Star Trek Online: Call of Valor

A Star Trek Online Fan-fiction.

Kicking myself

Ok, for the last several weeks, I’ve been suffering MASSIVE lag with STO, and been unable to account for it. I’ve been getting more and more pissed off because I can surf fine, but playing STO is just not possible. I got so pissed off that I admit I was bitching angrilly on the official boards, and it seems I got a 24h ban, but I haven’t received any PMs from a mod telling me why I can’t post right now.

This morning I figured out what it was and am proceeding to kick myself for my own stupidity.

Basically, my router is a POS and is what has been causing all my connection issues. So until I can buy a new one, I have to basically connect directly to the modem to play, so that means coordinating times with mom.

On a much more positive note, I’ve figured out how to get the facing-shield-ring graphics to hide! Check out these uber-sweet screenshots:

This is so awesome that I’m pretty much speechless ^_^

EDIT: And apparently they DO have an in-game setting for this; in the “Options” menu, on the “Basics” tab there’s an option for “Enable Directional Shield FX”. Turning this to ‘off’ apparently turns off the shields graphic.

Also, here’s some /commands for taking screenshots:

/screenshot

when you type it in you’ll see a few different options for how highly detailed you want the screenshot ad if you want it to show the UI.

/screenshot_jpeg——to get a Jpeg image
/screenshot_ui——–to show the ui
/screenshot_ui_jpeg—to get a jpeg with the ui
/screenshot_depth—–for a very high quality image

There may be more, but that’s more than enough for right now.
