Our sound designer got problems when editing the FMOD project (.fspro) that was saved and connected to our Perforce Server. FMOD got very slow and eventually crashed when trying to copy assets to the asset folder via drag-and-drop.
We added the following stuff to our depo:
If we added asset files by pasting them into the asset folder of the current fmod project, the process was faster. But as soon as you tried to actually use one of the assets for an event, FMOD took a long time for computing again… it seems like FMOD automatically marked the files for add or checked them out (depending on whether the files where “new” to FMOD), even if they had already been added to the depot.
But why should it take so much time to do that? Did we make something wrong with versioning the project?
