#764 Mumble 1.2.3 overlay causes fps drop


Hello. I notic that mumble in 1.2.3 version lag my game (OpenArena) becouse of the layer with nick name connected to channel. In 1.2.2 everything was OK. Since new version i cant play. FPS are not dropping but game run like 10fps. Fixing the problem is turn off the layer, then game work normal. Can you fix it? Make that layer just like 1.2.3?

    me and my friends have the same problem (or a problem that sounds like yours) and started to research the problem. We find out: when a new icon shows up in the overlay that didn't show up in the overly since you connected (so this start happening again after you had a dc or something like this) you get a big lag or a big fps-drop. This means: when some one with a "new" avatar joins the channel (or starts speaking when your overlay do not show all people in the channel) or someone mutes himself you get a little freeze. If the icons stopped to beeing shown (happens if you do not let the overlay show everybody in the channel) and will be shown again you will get only low fps for a very short time but not such a big lag. So me and my friends think the problem is somewhere with the caching of icons or the way they get rendered in the overlay (somehow like "render this image, but wait until you have loaded this icon, wich can take some time because it is not cached very good". And not like "show what happens in the channel and if you miss an icon, render without it, until you have it in your cach"... But we do not know how mumble is developed, so this is JUST what it looks like it behaviors).
    We also hope this bug will be fixed and our researches will lead to the solution of this problem.
