    I have recently joined and have tried to play Multiplayer, however, when the game starts I simply get a blank blue screen. Is this something do with my browser settings or the PC specification.

    Hope someone can help

    I don't think the multiplayer function is actually working -

    I've joined many groups and tried to T off - blank screen with data transferring for an eternity.


    Has anyone managed a successfull online game with anyone ??

     I have played with 1 other player.  We've tried 3 and the third person hangs..

    We are experiencing some issues with loading avatars, which might be causing the hang. We are looking into it, so thanks for your patience.

    I have the same issue, multiplayer fails to load about 50% of the time.  It *seems* to help if I completely quit the game, close all windows, and then start from a fresh load of the client, but this could just be my imagination. 

    Of course, you can't use the bug reporting feature of the client at this point because it seems to load behind the blank screen (but waving your mouse around seems to show that the window is there and working, you just can't see it).

    I've got about a 20% success rate with multiplayer, never tried with more than 2 people.

    Hi, I have been able to play multiplayer just fine and had no issues with even 4 people on my current computer, there was an update tonight though 10/31 and since that i cant connect to any multiplayer match...and i was also getting a sprite loading error for the white male (sorry dont have details on the error at the moment)

    just wanted to update you that whatever was done might have caused more trouble...

    New Update on the last post i made... my buddy changed his character sprite to black and it started working, i also cleared my temp files and cookies just in case, we will test a white character a little later (might as well play while it works)

    This is getting very frustrating trying to get a multiplayer game going today.  Either I get a blank grey screen waiting for it to load or a course loading meter stuck at 96-97% or I can get through but the other party can't and gets disconnected.  It's like the game refuses to properly start a multiplayer game.

    Edit: There's no problem starting a solo game.
