Would you PLEASE fix that LFG bug already!!

The Ice Mage.4879

Thanks for the great description of how this bug is happening Whitefang! I’ll pop the hood and see what’s going on.

Glad to see some is getting on the case for this. I’ve just kind of accepted it as how it is for the time being since a long time ago lol and try my best to remember to:

  • Open LFG textbox to repost
  • Type description
  • CTRL-A, CTRL-X
  • Post LFG
  • Ninja edit, CTRL-V, update

Works pretty nicely provided you’re fast enough heh, but certainly it would be much better if LFG just worked as intended.

Fancy Furniture coins question

Sweet, nice to know it’s staying around.

oh didn’t see that response yet. Cool. Now if only they could get rid of the kitten confirmation window. Took way too many clicks yesterday to get through a stack of the coins.

As someone who has exchanged over 1000 coins since the start of the event, I second this.

I agree too lol…I don’t think I’ve done quite that many but my guild has 808 clouds or so now heh and safe to say most of them came from myself and my gf.

Ditto, even though I appreciate the suggestion, I really don’t want to use a BETA client. Get it in final and I will use it. I never had DC before unless there was an ISP problem. It really does need to be fixed. Maybe I wouldn’t care too much if I could restart and rejoin my squad, but even that didn’t work. Or I didn’t have wait so long for the event to start again. In this instance today it seemed the entire map and everyone on it was gone. Just me changing to a beta isn’t going to fix that. I really am not convinced that the problem is on the customers side in this instance at all. Since a patch appears to have made it happen more (OPs’ post), I highly doubt it.

Yea, while of course no one can force you to use it as it stands, like Kindeller said the 64-bit client really seems to have been doing pretty well since its public beta release. I really don’t think I’ve had any issues in-game since switching to it that could be chalked up to the fact that I was on the 64-bit. The only thing I remember off the top of my head, and this was probably a month or two ago if not more now, is just one time there was something wrong when a new update came out and the 64-bit client was stalling towards the end of the download or something of the like, for everyone using that client. Since then that issue has not reoccurred.

Something also worth mentioning though is that you don’t have to lose your 32-bit to try out this one; from what I recall you can just throw Gw2-64.exe in your folder inside Program Files(x86) and run it so it downloads what it needs to. After that you should be good to go unless I’m misremembering, because you already have Gw2.dat in that folder and it will work fine with the 64-bit client.

The Ice Mage.4879

@Crystal Reid, you mentioned bug fixes and changes to address dupe reward issues coming but I have another question: Will there be a way to turn Ghostly Infusions into +7s so that they would be able to fit into fractal gear sets put together for max AR and whatnot? I mean I know that if someone had 150 AR and they swapped a +7 for a ghostly, being 2 AR short probably wouldn’t be a huge issue for if/when they did Fractal100, but still it’d be nice to know if you guys plan to make this upgradable.

Sooo, i’m french, sorry for my bad english.
Raids don’t be more easier ? It will stay “hard” and not accessible for player like me ?

Nothing like a second game mode in it ? For example : “Baby mode” (for players like me with rewards of normal dungeons(but in raids) and “Normal mode (actually raid)” ?

So bad, i will never play in this game mode never…

Well, that kinda depends on what “player like me” means to an extent I guess. But really, maybe you should look into ways to better yourself as a player (be it gear or your actual skill level) and find welcoming nontoxic people to help you out. People have posted on reddit very recently about being willing to help people (even if they have no exp. at raiding) to kill Vale Guardian, and even the other 2 bosses if it’s what people want at the time, as long as you are willing to listen and learn and aren’t ragey about it, etc. This is the reddit thread: https://www.reddit.com/r/Guildwars2/comments/46g0ii/do_you_need_help_to_kill_the_vale_guardian/

The OP there is offering to help people on EU and if you look for “softblackcarbon” in the comments, they and their guild are offering the same kind of opportunity on NA.

Adding Karma Cost to Items API

in API Development

Posted by: The Ice Mage.4879

The Ice Mage.4879

I’m not sure why, but for a lot of items there appear to be duplicate item definitions? They appear to be effectively the same but have a different id. No idea why they exist, but players probably have them (since they pop up in my whitelist) so I normally push ’em through.

As a good example: the 1-year and 2-year level 20 birthday scrolls. They’re effectively the same item, but they don’t stack because they have a different id. >_<

I guess it’s certainly not your department but, could you pass it on and see if there’s any chance of a fix for that lol? Kinda silly having those scrolls take up two spaces.

