Can't create a characterFollow

Hello all!

After dealing with patcher issues for the past two days (no p2p at my apartment complex), I was finally able to get to a login screen (hooray!). I went ahead and added my code to the SE site and did the character registration so it gave me actual permission to create a new toon.

Anyway, when i go into play and I hit the screen that asks me to select a character, I click on new character. Nothing happens after that whatsoever. It doesn't lock up since i can still move the mouse. All i get is the grey rectangle and the music playing, but nothing comes up telling me that I can do anything.

Am I missing the point or is this just more launch-week issues?

You haven't activated a character slot on the account services page. When you first log in, click the bottom link, NOT "Play" and follow that, and "Add Services" and add a character spot for $3.00, ontop of you $9.99.

Character slot has been activated.

I got to the screen where it gave me a total what I had to pay for (12.99 - the 30 day free thing).


Did i not hit something else there?

Im on my SE account screen. It says I have 7 characters remaining, so I've obviously set that part up right.

Did you uninstall Beta?

Also.. and this kinda sucks, you may want to think about reinstalling, just to eliminate the possibility of bad data files.

Beta is gone. Fresh install of windoze 7 via bootcamp.

I think that may be my next step. Its just boggling that I have to go that far to play. Its almost like a minigame....

Could it possibly be my video drivers?

What kind of Mac? I don't know if that would affect the Char creation though, with video...? (Since you said Bootcamp)

I ended up doing a full uninstall and a reinstall. I'm in and playing now.

I kept my direct download patches and put them in, worked like a champ. No clue what the deal was, but if it works, i cant complain.

Wait, you're running it on a Mbook pro? I have a 4 month old Mbook pro I didn't even bother trying it on, but if it works, that'd be sxe. I play on desktop with Mpro next to me to access Alla xD

I actually had a similar thing happen. My Product Registration card was expired and I entered my game code from the back of my manual but I am unable to create a character. I get error code 50002. I contacted SE and spoke with a tech guy on their live chat. He basically took down my account information and said they would email me new registration code at a "future date". It has been 3 days and still no response. I'm irritated to say the least. I paid for the collector's edition so I could enjoy this week.
