Slow NPCChat execution on Looking glass

Recommended Posts

I've recently noticed a very slow execution of all methods on NPCChat class, when running a script on looking glass.
I understand looking glass uses a lot more resources, but so much difference between execution times seems odd. This script requires so much npc talking that using looking glass makes it 33% less efficient. I've already fixed the problem by using my own NPCChat methods. Im just looking to know the reason why it is so much slower and if theres something to be done about it.
These are the time i've gathered:

With looking glass
[16:36:34] Executed NPCChat.getName() in 154 ms
[16:36:34] Executed NPCChat.getMessage() in 102 ms
[16:36:34] Executed NPCChat.getOptions() in 116 ms
[16:36:34] Executed NPCChat.getSelectOptionInterface() in 118 ms
[16:36:34] Executed NPCChat.getClickContinueInterface() in 103 ms
[16:36:34] Executed NPCChat.getSelectOptionInterfaces() in 125 ms
Without looking glass
[16:44:48] Executed NPCChat.getName() in 1 ms
[16:44:48] Executed NPCChat.getMessage() in 1 ms
[16:44:48] Executed NPCChat.getOptions() in 4 ms
[16:44:48] Executed NPCChat.getSelectOptionInterface() in 1 ms
[16:44:48] Executed NPCChat.getClickContinueInterface() in 1 ms
[16:44:48] Executed NPCChat.getSelectOptionInterfaces() in 1 ms

The script i've used to get this times:

public class Debug extends Script {

    public void run() {

    private void debugNPCChatMethods() {
        long t1, t2;

        t1 = System.currentTimeMillis();
        t2 = System.currentTimeMillis();
        System.out.println("Executed NPCChat.getName() in " + (t2-t1) + " ms");

        t1 = System.currentTimeMillis();
        t2 = System.currentTimeMillis();
        System.out.println("Executed NPCChat.getMessage() in " + (t2-t1) + " ms");

        t1 = System.currentTimeMillis();
        t2 = System.currentTimeMillis();
        System.out.println("Executed NPCChat.getOptions() in " + (t2-t1) + " ms");

        t1 = System.currentTimeMillis();
        t2 = System.currentTimeMillis();
        System.out.println("Executed NPCChat.getSelectOptionInterface() in " + (t2-t1) + " ms");

        t1 = System.currentTimeMillis();
        t2 = System.currentTimeMillis();
        System.out.println("Executed NPCChat.getClickContinueInterface() in " + (t2-t1) + " ms");

        t1 = System.currentTimeMillis();
        t2 = System.currentTimeMillis();
        System.out.println("Executed NPCChat.getSelectOptionInterfaces() in " + (t2-t1) + " ms");
