DECLASSIFIED 0x02

Welcome to the second part in the declassified series, where i tell you about things ive been using for over 6 years.

Today we are going to talk about the imvu cache, and how crap it is.



The cache is a folder located in %appdata%/IMVU/HttpCache and %appdata%/IMVU/PixMapCache, on mac i dont exactly know - someone else can tell you (who uses imvu on a mac? scrublord)


IMVU's 3d product management system is complete shit. Everything you see in the client is actually downloaded to your computer. If you keep logged in for 2-3 days at a time in a high traffic room you can be wasting about 1-2 gigabytes of space! JUST FROM IMVU PRODUCTS!

Now how do we get around this? We clean the cache in the client which is clumbsy, slow, and makes the whole freaking thing freeze for over 15 minutes - while the imvu client actually uses parts of my code (the staff love me), they didnt exactly use all of my code. So to make things incredibly simple i use this:
Code
@echo off
TITLE CACHE SCRUBBER
del /F /S /Q /A C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\IMVU\HttpCache\*.*
exit



I have this saved as cacheclean.bat. You must use a .bat extension or .cmd if you want. This is what they call a "batch file". It will scrub your cache. I have then used windows scheduled tasks to have this run every single hour on the hour as well as running every time my computer boots. That part i am not teaching you, Microsoft can. You can actually ommit the entire thing and just use the "del" one line if you want

For mac...well, the same general syntax applies, more or less its just slightly different:

Code
sudo rm -rf /path/to/imvu/cache/*.* 


Please bare in mind i do not know where the cache is on a mac, but the *.* on the tail end of the command will be required.

You can either have this run automatically like me or run it when you like. This concludes this "tutorial"

~Moved to the batch scripting section~

I went all out with my batch cache cleaner. Probably more than necessary. viewtopic.php?f=134&t=9340

Edit: I wonder if I should modify my script to add the switches. I only ever tested the script on my machine and haven't had any reports of it not working so I wonder if it's necessary.
