    The game tends to hang a bit when changing screens lately. I don't know what is causing it, but oh horrors. Look at this screenshot.


    Look verrrrry closely.

    The Drakensang Online logo isn't on a transparent background and I can see the edges of it. :| Please, my eyes. Can fix?

    Nothing wrong with it ... that is how things are working :p
    A lot of things need to be processed first before displayed ... because there are bunch of objects thrown in there and waiting to be animated/processed ... and the issue is like you said
    that is why you can see the alpha channel on the loader :p
    The freezing is the issue

    Go google what alpha channel is and stop creating dumb threads

    Relax dude ... we learn all our lives. ;)
    Actually it is not useless but quite useful since it shows up the game has issues loading contents, especially when files are being deleted.
    That is one of the major reasons I don't go to TS anymore ... I will have to wait all day and die constantly while the game is freezing up.

    But isn't it like a minute work to create a simple batch/bash file to toggle the folders for you should you need it? That's what I've done at least.

    Funny, that's what happens whenever I have to download a new version of the client.. First time I load into any map it takes 1-2 minutes, and when i move game freezes for up to 30 secs to load monsters.. the next thing I know is i'm dead. Especially funny each time I go to PW (2nd map, boss);)
    If only I knew how to do so or what a "batch" is I'd already have done so :rolleyes:..
    Could you show us mere mortals how to fix this game? :D

    If you're on Windows, you create a .bat file with the following content and open it to toggle server, it will tell you which one it has just loaded:
    @echo off
    if exist %temp%\DSOClient_test (goto test) else if exist %temp%\DSOClient_live goto live
    rename %temp%\DSOClient DSOClient_live
    rename %temp%\DSOClient_test DSOClient
    echo Loaded test server
    rename %temp%\DSOClient DSOClient_test
    rename %temp%\DSOClient_live DSOClient
    echo Loaded live server
    You have to create an additional folder with the name DSOClient_test in the location of the normal DSOClient folder first though.

    Have you not read my old posts?
    My DSO Client folder is larger than 15GB ... plus even larger backup folder. Should I dedicate entire HDD to DSO?
    That is when it comes to me ... but WHY should other players be tech savvy so they would create scripts and other crap? Isn't that someone else's job?
    Unless ... it was made on purpose ... so players would always download contents and increase the traffic. The higher traffic could mean more $hi$h kebabs ... you never know.

    Noob :p Check your %temp% again - It has to be cca 20+G (mine is: current 19,8 and backup 19,5).
    (In case that you haven't delete it since we talk about it last time*(were +2k for you :D))*
    So true ...

    That was honestly directed at you, but your other point stands.
