I like the fact that possible topic matches come up when I enter the Topic Title. It should help to minimize duplicate posts. I am trying to set up a single topic however, that will allow for posts about multiple different perceived problems in the same topic.
With that in mind, I will start with two problems I've seen:
- Autosave does not allow you to load a game you can then use, and
- The game locked up after about 3½ hours of game time.
1.03.47 - Played from new character creation with no problems
4:33:xx - Talked to Kirgin and went to explore the old mine. Finished fighting the skeletons and tried to teleport out to sell some loot when the computer locked up so tight I had to shut it down to regain control.
4:16:xx - (See note 1 above) When I finally got my computer back and started the game I found that the last two saves had been auto-saves. When I tried to load them they were in Pause mode and I could not get out. I had to go all the way back to 4:16 something which was my last manual save before I could get a runnable game.
4:33:xx - (See note 2 above) I played the game until the same point as the lock-up, saved the game, and teleported to the merchant just as before. There were no problems this time since the game had actually only been running a little over 16 minutes. I feel the lockup was caused by a small memory leak slowly filling memory or using other resources until not enough was left to run the game. It took from 1:03:47 until 4:33:xx game time to cause any problems. The real world clock time was closer to 5 hours as I started about 2100 and was forced to stop a little after 0200.
Have not yet tried to meet up with my daughter for MP online. Am hoping to do that this Friday evening sometime.
Tried to join a MP game with my daughter and we were unable to join but we were able to see each other and trade in the initial town (Tharbakin?). Many other players were walking around chatting and doing whatever they were doing but generally ignoring any queries we made about how to join a game. Since I was active with texting the patch for 1.6 I decided to do a complete wipe of my program and reinstall. I have now done that and we will try again tomorrow.
