You must be. I can't even make a 1st level character without getting a white box in the center of the screen with red leters. The content of that box has been posted all over the place.
Plus - very slow sometimes. This does not seem to work for most of their customers.
I've been trying to keep people up to date in the sticky threads but I'm not sure if those are being seen.
While server load hasn't been a problem, we have identified an issue with the servers that can cause crashes. We're actively working to fix that issue now and when I have another update, I'll post it in the sticky above.
We've also seen some crashes/issues cropping up when a CB account is logged in more than once in any given time. This could be logging into the CB from two different browsers on one computer at the same time, or logging into the CB from two different machines or IPs. A CB account isn't intended to be accessed this way and doing so can cause crashes or other weird errors. We are working to make this interaction clearer (aka, some kind of message letting you know that you're already logged in or possibly forcing the current account out, or some similar solution) but it's likely that won't be seen until a future update. In the mean time, this can be avoided by making sure you're the only one logging into your account, and you're only doing so from one browser at a time.
Thanks much for all this guys! Asmo and all of you have really done a great job of getting everything together - it's awesome to have this as a reference. Currently we're working on the server issue that cropped up yesterday, and once that gets finished we'll divert more energy to looking at these individual issues and feature needs.
I want to remind people that if they run into bugs, please please please report them using the "report a bug" link in the FAQ. It's just the best way to make sure your bug has been recorded.
Once things settle down (read, once we fix this server issue) I want to sit down and go through the bugs and feature requests, prioritize them, and get a road map of what we can expect to see in the coming weeks/months. That's the plan anyway. I think fixing this server issue will help eliminate many of the problems we're seeing, but I won't know until we get there. Anyway, I'll be back when I have more info. Keep checking the stickies for updates.
Can you see a selection of Player's Handbook magic items if you're creating an Essentials character? I'm trying to add a Flaming Weapon +2 but it's not showing up in the inventory list.
I can't get the FAQ page to open, so I apologize if this question is answered there.
What will happen if I "update" my old Character Builder? Will I no longer be able to use it offline?
I got a crash early on, but I followed somebody's suggestion and added Silverlight as an allowed application in Windows Firewall, and haven't seen any explosions since.
I use Zonealarm, but for some reason, it (Silverlight) doesn't show up on the list of programs accessing the Internet. Any tech-savy guys knows why?
