$SetIcon before $HubINFO to pingers
« on: January 12, 2014, 17:02:19 »

I would like to request a simple change in FlexHub. Currently it first sends $HubINFO and then $SetIcon (if set) to pingers. Could you please reverse these commands?

The point of asking about this is that my hublist supports $SetIcon, and pinger has to spend additional time on the hub waiting for $SetIcon after $HubINFO. The pinger doesn't know if it will arrive at all or not. It's okey for me to wait on 10 hubs, but what if I have to wait on all 1000 hubs? Whole ping cycle will take alot more time. Once my pinger got full userlist and $HubINFO, there is nothing else to do in the hub, so I would like to disconnect.

HeXHub and Verlihub already send $SetIcon before $HubINFO. :-P

Thank you!

Btw... Maybe russian hublist (dchublist.ru) has the same problem when it determines as old software FlexHub - he does not get all the information on time, maybe...
- I'm sorry for my terrible english...

Sure, I wasn't aware of any preferred order in sending the icon versus hubinfo. Will change it.
