HxC manager software - very slow traversing folders

Postby spacedmonkeys » Mon Sep 21, 2015 9:37 am

Just got my HxC and filled up an 8GB card with menu disks and games.
Filled the card up with folders as follows
Games
-0-9
-a
-b
-c
etc
Compilations
-Automation
-SuperGau
Demos

Traversing the folders... it takes at least 10 seconds or more to list the contents of various folders, it even takes a few seconds to navigate from the root folder to the compilations folder. Is this how it is for everyone or have I messed something up? Any way to speed up the software? Or could it be down to the 8GB SD card?
From what I can tell I am using the latest firmware for the HxC (slim) and the latest Atari ST Manager software.

How much files have you into each folder ?

Should I make a limit on number of files?
There are >100 in some folders..
I have made a "games2" folder with about 40 titles in, and that seems to load faster, I guess there are too many to handle?

It does however take a long time to load the Games folder.... which itself only has other folders inside...

For me it is what worked:
- the config file is physically the first file on the card
- left cca 200MB empty space after the config file
- copied all the images after this empty 200MB

How did you make the empty space?

Copy a file there with that size and delete if after all images are copied.

Old version works fine no delays when entering folders and no waiting for list of games to load

Great new menu. Many thanks :) By the way in the screenshot there are ST-files. Is this shot for the USB-version? My SD-version only loads HFE or should it support ST too?
