Two problems/bugs I have

Post by Court-Jus » 22 Sep 2005, 10:36

* I run the game on Linux, and some times, after logging in and choosing my character, the games freezes totally, I have to kill -9 it

* Once, I had a "broken pipe" and the game crashed...

I don't know what I can do to help you with that ...??

Broken pipe is most common when the server is restarted, we still have to make the client handle this better. The freeze after choosing your character is probably the (blocking) connect to the map server, this is also an area we need to improve.

Well if it's a temp freeze then you will just have to wait as Bjorn said it's because of the blocking connect. I'm working on non-blocking connects at the moment as well as nice "Please wait. Connecting..." dialogs.

About the broken pipe cause of server disconnection, I hope that the improved SDL_net network engine should handle it better, I'm working on making it so an ingame "You got disconnected from the server appear". And you get back to the login screen. The client should behave better then.
