Preload XFILES

Hi people!
Is posible to preload xfiles?
i want to change betwen 5 or 6 big xfiles without freezing.

thanks a lot

ya, that should work just like with textures.

you’ll make yourself a Preloader patch that contains 5-6 XFile nodes, connected to Constant effects grouped to one layer and connected to renderer.

like this the xfiles are preloaded and when you access the exactly same filename via an XFile node from another patch you should not experience an additional freeze.

Hey Joreg,
I´ll try it, good idea ;)

Thanks a lot

ah, what i forgot to mention. the preloading Constant nodes can be disabled. that way they still load the xfile, but don’t draw anything…

Ok i imagine.
Thanks a lot Joreg
