      Computer Performance and Wiz

      I've been talking to friends about wiz performance and computer setup a bit as it seems wiz hasn't been running as well since the Spring update. Not sure if its just us as we tend to box 2+ windows at a time.

      Was wondering what you computers/setups you guys are playing on and if you've seen any performance changes over the past few months?

      Re: Computer Performance and Wiz

      I got a pretty significant upgrade last year from what I was running on, a dying HP G7 Pavilion. I do single box, and it's running worse for me. I'm running with a Radeon RX580 GPU and a Ryzen 3000 series processor, and can run DOOM Eternal at 60fps on high quality, Cyberpunk 2077 avging 45fps on high quality graphics, with my best performing game being Rainbow Six: Siege with every setting as high as possible, topping out around 300fps, while consistently running 200.

      Wizard101 performs terribly in remastered areas. I get constant framerate drops in Wizard City whenever a new creature loads in (i.e., going from the Lost Souls to the Skeleton Pirates in Unicorn Way). From areas without remastered content in Krokotopia to around Polaris, I haven't had these issues. I can't say for certain about Karamelle, I haven't been there yet.

      Re: Computer Performance and Wiz

      I personally have 16gb ram and have a gtx 1060 6gb graphics card, and the only issues I've been having are lagging while entering Loremaster's Chamber, and when items that dropped disappear on the left side, the screen freezes for a split second. The items disappearing are more of a nuisance especially when dual boxing since it may make the 2nd wizard late to a battle. My old laptop always ran bad from new to the day I replaced it, so I haven't seen a drop in performance myself in that respect.

      Re: Computer Performance and Wiz

      My current computer is an Alienware Aurora R9 hooked up to a large TV and so far I haven't had any major issues. My old laptop had issues but it was really old so it understandably took time to load stuff.

      Arrow Re: Computer Performance and Wiz

      My gaming PC hasn't had any troubles running Wiz, but I have noticed a significant lag spike whenever I try to open my spelldeck and TC menus. Loading screens also seem to have slowed down over the years, but I account all of these problems to the game itself rather than my computer.

      Hmm ... no performance changes at all on the equipment I run. Most of the computers are old by today's standards.
      DESK TOP #1: No issues at all, and I have ancient equipment by today's standards. AMD 6-core Vishera 6300+, put together early 2013. Graphics card is an AMD Radeon HD 6900 Series 256 BIT, and 16Gigs of DDR 3, Asus Mainboard M5A97R2.0. Windows 10 Professional.

      DESK TOP #2: Slow to load, but runs good. This one is really ancient. AMD Dual-core Athlon II X2 250 Regor 3.0 Ghz put together early 2009. Graphics card is a Power Color (Radeon) AX 4650; 128 BIT lane 4 Gigs of Kingston DDR3, Biostar A770E3 AM3Mainboard. Windows 7.

      LAPTOP #1: HP Envy (2013 ) Intel i7 with dedicated Nvidia graphics card, 8gigs of Ram. Runs well, but the Vishera desktop performs better. This computer had windows 8 when I purchased it. Upgraded to Windows 10 home last year. Runs a tad bit slower with 10.

      LAPTOP #2: HP Pavilion (2021) Ryzen 5 (3rd generation) 8gig memory; Nvidia GeForecr GTX 1650. Loads and runs seamlessly. This is my streaming computer. Windows 10 home.

      Hope this helps

      Re: Computer Performance and Wiz

      I'm pretty sure the majority of my Wiz performance issues are due to how outdated my laptop is. There's been numerous times I've encountered "Area is closed" during loading another area or "Connecting to Server" when going back to the character screen, both of which require me to boot up the game a couple times. I have recently uninstalled and reinstalled the game however if that were to help.

      I need a new laptop quick

      Re: Computer Performance and Wiz

      i'm running a home-made PC with an Athlon II CPU, 8 GB ram, a Radeon HD 6450 card with 4 GB memory, a MS-7693 motherboard and a multi-partitioned 7.2k rpm Seagate HD, Under Win 7.

      So definitely not a new machine.

      Globally the game runs ok with a single window, and for multi-boxes I get slowdowns when i'm in very populated areas (like Ambrose commons area 1 for instance). Also i notice often a slight delay in actions (ex, when taking a pip, another player that is running with me gets it first, even if on my screel i'm in front), but that is probably more due to the internet lag than the pc itself.

      But yes generally this started happening since the spring update, before that even a dual box would work fine everywhere.

      Also i'm using classic interface, because of the too living colors on the new one, and I believe classic to be "lighter" than the other for the graphic card (just an hypothesis, tho)

      Re: Computer Performance and Wiz

      I can't compare it to the previous months since I haven't been on in awhile but I haven't had many problems with the game even though I am dual-boxing on occasion. The worst thing that seems to happen is that my mouse "disappears" on my monitors on occasion, but that could easily be my mouse sensors going out. I did recently get the computer built up sometime last year though so the specs are newer than my almost 11 year old computer that I used to play it on.

      I have no issues running 1 or 2, but 3 or more now makes everything run to hot, so I really can't box like I used to.