Weird bug in TA

in Bugs: Game, Forum, Website

Posted by: The Ice Mage.4879

The Ice Mage.4879

So I was doing TA forward path last night…and some of my party didn’t make it through on the first run skipping the few enemy groups to run into the tunnel with all the Volatile Blossoms, where further in a load of Nightmare Pups come out. I was hitting blossoms here and there to try and keep the place clear and then suddenly around when the remaining people made it to the tunnel, a blossom respawned right about where I was standing… Initially I think it was like many other “stuck-in-object” situations like e.g. an ice pillar at Claw of Jormag and maybe I could’ve gotten out if I managed to destroy the blossom. However, I unfortunately hit my spacebar and jumped, and for some reason the game saw fit to seemingly let me fall through the tunnel onto some little platform or other below. Then I kind of carelessly fell further to an area I can’t say I recognised; it seemed to be sort of, albeit not directly, below the bridge you run over before the tunnel and without waypointing (which I eventually did) I was effectively stuck on a little path between two of those “gates” like the ones Morrigu blows up at the start of the path. Beyond one there appeared to be a wintery/snowy looking area, or at least some trees there looked that way..

Not sure if this has been said already (because I’m not wasting my time reading 40+ pages of which probably upwards of 50% is QQ, not saying everything in here is unjustified but anyway, since I’ve already seen plenty to disinterest me in the 3-5 pages i did look at) but I think people complaining about the lack of char slot in standard should remember one thing if they haven’t already; perhaps this isn’t an ideal solution depending on how much you play and what you tend to do in the game…but realise that GW2 does allow you to exchange gold for gems so if you really want a char slot but don’t want to pay you can consider that option. So you’re by no means forced to buy deluxe to get a slot. Hell even if you’d rather spend cash than gold you can preemptively buy a slot now.

Arena net's definition of RMT?

Posted by: The Ice Mage.4879

The Ice Mage.4879

[…]

As for this:
“I am feeling lazy today, a ticket just in, another RMT appeal case, the system algorithm quite accurate, no need for further investigation, here down the ban hammer, say good bye to all your hard works, we don’t care what you’ve DONE or NOT DONE, after all, no loss on our side.”, is what i speculate is in concerned party’s mind.

What?

I think they are saying that some concerned parties worry that someone in ANet support, “feeling lazy”, might just reject an RMT appeal case (that is, someone alleging they were wrongly banned for RMT) just writing it off saying the system’s algorithm (for detecting RMT I guess they mean) is quite accurate. That’s what I gather from it anyway.

WvW Lag March 2015

The Ice Mage.4879

Well – here’s a thing. My ping is reported at 0 right now – in fact, since I joined this map. That makes me not trust that number very much! I’ll have to look into that. (Just remembered to screenshot it because no one at work tomorrow will believe it!)

Possibly (if only tangentially) related, I feel I should mention I have seen issues myself with 0 ping appearing recently enough although perhaps not even in WvW. It may have been right after moving from one map to another. I believe it was a week or two ago; I was on my university campus and the wireless was being a bit kittenty at the time, at the least for GW2 (and I have often been able to play out there with no issue) so I was lagging a lot for a while and dc’d a couple times and the ping display definitely showed 0 sometimes… so indeed as you said the ping display is something that should be investigated.

The Ice Mage.4879

Been a bit busy so forgot about this thread, but I’d like to post now that I remembered again. After further discussion with support I finally resolved the issue…according to the log generated by Speccy (I didn’t post it here) my Intel and Nvdia drivers were a bit out of date and when I updated it started working fine again.

What I still think was really kitten weird though was this:
So, as people suggested here I did a system restore to before the installation of the big amount of windows updates that seemed to break the game. Indeed the game started working again at that point but I decided I might as well go along with support and still update the drivers anyway. So I went with updating Intel one first and it wanted a restart to finish doing things but out of curiosity before restarting again I decided to test the game again (also after restart). Really, really weirdly at this point the game would not work again, on the Nvidia card which it of course defaults to running on but would run somewhat subparly on the integrated Intel. Thankfully everything worked as expected after doing the Nvidia update too, but that’s still kitten weird that it seems like updating the Intel broke support for Nvidia or somethin :/

Did they never get you to reset your settings? Delete the folder appdata/Guild Wars 2/ and the file Documents/Guild Wars 2/Local.dat (if it exists).

