I am wondering what I can do to reduce my load time on initial log in, which is often several minutes, and sometimes so long that I get disconnected and have to go through it again (though the disconnect only happens the first time).
I looked around for an up to date version of Warmup (the only version I could find was from December last year) or some other addon to tell me which mods are the worst for my long load.
Also, I am using all embedded libraries. Would switching to standalone help with my loadtime? Also, is kosher to switch to standalone? I remember reading about problems using standalone and that embedded was recommended.
I am running on a 1.86 Ghz machine with 1.5 GB of ram.
If you want to de-embeddify them (but I'd first do a clean-up like I described above), after having everything installed (with embedded libraries), download "!!!StandaloneLibraries" in WoWAceUpdater, then update everything with externals. Then you should have a BUNCH of new folders under Interface\Addons\ . Then run WoWAceUpdater again, and do the "Reinstall all addons" - it should download the actual addons without Externals this time, it'll say so at the start of the download.
Should I worry that !!!StandaloneLibraries shows as Outdated in WAU?
Also, on the final 'Reinstall all addons' step -- it downloads some of them with externals :-/ (even though I have a default to no externals)
After reading those threads, I thought I'd try out using disembedded libraries.
But since many of my addons are class-specific, now I have the trouble of figuring out which libraries I need to enable for each of my characters so I'm not loading unnecessary libs. What's the simplest way to find out which addons use a particular library?
I'm the guild Auctioneer grunt, so people send me ? [ItemLink] all the time for price info.
Then tell them to use it on their own pc, upgrade pc or pay for your pc upgrade. I know that sounds snappy, but you shouldn't be keeping addons (unless YOU want them) for other people. I have auctioneer advanced too, but I disable it when actually playing, I take my time for the AH, then I enable it, otherwise it's disabled. And yes, usually I have my banker alt with Auc on at all times. You could disable Informant alone, replace it with Mendeleev or just NOT have it. It won't affect Auctioneer, and will help a little bit with loading times, though with that list, you're pretty much set at extreme load times.
