#101666 - 01/12/11 01:47 PM [Band-in-a-Box for Windows] Ver 2011 - Longer Start-up Time

There used to be threads, a while back, about the length of start-up time for BiaB.
There were suggestions about PC performance and the relative power of various PC configurations and all that.
But for many of us, from "click" to "ready" would often take up to 30 seconds or so.
This seemed to have been fixed in 2010 (or 2010.5, can't remember).
It was fantastic.
Start-up was almost instantaneous.
Now, with 2011, we seem to be back a little bit where we were before.
It's not as bad as it once was but not as great as it had become.
Hopefully this can be fixed again.

That wasn't immediaely after a Cold Boot, was it?

I've noticed that the first time I start BB2011 after a Reboot, it takes an interminably long amount of time to load - and the first time you see the familiar BB mainscreen, don't click anything, for it will flash away and reppear.

But after that, in the same Windows session with no reboot, BB loads a lot faster.

Exactly Mac. I forgot to mention that.

The behavior is different than it used to be.
The wait time used to be at the chord window.
Now the delay is when the logo flash screen is up.

Again, hopefully fixed with a future patch build.

Mine's quite slow too. Perhaps BIAB is running around try to get the "Real" musicians out of the poolroom or bar.
