I cannot log onto AO (since Oct. 2019). I even took drastic measures to reformat my PC (once with Win7 then again with Win10) and a fresh install of AO but I still cannot log into the game. All drivers are updated and current and cannot be the problem.
I am completely stumped and cannot figure it out. If anyone has any ideas or suggestions I am wide open to any input that can be given.
When I try to log in I can get to the character selection screen ok but when I hit PLAY the game crashes. It does not matter if I have my saved Prefs folder in my AO directory or not and it does not matter what account I try to log into. The result is always the same. Last night I reformatted (again) and I’m back to Win7 Ultimate with all updates and all drivers are updated.
Trying to play through Steam doesn’t even help.
