I'm not sure if this is a bug, or intended, but the current loading bar for synchronizing isn't really informative. If I launch my client it starts at 99% as if it started with 0 blocks, and is almost done. If it is say 100 blocks behind, it should start at 0%, and increase by 1% for every 1 block downloaded in my opinion.

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

I sent a PM to laanwj to see if he could incorporate both progress bars and a setting in the options screen to switch between the two different styles. I much prefer the relative style 0%-100%.

He said it was a possibility, but not sure if it'll happen.  Someone wanna submit a pull request for it Smiley

We're back at square one.

When the progress bar was starting from 0% everyone was complaining it was starting from 0, now when it's at 99% everyone is complaining it's starting from 99%.
