No progress message when scan the save game directory

The screen of save game manager will freeze if run the "refresh save game folder" function, the left hand-side game list is not auto scroll down, and the screen have no any message.

I just waiting about 30 minutes and it can scan all save game data of 400-500 games. So it is not the run time error, it just a the "refresh screen problem", Could it be fix for this problem?

The issue is that it's populating--or trying to populate--the UI with the results.
Without going into too much technical detail, the v3.x branch isn't multi-threaded and so all tasks are performed one at a time (on the UI thread).

My only suggestion as of now is to go to Program Settings -> Detection Configuration -> Ignored Entries and configure GameSave Manager to not process the games you're not actively playing.
You can also do this via the commandline /ignore via the following syntax:

Code: Select all

gs_mngr_3.exe "/ignore EntryTitleHere"
It's something I will be addressing in the v4.x branch.
