Weird Lag Bugs

Postby Klandal » Mon Dec 12, 2005 8:33 am

Been getting some really weird lag bugs after spell endings MUCH longer than normal 2 seconds. Thought I'd start posting them to see if they can't be squashed.

I have the same problem too, looks like a bug for me.

It isn't the lag from bash/shieldpunch/kick skill coming from mobs, but I started to have this lag about the same time when kick begin to lag you.

I got this lag when I do smoke xp with my invoker.

yep i've definitely noticed this recently, say the last week or so.. doing xp with bong etc. i'm getting the same rubbish at the end of a spell i am lagged out for a couple of rounds... it's pretty disconcerting... the other plays in group are all getting it also.... can we have a look at game lag or some such? i dunno if it's a bug, but gods forbid this sort of shiz on izans entry room...spanks ahoy!

Please look into this. Either say it's intended or state your intent to address this problem.

I don't have on the time display but it's obvious given the 3 rounds of combat after landing the spell before the commands are executed that far more than 2 seconds of spell lag are being applied. Something was obviously changed, at least random spell lag, which I'd like a god comment on if possible.

Thanks in advance for the fix ;)

I'll be looking into it, but given the periodic nature of the event I can't say when I'll track it down. :(

Eilistraee, thanks for the prompt response. Since this wasn't happening to my knowledge before the 2 second spell completion lag was added in the first place, I'd start my search there. This is almost as annoying as that ancestral shield bug you've been working on for me I'm sure. ;)

Can't you make the a bunch of events echo something to the MUD and say omg test lag, but change the message slightly.
It will be fixed in Toril 2.0.
