Hi,

Yesterday evening (2100 CET) I got kicked from the game. Before I got kicked things went slow, like animals dropped dead before i shoot a arrow. I tried to logg in again and after a long wait i came back into the game, but could not move, got resinc straight after followed by light blue screen and a disconnect. I was not able to connect to this forum either (kept loading).

It seems to be OK now. Any idea what could caused this? It seems internet connection was all right as I could normally reach other sites. Just wonder if i could do anything to avoid it.

It say something has to be changed in el.ini but as i dont understand what to do i havent done anything. Windows 7-64, Ati Radeon HD 5800.

 

I am able to play now, this is the error log from now:

Can you create a new char and log in with that? Just a thing to try, if it works, we know it is not the connection or the game, but something about the char/location

 

With respect to the data dir, thats a normal warning and should not cause any problems since it defaults to the current (= correct) directory.

Thank you for replying. The next day it worked again as normal. I guess some bird was sitting on the line :)

If the dir warning is normal i won't change anything.

The #data_dir tells the client program where to look for the game data. If the value is not correct, the client falls back to looking in the current directory. So, the dir warning is a real warning that can be fixed. However, as the fall back works for you, there is no real need to change it.
