Descriptive Problem Summary:
Randomly when people log in to Final Fantasy Legacy, their network delay is set to ridiculously high values, and with ridiculously high, I mean 100+, even 1000+, causing the subject player to experience extreme lagginess.
It also happens while playing. And - I think - most when lots of players are logged in (30+).
Also, it doesn't happen for everyone, some players never have higher delay than 10, and I've never had it higher than 5 personally...
Numbered Steps to Reproduce Problem:
1: Login to Final Fantasy Legacy
2: If you get unlucky, your network delay will set to extremely high values, either immediately after logging in, or after a while of playing.
Normal, low network delays
High delays of 50 and up
Does the problem occur:
Every time? Or how often? Not every time, nor for every player. Some have never had this issue, it seems to be a selection of players. Random? I don't know, it might depend on their hardware... or distance from the server?
In other games? The players say that Final Fantasy Legacy is the only game with this particular problem.
In other user accounts? This should be irrelevant.
On other computers? I haven't been able to test this, but it may have more to do with the type of internet connection.
When does the problem NOT occur? Seemingly at random...
Did the problem NOT occur in any earlier versions? If so, what was the last version that worked?
Well, for sure it didn't happen some time in the past, it started happening around the time when detection for off-screen large icons was added. (mind you, Final Fantasy Legacy does use a few huge icons)
Manually setting the network delay to a lower value using the .configure delay command.
