GAF conversion time

Postby Dev Xpinator » December 18th, 2014, 6:38 am

Hi,

when my app finished loading all the gaf assets, it takes a lot a time for the gaf to convert the GAF zip (5 - 30 seconds , depends on the device & environment)
1. is there any why to reduce this time?
2. is there any progress event for the progress of the conversion?

thanks

Hi,

1) The conversion time depends only on the number of gaf assets, their complexity, and the device. You can try the following trick to reduce conversion time: start to convert gaf asset in parallel with the loading (right after the first gaf asset is loaded). The other way is only to reduce the number of gaf assets and their complexity. But I understand that this is not the option.

2) Right now there is no parsing progress event. Theoretically it is possible to add it. But practically it is not so easy to do because whole conversion process consist of number of dissimilar operations. And percentage calculation is an ambiguous task.
