    If I use the Enhanced Client, no matter how powerful my PC and graphics card, I get graphics card memory leaks with field spells and many particle effects on the screen (like the nova spells from the Crimson Dragon/Slasher of Veils/Stygian Dragon etc.). The client freezes for about 20-60 seconds, and if it happens repeatedly, it crashes.

    So, I can't use the Enhanced Client.

    If I use the Legacy Client, I experience massive crash situations since the last patch, and at several places in the Abyss, the client reproducably crashes to the desktop and cannot be started again.

    So, I can't use the Legacy Client.

    What client am I supposed to use now?

    Re: Client Catch-22

    Now all these things happening (see other threads both here and in tech forum) are just tiring & innacceptable.

    First, KR was a flop ; now 2D don't work any more, at all or sometimes for a few (many?...) ppl ; "enhanced client", well...from what I read...
    Not to mention the many ppl having problems with codes...

    It's getting tiring.
    Why can't they do something WELL???

    I'm GLAD I didn't buy the upgrade to SA as I can't log in anyway AT ALL & me and the ppl in my case don't EVEN know if we'll be able to log in again, when, or never!!!!!!!!!!!

    Re: Client Catch-22

    I recently bought a brand new graphics card so I could use the new client and was SO pleased when it worked, However I did the Slasher of Veils spawn a few times last night and whenever the screen flashed white the game would pause for a few seconds.

    Then eventually half the art would go black and id have to close the client and reopen it!

    This is why the client and content were separated release-wise. They kept beta status on the client because they haven't been able to solve their graphics issues. I think they were counting on the 2d client to remain stable long enough to workout the issues of the new client.

    But... a swarm of flies hit that soup bowl!

    You can turn some of your settings down, or have no particles at all.
    Back when they had that other beta client out I tried it and it was liek step step lag lag for twenty seconds move it was just crap but this new one is MUCH better no lag at all less lag then the classic client actually I still won't use it unless i'm just walking around though can't really pvp with it macro system & gumps are just terrible.
