Hello all,

I know some of you have reported issues with their fashion after this new patch. If you could post which fashions you are getting this issue with, it will help us in resolving it. Screen shots always helps too.

Thanks!

*UPDATE*

Issue has been fixed via a small patch. Please re-launch the game and update to see the fix.

Manual Patch can be found here:
http://pwi-ns.perfectworld.com/patches/manual/ec_patch_332-334.cup

Thanks for your patience. =)

    - Corsair's Set

    - Shining Feather Set

    - Pearl Blossom Dress

    - School Girl Uniform

    - Vampire Set

    - Leopard Set


    These are the only sets I know to be bugged so far. I can post screenshots later but no doubt many will beat me to it. Oh, also for the record, these are for the female versions of these sets. I don't play a male character so I couldn't tell you about male fashion.

    Here's a thought, and don't take this wrong but, log in game and have a look. You really want that many posts/emails showing the same messed up fashions? Not spending 2 hours taking ss of it all, however here is what I know of.

    Icelace, Vampire, Corsair, Shining Feathers, Tech Tribal, Eastern Dress, Ballett, Romance, Schoolgirl, Classic Dance, Summer Chipao, Lovebird

    The list encompasses pretty much any piece of fashion using an alpha channel for transparency. Not certain what the Devs screwed around with to muck it up, but it's not what I thought it was - which is at least a point in their favor. Seems there's been some kind of engine change regarding how PWI handles those things, and it's messing up their color mapping.

    How much testing goes into your patches before you implement them? This is a pretty easy bug to spot if any amount of testing would have been done first....

    And why is PWI always trying to put the responsibilities of their goofs on the players' hardwares?

    I have a theory. I'll test it once the patch is finished downloading.

    PS: If I'm right, every single Dev in Bejing ought to be fired for gross incompetence, and PWE management ought to be slapped for not calling them on this BS before it became a patch.

    Kephras, I'm curious.

    ... So curious I almost want you to PM me. D8

    well as far as i can tell its every fashion that contains white coloured parts (not white dyed fash thoughas ar as i can tell(at least my white fairy slippers are still white)) but any fashion that has white parts like lovebird, classic dance or even the belt of vamp pants etc is bugged.

    What I noticed was that any fashion with gradient colored parts (white or otherwise; like Kephras said, using alpha channel/layer transparency for the gradient/detail effects) that are supposed to remain the same color after dyeing (e.g. the "feathery" part of the corsair dress, flowers on the eastern dress, white areas of the classic dance dress and lovebird dress) now change to the dye color upon dyeing. I think it's a simple mistake and probably easy to fix if you know how the color mapping code works

    Lovebird Dress.

    It's like the top layer is missing or something. I have the basic colour, but no white/sparkly overlay.

    No offense to the GMs and Tech support, but if there are so many people with the same issue, it's not a graphics card issue. It seems that everyone has the same issue. Anything that was once two-tone is now mono-tone, and many not for the better. My lavendar ballet dress has no white left on it, same as everyone else. This is a technical error on PWI's end, not the graphics card's end.

    shh, it's always the player's computer's fault. always.

    My video card is ATI Radeon HD 4800 series.
    I only have a problem with my School girl shoes.

    EDIT!!! - Just realized the chain on my Leopard trousers look weird, too. On an earlier screenie, you can see it was shiny silver. Now a big part of it is green. Not a huge glitch, but it should be fixed, too.

    Oh, and just for giggles I checked to see if the reason this broke is because they fixed the transparency issue. Hahahah I know right? Well here's the result, it's even worse now.

    Awesome job as always PWI! </sarcasm>

    Oh, and I have dual GTX 275's so don't dare try to blame your lack of ability to code properly on my hardware.

    I took a look and felt like logging off. Haven't bothered to check the rest of the fashions in my wardrobe yet.

    I thought we were supposed to be playing and enjoying the game and not to be PWI's personal quality controllers. Can I submit a ticket about PWI's devs ruining and impeding our enjoyment of the game according to the TOS?

    For a publicly listed company, you guys sure have lousy quality control. Your devs keep giving us more bugs with every patch. Does it seem like they're trying our patience or just that they're so bored they do this to get a laugh from reading our postings in the forums whenever something like this happens?

    The way things seem, they look as if it were on my laptop, which is barely out of graphics card capability for this game.

    I have a GEForce 6600 LE and those garments didn't look like that before this present patch.

    The following garment has 2 holes in it now LOLz. Should I get a tailor to mend it?
