Stuck at black screen with "Now loading" after char selectFollow

Is anyone else stuck at the "now loading" black screen following character selection? I can hear music still. Did this when I created a new character also.

It wasn't doing this before the latest patch. Anyone know how to fix it?

Thanks.

ALT + TAB and try again see if it works...probably too many people trying to log in, you'll get in soon enough.

I've exited and restarted the program several times and every time it gets stuck. Is this just server congestion or is it something on my end?

Am I really the only one experiencing this problem?

Leave it for a while, its a lengthy load. I too had that issue and went and had a cup of tea, came back and my char was in the starting area. Obviously I must have missed the intro CS but other than that, I was in.

Hmm well I tried this. I left it for about 40 minutes and came back and the screen was still black except for the "now loading..." in the corner. So I hit the [X] in the corner to close the game and as it was closing it flashed a frame or two of my character in some room on what looked like a boat (I'm assuming it was a boat since I hear boat/ocean noises during the "now loading..." screen).

Not entirely sure. How would I check that?

I would think it would depend more on my CPU than my harddrive though. And my CPU is hovering around 50-70%. So I don't see why it wouldn't be loading at all.


However I am able to load the starting cutscene for Gridania. But it seems the other two cities don't work for me. Guess I'll just have to play in this City for now, unless anyone has any better ideas.

I had this problem (and still does once in awhile). To me, it is more of a latency issue... if the server is really lagging for me (not receiving any signal, the sign is entirely red without movement, etc.), I wouldn't be able to get past the loading screen.

So, my only solution had just been to wait laggy times out. :|
