SSS  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 0.1
by: Shirik, Seerah, Shadowed

April Fools!
Hope every one had a good time.

WoWInterface's first official addon!

SSS is designed to improve the efficiency of all addons by replacing several core functions of Lua by more efficient versions which are optimized specifically for WoW development. Straight from the website you know and love, authored by our very own Seerah, Shadowed, Shirik.

This addon provides the following enhancements to boost framerate, minimize CPU consumption, and manage memory more efficiently:
  • We compressed SendAddonMessage to help with bandwidth.
  • We replaced string.match with a much more efficient approximation. Because it's an approximation, it's not entirely accurate, but it turns out that most addons are over-specific in what they look for and our version works very well and is much faster.
  • We also take over garbage collection entirely. Rather than consistently collecting garbage, we garbage collect only when necessary for memory or when framerate is excessively high, allowing minimization of CPU expenditure for this task.
  • We modified several internal functions to request less CPU time and memory so that it can instead be deferred to the graphics engine.
Please note that we are still having some taint issues with this addon, but didn't want this to hold up the release. We are actively trying to resolve this issue. The taint issues are minor, so it shouldn't impact your daily routine.

Thanks guys, this AddOn really works great! My fps went from around 60 to almost 120. Blizzard really should implement this.

at first i had my doubts, seeing as 01-04 is not only the release date, but a nice day to pull pranks :P

but it actually works, i guess this is one of those addons that'll get implemented by blizz in one of the next bigger patches.

Good job guys and girls from WOWI

Just ignore it, that's the minor taint issue we commented on in the description:

Hmmm... To install or to ignore is the question... *looks at line 50*

EDIT: Actually a nice addon. If you change line 59 to " ratek = 4;" then you gain even more FPS.

Found those 2 in my BaudErrorFrame after opening the esc-menu.

Code:
SSS forbidden from using SpellStopCasting() (Only usable by Blizzard)
Count: 3

Call Stack:
[C]: in function `SpellStopCasting'
Interface\FrameXML\UIParent.lua:2893: in function `ToggleGameMenu'
[string "TOGGLEGAMEMENU"]:1: in function <[string "TOGGLEGAMEMENU"]:1>
Code:
SSS forbidden from using SpellStopTargeting() (Only usable by Blizzard)
Count: 3

Call Stack:
[C]: in function `SpellStopTargeting'
Interface\FrameXML\UIParent.lua:2894: in function `ToggleGameMenu'
[string "TOGGLEGAMEMENU"]:1: in function <[string "TOGGLEGAMEMENU"]:1>
Guess those are the taints you were speaking of?

If if you set your system date to 4.1.2010 your framerate goes up even more...oh wait.

I was raiding with 3-8fps in 25's, I went to ICC and had about 40 on marrowgar with all the flames In game I've had about +60fps and now I'm playing with 100fps. Omg, why didn't blizz implement this on their own?

Holy crap! Awesome addon. Tried it for a few minutes with combat and the like. I am already suggesting to all the guildies. Blizzard is going to steal this code. We will see it in the next patch, I am sure.

It didn't improve my fps, just stabilized it which is good as well. No more spikes from 20 to 5 fps, mostly a steady 16-24 fps in 10 mans now (with heavy aoe!)

Thanks for the awesome addon!
