think at home that's the case, because although I've selected offline mode for Steam, AccuRC still has access to the network if it wants it.

At work, all the appropriate ports are "closed" and so I don't have the option of starting in on-line mode. It just won't work.

Did you try blocking AccuRC from internet access at home with your firewall?

I have not. And to be honest I cannot be bothered.

I use AccuRC knowing it takes me longer to get to fly because I like it.
I don't think fixing the load times will be that easy.

However, the option to go straight to the flying field on start up should be a reasonable request.

That 'straight to the field' option certainly has my vote also
