      >fan fixes loading times by 70%

      What the fuck is this shit? How incredibly incompetent is Rockstar that this was never caught before release??? Even a basic napkin math calculation would have told them that to load X GB worth of assets into ram shouldn’t take this long.

      There is absolutely no excuse for this bug to exist. Are diversity hires really this bad? No wonder AAA video games are such dog shit these days.

              Not really true, H1B changs are fucking retards too. All the smart ones work for Baidu or whatever other companies they have over there. If you’re a competent programmer in China, you can make a lot of money and have European living standards. India still does not have this yet, so you can get relatively better coders than you would changs for lower pay.

        That’s 2 months of salary compared to what they pay their software team you absolute fucking retard. Let me guess, you think video game programmers make more money? No. Programmers who want to make money work in banking software or medical software. They do important stuff, where serious bugs lead to dozens of deaths. There is a reason video game devs get paid pennies.

      if you’ve ever been a developer you’d know that out of 1000 different features and behaviors you need to support, you need to pick the ones which are most critical to the bottom line, and sometimes things which matter from a user experience perspective but don’t impact functionality, fundamentally, need to be left alone. it may not have been obvious that the bottleneck was in parsing JSON, and proper investigation into the cause would not have been a resourceful use of developer time. yes it’s absurd but there are plausible explanations for this beside incompetence

      If I remember right, it was a small code error that was hard to spot. That’s why it took so long and took someone outside of the company to find and fix. Rockstar wouldn’t spend time finding code fixes when they could just make a new car to sell for gorillions.

      Game came out in 2013 and the "fix" essentially just makes it so the game can make use of newer hardware that a standard around the time of release. On top of that majority of R* is working on other projects and their main team for V is has been busy with the "remaster" version. Not defending R*, but I’m sure they already had this fix in the remaster and was going to use it as part of the selling point "wow look how fast the load times are now!" and this guy spoiled it for them.

      "Loading" data isn’t literally just copying it from storage into memory, there’s processing/decompression involved and the actual data loading often isn’t sequential either, but yes, the loading time is clearly fucked and they should’ve profiled their crap to figure out what exactly is taking such an ungodly amount of time. Who knows, maybe they knew exactly what was going on but didn’t fix it because consoles would’ve been I/O bottlenecked anyway, thus optimization of the loading procedure wouldn’t have lowered loading time.

      Humanity is fucked in every way anon. It only makes sense that it starts with video games.

      Did Rockstar use GTAO’s stingy mission payouts to determine how much to pay them?

      So why didn’t you fix it? Why didn’t you get the money?

        99/100 times the load times would’ve been caused by more unfixable forms of incompetence and you’d have wasted time on finding out

        the reason the dude in the op did this was out of a personal pet peeve probably

        I can’t imagine the turbo autism required to decompile GTA5 and then sift through hundreds of thousands of lines of machine generated code (as in it has only symbolic names like uint64__long)
        Plus since it’s C++ it’s all virtual function calls so I imagine that in itself is a headache to read when it’s parsed out into C

          it’s called a profiler retard, it tells you which lines are using the most resources

          but yes, still turbo autism

      This kind of thing would happen on a weekly basis, and for free, if developers open sourced their code. They got lucky enough that someone was able to reverse-engineer a solution here. Usually proprietary code just stays broken.
