to make it simple:
client disconnects from server on loading screen straight after char choice screen, i choose a char and game starts to load, when it does load, connection icon is red, showing no response from server side, few seconds later client closes saying that connection was lost. on lammania client its even worse as its 99% rate of disconnections, with live server being around 60%.
first time i seen it happen was on lammania server, update 12, it was not happening on live then yet, untill u12 hit live and its a CONSTANT source of grief for me, and ppl i try to run quests with.
i found few things about this problem, first thing is that there cant be any other software useing actively internet connection, any download or stream ends in ddo disconnecting, no matter if its a browser with some youtube video loading or an active skype, it disconnects.
recently i learned that game does not disconnect when loading first a lower lvl char with almost empty inventory, and then swapping to high lvl.
that way around a problem does not help much when ddo crashes on entering slayer area, or does other silly thing in middle of raid or other quest......
i tried LOTS of diffrent explanations of this problem i found on forums adn it does not help, checked firewall, reinstalled it, tried without firewall, all the same.......
only answer is that its ddo itself that does that but since there is no way to make a log of what happens in that time, cant find exact explanation.
any other online games does not do that, connection was checked and is stable enough.
