Thanks to stupid argue with Dargunz I got angry enough and decided to write a big guide.


Where is the problem?


So if boss/player/other raid player/enemy cast skill for 1st time, then it has to loaded from disk. It is loaded specificly from TempRes folder. Problem is even SSD isn't normally fast enough to load it instant, especially when system/antivirus is doing something in background. It is removing freezes from rather mid-high end computers or stronger.



What is the solution?


If you have 8GB or more of RAM you can put files from TempRes into your memory by force. There is utility called Ramdisk and it allows you to put those files in RAM. Generally you should not try this guide if you have less then 8GB of RAM.



Who benefits the most?

  • 1st slow hdd users
  • 2nd normal hdd users
  • 3rd SSD old gen users
  • 4th "current" gen SSD users.


Generally if you don't expierience lag from 1st use of skill it is helpful very little but if you do, it removes any lag from it completly.



Why not put entire DragonNest in RamDisk?


Good luck putting 8GB game in ramdisk. Anything that is loaded during playtime (not loading) is loaded from TempRes.



Can I use diffrent software for Ramdisk?


Yes! Actually i think SoftPerfect RAM disk is even better then one i present in video. Problem is you have to select option "emulate hard drive" to do mapping trick I present in video. If you plan using even diffrent tool for that, and you don't see new disk in disk manager then you have to dig into options. Probably there is possibity to map non hard drive disk into game folder as I did but so far I was unsuccesful (only diskpart from CMD is able to do so and this tool may do bad things to your drive if you do something wrong). Symlinks doesn't appear to work.



Where is guide?


HERE





What happens when you restart computer?


Disk will continue to be mapped right way under the same letter. All files from Ramdisk will be removed tho so it means game will rebuild TempRes on 1st usage after restarting.



How about Samsung's Magician RAPID mode?


Described in video (I am samsung SSD user as well), It doesn't work so well.



How Ramdisk works?


It is "driver" level utility that fools system into thinking we created new partition but in reality driver reserved RAM memory space. It means the bigger RAMdisk you create, the more RAM you lose when ramdisk is active. If you unmount Ramdisk, all your Ram goes back. Generally i never seen TempRes folder to be bigger then 400MB, so kinda you can create safely 500MB (8GB of ram becomes ->7.5GB of ram) The bigger disk you create the more RAM you lose.



I recommend as well to add both ramdisk partion to exclusions for antivirus as well new created TempRes folder.



Thanks to:


Freeze, Milem, Venour for beta testing


Dargunz for making me thinking about that.


XD



PS: If some kind of "official" can aprove this guide It would be great.
