Hey, I just started playing Determinance, and I like it, but I am having a hard time with online play...
It seems very laggy no matter what, and even in single player I cant get the extra weapons (daggers, clubs, etc.) to work in the beta. Also, I cant seem to get the custom poses to work either...

Can anyone shed a little light on these subjects? I haven't been able to find much about it in the help menu or in the forums.

I put this in the beta thread because my main question is how to get the extra weapons working...
P.S., I purchased the game, so its not a matter of demo limitations

Hi Xanthyn,

Sorry you're having problems - I'll see if Ian can take a look later but we're pretty busy today!

When you say you can't get the extra weapons to work in the beta, what do you mean exactly? Try this - Host a game of Free for All on Confluence then press escape. Go to Admin and set Allowed Weapons to "All" then press Set Options. Then go to Player and you should see the list of all the weapons there. Select whichever one you want - one of the Axes might be easiest - then the next time you spawn you should have that weapon - does that work for you?

Let me know.

I'm playing beta v.12 As stated elsewhere, the "join" button only says "oin." Also, the arcade mode text has white boxes in the place of punctuation marks. Also the detail textures on the ground give a bit of a performance hit.

When playing the beta version, do you have access to the same servers being used by demo players? The servers seem way more deserted than I remember.

Thanks for these.

Ha ha VERY known bug. I've been driving Ian insane by asking him when he's going to fix that approximately once every half hour.

Also the detail textures on the ground give a bit of a performance hit.


Hmm, not sure what's up with that. Will ask the master.

Not currently. When we've fixed a couple more things, we'll release the beta as a proper update for everyone and then it'll be played by all.

Cheers for the reports, dude.

Hey, thanks for the help. I have got the new weapons working, and the custom poses are working fine in the beta. I still can't seem to find anyone to duel though :/.

Also, for the sake of reducing lag, can we host our own internet servers, or is that for LAN only?

You sure can host your own servers - just start a game with "host" and, as long as your firewall allows ports 28000 and 28002, everyone with Determinance should be able to see it.

Just played some v12 against a human. Had some trouble with selecting one weapon (archtwin) and starting the round with another thing altogether (big slow double-headed axe). Also choosing a dagger or a crossbow gives me a tiny spear.

It also suffers from way more graphical slowdown than the original release

Mishief, I'm concerned about that framerate problem. Can you

(a) Verify that you're running on the same settings as your old DT

(b) Temporarily remove the folder dt/data/terrains/details and tell me if it significantly speeds stuff up.

If you feel like doing that Mischief, many thanks.

Uh... is 1.5 supposed to ask me to register and then refuse the key I used the last two times?
