It's located in Appdata for some weird reason.

It refuses to use the game folder.

How am I supposed to fix the ingame frametime lag/stutter when the game is loading 34234234 files from the TTFS folder ingame?

Using symlink, or whatever is called on Windows. Well.. if you use SSD, no need for ram disk though ;p

Paths.ini is what you want to take a look at. If you have an ssd though then its not the ttfs causing the stutter, its something else.

I dont have an ssd

Where can I find paths.ini?

btw i a lot of people experience issues with this, maybe add it to a todo list?

Both rencorner and MPF have hundreds of megabytes of shit they download and TTFS doesnt place them in a mix file...it places them all as loose files

so you get the same issue as when always.dep is missing...the game will try to load the assets when it needs them in-game and will do file reads (as it isn't stored in memory yet). Renegade has the always.dep file which state what files to load in general and for every map a map_name.dep file to state what files to load for that map.

Is it possible to disable writing to _asset_report.txt?

[paths]
RegBase=AllNoobs
RegClient=ReneCoop
RegFDS=ReneCoopFDS
FileBase=AllNoobs
FileClient=ReneCoop
FileFDS=ReneCoopFDS
UseRenFolder=true


Put in a "paths.ini" and place inside data folder.

example i use for Renegade Coop.

If you run the cleanup console command by pressing f8 and typing cleanup it makes a big difference even on SSD computers. You can also find this as a button in the extended options menu. It cleans up all the duplicate packages etc in the ttfs. We should probably make a prompt in the next update to run this command for people with a huge packages.dat and ttfs file stores. If you want to clear your ttfs entirely instead and start fresh you can run the clearttfs console command.

If you play on rencorner and MPF you download a huge amount of files.

I was working on my own always.dat and something yesterday caused my FPS to triple...my game is really smooth now O_o

When I enable UseRenFolder it appears keys.cfg is ignored regardless of where it's located. Am I doing something wrong?

EDIT: Where the hell is any documentation for these ini files?

I remember seeing it documented on danpauls page. But It couldn't find paths.ini documented when I looked. I know it is somewhere.

Can someone perhaps document all TT related files etc? Some of these 'features' are apparently well hidden.
