For the Record: Storm’s microdigest
Source: http://world-of-kwg.livejournal.com/256154.html Author: Storm Hello everyone, Storm is writing another of his short posts on what the game developers managed to do (earlier posts included the recent one about Lowe buff and the one about 8.9 crashes). Overall he is not happy about the last posts’ feedback (there were a lot of rude people in the comments), but he will continue to bring these insights nonetheless (appreciated!) Currently: - developers managed to fix the old and annoying issue with tank silhouettes not displaying properly when you are hidden behind/watching the target from behind another destroyed/live tank - developers continue to deal with the crashes in 8.9, Storm states that 99,9 percent of them are connected with mods and the remaining percentage doesn’t exceed the usual crash rate in any patch, in connection with various reasons for various players: drivers, other software, hardware issues etc. – nevertheless, the developers will continue to work on finding patterns in non-mod crashes and the reasons for them From the discussion: - the Japanese will come in next patch - driver-side forced anti-aliasing is not compatible with WoT - apparently the changes above will not appear in 0.9.0 (the silhouette fix a developer version only apparently) - apparently, the lags many people experienced after 0.8.9 were connected (at least on RU server) with “data route providers” (in Russian the word is “magistrala” – “highway”, I don’t know the proper English term) - there is also a mechanism being tested, that automatically sends bug reports to WG when a client crashes - 9.0 will contain “many interesting things” - Storm confirms that T-44-85 will not appear in 9.0 - Storm has no info on EU server post-0.8.8 (or 0.8.9) lags yet I will go thru the rest of the discussion later in the daily QA.
