URU's newest pod age is by far the spookiest. I went to it for the first time just before the portal opened and it was flashing blood red. I found myself wading through ankle deep water that even with the lights on, I could barely see. Went through the portal only to face a black screen. Guess too many ppl had the same idea. Completely unnerving. Still, I can't wait to do it again. My question is, does anyone know what time the portal will open today or the time difference between it and other pods.
Thanks. smile.gif

I figured out when the portal appears on Tetsonot, however when I portalled I just got black screen and after 20 min had to quit out down.gif .

By the way, it appears that the portal times between pods have changed dramatically;

the website was early by four and a half minutes on Neg.


I actually had the time to get In Cavern for Neg, Pay, and Tetsonot. I've only calculated the time for Dereno and haven't checked it yet; might do so tonight.

Hopefully none of this qualifies for spoiler material. if so, Mod please drop the tags in for me.

I was plagued by black screen links until I finally figured out why I only had trouble with one avatar. That was the one I never bothered to take a KI shot or do something to force some communication with the server. Now this is purely subjective and may have no bearing on reality but... if I take a KI shot of the portal just before I attempt to enter the portal, the server has to download the copy to my hard drive (or vice versa since I don't know which way the data is going). In any case, this seems to increase my chances of a successful link. Be aware that you may end up with your KI stuck open and you will be unable to close it by clicking on the button and of course you can't walk into the portal. Some quit taps on F2 seems to unlock it and then you can move through the portal. This has not always worked but after 3 failed attempts at Dereno and starting to take a quick picture before moving into a portal, I have made it through about 75% of the time.

Strangely enough, this is the only portal that has given me any trouble. Even when I walked through yesterday it seemed to hang, but I waited it out. My friend who also went through when I did, had the black screen that time. They seemed to stagger the times a little yesterday, probably to give the server a break. Anyway, I'm glad I finished it, because I don't want to hang out there, and especially not alone. If the flashing lights don't get to you, then the creaking sounds like the walls are close to collapsing will. I told my friends, it's the perfect romantic getaway.............if you're a ghoul. laugh.gif

I would not even chance it this time with Tetsonot (maybe later, AFTER my avvies have their--prizes). Though I did take shots of the first three. I did not want it to happen again as it did with Payiferen. Also I notice that pressing F2 in a laggy situation causes my KI window to freeze while half-open, a pensive situation when you're trying to close it when there's an open portal in front of you!

Oh, yes. That is the risk you take using this method. I froze almost 20 seconds taking an avvie through Tetsonot doing this last night. That's the 3 out of 4 successes vs the 3 failures in a row choice. I also noted that the KI gets way out sync with other peoples KI. I was PMing with Ayli when she said her portal has opened right on time and my KI was still showing 4 minutes to go until my calculated time. She told me her KI time and sure enough, her time was 4 minutes later than mine. About 3 minutes later my portal opened with a KI time 1 minute before the time I was expecting. This may be how the servers are trying to balance the load or is merely an indication that the KI is a software clock not bound to the system clock and is only synchronized with reality every so often.

I was able to get my Tetsonot Portal yesterday evening and it arrived on time. One crucial piece of advise I was give ... was to wait till the Portal fully forms before walking into it. This is supposedly suppose to help with the link and avoiding the "black screen" syndrome. So I waited and once it fully formed I walked through ... the link was still long ... about 5 minutes I think ... but I did make it through. I didn't time it specifically, because I deside to go have a smoke and just let it sit and see what happens. So when I came back ... about 10 minutes later ... I was standing in the cave.

I guess I am one of the lucky ones...I have never ever had any trouble getting to the bahro cave. I don't hang, I don't get the BSOD, I just link in, get what I came for, and link out. I am also there when there is the highest incident of people trying to link through as well. I wonder if it doesn't have something to do with the computers or connections that those of you who do crash are running.

I do, however, have a problem with linking via the starfield. sometimes it crashes my game. Used to do this 99% of the time when I first started playing as another avi and even though the frequency of it happening has decreased, it is still a problem from time to time.

Ok... long time reader, first time poster. bleh.gif

If the Negilahn pod is on Negilahn, the Dereno pod is on Dereno, Payiferen... an so on. What does Testonot represent? It's not the island the pod is even near... that's Cheecho. I've tried to translate the sounds of the syllables... but I can't get anywhere with it. Any ideas?

Since it appears at the edge of the map and seems to be underwater, perhaps it is named for the sea or ocean it's it... an area and name not seen on the map. And notice that there are 6 pods in Payiferen, but we only call pod #13 Payiferen after the area it's in. Following this line of reasoning, Tetsonot must be in an area called Tetsonot.

Maybe Tetsonot means "busted down leaky tin can" in D'ni. shock.gif

Certainly we're going on the names of the pods given to us by the DRC... just thought it odd that the last one wasn't named in the same pattern as the first three. Maybe we'll find out why later. Never can tell.
