I for one will use "Legacy" only...

After solving my black screen problem this morning, I am Happy to say "My House" looks wonderful...

-my Vet rewards Look Cool again...
-my water fountain looks cool again...
-they didn't destroy water falls or cauldrens.. or brasiers...
-Towns look Cool again...

I for one, think this is the best change to date, Hands down... Why they didn't do this to begin with, I have no clue....

KR actually looks like an updated 2d client now... With actual Improvements...

Me thx to the Dev's...

I'm using KR - with the performance enhancements it runs better than 2D ever did for me AND looks prettier, so I don't need to downgrade back to old graphics. I am using the legacy backpack art, for now. It's cute.

ive never liked KR with its half arsed attempt of photoshopped graphic (speaking as a graphic designer)

Sure some things are big +s as animations and so on... but the reaction times in KR is so slow.. so wouldnt use it.

The legacy art looks so much better than the new KRap. Legacy art for sure.

And they really got KR running a lot better too. (except the sound for now....)

Tuka :cool:

TUKA!! I am DIEING. KRap indeed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I logged on to check it out. There IS a huge speed improvement. As long as you stay on the same screen. Once new objects start loading, it is the same old KR. There appears to be a saturation point where the new changes become overloaded with new object loading, and you slow to a permanent crawl.
Did not stay on long enough to check out this legacy mode.

Seriously - I just cannot relate to what your saying! KR runs at least as smooth as 2d for me, even in Luna...

How big are the spell delays in KR now?

Its always been running smooth... but if something like spells or skills got tiny delays because of a slow engine... I wont have it.

Don't think legacy is working for me. I changed to legacy system, artwork, and legacy backpack. After relogging, my legacy backpack is totally empty in freeform view, but I can see all in list or grid formats. Am I hopeless or what?

I much prefer KR and the new graphics. The only "legacy" I'm using is the legacy backpack art, cuz I like backpacks :)

I tested KR a week ago, and it is actually running in a playable speed now! Great!
Legacy mode is great, too...
But I still don't know. The Items in my backpack seem blurry and weird... Also, I can't get out of Deceit for some reason.

But I sense I'm getting closer to using KR, maybe in a patch on two

just gave it a try and it doesn't work on my system (win xp, 8800gtx, newest drivers). In my house I see items from the floors above hanging around. quite annoying. Feels like beta again. I'll stick with 2D

Maybe I'm misunderstanding what the legacy art mode is - I thought it was just all the old graphics plopped into the new interface. I may have to try it - though I do like KR's graphics and have grown used to them.

I didn't vote. I just download KR for 4th time this weekend. I will use KR for my crafter (heard KR is really great for crafters), archer, and mage. I am going to use the Legacy for my thief, sword/bushido/necro, and my tamer.

I refuse. I didn't use 3d, I won't use the KR. Tried it and just about gagged. Besides, I prefer using UOA...la

I didn't like 3D but love KR. 3D was the same interface with different graphics. The strength of KR is primarily in its new interface. Even if you stick with the legacy graphics, the improvements in the interface are substantial. There's no need for UOA, as all of the features I ever used in UOA are built into the KR interface by default.
