Reporting issue from Downloaded version of SoD.

Computer: Inspiron 15 5000 Series Dell Laptop

Operating System: Windows 10 (version 1903); 64-bit operating system

GPU: AMD Radeon(TM) R5 Graphics Card

Details: I booted SoD normally and logged into my main Viking. I started Dragon Tactics while in the school by clicking on my Viking and clicking the Minigames Icon. Used the new dragons available (Screaming Deaths) and started the fight. As the fight started, I'm met with a chat box located in the center of the screen. I can still play the battle as normal, but it is definitely harder to see everything. I tried pressing Esc, Enter, and clicking the chat icon to no avail. The box will remain visible to cutscenes and while the fight is concluded.

I have tried restarting the battle, closing the battle, restarting the game, and clearing my Unity Cache, but nothing has worked. I relogged the game for the third time to see if the problem was the new dragons (I do not have the Thawfest update), using my basic three (a skrill, a whispering death, and a prickleboggle) and the chatbox is absent. I can only guess it is because I don't have the Thawfest update, I'm experiencing this issue.

Any other Details? Yah, I also can't exit Dragon Tactics after I conclude the fight, even if I have my usual Dragon Tactics trio. I click continue after the rewards menu and it end up loading forever.

Screenshots:

This picture below was taken on the first battle where I had all 3 of my Screaming Deaths.

This was taken on the second battle while I only had my Fireworm Queen present in the fight. Just like the first battle, the chatbox was visible and unclosable even in the cutscenes.

 

 

 

 

 

I haven't reported that I didn't get the Thawfest update earlier because I wasn't planning on participating in the Thawfest event this year. But if that means I cannot play and enjoy DT with my Screaming Deaths, then...

I don't play the game anymore. If I'm online, it means I'm just fool'n around :)

Biography

I have graduated the School of Dragons to join a ravenous war within a divided kingdom. With the knowledge I've gained in the school, I was able to tame dragons faster than many of my peers. The very same dragons whom I have lost in coming skirmishes by enemy dragoneers. My hope nearly withered away after countless defeats and empty victories. I grew weary of the sight of my peers' bodies spread across the meadows during the aftermath of such battles. However, I hence remembered the reason I've joined the Windguard is to protect the very land that is threatened by humans and dragons alike.

Meeting Skaldi

In the cicil war, we commonly fight dragon riders of the opposing force. But sometimes, we deal with neutral bandits which rarely have used such mounts. Occasionally, I get dispatched to different regions to help catch thieving bandits or deliver supplies to towns that got recently raided. I've met a lone Ironwing during an investigation to a small village in the Aldrün Desert. He was a wild Scorched Frontier dragon that carried a piece of armor in his mouth that helped identify which tribe of bandits that have raided.

Normal dragon training techniques I've learned at the school doesn't usually work with the dragons here, but not only did it manage to have the dragon drop the armor, but convinced the lonely dragon to help find and catch the bandits.

 

*Disclaimer: Basically, I quit playing SoD to play Century: Age of Ashes. This bio is completely imaginary and therefore comepletely non-canon to the lore of Century and SoD, but based on the experience I had with the gameplay in kind of a joking manner. Yes, I have created C:AoA lore with my character mixed with SoD for fun, no you cannot judge me.

Hmm

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think you have to re-press the speech bubble icon in the top right corner. Hope this helps!

-insert insipid subject here-

I did. That's what I meant by "I tried pressing Esc, Enter, and clicking the chat icon to no avail".

I was talking about that Chat Icon on the top right corner. I can click it, but it doesn't close the chat box. I still appreciate the suggestion though ^^

Aw

Aw, rats. I thought you meant the 'friends', 'clan', 'all' icons. I'm sorry I couldn't help, I hope it gets fixed for you really soon! Best wishes.
