Game lags as hell

Postby dhratlach » Tue Aug 22, 2017 2:49 pm

Just to say. I'm back from a long break (blame life for it!) and the game lags... terribly.

Is there a solution for this? ...or shall I forfeit the game?

No one has been reporting terrible lag. Can you give more information? Perhaps a problem with your connection or software?

Which client are you using?

Have you made any changes to your computer since you played last (firewall, etc)?

No significiant changes since last time. Mostly same programs, same applications and same firewall. My software is pretty monolit.

Don't know about any software, nor connection problems. Just installed java for the game and a client. The standard one that comes form the site.

Any ideas?

Okey cocaine!

Fixed it by doing some most arcane and bloody magic. That was a bit tricky, but it works right now and is playable, so victory!

Thanks a lot to all the helpfull souls! :D

Maybe check your task manager and see if your CPU is very loaded? It is hard to say at this point if it's related to actual latency between you (client) and the server, or if it's truly a computer performance problem.

I use the Latikai and don't have any trouble, haven't used the basic client in years: viewtopic.php?f=11&t=7681

Also, some players have released modifications that reduce the texture quality of terrain, for example: viewtopic.php?f=11&t=10171

Edit: If you could share what you did to fix it, you might be able to help others in the future

Actually, I've done quite a bit, but only after creating a new toon the game "reset" and "unlagged". Odd, but true. Sometimes, the most simple of solutions seem to be the key. :mrgreen:

By the way, just realised my account was compromised and somebody stole quite a bit of my most valueable stuff. Damn. :x

How would your account be compromised, or how would you know? If you mean the email address then fine, but otherwise it was likely a case of the new loot rules affecting you. It's now possible for people to steal out of your leanto, and if you lack a leanto or hearth location entirely you lose your inventory.

I suspect it was a shared account, just going by the difference in English proficiency and use of "we" you can find on his trade thread:
