#1 [en] 

I recently installed ryzom on a ubuntu 14.04 32 bit OS. havent had problems till now when i started using my alt account.

I noticed lots of graphic lag and slow performance. the thing is that i never had such problems on windows (except on win 10, but that's another story)

given those obvious issues i took a look at the system monitor and found that only running ryzom i was using all 6 cores at 90-99% when ryzom shouldnt be using more than 3 at that capacity , what's worse is that using those 6 cores at that lvl should give me a great performance instead of the choppy gameplay i was having. RAM usage seems normal for 2 accs at 2.2 gb without using swap

then i sttopped the alt account and ryzom is still using over 90% in all cores with a regular performance. is there any way to solve this, is it a hardware/linux issue? i'd appreciate some help.

specs:

motherboard: MSI 970a-g46
chipset: AMD 6350 4200hz
GPU: Sapphire AMD R9 290x 2gb
RAM: 3 X kingston Hyperx 4gb 1866hz
power supply: corsair 750W

Under linux, 100% CPU usage means 1 core.

To launch second ryzom in separate core, you need to use taskset utility.

To run ryzom on first core, you would launch it as
taskset -c 0 /opt/ryzom/ryzom_client

second core would be
taskset -c 1 /opt/ryzom/ryzom_client

Just curious why would you use a 32-bit OS on such a good processor .. and a system with 12 gb of ram.

well simple... after installing every package and workaround possible to play ryzom on a 64bit distro and failing with every trick in the book i decided to use a 32bit distro to avoid the limitations

I never had any issues playing Ryzom on 64bit Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. Installed directly from the software center.

I don't want to be the one

same here, but this time the game wasnt even starting, there's another thread about this issue and i got a few ideas for a workaround there, so far all known fixes weren't able to make ruyzom work on the 64bit version. but this problem isnt new and it also happened on the old 64bit distro i had (i did a full format and had to reinstall everything).

this performance issue were the same in ubuntu 13.04 64 bit, so i take it is a problem between my chipset and linux regardless of architecture. actually i 've always preferred the linux client, but i'm not going to overuse my chipset for a game that shouldnt use that capacity. hence why im asking for some help.

to be honest ryzom hasnt had a single optimization upgrade in years so it's no wonder this problems appear from time to time

You missed my post so here is a quick version. If you run multiple clients, then you must ensure they run in separate cores. By default ryzom locks itself into last core and multiple client all share that single code.

already tried it, but it's not locating a cfg which is in the folder and finally the thread ends with some bogus about not driver for the nel3d... honestly ive never run any game who is so plagued with mistakes and needing this many workarounds just to work... though the problem might be in the way the FX 6300 works as it takes uses cores in blocks of two (even the thread i get in the solution you gave me suggests that linux is taking the 6 cores as 3)

when that happens, you need to run ryzom in the folder it's installed in. In linux its usually $HOME/.ryzom if you ussed debs.

I run the client in linux mint 17 which is 14.04 based. At first I had terrible performance, then I found that the standard mesa driver for the intel GPU was not hardware accelerated. When I installed the intel graphics driver all magically fixed itself.

Do you have the correct driver for your graphics?

#11 [en] 

Several months ago, I had a crashing issue. Someone suggested I check my memory. So I did. Some of my memory was bad, so I removed the approxamatly half of my memory, and it works fine, now.

(My memory is now down to 8GB, whis is of no concern to me, as far as I know, I have never dipped into my swap partition)

So.... check your memory for bad "pieces", you can either remove the offending memory or the kernel can "ignore" the bad memory.

im using the fglrx-update ones, the non propietary ones dont work (actually they can render most of the game except water, OP items and yelk backs)... guess i could try with the fresh version from the amd website,
