AFK auto-loop causes server disconnect since patch.


20 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

Since this last patch I can no longer auto-loop to level horses. This puts me at a distinct disadvantage to players that simply buy horse breed resets on the cash shop.

For the last several days I have played the game with no problems. So long as I am actively doing things the game never disconnects me.

Any time I attempt to AFK auto-level my horses, whether it be in task-tray low power mode, full screen power management (screen shot) mode, or just normal power mode with the graphics turned down, I am disconnected from the server within the first hour.

I have verified that my ISP is having no problems in my area, and that my ping and jitter and speed tests all check out. I am not losing packets or experiencing any latency or service outage issues on my end.

I tested it last night with a large .ISO download running in the background set to not auto-resume, just to see if it was some service issue on my end. After an hour the download was still going but the game had disconnected.

Is this something that Daum has done intentionally?

If you watch your character, what I have seen from playing my account and watching hubby's account that was afk fishing or auto looping, is that it seems to do some kind of check or search for something and then stops. It is very odd. Each time, it is as though the game itself could not find what it was looking for and decided to stop you due to being unable to locate said file or something. I am not a computer genuis, so I cannot put this into proper text, sorry.

As I've stated before the two patches just before this last patch, things for AFK changed. Originally, we could afk without issue since beginning of game to fish or husband with trade wagon, etc. We could even put into tray overnight. Then it was that we changed from confirming to auto tray to canceling auto tray and all would be okay. Now neither of those work.

AFK is not the same AFK as when BDO released. Something has changed, but what this is we are not being told OR they do not know themselves. It will most likely not be fixed any time soon as there are so many other priorities such as game desync making game unplayable, etc.

Best of luck to you.....

P.S. I am not being negative. Only stating my observations.

Thanks, but please see above post by Raevn.

The problem isn't that I don't know how to auto-loop or that I don't know what auto-looping it. The problem is that I was using it fine to level horses while I slept up until last patch, at which point the game started disconnecting you when AFK autolooping.

Maybe I should have said "AFK auto-looping no longer works after patch and causes server disconnect."

I've found that if I keep the window up on-screen and active (not clicked off to one of my other monitors), I'll stay connected. If I send it to the tray, minimize it or don't have it as my active screen, I'll be disconnected.

Doesn't work for me, but maybe it is because I have the low-power screensaver mode enabled? I will try it without.

I am also going to start just paper-clipping my keyboard so that it is constantly sending a command to the game 1000 times per second to avoid these disconnects.

If this is something they did on purpose I really wish they would have put it in the patch notes.

I know a lot of people that never would have shelled out cash for the horse training costume if they knew Daum planned to break AFK looping.

I dont know if this will help you or not, or if its even patch related. But i found that disabling the game screen saver stopped me from getting dced while i auto looped over night.

I was having major lag issues and afk disconnects also. I then rebooted my pc, and now haven't disconnected for the past 3 days.

Different people experience different things.

Since headstart I've barely had any lag or DC problems, all this week since the patch I get disconnected within the hour if fishing or horse looping.

idk what server you or others are on, I'm on Edan.

Has happened on C1&2, I didn't test any other channels and I haven't tested it since saturday (spent sunday doting on my moms and fixing her a stupid good meal. Left it logged out because didn't feel like remoting into my pc every hour to see if I was still connected today)

I have this same issue.

I play on Orwen and I cannot autoloop for more than 20 minutes or so AFK without a disconnect. I don't know what's causing it. I even tried putting an earring in my mouse to keep the key depressed for sprinting while I do it so that there is a constant action being performed with no luck. I used to autoloop without any issues but now its every night.

Even if I am sitting at my keyboard doing other things with the game minimized it happens. Its very frustrating indeed.

I think i have found the issue. after the patch if your Firewall is up something within our moving afk is disallowing it. I went back and checked and sure enough there it was. So disable your Firewall, or allow it. I prefer disabling being that I have enough security on my pc.

 

This should fix the problem

I get disconnected overnight about half the time. Today I came back after a night of AFK autoloop riding to once again find myself at the login screen. When I logged in, my character was on foot, my horse nowhere in sight, and every movement I made gave the error "The action could not be found in the action list" or something. I couldn't check mail, receive rewards, anything. I had to quit, restart, and choose a different server. Once I did, I was back on my horse and everything worked properly.

I have other things running all night which also require a connection, so it's not my connection dropping out. And the issues with my character when I relogged lead me to believe it is a server issue. Sometimes it's a server issue; it can't always be client side, no matter how great a game people think it is, no matter if they personally had no issue on their server and their channel.

One thing I did was to check that Windows Firewall still had an entry for the BDO x64 executable - it did not. It had a bunch of test entries, the launcher, etc., but not the actual main exe. So I added that, again. Maybe it will help; I'll know tomorrow.
