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.

hmm, most new monitors can only show 60fps so really boosting it up Past this ain't going to help anyway. It will ONLY show 60.

The point of boosting frame rate is not to exceed 60 but to make sure it doesnt fall BELOW 60. The minimum is what counts.

Hrm, April Fool's Day release of an "addon"? Sounds fishy....

HOWEVER!

Being a glutton that I am, and I like to see the creative things people come up with in their addons for 4/1, installed to see what UI screwup, error message or infinite "close" popups. Best one so far I had seen was from Lunarsphere, so I'm always curious to see what's gonna top the list for me.

How wrong I was.

Tested this repeatedly on the same toon, doing the same thing in the same place while switching SSS on and off. My framerates on my semi-good gcard increased by 20(Dalaran) to 40(flying around with full views, etc). It's the real deal folks.

Or... it's a clever hacks to the fps text to change randomly?

Ok so i installed this and sure enough my fps reading jumped via the ingame read out.

Now the question is why does my evga precision still say my fps is 40?

Also dont know why iam not getting the error when hitting escape key

Fake fps?

My ingame fps in dalaran are boostet from ~50 up to ~89 at ultra settings.

But other fps programs like Fraps tell me still the old fps with this addon.

Actually youre right, I just checked with Fraps and the frame rates do not match up.
