WoW!!!

Postby Elisten » Wed Mar 30, 2005 3:01 am

(I know there was a post awhile back but I didn't keep digging for it. Forgive me!)

Who of you actually play WoW?

And if you do, anyone play on Darkspear?

While Toril/Sojourn/et. al. will always be in my heart.. I can't get ENOUGH of WoW.

If you ever join up on Darkspear, drop me a line!! Would love to chat!

Love,
Eli

Quite a few of us on Proudmoore actually. (Though not sure if I count as much of a mudder, haven't played, or rather OOC'd, in ages)

My characters are Acria, Adilmira, and Riladaple (Human Warlock, NE Druid, and Gnome Warrior), hit me up in game for some questing/instance running. :D

Seems like the only time Tico is in queue is when other servers are down for maintenance. Don't get me wrong, Orgrimmar is still a clusterfuck that will have your processor screaming for mercy, and there are the occasional 2000ms latency spikes. But overall, it's very playable 95% of the time. Sargeras was definitely worse when I played there.

speaking of mercy - i've got a 256MB ATI Radeon 9600, my friend has an Nvidia Quattro card, both of us will a couple of times a night just have our video card lock up, and force us to reboot the computer.

We have the newest driver updates, no programs in the background, and it doesn't happen with anything but WoW. Has anyone else heard of problems like this?

Tichondrious really only lags when Azuregos and Kazzak are up and both factions fight for the spawn, or when all the servers crap out. The queue is almost non-existant during peak hours.
It will be fixed in Toril 2.0.

yeah i ran the game using the -openGL switch, felt like it ran better, but after a few hours of play it crashed again

so i went into my display settings and switched the hardware rendering to opengl mode as well, again, a few more hours and it crashed

i've run the file corruption tool from blizzard, checked my settings in dxdiag, i don't know what else to do, but thanks for the suggestion!

hurrm .. yeah -open gl fixed me .. my lockups were mostly when my video was tasked pretty heavily .. ie: at gryph rides into SW, and other places like that ...

something else I find odd (but PROBABLY not related) .. had an OLD as hell 80GiG HDD as my prime .. installed a 250GiG as slave (well i was too lazy to switch to the new drive) ...

finally decided to switch to new drive, formatted .. started fresh with clean XP-Pro install , and now do not use open gl mode at all .. and experience no lockups .. isnt that odd?

It is odd, but WoW is pretty RAM dependant it seems. I checked mine out and it was using up 800/1k mb of my ram when I was in the middle of Redridge. If you don't have 1gig of RAM I'd assume you're gonna be paging a lot and slowing down, so an old HD could very well cause some problems.

If you have a Dell computer with onboard sound card, you might experience occasional blue screening. If you ever crash to blue screen with an error in file P16x.sys, that's a Dell sound card driver. I crashed about once an hour when I first installed the game. Then I swapped out the sound card with an old box I had laying around, and never had another crash.

I have 512MB of RAM, and flying into Orgrimmar during peak hours is basically a five-minute ordeal. I land on the wind rider platform, and my video just freezes solid for several minutes. The mouse moves, but nothing updates and no keys respond. I just have to let it sit there until it's good and ready before I can move. Then it'll freeze and jerk until I leave the city, but at least it's playable.

Was just curious...in terms of server side filtering and whatever hardware configuration Blizzard has in place, is WoW even possible without a broadband connection? I've seen the game and it looks good, but my friend was experiencing all sorts of lag with a cable connection and machine that was capable of running the game. Not enough to make it unplayable...just a bit jumpy and annoying in light of the fact that it is a subscription service based game. Anyone have any experience with non-bb connection and gameplay viability?

Yeah, rogues going down faster than a whore on nickle night.

anyway, I have a cable connection and it run just fine. I know a few people that play with dial-up, and they have a few complaints, especially in Ironforge, but they say it's still playable.

Thanks for the input ! Gives me a little food for thought in trying to decide whether or not to pick up the game. I just don't want it to be unplayable and regret purchasing it. It looks to be a nice game, if one that still needs some debugging.

Since Nov 23, subscribers have received 15 or 16 extra days of subscription because of server screwups. I'm on Tichondrious, which is one of the opening day servers, and I still haven't regretted it since.

My guild is small, though we're working on our Onyxia keys and are planning on raiding Onyxia by the end of this month.

As for my character Talsor, he's level 60 with full Dreadmist, has the infernal, just needs to do the epic mount quest, as well as the ritual of doom quest (didnt feel like farming those doomguard commanders) when it goes in next patch.

Just started playing about two weeks ago on Eldre'Thalas -- I wanted a newer server rather than deal with all the problems the more mature servers seemed to be having.

Eldre'Thalas - Alliance
--------------

Bandej -- 23 Dwarf Priest
Atin -- 20 Gnome Mage
Putamerda -- 11 NE Warrior
Vermelho -- 1 Human Paladin

Peronolde -- Horde
--------------

Nubia - 12 Tauren Shaman


I've been thoroughly enjoying this game since I got it. I get a little lag because I'm playing from South America, but it's not too bad. Occasionally I'm having problems with getting booted from the server after I turn in a quest, but that seems to be happening less and less. Which is nice, considering it was happening every time I turned in a quest and forced me to do a complete reinstall of the game *gag*.

Considering how little time I have to devote to gaming, WoW probably means an end to my Mudding days. So I hope I run into you all on one of these realms.

Abracos,
Atin
