Stuck at death/resume/load/quit dialog 1.0.1.4
« on: February 19, 2016, 12:11:55 PM »
On the rare occasions where I get killed, say in a big firefight, I get stuck in the death/resume/load/quit dialog box with the hourglass spinning, dialog items higlightable but not clickable. Is this some race condition? I have to kill the game to get out. This occurs even in previous versions of Underrail. Win 10 Home 64bit, quad core Intel. I wanted to attach the save file but it is 34 mb in size.

Hmm. Never happened to me so I cannot give you any positive advice. I am on w10 too.

For the more technical oriented minds, I have noticed that the two crashes/hangs I had with Underrail so far seemed to be due to having Video Write Combining active (USWC) which, sadly, it's the default value since Windows XP. BTW having USWC makes me pretty dizzy on some games (specially some FPS like L4D2). The bad news is that you cannot disable it for testing easily since Windows Vista. The easiest way (if you want to test it out) is to use Wagnard's DisableUSWC tool.

Add key means DISABLE USWC.
Remove key ENABLES it again.

Just reboot after enabling/disabling it.

As for savegames filesize, you can squeeze them a little using 7-zip for instance.

Trying to host the save file on google: https://docs.google.com/uc?id=0B5ZX-Z5Hq9KBRTV5SFljdzlVdzg&export=download

Please tell me if it works.

Your save works perfectly for me.

Althotugh I was killed by that chaotic battle.

Did it hang with the hourglass spinning at the death dialog?

Nope. It worked just fine. I just exitted the game normally using the main menu.

I think this occurred to me a few times in Arena fights. I'll look into it.

Perhaps the game tried to initiate combat with dead player.
Don't waste time on Underrail.



Use speedhack.
