I stopped playing this game 5 month ago in hope they gonna fix the the black flickering effect..
I cant play with my ranger. My crit damage gives me hardcore blackflashes and if I play in a party I get one flicker per second.
Pls mods respond to this and give an option to disable this. 
Here's a video how my game looks when someone hits a monster https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NXFypkrlEjk
Its a very hard to play and I cant play longer than 20 minutes.. Please fix this, its a problem for many many players.

Well one more month give or take, and it will be a full year from when a admin actually ACKNOWLEDGED that this was an issue(Not just seen it, or had it reported, but actually STATED they know about it and plan to fix it)

 

So.. a year... for something this easy to fix? WTF?

 

This is something that can very easily be a health issue(I know it is for me, being that only a few minutes of this flashing gives me a nightmare of a headache)

 

Say anything about caring for your customers/product??

almost a full year since an admin has actually acknowledged that this is an issue?

BUMP

 

The flickering is particulary eye exhausting when doing boss fields, at ig night they flash like a stroboscope and burn all eyes, maybe better with all graphic effects on low but still... not a solution.

A solution please !

IMO (And im sure many will agree) its an effect that is simply NOT needed and does NOTHING to 'build immersion' into the game. It actually takes away some(not even considering the fact its like staring at a strobe light)

I found a setting, which disables the flickering from party members. Playing on german, so hope you can figure out which setting it is on english.

Just disable the setting I show on the picture. But it only disables party member crit effects. (Still better than nothing <3)

This may not be THE solution everyone needs, but it is a great little workaround to at least help mitigate the issue a little.

You're awesome!

I Just checked mine, and that was already unchecked. Checking it made it worse. LOL

@AtmaDarkwolf

Try rechecking it. Mine was uncheched too and I got the effects. Then I checked and unchecked, after this it worked.
I think its because I unchecked it a long while ago and they patched it in this time, so it need to be re-unchecked.

Please have an option to remove all flickering from monsters when they are hit. Really breaks the immersion and visuals of the game as well as causes eye strain.

Started noticing this today in Sausans. I literally feel like puking after grinding in a group for about 30 mins. I managed to turn it off for other players, but I cant turn it off for my own crits which makes me sick.

I was able to turn off the effect for others by checking, applying, then unchecking the "Party Member Hit Type Display" box under Settings>Game>Character Outline/Silhouette Options... but it still does it for all of my hits...

Thought I would share something since I was having a huge problem with this. I swapped out monitors to the Asus PG279Q monitor and this has helped a lot. If you have light sensitivity issues and this flickering gives you a headache, I actually do suggest it even though the price tag is high.

Still a thing, defiantly, some classes cause it more than others(Still unsure if skill or class related) and when it gets bad, its BAD.

 

Had a guy who claimed to be GM say it was 'forced because of the code, where as the flashing was how your client recognizes hit boxing' which I think was a pure BS illogical reason for it (Since if, for whatever illogical reason your client used flashes of light to determine if a hit or miss was the result of an attack instead of the norm, why use flashing white light and not invisible light?)

 

Anyways. Yes. GM's STILL AN ISSUE. PLEASE FIX.

 

U do know what a 'deal breaker' is right? Shit like this (Esp where it causes REAL HEALTH ISSUES. PLEASE read that again. REAL. HEALTH. ISSUES!) will chase people from your game.

I started grinding on Sorc and its gotten even worse now, because not only are there the black flashes from critical effects but (when Violation is off cooldown), white flashes from the counter attack implemented in Violation.

This shit gets on your nerves really, really fast.

yes. you can disable some of the 'other's effects' and your game will look sorta like ass, but it STILL does not solve this issue.


I am sorta (honestly, very much not just sorta) annoyed that the dev's have SEEN, ACKNOWLEDGED, and RESPONDED MULTIPLE TIMES about this but have DONE JACK SHIT about it. And its REALLY SUCH AN EASY FIX CODING WISE.

 

I mean ffs GET ON IT. Its likely only a single line of code disabling this junk.
