Slow Installation Advice

Post by steadypaws » Thu Oct 03, 2019 7:56 pm

For those of use who are experiencing horrifically long install times (usually with the thousands of times oggenc2 is called), as I'm sure it's been mentioned before, disable your anti-virus or exclude the TTW install folder where you unzipped the installer into. I started the installer earlier the night before this message and it was still running 14 hours later with marginal progress. It was running, doing what it was supposed to, but very, very slowly. Once I excluded the installer folder from real time scanning, it sped way up. (I didn't have to exclude the source or destination folders, only the TTW installer.)

Is the oggenc2 source public domain? That would be a very good thing to compile into the installer. An external app called a few times is fine, but thousands of calls would no doubt benefit from being part of the installer itself... Just saying...

Also just saying thanks for the much simpler installation process to begin with! :D

Ah, well. It was a thought. Thanks for the reply!

Been playing again now for quite a while with no crashes, etc., other than some initial burps. The first load game for a session can take quite some time but subsequent loads that session are lightning fast. I still think there's still some problems with supermutie DR/DT, though. Absurd amount of ammo to take even one down.

Thanks for all the work! I tried to play FO3 using its engine a bit but it was CTD'ng all over the place. TTW to the rescue!

AP, +P and OC/MC ammo exist for that reason.
