Bugzilla – Bug 4
Last modified: 2012-12-12 02:23:46 CET
Many players experience a permanent loading screen, that can only be undone by revisiting a map tile that has already been previously travelled to. The locations seem to vary from player to player. More information can be found here:
I have never actually encountered this problem. Can you please verify that it happens with the default client?

Yes it does. I've been playing on default one since yesterday, today I can't log on my character. Updated my Java to 7.0, reinstalled it twice, erased temporary files - still no solution. I've created another character, and it works properly.

Problem solved. Apparently it was my PC. I logged on my character from my friends PC and everything works just fine. Sorry for troublemaking.
The fact that the issue isn't universal and perfectly reproducible doesn't mean it's not a bug, though, so I'm leaving this open.
From borka on the Paradox forums:
Happened to me yesterdaywith 2 chars after a while with locally installed bdsalem client with run.bat. With first char when it happened (Loading...) even the minimap went black. with 2nd char (different area till Loading...) i was able to play "minimap only" for an hour till the minimap went black too.
All with XP 32 and Java 6u33 - the default client or Ender both started with their jnlp even didn't run - prolly a Java6u33 crossdomain issue
Uninstalled Java6u33 + Cache and installed Java7u5, tested locally bdsalem with "old" chars - issue with loading forever still...
Started default client with old chars - same Loading forever..., made new char - shortly after leaving Boston (just crossed the big river in SE) Loading forever...
Error message states:
havenGLProgram$ProgramExeption: Failed to link GL program
Fragment shader (s) failed to link, vertex shader (s) linked.
Fragment Shader not supported by HW
AMD 740G chipset with integrated ati radeon 2100 graphics (RS740 - DX9 - Shader 2.0b - OGL 2.0)
CCC 9.1 for compatility reasons - i know there is a 10.2
DX9c version June 2010
After the last update, I am noticing this on entering Boston, a farmhouse, and even when loading a map area (once so far). I use WinXP and my 3 friends and I constantly getting them. They however use Win7.
Before now, I only ever got this bug when entering Boston from time to time. It hasn't happened after the server wipe. Just wondering why it seems to have crept in now and seems to happening more and more.
I usually only get the loading screens when I am close to a cliff area.
I have done all of the below only on my own connection and with Default, Enders and BDSalem.
I have tried:
1. Testing the game on 3 different computers with completely different HW.
2. Reinstalled Java using both 6 and 7 on said computers.
3. Reset my router after many setting changes.
4. Disabled firewall and open all ports on router.
5. Messed with multiple setting with Java.
6. Even rewired my phone jack wires.
Some loading screens require me to wait for 10-30 minutes for them to pass, others I just give up and restart, drop my items and start from my homestead (also in a 10-30min loading screen) or Jamestown.
