Arise, old thread!
I know this is not helpful but all I can say is that when I went to use the offline Syrinscape again, it completely failed me. I wish there were logs I could send or it wasn’t while gaming, so I could get some video of it.
My system, even as old as it is, is still a good one. I have 64G RAM, an nvidia GeForce GTX 980 video card, and 6 3.3 GHz cores.
The past few game days, I start up Syrinscape in the morning, I don’t know how long it takes to be ready as I go do other things. Eventually, I use it for some background music throughout the day. So, it’s up and running and is fine. The guys arrive and I go to use Syrinscape and it’s not responding. I do manage to search among sound sets (can’t wait for the new search you are making to be done) and that is okay but selecting them doesn’t do anything. I try single shot sounds. Nothing happens. The interface is that slightly darker, not ready mode. I gave up.
So, I thought I would try it again right now.
It took fifty five seconds to start up, load the default Abandoned Lunatic Asylum soundset, and play it. it takes thirty seconds when I switch between sound sets to be able to play them. That is unacceptable.
After switching between five sets and waiting thirty seconds, now it switches in about three to five seconds. But at any point after me using it and having something on for a while, it might switch back to taking thirty seconds before it is ready to play again.
Okay, while typing this, I switched between a few sound sets and it was fine. Then I scrolled down and selected a new soundset. A minute later, I still couldn’t play anything. I can switch back and forth between soundsets but I can’t change anything. It’s still playing what it was before. (Which I don’t know what that is because there is no Now Playing or any way to go to the playing set.)
Now, three minutes later of waiting, and syrinscape has gone to Not Responding. I’m pretty sure that’s what happened on game night and so I didn’t go back to it. Okay, thirty seconds of that and it’s responding but I still can’t play anything. I can once again pick another soundset but I can not play any of the new sound sets I pick.
Oh, it came back after forty seconds of waiting, after switching back and forth between sound sets. But now any time I switch to a new sound set? It again takes more than a minute for me to be able to play that soundset.
If you create a version that makes logs, I will gladly run it and send you the logs. My guess, from what I’m seeing, is that it loads the soundsets being displayed, maybe up and down a screen’s worth, but when I scroll past those it has loaded, it fails.
As I have said, I want to find a reason to go back to my super syrin subscription but with performance issues like what I am seeing, I can’t justify it.
