Can't find Obsidian Ocean in the client Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

I came back to puzzlepirates after a long time away, and I've been messing about on the green oceans. Somebody told me about Obisidian at some point, so I went and installed the Steam client, made a pirate, and played a little bit.

A couple days later, I want to play again, but first I log into Meridian where I have my Labor Badge so I can play some distilling. I close the regular client and open puzzlepirates from Steam expecting to get Obsidian. Instead I get the new pirate screen. Clicking the 'I already have an account' backarrow gets me the standard list of oceans, and creating a new pirate put me on Meridian!

I don't see any way to get back to Obsidian now. I wanted to check out Obsidian, but not at the cost of never logging into my old pirates again, so... uh... help?
(I do guess I can probably get back to Obsidian if I purge all traces of YPP and reinstall the steam client, though I haven't tried it, and I'm not really interested in going through a process like that every time I want to just switch oceans.)

Thanks fer yer time me hearties!

Ah-hah. The pirate I created apparently wasn't on Obsidian at all, but on a regular doubloon ocean. (I'm not sure how or why, but when I launched the Steam client again, it didn't send me to the New Pirate Page, but instead showed me the pirate I created the other day. I suppose it would be good to reliably get to him but I don't care that much if he's on Meridian.)

Apparently there are two steam puzzle pirate clients, one for Obsidian and one for everything else.

I say this in case anybody else is in a similar pickle, mostly, but also so Filthyjake or anyone else can correct me if I still misapprehend the situation.
