With Release R065 we have made numerious improvements to stability and efficiency aimed towards reducing lag
Technical changes to reduces lag and login problems within UDP packages and MTU sizes
- The maximal UDP-package size has been reduced in order to counteract login- or lag-problems caused by unstandardized MTU-sizes. Some routers or ISPs might be using such an unstandardized (reduced) MTU-size or might be handling the splitting and merging of data packages deficiently. Using a reduced UDP-package-size it is more probable that the packages will not have to be split. This should help users that encounter unusual login- /map-change problems or might not even get onto a map or encounter “laggy” gameplay because many packages will be scrapped (these problems have many other causes, as well!)
Java 6 and java 7 problem solving changes for IE9
- When using Internet Explorer 9 there’s a number of problems that can occur – when using Java6 and when using the newest Java7 version (problems that range from “Applet is not visible” to a browser freeze or even a browser crash). With Java7 those problems had been temporarily solved but now there are new problems appearing. This is why we decided to fix to issues: Using IE, the applet will now be integrated by <object> tag, no longer by using <applet> tag. Additionally, the IE9-Documentmode will be now forced to be activated when using the Internet Explorer. This combination of solutions should fix (to our knowledge) all known issues.
