Game Freezes and Stutters when opening map

Gportal Dedicated
Map takes 5 seconds to load sometimes, after traveling for a while.

I am on SSD, my own Gportal Dedicated Server, new on 1/29. Latest patches. No Mods.

When opening the map there is sometimes a 5 second delay, or even sometimes in combat the screen just freezes.

Please provide a step-by-step process of how the bug can be reproduced. The more details you provide us with the easier it will be for us to find and fix the bug:

  1. Get on a mount
  2. Drive about 3 minutes to a new area
  3. Open map
  4. 5 second lag.

Just to confirm, your report is for Exiled Lands (base map), correct? If so, it has been an issue since September 2020 but it doesn’t harm reporting it again, I suppose.

p.S. The issue is not present for me on Isle of Siptah.

Yes, Exiled Lands. Yea I looked it up but didn’t see a resolution.

It happens on any map, I believe, but moreso on EL than IOS due to the size of the map and the assets required. It happens any time it has to read assets (icons, maps, textures, models, etc) from the hard drive in order to load them on demand.

This might be helped if the assets were more trickle-loaded on a larger radius-from-player on a continual basis, but idk the engine specifics enough to say for certain.

I don’t have this “freeze” on IoS, just on EL + this issue was introduced to EL when IoS was released. It was not the case before that.

Correlation does not imply causation. A tech change at IOS launch may simply have allowed a situation that the EL map is closer to exhibiting to become more visible. I suspect that if you add enough content to any map, the situation becomes easier to detect.

However, the key words here are ‘may’ and ‘suspect’, so I will admit that there is no hard proof. Just intuition.

Hey @alancode

We’re aware of this issue and it’s currently in our queue with a coder assigned to it, but no ETA for the fix. We’ll send a poke to the team.

Thanks for the feedback.
