I guess you should do what Huntingtons said, I don't know what to do either. Usually in the SI/TOA directory there are files, like, Galyn-177.ini, these contain my quickbar and UI window locations and stuff for Galyn. I don't quite see how deleting those can put your character out of Emain, but eh. If you have freshly reinstalled you probably don't have these files yet. :(

Secondly, I've been playing my paladin quite a bit recently and have been enjoying him, reavers are pretty good too, they can do lots of damage, they can block/guard just as well as a paladin, but they can't heal their groups with chants. :) (My favourite blockbot/guard is a Reaver when I need damage or another Paladin for the chants)

However, since your main, Osprey, is already a melee, maybe you should try something with a caster?

try logging on. when the login screen gets to the end of loading bar just spam escape key.. normally that will take you back to the character select screen and your character auto ported to CS.

At least that is how i got all my characters our of old emain and i had a lot of them there :D

You got the answer you did because you didn't RightNow it, you sent an email to subs asking them to solve the problem. They cannot solve ingame issues as they do not have access to the tools that the GM team has and so likely interpreted your problem as a technical one rather than an ingame one. Send it to RightNow, log in using your game login and password and use any category other than 'Technical'.
The auto-port out of OF that Corran is talking about only worked up until 1.73.

An even more important question. Why the heck is still OF on the servers? :p Give us the option to play there instead :mad: Oh yeh, delete NF. I wish GOA had some mean employers who get a kick out of doing /format c:\New Frontiers Server Edition on the server pc. :cheers:

OF not on the servers in the stictist sense.. When you log in the account you do not log in Old Frontiers.. you basically dont log in at all however it trying to read your position as being there still i guess and gets confused as fuck :D

Basicly, if your character is logged in OF it's in null and the server reads it as a viable character (the character data isn't corrupted) in a non viable space, which is why it needs to be moved manually.
