terrypin Posted February 4, 2009 Report Share Posted February 4, 2009 In the ME3 forum in post #13 of the thread http://pgmacros.invisionzone.com/index.php?showtopic=3575 I raised a puzzle about ME Pro being much slower than ME3 in some cases. For those (e.g. Cory) who don't read that forum, here's a brief summary. The following short macro code (a suggested faster method of emptying the clipboard) runs 20 times slower in ME Pro than in ME 3 on my PC. Repeat Start (Repeat 100 times) Variable Set String %X% to "" Variable Modify String: Save %X% to the clipboard End Repeat ME Pro took 25.4 secs <REPEAT START Start="1" Step="1" Count="100" Save="FALSE" Variable="%N%"/> <VARIABLE SET STRING Option="\x00" Destination="%X%"/> <VARIABLE MODIFY STRING Option="\x10" Destination="%X%"/> <END REPEAT/> ME 3 took 1.4 secs <REP3:01:000001:000001:00100:0:01:><TVAR2:01:01:><TMVAR2:16:01:00:000:000:><ENDREP> As I can't figure out why, it worries me that this might be a general issue. Or at least for macros using similar variable setting and modification commands. But, if so, I would have expected to see many reports from users witnessing slow-downs. BTW, have the codeboxes always been this wasteful of space? -- Terry, East Grinstead, UK Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
