abnormal disk activity

description

I have noticed that with the latest version of the TerraMap. That there is more then usual disk activity when moving the map around. I switched back to a version before this update and confirmed , with perfmon that the older version didnt access the disk as much or at all when moving the map around. heres a screen cap of the perfmon window Imgur

Thanks for the feedback! TerraMap should only ever directly read the world and player files. The other files listed are from the .NET Framework, and are not directly accessed by TerraMap. After loading the world and player files, TerraMap should not be (directly) accessing the disk for anything.

How much RAM do you have? You might take a look at the Memory tab in Resource Monitor. TerraMap uses a lot of RAM, especially on large world files, and Windows may be paging memory to disk. The latest version uses even more RAM than before, to load the player map file.

I'll investigate more, just to be sure.

Thanks!

Is this still an issue? Is anyone else noticing this same problem? Ever figure out if it might be related to low free RAM?
