Some problems I've encountered with EC

Discussion in 'UHall' started by Kratos Aurion, Oct 7, 2009.

  1. Here are some problems with the EC I've identified while playing it this morning.

    (If a thread like this has already been started, sorry for starting a new topic)

    1. I guess by assumption, it doesn't auto-adjust the games resolution to be compatible with your monitor/video card. I'm using Windows 7 and as you can see I lose part of my GUI which falls below the task bar.


    2. While the game speed appears to be moving at the same pace as the 2d client, it's movement is very choppy. In otherwords, it's not nearly as smooth as moving in 2d (which you may notice from 2d a lot of people that are playing the EC take multiple footsteps before moving a few tiles) -- perhaps the movement isn't entirely in sync?.

    3. Along with #2, my character doesn't seem to respond to direction changes as quickly as my character does in 2d -- goes back to the sync thing.

    4. I noticed the menu bar across the top is missing. I will assume that is by design, but it would be nice to replace it. On a side note, menu options were also removed from the paperdoll.

    5. Typing seems to be slow and choppy. You type a few characters and theres a slight delay from them appearing on your window which becomes irritating if you have to erase things.

    6. Health bars aren't properlly closing when I hit the "x". Please allow people to right click to close *again*

    7. In addition to #6, health bars are also very tiny (like a little red string). Would be nice to increase it's size a tad bit to make it easier to follow.

    I guess those are the only problems I really identified in 10 minutes worth of game play on the EC. The landscape looks really nice although it takes a few seconds to render on my chipset (which may also be part of my problem).

    Some of this may also be due to me being unfamiliar with the client, but upon logging in, I noticed several compatability issues, and I cannot for the likes of me figure out where options is to adjust some of the window sizes.
