test/post. Is it really that difficult to render just *all* images?


its impossible to render all portraits at the same time as redering is quite resource hungry

Please see THIS post from tux about it

What exactly is "a while longer"? Does it manage 2 or even 3 Exclamation per day? RazzWink


rendering process runs 23/7 ... at 2 portraits a second, that's about 82800 portraits rendered a day. Need to render about 600k portraits, so roughly a weeks worth of "catching up"


Considering that was a month ago that means about 9 months worth of portraits to render....

Rolling Eyesshould have just not have had portraits in the first place if this were to happen (the whines and the lack of rendering new ones), but w/e. Hate the whiners more whining so hard about a feature that's so superficial.

Whine about something worthy for once, like the font? Or say the suicide-gankers? Or maybe the New Player Experience SP boost (some people are still mad about that)?

I mean, cmon its just a stupid forum portait!Rolling Eyes

I don't know what type of maths you do (maybe base 5 or something :) ) but to be, 600,000 divided by 82800 = 7.2 days of work. something he said when he wrote "so roughly a weeks worth of "catching up"".

Now that was several weeks ago.

Where is my portrait?

Yes just like that guy joked that he'd get fired if it wasn't done before christmas. Or that tux said it's only a week away, a month ago.

I've been playing for over a year and this alt (now my main) was made in May 06. Since the DOB of my character, all I have ever heard from CCP is that they know what the problem is and it will be fixed shortly.

Oh, I'm sure it's not a conspiracy or that they are outright lying to us - that would just be silly - I know it's probably been pushed back and back because it's not all that important - but I'd really like a straight forward deadline. If it's going to be another 6 months so be it - say so. If the process has already started, then we should all be finished and rendered by... 11th January, yes?

ROFL. I am now almost half a year old and still I hear CCP saying "rendering takes time",
"your portrait will be updated very very soon", blah blah blah. Now I read that you have to
post on the forums to get your picture updated? What?

As a customer I am not satisfied with this kind of answer. This is a MMORPG isn't it, and is
your character face - even if it is an ugly achura one - an important part of your character?

@CCP: A portrait is not that important for me, but from a business stand of view ****ing of customers is not smart.

When the CCP employees are on here making jokes about it you can be pretty sure it's never going to happen.

I don't think it's really the portrait, I think it's the fact that anything you say as a "!" is completely disregarded by the rest of the community because you are OBVIOUSLY a noob/alt, and makes posting pointless in the first place. :)

To me it's more about meaning what you say, and credibility.

In the nicest way possible, there isn't much that's more frustrating (forum-wise) than an off-the-cuff dev post in a thread where people have been wondering why devs aren't giving us any useful info.

We get all excited by the gold bars and then ... oh Sad

[AWSOME IDEA ALERT!!!]

Make rendering the character portrait an option on the Forums-Settings page.
Why?
- People who are interested in getting their portrait displayed can take care of queing up the job themselves.
- The portrait rendering machine won't be bogged down with litterally thousands of portraits we'll never see anyway.

[/AWSOME IDEA ALERT!!!]

The only downside to that is we'd still be answering a bunch of "why can't I see mah face? lol" posts.

Anyway, considering the BEEELYONS of alts and trial accounts that whizz through EVE space, rendering each and every one of them seems like a really crazy approach.

I wonder how the portraits are rendered. Everywhere I see the same old "!", and it's (obviously) not done in alphabetical order.

Maybe they're just not rendering at all, and that's just something they say to make us optimistic for a short while?

The real bugger is that, out of all those 10's of thousands of portraits to be rendered, only about 1% of them are ever likely to post on the forums. So it'll be a long old while before the rendering actually reaches someone who might notice Razz
