I don't even see it. What am I supposed to see??

You may be legally blind, you should see an eye doctor.

If you can see him that is.

There's a setting in the game that turns the flickering off. I was lvleing with a witch the other day and the flickering was DRIVING ME MAD, so I messed around with the settings and there is in fact a way to turn it completely off.

 

I forget which setting it is, but it might also disable screen shaking (a massive annoyance that I am so glad can be turned off)

There is a setting which completely turns off the "Critical", "Back attack", "Down attack" etc. notifications, just turn them off,

Emphasis mine. Yes, you can turn off the notifications (ie, the text).

You cannot turn off the black flickering at the edge of the screen.

It's not bad youtube quality being the cause of that in the original post, it's the actual goddamned game.

There has to me some fix already in game as I've never noticed this. I've it on max setting with most of the combat effects set to 0.

I noticed this for the first time tonight, it was also the first time I've grouped up in a very long while so I wonder if that had something to do with it. I get sick because of it and had to stop for a bit.

I've recommended this game to friends who quit before spending a single hour due to this.

It's absolutely sad that I saw these threads a year ago and I still see them

Why the heck has this not been fixed yet? I recall someone informing Jouska in a thread and he said he'd look into it, and nothing came out of it I guess. How the heck is this allowed to persist?

Signed.

This effect is abysmal, not sure how something like this past their art director, surely one would think constantly pulsing the peripheral vision of players would be distracting.

If you mostly solo it's ignorable on some classes, but the second you get into a group with someone like a ranger - it's instantly noticeable.

My wife actually stopped playing the game months ago for this reason alone. Long before that she had to stop playing with me completely (she is Valkyrie, I am Ranger) as the issue is a lot worse since it flashes her screen every time either one of us gets a critical hit. No amount of tweaking game settings will get rid of this effect... So she stopped playing and stopped buying pearls.

There's literally no reason to have the black flickering. It makes parties much more annoying due to this too. 

U can completely turn off the effect from parties. This got added some patches ago. Kappa

I stopped grinding too for 2 months until the party one got fixed. You can turn it off in the options. It's a bit tricky. I would look it up if I wasn't in vacation.

Did the meaning of Kappa change overnight?

Either way, no, you can't turn it off.

Used kappa wrong, thought it means something else. Sorry its my third language.

 

If you can't find the option it's your problem. I play without this effect since the patch and my eyes stopped bleeding while in party

I know what they'll do about it and how they'll "fix" it:

Add more blur and god rays. Can we do bets on that? :D

I do not have this effect? Is it only on very high? Or have I turned it off somehow? Cause remember Sorc was a pain to group with due to this.

That's why I stopped playing. Developers do not care, they're too busy creating new costumes. And because they have bad servers.

They need to put an on/off option.

People who are seriously grinding dont want flashy effects.. we just want to get kills and combos, not the whole screen flashing.

Try find a way to fix this.

And anyone saying "i fixed it".. either say what you did or dont bother commenting.

Salty much?

You may be certifiably mentally challenged if you think that I'd be legally blind. I mean obviously I could have been using a text-to-speech software to read out your negative comment but playing the game would be certainly a challenge that way.

Maybe you should think before you emit all that bullshit :)
