Help for Merc
« on: July 03, 2019, 11:35:21 am »
Hey all. I sent Merc the files on a thumb drive and so far the game runs OK offline, but when he tries to access the server the game loads to 90% humans then hangs and will not connect fully.
Any ideas what causes this?

Also, Greywolf, Merc got the same computer system you have and he cannot save any shortcuts to his desktop. It has a system (Dell) that uses a menu of apps rather than shortcuts. Is there a way to disable that system so he can use shortcuts like on his old Windows system? He's running Win10 on the new Dell.
Thanks for any info.

Gos

odd issue. without very much information try this

Go to Settings > Update and Security, click in Windows Defender on left tab and then click in Open Windows Defender Security Center

In new window, click in Protection from Virus and Threats > Virus and Threats Settings and TURN OFF Access to Controlled Folders.


OR

Find OneDrive in the task bar and open it > Settings > Autosave > select "This PC only" from the dropdown menus.

Is Merc running in Tablet mode?

If so move your mouse to the bottom right of the screen to the notifications icon.

Click on it and a window opens - look for an icon that says Tablet Mode - if it is blue click on it to turn tablet mode off.

Non-dell system here and I run from either shortcuts placed in the tool bar or from the menu list.  I do NOT have a dell, mine is an Official Clutter System.  :-)

Issue has been resolved. It turned out to be a video settings selection. Thanks to all that responded.
