  1. That means your GPU (integrated) doesn't support GLSL features we use, you can do /skiptutorial in chat for now, we'll add an option to skip that stage of the tutorial.
  2. Unable able to use new launcher

    That message is as far as we can go figuring out the issue - something has to be blocking its updating, and it's the same server as the one you downloaded the installer from, so must be something blocking just the launcher. Try running it as administrator or adding it as an exception to the Windows Firewall? (administrator should bypass firewall anyway I think)
  3. Lots of null crashing recently

    They all seem to be the same, I've had it happen once on a 32-bit version. Does it happen more when you run multiple clients, or the system has generally high memory usage?
  4. This week we'll be introducing a new, native launcher for Wurm Online. As is the case every couple of years, due to certificate renewal, the current JNLPs and shortcuts are going to break this week, but now in addition to the JNLP, we are releasing native executable files for Windows and Linux, with a Mac version following later in the month. As previously mentioned, this gives you a way to just install the game like you do with any other application, and not worry about installing the correct version of Java and such - the launcher will now detect and download the version you need. Downloads available here: https://www.wurmonline.com/wurm-online-downloads/ If you have any issues installing it, disable your antivirus for the time it's installing - it's common that newly released applications get marked as false positives and it should fix itself in a couple days. If you prefer to keep using JNLPs for now (we'll be removing them once we're sure the launcher works well, and the Mac builds are done), you need to clear the Java cache and download new JNLPs - you can find it in the link above. How to clear your Java cache:
  5. Texture ripping with the new launcher.

    Does this happen on windowed mode too, or only fullscreen?
  6. WSA: Wurm Online Launcher changes

    New installer out now, should not restart by itself anymore and has a couple other issues fixed. It's just about 200mb total the launcher will take so not too bad, but it works when I install it on any drive. Can you try again with the updated installer (download it from the website)? Might've fixed itself with some other fixes.
  7. Mouse grab issue

    Can you make a video of it? I'm trying to do exactly that and it doesn't happen. I've got no way of reproducing this.
  8. WSA: Wurm Online Launcher changes

    Can you list what files/directories are there in the directory the .exe has installed? You can get there by right-clicking the shortcut and selecting "Open file location". Will be fixed with the launcher update too.
  9. WSA: Wurm Online Launcher changes

    Make sure the directory and the executable itself has read/write/executable permissions all set, I just tried it on a fresh install of Gentoo and it worked fine. Apologies for the forced restart, it didn't happen during testing (and still doesn't happen on a fresh Windows install when I try it), but it should be fixed with a launcher update coming out soon, possibly today.
  10. mac update

    You can still play via the JNLP, it's on the bottom of the download page. You might need to clear your Java cache before doing that - instructions are in this post
  11. WSA: Wurm Online Launcher changes

    https://superuser.com/questions/947070/how-can-i-hide-taskbar-labels-in-windows-10-without-combining-icons The most common one is 64-bit Windows so you can just try that. You can also go into the Control Panel, System Information, and it'll say what -bit you need, but it's most likely 64.
  12. Yes, the client does use overall more memory than 3 years ago, we've had plenty of changes in that time, 4.0 client, new renderer(s), and others. While definitely possible to do, it's not a priority right now to decrease that usage, it's decent enough with good settings. I just got confused with the commited memory thing, since there's no chance the client itself would use that much.
  13. That's normal, it's nothing we can affect - that doesn't mean it's using 4gb of ram, as some of that is the page file, as some will be reduced when the system actually needs the memory. Every process does the same thing:
  14. I don't know what that is, the actual memory commited to the process is shown in the processes tab of the Task Manager: That's all the process takes, no idea what Windows commits other than that, but it's not on the client.
  15. Low mem is commiting 4gb? It has a hard set limit of 1gb for heap, but other memory types shouldn't have that much commited, they should take only what they need.
  16. The new launcher that went live today has a low memory version of the preview client, try it out - it'll make a shortcut named "choose client" where you can pick the lowmem version.
  17. WSA: Wurm Online Launcher changes

    It's not 2 copies, the launcher is installed in a separate directory from the client data (but you can point it to the same place and it should work). You can remove the old shortcuts by clearing the Java cache as mentioned in the first post.
  18. WSA: Wurm Online Launcher changes

    Yes, you can uninstall the old shortcuts. We'll have a .deb installator up soon which will create the shortcuts, have to make your own for now.
  19. WSA: Wurm Online Launcher changes

    Not any way specific to the client, but you can disable stacking on the Windows taskbar in general. https://www.lifewire.com/how-to-disable-taskbar-button-grouping-2626110 Extract it anywhere, run the launcher inside.
  20. WSA: Wurm Online Launcher changes

    It's out now! The post has been updated with a link, please give it a try. If you need to use the JNLPs still, you need to clear your Java cache and download the jnlp again. Instructions on how to clear Java cache:
  21. WSA: Wurm Online Launcher changes

    Yes, the new installer can make an additional shortcut in which you can choose the client you want to run - so you run the test client from the new executable. The update will happen after server shutdown just so it doesn't break on anyone during actual gameplay.
  22. WSA: Wurm Online Launcher changes

    No, that's the part with new JNLPs - Mac users can still use those to play in the meantime.
  23. WSA: Wurm Online Launcher changes

    Yes, the launcher (or rather, the wrapper) will be installed in a separate directory from the Wurm user files, nothing changes about those.
  24. New water graphics on Mac

    We're replacing legacy components of the game every update, so that we can use the OpenGL 3.3+ Core profile on Mac, but it might have to wait until the new UI, as the current UI is very legacy in general. It shouldn't be far off though. Bootcamp should work fine with Wurm, no idea about the other ones.
  25. Valrei International. 087

    Don't worry, Linux and Mac are getting native launchers as well - you won't have to bother with installing Java and all anymore there too.
