Troubleshooting F.A.Q.

Q: Why do I get "Failed to get 'xxx.rgz' or 'xxx.gpf'" when patching?

A:This is either caused by a busy patch server or a previously failed patch. Wait a few minutes and then try again.

Q: Why do I experience lag when playing?'

A: A good connection between client and server depends on the internet service provider (ISP). With a good ISP, lag is minimal. Sometimes, it is the server that is bogged down. In this case, others will experience the lag as well. Another possibility is not having the required hardware to run the program.

Q: My character is stuck. How do I become unstuck?

A: Using a Fly Wing or Butterfly Wing usually fixes this problem. If items are unusable log off and then log on. If the problem persists, restart the client. If this doesn't work, re-install the program and repatch. If that fails, contact a GM through the website.

Q: What is a Time Gap Error?

A: It is an error caused by packet loss, incorrect network settings, or incorrect BIOS settings.

Q: What does the "cannot init D3D or GRF file has a problem!" error mean?

A: It is an error dealing with graphics. Please verify that hardware requirements are fulfilled and drivers are up-to-date. Also, please be sure to have the latest version of DirectX installed. Running Windows in 16-bit color mode may also solve this problem.

Q: Help! I keep getting a "Failed to connect to server." message!

A: This problem is usually caused by a faulty connection between client and game server. First, make sure the internet is accessible. If the problem persists, the server may be down. Try again later and check the server status with sites such as this. As a last resort, contact a GM through the website.
