Not having load-lag in DF is a bummer. What will the devs do?

    SSD is here: (in that ppl are being told to go with SSD). With that, i don't feel load-lag at all. Unlike shadow settings, you can't turn load-lag on or off.

    For those who don't know, on a flat-land, if you can see your enemy, you can sense him with loag-lag. That's pretty far: you get enough time to begone away, mount-up or full buff for a fight.

    @Andrew @Neilk

    Are you planning to do something about this anytime soon? Even before ''SSD'', i wanted a temporary system that could mimic load-lag with a sound effect.

    Complaining because you no longer get a load lag notification when enemy players are nearby has to be the most tryhard Darkfaller statement of 2020...

    You dont even play. As a vet, you should know why load lag is so good. In the state you are at, i still have enough respect to not look down on you like that. Get better in real life.
    --- Post updated ---
    I dont know, i never do. In my own video i can tell, i never get load from players who were never there earlier.

    Not getting loads is indeed better when you dont play darkfall

    I dont know how anyone can find this to be fair.

    Glad Battle Smurf wheeled himself over to this thread to shut down this terrible idea.

    Ok, so if thats a terrible idea, you got a better alternative? Do you think the devs will fix load-lag one day? If not, theb what?

    Personally, i will be waiting for df arena. Load lag will never become a factor over there and i might play df for free for now.

    brain dead.

    If you are that autistic and try hard, just install DF on a shitty old HDD.

    So you take the toxic approach.
    Im not surprise, thats cool. I just find it laughable how you agree in a way that not feeling load lag kinda sux.

    But im good i can jUst play other games and wait for df arena. Thats my solution.

    Just in case, im still here for wagers for everyone else

    ...

    A dev statement would be good. Load lag has been here since for ever.

    In what world does poor hardware/software performance make a game better?

    Load lag was only good for people that played this game like pussies and it took away from ANY kind immersion. Why would I want to know there are people nearby? Let them jump me, so I can get that Darkfall rush.

    Yeah, i want this. And this meme has been part of df since the very start. Not sure if you are seriously asking this question, but no matter what, it's what the rest of us need.

    You not quoting anyone, but you say ''load-lag was'' as if it's not here. Load-lag is... (that's what you meant i'm sure).
    you seriously asking this question? You can tell ppl are nearby with load-lag ''currently''.

    Then talk about hardware. I reported a bug that allowed me to see through everything you know... that was on a old hardware: impossible to do that on 64bit. I reported it as soon as i could see things through: i never been a cheater. It's not even worth cheating in darkfall honestly: there's not that much players.

    I always been on a toaster because i'm mostly a console player. I'm now playing beat-saber and doom on VR with my cousin every weekend. I only upgraded to play fortnite at around 200 fps.

    You can have high performance and still have load-lag. Some users over here who have posted have much higher fps than me: like 500+ fps. They still get load-lag, i don't. I cap at 250 fps. Then i followed several youtube guides to make everything feel much better.

    I Framed 220 ish leenspar golems in DF1 in just a few months.

    Literally never died due to load lag (insta log out on load lag, log back in 30 mins later see if golem spawns)

    But it was balanced since people want to jump other people when they are 1 hit, its the only counter.

    I don't want there to be any sort of artificial load lag or messages to be added to the game, I prefer being able to be jumped at any time because it makes the farming a little less boring.

    However I see where he is coming from, if you are ever in a group with some1 who gets load lag you always rely on that person to tell you if people are coming. It also kinda sucks when people hide waiting for you to get low from a mob to jump you, rather than having a good fight.

    Ehh, load lag being there for some and not others is kind of lame. Either there should be some minor sound effect playing or something to give you a potential warning that a player is approaching and to prepare for combat, or there should be no way to know that another player is close at all.

    Also, I do miss load lag, already risking mob loot + high/medium dura gear and fighting without spell reflect is lame, not knowing that it is time to stat up and look around makes the 'pvp' when jumping/getting jumped worse.

    I do not know about others, but for me, it feels cheap when I can start a fight with 2 rays or a power attack in the back vs a 80% target and the 'fight' is over then and there.

    A temporary measure would be best for us all.

    I hope one day that load-lag will be gone once and for all.
