[13:41:37] <pupnik> hi wjp. is there anything besides pathfinding that you might suspect causes 1-3 second delays in exult while walking around?
[13:41:51] <pupnik> is drawing the background scenery sometimes expensive? garbage collection perhaps?
[13:42:58] <wjp> how often do they show up, in BG or in SI and in which area of the map?
[13:43:20] <pupnik> BG, trinsic/paws
[13:43:30] <pupnik> i could use some savegames from different parts of the game for testing
[13:43:43] <wjp> hm, no complex scripts there I think, so I would indeed guess pathfinding
[13:44:11] <wjp> if you have live console output, you can try putting debugging statements at the start and end of the pathfinding to see if that's indeed it
[13:44:32] <wjp> or if you have a debugger, break into the debugger in the middle of such a pause
[13:44:33] <pupnik> good call, i can pipe console output to a window on pc with ssh
[13:44:47] <pupnik> haven't gotten into debugging/profiling yet for arm
[13:45:09] <pupnik> i could also set up a structure and count sdl ticks before entering various routines
[13:45:16] <pupnik> do my own handspun profiling
