I’ve had a weird glitch a couple of times on the Fane when playing Tyrant in certain areas you get some sort of weird thing from the back of his neck...yeah I can't describe it...

It happened when I got stuck on the Raziel statue…



…and no I wasn't trying to get my Tyrant to hump his leg...honest :lol:

and then again on the stairs with the rubble on…

It's his ponytail! Tyrants randomly have a mohawk-ponytail thing for hair every other time they spawn, although it's not supposed to stretch like that.

I’ve never had visual artifacts after I got stuck somewhere but this is the most laggy map... Here's article about a "weird thing" - http://www.playtool.com/pages/artifacts/artifacts.html I hope that helps.

I'd be very curious to know more about your system because this is actually the least-performance-intense map that we have, according to how the engine handles things.

As to the ponytail issue, I'm looking into it. It happens in a few places in this map so I'm check it out. Thanks!

Even in the lower settings the game runs at more than 256MB of Graphics memory. Combined with low system RAM that may be a large part of your issue. Once people start spamming abilities and particle effects you may have those issues. Why it's only this map is beyond me. (Keep in mind, it JUST got released and may need a few tweaks.)

The Fane is the only map I consistently get a lower FPS on. Do note my laptop is well below the minimum requirements for the game though (8-20 FPS on all the other maps), but I find it weird it would only happen here because it's the, "least-performance-intense map". I'm pretty sure I've seen the pony-tail thing happen on the other maps too, so it's not just The Fane for me.

I play this game on low settings in fullscreen 1280x720 mode. I can't play with windowed/borderless window - if I maximize it changes itself to 1440x900 (native) so this option does not make things better. The lower screen resolution may slightly improve performance /fps but actually it does not scale properly:

Are there any planned updates to optimise Nosgoth? I wouldn't ask about that if I had the same issue with most other new games and this is just 4v4 arena pvp at low graphic settings.

P.S. Lags dosn't happen on "The Fane" only, but I'm sure it is not the "least-performance-intense map", at least for my system.


EDIT: @cmstache, Nosgoth "eats" memory and CPU (always over 70%), not GPU.

Whenever I play tyrant with the Turelim Platemail skin in the Fane there is a graphic bug that sometimes flares up causing his ponytail to glow white and grey and elongate to ridiculous lenghts and apparently other people can see this as well.

It is a small bug, but quite funny :P .
