[Tech Help] EC Slowdown

Discussion in 'UO Enhanced Client Discussion' started by Vercingitorix, May 19, 2010.

  1. Lately I've been noticing more of a slowdown while I'm using the EC. Usually when there is a lot of activity on-screen, 10 or more monster/people. Using a netbook 1gb of RAM with a Mobile Intel(R) 945 Express graphics chip, believe it has 64MB of memory. What can I turn down, if anything to keep it running smoothly? Have most checkboxes, unchecked in the options, using lowest resolution available, 800 x 600, no shadows, idle, think I have it set to 20 for framerates.

    Thanks for any help given.

    You could try shrinking the inner game window. In other words, maximize the UO EC window, but shrink that inner game window that shows your house and land so that you have a larger black area.
    I'm hoping the next update will finally optimize EC. Keep fingers crossed.
     
  3. Thanks, will give that a shot when I get home, it's already resized but could still be playable smaller.
