Summary 0003639: Adding the path from Wadseeker's general settings to Doomseeker's File Paths hurts WAD tooltip performance
Revision 2019-04-30 21:26 by WubTheCaptain
Description Doomseeker's Configuration UI warns you in Wadseeker's General settings if the "Directory where Wadseeker will put WADs into" isn't found in Doomseeker's "File Paths" configuration.

But if you go and "fix" it as suggested by the UI warning, you'll shoot yourself in the foot and kill your performance when displaying servers' WAD list tooltips with "Tell me where my WADs are located" enabled.

What happens is Wadseeker's general settings always add the "put WADs into" path to the File Path list unconditionally. Do as the UI says and add it to File Paths, now you have it twice in Doomseeker's internal pathfinder's path list (invisible to the user).

I'm saying the UI is wrong or confusing with a major side-effect on performance, assuming the behavior to add "put WADs into" directory to pathfinder makes perfect sense.
