First, I had to download a full .zip game because Akamai Download manager would not install the download from the Aeria website.
Then I un-installed and deleted ALL.. (that I could see)
At that time, I had played toons and gotten to level 8.
Then, I downloaded another from the aeriagames website.
This time Akamai Download manager worked, and the game became more like it should be.
The Current situation is tenuous/intermittant.. FPS is 3.5-0.0 fluctuates, and has jerky motion with character play.
For a moment the game loaded and showed 30FPS then instantly went down while the character screen came on.
First time using any key presses, usually the skills tab will work. But, sometimes stop working.
(Slider slips too, and then nothing works.) Then, I can only escape to get back to screen.
OTHER Buttons work from my HUD. These affected are related to pressing/activating, and sending signal through graphics to the Shaiya server... and they are not responsive.
SEEMS TO ME... Tech support has heard this issue many times before.
So, I read forums, browsed internet, and began updating graphic card drivers, networking drivers, and completed the work-around for lost targeting key(graves accent)... still, not working.
Tech support said for me to run CCleaner and Defrag the disk, which I did.
Now, the first character on my list is a fighter. Now, I am seeing black on his character screen for background that is overlaid on everything except the character. Over everything. And, the other characters start screens are fine!
In-game.. the ground has a black "sheet" in my nearby proximity. Further from me, there are textures.
This is a Dell 1010 mini notebook with windowsXP, DX 9.0c, and while it is NOT in spec for running this game, everything works except these important things... Skill tabs/skill panel, warehouse, NGC/Quests.
Keypad -G,O,B,M,C,ASWDQRTIUHL... all work. I can target, and use number keys to attack mobs.
I did not think this game was so dependent on frame rate.. send/receive between client and server. When I had the game on a better pc, with ADSL... I still had FPS difficulties.
But, if anyone has any idea... Please help!
