As far as I know I'm using the lastest build. I downloaded Pre Release 14 and then did the Pre 28 update. I'm not really sure why it takes so long for Xlobby to load up. Depending upon the skin that I use (Colby's taking the longest), it will take anywhere from 1 1/2 minutes up to 3 minutes to load up the menu. It seems to always take the longest to load the database and then the initial start up. I almost always get a "preparing to start..." for at least 20-30 seconds regardless of the skin that I use.
Along that subject, is there any way to strip out what Xlobby loads up so that I don't have to wait for it to load something that I don't want? Primarily, I just want to have weather, music, and movies to load and only those. Everything else is a waste of resources for me, as I am using MainLobby for everything else. If I could strip the database section of everything I don't want, I think that my load up time would dramatically improve, thus pushing me towards implementing it.
FYI, I have almost 3000 MP3s imported and about 200 DVDs via DVD Profiler imported. Would this have any bearing on how fast or slow Xlobby loads?
