    This is the same as primeval lich...i know its not my PC as it can run top end games at full res with no lag etc. I've only done one Corgul..that was enough!

    Devs...Give EC some love!

    Fighting the Primeval Lich is completely untenable using the EC. It's not a matter of if, it WILL crash the EC - regardless of how powerful your PC is.

    Anything that uses this effect, including the EM's "Guardian Lock" ability will thrash the EC. The effect brings your frame rate down to about 2 or 3 and you lag for at least a minute. Fighting something that uses this effect repeatedly may take down your whole system due to a rather obvious memory leak.

    This effect needs fixed ASAP, and the mobs capable of it need a cool down between uses. I've seen beefed up EM mobs based off the Primeval Lich that cast it about every 4 seconds, necessitating those of us who used the EC to leave, or RP an angry ghost that couldn't move.

    Would be nice to get some kind of response from the dev team on this....and the EC in general
     
  6. Didn't you hear? EA no longer supports the EC client so they can devote more time to PvP improvements for the 5% who still play PvP. The EM's think it's a neat trick seeing half the players crash at every event and try to work this graphical effect at least once into every EM event.

    The Developers have known about the EC crash from this spell since the very first time it was used and haven't done anything about it, so don't expect them to rush out and fix it now.

    Cynical? Yes. I'll remain so until we see some improvements and some real support for the EC client.

    Lets face it chaps...EC is doomed.
     
  9. I hope not. I won't be going back to the Antique Client ever again. If they stop developing the Enhanced Client then there won't be a reason to keep playing. Still, I haven't given up hope for it.

    I'm with you old man of uo!

    To use a client that relies on 3rd party (approved) apps be playable just doesn't cut the mustard with me.

    UO is in a funny state, you're right, it's ridiculous that you need assist and cartographer to play classic client, however the majority of players prefer the CC (can't remember the figures but most players use the CC) probably because they prefer the graphics.

    Working on EC is going to be bad for the future of UO as UOs future is in the pvp, if devs work on the EC then the EC will give clear pvp advantages over the CC (better running, quicker dressing etc) and people will be forced to play with graphics they don't like in order to compete.

    Don't get me wrong, i like EC, but they need to make a classic graphics toggle and fix the slower casting issues, and that will take a long long time.

    I also wont go back ! If they stop that will most likely be it for me to!
     
  13. I think this is where both you and the Developers are wrong. MOST players (as in over 80%) want good PvM, NOT PvP. It's been that way since the very first day that UO went online. PvP was exciting because it was new, but it was never dominant. Now EA puts PvP development first over PvM, and it's one of the reasons that UO is suffering so much.

    Anytime a company puts the wants of the few over the majority, the product is going to suffer... and so it has.

    My PC can handle the fire attack, the EC doesn't crash for me, but I do get massive lag.

    It only seems to be display lag - if I press macro keys while lagging from the corgul special attack, I find that the macros where executed when I can see stuff again.

    I shan't be returning to that client ever...the only reason i returned is because of the new client...i hate the old client and dont think i can handle the old one after all the new things ive fallen in love with :(

    from pinco hope a dev sees this, it would be so nice do do cordule again



    here is some news:
    - I found the lag problem and solved it.
    - I found the memory problem, but is a game problem... still doing it with default UI too. Every time a mobile or particle effect or an item enter in your screen will be loaded in your memory, there it will stays until you don't restart the game
    This is a HUGE bug and should be fixed by devs as soon as possible, because this is the cause of crash when corgul does fire ring!
    Here is some data from memory usage with Default UI:
    Client start: 159,712 Kb
    Logged In: 292,308 Kb
    Open Paperdoll and Backpack: 299,164Kb
    Running From Home using the crystal portal to the Humility Champion (in the area without monsters): 341,108Kb
    Enter the champion spawn area: 456,084Kb
    Crossed the champion spawn area passing through the altar: 517,960Kb
    Passing near the same group of monster will increase by 3,000Kb every times

    I hope this could help

    now is worst because burn memory at every item, particle or mobile you see... and the corgul ring is HUGE particles structure...
