Thread: Bigshot Lag

  1. Default Bigshot Lag

    Anyone know why Bigshot has increasingly been lagging stormfront after running for a few minutes? Ending the script immediately causes the lag to stop, but it can get so bad that it literally freezes the game until you do so. Then it will catch up with screen scroll for days. Restarting the script seems to work normally for a bit, but the lag returns after a few minutes. Seems to be worst in crowded areas like TSC. I'm running the latest versions of Ruby and Lich, so can't figure out why this is happening more and more now.

    Anyone else have this experience? Fixes?

    Are you running the 64 bit version of Lich? I had similar issues and switched to the i386 version and all my latency and slowness issues vanished.

    I'm running Lich 4.6.54 and yes I think its the 64 bit thatcomes with the ruby installer. How do i get/find the i386 version? Not showing up on any of the lich project pages.

    Use the installer at

    Make sure you are selecting the non-64 bit option if it presents itself. Make sure you are only installing Ruby when you run the installer, don't check the boxes to install Lich itself or it will overwrite your existing install. I'd recommend renaming your current folder where Ruby is installed on your PC and also backing up your Lich install folder just in case.

    I was blown away by how much faster it runs once I did this.

    That's what i did last week to try and fix the problem and it didn't make a difference. Just tried again and there is no option to install a non-64 version of lich that I can see...

    There is a script on the repo called version.lic.

    Download that script and run it. Copy the results up here for review.

    This confirms you are on the 32 bit version. Try moving your LICH directory from Ruby4Lich to your Desktop.

    Do you use a shortcut to start the lich login? Do you just double click on lich.rbw to log in? Do you log in via the website or through SGE?

    I have lich.rbw pinned to my taskbar so effectively I just double click it to start. Log in through SGE via lich. I'll try moving lich to the desktop but can't imagine how that would make a difference...

    It likely will not. I do not know enough about how Lich works with SGE to be sure there is no problem there. My suggestion after moving the Lich folder would be to reinstall SF from the GS website, and if that does not work, you might have to visit the GS discord scripting channel or help channel and ask for help, since this will be beyond my experience.
