Anti-Debug Removal = 33% Performance Boost [Closed]
If by performance boost we are discussing SteamAPI (which is silly).

I cannot make any qualitative statements on the impact removing the anti-debug has on the performance of the rest of the game, just so we are clear.

    Removing the anti-debug was a necessary first step to actually measuring the game's performance, the only data I have from prior to disabling this BS is SteamAPI throughput and that is not a common performance metric we can just throw around meaningfully, lol.

But if we invent a new category, SteamAPI Calls per/second (sacs), then anti-debug was only getting you 75% of the sacs performance you could have been getting. That is a lot of sacs you were missing out on because the game was convinced you are trying to learn its inner-most secrets.


    Please use my other thread, I'm done with this.

Removing anti-debug has a measurable impact on SteamAPI at startup but only because SteamAPI is the only thing the game's doing at startup for an insane period of CPU wasting nonsense. It hasn't been shown to have any effect during gameplay, but does enable various forms of modding and that were not possible before -- not what most are looking for.

You might want to post evidence before accusing a known community helper of sharing a virus...

Are you kidding!? "reported, virus" how is that not implying anything? lol. Also, if anything its a threat alert (cos of the heuristics, therefore false posiitive - you might want to check before posting just bs cos you dont have any idea..) and not JUST a virus cos win defdender is an anti virus program. Man dude...
