It’s been super awesome to see you all testing the HTML5 alpha before it is public.
We’re almost ready to go live again with the main game where everything will be back to normal (as in you’ll be logging into using https://play.cprewritten.net)
The most important performance tip that players will find useful will be to turn their Hardware Acceleration on inside their browser they are using. I would recommend to go into their browser’s settings and then typing in ‘Hardware Acceleration’ and turning it on. Please search online on how to do this specifically with your browser in mind, it is important to be cautious when going inside settings.
Another performance tip would be to try using a different browser such as Microsoft Edge instead of Google Chrome (if you are having issues with Chrome). Unfortunately, Google Chrome blacklists old hardware and can make it rather laggy in-game if it is outdated.
If you wish to use Google Chrome, we’d recommend to enable the Override Software Rendering List in their about:flags section of their browser, again, you can also search up how to do this specifically with your browser in mind. Please only enable this as a last resort, also make sure that you have hardware enabled.
We are almost done transferring all eight million accounts, it is important to now be prepared with performance in mind. We are constantly working on tuning the performance for old computers, however, for the most part, it is running extremely smooth for many. Those that log in during our public launch will receive a limited edition pin for their playercards, thank you all for testing and joining us on this new journey of ours.
Until then… Waddle on!
