So we all know that PW has passed it's expiration date, but is there still any way to boost the playing experience?Yea, PW hardly touches the gfx card and can't use more than one CPU core.That would be fine, since it's such an old game almost any PC can run it even with that extremely out of date engine at it's heart.Problems arise though when the number of players at one PK go above 100.Frames drop to 6, 7 on the lowest setting, while running fine at 50+ fps on the highest of all settings out of PK.Even so, 50 fps on a game with this graphics.. pretty bad.So my question is, how does everyone else deal with 150 player PK, like last night?Is there any hope for PK engine in the future expansions ?
However, PW Engine is extremelly outdated, not quiete sure if Wanmei ( PW company ) will do anything about it , anytime soon , considering how old game is and nothing was ever updated on this aspect
In pwi and china pw there is new engine. Well im not best at these stuffs but i think original pwi graphic looks different + wanmei said they will do it with new expansion, so i think they did.
10 fps ftw +1,3k ping ftw...
They were supposed to be working on angelica3 engine as of last year.I do not know if it has been implemented yet on any server or version.I guess the way you would know is, your fps on the updated engine would be way higher than on epic pw atm.
I have it on most of the times as my fps goes down to 2 with any distance, just have to watch out for random hiero's if i'm on a squishy class because no damage shows up.
I wish the damage showed up on this setting
