     1-9. 64-bit Client Patch – Beta

 

  ▶Developer's Comment 

 

◆ Why we developed a 64-bit client?

-  Having been in service for 10 years, Dragon Nest has developed a lot of content and processed a lot of data accordingly.

   Increasingly memory-intensive clients were inevitably forced to face the limitations of available memory due to existing 32-bit constraints.

   As a result, users experienced frequent client dumps while playing the game, which caused inevitable inconvenience.   

   In order to address this issue, we optimized the memory management for Dragon Nest clients,

   but eventually, due to the limitations of usable memory in 32-bit clients,

   we decided to start R&D and development for creating and providing service through a 64-bit client because we thought it would be better for Dragon Nest users in the days to come.

 

 

 

◆ What was the most memorable event during development? Or the most difficult issue?

-  There was a problem with intermittent black screens and client dumps while moving to a stage after dungeon play.

   It required a lot of time and effort because it took a long while to specify the problem since it was difficult to reproduce and, 

   even having defined the problem, it did not immediately occur even after using the problematic skill.

 
-  There was a sound issue (I remember because it was something I never considered beforehand). There was a discrepancy with some of the sound data being read at 32/64-bit, so not all of the sounds were played back after the initial 64-bit transition. However, we got reports that the file was more pleasant to play without these sounds.

   In the end, we further analyzed the sound logic and completed the optimization process.

 

 

 

◆ Expected benefits of the 64-bit client

- The elimination of the frequent dump phenomenon that occurred while playing is expected to reduce a lot of stress, which was the reason we developed the new client in the first place

   (80% to 90% of the dumps were due to a lack of memory).

 

- 64-bit clients will display some performance increases as they have greater capacity to handle more things at once compared to traditional 32-bit clients.

 

※ The current version is the beta version, and we will collect and correct errors that occur during the beta service period.

 

 

 

◆ Players can choose to play using either the 32-bit or 64-bit client on the Dragon Nest launcher

 

Run launcher on a 64-bit PC

 

Run launcher on a 32-bit PC

 

 

- On a 64-bit OS, players can choose between the 32-bit and 64-bit client.

- On a 32-bit OS, the 64-bit client cannot be selected and only the 32-bit client is available.

 

 

◆ How to check whether the 32-bit/64-bit client is running

 

The top left corner of the client displays Dragon Nest / Dragon Nest x64.

 

  

 

You can view that display to see which client is currently running.
