    Lightbulb Let's reduce lag together!

    Ideas for both developers and players to actually reduce the so hated lag:

    Developers:

    Add a new option in advance graphic setup to set the level of special effects generated by AOE spells such as disco ball, sleet storm, fog, etc. so those won't produce graphic lag on low end systems/video cards.

    I suggest the option affects only those kind of spells cause they are the principal cause of graphic lag at the moment.

    I may see three options:

    As main video options/normal (pretty much as they are now, depending on your main setting)
    Mild: Graphic impact reduced, fewer light effects and lesser animations
    Low: No special effects at all, very few spell animations, distinctive graphic to recognize the spell though (the sphere of the disco ball for example)

    About the lag caused by crafting:

    Players:

    1) Do not stay at pawn brokers to avoid resetting their items, like ataraxia or IQ one. That produce a lot of lag
    2) Limit the time using the cannith crafting system, if you see major lag one day, avoid crafting, if you can.
    3) When using an hireling don't spam a command button, that can produce lag, click it several times but avoid mashing hireling commands: he will be even more confused and the AI use can cause lag.

    Just few thoughts, hope you can add yours to the list.

    What some people call lag, with discoballs and other lightning visual effects is just settings.
    Who knows, with the reworked engine it could be better, but somehow I doubt it.

    1) Doubtful
    2) Only makes it harder for yourself, it would be better if turbine made the instances private instead of sharing with quests
    3) your probably right, but it's more of an annoyance like people spam-sharing quests.
    Path finding does need work in plenty of quests.

    Not sure what you mean calling them "settings" but it is admitted by Turbine itself that these spells cause lag. Worse on older video cards and system of course.

    It is called "graphic lag".


    1) Doubtful
    Just try it before doubting, you will be surprised...

    2) Only makes it harder for yourself, it would be better if turbine made the instances private instead of sharing with quests
    Nice suggestion! This goes to the OP if you don't mind

    3) your probably right, but it's more of an annoyance like people spam-sharing quests.

    Sharing quests cause lag?
