[BUG] SA Client Hangs on Startup

Discussion in 'UO Enhanced Client Discussion' started by jerkstore, Aug 12, 2009.

    I've successfully patched and all that, but once I hit the play button nothing happens.

    If I look in my process list in Task Manager, I see UOSA.exe running taking up 25% of my CPUs (running a dual xeon so it's maxing out 1 of 4 cores). It's been stuck that way for 45 minutes now, figured I'd keep it running in case it eventually woke up...

    Anyone else seen this?

    When it checks for a patch, and there is a patch, it would take a little while before it starts, but 45 min? Something is weird.

    It's actually after that, the patching completes successfully and I hit "Play" on the dialog after patching finishes - that's where the hang happens.

    I get hangs at startup - UOPATCH.BIN runs and nothing happens then the splash screen shows up 30m later - every time.

    Checking the log I constantly see errors about "does not match expected size", "failed to download", "Failed to receive HTTP response for file" blah, blah. It eventually downloads the files but takes around 24 hours.

    Before anyone asks my Internet connection is fine - only UOSA has issues.

    Tried re-installing a few times - same crap every time.
  5. Not sure if this helps you or not, but I have two icons to play the Enhanced Client. One connects to the uopatch.exe and the second connects to UOSA.exe.

    I use the first one whenever a patch has been issued, and it does take a long time to load. The second one bypasses the patch and I use for normal play... much faster load times!

    I know this is basic stuff but it's often overlooked..

    Have you scanned for spyware/adware/viruses etc?
    Is your firewall behaving properly?

    Stuff like that.

    I've re-installed for the n'th time and this time it seems OK. I still got a few "Failed to receive HTTP response for file" but generally it installed cleaner and seems to work - at least it starts quickly.

    Maybe I've just been unlucky - I knows the Warhammer guys had a whole heap of issues with this new patching system when Mythic started using it.
