[BUG] Character creation

Discussion in 'UO Enhanced Client Discussion' started by Wolfways, Jul 27, 2009.

    A week ago i bought the 7th character slot upgrade and was messing about with character creation when i accidentally created a character.
    So i waited a week, deleted the character and created a human mage that i actually wanted (Yes i did check before creating the character).

    Finally ingame i was ready to play when i realised that my human was wearing an elf robe. Of course my character is an elf...

    7 hours waiting for a gm later i'm told to report it as a bug...and that's it?!
    Now i have to try to complete the elf to human quest as i'm not waiting another week because the game screwed up :cursing:

    Never heard this bug mentioned before but check your race before playing a new character.

    Yeah, I posted about it a week ago or so lol. Human gives you Elven and Elven gives you Human currently in SA client. I tried several times on TC1 to make sure it wasn't me lol.

    Same thing happened to me. I talked to a GM about it - he told me to email the devs. Hope they fix this...really annoying that I have to wait a week to my a new toon.

    I'm working my elf char up a bit so hopefully i'll be able to do the elf-to-human quest in under a week :coco:

    You'd think that they'd get this fixed asap though...it's kind of important to get the right race, especially as you have to wait a week to do it again.

    What amazes me is there is no posted warning anywhere lol. A bug like that should be fixed fast, but there really should be something where people are able to see it letting everyone know that there switched for the time being. A Week or a one time deal quest, be a bad day for someone that decided later they wanted to switch back lol.

    Perhaps we need a "Warning: Before Using SA.." thread that mentions fundamentally screwed-up things like this, another timely warning being that it eats your character profile information.

    Tbh i don't think there should be a need for a warning...it should be fixed now!
    At the very least GM's should have the ability to change a new characters race until it's fixed.
    Waiting for a week isn't fun and the elf to human quest is way too hard for a new character.

    They have to patch these things on a cycle otherwise they'd be tearing down the client every day to fix things in a piecemeal fashion. Plus they'd be shooting memos every 5 minutes to QA.

    I think this is best atm giving others a warning about issues they have found.

    The Char Creation bug
    The Profile bug
    The Crashing from mounting a giant beetle with it's pack open bug.

    And any others people come across.

    /signed For a "Warning: Before using SA" sticky.

    Someone create me a thread along those lines with the major caveats bullet pointed, and I'll sticky it.

    Done, thread is titled "Warning: Things you should know before playing SA!" If there is a way to edit the title I think it would be better for it to say Warning: Things you should know before using the SA client!"
