Webclient has a really annoying flaw...

Post by Cherek » 06 May 2010 17:10

Okey,

So my computer bugged out and I was unable to use my normal client. I decided to log in using the web client to walk to a safe place and linkdie. So I logged in, walked to the safe place, and I pressed "disconnect" in the client. As most of you know, disconnect in another popular client means you're going LD. Guess if I was surprised when I quit and dropped all my stuff?

Come on!

Nobody noticed that until I did just now? Disconnect = quit. Closing the window = LD. Is this fixable somehow?

Another pretty annoying thing in an otherwise useful client is that if you alt-tab from the window, and alt-tab back, the command area isnt automatically marked. So each time you check some other window (like we all do all the time) you gotta use your mouse to click in the command area to be able to write a command. Kinda makes it hard to play I must say...:(

I posted a message on another thread about the linkdeath issue:

Hopefully you didn't lose anything too valuable.

Ah. Not the same for me though, when I pressed "disconnect" the client actually wrote the command "quit" right on the spot. I was lucky to be able to login and run back and grab my stuff before someone else did though.

Good point.
For a work around - Does closing the web window work?

Tarax: Read my entire post. :P

However, I dont know if you actually go LD or remain in the game like Earth mention, all I know is you dont quit when closing the window...:)
