Known Issues

From OriginsRO wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Contents

Client

On some computers, the client doesn't start on the first attempt after installing it.

Workaround
Run the launcher as administrator, or just try again.
Fix
A fix is in progress.


Taking a screenshot makes the client freeze.

Workaround
Minimize and restore the windows to make it unfreeze, when it happens. Or just switch to another window and back to the RO client.
Fix
No fix known yet


Game

The /organize, /invite, /guild, /guildinvite commands do not accept names with a space.

Workaround
For the time being, use the Party and Guild Setting windows to organize parties and create guilds.
Fix
No fix known yet


Some NPCs or warps may be missing, or some quests may not be completed.

Workaround
None known
Fix
We'll be fixing those issues as soon as they're reported, so just report them in our bugtracker. Please note that certain contents are meant to be available as part of a separate episode later on, we started from Episode 0.


Launcher

The launcher shows a - seemingly spurious - "Services: N/A" label in the server status column.

Workaround
Ignore it.
Fix
I'll have a meaningful value in one of the next versions. It's meant to show the online status of the login services (database, control panel, serverside components of the launcher.)


In the Detailed Patch Info window, the patch name is missing, and only "N/A" is displayed

Workaround
None known
Fix
Due to the way the patcher currently works, that information isn't available clientside anymore. A future version will query patch names on the server, while downloading the status information on startup.


Some buttons bring to a wiki page that does not exist.

Workaround
Either ignore them or write the page yourself.
Fix
Those pages will be written, gradually.


The launcher lacks certain keyboard shortcuts, or doesn't give automatically focus to the text fields to avoid clicking before typing.

Workaround
None known
Fix
They'll be added in one of the next versions, as I find out the behavior I'd like it to have. Right now, focus is given to the username field on startup, and by pressing Return it'll switch to the password field if it's not been filled yet, else it'll login.


In the Settings pane, it's possible to choose skins, but the setting has no effect in the client.

Workaround
None known
Fix
The OriginsRO skin hasn't been prepared yet, we're still using the Classic skin only. No matter what you select, you'll see the Classic skin during the Beta stage.


Other programs (patcher, configuration, etc)

The configuration tool is a little confusing, or doesn't work at all (and it isn't OriginsRO-branded.)

Workaround
In the bottom left corner, make sure the Lua icon is selected, and not the Reg one (colored=selected.) Lua is selected by default.
Fix
We'll eventually switch to an own configuration tool rather than a pre-packaged one. We could also edit out the Reg part from the current tool, as we have the source available and we could edit it, but recent Windows versions can't compile such an old application. It was apparently made on Windows 98 in order to work properly with the DirectX version that RO requires. We'll do this as a very-low priority task.


Website

Wiki

A lot of pages are missing.

Workaround
None known
Fix
It'll take time, but we'll be writing them. You can help, too.


Control Panel

The Skin switcher doesn't work.

Workaround
Only use the Peaceful Forest skin for the time being.
Fix
The same skins available on the website will be made available on the CP.


Forum

The bugtracker post layout is a bit confusing, makes it hard to find out who's the poster at a glance.

Workaround
None known
Fix
The page layout will be rewritten and improved, adding avatars and whatnot, just like in the normal forum posts.


The submit button is some times on the right, some times on the left, making it hard to find without reading.

Workaround
Read before clicking.
Fix
I'll improve the button layout consistency, it's driving me nuts, too.



Others

This list doesn't contain all the current issues.

Workaround
None known
Fix
Report it in the bugtracker, so that it'll become a known issue.


This list doesn't contain an issue I already reported.

Workaround
None known
Fix
Report it in the bugtracker, so that it'll become a known issue. Do not report privately. Haru tends to forget anything and everything unless it's written somewhere. And that's an issue that cannot be fixed, I'm afraid :(
