    I kinda love the lack of combat animations. Makes me feel like Nukem is following me around, quietly PBAE stunning everything I pull.

    Now if only I could turn off my first-person melee animations!

    Perhaps add a client side ini component for this feature if anyone wants to use it while leaving the filter options as they were?

    To switch all models to stick figures like was possible on live for a while, for lag reasons. Literally no lag with that on.

    Pretty sure I could enable stick figures.

    For some backstory, Stick Figures were introduced into the live EQClient file as an April Fools joke for 1 day on April 1st I think in 2007 or something? After they reset it, they left the ability to modify your file manually to add them back in if you so choose.

    I did this for years afterwards, required a dll swap after patching. That is until one day they broke it.

    Stick figures are cool, they have them on PEQ:TGC, sometimes it helps some players with lag during big raids. I still would prefer the normal animations working without having other hits on, but ultimately that is your decision and I will learn to adpat.

    Could you make the red lines strictly perpendicular, some with green ink and some with transparent?

    Not having the attack animations made this unplayable for me, so I used the Darchon fix of making a minimized window to filter other hits/misses. This ruins my UI setup/aesthetic and triggers my OCD, but it's better than the alternative. How far are we going to stray from AK?

    I was looking at changing it back. I will think about it a bit longer now.

    I noticed a difference last night on our raid, but attack animations don't really bother me since I am mostly looking at a wall for majority of the raid on three screens.

    Instead of stick figures I would love it if the shaman epic click dot movement spasm thing was enabled for every type of spell

    I'm trying to work out how you have any lag in 2020? Even running three toons in a raid on my laptop gives zero lag at all.

    my laptop doesn't have a dedicated GPU and lags if i'm on a raid with others hits and logs on all 3 chars. Or if i'm just playing normally with my bazaar mule 4th box running in the background. Spell effects and luclin models have to be off too or i can't raid smoothly.

    I use Luclin models (I don't like old models) and have reasonably fast PCs (current Athlons with Radeon RTX2060/2070 GPUs) and I still get enough slowdown that i don't like playing more than one character on a raid. I even dropped the resolution to 1600 x 1200 and it didn't help.

    Re: the patch. I have massive respect for the devs and I am grateful for all the good work they do. But I would like to see the patch reversed re: animations.

    Can anyone remember when you could log in as a monster and attack other players?
    You were placed as a random mob in a random zone
