Hey guys

Following the latest release of the new games, who's noticing, particularly on the Video Pokers, that graphic animations are choppy, kinda stuttering along?

Its broke innit?

WinXP, PIII - happens here.

Yep, definitely broked!! Although I did hit a four of a kind on double bonus, so they can leave it broked as far as I'm concerned ;) Like you say, choppy and "flicky" graphics.

A far greater catastrophe is what they've done to Spring Break!! :eek: :eek: :eek:

I've checked this at three different casinos and it's the same at them all... I reckon all the programmers are spending too long staring at the Mermaids norks and took their eye off the ball.

Yep, there seems to be some problems. Some of the 3 reels slots are absolutely painful to watch :eek: . The only place I played at that doesn't have the problem is Vegas Slot - but then as of yesterday, they didn't have the new games.

In webmaster circles, everyone refers to the occasional major Google algorythym updates by names - like the "Florida" update or the "Allegra" update, which is when major changes happen and things go pear-shaped on rankings for a lot of people.

Maybe we'll come to look back at the "Lara" update and the "Mermaid" update one day with similarly fond memories :)

:D

i've had a few problems on the slots at Maple and 7 sultans. some games play very slow, cpu is constantly over 90% usage, and yesterday playing tomb raider every time a win came in the software completely closed down.

and i can't win a thing on Mermaid

Programmer thinking

Don't you wonder sometimes if they think that if they make the old favorites so horrible to look at, then you will try the new games? You can bet somewhere some programmer thought the backgrounds were boring and livened them up with that "lovely" green color. UGH!

I am also in agreement about the multi-hand video poker. Take back the lightning speed and let us see what is happening with the cards.

I think they have some sort of 'busy' loop in there, I find that it stays on 100% even if sitting in the lobby doing nothing (with a 2.8ghz p4). Every time I run MG software, the fan on my laptop kicks in, and stays on until I exit. That's just poor programming, I'm afraid.

The bright green colour was probably a chroma-key of some sort. I guess that it was supposed to be automatically replaced by some sort of background image or transparency, but for some reason that hasn't happened. Sometimes these things only happen on certain graphics cards, which might explain why it got past testing.

Quick question to those of you experiencing these difficulties, which are proving hard to replicate I'm told.

Do any of you play on laptops?

Not me - Pentium 3 tower PC with XP :)

It's possible that the problems have to do with the latest service pack for Windows XP - which has caused Microgaming Flash casinos to be inaccessible. Likely an Active X problem - which would also affect the download casinos.

I have noticed, however, that on my notebook (XP) and my old computer with new LCD screen (Win2K) that the text is suddenly not as clear as it used to be - perhaps the entire display.

I do sometimes play on a laptop, but it's not just there where the problem is. Also, if it helps, I sometimes play under Windows 98 - where it looks exactly the same as in XP!... Definitely the software itself as opposed to the environment in my humble, non-techy opinion!

You said choppy... LOL... that's been happening for ages... and always been the case for me no matter what computer or O/S. I have been talking to them about this for quite some time now.

Are you seeing the greenies as well? It's apparently only the most recent updates for XP that are causing the problem with Flash...
