Can't play at all - no Byond version works (without utterly crippling issues) & I might as well ask here
Created by: MasterofNothing
Which Byond version should I use? I'm having terrible, game breaking, crippling issues and I've tried a whole bunch of things already. Other suggestions also very welcome.
511.1374 = can't move without BLEEP BLEEP BLEEP sounds 511.1373 = frozen viewport for 10 sec upon joining and bleep when moving 511.1372 = goonchat fucked, bleeping when moving 511.1371 = goonchat fucked, extremely slow joining, bleeping when moving, dreamseeker won't shut off, unless forced 511.1370 = bleeping when moving, viewport freezes first 30 seconds 511.1369 = viewport freezes first 15 seconds, bleeping when moving, higher ms 511.1368 = bleeping when moving 511.1367 = least terrible so far, but still fucking terrible, but viewport sometimes freezes + takes 30 seconds to work at all, subtlepm format is fucked up, crew monitor takes time to work 511.1365 = frozen viewport, no chat messages/radio arriving 511.1364 = messy tiles = lag 511.1363 = messy tiles = lag 511.1362 = viewport doesn't even work. At all. Dream seeker process gets stuck 511.1361 = messy tiles = holy fuck, is this a slideshow? ... 511.1348 = messy tiles = SEND HELP & consoles don't work properly / at all 510.1347 = 4000+ ms
My system is fine - i7 5820k, 980ti, no issues with anything other than Byond. I've updated my DirectX with whatever version I could find and I've tried several Nvidia drivers (and I'm now on 378.49). I do run W10, fully updated.
Obviously, I can counter the bleeping on some versions (replace Windows settings with an empty sound file), but this doesn't help at all. Moving then causes lag, and the mouse cursor blinks / shows something's going terribly wrong.
511.1365 stopped freezing for whatever, mysterious reason, when I re-installed it. Not sure if it'll stay that way. It still lags a bit, but at least I can sort of play.
