I admit, I'm not so up on computer tech, so what is ping, and how does it relate to why my chars are running so choppy? I have tried lowering my graphics settings to no avail. This...lag or whatever affects my chars on BoB and 7 Dragons.

"In multiplayer online video games, ping refers to the network latency
between a player's computer, called a client, and the game server (or
another client). This could be reported quantitatively as an averaged
time in milliseconds, or qualitatively as low ping or high ping" -- Wikipedia

In other words, it is a measure of how fast your connection is, the lower the number is, if you are given a number, the better. Sometimes its even color-coded.

If your ping is high, you might want to look into getting a better connection.

Out of curiosity, what is your ping time? You want it to be under 100 if possible. You can live with 150, but higher than that and performance is affected pretty seriously.

Usually on 7 Dragons ping is around 106
BoB is generally about the same but a few points lower.

If I click back and forth a few times, it seems to lower the number, then I log on when I get the lowest one.

I have a question about 7 Dragons: I bought a Golden Circlet which is supposed to grant immunity to mind affecting spells (among other things) for almost 30K GP, when I bought it, the immunity feature now is not in the item description. I need that!

Also, I qualify for Red Dragon Disciple, but I can't take it at 21st level?
I de-leveled and took a Sorcerer class to meet the requirements, but when I attained 21st Lvl, I could only choose one of the three classes that I already am.

*is pissed*

I wanted the 10 levels as RDD and then Weapons Master to complete my 40 levels.

Umm . . . it doesn't matter what the ping is when you log in, it is just there to give you an idea of what you connection is like. Also, if you already had three classes . . . thats the limit in NWN, NWN2 is the one that lets you take 4.

Yeah, I found that out and dropped the sorcerer class, I'll get the feats and go Weapons master with this char. The next one I'll try rog/sor/RDD.

Anyone remember Tale of Seven Dragons?
I need some help.

There is a door in the Ice Palace in the room where you kill the Frost Dragon and Eldest water elemental,
I killed 'em both but can't open the door, why? (yes, I have the frost talisman in my possession)

I killed Lars and found my way to the Undead Dragon...three times.
Three times this cheating bastard dragon killed me right near the end of its miserable life and while i had a potion of clarity in me as well.
I had it dead, I was so buffed up it wasn't even funny, most of my HP, and a spell mantle on.
All three times it killed me when I had it almost dead. It is a very expensive run as well.

A hafling told me that in the Bottomless Pit there would be a key to the Secret Room in Dreamers Bay.
I killed both Crystal Golems in the Bottomless Pit and got the Oasis Crystal, no key found. (I have tried the door to the secret room after I got the frost talisman and oasis crystal, it's still locked). Could it be the gold golems?

Is the gold dragon inside Dormilia Castle one of the seven?
Is the dragon named "Seven" the final dragon?
I'm assuming there are dragons to kill that are not among the seven, yes?

It is far easier to run this server alone than BoB

On the topic of Ping, I often have my ping at around 300 and that seems alright, it goes from 150-300 at the best times.

However, lately it seems to have gone upwards in a painful way.

Ever tried hunting when you log on to see 2000 ping?

Now that's good fun.

even when ping is good, when I'm in a party or just in combat, the movement is twitchy, almost like a strobe light is on without the blackness

Tale of Seven Dragons is locking up on me while I am in combat with major bosses, this hasn't happened before.
Any ideas?
