    Default Thank you so much for U18P3!

    Dear Devs

    I know you guys take a lot of flak for not addressing quality of life issues. Therefore I wanted to take the time to say thank you so much for addressing (and as far as I can tell completely solving) my biggest quality of life issue, namely the log in process. Overnight my log in time went from ~10 min on a good day, to less than a minute. Because I often play short sessions, I think you guys just added ~10% to my active playing time and reduced log-in-related grumbling time to near zero!

    I saw some people complain that the new launcher isn't pretty enough. I guess that marks the first time in history, where addicts complain about the aesthetics of their proverbial needle...

    Go Team Devs!

    I'm not even about to complain about what it looks like. My goal with launcher screens is to spend a little time viewing them as possible, so mission accomplished. No more agonizing 10 minute logins, huzzah. Much obliged Devs.

    I'm guardedly optimistic on the load in issues, the reason why I'm not willing to say it's fixed is when it started I did a reinstall to try to fix it. It worked for about 3 days then the issue was back. If we're still loading in without the issue in a week they fixed it, saying it right now might be premature.

    Agree with you on this one OP. Also that it's so much easier for multiple clients. I no longer have to script.

    Same. It was working for one day for me, and now, its red disconnect icon again. And I have some serious connection issues (I didn't have before) as well. Keep on the good work, guys!

    I have to join the bandwagon, it has fixed the double and triple login required issue I was having the last two weeks or so. And I confess, I honestly can't comment on the look, I just type in my pword, hit my server, and am generally talking to the husband or reading a webpage while waiting, I don't really look at it or pay attention. But I get enough rants from Dre to be assured it must be ugly. LOL

    Yes it didnt work for me in fact it seems worse now....... and im not sure if its the update but my latency and lag has gone up quite a bit.

    But I guess i am happy that they are trying to address these issues and its working for some people.

    Last weekend, I upgraded to a SSD and 12 GB of RAM, and re-installed Windows 7 from scratch...

    Initial game load time is in the 10 second range now.

    I'm still getting the same red latency and disconnect on initial login. I don't know any other MMO that has this problem. It's a very bad first impression for newcomers trying out this game.

    I am still getting them, but they are less frequent than before.
    The problem is never how to get new, innovative thoughts into your mind, but how to get old ones out. Every mind is a building filled with archaic furniture. Clean out a corner of your mind and creativity will instantly fill it.

    ditto.
    first login after the update, brilliant. Entire login process was about a minute......since then progressively worse, this morning back to a 10 minute login with 3 restarts....

    That because during update, all important files are cached in Windows cache. Right after update loading phase can be very fast. Try it after clean reboot.

    This is the way, how ddopreload works.

    (extract into DDO's root folder and run it from it)
    PS: Requires min 2GB of the memory (aprx. 1.3GB discardable), otherwise it don't work
