Lineage: Episode 11 Mac Slowdown Issues
9:14 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

Following the recent release of Chapter 11: Oren for the popular MMORPG Lineage: The Blood Pledge, Mac users reported massive slowdown problems during nighttime conditions or other similar events. One reader wrote in with his observations:

The Lineage Episode XI, Oren update is causing all kinds if fits for Mac users. Whenever playing during nighttime conditions or in caves, buildings, etc Mac users characters suffer extreme lag. It appears that Windows users don't have the problem. It also seems that Mac players on the test server identified the problem days before and NC ignored them.
A thread discussing the slowdown problems was also started at Lineage's forums.

Later on, the Lineage news page was updated with news of a Mac client fix that addressed the slowdown problem:

A fix has been implemented for players using the Macintosh client to correct movement during “nighttime” display. We will be publishing this fix at 4:00 PM CST today (July 18th.) If you are a Macintosh Client user, please completely close Lineage and then reconnect to receive the update.
Mac users have reported limited success with the patch, but apparently problems are still persisting for some users. Those interested in more information can find it at both Lineage's main site and its forums.
