Whacky Inactivity/Disconnect message

Discussion in 'UHall' started by Old Man of UO, Aug 6, 2009.

  1. I'm training a new cu sidhe for sale, and had it fighting a shadow ele. I used discord on my pet and had to constantly heal her to keep her alive. Every five minutes or so I would get a message saying something like "You have been inactive too long. You will be disconnected in one minute..."

    I'm thinking, what the heck... I am casting enough to get a cramp in my wand! So I move over one square and start casting again. Every few minutes the message pops up.

    NOW I am training my pet in a different dungeon, not having to cast at all, not moving but mounted (I was unmounted before) and it's going on 30 minutes without getting the inactive message. How does this thing work?

    BTW, I am using SA client if that matters.

    Make a petition. They never answer so it'll be flashing forever and you won't have the message ever.

    Seriously? Like a help petition or what?
     
  4. Make a petition? I am not sure what that means.

    But my question was, why do I get that message on foot, but on my mount (ethy horse) I don't?

    No idea on SA client but with good ole 2d, you need to use an item to stay equipped or have "names" pop up on your screen.

    When using an item, it can be opening your backpack, opening your paperdoll, opening a runebook, etc.

    "Names" popping up on screen is why people can unattend train on golems in luna and not get banned for unattended:coco::coco:

    Page/petition/query...

    I'm just pissed off because they weren't able to send me even an automated reply. And it works, it's been flashing on all my characters.

    its new. happes with kr too.
    certain things dont refresh the client. like casting some spells. healing. even just standing talking. there are a few more.. i think its an anti afk thing. to gain skills easy you can make some macros repeat alot of times but it will still log you out if you dont move so you cant just stand afk.

    When you switched dungeons, did you switch prey as well? Or is your cu sidhe still training on a shadow iron ele?

    Make sure you post this in the SA client forum, please. It is being monitored by Mythic. Thanks.

    You may have already... I just have not been able to get of UHall since I got home. *smiles* Interesting day.
