I would like to have a solution or workaround for a bug that's in vdmx for quiet some time.

Although not apparent in small action lists, the use of timers in actionlist stalls my system considerably.
Vdmx lets me run several sequences on numerous fixtures at once without the systemload exceeding 50%
Them when a single timer-actionlist is started;
  • the systemload goes up to 99%.
  • the timer will run at 30% of systemtime.(3 vmdx seconds per 10 system seconds)
  • the running sequences will start to slow and stutter
Running several timers at once make matters even worse.

I feel the issue is connected to the overall size of the combined actionlists , even though they have nothing to do with a timer.

Thanks in advance !
