Improved Fast Loader

Improved Fast Loader


What is it?
This plugin makes the game skip some start up steps and consequently increases the loading speed.

Why Another Fast Loader?
You probably know that there are other fast loaders out there so, why another fast loader?

  • They aren't friendly
  • They aren't configurable
  • They might crash on some systems

What can I configure?

  • Detection of the last new/load/save you did
  • Start directly on the loading screen or even in-game
  • Absence of a loading bar
  • Absence of the loading screen
  • Screen changing timer
  • And more...

Tip: To avoid going directly to the game you can keep CTRL pressed while the game is opening, so you can for example configure Mip Mapping that is a option present only when the game hasn't been loaded yet.

By default it comes configurable for casual use, if you are going to open the game 10 times a minute disable the loading screen from imfast.ini

Easily the best fast loader out there. I'd recommend everyone try it, especially if you're using Ryosuke's fast loader, which is slower than this one.. :p

I use this in conjunction with a modified main.scm that skips the introduction cutscene when starting a new game.

 

I can get from my dekstop, to having CJ in the alley in LS in less than 4 seconds. Excellent :^:

Cool to see another Fast Loader, the Ryosuke's one wasn't a bad one. This works with any of SA versions, or only with 1.0?

Updated - v1.1

  • Removed the fade delay after getting into a save game
  • Compatible with VCSPC

Thanks to Silent for the headsup.

Not yet, for now only 1.0 US

Nice mod LINK,great for testing mods.

Even thought it goes very well for modders to test their mods, it was primary build for casual use, as you can see it doesn't come configured (imfast.ini) for the best speed but for the best experience :)

UltraThing's reflection on cars don't work anymore if Improved Fast Loader is installed. ):

Hum, other people reported the same, looks like a real problem.

TBH I don't want to look into what's causing it... Could you disable each hook on the ini to see which causes the problem?

Unfortunately there's a problem, just like the old fastloader by Ryosuke's. Game crashes when you try to start a new game (after you load a previous save)

Are you sure you removed Ryosuke's fast loader?

 

EDIT¹: Actually the crash could be reproduced by someone else, I'll look into it when i have time.

EDIT²: imfast was disabled and the crash was still there, so, not imfast fault!?

EDIT³: It was tested on a clean game and no crash

It could crash because of some cleo scripts which uses hex buffers and memory patches in it(those scripts should be fixed), with a clean game any fastloader didn't crash for me.

Added a version check before any patching is done, download again if anyone wants to run a non-10US-exe

There is no such thing as 3.0 exe anymore :p

3.0 still exists. 1.01 and newsteam r1 don't.

Cool patch Silent but how can I set the refresh rate? It bugs me that it's stuck at 60hz, I've got a 144hz panel and everything feels sluggish, not to mention the horrible downtime between alt-tabbing :/

So cool.

Btw, there's a little issue, seems caused by the mod; loading theme doesn't always work when the mod is enabled, sometimes it gets bugged/disabled while loading.

I have the Loading Tune Disable set to False, meaning that the tune should play when the game is loading, however it doesn't. Suggestions?

; Start the game at stage... 0, 1, 2 or 3
START_GAME_AT=3

What is this setting in imfast.ini?

 

And to confirm, should the mod always load the latest save?
