Some lag of setting page

Asked by Romonov on 2017-12-30

When I entered the settings page, the game has a serious lag.
Then I found that it happens only on some clients with ARES patch, so I would like to know how to solve it.

Sorry for the delay.

This has nothing to do with Ares, however. Modern operating systems (Windows 8/10) don't handle DirectDraw well, and the issue you're describing is a side-effect of such. This issue (along with some other rendering-related performance ones) are why CnCNet5-based clients - used by the major mods nowadays - are offering different renderer settings with allowing each user to choose their own ones based on their own experiments.

Do note that the renderers themselves don't need the launcher - the launcher just copies the selected one (and it's components, think ts-ddraw requires wined3d.dll) from it's Resources folder into the game directory as ddraw.dll for the game duration - it's just that such clients already have all the available options from the internet, pre-assembled.

Can you help with this problem?
