How do you deal with big libraries? F3 crashes with mine :(

Recommended Posts

Hi folks


I am using a 2TB internal HDD and all my content is stored there. My games are stored as GOD.

My drive structure is as follows:

-RGH: With the following subfolders:
--SYSTEM: (With utilities folders lile F3, Dashlaunch...)
--XBOX360GAMES: My XB360 games (60)
--XBLA: My XBLA games (600+)

I have a small 60 XB360 game library that F3 goes along well with. No problems when I am on the XB360 area.

I have the full collection of XBLA games until May 2014. It is a big library with more than 600 games. Around 30 seconds after going into the XBLA section in F3 the dashboard crash miserably on me :(

I have disabled automatic scanning on start and have scanned all the content manually. I choose directly the XBLA type before setting the path, I don't use AUTO and use middle resolution for the game covers.

How do you deal with big libraries so F3 does not crash when loading the section?

I have to still check any crash logs. Have still not read where I can find them.

Any advice is very welcome. Thanks.

For that many covers I'd definitely go low res.  Also, it has always seemed to me that f3 has been fickle with cover display and downloads.  Whenever I had a problem I've almost always had to do a full re install and start from scratch if I didn't want constant error messages or blank covers.

I'm not sure with them being god containers. If it was large extracted folders I'd suggest no more than about 200gb in a specific games folder and just have more game paths and games folders. Not sure how to divide the 0000000000000000 folder. Maybe someone has a suggestion on how to accomplish this?
