i will have to play around with it a bit longer though.
but sadly, i still lag hard in Boston center :( i was kind of expecting id be able to move around in boston a bit more easily. i click and stop for a few seconds and see myself a few steps away from where i was.
(i know i really need to upgrade my pc ... its taking way too longer than i had planned.)


Sometimes I wonder if you're sitting on some kind of mid 90s PC from the screenshots I see and your lag descriptions :p
I never managed to figure out something clever for my signature on Paradoxplaza, and I doubt I'll do it here either.

i use plain "paint" w/ jpeg thus quality gets worse i guess. i enlarge font size so i can read with ease.
my mid 90s PC and ancient Macs are all decorated in a "museum" room for cats to have fun on. i guess this one should be put in there pretty soon too, but still struggling.

back on topic, after playing on Enders for a while, im starting to see not much difference for some reason. either last patch by Ender made it smoother too, or i just cannot feel the standing benefit of this client (cant feel the trade-off part either). i havent had any crashing issues nor too long loading screen for quite some time ... well, unless i go to boston.
still, the task manager's commit charge mumbo jumbo do show bigger numbers when using Enders, while not on low-memory client. i just cannot feel big differences while navigating through so far. maybe i need more complex objects around to see the difference? ill have to compare default client with low-memory one later.
please let me know if there is something i should particularly pay attention to to see the difference.

I tried this on my ten-year-old toughbook because my desktop is in transit to school. It works well enough on WinXP32 when not in Boston and I have nothing else running, especially music or a web browser (which is a horrible coincidence for being new to the game). But when I tried it on my Mint partition, Java doesn't even run it. How am I supposed to go about running JNLP files? I've tried calling Java through a terminal and executing the file from a file browser and the terminal.

You said you got this client to run on a 256-MB machine. How did you manage in Boston (also with fire)? I end up lagging for a couple minutes every few steps I take and eventually crash with an error report. It's nice to see it work on this thing when I'm in the countryside, though. Great improvement over the official client. #EDIT: But I just discovered that I have a difficult time with fire. It'll load my character, the environment, and the pile of wood, but the fire just crashes it.#

There's been a couple other particle issues with Radeon 9xxx cards, particularly the fire. If you're running slow, odds are it's the video processor slowing you down. When I try to run it on a nVidia Geforce 5200, I'm lucky to get 10 fps with no options on.

You should call javaws rather than java. ;)

Well, no; I said I got it to run with a 256 MB heap. That's a different thing. :)

But yes, I noticed that Boston seems a bit problematic for it, and I'm not sure just why. I did notice that stepping outside central Boston and then going back again actually helped, though. Not sure why.

Maybe because this is a three year old thread and this client probably isn't even up to date? ;3 It definitively seems like an useful alternative to have though.
