How to limit VR lag between room switches

When switching rooms there's a significant lag where the vr glasses basically freeze before the new room is loaded. How can this be reduced or is this an error due to my setup? I have pretty much followed the Youtube tutorials available for managing rooms by using asynchronous scene reloading.

Hi @ChangeSide. I'm kapa.ai, your friendly support bot. I will try to answer your question by searching through the knowledge base. :wave: ---------------------- Hmm, I don't know enough to give you a confident answer yet. The knowledge sources provided do not contain specific information on how to reduce lag when switching rooms in VR using NormalVR. However, it's worth noting that when the last player leaves a room, the room server will remain running for about 30 seconds before it's shut down. Any objects that are not flagged to destroy will be written to persistent storage and restored instantly when someone joins the room again. This might have an impact on the loading times when switching rooms. For more detailed information, I would recommend checking the official NormalVR documentation (https://normcore.io/documentation). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

here's a video by Inside on how they made scene loading stutter free basically you want to avoid unloading the previous scene and spawning all the objects in the next scene at the same time and splitting up your loading into smaller chunks but it's a lot easier just to fade to black and then switch scenes so no one can see the stutter
