Welcome to Gaia! ::

Note: This does not work in Chrome.

For those plagued by crippling (or even just annoying) lag in zOMG, I've found that if you adblock the animated, the game runs significantly faster. It's really an amazing difference.

This is what it looks like... not super-exciting, but the performance boost is worth it, trust me.

If you lag, even just a little bit, give this a try. You won't be sorry =)

Here are the codes (It's pretty easy to figure out which code affects which animated):

Don't forget you need to install Adblock for Firefox/Flock!!

Adblock Codes
The animated that I find the laggiest are underlined.

Let me know if this helps! If you need adblock codes for other animated, let me know!

Thanks to Coolazity for showing me this!

BIGGGG thanks to Animal Comic Creator for posting a ton of adblock codes!!

You can download adblock from here:
Firefox: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1865
Safari (Macs): http://download.cnet.com/Safari-AdBlock/3000-2378_4-10793198.html (Thanks Chozo!)

nice

Perfect Saint

Adblock the EB!!! twisted

I believe I shall try this. I couldn't go very far in the SS without a browser-crash.


EDIT: THUMBS UP! It was smooth. I only got to half of the SS, but I like the flow. Too bad, I didn't make it to the mob. It will take some getting used to having animated shadow ninjas sneak up on you.

No eff u! My computer is amazazing. I don't need yo' hax magicks.


(I'm sure this will help a lot of people.)
i only blocked the sprouts cuz they cause the most lag. i just wish you could actually block the animations. like the fish swimming around, and the small airbubbles that float up.
@Myrielle and Mr_Chuy: Let me know if it helps!

Next we'll be adblocking the backgrounds. (Who needs to see where they're goin-OUCH!)

You can still tell what animated it is in the little... target window thing >___>. But yeah, that is an issue for some people. It's not a fix that everybody will like (I still think everybody should at least try it). I suggest that you adblock just a few of the animated (Sea Spouts and Grunny Subs @__@). It'll still help with lag, and you'll know which animated you're fighting.

And if you've been through SS as many times as I have, you'll generally know where each mob is, and which animated it is.
