Extremely slow workspace

Upvotes: 2
Issue description

Dear MCreator developers,

my workspace (Raolcraft) suddently became extremely slow. It has never been very fast, but it recently became very slow. I thought that updating to 1.9.1 could have fixed this issue, but it is the same.

Should I disable the automatic recompilation (because it gets slow during recompilation)?

Anyway, I sent you all my workspaces, if you need them. Could you please remove them from this ticket as soon as it becomes public?

MCreator in 1.9.1 no longer uses Java for recipes so there should be faster builds than before.

If the recompilation makes it slow, try disabling it, but it could you make miss important mistakes in your mod.

I would suggest checking if there is something else on your computer taking up resources.

1.9.1 is definitely faster with your workspaces on my computer.

If this does not help, write back here and we will see what else can be done.

MCreator itself is not slow, but it freezes for a few seconds after an element is edited. And it seems that disabling recompilation doesn't help much, MCreator is very fast until you close one of its tabs, making it freeze for a few seconds.

I've installed some stuff recently, but there still is a lot of free space on the computer. Other programs and games work fine

I've tried opening the Task Manager and it says that every process consumes low resources until I close an element tab, then openjdk starts taking a lot of resources

And everything comes back to normal after a few seconds

(I'm sorry if I posted too many consecutive comments XD)

I have tried closing tabs but it did not lag for me. Could you screen record how this looks like?

I will do my best to fix this, but for now, I can't really replicate this.

If possible, give me your computer specs too (CPU, RAM, disk type).

Another question, does this happen with all mod elements or some specific ones (or specific mod element types)?

Sorry for so many questions, but I can't replicate this myself so I need as much info as possible :)

I can't screen record right now, but here are the computer specs:

Intel (R) Core (TM) i5-2500, 16GB RAM, 64bit...

I think that's enough XD

It seems it happens with everything, but I will check later

Maybe I could allocate more RAM to MCreator, but I don't know if could it cause any issues

RAM settings in Preferences only affect Gradle builds, not whole MCreator.

Does this only happen when saving changes of an existing mod element? Or are there other cases too?

And how long does this lag last approximately in seconds?

It seems it happens when loading the workspace and when closing any tab (I tried closing the create texture tab for example)

It seems it lasts about 18 seconds

It is not much, but I want to add ore dictionary to hundreds of blocks and items and it could take a lot of time because the lag

This is also happening to me, although it is taking way longer then 18 seconds to open my workspace.

Could both of you do the following:

  1. Launch MCreator and get it into situation to lag that badly
  2. Close it
  3. Go to <user folder>/.mcreator/logs and open the latest log file and copy+paste its content here

Alternatively run it using mcreator.bat and paste the terminal contents after it lags.

Thank you for the info!

Ok, I will as soon as I get in front of my computer (probably this evening)

It lags as soon as I click my workspace, and it's still open (so. many. hours.), so I'll get it done in a flash.

There's the log for you.

BunnyLord_123, this is unrelated, your issue is that your workspace got corrupter, most likely due to forcefully closing MCreator or shutting down a computer.

Workspaces can get corrupted if they are being written to while the computer crashes or MCreator is unexpectedly closed.

To restore your workspace, go to <workspace folder>/.mcreator/workspaceBackups/. In this folder, backups of the workspace file are stored. Pick a backup from a date before the crash and replace your <workspace folder>/<modid>.mcreator file with one of the backups. Make sure to rename the backup to the same name as the original workspace file.

So that's why. Didn't know that. Thanks for the help, even if it has nothing to do with this problem :)

Wait, do I need to go to the .zip? Because I don't have a .zip version of the mod.

Wait - I don't know why, but today it doesn't lag

I will send you the long anyway, but it's odd how bugs appear and then fix by themselves after a bit...

Nevermind, there still is the lag. But it doesn't always appear. I edited 3 food elements without lag then edited a block and the lag appeared again...
