Hey, whats up?
Since the update, the HUD causes FPS drops on all maps (from 200 fps to 25 fps); i know this because when i'm in "spectator" or when i type "/showhud 0" everything comes back to normal.
This is my machine:
-Nvidia GTX 760 (currently using the 353.86 drivers from 1 year ago, the new ones are kinda buggy)
-Intel i5 2320
-Windows 7 home edition SP1 (i have updates deactivated)
This is the same problem Laggy reported some weeks ago (we both have Nvidia cards).
Do anyone have any idea why is this happening?
Restcoser suggested using /hudminimal 1 in the meanwhile. And it works.
Also, i noticed that during the vote time the FPS drop stops even when you still can see the HUD.

I don't know if it's the HUD per-se. The UI runs cubescript twice per frame to build the layout then render it, it is significantly slower when the UI becomes more complicated. The maps menu is a good example of this now. This will be solved in the future when we migrate to the new UI that Tesseract uses.

This sounds really weird. So, you say it's the in-game hud for the health bar, energy meter etc that causes a major drop in the frame rate?
The only new thing there is the flashing colour while health or impulse is regenerating, right? Or does the SDL2 stuff have any effect on 2d stuff?
Alxa, do you get any error messages in the game console, such as textures or variables that cannot be found? Last time i had a big drop in fps it was due to a missing submodule update.

Laggy reports that inventoryinput is the problem. If the inventoryinput is invisible, the lag goes away. So the temporary solution is to set: /inventoryinput 0

Aha, interesting. Right, I can also see a drop in fps. Now, I wonder, why should anybody want to use inventoryinput 1 or 3, i.e. indicate which keys you press

I guess 1 and 3 are there for the sake of completeness, but even inventoryinput 2 has the lag in spec mode.

You can see all messages in the console by pressing (`~ or /).

Oh yeah, i just thought you needed to activate some kind of debugger or something. But anyway, the game runs fine now. Thanks guys.
