PXO Oddness

Post by woodchip » Sat Jan 03, 2004 8:11 pm

When I log in and get to the game screen, and then click on a game I get kicked back to the main Descent screen where you pick multiplayer or choose load game for single player. Is this somethiong to do with PXO? When I am in the PXO game screen I can see players are entering and leaving games.

I get that sometimes if PXO chat is down. Lets say, I get to the games screen, and try to enter chat to find it's down. If I then try to join a game it will kick me back to the main menu.

Simple solution: Don't go into PXO chat when its down Image

//Edit - And at the time of postage, it is down. So thats probably why Image

that also happens when you have been messing with a table editor or download a mod that altered your table file

How to Fix This Issue

Enter PXO. Click "Cancel" which takes you to the Games List. Put a checkmark in "Make this the default screen" (or whatever it says). Exit PXO. Enter PXO. VOILA! Now you can join games!

I already had "Games" as default. Got into PXO just fine today so I think Robo had the correct answer in this instance.
