Champ Spawn Bugs

Discussion in 'UHall' started by Elendil Felegund, Feb 20, 2009.

  1. I guess the best way to present this is to list the bugs I’ve experienced and then the follow up questions.
    I have not seen any postings. So here are the bugs:

    Night Site bug – I’ve experience this only at the champ spawns. It sometimes occurs when moving from one area of the champ spawn to another. Sometimes no movement is involved. I’ve experienced this with all types of characters using all types of spells or items that give the night sight ability. The night sight ability simply goes away and I have to remove and replace my night sight item or recast the night sight spell but then I'll move again and its back.

    Recall\Sacred Journey Crash bug – Id say probably 75 percent of the time, my client crashes when leaving a champ spawn and going any where in Tram.

    Life Bar Pull Crash bug – Once in awhile I pull a life bar of something I want to shoot at (Archer) and my client crashes.

    The questions are:

    How many are experiencing these bugs? I know a few besides myself that are.
    Is something being done to address these issues?
    Has anything been posted concerning these, that I might have missed?

    One final thought and this is a good one so I’d like to know if anyone is experiencing this issue. This happens when I am using a mage, casting spells such as mind blast. I cast the spell, target the lizardman or what have you and then proceed to move away to distance myself and almost always I have some kind of lag feature. It’s almost as though I’m not through casting the spell and cannot move my character because of it. It’s also kind of like the rubber band effect when trying to go in to a house that has been selected as private. Because I’m stuck, can’t run off for a split second and then the next thing I know I am way farther away from the spot I’m trying to run from than I should be. Like I teleported there. Has anyone experienced this at all?

    Those are all real bugs. The only one with a work-around that I know of is the recall-crash bug (caused by people dragging items the same time that you recall/gate away), and that's walk out of the spawn area then recall/gate away.

    Report the bugs, keep complaining about them, maybe sometime they'll get fixed.

    As for the recall issue, I've not experienced that but it may be due to a RAM overload with all the spawn. UO2d has had a long standing memory leak. Before you recall out, minimize and then bring back up the UO client. This will "bandaid" the leak and might help prevent client overload.

    Night Sight bug: ALL the time.

    Recall\Sacred Journey Crash bug: Exactly what Farsight says, move away and you'll be ok.

    Life Bar Pull Crash bug: Never seen this one, and Im pulling bars constantly.

    Targeting Delay bug: Ive seen this one too, but only after clicking on a bar itself to target something. After that initial spell, using last target never has a similar delay.

    To avoid any confusion the two crash bugs mentioned are actually one in the same. Anytime someone (you or anyone else) is dragging an object there is the potential to either crash or be crashed. This includes gates, recalls, and teleporters.

    For further clarification, this bug has been around for over a year...nothing new to see here.

    The nightsight bug? Use the earrings, spell, or pots to counter.

    An elf should have no need to counter, therin lies the problem.

    That being said nor should a human with nocturn earrings on.
  8. You forgot to mention which client you are using. I assume these are all 2D bugs?

    let me add to your list real quick ..

    'special' loot drop's = non existant still(champs are feeling to much like another lady mel re-run constantly do and get no crimey)
    scroll drop' 1 in 4-5 spawns if lucky (spawns meening from begining when it pops to when the boss dies )
    heath bars not going off screen when something dies... other than players .. grrr .. needs to be reversed.

    really wish things looting you when you die was a bug , but alas i know better :p still alot of people would like to see this removed.

    getting 'stuck' in trees..etc..
  11. How do you consider the loot drop rate a bug?

    The "special" loot wouldn't be special if you got one with every champ. They don't happen as often as we wish, but I have several. Certainly not a bug.

    The health bar... ya, still buggy. Also add that sometimes the critters spawn at Z +1 level and aren't targettable.
  12. Yes, it is the 2D client that I am using. Thanks guys for all of the input.

    what are these nitesite earrings called??

    I used a pair of night site boots, they had 100 charges and after 30 mins of playing all charges gone.

    if you took the boots off, you lost the nite site effect.

    Logging off when someone is dragging stuff causes crash too.

    *raises fist and curses the night sight bug*

    It doesn't matter if you are an elf or have jewelry or armor on with night sight...you hit certain spots and not always the same spots at champs and it is so dark you feel you've stepped off the face of Sosaria.

    We have a running tag line after defeating the champs:
    That was fun, time to crash!

    I agree, however I believe UO's resources (staff) are better off concentrating on game crashing bugs rather than bugs that are just a simple (yet workable) annoyance.

    This game crashing bug is part of the big duping culprit...and will remain as such until it is fixed. Unfortunately for this particular bug, you wont see a fix until the release of SA and the demise of KR. (**hint hint**)
