|Summary||0009722: Eliminating redraws from Autofight / Automagic with invisible_targeting option|
On Webtiles, the widely used Autofight / Automagic macros can be immensely slow (sometimes in the order of 5 seconds per attack) depending on the number of enemies and items around, because cursor and beam are redrawn as if the user had manually targeted an enemy. This is unnecessary and often makes using those functions slower than manual targeting.
Thus, I added an invisible_targeting option (default false) which gets toggled before and after Auto* commands are processed. What remains is the attack animation itself, which happens instantaneously.
If adding the option is against conventions, do tell me - another way would be adding an "invisible" flag to the direction_chooser and making that accessible in Lua.

A few concerns:
1. If crawl.process_keys() raises a Lua error() for whatever reason, we might miss turning the option back on. Probably that could be avoided with a pcall()? Lua isn't my strong point.
2. I think there is no reason to make this settable from the rc: the "else BOOL_OPTION(invisible_targeting)" in initfile.cc can be eliminated.
I think it might be better to use an extra argument to crawl.process_keys rather than setting something in options.* from Lua. Then the C++-side crawl_process_keys can inspect that parameter and use an unwind_var around Options.invisible_targeting so that it is always restored regardless of flow control. You wouldn't need the entry in l_options.cc then, either.
|Added an another patch, that tries to do things the way neil suggested. Plus stops sending flush_messages to WebTiles server. Not sure about all of it, so not pushing yet.|
Pushed a version of my patch as 0.17-a0-1937-g38f2e49. Without the flush_messages stuff, that didn't make much a sense at all.
Thanks a lot for the patch.
|Woah, I didn't expect this to be implemented after such a long time and didn't check my mail on that account any more - sorry for not responding to your concerns. Thanks a lot for making the effort to properly fit this into your framework!|
