Was that you? Only 20FPS ? what spec you on?

Also, could you not see the chat messages or me? Or just didn't feel like chatting Smiley

EDIT: It should be frame limited to 30 fps btw.

Thanks for trying it on 1.4.2 Smiley

Did you have problems with the original demo too? Haven't checked back on that thread.

Was the scrolling really terrible at 13fps?

Major update for me, minor update for the outside world. I've added character creation and fixed a few lag and graphics issues.

Yeah, its a bit of problem. Once I get a bit more of the game in there I'll try and arrange a time to meet up and load test the thing.

Next features:

a) Code comments and release the source
b) Chat area safety/font/command system (/ me /bug /idea)
c) New game area, something with a bit more personality
d) Actions, so you can actually enter that damn Inn! Smiley

New version uploaded. Additions are:

a) A new map, its not meant to be great but it should be contained, if you find a way into the void, let me know.

b) Chat tidy up, you can't dump raw HTML into chat any more, the font is nicer and I've added a command system.

/ me - emote
/bug <bug-desc> - logs a bug
/idea <idea-desc> - logs a idea
/recall - jumps your character back to the default location
/who - tells you who's connected to the server
/morph <character type> - morphs you avatar into a different character (be warned this is permanent). Try "/morph prof"
/pos - tells you your current position according to the server

Many thanks to those who have been popping by, the time is much appreciated.

I'll be around for a short while now if anyone is awake Smiley

Ack, I'm at work right now, but I'm usually up pretty late, which is early for you. Next time Im at my computer and I see you on ICQ, I'll see if you're up for some testing.

Almost rock-solid 28 fps (very occasionally hits 27 or 29); there's a slight non-smoothness, which I guess is caused by this <30 fps? (same 1ghz GF2 machine as before).

Diagonal cursors are blacked out instead of yellow.

character moves glacially slowly Smiley.

You're a linux user arn't you Wink

Diagonal arrows, god knows!!!! Linux doesn't seem to like the images which are correct as cursors.

I'm also really surprised by the performance. I had a guy (Owl) on at the weekend, he's got a Celeron 600 and voodoo 3 running linux and got pretty much dead on 30fps all the time, although I think he was using 1.5.

Character movement, yeah I've kept it slow for now, I'll probably add a endurance limited run soon (hold shift maybe).

Markus, high praise indeed coming from you.

As always, thanks for trying it out, hopefully I can make it better as time goes on (instead of my normal destroying the whole thing Smiley)

18fps :-/
GeForce 4 Ti, WinXP, 1.4.0 VM. For it to be going that slowly I think you're doing something wrong somewhere. Scrolling and moving is painful at that speed Sad

It could be the 1.4.0 VM, although I'd still be suprised at the speed.

I'm running it on 1.4.2 VM, on a 1Gz with onboard Intel graphics and getting 30fps and thats _with_ running a local server.

EDIT: If possible, could you try the new VM and if its better then I'll force a 1.4.2 in the JNLP.

EDIT: Or it could be timing issue I suppose, although I run it on XP all the time and use GageTimer so I'd expect this work. You should be stuck on exactly 30fps.

One of those PNG problems perhaps? (assuming you're even *using* PNG)

Me too. I agree it looks like a timing problem: Why does it stick to 28, instead of 30 Huh

PS I'm using 1.4.2-b28, not 1.4.2_03, which *obviously* are completely different VM's  Roll Eyes. Maybe - just maybe - this is part of the problem. I'll try it on 1.5 beta if I get the spare time

For those who are interested, I've just uploaded a new version

Externally:

* Frame limit is now configurable, if you've got a good machine you can run with lots of FPS (not that it matters)
* Fullscreen mode supported (at least Java support, which seems to means some windows machines only).
* /quit - you can now quit, woo hoo
* Few niceness tweaks
* Movement speed increased (albeit only slightly)
* /who has been fixed
* /em is now supported in addition to / me
* Timeouts, if you don't do anything for 15 minutes you'll get kicked off.

Internally, the network code is much more clever. Only sends "local" updates. Only sends updates when updates have actually happened. Hence, it'll probably have bugs Smiley

To those who have logged on and had a go, cheers, its been very useful. A few people seem to have discovered the /bug and /idea commands. Feel free to use them so far its been really useful stuff.

Finally, I'm sorry, you still can't get in the Inn, its next on my list.

Some more updates, you can now read the signs and enter buildings. You can finally enter the Inn!!!

No bar keep as yet, or bar for that matter. Next on the list.

It took a while since its implemented as a generic action system.

1.  I had a bit of trouble getting out of the inn, had to move the guy back and forth till he found the door.

2.  I'm running 800x600 res and I couldn't see the chat entry box - if it was there.

3.   Why do I need to register and supply an email?  Seems to be overkill for a demo....

No one else was on but it seemed to run smoothly over my dial up connection.  Good job!

Yeah, its to do with the operation distance that was defined for the door. Hopefully its just a configuration error.

Ah, hadn't thought of this Wink Currently you could try running in fullscreen mode. I'll add a non-decorated window mode option aswell.

Tbh, you don't actually need to specify an email if you don't want to. Its more if I see your client cause an error on the server I could mail to ask you how you managed it Smiley

Actually, I was on, but wasn't awake. If you didn't see anyone else moving then you probably didn't get any traffic, but thanks anyway Smiley

Thanks to the group that logged on at the weekend, there were 6 guys wandering round (which is as close as I get to a load test atm). Unfortunately I missed it Smiley

Hopefully the new version (that is uploaded) will fix the issues you raised (apart from a certain graphical glitch with house roofs)

Anyone who's interested, the game server will be down for a week or so. I'm moving house so I'll also be without net connection.

Not sure how I'll cope Wink
