I’m relatively new here, but since playing in Astral, my group has been seeing some issues with the platform. Certain players have seen the CPU and their GPU absolutely spiked, even to the point that their whole system slows to a crawl. Astral itself will often become unresponsive (click for a die roll and nothing happens for long minutes, etc.). Some of this is clearly related to dynamic lighting. However, dynamic lighting is hard to give up when Astral doesn’t have another easy way to hide parts of the map until they should be viewable by the players (at least that I’ve found).
In any event, it would be nice to have some pointers about system settings, browser settings or Astral settings that could make it playable for those players. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.
