Severe Map Lag (Android)

Postby Consolarificus » Sat Feb 25, 2017 4:30 am

Hi,

I am running the latest version of the game (2.0.5) on Android 7.0 using a OnePlus 3 phone (so a very capable device gaming-wise).

I am experiencing severe lag on the map, especially out in the open world (doesn't seem as bad in smaller independent maps). It lags when I open it, when I press to look around, when I type in personal notes (few seconds between each key input), and when I close the map.

One more thing: using the map will occasionally break immersive mode (i.e. the status bar will appear on top of the game).

I'd be grateful for any advice in this matter.

Drawing the map is quite taxing and is done on top of everything else. Which means it can lag even on more powerful hardware.

I've now disabled drawing below the map, which should speed it up. It'll be in the next update.

When using the keyboard full screen mode can be disabled. If the status bar appears without using the keyboard, then I have no idea about it. But hopefully it's not too frequent or problematic. :)

Thank you! Looking forward to it as I do use the map extensively.
There are times when the same map can either be very slow or behave properly :?:
I'll report back after the update :)

The issue has only happened once or twice since updating to 2.0.6 :) So it's certainly a big improvement. Thank you.
