yeah, I usually clicked people I wanted to be more aware of. so their portrait would be more of a visual hint that someone I was looking for turned up in my system. people I don't care about should stay anon ;P

I used unloaded avatars as a tool in the endless struggle to determine who was following me, and who was not.

Well I guess it's now harder for everybody, including my prey.

Agreed, I only clicked on the avatars of people I wanted to watch / track / know about.

I don't mind how it works now, loading every portrait. However, I would vote in favour of needing to manually load portraits again if it came down to a poll.

I used it for a quick way to check if I had the person checked already in the near past. But well I'm not really that worried about the current working way.

However I'm missing the capture option, or was it gone for longer?

It was always finicky before anyway, half the time ports would unload and mess everything up. At least now show info doesn't lag as much.

Local beeing less of an intel tool is not a bad thing, actually.

No more portrait capture, but now we load the happy face of any podpilot or agent we encounter
They really want us to lag.

I think a great idea is to make it an option in the settings on whether or not you allow all portraits to load when entering system

It actually bugs me when the avatars dont load or sometimes they do for people in my corp and other days they dont and I have to go thru clicking them all.

Well how much lag is it causing? I will probably get on later to test the bandwidth use of EVE as I login to Jita and compare it with some past bookmarks to see if it a large enough change to generate lag.

+1, it should be our choice if we a: want the extra bandwidth hit from downloading every stupid scammer in Jita local, or any other system you pass through and b: actually see them all anyway.

i also think there may be a difference between server lag (latency) and client lag (graphical)


but i know not of these things

Its not causing any server lag. If you read the dev blog you would know how it functions:

Quote:
This means that the client isn't loading graphic assets and running rendering code for characters in the background while you are flying in space, it will just fetch the character portraits via the internet as if you were browsing a web page. This also means that the client doesn't have to ask the server for characters appearances in order to render them, so we are freeing up server resources too. We also offload all the bandwidth to our Content Delivery Network (CDN) so that we aren't using up the link to Tranquility with requests for images - and as all requests for images go to our CDN it should be extremely fast wherever you are in the world.

wow look at you you've come a long way my friend

adding useful content to a thread, im a little choked up here i need a minute to recover




ok now that it has passed that pretty much rules out latency but poor me and my sorry computer still seem to be having issues when jumping into system(compared to before the pics would load)

so maybe this is accounted for by processing/gpu issues i am having on the client side? with loading all the pictures at once? im not a very techy person so i think we are in the perfect place to hash it out sanz trolling, oh, oops too late!


now we have come full circle. wouldnt it be great to choose not to load them at all? is that even a viable option? who knows but maybe we will find out!


hey look at that we are in the features and ideas section and someone suggested that in this here post.


i guess im not a completely worthless human being after all.

I liked it better that way too.. mainly because the un-rendered pics told me who I hadn't checked out in my system yet. Now that everyone is rendered I'm confused lol.

+1 For the option to switch it off to show avatars in local!!

I went into Jita yesterday and my computer froze for like 1 minute on all 3 clients...
