Description
This mod does what it says, it caches some data that Zeus usually has to reload everytime you open the interface.

In short it fixes the freeze when opening the Zeus interface with many mods loaded.

Limitations:
This might seem magic to you, and it kinda is but it also has some downsides:
  • Only works with BattlEye disabled (This mod simply cannot possibly ever work with BattlEye unless you want to get game-banned permanently. So please stop asking me about BE compatibility.)
  • Disables Zeus pricing system (all units cost 0)
  • Makes all units/vehicles/items from all loaded mods available, activatedAddons in mission.sqm or addCuratorAddons are all irrelevant, you cannot hide things.

But because you cannot hide things, I instead also optimized the Zeus search. See video above for a comparison.

Multiplayer notes:
This mod is clientside only. Only Zeus users need to load this.

FAQ:
Q1. Can you make a BE compatible version?
A1. No its not possible to make a BE compatible version.

Q2. Can you get the mod whitelisted by BattlEye?
A2. I can. But it will just cause BE to gameban you for hacking. Whitelisting just allows the dll/mod to be loaded, if the mod does "bad" stuff, it'll still ban you for it.

Q3. Can you make a 32bit version?
A3. No, that would be a waste of time as barely anyone is on 32bit anymore, just use 64bit.

Q4. Does this work with ZEN/Ares/Achilles?
A4. Yes.

Meaning you cannot reupload it to the workshop, cannot share it without giving credit (not removing my name from the pbo is enough), and cannot sell it. In short, keep your filthy hands off of my stuff.

I cannot publish the content of these files. And it would just be more effort for me to keep the correct files for each version. And I'm too lazy for that.

Could I suggest a more transparent approach?
Since this mod loads a DLL, some people may be uncomfortable with a password protected file in their systems.

Thanks!

> Also, I know it could be nothing but why there is a debuginfo.7z that is password protected?

Its only for me such that I don't loose the files matching the version. That has info that I need to analyze crashdumps.

@dedmen
Fixed for me, thanks.

@hawkeye, make sure you have the last version.

@Hawkeye sure steam updated you to the update from 2 days ago? That should've fixed exactly that crash
