Discussion Thread: Empire HTML5 Beta - Feedback & Bug Reports

    Google Chrome Version 70.0.3538.110 (Official Build) (64-bit)

    Scale is different to Java - can zoom in more but not zoom out as much.

    And agree with the earlier poster...even though its more zoomed as standard...very difficult to read screen, text looks blurry and some of the contrasts (e.g. time skips) are different and less legible

    On the upside, not a total loss on the screen front as apart from text, the contrast on the screen seems sharper

    The lag is the biggest issue - not huge on its own but get gears between most screens - would think a pop-up storm would end up in a lag that would be beyond the attention span of most millennials .....

  • ugh ... just signed in to the new version ... my castle is huge more than the page, tried shrinking some but in order to get the whole castle but it also shrunk all the boxes needed to play the game to a mini box I cannot get to.  I reset got them back but castle is too large for the screen ..... I will never be able to play and get what I need done like I use to. 

    I want my old version back until this is fixed

    My entire game is just all blurry and washed out even though my graphics settings are set to highest.
    Is this a bug/issue with the game or is this on my end? Anyone who knows a fix?

    No, i don't play on GB1.

    I'm pretty sure chat should not look like this. At least not when it is an active alliance with 60+ people playing daily and talking.

    Greetings everyone! 

    @PJH_ (GB1) thanks for your request and let me please clarify: 

    As mentioned in today's post (which also references our prior HTML5 announcement from last week): 

    After you've opened this link, you simply have to use your current login credentials (from your already existing account). Once you've done that, you're ready to go on your HTML5 adventure and play to your heart's content! 
    As an important note: You will be playing the HTML5 BETA with your current account! This enables you with real in-game purchases in our HTML5 BETA (due to the fact that you're playing with your own account)! 

    This means that you'd simply be playing with your already existing account, the only difference is, that it's "just" the HTML5 BETA Client-version of Empire and therefore everything you do will be handled as playing Empire as you'd usually do. 
    ...nothing will happen to your account!
    This refers to the fact, that using the HTML5 BETA won't change your account in any way (e.g. no new castle, no new troops, etc. but rather everything is as you experience it normally, but just in the HTML5 Client-version). 

    Also just to clarify: The topic in our HTML5 FAQ announcement, called "How can I play Empire?" is not intended to mention that you should/have to create a new account in order to play our HTML5 BETA! It is entirely aiming at our new and/or returning players in order to give them a hand and tell them how they can log into the game per se, in case that they should've forgotten about it.

    chat seems to be working for me - able to converse with players using Java... I've also only got the one blank line at the bottom of chat when maximised Google Chrome Version 70.0.3538.110 (Official Build) (64-bit)

    i got quiet good into the new version. The screensize needs to be reset. i have used different browsers to log in and they all have the same problem. It appears to me that the zoom in size is standard. So zoming out is not possible or hardly few %
    Zooing in therefore is extreem.

    A nice centraled fit of the castle and all surroundings like the chariots, ect would be nice to have. this should be the 100% view. so then is one likes there should be a furthe out en inzoom possiblility.
     for chrome 70.0.1338.110 64bit first 2 pics; firefox 63.0.3 64bit next 3 pics and edge 42.17134.1.0 microsoft edge html 14.14134 at a windows 10 home version 1803.
    prtscr included. hope to have of any use with my coment

  • very unstable, with crome crashes after login, maxthon5 stucks at5% ,could not even try to login, new firefox plays minutes stable but starts freezing all the time, zoom works with mousescroll but freezes game aroun 10secons and browser asks to shut siter or wait for respons... just all this in ten minutes trying to test this. at this moment, dissapointed.

  • I have a weird bug in the HTML5 version - All the RBCs are burning i mean literally all of them on the map and everywhere - In green, ice, sands and fire. This isnt happening in the flash version
    I'm using Google Chrome for HTML and standalone for flash
    This is the HTML5 version - All towers are burning but i attacked none of them

    This is the flash version

    And The flash version is clear, HTML 5 version is blurry

    The Shadow for those fonts in the attack screen looks stupid

    Encampment tents outside rvs, in all outer kingdoms,  are showing as red/gold regardless of player colours.

    For me it is very slow on chrome but about the same as normal on internet explorer. Chrome also has the zoom problem and spinning cogs, while that is not an issue with IE.

    IE has always run the game better for me and it is the only reason I use that browser. I am hoping the chrome version gets improved so I can just use chrome for everything.

    A lot to say about bugs actually.
    - view is blurry in html
    - cant zoom out on castle view
    - Icon colour on flag is black while it is other colour (other players see the normal colour) Note (edit): is fixed by just changing the colour!
    - In chat there is just a couple lines with no chat at all.. counts for little and big chat
    - html is working fine/smooth for me, but others keep crashing or it is really slow.

    For now nothing else noticed.
    Getting bored of the game...

    Castle is zoomed in and i have no idea how to zoom out.
    So! this is just as i expected: the HTML5 runs faster than flash, but as Lady Nym said, it became immediately apparent that zooming out is not possible. That could become problematic for me, it means i will have to drag myself across all of my castle until I get to the place i wanna be.
