Anyone getting the old KR crash?

    I crashed twice tonight, and both times after I added something to my hotbar and did a hotkey adjusment. Me thinks this may be back again, I hope not. I really am hoping they can get this client back up again, or at least revert it a few patches.

    I suspect the only reason they "abandoned" KR and started work on EC was purely a public relations exercise. I think they just reworked KR with all its inherent bugs, cranked down the resolution to confuse us, and slapped a NEW! sticker on it. Either that or the game engine is completely borked for this application, no matter how they approach it.

    KR had its fair share of problems, to be certain (many of which did have little workarounds), however never did I feel like the quality of the client had started to move backwards the way I have with the EC lately, not just with the downgraded graphics, but with all of the little bugs that have been popping up either just as bad as in KR or even worse.

    Seriously, I'm not sure if I can really defend the EC in its current state compared to KR, and the apparent lack of response either here or on the "other board" bothers me quite a bit.

    Both are right, but rember KR the stability was a problem i really know it. But it has other qualities, high resolution, faster movement, no mirrors on screen of monsters and players, a good soundsystem and a option to play both 2d art and KR art, in a much higher resoluted way.

    We have a few bugfixes included in the EC but you can count it on one hand, one is the hotbarcounting bug (bankboxcounting in KR), another is the new GGSystem which fixes many bugs with the old faction gumps for example or puzzle boxes (but it removes the better crafting window) and another strong bug which is fixed is the naked bug after the own death.

    The problem is they removed the good things and keep the bad things, old graphics, old enviroment, how wonderfull were the layers on the ground in KR, they broke the animations again (corpsers are too big, and a few more a wrong sized).

    All in all with this tempo of development i would say in 4 - 5 years the client should reach the final status, but maybe never.

    4-5 years puts EC in the same cart with 3d and KR... not exactly a preferred situation.

    IMO calling the EC 'beta' just gives them a free pass to have an incomplete, buggy client without having to work on it directly.

    Nice icons, but i ask you, your racial habilities icons are really nice, colorful, and these icons are little often used (most are only info, not usable), whay don't do so colorfull with the spells and action icons? (or maybe is the gray background the feature i dont like)
    with some criteria, like red for damage, blue for healing, green for bufs, dark-red debuffs, magenta-dark green necro forms, golden chivalry, pink-orange for miscelaneous, or something so :p

    evil omen icon is wonderfull, not only nice, in addition it's like a warning red light, very easy to see and take care ;)

    it's only a suggestion, very nice anyway, great job.

    I have crashed quite a few times on recall...

    It would be nice to hear from the Devs what bugs they are working on..

    silence is not golden in this case

    I actually only use the racial and special icons for my hot bar, I switch books and weapons and set a macro for recalling. All my attack spells and such are on hoykeys and rarely look for them.
