Every time I make a move (walk, enter a building etc) it has to completely reload the page and this takes about ten seconds. You can imagine how frustrating this can be if someone is waiting within the building and they take me out before I can even load the page. Is this happening for anyone else?

The page has to reload each time, because there are a lot of factors you might need to be made aware of. Like who's in the room, the barricade/repair level, where you are on map view, if the door's open, if there's a generator and how much fuel it has, if there's any new discussion, if there's a new event, etc.

There's really no way around having to refresh the page, otherwise you might miss some info if, say, the map view didn't reload and you didn't see "1 Zombie" appear on the next tile over.
If I should live until I wake, I pray the web my death to fake.

Ah, okay. Well do you have any suggestions as to how I could speed up the process? It's quite frustrating, but if there's not that is fine I will definitely keep playing.

It shouldn't take a full ten seconds to load, though I can't say why it would for you. D:

There are server problems currently that the host can't figure out - that might be a factor.

What browser are you using? It happened before way back with Ie. Maybe try Firefox.

The page generated number is how long it took the server to process the page, not how long it takes you to load it, so it depends more on connection speed and lag and such.

Also, the game *could* be modified so that the entire page doesn't need to be reloaded, but eh. Seems like a lot of work.

To keep current with what's going on, you'd need to reload everything but the header and footer.

Not necessarily, but it's just that the entire thing would probably need to be rewritten, soooo...

Let's say you just clicked to "enter" a building.

Things that have to be refreshed:

Map view w/title
Room desc w/Bodies here, etc.
Who's here
Attack drop-down (if there's stuff/people in there)
Options below map, like "Exit"
AP - 1
HP - if you're infected, etc.
Events saying you entered
Inventory in case you have something you can "set up" indoors

And more...


That's just for stepping in a door.

Well, sure, I'm just saying that the page doesn't need to be reloaded, necessarily.
