    Default I have to sign in twice

    This has been going on for several months now, and I'm finding it quite frustrating.

    I play on a laptop, so at night I hibernate the laptop. Every time I want to play DDO, I have to log in twice.

    The first time, I sign in, choose the server, and then my character appears - but the subtle clue here is that my Drow mask is not visible on her. When I see the mask on her face - I know it's working OK. But at this point, all I can do is log in, and let the game load. But what ultimately happens at this point is that I hover just above the landscape, have a red connection icon, and get 0.00 bytes recv'd from the game servers. I abort the game, and then try the process all over again.

    On the 2nd attempt, it works just fine - my character appears with her drow mask on, and I know I'm now communicating with the server. I've been doing this for quite some time now. On the first step, if I try to shortcut the process - exit at the character selection screen, for example, it doesn't seen to start up some kind of process, which is apparently what I need in order to make it work correctly.

    Any advice here would be greatly appreciated.

    I have two laptops at home. One needs a double load, one doesnt. Both run windows7/64. The one that needs the double has a better processor, but less ram, no fancy videocard and a slower hdd

    Meaning its possible to fix it with hardware. Should you have to?....no. But you can

    This problem is solved for most people with the 'ddo preloader' a user here made and posted. The link is somewhere to the forums, and it has solved my issue with the dual logins completely, and I"ve been using it for a coupla months now, no problems.

    Thanks Santa!!

    OOmmgg I was so annoyed I wasted 2 hours other day so I raged here and finally I can get back on. Thank-you for posting the fix because I didn't want to bother the technical department because I wasn't sure if it was really a tech issue or I ****ed off some mod in the game cuz occassionaly one is raging in the game chat over something I said cuz some player named Acidx was pm'ing other day and said it's weird that I put 4 names of quests I wanted to do in my lfm instead of picking a quest and he kept pm'ing me so I said it in gen chat so people knew and then next day I couldn't log on so I had lots of theories why I suddenly couldn't play hehe.

    Great game and sorry for the rant but tech problems make me rage.







    Happy holidays!!
