    it seems that they can work this fast. good for them if they can.

    Wow.. these guys really are hammering out bug fixes every week. Nice to see they are so on top of things.

  • ThomasN7ThomasN7 87.18.7.148Member CommonPosts: 6,690

    It is nice to see them fix a ton of stuff but with so many bugs it makes me wonder if they should have released when they did. I might check this game out again soon if they keep on improving it.

    If you're at all interested in Fallen Earth, I wouldn't let the bug list scare you.  I've been playing for three weeks now, and have really had no issues with bugs.  I've only had a few glitches where the crafting ui didn't recognize my crafting tools -- so you put your crafting tool in your vault, log to character screen, then log back in and the issue is fixed.

     

    I actually surprised the fix list is this long since I've encountered so few bugs myself.

    It'd 95% the sort of minor bugs that never get fixed in most games. A few minor rebalances. A pinch of new content. Fixing one serious bug with the faction system.

     

    Server down for patch until 2:00 PM Eastern.

    This is kinda a huge disadvantage of one global server. Their maintainance goes usually through europe prime time. It's gonna be 8pm again when they're done.

    REALITY CHECK

  • LeetheLeethe Member UncommonPosts: 893

    That looks like a solid patch to me. Good on them for staying on the ball. The 1st 6 months of an MMO are a bitch.

    There is NO miracle patch.

    95% of what you see in beta won't change by launch.

    Hope is not a stategy.

    Unfortunately you cannot please everyone.. I am glad they are using just 1 server, its a niche game and to divide a player base between 2 huge servers at this moment in time would be crazy.

    As much as I enjoy playing the game, I rather see players complaining about we need another server other than complaining about, we need to merge servers, because their server is a ghost town.

    Also with 1 server, you build a stronger community in my opinion. 

    I would say if the game becomes a huge success within the year, then I would then consider another server. Right now this game caters to a niche crowd of players and would hold off.

    ..........and no fix for the lagtopia that is embry, no fix for the stop & go lag in general.

    I'll be proactive here and briefly answer what I know will be said;

    "Embry isn't laggy for me.  I dont have lag anywhere" says you.  "Thats great", I say, "but embry is laggy for me."

    "Then it must be your pc thats the problem".  I reply, "Yes, it might be my pc, how observant of you."

    Those would be my civil replies.

    No need for anyone to say those predictable comments.

    I am sure the lag will smoothen out somewhat, when people get past S1.

    I kinda lag alittle at every place where there are lots and lots of people around me, for now that place is Embry, but when I am playing on less peak hours I obviously experiance little to no lag, it's one server, I am even a EU player, as far I know the servers ar in the US, also I lag abit more when I try to ride my horse thru town, running/walking on foot does not make it lag as much. Though I feel it more like little hick-ups. But then again I like my shadows to be shown, I tried playing without shadows on and had hardly any lag, but the lag I encounter with shadow on is like I said just a few hickups, for me not gamebreaking, but could understand if someone totaly frooze it would be gamebreaking. I also know my system isn't considered high end by today's standards.

    There are allot of factors to consider what might makes you lag. Sure it might be your computer, who knows?, I mean people complain about things without explaining themselfs, meaning if someone would say they lag and post their comp.specs, connection type we might have a discussion about it being your PC, also the location from where you playing, at what time you are playing could self explain why you might have lag. Also understanding you are playing on 1 server with people from all over the world explains allot atleast if you are somewhat of a experianced gamer.

    Sometimes though you really need players to find out some bugs rather than a handful of beta testers. I guess either way there would have been bugs though.

     

    Kudos for bug fixing though.

    One if the fix of multiple memory leaks. Most of those will come in the form of engine tweaks, which is the main culprit for the graphical lag people experience.

    The other is...

    Polished assets for improved look and performance:

      o  Remodeled and textured some residential and public buildings.

      o  Remodeled and textured several indoor and outdoor objects.

    To me this says more fixes to help alleviate the graphical lag.

    I guess we will see how much these help later today. They have said the work on tweaking and optimizing the engine will be ongoing. It has already improved quite a bit throughout beta.

    agree, I've encountered very few bugs, but a couple I have, which I /bugged, are on here.

     

    Is that a sneaky little buff to Thermal? 10 second on molotov? I thought the recharge was longer before but I am not 100% sure.

    The texture changes are one of the things I am most happy about. I have noticed that its the vicinity of certain types of buildings that caused a memory leak on my PC and caused the game to crash over time.

    For example I had not problems what so ever in Flagstaff, but Embry and Traders flat would over time cause my game to shut down. And those towns share a lot of building types.

