Miasmus.2364 Posted May 23, 2019 Share Posted May 23, 2019 Hi,I would like to share official optimization and API statements from Anet since the release of GW2 and open it for discussion again.Here first one from 2012, right after release of the game, performance was an issue on release too: https://www.facebook.com/GuildWars2/photos/for-those-of-you-who-have-been-asking-about-dx11-support-for-guild-wars-2-our-go/10151048222709209/Here second one from 2015: https://www.reddit.com/r/Guildwars2/comments/3ajnso/bad_optimalization_in_gw2/csdnn3n/I don't recall any other official statements from Anet about optimization or API update and if i am right, i think we would get another official statement after 4 years from the last one.I think 2012's official comment is already obsolete since WinXP usage was around %40 and decreasing in 2012 but today WinXP usage almost non-exist.And 2015's comment on reddit made obsolete by https://github.com/megai2/d912pxy modification. Seems a fan made modification can get you up to %30 performance increase.Performance is main issue, but on the other hand, some graphical capabilities already showing it's age. For example, especially after release of flying mounts griffon and skyscale, limits of draw distance become more obvious.Thank you... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
