    Default Unable to connect to Lamannia: "Waiting"

    Did not see this posted here yet (although I will admit to having weak Search-Fu), so I wanted to make this official.

    From this thread: http://forums.ddo.com/showthread.php?t=414877

    Myself, and apparently a few others, have been having trouble connecting to Lamannia. Client downloaded and installed, but it will not connect and update to the latest build. This has been ongoing since 4/12/13. Screenshot below.



    Hope to get some feedback as I am eager to try out the new enhancement alpha.

    Thank you.

    EDIT: Firewall permissions have been verified, and no issues logging in to the live game servers are being encountered.

    This is a Turbine issue, not user issue. Too many reporting this, and no response from Turbine at all. I know of at least a score of people with tech support tickets in. Would be nice to have Turbine show some care/concern that people wanting to assist them in providing feedback are unable to even load in to the server.

    Suggest downloading a fresh copy and reinstalling.

    Bad advice. People with the new download are the ones having the issue.

    Previous installed client or did you download since the new build was released?

    I haven't got the new download and also have the same problem. Unless the "new" download is older than I think.

    Do you happen to remember when you download?

    It is just a theory at this point, everything seems to be related to the new build of Thursday, at least that's when the complaints started.

    Default Real old download

    My download is real old yet updated last week.
    Been on lam so long I have like over 300,000 free Turbine points from Sir Pointsalot.
    Now a month or so back I had to do a complete computer restore from an external back up thanks to a windows update that messed up a bunch of stuff. That back up was a year old and had lam on it.

    Thank you. So it is something about the recent download.

    I have the same issue. I get the waiting just like the screen shot in the first post.

    So I tried uninstalling and downloading a new copy. I can't connect to the server. I get an error message stating that my computer may be blocking the PMB.exe (Pando Media Boost) but Pando is already set as an exception in my firewall.

    I can cannot to the live servers without issue, but I am not able to connect to Lamannia and now I cannot download a new copy of it.

    Nothing new to add, but just to keep this fresh in the minds of whoever fixes this type of thing, I'm also having this issue.

    Found it for you. Or actually for myself, but I'm willing to share.

    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.

    Download Link : http://www.mediafire.com/?u22181q40m8g8kj
    Pando suddenly worked and I managed to download the game. Not sure what changed but, yay.
    Sadly this fix doesn't work with my copy, perhaps something has changed in the meanwhile, or my computer is bonkers. It has worked for a lot of people before the updates, so I hope it does work for you.
