Show Notes

  • Development News
    • Major Bugs which have been reported.
      • Mouse going mental :- workaround is to go to options graphics menu and change the mouse settings to Panel.
      • Too Many Friends :- This is an issue for only the more popular members of the community, turns out if your friends list is too long, it takes too long to render and causes issues. This needs a patch but as long as you avoid the friends tab it should be fine. (?)
      • Servers seem to be ‘Flakey’ over the Easter Weekend.Response from Dav (Warning The posts in that thread a bit ‘salty’)
      • The Galaxy Map :- This is an issue with the UI for people not using the standard resolution and needs an urgent path

      • If Salomé is captured by hostile players, and they offer her a chance to surrender, she may be receptive to it. Her acceptance of surrender obviously depends on her captors being open to negotiating a bounty with those groups or individuals who have placed them. Her captors may simply decide to kill her there and then and be done with it. But at least there is now a middle-ground option on the table that gives roleplayers an avenue to make an impact in the end game narrative.
      • Nice article in ESO’s “paper”
