A new client version has been patched to Blight. This includes some major updates related to performance and loading, but please be aware that this patch does not include content changes.

Optimizations:

  • Improve performance of animation system when switching between standard animations (walk, run, step, etc.)
  • Speed up the equip items code
  • Cleanup character loading / visibility so that total number of visible characters so that maxFullCharacters / maxPartialCharacters values are respected (in ClientPrefs_Graphic.def). The video tab Graphics Detail slider controls this. To improve performance, lower slider if going to be around lots of non-monster characters.
