Patch Notes - November 2014
Version #412160

Please Note: Changes may occure without any further notice!

Changes
  • The file size of all PNG graphic files has been reduced by approximately 70% in average without any visible quality change. This should result in much shorter download times especially for players with slower internet connections, as well as less impact on any incoming traffic quota players might have.

Bugfixes
  • Google Chrome 39: An error that resulted in in-game windows like Messages and Research not working correctly anymore has been fixed. This also resulted in better performance for some UI animations in Chrome. (Special thanks to community member N003TASTIC for assisting with this issue)
  • This release also includes two hotfixes that have been applied to German Welt 37. These hotfixes should prevent server side performance drops in certain scenarios.

Be advised: The UI animations this refers to is most probably not the same as those you have switched off.

Dowlonading all the PNG files should be much faster, we did not take a look at the memory footprint tbh.

RE: Patch Notes - November 2014
I kind of see a visible effect of the new png graphics and it is not a positive one...
Is there any way to get the old ones back?

How about the option to download the graphics to your PC and select the folder? A lot of browser games have this option which makes them really quick but still beautiful.

RE: Patch Notes - November 2014
Could you describe the "visual effect" you see?

The files are stored in your browser cache, so after the initial download they should load real quick when you login.

Well, the effect is that they look like low quality versions of the previous graphics to me. Like they somehow have a lower resolution or something like that. Its hard to identify without the old graphics.

It would help to see them next to each other to be able to compare them.

You can log in to one of the worlds that have not been patched yet, they still have the old graphics.
