Hey Benji, I started up my garden again with this (essential and amazing) mod, and I'm wondering: does the "Chao Attention" mod make just evolution faster, or does it also make them age faster as well? I noticed in the chao editor that when I have that code checked, the timescale of the garden is set to 150 when I enter it. I love the faster evolution (seriously it takes forever vanilla) but I'm not so sure I want my chao *dying* quicker too...

Also I'm using the dynamic lifetime code without about ten chao in the garden. So maybe that's changing some stuff. I wish you went into a bit more detail on what exactly each code does...

Also this is unrelated but trees seem to be broken? I had my chao plant four trees in the chao garden and after several hours not one of them has produced a single fruit that chao can eat--which is a slight problem when I have 11 of them in a garden and they throw a fit if they aren't fed every two minutes >.>

Do you have the fruit don't disappear code on, cause there's limited amount of slots for food to be around, so if you're playing on hero garden, but neutral and dark garden are just loaded with food taking up slots, less may appear in hero.

No, I don't. I noticed that if I set the chao garden tree slots to the regular garden trees (so I have seven instead of the standard three) then everything actually works fine. When I made that post, I made my chao plant one each of the special shape fruit seeds, and those didn't work at all. Dunno why, but I guess everyone's getting regular garden fruit!

I thank you for creating the Chao World Mod - however, since the upgrade to Version 8, I'm afraid that the game appears to be really laggy now. I tried out Version 7 of Chao World Extended, and everything seems to be running as normal. But every time I try to run any version of Version 8 (whether it be 8.0 or the latest one, 8.2), the game seems to be slower than normal. The way I can tell is that whenever a Chao plays an instrument (a bell, for example), the pace that the instrument is played is slowed down significantly. For the bell, the Chao doesn't swing the bell as quickly as it usually does. The time it takes to pick up and put down a Chao is increased as well.

I'm afraid I don't have any videos to prove any of this, but hopefully you can figure out what's going on with the game. I installed the mod just like I usually do before, both with Version 7 and Version 8, and I don't believe it's the way I'm installing it that's the issue. The computer itself is fine - the rest of the game plays like normal, and I recently upgraded my memory to give 8GB of RAM. The video graphics card should be fine as well. Like I said, the Chao World usually ran fine beforehand, but now with the newer version it seems to have slowed down a bit. I don't know what else to say other than that.
Hello,

I was wondering if anyone else noticed a slowdown of performance when using Chao World Extended Version 8. I checked my computer recently and it seems to be performing fine, plus it has about 8GB of Ram, so I don't think the computer is at fault here. That, and the game runs fine without CWE as I mentioned earlier. Any and all help from anyone reading this would be appreciated. Thanks :)

You really shouldn't use your amount of RAM as benchmark for your PC capabilities. The more code you activate, the more your CPU will need to do calculation. Also, you might need a better GPU if you activate some of the HD codes. We can't really help you if we don't know the basic info of your PC, and there could be other things going on in the background that we are not aware.

My PC is the best example of this: I have 24 GB RAM running at 2133 MHz (technically could go to 2600 MHz), but if I run a Virtual Machine of Windows 10, it will slow down noticeably, since I have a 6 core i5 CPU, so no hyper-threading.

Shows how much I know about computers, lol.

For what it's worth, my laptop has an Intel Celeron CPU N3060 @ 1.60GHz (running a bit slower than your 2.133GHz processor). Unfortunately there's no easy way to upgrade the CPU since its soldered to the motherboard. I don't know if there's any way to enable hyper-threading either.

If it helps I have an Acer Aspire R3 131T. I'm going through some of the settings right now, I'll let you know what happens with it.

Oh, it's a laptop. Yeah, I had an Aspire just before building my desktop, and it already was running the Extended Chao Garden 7.5 just barely. I'm not really surprised that 8.2 would slow down the game.
You can't "activate" hyper-threading, it's only available on i7 Intel CPUs. Since it's a laptop, there's not much anyone can do, sadly.

hey there, was looking around for some info on the mod I can't find anywhere else. I've noticed that my chao have been evolving quicker with each generation, without editing the time. i've narrowed it down to potential items that I believe trigger it. do either of the mushrooms or the minty candy do this? i would like to be able to train my chao a bit more before the reach their first evolution.

thanks.

Mushrooms increasing magnitude for the chao now with CWE, with the red one having an even higher increase. For baby Chao, once the magnitude is full they evolve. So that's probably why you see them evolve quicker if you're feeding them mushrooms.
