Client Performance Patch - 9/25

12 posts

Flag Post

We just pushed out a client patch to address performance lag and choppiness. The improvements should be most noticeable in-combat, out of combat near lots of other players, and when fighting creatures with giant lightning attacks. Please let us know if you notice a difference as it will help guide our optimization steps moving forward. Thanks!

Looks like it got worse for me :(
Sometimes enemies “revived” after 3-5 seconds, especially tough ones.

Definitely noticed a difference, mainly when out of combat.

Now if only there was quality control so I could set it to low to get more fps. I’m on a pretty slow computer.

That’s internet lag which we also try to minimize, but will vary day to day. We were hoping to address client lag with this patch.

We’re also working on that as well. If you use your browser zoom settings, I believe that can help.

Sorry to hear it. A few questions to see if I can help. Also, feel free to email me at support@bluemammothgames.com and I can help you out.

What browser are you using and do you have the latest version of Flash?
What happens if you use the zoom out feature to make your screen smaller?
Did this start happening recently, or have you never been able to load a dungeon?
Are you running near the memory capacity of your machine?

Thanks!

I can’t seem to zone into Mystery of Yornak. I’m not sure what the issue is, exactly, but I was trying to enter the dungeon today when my browser crashed. Now, whenever I try to zone in, the game freezes up.

What happens if you try a different browser? Also, maybe closing a few other programs or tabs can help with memory. If neither of those do the trick, shoot me an email at support@bluemammothgames.com and I can try to help debug further.

Seems like I keep getting stuck on loading (shows 60% and R=numbers). I am using latest firefox and flash on mac. Clearing cache didn’t help.

I’m also getting stuck on loading. I always get to 94%, wait a little bit, then the game crashes. I have used both chrome and internet explorer, and it happens on both. additionally, it also happens if I try to create a new character, too.

I just tried getting on from another computor. I can get on from it, but I can’t use the original computor to get on. Since I can’t use this computor all the time, the problem still needs to be fixed, but I hope this helps you figure out what it is.

If either of you are still having this problem, please send me an email at support@bluemammothgames.com so that we can run some diagnostics. Thanks!
