      Re: Question about Mac users

      @Sparck tagging you just in case you missed these posts earlier One last problem I realised was the lag time that occurs when we discard/draw/enchant cards.

      Re: Question about Mac users

      Last weekend I did a huge questing session before uni started up again. In the unnamed (large) number of hours that I played I crashed on my mac about 10 times. It became a joke between my questing partner and me because it was happening so frequently...

      Apart from all the crashes...

      My screen also freezes for about 5 seconds when the spell selection period begins, leaving me less time to pick my spells, and if I want to enchant any of my cards, my screen freezes again for a second or two.

      I also have the problem with loading when entering another area. It takes a VERY long time to load another area. I've never timed it but it's definitely more than 30 seconds because I've missed entire spell selection turns when teleporting to people when they're in battle.

      For anybody wanting to argue that's my wifi or something like that, we have another computer in my house that's not a mac that doesn't have these problems that runs wiz fine.

      Here's a thread of some pictures from myself and others of some visual glitches in wiz experienced on macs (posted to be humorous but at the same time the glitches can be annoying lol).

      Re: Question about Mac users

      I'm going to try to figure out what it is because that might help @Sparck fix this.
      So, what we know:

      1) Excessive loading screen time (The screen seen when entering game after having chosen a player in the character selection or going between zones). What I mean by this is if a player goes from one area to another, such as going (or porting) from the commons to the shopping district will usually take a while (for me personally it is about 3-5 minutes but that most likely varies from person to person). This also occurs when switching from one realm to another, although it does not occur when exiting off a player to go back to the loading screen. I first became aware that this was not supposed to occurring when I watched a video of someone fighting Grandfather Spider and the loading screen for Mirage was only on their screen for not even a full second when the entered the dungeon. This issue appears to be linked to the total amount of things (a certain hat, a type of pet, world data, a new fish, the animation for a new spell, a new housing item, etc.) that have ever been loaded on that specific player (although it has no effect on the other players on the same account). This issue is definitely the most problematic as it makes it very, difficult to assemble a team using the team up sigil (either the player doesn't wait and kills off the first creatures and thus making it impossible for the mac user to complete the dungeons quest without restarting the dungeon, or they assume that the player ditched them and they just leave).

      2) When another player flees from a duel (it doesn't matter if the fleeing player is on the mac user's team or if they are PvP-ing the mac user), the mac user's screen is frozen for a solid 10-15 seconds. Although the 30-second timer during the "spell phase" (when the players pick the card that they will use) acts as if there was no lost time, it stops early (usually this is approximately the 30 seconds minus the time the screen was frozen, although I certainly need to test that equation a bit more to be sure).

      3) In a duel (It doesn't matter if it is PvP or PvE), the mac user's screen is frozen for the first few seconds of a spell phase. Again, the 30 second timer acts as if there was no lost time, although it does stop early for the mac user (maybe at 5-10 seconds left). This delay is also seen when the player draws a treasure card, enchants a spell, or discards a spell / treasure card / item-card.

      4) On macs the game does occasionally crash. There are sometimes warning signs, such as the following:
      Name:  Screen Shot 2018-09-30 at 3.52.18 PM.jpg
Views: 111
Size:  95.9 KB

      I am not sure why this occurs.

      5) When a mac user opens up their deck, then there is usually a 10-20 second loading time where the players screen is frozen. The more times the player does this in a single session (by session I mean how long the mac user has been been on that specific player without logging out or going back to the character selection screen), the shorter this loading time becomes. This also happens for when the player opens their treasure card inventory, although the loading time for this goes away faster (the loading time for the treasure card inventory I'm fairly sure is also decreased by just going on the regular deck).

      6) Theres also the blank launcher screen. Although the launcher does not show the "Ravenwood News" as it would on a non-mac computer, it does have the link to a website that has the Ravenwood News so I'm not sure if this really needs to be fixed.



      I think that I covered everything, but if I didn't let me know.

      Re: Question about Mac users

      Macbook pro 2017 user here.

      I have pretty much the same issues.

      1. Long 15 sec+ loading screens whenever I enter somewhere.

      2. Whenever someone flees in my team, it freezes for 5 seconds per person, so it's 15 seconds if everyone decides to flee and restart and I happen to not do it first.

      3. Freezes for 3 seconds every TC I draw and another 3 seconds when I enchant.

      4. 1fps in the Commons and a crowded arena.

      5. Random (seems to be) overload game crash like the previous screen shot.

      Re: Question about Mac users

      I am taking tentative steps even mentioning this, because I do not want to raise false hope.
      But, as I logged in a couple minutes ago, and went on the character screen, I pressed 'PLAY' on my max level character. Usually, it takes 2-3 minutes to load in the area. To my pleasant surprise, it took all but a couple seconds to load the page!
      It seems that KI might have fixed the Mac lag issue during the maintenance. We need to test whether this is a once-off luck issue, and whether it extends to (most importantly) the battles: does discarding, drawing tc and enchanting cards still create lag? @Sparck if you could update us on this that would be wonderful!
      In the meantime I'll happily go about my wizard business without lag

      Re: Question about Mac users

      @Sparck unfortunately it stopped being so smooth. I was using a new mac but now as I downloaded more worlds it probably got more laggy Discarding/enchanting cards takes long time, and loading new areas takes long time as well. Anything you can do to fix this?

      Hmm, downloading more things shouldn't slow it down, at least not in one instance or area. What Mac do you have?
