    It would be cool (and would save the devs some bandwidth) if you could pre-load all of the game's graphics onto your comp.
    Where you think you supercool and is you things the girls where I honestly like I is then why are humans on their as my people or what would you?

    Believe it or not I have pretty much begun praying they do something like this so maybe I can once again enjoy the game, once you got so many items the game will play "lag-o-ton" with you, never loading any graphics till way late, might as well be looking at black squares all the time.

    That's quite a genius idea, especially if there's no other way to get around the Flash memory leaks.

    The only thing I know of that helps the lag is the ad block add-on, and what you can put into it to disable animations. I cant remember where the information is, I think it's under tutorials.

    I guess I'm lucky, because I don't experience lag. If the attacks on raids start going longer than 2 seconds apart, I just refresh the game.

    So the game can get slow for two reasons - it starts to consume too much memory as you wrote and then the restart helps. But sometimes the lag is from the server response - e.g., waiting for 15 seconds to add one raid to the list or to hit a person in PVP - and there the reload does not help.

    I think the small client for caching is a nice idea - not only it would make things faster, but it would eliminate all this reloading from the servers and thus reduce the server traffic.

    This would help with the lag!
    This would help with bandwidth!
    This would (might) help with my (as well as others') log in problems!
    Hell it might even cure cancer!

    necrotopic up!

    Cause graphics loading lags become more and more annoying as the game continues to introduce new content with new pics.
    Actaully game is being never fully loaded now.
    Why not to make a client part with all the pictures to download?

    It doesn't need to be a separate client. Just put up a downloadable zip file with all of the images and tell us what directory to unzip them into.

    Have the game client, upon initial launch, try to load one specific image locally. If that image is found, load all images from the local drive. If it isn't found, load all images as is currently done.

    Then, we just need to make sure we download the newest/latest image pack each week when the patch puts out new items with new images. The specific image the game client looks for could be changed each time there is a new batch of images so that it always looks for one of the new images and only loads images locally if you have the latest images stored locally.

    Can't flash put data in your local AppData folder?
    Could be used as cache imo.

    Download all images to your own PC (I could provide node.js script for that if needed). Set up http server locally. Move downloaded images (with folders structure) to your http server content directory. Use hosts file or any other rerouting technique to bind https://5thplanetdawn.insnw.net/dotd_live/images to your localhost/dotd_live/images (or 443 if you like https :P). That routine would need to be repeated each patch to get newly added images.

    Easy, right?

    Probably... for IT geeks.

    Personally, I think I'll pass.

    Well, I have opened the DOTD .SWF file in flashplayer, only problem is that you have to login outside if the game. Any idea how to login in via, say, facebook on the flashplayer?

    (not too good at this, :P)

    Game file:
    https://5thplanetdawn.insnw.net/dotd_live/swf/12912/dotd.swf
    Chat file:
    https://5thplanetdawn.insnw.net/dotd_live/chat/931/chatclient.swf

    Within our solar system there is a gap in the ordinal positioning of the planets. That gap is currently occupied by the asteroid belt. It has been hypothesized there was once a planet and some extraordinary cosmic event caused it to explode. The genesis, lore, and�history of our game takes place on that mythical planet

    Eee what? Create what? Redirect where?

    I am a "kettle" user in net technologies. And I don't want to be (self-)educated in this area at all.
    So, only installer or archive and then "I click the icon and the game runs" would be a good solution for me. I think, not only for me.

    pyrolizard, if you find how, tell me please. Like the idea.

    As far as I understood mutik, his solution didn't include starting the game outside of normal means - just caching the images on your computer.
    Download all images to your own PC (I could provide node.js script for that if needed).
    This step is simply downloading images from 5pg servers to your computee - although without using a script of some kind it won't really be plausible thing to do (and I myself am to lazy to write such a thing - I'd first need to know how to find index of all those files etc.) you'll probably have to install something to run this script (like node.js).
    Set up http server locally.
    Now you'd need to install some kind of http server to host those images on your computer (i.e. apache) - another program to install.
    Move downloaded images (with folders structure) to your http server content directory.
    Move downloaded files to place where the http server will be able to find them.
    Use hosts file or any other rerouting technique to bind https://5thplanetdawn.insnw.net/dotd_live/images to your localhost/dotd_live/images (or 443 if you like https :P).
    This step is basically tricking the game to use your local images, instead of the ones hosted by 5pg.
    That routine would need to be repeated each patch to get newly added images.
    This should be pretty self explanatory :P

    Weeeell, if you follow this link it should DL the game's .swf file, then you just open that in flashplayer. Only problem is it needs you to login(because, normally, you login via FB, KONG, AG, or NG before you open the game, and there isn't really a way to login inside the game), and I have yet to figure out if that is possible in the flashplayer.
