Hi guys,

Tried to maximize our dps. But somehow we went from 1070m to -1058 as seen in the screenshots. Is this a know issue or did we find a very annoying bug:P?

I think it is a visual bug relating to the calculations it uses to determine dps. Your dps is not actually negative but you will not have a way to tell exactly how much damage you are dealing per second.

Indeed, it is. It's a limit of the 32-bit Calculator. The computer mistakenly thinks is a negative instead. You exceed 2,147,483,647.

Computers use binary and read 2,147,483,647, as 111 1111 1111 1111 1111 1111 1111 1111. For Minus numbers the first few digits are swapped to 1. If you want to have 2,147,483,648 it is appears as 1000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000. The computer mistakenly thinks is a negative instead.

I think I can work out manually what I think your DPS could be:

-1,058,566,592 in Binary is: 1100 0000 1110 0111 1000 1110 0100 0000.

Your DPS is : 3,236,400,704

Shouldn't this be in DD1 forums?

I don't think when they planned the game, anyone could get close that limit. We've added several levels and almost double the limits for just about everything!

Lol no... it's not even close to 3.24m dps...

If you look at the damage numbers on the dummy per hit, it should be just shy of 1.09m dps.