They never asked but I did and told them as much at one point in the exchange. Well actually tho Local.dat was in the appdata location as well.

Is there any related errors under the Event Viewer (application logs), found under Administrative Tools in the Control Panel?

I don’t see anything Gw2 related.

Is System Restore an option to go back prior to the updates?

…so I’ve been back and forth with some support agents now but I’m not giving up on them, I just thought I could post here in the hopes that someone savvier than myself, not from Anet, might be able to help while I’m in limbo waiting for the next ticket reply.

So here goes, I’ll try to explain the issue and everything I have tried without or without CS’s instructions…this could get long.

Something I would like to stress to keep in mind if you have any suggestions is that this problem comes only after playing GW2 on the laptop for a few months without issue.

My OS: Windows 8.1
The problem: Suddenly about maybe 5 days ago on this Alienware laptop of mine I let a bunch of updates for Windows install. It was pretty big as far as Windows updates go as I guess there was something of a backlog since I hadn’t used the laptop in a while. So that finished up I needed to restart to finish completely but I just thought to myself I’d go play GW2 and shut it down when going to bed or something, but then the issue first reared its head. I can load up the launcher just fine and log in, but when I hit the play button the game does not load to character select and instead in a matter of seconds (gleaned from looking at task manager) the process dies.
After trying a few times in frustration and realising it was not a weird one-off issue I decided to trying repairing the client with the standard procedure of shortcut with -repair option on it. Tried again when it finished, no progress. I then decided to try deleting the .dat file and redownload…still not fixed. Tried -repair again because idkwtfelsecanido :|

After some time, I sent a ticket in explaining as above and the first agent to respond asked me (somewhat routinely I imagine) to run the NCSoft GameAdvisor and send them the test result. Later another agent came back and asked me to try using msconfig to disable (non-essential) services and also to disable programs that would be said to run on startup and then restart. I wasn’t that optimistic about this but I tried and way and sure enough it did no good..
Next, they suggested to run MS System FIle Checker to check for corrupted/missing system files…but don’tcha know that reported no problems.
Then, at their request, I sent a logfile generated by HijackThis. The next time they got back to me they suggested I tried to force the game to run in windowed mode (-windowed), suggesting that if it did work in that mode it could indicate “[…] either a configuration issue in the games .ini files or perhaps an issue with the video card driver or even monitor configuration” but it still did not worked in windowed mode.
In the next reply they asked me to give details of my system hardware via the tool Speccy, and afterwards suggested my Windows User account could be corrupted and that I should test running the game on a brand new user account. So I did, and guess what? The game still doesn’t work, as previously mentioned. yayyyy..
Finally, they suggested to open IE (y’know, the browser) and turn on or off SmartScreen filter and said that “Should this not resolve the issue for you, please simply delete the Guild Wars 2 setup file, and try redownloading as the original installer may have been corrupted.” So since messing with that IE junk did no good, as much as I didn’t want to (since it didn’t sound like it would help) I uninstalled the game, downloaded a new Gw2setup.exe and let it redownload again. Thank the gods the broadband my family’s got has no horribad low usage limit :|

So that bring this up to date to now, where I am still waiting for the next reply on the ticket. As I said I am no giving up on the support agents but I want to keep my options open; given the oddness of this issue I guess it’s a little unlikely someone outside of Anet will manage to help resolve it…but it can’t hurt to try. If any players are going to make suggestions here feel free to ask whatever you need.

Should I update my Nvdia driver?

in Account & Technical Support

Posted by: The Ice Mage.4879

The Ice Mage.4879

If the game is running ok on the current driver then there’s no need to update. if you are looking to get a performance boost from the new drivers probliby will not give you much if any, so if it no broke don’t fix it.

/sigh Fair enough. I wish companies developing drivers n stuff could just get their kitten together so that we could live in an ideal world where it’s not going to be like

>See driver update available
>"Ooohhh…gotta be careful, this could wreck my gaming experience…and it’s not like my current driver is broken anyway."

But rather…
>See driver update available
>Install it without hesitation because at the least it will give a minor performance boost.

Honestly, it would be so much better if drivers could have smoother releases so that people don’t have the attitude of “if it’s not broken, why update?” >.> I mean sure, without software in general even, you almost never see 100% bug free releases..but at least with some other products like browsers (on stable releases) you’re typically not gonna get an update and suddenly find out that said update has somehow utterly ruined or killed your browsing experience.

