My friend has not been able to play for a couple weeks now.
Loading screen lasts indefinitely. When alt+tab is done the game stops responding. We have left the game running for 20 minutes.
The last time the game worked he left it on for 3 days straight. So either that broke the game or vista has some serious problems with the new patch. We have not been able to solve this issue with any of the help that has been posted on this forum. Many others are experiencing this so I assume CA will have a fix released shortly.
1- If my friend upgrades from vista to win 7 will his avatar be intact? How do we take steps to ensure his avatar does not get wiped out?
2- I intend to build a new PC soon, so pretty much the same question; if I set up on a new computer how do I transfer my avatar over without any trouble? Is the avatar stored on my PC or the steam cloud?
