Sound and Performance in WoW while WH in BG.
Return to board index
Whenever a intensive flash banner/advertisement shows on Wowhead and I am in World of Warcraft, I experience a very low FPS drop in the game. I sometimes have to reload the page and stop it from loading before the advertisements show, just to stop the lag. Some advertisements with sound will make the sound in-game to turn choppy, thus, shutting the game down, reloading the website/stopping before the ads show up, and the restarting the game. I know I'm not the only one with this problem. I even messaged Wowhead about this through an e-mail and someone had told me something was going to be in place to fix it or something but I don't see it.
wtb 'Detonate Ads' button
I think you guys really need to set up a donation -> ad removal system. I'm totally never turning Adblock off but I'll give you money directly -- more than once, probably.
That was me who wrote that email. We're definitely excited about the donation -> ad removal idea, and are looking at a way of closing the ads while you're in game right now--I'll talk with Sko about it this afternoon. :)
Thank you for the replies.
Game lags insanely hard now.
Since then, the "temporarily hide ads" button has been implemented. It's at the top right corner, next to the search box. It looks like a little pull-out tab. Click that tab before you tab back to WoW and it should fix your FPS problem.
I know it's a workaround, but it's a start.
