Battle animations?

Baldrick (GB1)Baldrick (GB1) Posts: 4,948
I may be jumping the gun here, but the new "battle animations" show no detail whatsoever and cause lag.

I've had a look so see if it's possible to switch them off but as yet I can find no option to do this.

Can we please have this included in the turn animations off option?

I've looked at three battle reports and I'm bored with it already.

Sorry to be so negative, but I see no benefit to having something that slows the game yet gives nothing in return.

    You beat me too it Baldrick...

    I've already posted this on the Update: Discussion thread, there should definitely be an option to have the old style reports since the new ones are terrible; much less easy to read and creating awful amounts of lag, something I've never had a real problem with before.

    What a complete waste of time.

    Totally agree.

    Now you have to look to the bottom of the screen on the first (lagging) page, then back up again.

    I must say, it does look quite good, but if you're going to change something at least make it ALL look the same. With a window that big, they could fit the entire report onto one page instead of showing it wave by wave. That wold be much better for the game.

    Just popped in to make pretty much the same post; couldn't agree more.
    I mean, I quite like the style but the animation is fairly substandard and there is no actual improvement to the reports at all. Also, I can't see the animations keeping even the most easily entertained amused for long. I just find it hard to support an update that's purely aesthetic and causes lag but adds nothing to the game-play.
    As mentioned, at least give us the option of switching back to the old style of report.

    I imagine you will get bored of it very quickly, at which point you will realise (hopefully) how much better the old one was.

    IMO it was a waste of resources for GGE to make this battle screen. I want to turn it off, as it literally provides no purpose outside of bogging down the game. As if the lag wasn't bad enough already.

    i don't mind it really, since they fixed the extreme activity lag thing, it hasnt been affecting me at all, and this update made no difference. i agree there should be an option to turn it off for those that don't like it or is causing lag though. they could hav had a smaller animation screen and included more of the detailed part on the first screen, rather than having to open 3 windows to get a good look.

    1. Saw the battle animation for the first time "WOW ITS SO COOL GGS ARE AWESOME!
    2. "Yeah its a good battle report"
    3."Ok this is starting to get anoying..."
    4. "Why is my game lagging?"
    5. Oh its the boring animation

    Look i like the new animation but i agree to turn it off, one thing i am little dissapointed of is that GGs added this and its ok but i dont see why they dont add other things that makes it easier like buildings showing squares and such that people really want to be inplented

    I agree entirely.
    While I encourage, even appraise GGS, for the new addition they have provided in visual animations that has been asked for so long, it does provide a huge amount of lag with no info about the battle that you couldn't find some other way.
    Please add the option to remove it.

    Again, I'll say that I am dearly impressed by GGS's innovation however.

    these new reports are one of the worst things i have ever seen in my life. i dont even want to look at reports anymore because i hate it so much.

    what gave you the idea to make the numbers so small that you need a magnifying glass to see it?

    nobody cares about the animations. all it does is cause more lag.
    switch back to the old reports please.

    Read my answer to Baldrick that It's Better than nothing,I am still happy until now and of course the new more better and not cause lag(adobe flash player can repair it,I install the latest one) The old is very boring and I remember there are a post by someone to add animations(Maybe Dusan)

    And Baldrick,I agree that GGE must add some setting to it NOT DELETE IT,some players may like it,trust me
