I hate getting long flights----EVERY time I have a decent flight---It gets very jerky and ALL dillos following come in extremely jerky and many are unhittable---some even show up in the middle of the screen---I have no problem with runs up to about 3500 or so, but the ones that go over 4500 seem to do something to the games performance---I had one game where I had 20 dillos left and missed or fouled almost all of them~~ the ones I managed to hit went less than 500M
Does this happen to anyone else? Or is it my flash player or what???

larkspar,I've never hit one of the little Twisted Evil things that far.
I think I did manage to hit one over 2500 M this morning as I played.
I hope someone has an answer for you.
Good luck...and...happy whackin' Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation

I haven't had the same lag issue that I have seen a few others post about.
I have had some lag but nothing too severe... and only when I get a good hit with good distance.
When I have experienced lag it hasn't carried over or affected the following armadillos.

If you have a lot of lag, you could try:

ZOOMING OUT
Even if you play on full screen try setting your game window to a smaller display size.

CLOSE ALL OTHER TABS
Close all other tabs especially if they are pages that require flash or real time updates.

Use AdBlock
Enough said.



Other than those suggestions I think it would be a good idea for people to search "online video game Lag".
Do a little reading, find out the causes of it, and troubleshoot your own individual issues.


It's really not hard to research it... well, unless you're Homer Simpson ... pssst, you're NOT Homer Simpson.

Mine was 'lagging' this morning.
I didn't have any other programs running (tabs open),
and we all know that the distance wasn't my problem Smile Smile
I don't run any ad blocks because my computer guru said not to Smile Smile
I've only had the 'lagging' to happen twice (that I can remember).
It's not a real big issue since it doesn't happen often.
I would really rather know why my fan seems to get louder and louder
the more games of SA that I play.
It is the only game that I have noticed it happening on.
I don't guess it will hurt anything (I hope not), I'm just curious about it.

I dont play on full-screen and the ads are not a problem anymore---sometimes I have two windows open but that doesnt cause this problem---I guess the trouble really starts when the long flight is very fast with a lot of bursting through crates and really flyin---if the long flight goes a little more slowly the problem doesnt occur, or at least hasnt with flights up to 6000. The problem with that, is trying to get rufus to chill a little--hehehe

I still haven't figured out why the fan speeds up and gets louder when I play SA.
It is still the only game that I play that I have noticed it doing it on.

I don't know if GDG will help with the lag issue because it's not really their problem (much like the lost progress issue).
There are many reasons for lag but most of them are not related to the host site... altho there are a few possible causes that are site related.
Because the issue doesn't affect everyone playing, it seems much less likely to be a site related issue (IMO).
After a few days of not seeing a response from GDG (to this thread) I posted a few tips.
I don't know if my Homer Simpson pic was a bad idea... maybe it could have be taken wrong.
I thought it was a funny pic because I think WE ALL feel that way when we have to dive in and unravel these issues.
I thought people might want to search for, and read about lag because it is one of those issues that doesn't have a standard fix.
Everyone who has posted about lag (here in the forums and out there on the board) could be experiencing it for multiple reasons...

Sookie, when I posted 'lag'
I probably should have said 'slow'.
I think that would be a better description of what the dillos were doing.
It seemed to take forever for them to do their run.
It's not happening as often now...I hope it will stay that way Smile Smile

Hey ConnieLea
I'm glad you thought it was cute Very Happy
I feel like that (Homer) a LOT when I start trying to figure out some new pc related thing.
When I said: "It's really not hard to research it... well, unless you're Homer Simpson" ...
I should have been a little more specific about why it isn't hard instead of just posting a silly pic.
I meant that it's not hard because there is so much info available about Lag that it's not hard to find what you're looking for.
I had some serious lag earlier today while I was playing a really good game (1 of my hits went 20,452!).
My game slowed down to a crawl after that long hit and it took almost 40 minutes to finish the game once the lag started. Sad
I'm glad it has eased up for you and hopefully whatever was going on inside your pc has worked itself out!!!
I finished my upgrades today and I am so excited to be done that I'm about to go to bed lololol (seriously, that was a lot of WORK!).
See ya later ConnieLea! Smile

OMG Exclamation Exclamation If you have got all of yours' up to 5 stars
you have been seriously working that game Exclamation Exclamation
Here are my stats on what I have...
2 on Max,Jane,Rufus,Iggy,Recruitment and Blinged out. (6)
3 on Power,Destructive Force and Teamwork. (3)
4 on Rings. (1)
6+3+1=10......I think that's where I'm at Smile Smile
I think my next move will be to go for 4 on Power and Destruction.
After that work up to 3 stars on everything that only has 2.
Then work on getting them all to 4 stars so that I only like 1 more.
I haven't decided how I'll go about doing the 5 stars for everything.
As costly as they are I'm wondering
if I'll ever get to 5 on all of them Smile Smile
You've hit some awesome scores, Gal, keep it up.
OH YEAH...good luck this coming week...we'll be thinking about you.
