so, if i had the power (and i do) to preload all the large ammount of stuff in-game, but before heroes are picked, would it be ok?

this would entail a black screen and a message saying something like "Preloading Resources, Please Wait" for like 20-30 seconds just over a minute.
after which the game would return to normal, heroes available in 15 seconds, timer starts at 0 etc.

edit:
some info...

there are currently 20 skills to be loaded from the imperium side. this takes ~35 seconds to complete.
there are 22 more skills to be loaded from the ork side, i am esitmating the same ammount, so just over a minute

edit2:
the issue with preloading in-game, before picks are done, is that i would have to preload the resources for *all* the heroes, which is more than is required in any given game.
itll increase the time required for preloading in general (compared to now), but it avoids the messy hero-picking lag

edit3:
ok, so ive got everything coded in and preloading, and it takes 53 seconds of black screen.
it also comes with a welcome, including map name and creator, and the % of preloading that has been completed

edit4:
ok, so preloading now starts after 15 seconds, so the host can enter game modes
this avoides awkward situations when game modes are typed after heroes are available (ar, specifically)

You should at least play elevator music during the wait.

I'd rather have it with the pre-load so some scrub who outloads you can't just jack a hero and then its a fight against lag!

new question!

should the preloading start after 15 seconds to give the host time to pick modes?
or is after preloading ok for mode-picking?

<_< I say after 15 seconds, since we're going to be doing fucking nid mode. So the preloading will either do a normal game load or a nid mode game load.
