Not to downplay the importance of everyone else but I would like to point out that theAnswer truly lives up to his name

I believe that the front page has recently added a new feature that does just that.

It's all very happy now, Just one question for some of you though. Why would you want 50 FPS when the human eye can only recognize somewhere around 30?

If your argument begins with the phrase "I don't think" please stop and do so before making it.

Actually, the human eye can only see around 60FPS.

We as humans have a very advanced visual system. While some animals out there have sharper vision, there is usually something given up with it (for eagles there is color, for owls it is the inability to move the eye in its socket). We can see in millions of colors (women can see up to 30% more colors than men, so if a woman doesn't think your outfit matches, she is probably right, go change), we have highly movable eyes, and we can perceive up to and over 60 fps. We have the ability to focus as close as an inch, and as far as infinity, and the time it takes to change focus is faster than the fastest, most expensive auto-focusing camera out there. We have a field of view that encompasses almost 170 degrees of sight, and about 30 degrees of fine focus. We receive information constantly and are able to decode it very quickly.
So what is the answer to how many frames per second should we be looking for? Anything over 60 fps is adequate, 72 fps is maximal (anything over that would be overkill).

  • Clients are now limited to 2 concurrent connections per account
  • A number of locks and crashes were fixed
  • Connection limit was raised to ~1000

All players should notice much smoother gameplay. With 900 players on line last night, the server experienced no noticeable lag. TheAnswer and the development team deserve many thanks for their hard work on these stability rubix cubes.

Cheers and have a great time!
Incredible news, thanks Max!!

Of course, with games, we must consider the possible drops during high activity, so having a higher than noticeable framerate doesn't hurt.

Anyway, I haven't had a chance to play lately, but this sounds very nice so thanks guys
