Update on my D2X-XL situation

Postby Alter-Fox » Fri May 15, 2015 3:30 am

So the bad news is, I've found today that the D2X-XL is still occasionally locking up on loading screens.
The good news is I don't need to stop playing the game again for two reasons. One is that I've narrowed down the problem and can say definitively that it only happens when the music playlist is set to shuffle. And I finally found a consistent way to solve my computer's boot problem so I can boot it up again almost immediately after a forced shutdown... don't need to leave it for hours at a time anymore.
It's actually a pretty simple solution, it's just not an obvious one because it has nothing at all to do with any kind of software.

I'd update my bug ticket on the sourceforge tracker with the new info but it looks like it got deleted.

Well that's encouraging. Maybe we'll finally get a chance to fly together. :D
