Well well, isn't that a surprise ^^
Was just about to mention I've never had any nvidia driver problems untill yesterday, which was weird as I've been using that driver for several weeks without problems as well. No idea how it suddenly, without any sort of update, caused sound issues in the game and even in the lobby. Just reverted back to driver version 457.09 using the driver's "clean install" function which fixed everything for now.
Still good to see it's getting solved the proper way.
I'll keep this driver install as backup though
Thanks a lot for the help!
I speak Dutch so it might be set to dutch.
Without access to the options in the client, can I set the language in the files themselves somewhere?
I have played ladder and will do again, though the really big maps scare me away a bit. I do plan on playing more TMM, even got a friend into faf to play together with, but finding a time where both of us can be online simultaneously has proven difficult.
I have joined mapgen matches, have not yet tried hosting one. Is it your experience that it gets players more easily than specific maps?
Game is perfectly fine for me, I've got no reason to stop playing it. I'm actually surprised how balanced it is, and how much QoL stuff there is in the client.
The reason however I'm playing a lot less than I would want to/don't bother starting up the client is simple: if you're not interested in playing Astro/gap/thermo/setons 95% of your games you can't play at my low level of rating. You can make your own server with another map, but it won't fill up unless you have an hour of spare time. With the game time of a match already being so unpredictable, making it difficult to fit in between making dinner and going to work, you either have to play a quick astro/etc/... or not play. Would play much more if more maps would be played.
Perhaps tie in player rating gain/loss to how much he played a map? Winning a match on a map that you've overplayed gives a penalty on rating gain, losing it makes you lose extra rating. Winning a map you've almost never played makes you gain extra rating while losing it gets punished less?
So ... what the title sais. Downlord is starting up, the login screen appears to be logging in with the "see server status" option in the right bottom corner, and then all text and options disappear and I just get the background color. It's not frozen as I can minimize/reshape/close the window, it's just that nothing appears. Tried reinstalling directly from the website. Tried with removing the original install instead of just upgrading. Have NOT tried with removing the Meta files as well. Ideas?
