Basically, I think I wasted $40.00. Must of the time, I'm waiting for me to be able to do something after giving a command. That's why Zeek is still standing there with scrap leather on his back.


I play it with all windows closed.

I have an older NVIDA GT (?) 8400 card, Anyway for me to upgrade it without paying for a new one?

I don't want to drop anymore into this computer before it croaks..

Did you try turning down all the graphics options?

Don't be so hasty to judge, Khur. There was a good amount of lag last night which I think was coming from terraforming. Before you showed up, there was no lag at all.

Moreover, you were online for a very short time and all you did was gather some scrap. You haven't even begun to experience the game.

Have some patience while they work out the kinks. I promise it will get better--a lot better.

With Nvidia cards, do some research to see if it's a driver issue. I had something that seemed like lag (long load times, horrible fps, ect) that turned out to be an issue with the way my graphics card (nvidia gt335m) handled the game. Changed to an alternative set of drivers and it's all smooth sailing from there.

I do plan on playing the game but unless I can get my video card to work or lower my graphics, it will be a bit.

I do see the potential and that's why I keep logging on and trying differNt things.

Looks like there was a timewarp today. A pretty bad one too, all of Azh's hole is gone, and we are down to like six members, when we were at 10 members before.

More then a day of timewarp at least.
All my basketry practice is undone.

Thinking of rerolling anyway.

Well the rollback certainly didn't help the lag any. It's worse today than it was yesterday.

Latest Developer Update

Quote:
March 15 2011

We have corrected the data saving issue and are continuing to work on reducing lag. Creatures and combat have been turned back on.

I apologize for all the current problems. We are doing our best to handle the great increase in player population.

Thank you very much for being patient as we continue to patch out improvements.

Actually able to take actions, fish etc.
Not sure what they changed.

You may try the beta drivers if they have any out for your card, there's a few things they were correcting with those that made things work for me.

I messed with my drivers a bit and it wasn't as bad of a lag.

I can't update my drivers to anything new since I have a Sony Vaio laptop.
Sony only allows driver to be updated thru their site and they haven't done an update since 9/09.

Still did the update and it seems to be somewhat better.

Sony doesn't allow you to update your driver? Is this some sort of restriction on your PC? Because you should be able to find drivers not made by Sony that are made for your graphics card to help improve it.
If Sony is placing restrictions on what you can do with your laptop I would consider using a windows CD to reformat your PC to remove the Sony restriction crap.
I think I spoke to you about it but I don't remember so if you haven't yet and you're using Win7 or Vista turn off Aero on your desktop to boost performance.

You did and Aero is turned off also. NVIDIA won't install updates or new drivers in Sony due to the restiction. I'm gonna try it and see. I was on a bit last night and could do more but the lag was still there.

Did we move sites? didn't seem to be anything much in the way of building and scavenging when I was on. When I was there 2 nights ago, people were everywhere.

We're still in the same spot. Though we lost everything we did on Monday and Tues morning due to the rollback. Server lag has also made it very difficult to spend any time in-game.

We need to know the exact type of card in the comp. There aren't drivers for a gt8400 nvidia card on their site. They have a SE set, GS, and a normal one.

Look here to find the driver in particular. To find out what kind of card is in your comp, go to the device manager, right-click on the graphics card, and go to properties. The beta drivers have worked wonders for me. Wink

Lag was virtually non-existent last night. It was pretty sweet!

Didn't find an option for my graphics card in my device manager. The Nvidia card is apperently up to date now.

Again, when I go to change or update drivers, Nvidia's site tells me they can't and that I need to go thru Sony's site. Sony site only has a 2009(?) update.

I will get on later today and see how it works

Mine does the same Khur, I have an Asus laptop. Whenever I try to do an automatic update of some kind it says I'm up to date. Had to do a little digging to figure out what kind of card I had so I could do the updates manually.

If you can't figure out what kind of card it is, give me your laptop model number, series, ect and I'll see if I can't figure it out. Normally that's on a sticker on the bottom of the laptop. Case in point, my comp is an Asus k42jv. Your laptop should have something similar on the bottom.

Don't feel bad. The game keeps crashing on me today. Going to give up for tonight and try to gather more branches tomorrow.
