Waiting for Character...

Nihimon
I have too, but it's rare, and I use Windrider a lot.

It seems to hit certain people more often. I can use charges every fight, and it never happens to me. My friends hardly use charges, and the majority of the time they do, they fall through the world.

There must be something that people are doing that specifically triggers it.

Then whatever it is, I've never done it. Ever. I've never seen the "blue screen bug" (although I've fallen through the world enough times in Alpha to know what it looks like).

And I use feats like Footwork (20m evade to self) a LOT. Even when I was using a short sword with Balestra (10m charge), I hadn't run into then, either.

Perhaps it's connection-speed or latency related?

Have you used it in non flat terrains like Swamps, hills and mountains on a regular basis?

I have. I semi-regularly (or at least I was semi-regularly) charge people on the mountains in the SE. I also semi-regularly charge monsters on ZKM. No fall-through-world.

The evades like Footwork, most definitely. It usually just flings me up the hill. The charge on Balestra? Unsure, it's been a long time since I've used it last.

I only mention the connection/latency, as my ping to the server is typically between 50-60ms, and my connection speed is very decent ( 80/8 ).

For the record, I was standing in Marchmont near the Tutorial NPCs last Sunday, like I do every weekend, just waiting for someone to ask for help or need a question answered, and my character bluescreened and went to "Waiting for Character…." No input from me whatsoever.

It's a disturbingly weird bug.

The game was predicting that you were going to charge or evade at some point, and decided it would be best to just bluescreen your character preemptively. smile

For what it's worth, I've never, ever had the blue-screen-bug when using any form of Evade.

I have.

I have not during EE 7. I have on previous versions.

Just thought I would let you know I just blue screened while fighting the new elementals. I got pushed around plenty by their spells without mishap however after some hours of fighting them they eventually pushed me into the terrain. It looked just like when I run into the Charge bug.(sorry pun) Just a few minutes until the script runs luckily. smile
