Exclamation Re: *** Official Guild Wars Thread ***

Gak! Guild Wars came down hard today. There was a glitch in a server that caused all traders to sell products at unrealistically low prices. It caused them to have to reset all servers back to a state before the problem occured. The game is down now and will be for a few more hours

Quite tragic indeed, but for the good of the game. Without the revert the economy ltierally would have been destroyed for some time.

So how is the upgrade to the sound engine treating everyone, now that we have hardware acceleration and somehwhat of a level of detail? So far I am pretty happy and it seems my framerate has smoothed out when new sound sets/areas load where as previously this would cause a minor hiccup in some zones.

my famerate seems a little better after the update but I haven't done any actual testing. FYI if you have a decent sound card like an A2ZS or higher turn up the sound quality meter under options all the way else you are missing out on a lot of the sound detail you were getting before the update even in software mode.

Got my Factions pre-order disk yesterday, nothing earth shattering but nice to have. Looking very forward to this expansion.

Factions Preview event is on and guess what? They updated the graphics engine to use DirectX 9. Performance seems to be up in the original part of the game and apparently the new part will have better graphics now if your card supports it.

My first impression of Faction is that it kicks major butt. I'm actually excited about playing with my guildies again. I WAS very concerned, but after having the Birdman in my party, my fears have been settled.

Yea, I read somewhere they added a bunch of new shaders and if they detect a card that can support they crank them on. This is going to be a nice upgrade in both content, depth and technology.

I tried the new area today and my options showed DX9 but the game looks the same to me. Maybe they are waiting for the offical release date for the improved visuals but I don't think they are going to change anything.

I logged in BRIEFLY this morning before leaving for work, and I didn't really notice anything different, but then again: I thought this game was absolutely gorgeous to begin with.