As a final note I’ll just say in advance: I am a student with a few years programming experience soo yes I can but imagine how mindnumbingly complex low level programming such as for drivers might get (esp. when having to account for different platforms, machines etc.) so obviously I don’t think good driver programming is as easy as print(“Hello World”) :P I also can but imagine that those who code these drivers surely have years more experience in coding than me though, but tbh I doubt driver programming is something I will pursue so I will just say I don’t want any big lectures on the intricacies or challenges of it..

So I got a new Alienware laptop recently, here are the specs (pasted from order info email w/ some irrelevant junk deleted)

Base Alienware 14 Base
Operating System Windows 8.1 (64Bit) English
Memory 8GB Dual Channel DDR3L at 1600MHz
Video Card NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 750M with 2GB GDDR5
Driver Intel 802.11n/ac Wireless and Bluetooth 4.0 driver
Hard Drive 500GB 5400RPM-SSD Hybrid Drive
Wireless
Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 + Bluetooth 4.0
Processor 4th Gen Intel® Core™ i7-4710MQ Processor (6MB Cache, up to 3.5GHz w/ Intel® Turbo Boost)
Color Choice Anodized Aluminum
LCD 14.0" (355.6 mm) WLED FHD Anti-Glare Display (1920 × 1080)

So the problems I have noticed are the inability to do some combinations of actions…
I cannot
- Turn (i.e. change the direction I am walking in) while moving forward with W-key, default binding that I kept. I can turn while autorunning though.
-Move my cursor while walking with W or another directional key. Works with autorunning as above

Any ideas why this could be happening? :/ I would like to be able to play the game on my new laptop without such bizarre issues.

Remove (access to) this kittenING stupid spot from the map; IDC if you can apparently dodge jump to it, it’s a stupid convoluted, contrived way of elongating rounds. Besides, while of course SAB is totally unrelated, didn’t you guys say in relation to some SAB content in the past that you didn’t want to design things such that dodge jumping was a requirement, although it could still help in some cases?

I don’t think this is a bug, it is probably because of an old mistake some dev made lol. When they added Priest of Balthazar mini they accidentally put it in Set I, and when they noticed it was too late and/or they didn’t care. This meant that you could get the pre-wardrobe set I achieve with only 53 of the set I minis if you had the Priest too. The new achievement correctly requires all of set I though. I’m in the same boat as you right now…

As far as I can tell (I’m not 100% sure but it sure seems this way) if you complete Tequatl and open the leftmost “shaker” chest, which will be the exotic, you end up only getting 3/4 of the reward chests you should get because you do not get the rare one. This is a weird and annoying bug because it jips me out of some of my loot if I just happen to forget about the issue..

Hope you guys fix this soon. :/

Another in-game culture that is sensitive about their heritage is the Zephyrites. What common items do they have that would fit into a cylindrical container?

Aspect Crystals..? Although their commonness may be debatable…especially with (at least) 3 of their ships having crashed in Dry Top as of late.

My first reaction when opening the new Gem-Gold exchange UI was this:

“Ok, streamlined presets that make for easy one-click purchases; alright, not bad. Now how do I buy a custom amount of gems?”

I honestly thought I overlooked the button that lets me input a random amount of gems. That’s why I came to the forum to double-check.

So having a button “buy custom amount” added to the current interface would feel a lot more natural to me.

This this this. This seems like a perfect solution…please ANet “fix” it by adding this button.

Dammnit Anet, please fix Commissar and Foulbear, you put out the collection achievements, yet you still refuse to fix those two events. They always broke long before the collection achieves came out. Put some effort into resolving these two issues please.
Getting fed up with the lack a daisy attitude to two events that always break.

I agree it’s frustrating and that these two things are surely long overdue for fixing but sadly these things can happen often enough in large systems…and sometimes no matter how good your coding practices and such are, some bugs can be really hard to replicate or find causes for. Be it due to past screw ups having left a legacy or simply overlooking a slight detail that is important regarding how two things interact with one another or who knows what else.

Forgive me for bumping a nearly month old thread…but it’s only because I was going to post a thread saying the same thing.

Can we get an update as to whether this is being investigated/fixed on dev servers?
This is of course, like Ogre Wars and Dredge Commissar issues, another bug blocking Treasure Hunter progress. :/

I do hope these get fixed soon :<

I want a fair chance to get Sam and the Commissar’s Manifesto for the Treasure Hunter collection..
