[DS] The game viewport will sometimes stop updating
for what it's worth, i've never experienced this problem in my games, i've been programming since 2005, and i haven't used client/New() in any of my games.
How about you pick an ss13 server and play for a few rounds and see for yourself?
Question for those still experiencing this: During a freeze, do animated icons keep animating? (I mean specifically ones that use an animation built into the icon itself, not the animate() proc.)
