Epic 100% CPU usage -.-
Permalink  
 


Ok, I was working on CTF-Venom today, which is my primary map project from now.
As we speak I did the following just a hour ago:

 

1. I just imported 130 custom textures. Nothing wrong after that. Saved the package in my documents folder. Nothing is wrong.

2. I had a made a simple square room from around 1200z x 2000y x 2000x i think. I used the Geometry tool to cut each wall in 8 pieces for some texture variation. I did the same for the floor,

and here it went wrong. After that, my CPU went nuts. I couldnt even reach the last 2 geometry splits >.< As im writing this my RAM is doing okay and is still steady around 3GB. Im trying to build my map but my CPU goes 100% all the time and I think my editor froze from that point.

And idea's? Could this be because of the geometry splits?
It happens every time when I build the map. There are no hard lightmapps, NO static meshes, just a few textures on the wall 

For the record, I added the room brush first as a complete brush, then edited the blue brush with the Geometry tool.

I have an AMD 3.0 GhZ processor, 4 GB RAM DDR3, Run Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bits and a pretty crappy Nvidia Geforce 8400GT graphics card

Think I fixed the problem.

Seems like there was a process called "Windows Media Player Network Sharing service"
which sucks up about 52% of my CPU -.- wtf. Probably after the latest WMP update from yesterday.
Immediatly uninstalled WMP after that.

omw to test it now.

 Nope, it DIDNT work. I repeat. It did not work..
 My CPU still goes nuts when I enter Geometry mode on that specific brush ... strange...

Ok, I might have figured it out.

Everything runs fast, EXCEPT for the Geometry mode. When I select an another brush everything is all good again.
I might take a long time for my editor to process all the splits in a brush, that should make sense lol. I never did this before actually.

Does anyone know a solution for this?
Is there a setting for this I can lower? :)

The WMI service is known to make such problems. You have to set it from 'automatic' to 'manual' (not disable) in the windows services menu.
control panel -> administative tools -> services


cheers

 Thanks, yeah. I never use WMP, so I downgraded it to an earlier version, killing this service and disable any updates from it.

Still, My Geometry mode doesnt like +30 splits in one brush or something. It goes nuts. Perhaps its just the editor

Maybe try splitting that main chunk into smaller chunks of BSP so you're not making as many cuts to a single BSP piece.
