View Full Version : Lamannia client won't connect

I have successfully downloaded and installed my Lamannia client, into a different directory than my live client. Once the launcher loads though, it fails to connect. It just sits there at this point:

Until it eventually fails, like so:

My launcher for the live servers works perfectly fine, no problems connecting at all. My firewall is set to give the Lamannia launcher and client full access to both incoming and outgoing data. Just to test it, I completely disabled my firewall and tried restarting the Lamannia launcher and there was no change. This is not a firewall issue. What's the problem here?

if you log out and close the client you can not get back in there are still a few of us in also if you leave the test dojo you can not go back because the door is gone

Squeek posted this in another thread:

The Kobold room also provides a handy area to test out abilities! However, if Lamannia comes crashing down because of this, we will have to close the Test Dojo and return to the old ways.

So maybe having everything in one place has caused an issue...

Yes, can't connect, stop at "waiting".

I think that people that have the instalation of Lama before the update can connect, but the ones that have download the latest version after update can't connect (maybe have to do with the infamous Pando media)

Unfortunately I am having the same issues here. The main DDO live client is working perfectly for me, yet when I attempt to go to Lammania I am stuck on the "connect: Waiting" problem. I installed/resinstalled 4 times (2 times on two separate computers) . Once with the downloader I got back in 2010 and another that I downloaded this morning, both still having the same problem.

I have double checked my firewall settings and can't find any issue there. I made sure that each installation is miles away from the other on my hard drive. I tried doing the high graphics install and without the high graphics. I have also cleared out the cache and temp.files on IE (I read that might be an issue) and still no go.

Any assistance on resolving this would be greatly appreciated.

I had a client installed from when I was previewing MotU last summer (it worked fine back then), and when I tried running it I got this waiting-to-connect problem. So I did battle with Pando and emerged victorious, re-downloaded the install files on Friday night, and used them to run an installation repair on my pre-existing client. It resulted in no change - still wouldn't connect. And a full uninstall and reinstall is the same too. Won't connect.

Then it would seem that something with the current download file with the new Lamannia build is definitely causing the issue.

Add me to the list. I fired up my MotU preview install from last year (expecting it to update to the latest Lamannia build) but no luck. It is stuck on connect like many others. Could it be a DNS issue? What servers do we hit for lamannia?

When Turbine lost their address and people had to modifiy their host file, did people go back and undo the changes?

I know I did, however, I noticed last night my event logger showing critical issues that it could no longer access the host file. I don't know if that is Turbine related or MS related as apparently one of their patches (1 or 2 days before Lama got updated) is so screwed up they want people to uninstall it. Seems to be interacting baddly with certain antivirus programs if I spent the 5 seconds looking at that correctly.

I think this is the issue. Prolly a Pnado thing. IIRC there was issue with this and people needed to disable their firewall and update java in order for it to download and run properly.

As an experiment, is there a way the previous install packet could be added? The Pando issue can be worked around by completely turning off the proxy settings, which leads us to ask for another NON-Pando way to get ANY client.

Might I suggest sir, that if you have a fix to either PM Cordovan with the extra issue you discovered, or in one of the numerous threads about the issue post what is causing the issue. This could possibly lead to a quicker resolution instead of another third party fix. Not saying that you are not trustworthy; however, with it being a Turbine product, it should be a Turbine solution that is released to the public

they have already corrected the problem but it could take a while to get passed down to the end user. I have also created micro installers but I don't think they would approve. the micro installers result in a less them 20MB installer download that self updates to full with out any need for PMB or anything.

Is it possible that they changed where the Lamannia server is? This is the line I have in my turbinelauncher.exe.config file....

Is this the same line for those that are able to connect?

After filing a Tech support ticket stating that Live client works, issue is purely with Lamannia, here is what I have. Please educate me why I would have to jump through these hoops if one of the products does work and one does not and they use the same resources?

Thank you for your request. As a test please perform the steps outlined below to refresh your internet connection completely, and note any results or changes:

Start by power cycling your router and/or modem by unplugging them, wait 10 to 20 seconds, then plugging them back in
Once those have reset themselves click on the "Start" button and then click on "All Programs"
Choose "Accessories"
In the menu, find the "Command Prompt" icon, right-click it and choose Run as Administrator. If this option is not listed, simply left-click the command prompt icon instead.
On the Command Prompt window that pops up, type the command below exactly as it appears, hitting the enter key afterward:

ipconfig /flushdns

When that command finishes there should be a message of "Successfully flushed the DNS resolver cache", at which point please reboot your computer and upon re-entering Windows, and test again to see if the issue persists.

If after typing in the ipconfig /flushdns command and hitting enter you do not see the success message, or if you received an error, ensure that you typed the command exactly as it appears above.

