Characters do not show in Game
« on: October 03, 2019, 01:33:06 AM »
Hi there folks,
Totally new, first time on.  No matter how many times i re log, the characters do not show in game. Mobs will attack them, and i can see the name when pressing Tab, but the avatar is just not there.
  So far, i made two characters, and its the same with both.

 I bought the game from Beamdog, and use that to launch the game , as the GUI provided does not launch it, but it does update.

Any suggestions?

If PRO is the opposite of CON . then what is the opposite of PROgress ?

Is it 'your' character that won't show in game? If so, set a background for your character, its possible your height is defaulting to a 0 scale without it.

I was present yesterday when that happened, and i can confirm she was totally invisible. Could see her name when pressing tab, but thatís it! Could see her IG messages though when she was talking.

Set your background options via the rest menu and that'll fix this issue.

Given how often this comes up, is there any way to make it so you can't leave the OOC starting room until you've set a background? Have it pop up a message when you try so that people know why they can't enter yet, if at all possible.

As I just literally posted, this should now be fixed. Can you confirm?

Hello,i am very new to the game and this happened to me today. I was invisable and had to talk OOC to the other players to let them know that it was not my fault. The fix was for me to continue with my history ( subrace pick,ect ). Hopes this helps
