GOTM Postponed - FPS Drop Measures

Recommended Posts

Greetings citizens of the republic!

 

It is well-known that the Framerate Issue (FPS Drop) has become a leech that has slowly been eating away the life of our beloved DarkRO: Rebirth. This started at around month 2 or 3 after the server launch when the population boomed and it has haunted us since then.

 

We’d like you to know that the previous updates and an upcoming update have already been planned beforehand and set in stone for release. However, that does not mean we have not focused on the FPS Drop issue all this time. In fact, that is far from the truth. We’re hoping that the next update keeps you busy while we perform the things mentioned below.

 

We already have an idea of the cause but we cannot 100% guarantee what it is. We have several possible solutions that we’d like to try as soon as possible and we were hoping that you’d all cooperate and help us kill this leech. Please understand that this is a rather difficult problem for RO in general due to it being a very old game and the fact that it has not received any major optimizations and updates for new technologies.

 

Other servers are experiencing it as well and even the emulator developers themselves aren’t 100% sure of the fix. We can either solve this with 1 solution or it can be a collective of several. Either way, we’ll explore all of these solutions in the next several weeks. We cannot reveal the exact measures we’ll be taking to ensure that the tests we conduct will bear the most natural and legitimate results so we’re asking for your understanding and patience regarding this. Just keep playing as normal, and we'll handle all the dirty work behind the scenes. Further updates will be posted.

 

Guild of the Month -  Postponed!

 

In line with this, after further discussion with the DarkRO: Rebirth Staff, and hearing the collective voice of the players and guild leaders, we’ve decided to postpone the Guild of the Month event until further notice. This was a difficult decision due to the fact that this is a very popular event that attracts the most people and it involves cash prizes. The results from Day 1 have been saved and we'll include this in the scoreboard when we continue.

 

We are truly thankful that you are all still with us after these difficulties. We know that you’re tired of seeing us apologize to you so we hope this piece of informational news brings a sense of hope and calmness.

 

As a small token of our appreciation, we'll be giving you the following bonuses:

  • x2 WoE Points (August 22 & 23)
  • x2 Gold Room Points (Aug 22, Midnight - Aug 24, Midnight)
  • x2 KoE Points (Aug 24 & 25)

 

Once again, we are sorry you all had to go through this and we hope to bring you better news in the coming weeks!

 

 

Thank you so much and may the force be with you!

Can you adjust the botchecker?

Less BIG RED LETTERS and more calming font? It is already indiscriminately annoying and you still want it to be visually toxic.

Sincerely, token quester/ex-Ygg farmer.
