immolation arrow creates a lot of lag iirc (d2 engine lag, not related to computer specs)
therefore this might be the reason that u find yourself/others disappearing

this is a hardcoded bug, related to the skill itself, therefore i can't think of a way to fix this without changing the skillanimation


edit: i just tested this in sp
i shot one immolation arrow at a crowd of cows and experienced lag and my char and the cows disappeared from my view, only my merc remained

i tried in sp too, without any issue in cow level for immolation arrow
freezing arrow gives me little sound issues..stuckering
but no issues with immolation
did a quick search for an alternative skill animation, first google search did not showed an alternative
if you know somewhere a less heavy animation..let me know

My two dollars worth;

Did you check with taskmaster for other running apps, memory usage.

I've had this problem for years, in single play. I need to block the internet with the firewall to stop apps from calling home.

My machine is, 1.2 MHZ, 1 GEG ram & Rage Pro 128 video card. My computer is old enough to go to school. <GRIN> Yes it is an old model "T" still chugging along.
(Ah Joe, model "T" is a Tin Lizzy, made by Ford.)

My merc rouges, do blink out most of the time also.

Slow downs and video problems on my computer seems to lead back to memory usage.

Bye,  :wece:

Hi, Hans we dont play online, only on lan, We have played this mod on and off extensively for a number of years now and have never had this happen before ? Our computers are still fairly hefty having constantly upgraded, 4 gig ram each plus Nvidia GTA 275 video cards etc. We have played through the game on a previous save right through to Act 5 hell and never had this problem before ?
 
Thanks for the help :)
Craig

ce contains an opengl2glide wrapper, that speeds up ce a lot in most cases
if you did a full install there should be an exe file to configer the wrapper...with vidtest from blizzard you need to set d2 to glide too

Hi Hans :)
 
We now are both running under the glide setting which has made a great improvement in overall performance, Have also updates our cards drivers, Still having the vanishing problem when using the immolation arrow.
 
Thanks again
Craig

Hi,
 
Here is a screen shot of what happens in middle of gameplay when using immolation, my map was on at this time also. Hope this helps
