Severe lag when changing windows to Icechat
« on: February 28, 2010, 08:48:21 PM »
I experience severe lag whenever I join an IRC channel with lots of people (say, over 2000). I'm not even trying to do anything except go back to the Window. So suppose I opened my browser without minimizing Icechat. I then choose to go back to IceChat through my taskbar. It takes a few second for IceChat to even respond, and when it finally responds, I can't do anything in the window for another few seconds such as click buttons or scroll the chat.

What causes this problem? Is there any way to fix the problem? If this helps, I have not experienced this problem with the other IRC clients I've tried.

It is simply because there are 2000 people in the channel. IceChat 7 is a bit slow in handling large channels like that.

Ah, I forgot to mention. There is no fix for IceChat 7 for this. But I do believe the problem is gone with our latest Alpha Version of IceChat 2009.
