    After I launched I seem to be stuck at "connecting.....". Should I just give it time or try again later?

    Thanks for all you do! :)

    I can't connect either. I type in my name & password, and it gets stuck in 'connecting'.

    That sounds like something that falls under the 'honey-do' category. :D Now just waiting until he wakes up.... o_O

    I have been using the x86 to launch.
    How do I connect using Google DNS? (sry, i'm not that techy)

    *edit:
    I'm scared to do it:
    "Caution: We recommend that only users who are proficient with configuring operating system settings make these changes."

    So I guess i can't login this weekend...I really wanted to help test things, but I don't want to screw up my PC and/or connections. Looks like I'll miss the GM event too. :(

    Will the server go back to normal login on Monday?

    We will be sending out Deathwing to everyone as they will not be able to get him from the login reward.

    As long as you follow the directions you should be fine; it's something that can be easily fixed as necessary as well. All you're doing is switching from using your ISP DNS server, which are not always updated in a timely manner, to Google, which updates almost instantly and doesn't retain a long-term cache.

    GM event is being cancelled this week, and we'll probably do a dual event on Saturday.

    I'm not able to use the DNS thingie, so won't be able to log in. I am definitely not proficient with anything to do with computers when it goes beyond turning it on, logging in or out, and restarting/shutting down. I'm a really good cook, though! :D

    I just tried it again but will try again tomorrow.

    I must be doing something wrong lol. Downloaded the patch above, unzipped. I used the launcher within the patch (( got 'Image.cfg ( Load MainWnd error')
    so tried the original desktop shortcut Launcher ( Still same problem as before the patch ) DP stopped working, looking for a solution then close. o_O

    I'll try to log in tomorrow (Monday). Not working for us today. I am sure it is an easy fix, but when I say I am not proficient with anything that has to do with computers, I am not exaggerating.
    I'll be lurking until I can easily log in. ;)
    Thank you again for all you do to make this game better than ever! :D

    Sorry that people have had issues; the patching system for Dragon's Prophet isn't that great, and we're probably going to change how that works entirely (great thing we did this live test, right?).

    :) At least you now have some idea of what glitches, what to ditch etc. Just sad some of us did not get to be much help in finding bugged items for you :(

    Thank you for trying to get it to work for us Seiichi & all your team:D

    If you were/are stuck on connecting it means you do not have the new client exe. I changed some packet structures and the older client would mismatch so the server rejects you, thus you end up getting stuck connecting. In the future, you will not have to worry because the launcher will no longer cause issues after patching so you will be able to get all the correct patches.
