Yesterday I was finally able to upgrade my prehistoric PC and I've now started getting the old problems I was having a few months ago with ridiculously short forum auto-logout. I also have the DX10 problems with black charcoal background and half the UI thread tools missing (the layout is different so it might be an oversight in the coding of the UI for DX10?)
Well my old machine was Vista Home Basic 32 bit triple core AMD, each core running at 800 mhz. My new one is Windows 8 64 bit, quad core AMD with each core running at about 1100 mhz. I'm wondering if the forum timeout is related to clock speed somehow since that's the only real thing apart from my operating system that has changed.
Windows 8 is.. different. I've been spending all day wrangling with it to try and get it to a more classic type'o desktop setup rather than the website inspired tile interface thingy. Downloading DDO for the new hard drive and getting 2.8 meg a second. I'd like to give the DDO team a big thank you for getting the client/installer package setup sorted out after the horrendous mess it was in before; it's going like a dream right now.
Anyway I hope they can get the forum timeout problem ironed out soon as well as the DX10 problems. Hrm, I just clicked the area below the text window near where the smileys are and the charcoal background changed to white, so that looks like it might be a highlighting problem.
W00t, DDO ready to install
