Ok, this has just started today and I have no clue why. I have been playing DDO for about a year now with no problems at all. Today I go to log in, and as soon as it gets to the 'Select World' area, it freezes and stops responding. I can't click anything, not even the X at the upper right corner. I have to close the launcher with CTRL + ALT + DEL.
Ok, I deselect the play in previous world in hopes that will help... nope. I try loading it up in compact mode... still nothing.
I reinstall that Net framework stuff.... nope. I do the windows updater... still nothing. I use various virus scanners to scan for viruses/adware... nothing...
I uninstall DDO and reinstall the darned thing...
I have turned off all firewall, virus protection in hopes that might work as well...
Guess what... it still isn't working.
Did something happen over night to the game or something to cause this to happen? I know the world works because two of my friends were playing on it when I was trying to log in.
I am running Windows XP
Does anyone out there have a clue as to what I can do to fix this?
Full desc of what is happening in order of steps:
1. double click DDO icon on desktop, launcher starts. Everything gets green check marks and it goes to the log in screen. I enter in my username and password and click Log In. It now goes to the World Select Screen. The launcher has stopped responding, I cannot click on anything on that screen. My mouse moves over the top, but nothing happens. The worlds all have a greyish white diamond shape next to them that is pulsating in the center. There is no world status, there is no recommended world.
I have left this going for around 30 minutes or so to see if it would do anything and it doesn't.
