Title: aika ate my laptop
Post by: sendsophia on November 15, 2017, 10:20:38 am
Many of us, in Osty, have been experiencing major dc issues the last several weeks.
I switched to my MSi laptop to play this week, for LM, and I know my cyberpowerpc is dying a slow painful death anyways.
However...yesterday after I dc several times, couple with relics, I experienced a graphics glitch.
Today...my SS no longer works on that laptop and I am having trouble running the game. Coincidence?
Aika ate my laptop?

What do I do?  :(

That's aika telling you to quit the game.

Try reinstalling the game.
Try updating your graphics drivers

If that doesn't work,
Depending on your operating system, windows 8/10 can do a reset of the OS through settings, which leaves all your files intact, you could try that.
Else back up your stuff, wipe your hard drive and reinstall windows.
(If that still doesn't fix it you prolly have a hardware problem)

As for major DC issues, try using a ethernet cable to connect rather than WiFi.

I have been getting ideas and advice from several people and I thank you all.
So, some updates, as I know others are having issues with this in game as well.
I tried bobspally ideas, ideas I got in pm and off fb. (no, not random noobs. People I believe are knowledgeable about such things)
I'll add my laptop specs. I'd add my cyberpowerPC but it died the other day. RIP

So MSi laptop-
Intel core i5-7300HQ cpu @2.50 ghz
8.00 gb
GTX1050
windows 10 home
version 1607
OS build 14393.1884

Now, I've been told most of this dc and graphics glitch and lag, SS breaks, can't tab back and forth to TS..this is because aika doesn't worlkwell with Windows 10.

I tried bobspally suggestions, except reinstallling windows.

I then tried this potato fix:
1. Open nvidia control panel
2. Find “Configuration surround, PhysX ”
3. Changes ur PhysX processer settings “GTX1050” from “auto select”
4. Click applies settings
5. Restart ur laptop

Here are some cow ideas:
 1. Aika hates to be Fullscreen
2. Your Nvidia Drivers are probley too up to date for Aika.
3. SS always brakes on Aika and can only be fixed with Reinstall, well not only but the simplest way . . .

I lag, dc about every 30 minutes, SS is still broken since that weird graphics glitch.

  • windows 8 above direct x, client crashed issues
  • pran graphics, client crashed issues
both makes instantly disconnected or AIKA client crashed.
so lets all use win 7 and direct x 8 cuz we have useless devs that can't make a stable client

Have you tried playing Aika on Windows XP lately? I tried a year ago and it lagged so bad it crashed. Windows XP can't keep up with the graphics strain anymore.

with "a long time ago" i mean 2013 XD.

but if u saying 1 year ago it lagged and crashed...seems like theres no OS 100% compatible with aika...sad.

Most Osty continue to DC every 5-20 minutes. We have to cover each other when raiding, as we dc constantly.
Relogging helps little, setting graphics to low helps little,
Animations are still off...if you watch afk characters...the timing is off. The cycle through the afk animations then jerk on the 3rd.
It has been off for months.

I feel this has gotten much worse this last maint.
