Windows Screensaver Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

I consistently cannot return to the game from screensaver, even if I've logged out to the login screen. I have to reset the PC from the front panel.

Win XP, fully patched, standard YPP downloads.

I get a lot of freeze ups. I think that's partly our ADSL connection, but not always. Sea battle used to be a real problem for me, but if I type some stuff between duty report and getting into battle I usually make it. I often freeze up at each turn of the sea battle puzzle also, in gunning or nav; miss a turn or two and then it rights itself. I sometimes lag out in chat. And drinking sometimes I miss a turn or so.

I run Windows XP, and my computer is an Athlon XP. I thought it was 1.7, but its telling me today its 1.1GHz. :S

I get lockups if I change screen resolution while YPP is running.

I've never had a full lockup, but I've lost the ability to mouse click a time or two. Keyboard still worked, but it made targeting tough ;)

Aye, I have that problem with annoying regularity.

Mouse lockup, complete game freeze, can never view island maps(which makes getting around islands QUITE annoying, though no real effect at sea)...

Gotten quite annoying, it has.

I've found that the standard <ctrl> <alt> <del> works in that case.
It either breaks out of the screensaver and minimizes YPP, or if it's been too long it gives me the "This computer has been locked blah blah blah" at which time I can throw in my user and passwd and it brings me to my desktop with YPP minimized.

A quick tip that some of you may not know - if you start up a new client and log in, it will switch your game onto that window instead and exit you to the log-in screen of the original client window (especially useful if something doesn't seem to be working right at sea, like the mouse problem described by Yuriseal and Bran).
