Q: I try to play Shaiya, but my computer keeps restarting. Any suggestions?
A: When any program repeatedly shuts down your computer, chances are you’re running Windows XP and Windows is encountering a conflict. In Windows XP, the default setting is for the computer to reboot automatically when a fatal error occurs. (Pretty useless if you're trying to troubleshoot, isn’t it?)
To change the recovery settings and disable automatic rebooting:
1. Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
2. Click the Advanced tab.
3. Under Startup and Recovery, click Settings to open the Startup and Recovery dialog box.
4. Clear the Automatically restart check box, and click OK the necessary number of times.
5. Restart your computer for the settings to take effect.
Now when a fatal error occurs, you'll at least see it and it won't cause an automatic reboot. You still have to sort out what's causing the problem, but at least you’ll have a starting point.
Q: Why do I get weird graphics/no textures/serious lag when playing Shaiya?
A: Please make sure that your computer meets or exceeds the systems requirements for Shaiya. Pay close attention to you processor’s speed, the amount of system RAM you have and your video card specs. Also, make sure that you are running the most recent version of the drivers for your video card.
Q: I am having problems downloading Shaiya. Can you help?
A: Unfortunately, not really. You can try any of the connection-related items already listed, or if you’re running a router, try bypassing it; but if you can’t download the game, check your system or network setup, or try contacting the mirror site you’re downloading from.
Q: Why am I getting such poor framerate?
A: First, make sure that your computer meets or exceeds the system requirements for Shaiya. Next, please shut down all other programs before starting Shaiya. If you’re sharing your network, make sure that no one else is hogging all of your bandwidth.
Q: I'm boring in practising by myself, so..?
A: You could buy Shaiya gold and Shaiya powerleveling for your characters, just have a try!
