    Default Middle of the Week with Major Mal

    Hey folks. It's been a while. I've been cleaning up from the last year, getting set for the next and came across a list of bugs that came directly out of the forum. I had them marked as 'the bugs that annoy players', and now I've decided to share with you the list of what we fixed and what the community thought at the time were the worst bugs in the game. Always interesting to look back and see where we were at about this time a year ago. Guess people were pretty annoyed with Madstone

    I would like to continue this now tradition with you fine folk and not so fine folk by telling us your most hated bug. Lag or Ladders, Loot or launcher...whatever it may be. Help us help you and all that.
    A couple of other things: Sox won the World Series, and the Pats...with the worst team they have had since 2006 made the AFC Championship game

    and Payton still stinks.

    The worst bug I can remember was the one that made characters loose all their fortification and other attributes for unknown reason (going uncentered caused it 100%, but non-monk players reported it too), shortly after U14 (aka MotU).

    String table error is annoying. Why aren't those gone?

    *bugs*

    My least favorite bug was/is(may not be fixed yet), characters casting quickened spells that somehow don't get cast. Used to primarily happen when my arti or fvs cast bladebarrier. Nothing more annoying than having to get beat on for 5 seconds while waiting to recast it.

    I'd like to be able to swap in and out of characters without logging completely out of the game. I don't know what the cause is but it lags more and more each time you switch between characters.

    Things that bug me:

    Wail of the Banshee lost it's sound when it was changed. It used to have a cool wailing sound but now is silent.

    PLEASE look at this post of inconsistent annoying UI/NPC elements!

    Poison traps doing dmg.
    Ladder bug.
    Red connection on first log in.
    If you die with madstone rage on you, when getting rez you will die again if you dont wait 2 min for the buff to expire, even though you died and should no longer have the buff on you.

    The buffer overflow errors caused by unclean code/poor looping effects.

    Off the top of my head;
    Opening/Attempting to Open the Epic Destinies window with points spent into it/twist of fate points earned spamming the client with 'do not do that' errors that follow them around until a character relog.

    The portals in Devil Assault when a new wave starts up the prompting text is repeated once per party member per portal with in range?

    Baktor in Devil Assault enters a perpetual teleport loop that causes extreme lag when there are more than 3 people in the quest.

    Healing Aura on the Nesting Scorpions in The Claw of Vulkoor causes game halting lag when there are large numbers of them (>5 for one player) but exponentially worse with more players?

    Gargoyles Aura, when more than 6 enter the aura at one time with one player in the dungeon lag begins, worse with more players in the instance.

    The biggest bug that should be fixed, in my opinion, is the double log in bug. It doesn't effect me, but for players who are affected and don't know the workarounds, it's like telling them to just go play another game. VERY bad for business. I'd make fixing that top priority. The fact that there actually is a user made fix that hasn't been incorporated into the launcher is just face palmingly frustrating. The fix is right there, yet you probably lose players every day because it's not an official fix.

    After that, I'd focus on exploits. I'm not going to name them here, but they really need to be cleaned up. There are at least 3 that I'd consider game changers or unbalancing.

    Once you get people able to log into the game and have the exploits in check then please fix the epic destiny bugs that still remain more than a year after release. The "momentum swing/lay waste" timer issue is particularly annoying for me.

    Greater Heroism from sources other than the actual spell not giving fear immunity is another annoyance.

    Optional xp ransack is not properly resetting. This is most notable in EVoN 3 and EWK where the optionals make up a large portion of your potential xp.

    Get held/slowed w/o a save. This dont make the game harder, just makes it annoying.

    And for the love of Gandalf fix the dc in the first login, this makes me want to kick babies in the face.

    Um, probably a stupid question, but what is "JBUG"?

    Yes, please, this is near the top of my major gripe list. I have submitted a report with pictures, showing combat log in the SubT. It is easy enough to test in Amrath or SubT (a little harder in CitW). It negates glancing blows if the good DR is high enough.

    Strangely, I have two weapons that should not break good DR, yet do on certain mobs (orthons & barbazu, but not the white outsider lions, all requiring good to break DR). So perhaps there is a subtle, poorly understood issue here. (FYI those weapons are the Elemental GA of Fire and Skybreaker -- the only commonality I can see here is they are both mithral 2-handers).

    Shall I resubmit these as new bugs?

    Hello Major Mal!

    Please read this small post I made couple of months ago:
    https://www.ddo.com/forums/showthrea...till-not-fixed

    There is also a lot more Cleric clickies that halt movement now that those in my posts.

    Thanks!
    Follow me if I advance. Kill me if I retreat. Avenge me if I die.

    Losing to Manning just saved your Pats the humiliation of getting dumptrucked by the Hawks in the Super Bowl.
    I've met and chatted with both Dave Arneson and Gary Gygax.
    To both of you, I raise a glass in toast and say THANK YOU!
    There are other ways and OTHER FORUMS, PM Strakeln for details.
