Friday's Patch

Postby Goofydoofy » Sat Feb 12, 2011 5:49 am

So, any patch notes? I don't see anything where it should be. As often happens, SoE is to just stupid to have any information dissemination.

Pretty sure it was an emergency patch to fix some stuff that was broken with the last one. They never do patch notes on those because they don't like to broadcast their mistakes but I read that they did something that was causing a lot of lag for some people and made the game unable to run on Windows 2000 computers.

I was having problems earlier in the week after the first patch with timeouts, got kicked out once and connection bar ran down low several other times.

If there was a mistake inregards to the win2k stuff it on the people who use it still. It is no longer supported by Microsoft. From what I understand this will probably be one of the last times EQ attempts to support it.

I think XP SP3 will no longer be supported in 2014...so you got some time if you got the updates.

I tried that Tarvas, they returned her 5 mins later wanting a refund. Hate when I forget to add "as is" in the contract.
