View Full Version : Info to help diagnose the "only one digit of damage" bug

I think all users of the Mac client would be aware that when damage is inflicted, only the most significant digit shows. The two "workarounds" are to look at the combat log (effectively makes chat impossible), or to switch to n+n+...+n display (which makes it very difficult to tell what damage types monsters are absorbing/immune/resistant/vulnerable to). I also like looking at the damage type icons.

However, this bug only appears to affect damage done (negative numbers), and not healing (positive numbers) - even when the healing is from a different damage type to "positive energy".

Thus, the purpose of this post is twofold: to once again bump the issue (for me, this Mac client bug is third behind only the dreaded walls/floors stop rendering bug, and the random crashes bug suite); and to hope that the +/- difference observation helps the developers diagnose this problem.

We MAC users "see no rescue on the horizon".

Or when Turbine gets another mac programmmer, which probably wont happen.I began noticing the wall issue and the damage is ridiculous. I have yet to see a 2 digit number. I did notice that if I make the draw distance to medium my wall issue went away but that sucks not seeing things far away..
