Crashing to Desktop (CTD)

Post by Sandarie » Wed May 03, 2017 10:12 pm

If for any reason you crash to the desktop, including your internet blipping, then you must do the following because your character remains logged into the server,:

If you are new to EiF and this happens, be sure you have the latest patch loaded. The instructions are here: http://www.empireinflames.com/?page_id=318

THEN, once you are sure you have the latest patch correctly loaded do the following:
1) Relaunch and choose your character, you get the loading screen, but never fully load in. You must then press ESC to back out of SWG.
2) Then relaunch a second time.

In my experience (only got connection failures so far, though, and mostly on Basilisk; it never caused a crash, either), it's enough to go to the loading screen, press ESC as many times as needed to get back to the login screen (not character selection!), then log back into the character without restarting the client.

If it works for the issue you described, it's a fair bit more convenient than restarting the client outright (plus it remembers your login info this way, because we're minmaxing now :P).

So, replacement steps would be this:
1) Relaunch and choose your character, you get the loading screen, but never fully load in. You must then press ESC a few times to get back to the login screen (not character selection, I cannot stress this enough).
2) Log back in and choose your character again.
