There is no "slow loading" just a lot of data smile.

I. e., with all dat-sources enabled, it takes about 15 seconds from cached data in case of latest MAME, and less than 4 seconds in case of MESS (Linux x64, and the hardware is meanwhile a few years old).

And you can't compare "MAMEUIxxyy" with QMC2 because it has the data "already compiled in" and is no front-end.

tnx Rene for fast answer, but i edit my post with logs from qmc-mame and mess.

I test qmc2-mame on my wife notebook with disable antivirus:
she machine is i3/ 8 GB dd3 and GT 525

my desktop is Phenom II X4 with 4 GB DDR3, for test i too disable antivirus ( used Kaspersky) - same results , slow loading .
Btw test too under virtual machine with winxp sp3 +last updates - tragedy , full load for 2min. smile

About 15 seconds, as I said... I see not many ways to make that faster, but I'll still try optimizing whatever I can. The fact remains though that I can't "fix" OS or system restrictions (however, on Win 7 x64 the numbers are similar for me).

@oddi: what takes the longest time for you according to your log is the "ROM state filter". Disable it!

Yeah, that difference makes me wonder why you're not using Win 7 x64, or better, Linux smile...

Oh, and BTW, for those who are only interested in "playing the games", there's also QMC2 Arcade which loads/analyzes a lot less data and starts faster because of this smile.

And yes, Linux is one of the nicest OSs for routers :), but it's much more than "just" that.
