el restarting automatically after #exit

Recommended Posts

hi, I got a problem that is not a big one, but it gets annoying...

 

I'm running el on my windows xp at work since a couple of weeks and whenever I close the game or type #exit the game just restarts and I'm taken to the welcome screen... this happens over and over, so I have to close el by killing the process...

there's nothing in the error files...

running it on a p4 512mb winxp intelgraphics

 

this is only on win of course and it didn't do that on my old win 2k machine...

 

I got no idea why this could be and I dunno if this happens to anyone else... if there's no one else and you don't know a solution without much work just forget this as it is a truly minor thing...

 

thanks anyway

i can confirm this bug... happened once yesterday but closed..

 

and just tried to close game right now, it keeps restarting.. on windows xp too. had to kill process to make it stop.

 

maybe just an idea, if it's been since 2 days.. any code change in the last update that might have caused this?

EL restarting after a #exit is a known bug that usually happens if there is a problem in the auto update, but some files did get updated but the auto update is still trying to run. If the Autoupdate totally errors out, it should not restart.

It is not just #exit, I always leave the game by clicking the "X" in the window (I run it in windowed mode), and I had it happen twice in the last two days, only restarted 2-3 times before it closed though, I didn't have to kill the process

first day that i had the problem, it closed at the 2nd try.

 

the 2nd time, it took me about 10-12 tries and it was still restarting, so i got pissed off and killed the process :icon13:

hmm... the autoupdate thing seems to make sense... if the game runs for less than aproxx 45min this happens... if I let it run longer things are fine...

 

thus is there anything in the autoupdate that keeps trying for that long even if failing every time?

 

and thanks for answering everybody ;)

Stopping playing EL is not a supported feature :D

 

(I don't get this on Linux)

Just for the record, this occured on my XP machine for the first time yesterday, only the one time so far, and the client only reopened once.

 

I had just updated my AVG Anti-Virus program before this and the update didn't take, causing all kinds of mayhem with my system. The client seems okay this morning.
