View Full Version : World Map Lag! (Don't use Steam)

07-04-2013, 05:06 PM
As it says in the name, I don't use steam. I only decided to start asking because my friend said it was likely Steam, but I uninstalled the game and downloaded it from the main website and use that version now, yet while many lag problems disappeared, this one remained. Specifically, this lag only occurs when I click on my city, and the soldier menu for that city appears, about once every 3-5 seconds it freezes, (the game) and it stays frozen for about 2 seconds.

Is there a cure for this issue?

I run on the steam version and this happened to me for a brief period. I restarted the game and the issue hasn't happened since. It was a very annoying bug but I dont have anything more for you.
Hope you find a solution :)

By the rate in which replies are coming in, I'm beginning to have my doubts there is a cure to this problem.

I have this problem when my screen is selected but not as bad as you. Likely because I have a stronger computer.

When I'm watching the units in my city as I have it selected, they're changing tasks or degrouping/regrouping. I think that something involving the tasks they're doing in the city and causing this grouping issue may be the problem.

Please email us with your logs and any other information, make sure all drivers are up to date. If the steam version didn't do this maybe switch back otherwise please email us support@reverieworld.com

Sorry to ask such a question, but how does one get logs to share?

If you're using steam

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Dawn of Fantasy\

You will find Log1 through Log5 there. If you have installed Steam to a different directory, find its folder and follow the folder path I listed there.


This lag only occurs while city is selected in the world map. When it happened to me, I had ~60 peasants. If the resource they were working on emptied, they would stop for a moment and pull out of the "wood" grouping of peasants and go to the hand symbol. This also occured on stone/gold peasants. A brief moment later they would switch back to what they were doing. If you watched my screen you would see groups change constantly, roughly 1 every 2 seconds.

Still confident the lag is from group changing =)

The thing is, I'm not using steam as mentioned before a few times. Even the name of this topic says I don't use steam. xD But anyways, I hope it's fixed soon!
