Default download game

ok a few suggestions here for you ,
my main one is --make this a download game and not a browser game with lag !!!

since this game is mainly about gambling thats have a proper gamble where you can actually win money and not the waste of time JACKPOT BATTLE.
i would like to stake a tenner on that i could pop so and so etc and it would be up to the opponent to accept the wager ,you could make it clan oriented aswell ,all sorts of stuff lol

wooo

TERRIBLE IDEA!!! The reason DarkOrbit is so incredibly awesome is that you do not need to download anythnig; I am making this post from a different computer than my own even as we speak! If you have lag, you have a slow connection, or, more likely, a slow computer.

Do some testing to figure out where the lag comes from.

Post your results from:

1. http://www.speedtest.net
2. http://www.pingtest.net

3. Click Start button, in the Run menu type in CMD, then type ping www.darkorbit.com and tracert www.darkorbit.com

You can learn a lot about your Internet Connection and where the issue lies.

Does your computer slow down considerably when running DarkOrbit game, check task manager? I'm referring to your computer's ability to multitask. Older CPUs are not that good at allocating system resources to different tasks and since this is CPU intensive game, it's hogging the system resources.

And what would be your explainion for lag after you download it?

Cause lag is not only on browser games.

If it was downloadable it would get updates faster.

But for lag. Idk if that would fix anything.

But it would help it more better graphics.

I'm going yes for this. But I'm also on a no for it for some reasons.

1. Wooden PC's wouldn't be able to play (at least my pc isn't wooden )

2. IDK

Ungl├╝cklich really???

first of all ive NEVER experienced lag....the only way to update a downloadable game would be to use an application like steam which requires a good pc and a good chip....and you would still need a very good connection to see other players....and besides this would cause bp to lose data when changing it since they already have like 63 million already registered so in the long run bad idea....if this was a brand new game prob not but it isnt

Um no.

1) DO would loose most costumers, why? I would NEVER download a game where I have to pay a couple thousand to keep playing.

2) this is a FREE NO DOWNLOAD game PERIOD.

You can still play if it is downloaded. However, a Download game makes the Hackers a near impossibility. Whoops did a say a naughty word....Hackers dont exist on DO I forgot. nevermind bad idea.

you really think a download game would make hacking impossible? Heck it might even make it worse!

If downloaded, I know of a few friends [Just to be clear, I don't do it myself] who are computer geniuses, and could easily hack a downloaded game and get free in-game currency. Hows that sound DO?

Eh, I want it to be downloaded so I can take the files, copy them, make my own game and play by myself. I'll program people into it, and I will love them. <3 Jk, but that's probably what would happen if it was downloadable.