  • Pookie666Pookie666 Member Posts: 33

     Laughed when I saw your post Spirit. Soooo, agree with what you said. Lag is a major problem and yet folks say, "Oh no i'm fine!"....whatever

    I bought the game last week. IMO the game has the "potential" to really, really be a hit, but OMG the laaaaggggggggg. It's ok when you are outside of the towns but go into Embry xroads and you may as well be looking at  a power point presentation slide show, it's that bad.  I really hope they can fix it since all the missions and stuff are IN towns. 

     

    *wine* I hope this doesn't end like TR ...that would be 2 in a row for me! Guess I'll have to be forever killing orcs and trolls.

    "Then it must be your pc thats the problem".  I reply, "Yes, it might be my pc, how observant of you."
    Those would be my civil replies.
    No need for anyone to say those predictable comments.

     

    Seems to me someone doesn't know the difference between lag and low framerates!

    You sir, have low framerates.

    Network lag has never been an issue for me ingame and I have played sine closed beta began.

    I bought the game last week. IMO the game has the "potential" to really, really be a hit, but OMG the laaaaggggggggg. It's ok when you are outside of the towns but go into Embry xroads and you may as well be looking at  a power point presentation slide show, it's that bad.  I really hope they can fix it since all the missions and stuff are IN towns. 
     
    *wine* I hope this doesn't end like TR ...that would be 2 in a row for me! Guess I'll have to be forever killing orcs and trolls.

    And another individual who thinks network lag and frameloss are the same thing, they are not, just FYI.

    Get a comp that isn't terribad and you should get stable framerates, its as simple as that.

    I run on a three year old, single core Sempron @ 2ghz, with 2gb ram on Vista 64 Ultimate, Radeon 3850 Video and I get stable framerates everywhere except certain towns. As expected with my extremely low end system.

    I think that is where the real discrepancy lies, people willing to admit they are running low end systems and that there expectations for performance are markedly lower as a result, seem to have alot less complaints about the game and are able to just enjoy it for what it is.

    Players that have some idiotic form of E-Pride they choose to hang onto for dear life, don't want to admit that there systems are sub par, and as a result come and complain about issues without even knowing what the real issue is or whether it is fault of the game or there own sub par comp.

    Silly.

    Though low frame-rate may be the technical culprit, in embry its likely this posters graphics card is not causing the issue. My reasoning being: I too suffered from "Lag" (to use the incorrect terminology of the poster here) every time i stepped into Embry however, whenever i was in another town, whether it be odenville, pass chris, or even oilville, i was receiving upwards of 40fps at minimum.  Mind you when traveling the desert i normally run around 68-70fps. Everytime i would come even close to embry my frame rate would litterally drop to somewhere between 1-5fps. Now i dont have the most "up-to-date" machine but im well within the "recommended" specs running a 2.6ghz dual core, with 4gb Ram, a 1TB Raid 0 config, and a SLI Nvidia 8800GT setup running Win 7 64bit.

    No matter what i tried (yes I played with the graphics cards outside the game and in) nothing fixed the issue. I tried running without SLI, even tried pulling 1 video card (just to be sure) but the problem persisted. then after this patch, suddenly i can now enter embry and although im not getting 40fps, i am managing about 20-25fps which is playable. That said, i have to state both the above posters are wrong. i dont believe the problem is Low-Framerate in his case, its my belief that embry had some serious memory leaks and the Devs finally started to iron some of them out.   Id suggest - if you havent, that you try embry since this latest patch and see if it helped you at all.

    Ahh, but I didn't say his graphics card was causing any issues to begin with. It is more than likely a combination of components within his comp bottlenecking his performance in high population areas.

    That is because the textures were not optimized previously, and now they are.
    It has nothing to do with a memory leak.


     

     No, I am not wrong, but feel free to believe what you wish.

    Abyss,  take a look at my thread regarding trial keys being handed out by the escapist and how to get your hands on one.  Rumor has it you can input another trial key onto your current trial account and it will "continue your trial".  No guarrantees on the validity of that comment but worth a shot.

    That's because Funcom are not using a game engine that doesn't require any programming skills to makes these changes to the world and things in it, go read up on the company behind the FE engine, it details the building tools in detail and boasts how it doesn't require the developers to know programming just how to use the tools to build and change the world.

    If it is texture optimization then why am I not seeing a sudden boost in FPS for all towns?  seems oilville etc still run almost identical to what they did prior to the patch and only Embry shows major improvements?  To me Texture optimization would have made all the towns run much smoother considering most of the textures found around Embry are the same textures used on the buildings in other towns? Im all ears on hearing whats causing this and wasnt trying to make this an E-Peen waving contest, i was simply stating that I didnt believe the graphics card was the issue, nor network lag, but Memory leaks, or perhaps by your statement "texture optimization", whichever it is (and id like to know so i can correctly state later if needed) im extremely thankfully for it.

    :)
