    Any plans to upgrade the graphics? I feel like only the fan bois from old are going to play unless the game gets a boost and evolves into something more modern. Yes the game is a blast and kicks ass as its the only one of its kind, but the same problem of there being no marketing division could be a problem in the long run. too bad the company couldn't get DFUW graphics and formed it into the game they want, instead we have graphic from so far back when adventurine started development of the game that EQ2 looks better graphically.

    anywho hopefully its something in plans. Darkfall needs an overhaul, unity, unreal engines.. anything would work and would be cheap imho i dunno.. just sad that this is the only option for this type of game.

    We do plan to keep up with our graphics overhaul, the first iteration didn't work out to well as i'm sure many members can tell you about :p but our next patch will help to tweak/tone down the problem areas.

    Trying to get it out asap for you guys, couple final things being tweaked/worked on hoping to get it out early this week. We aren't trying to delay the patch, we understand the textures are causing issues and are working as fast as we can to push out the texture changes and a couple other things we have been working on.

    im still playing but i know some ppl have taken an extended break because of the load lag issues that came outta the last texture updates. u guys might consider doing hotfixes on this type of stuff as soon as u have them resolved instead of waiting to add a few more things to make the patches larger.. even if the other things arent far behind the hotfixes.

    imo frequent small patches/fixes beat weeks of shitty gameplay/players not logging on because of it

    Yup we tend to agree and have done quick hotfixes in the past after patches that have some small issues in them. We just recently picked up a second test server to make the patching/hotfixing process much smoother.

    The issue we have had with hotfixes in the past is once we patch everything we want, the devs then push more stuff onto test to have our QA team run through and get a head start for next patch. The problem this opens us up to is if we do need to hotfix, there needs to be reversions of stuff that has been put in since the time we patched and the time we need to hotfix which can lead to some issues and a messy situation.

    With the second test server we have up soon i believe, we will be able to have one that is a live copy that we can hotfix on and push straight to live while keeping everything test worthy on the other test server so we we hopefully don't have these issues in the future.

    The only area where click to loot functionality currently works is monster graves i believe. I believe we may be expanding that in the future for ease of use in other aspects.
