Massive load times here. We need a "lower the size of bikes and skins" campaign.

Can't agree more. Just downloaded SM pack: 1 bike = 180-240MB + 105-188MB for the tyres. And that's ZIPPED (.pkz) ...  :o

I think that's what it is. My findings..

Took 4 minutes to join the first time. Entered track and cored. There were 7 - 8 people in the server.

Reloaded game, saw there were now only 3 people in the server. Rejoined and it took 2 minutes.

While riding, a bunch of people rejoined. I returned to the pit to load people's bikes and was convinced I'd cored as it took 2 - 3 minutes before my mouse responded. Once it did, the pit suddenly filled with bike models..

Not sure what to make of that but it definitely seems like models and paints are either a problem because of the way we're making them, or a problem with the way mxb handles them.

Wow, I just noticed something *very* weird: I have Avast free as antivirus and it updated 1-2 days ago.
Since I noticed weird things: my plugin was very slow each time I was interacting with it (show/hide widgets, move stuff around, etc), like a 1 sec freeze of everything in MXB (except sound).

I spent 2 hours trying to find a bug in my code, no joy. Then noticed other weird stuff: all Piboso's sims were way slower to load and to go to track.
But if I removed my plugin, they were as fast as they have usually been. So 3 more hours of bug hunting, no joy.

Then I noticed that Visual Studio was slightly slower in compiling my code, something like 10% slower.

So I started thinking Avast was playing games and I switched it off, but no joy. So 2 more hours of bug hunting, still for zero results.

Only after intense headbanging I noticed the problem in my plugin seemed to arise when it writes its status to the .ini file (i.e. startup and any time you change something).
From there I was pretty sure it was Avast's fault, but hey, I switched it off and that didn't make any difference ...

So I tried the silly approach: remove Avast. Problem gone  :o  >:(  :o  >:(  :o  >:(

I don't know if the latest Avast updates screwed anything of if they just rest some options I had previously tuned. At any rate, that's a bug no-no in my book, so Avast gone.

Just in case you have the same issue.

TLDR of HornetMax post for the lazy ;)

(Avast, Norton etc are memory hogs, shit ton of false positives and false negatives, especially with programs writing in files outside of their own folder). I know it's not fashionable but Windows Defender (yes it's free) and a bit of common sense trumps any 3rd party antivirus those days for home use, in particular the free alternatives.

I had avast for the past 3 or more years, no big issue. Had plenty of others before, no big issue either (until the day I get annoyed by offers to upgrade to pro or similar spam).
Not many false positives, not much resource usage either.

win Defender ? No thx, I'll skip on that one :)  It's ok-ish as it's free, but there are others free that do a better job.

Pay attention if there's any Avast update (the program, not the virus db). I didn't have any issue before that (past 3 years or more) ...

For me it was absolutely clear the problem was coming from Avast. After that, it could be limited to my situation (Win7 x64, specific avast settings etc etc).
