SYNOPSYS

This is a world known as Gaia, in honor to the Goddess who created the land and gave life to creatures inhabiting in it. In Gaia, we follow the story of Kriemhild, a country located in the main continent of this world and the house for a number of personalities that were involved in a short, world-scaled war that lasted ten years. However, the scars of this war are still very present after a few years, and a wicked character has his mind set in causing chaos and destruction in order to serve a purpose which is yet unknown to his victims. It falls into the hands of the people in Kriemhild to stop him, including a young girl named Solveig, who has recently become a knight and is determined to help the country that saved her and gave her a place to call home.

Time to talk about by far the biggest issue i have in this game, the lag spikes

 

||Editors Note: Wow. i really went on a rant this post, huh. the rant is there if you have a minute or two of spare time, but keep in mind that it's a rant and not a callout. you will see why i say when you read it... especially later on. One final note, i don't want anything coming of as negative towards you. i know shit happens and real life events can be rough, so PLEASE don't take anything personally. on an unrelated note though, google didn't have Golem in my PCs dictionary lmao||

 

i was looking back at the comments and i saw you talking about the 'lag burps' that the game produces, and tbh i kinda want to help with that topic. i would assume that you know that the most fundamental thing that all games (excluding certain outliers) is to immerse the player in the game... let you feel like you are actually there... be in the player's shoes... blah blah blah... the usual stuff that everyone over the age of Born tomorrow knows. I wanted to address this problem the most because recent sections of the game have made me... frustrated (for lack of more potent words that wouldn't get me put on the FBI Watchlist) at the lag spikes, take the chapter 7 Golem puzzle for example.  

If it was a simple issue of balancing, then i would hold it off until later because ive already stated a lot of things that are either being worked on, or being looked into. Also it would just be a simple thing that can be fixed by adjusting dmg output, changing an effect, adding a line or two of code to fix a cutscene, you get the point. But an issue badly needs to be addressed once there is something SO fundamentally wrong with the game itself that it makes normally THE MOST BASIC AND THOUGHTLESS THINGS that should require little to no thought, like movement and menu navigating, a struggle/chore to do. and that makes it bad game design, because it breaks the immersion that the game tries to give, because you are actively fighting the controls. And I know that ive said it so many times that im not a game developer, and i havent even worked with rpgmaker ever, so i have no idea what goes into it when you are making stuff and whatnot. I just know what is meant to happen in gameplay.

The only reason I didn't bring it up was because before i had a dogshit quality mac from the forgotten time of 200X (can't remember the specific year, i just know it was at least 2006) so i chalked it up to an unoptimized PC. I got a new(ish) computer recently, and decided to replay the whole way through. The lag spikes were still there, even at the exact same rate as my old computer played it when the game was in beta. here is some context why say it was beta: i just call the version of the game before it got taken down the 'beta' version, just makes more sense to me, also its easy af to type. I personally didn't have to big of a problem with it...

Until Chapter 7

lmao it really is the cursed chapter

anyways, so either A.) my old mac really couldn't keep up with the game, and it coincidentally spiked at the same rate as the current version of the game does. or B.) It was unoptimized EVEN IN THE BETA STAGE. I don't know about you, but im leaning toward the latter. but then again... option A genuinely might be more likely to happen than i think

Ok

Enough mindless ranting, let's get back to the matter at hand, the lagspikes. There are a few things that i think can work. These are not in order and just popped up in my head as i was typing, hell some of them even go hand in hand.

1.) Have you tried getting external help from someone who knows about this problem?.. if its even that common to begin with

2.) Sometimes google can help, there might be specific things that can cause them to happen (im not saying what because i don't know jack shit lmao)

3.) Maybe more alternate programs can help (I forgot what they were called, and im too lazy to go back and grab the name of it) You said yourself that they should theoretically reduce lag, so why not add more... if that's even possible. I don't know how exactly to put it, but i think maybe you understand what im trying to say

4.) just try experimenting. divide the maps up into smaller sections, maybe group them together. you can reduce the number, increase it... just toy around a bit, you might find something that works

5.) try optimizing the code. this game is kinda old, and you have gotten more experience with this, no matter how minuscule (pulled out the dictionary for that word lol). just try going back to beginning and just refine things.

 

And now it's time for my personal thoughts on it, and a potential solution of my own!!!(don't take my word for it tho, im just speculating)

earlier i said that it was doing the same lagspikes in the beta version, not the best baseline because PC quality, but it's still something to go on. I should elaborate why im still using it for data. The lagspike issue was the only thing wrong. there werent any longer loading times, and the gameplay was still smooth. i also know that many things have been added since then.

that's when it hit me

a lot of stuff has been added, and the lagspikes were still at the same rate. It made me realize that it might be caused because of an early on mistake in the game, assuming you still have the same base game in it, and only added onto it. HOWEVER, if you just added things onto the beta itself... that narrows things down A LOT. If this is true, then you should look at the base game and work things out from there. How exactly you do it... that part is beyond me.

i also have an idea on how to narrow it down even further. If you have any previous versions of the game, try booting them up and see if there is a version where it starts/stops. I'd understand if you don't have any other versions because storage does have a limit. But if i WERE a game designer/developer/whatever the fuck else you wanna call it... i would always have backups at every important part so i can pinpoint as best i can where something goes wrong. Maybe you could keep that in mind for future reference.

 

wow, i can't believe i sat down and typed for at least an hour straight. well, at least i finally got that all down. i know im still kinda waiting on certain things to resolve... *cough* *cough* softlock fixes *ahem*, but this is something that is seriously an issue for the game. 

i wonder how people actually deal with this type of shit, managing bugs and balancing i mean. thats gotta give them at least a headache or 7

oh yeah, i gotta wrap up this novel

uh...

...

Rpgmaker isssssss uh.... pffffffff- Bullshit...

yeah...

i guess that works as an outro

Talking to the librarian should immediately make the quest appear at the board in the embassy; give it another look (the task's name is Helpless, should be in purple or golden font)

I've checked, and checked again, and still nothing. Any idea? I uploaded my save if that helps.

Don't think that place is accessible at the moment.

Then what can I do? I finished all quests including the one where you get the records room key and finished the medals puzzle. So my next mission was going to Goroma shrine, then the priest was next to the mountain so I guess I have to climb it, so I did and ive explored every corner of it. Nothing to do

kill the pulunpas to the south of southern castle town

Yeah, I already got that taken care of. geez, that sidequest had way too much grinding for my tastes.

In case anyone runs in to the same problem in the catacombs- For some reason after interacting with the gate and leaving it didn't save, could have been my error, but after interacting with the gate again it allowed me to interact with the switches
