Update: chatlog in ramdisk

November 18th, 2017 5 comments
  • Added aiondb.ru link in the menu Help/5.6 gear calc
  • Added a feature “Move Chat.log to Ramdisk” under Tools/System Tools:

This will move Chat.log to another location (that you choose) and create a symlink so that you can have the log file somewhere else. The idea behind this is to have the log in a Ramdisk. The Aion client is very poorly coded when it comes to writing the combat log (well it’s crap generally tbh), thus you notice lag/freezes in sieges or places that generate a lot of writes to that file. Usually a SSD should be enough to mitigate this issue, but it’s still not enough somehow, so I thought maybe a Ramdisk will help; the main factor here, more than r/w speed, is the disk latency. I haven’t tested it much so let me know if it makes any difference. In most cases you will have to re-create the symlink (through the ARM menu option) every time you start Aion since it seems to remove it somehow..

To make it work do it while you are at the char selection screen, if you do it before launching the game it might fail (also not while logged into a character). Edit: running a 2nd client also seems to mess up with the symlink.

Little comparison so you get an idea of the performance difference..

Normal HDD

Sata SSD (high-end m.2 drives are much faster up to ~3500 MB/s)

Ramdisk (DDR3)

As for the Ramdisk software there are many out there. Personally I use one I bought a few years ago called QSoft, but it doesn’t seem to be available anymore. Make sure you choose a large enough size for the log, mine is 1 GB.

Update: shop icon

September 5th, 2017 4 comments

Restored the original EU shop icon (without the annoying animation that appears until you click it). Apparently GF has been warning people of “client modification” for that icon.. *missing facepalm meme*

This is only relevant if you start Aion from ARM.

Update: “Fast Startup”

September 3rd, 2017 6 comments

Little tweak I found on the Facebook EU group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/aioneu/permalink/1674310569269264/

Apparently this is just a switch to let Aion load in some sort of “safe”(r) mode after a crash or some error, which makes the loading time much much longer..

The FB post suggests making the file read-only so that you never have to re-do this process again, so I added this little tweak in ARM’s launch feature, but without the read-only setting. Each time you run Aion from ARM it will first check that file and re-set those values to 1 so that there’s no need to lock the file as read-only. The feature will be ON by default after this udpate, and works only for EU and AionLegend clients (can’t run NA Aion from ARM).
