Descriptive Problem Summary: When using the web client, four direction icon states can appear incorrectly in some cases. After moving south or north, moving in a diagonal direction leaning the same way as the initial movement will result in the initial directional movement icon state remaining. This differs from Dream Seeker in that Dream Seeker will display the other diagonal direction icon state.
Numbered Steps to Reproduce Problem:
1) Log into a game using the web client in which the client's mob has four directional movement states (A different icon for each of the four directional movements).
2) Move north.
3) Move northwest.
4) Observe that the mobs movement state remains north, and not west, as it would in Dream Seeker.
5) Repeat steps 2, 3, and 4 using the other combination for north, and the two combinations for south.
Expected Results: The movement state should favor the latter direction when moving diagonally.
Actual Results: After moving North/south, followed by a diagonal, the movement state favors the former part of the diagonal direction.
Does the problem occur:
Every time? Or how often? Only in the case of North and South movements.
In other games? Only in games which the mob uses four movement states and allows diagonal movements.
In other user accounts? Untested.
On other computers? Untested.
When does the problem NOT occur? Untested.
Did the problem NOT occur in any earlier versions? If so, what was the last version that worked? N/A.
Workarounds: Use Dream Seeker.
