Recently just had the motivation to play the game again, however I'm experiencing a bit of annoyance whilst loading up the client launcher. There's this loading thing on the top left of the client which states (Pre-Loading Shaders...%).. The problem is that it takes quite awhile for it to load sometimes nearly up to two minutes.. thought I don't mind waiting, but would prefer if it was sped up.
Is there any chance I can speed that up or remove it?
You can generally ignore that; you don't need to wait for it, I think. I seem to recall reading that had to do with loading graphical assets from the cache into memory, but not sure whether that was GPU memory or system memory. Either way, I suspect there's not much you can do to make it any faster, other than a physical upgrade. Assuming you're not fully consuming one or the other.
Assuming that you're experiencing some kind of performance issue, more important in terms of performance impact is to ensure your game cache is fully built.
You can see the total data in the cache if you run the "displayfps" developer console command - the maximum can vary, but mine is about 8GB as an indicative amount.

thanks for the reply, but even if I don't wait for it and log in straight away - my game just slows down making me lag and unable to move around freely for atleast another three minutes. It's bearable yes, however I do want to get moving straight away haha
I have the same issue.. when the client starts the "Pre-Loading shaders ...x%" starts.. and it takes aprox 5 minutes, and if I some how manage to log in, it lags as crazy.. I deleted the caches from the folders, but that only made it good one time.. The problem is EVERY time I close and open the rs client, lags like hell for around 5 minutes..
