lightknight Posted November 7, 2011 Report Share Posted November 7, 2011 Okay, so I'm returning to the game after a hiatus and noticing a host of issues. I don't know if they're involved with the latest patch or a previous one, so I'll mention them all here. Issue 1: MEMORY. Academagia begins using about 450MB of RAM (a rather high amount, considering what the program does) but after playing the game and saving/loading several times, that number climbs steadily; after about an hour of play, it was using nearly 1 GB (!) of RAM. This cannot be right. Quitting and restarting the game (and ending the process in the task manager; see below) resolved the issue, but I'm certain you don't want your players to do that. It got so laggy after that time that the music would skip if I scrolled down even once and it took up to 10 seconds to register a click. This is on a Qosmio, one of the highest-end gaming systems on the planet. Is this a result of the "memory optimization" mentioned in the latest patch thread? Issue 2: When I close the game, the interface closes, but the game continues to consume resources; the music keeps playing in the background, the game hogs 500MB to 1 GB of RAM, and does not shut down unless I go into the task manager and end the process myself. Again, not good. Issue 3: I cannot help but think that there may be something wrong with the RNG. Creating a new character, I decided to spend an early weekend doing the "Run a Potentially Crippling Route" to raise my Fitness statistic. The game states that each time I do this, there is a 10% chance that the Fitness statistic will raise permanently. I tried it twice and then a rest; nothing. I did the same again the next day; nothing. I reloaded and tried this again (4 attempts per weekend); nothing. Again; nothing. 27 more times; nothing. Knowing that sometimes bad luck strikes, I began keeping a count. Drum roll, please. I TRIED 216 TIMES. No expansion. On a 10% chance. After this, going a bit berserk, I ordered my poor student to do NOTHING AT ALL but run a potentially crippling training route at every possible moment of his life for 2 months of school time. Nothing. My luck cannot possibly be that bad. It is stastically more or less impossible to roll a 10-sided die 200+ times and /never/ get a particular result. I even had a +2% standing bonus to all actions, so that should have been a 12% chance. Statistically, the vast majority of people will roll the desired result in 8 tries. I tried 216 times; lost an entire evening in the effort. How can this be? I left the game months ago, and feel very frustrated to return to it in this state. Are these known issues, or something else? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