Once you have reset your connection as detailed, note in a reply if there was any effect on the issue, or if any came up during the process and we will gladly assist with additional troubleshooting steps.

Thank you,

It is a "cost savings" solution in so far that they do not need to retain people that understand how the software works to fix it, let alone pay people to develop a solution when a COTS already exists.

This is beyond frustrating and disappointing. I want to get in test things out and give some feedback. Any eta on when the droves of people (not everyone reads the forums and an even smaller minority actually posts on the forums) that are itching to test things out for the developers might be able to get in?

On a side note, noticing there has been absolutely no movement on this issue in almost a week.... Anyone out there that is able to get in happen to have an older version of the downloader/installer they might share with the rest of us that are locked out of Lamannia? Pretty Please?

Unfortunately, this is directly related to the Pando issue. We are working with Pando to get it fixed.

I know this situation is very frustrating for everyone, and I want this issue to be sorted out as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, it is not something I can personally solve. I will keep you updated as I find out more.

We have also decided to keep previously viewed Class Enhancement Trees available as we preview the new trees. Hence, for Thursday's build, you will have access to Druid, Favored Soul, Rogue, Sorcerer, and Wizard as well as Artificer, Cleric, Fighter, and Ranger. (And then access to all trees for the last week of the Enhancements Alpha Preview.)

Since we are waiting on Pando, bad business decision by the way, can you give Brickwall permission to post his fix on the forums? After all, you are wanting as many people providing feedback on the enhancements as possible, right?

For legal reasons, I'm sure they can't give that permission or endorse it in any way. Even though it works.

My mailbox is overflowing with requests and thanks so i'm just going to post the fix and so be it what ever they want to do to me about it.

Instructions:
This patch is a self extracting rar it is a silent installation it extracts the files directly in to the default installation folder.
If you did a custom install you can either extract it with WinRAR or go the default folder and move the files by hand.
The default installation path : C:/ProgramFiles/Turbine/DDO Unlimited(Preview).
The files contained within the patch are nothing more then the latest known working launcher files.
The download it self is hosted by media fire you may notice a lot of ads on the download page be sure you look carefully for the real download link in the box with the mediafire logo and the file name.
I think this about covers any problems users have experienced so far.
Side notes : I've personally been able to extract and completely patch the client in place on my desktop. I have also created a copy for DDO live.

I hope the appropriate people know that there have been a number of messages in the Tech Assistance forum and a few in the General forum that describe issues with the Live client as well.

I was concerned that new users trying to download DDO for the first time might be turned away. I'm glad that it's being worked on and I hope that if its the same thing as Live, that it wasn't just the Lammania issue that brought it forward.

you could unzip the patch and apply it manually your self to the client.
the only possible problem I could imagine is the patch was not applied generally this means you did not install to the default installation folder.
this being the case you will need to either move the files it installed to the default folder or unzip it and do it by hand.

For some reason it would not work for me either, even though the file appeared to be in the correct path (maybe a Windows 8 issue?)

Anyway, unzipping it with Stuffit and moving the files manually worked fine.

Thanks Brick!

Yup my Lamannia was in the (x86). I got the 64 bit WinRAR and extracted the the files (selecting the C:\Program Files(x86)\Turbine\DDO Unlimited(Preview) folder as destination. The extracter asked if I wanted to replace files so I said yes to all. Still no joy alas.

I still suspect my own competence rather than any other problem however.

I suspect other factors are at work on your computer as if you where to extract the patch to your desktop and run the launcher from the folder it should by all rights patch it self fully and work in place as it has in all my tests.

According what I have been told by Tech support and various others is that this is the third party issue: Pando. So not only does it not download correctly, something within the core files is also corrupted. Now because this is a third party they cannot give any estimates on time to having this issue corrected. With that said, use any means necessary to be able to log into Lamannia as we need all the available eyes for feedback as possible.

My work around is far more then a simple fix what is contained is the complete launcher/updater for DDO by all rights it should have no trouble patching it self completely. The launcher/update it self is small the game files are the large part of the client it will take a while to patch fully but it will. I have run several tests and in all instances it was able to be extracted to the desktop and run from the folder fully patched and I logged in to the game with out issue. turbine should offer a similar package that would install just the launcher and then download the game files from there it would stop a lot of problems from happening.

In Linux you will need to use the pylotro package to replace the launcher and you will also need wine.

I've found a new fun way to not get connected to Lamannia. So I was on it, and computer needed a restart due to an update. I logged out of Lamannia and now when I try to log in, "No subscription for DDO found"

Now this is puzzling as I was just on it, AND I log into the regular client at the same time this error shows. So..... this beta testing was not serious, it was more just an exercise right, because all these issues have been beyond ridiculous. What do we want to bet we WILL see at least one of these issues at launch.
