Ran new SOD Update; Two PROBLEMS: Incomplete install?? No Ship at any Battle Events!!

 

I started my SOD game last night and I was told to update my account. I confirmed acceptance of the update by saying YES to the game agreement form and by saying OK to download and install. 

 

PROBLEM 1. Not sure if the install was really completed, even though it said Download Completed 100% on the game sign-in page. I signed in and then the update started loading more changes, I waited until it again said it was 100% completed, and then I clicked on play. Most everything seems very okay. I like many of the changes. Verry Nice! However, when I got off full screen mode, to checked my computer clock, I discovered a second Game icon, sitting on my Start Menu Taskbar, which opened up a small window that said it was installing the new 'update.' Thinking the update was completed, I attempted to close the box, but then it asked me if I wanted to abort the install of the update. I said No, not to the abort. (Later, I tried to get a snipped of the image, but that failed, when the little window closed; it may have happened when I logged off the game.)

PROBLEM 2. This is a game problem, which I did not have prior to the update installation.  When I go to a Battle Event, I cannot see the Ship at all. I see players gathered around where the ship might be, but not sure; it looks real confusing and was unable to capture a snip image of any of the battle events. However, I did note my target icon does not appear at any time during the battle and without a target icon, I had nothing to shoot at. When I did shoot, my shots went straight through where the ship should have been.

Ugh

Ever since the new update got installed, I can't play in MMO anymore. The game crashes and it says "School Of Dragons has encountered an error and needs to be closed"
This is slowly getting annoying. I spent real money on this game, so I expect it to at least work. Not even gonna start about the absolutely horrible update.

You're not the only one who can't see the ship at battle. I can't see it either. I've heard that this is a pc users only problem. I hope it's resolved soon.

 

Just a piece of friendly advice: Never click off that little box that says it's installing the new update. I made that mistake once and then I couldn't get on the game because the installation wasn't complete. I couldn't delete the folder that had all the information for SoD in it either because I had corupted the installation and it kept telling me I needed permission from the adminstration to delete the folder. I then had to install the game again and make a completely new folder for it. The installation will complete and the box will disappear once you close out of the game.

About Me:

 

The first and most important thing you should know about me is that I'm one of Jehovah's Witnesses. I enjoy studying the Bible and learning from it. I live by Bible standards and strive to apply Bible principles in my life everyday. Of course, I'm not perfect and would never claim to be. However, when I make a mistake I learn from it and try not to repeat it. I apologize when neccessary and accept correction where it's needed. I happily talk about my religion and beliefs with others but I don't force it on them. If they aren't interested or tell me they don't want to talk about it, I respect that.

For more information on Jehovah's Witnesses, for answers to your Bible-based questions, or for information on a varity of topics, some of which  include: animals, countries, how to deal with bullies, how to have a happy family life, how to make real friends, and depression,  please visit jw.org.

Thank you for info, HPowers

I've been luck, so far, the game is playing well except for the battle event. I, too, hope the problem with the battle events will be resolved soon.

 

Thanks for the warning! I did not close the box, while playing after I installed the update. It appeared to close automatically when I exited the game, and it has not reappeared today. I'm taking that as a good sign that the installation was completed.

Battle events seem to be available, now! You

Battle events seem to be available, now! You might need to download and update program again.

 

I did two days ago, and I can see and attack the ship in battle events.

New graphics

Your computers probably cant handle the new graphics update. Plus I love the new update it looks more realistic and not so cartoon anymore. I'm happy. Plus the game was fun with or without the battle event.
