Switch graphic detail quicky and scripting help (For PvP)

Postby Jocelyn » Tue Aug 26, 2003 8:21 pm

Hey all!
I find Something Really helpful on Arcanum. I often have to Switch my Detail low and high... for example when i hit a PvP Fight. Then i either enter the Battle and it is too late to switch (Lag is really sticky on you. PS: thats because people walk into battles) , or it will take me 3 minutes anyway to switch all the little Buttons.
So i build a script hehe I did yesyes and it didnt crash AO at least for me but need Beta Testing
You have to make 2 simple empty file in you AO/scripts folder. THere are already some. (they just have a single name and no name after)

Ok in one You copy and paste this thingy:: ( I name file "PVP" )

/option ViewDistance 0.05
/option CharViewDistance 5
/option RealisticWater 0
/option Wildlife 0
/option IsSpaceShipsShown 0
/option RealisticClouds 0
/option SimpleClouds 0
/option Shadows 0
/option BuffsFX 0
/option TracersFX 0
/option NanoEffectFX 0
/option MuzzleFlashFX 0
/option EnvironmentFX 0
/option OthersFX 0
/option ShowAllNames 0
/option FogMode 0
/option GroundRendering 0

/text Activating Lag Killer Mode.
/text All effects Currently Activated
/delay 2000

And In the other you do: ( I name file "PVM" )

/option ViewDistance 0.5
/option CharViewDistance 40
/option RealisticWater 1
/option Wildlife 1
/option IsSpaceShipsShown 1
/option RealisticClouds 1
/option SimpleClouds 1
/option Shadows 1
/option BuffsFX 1
/option TracersFX 1
/option NanoEffectFX 1
/option MuzzleFlashFX 1
/option EnvironmentFX 1
/option OthersFX 1
/option ShowAllNames 1
/option FogMode 3
/option GroundRendering 3

/text Activating Normal Mode.
/text All effects Currently Activated
/delay 2000

Place these two files in your 'C:\Program Files\Funcom\Anarchy Online\scripts\' folder.

Now all you have to do in AO is type /pvp or /pvm
to switch between Low Detail pvp or High Detail pvm mode. I put in all the Detail i need ,maybe you want something else but you can ask me.
Low Detail really wipes the laaaaaag away i tell you.

Any more option you can read on

Have fun

Very nice posting this here!

one more thing, switching those options requires zoning / relogging for them to take effect

however, you can change view distance (both world and char) on the fly and that alone helps alot, b/c majority of the lag are players' animations
This is my rifle.

There are many like it, but this one is mine.

My rifle is my best friend. It is my life.

I must master it as I must master my life.

My rifle without me is useless. Without my rifle, I am useless.

I think i have a clue why it dont work for some of you.
When you name a file "pvm" in the example , look at the properties (right click on file and click properies) and i should just say Filetype : File or something in the different languages.
If it is a Filetype: Word document it doesnt work.

But on other hand i have no idea to fix problem with word document :(

There is a tool, AOscripter that can help making any scripts.

On the Word Doc issue....the reason is people are using MS Word as the word processor for the script.....You need to use notepad or wordpad...found in windows under accessories...this will take care of that issue.
