    Hi.

    As it seems that lots of us Vista users are suffering from problems and the Chronicles site seems to mention nothing of our plight, could you please use this thread to keep us updated about the progress regarding the issue. :confused:

    As you may read from other threads, lots of us are computer noobs and aren't as proficient in the use of the PC as others. Therefore the more information you can give us (Idiots guide? :)) the better.

    As you can apprecite it, some of us can't access the game where as those who can have managed to get their subscriptions worth out of today.

    Thanks

    That is amazing. Mythic had a MAJOR problem with vista when they first released the patch etc.. and within a few days servers were down again whilst they repatched or smth :d

    Weird how they lack communication! ;d

    A quick search of the herald, which I am sure even the n00biest PC person can handle, revealed this:

    Hope this helps, and sorry for Mr Gates screwing your day.

    It might help if people said what the problem was, then maybe a tech head could answer it better.

    The most frustrating thing for anyone in IT is when helldesk calls simple read "It broke, you fix good!", instead of giving the actual problem.

    When using ToA client - there is no load in data. It eventually goes to the character selection screen where I can't see any option for characters and when I do click where they'd be they are ghost like figures. When I log one in, it crashes to desktop.

    When using DR client - loads in fine but all characters have luminous pink faces! When I log one in the game crashes back to desktop.

    Using lab client u can load to the char screen, click play - the bar gets around 60% then you get a Windows APP crash from game.dll.... i have tried redownloading the game.dll file but nothing changed

    What I think really gets my goat is not the problem itself - hell these things happen and if they didn't check it beforehand then that is piss poor - but its the COMMUNICATION. If it wasn't for FH, how many of us would be suffering thinking that its just happening to me! I wish they'd acknowledge there is a problem and explain what they are trying to do to resolve it. :twak:

    What we have here are some noobs that have just bought vista and demand everything done right now - or else - or else what? You can't sit on your ass all day and play an online game for the next 8 hours? Grow up get a job and less hating - so much negative energy.

    Sorry to burst your rather angry bubble, its not a case that people are being lazy bastards, they pay to play, and Vista is the future of opperating systems thanks to Bill Gates extraodinary powers of market capture. Until your post we were getting the problems out in the open from users, clear and concise information is what is needed for GOA and Mythic to sort the problem, not the crap you came out with.

    Passing whats useful to the GOA forums now, if anyone else has something half decent to add, please let me know.

    "Vista Users

    Posted By: Sanya Thomas 2007-03-30 15:10:34


    If you are a Vista user, you currently are not able to play the live game. We've been working on this non-stop for awhile now.

    You may have noticed that Vista worked on Pendragon, so why doesn't it work on live? That's because Microsoft put in a feature to help Vista work with older games, such as the five year old Camelot. This feature works with the file called "game.dll." Pendragon's file is not called that - it's called "tgame.dll." For various reasons, we have to keep calling the live file "game.dll," so we need to find a solution that doesn't involve renaming the file.

    Please don't try to rename the file yourself.

    We've been working very closely with Microsoft on this issue, but progress is slow. We're doing the best we can with this, and I am sorry for the frustration."

    Looks like they had the same problem but solved it in 2hours.....

    Seems goa did not ask them what they did to fix this when they had chance.

    No we have people who pay £x.xx / month to GOA to play an online game. We get a patch in EU that has been out in US months, had a know issue with VISTA in US, yet GOA clearly didn't test this patch with Vista or they would have encountered the problem that from what it seems every Vista user is getting (im assuming this because no one has posted yet about having vista working). Now I've played since Beta so tend not to expect much from GOA and they haven't dissapointed again...

    No one is hating GOA just showing frustation at its subscribers being short changed again... <steps off soap box>
