Hallow’s End – the Lost Bags

Having run several of my toons through the festival dungeon, I am so glad that I don’t have the cogwheel error from last year. Because that was a total disaster for me.

This year’s buggyiness surrounds the bags that drop. Certainly tonight (this morning) the pumpkin-bags have to be opened before you leave the dungeon. Or they disappear entirely from your inventory when you leave.

Some people report losing the items from the bags themselves, and money. I’ve certainly had a ring which I won on a roll – and that stayed.

Serves me right for clicking “leave party” so soon after the guy died

Hallow’s End bug – bug fix

The most excellent S has made a little script which seems to sort out the bug that caused me so much angst – and seeing as I got quite a lot of page views for that post, I am printing it here. In the event that the fault is not cleared in the weekly maintenance, the script you need is:

/script GameTooltip.Temphide = function() GameTooltip:Hide() end; GameTooltip:SetScript(“OnShow”, GameTooltip.Temphide);

and to switch on tooltips afterwards, it is

/script GameTooltip:SetScript(“OnShow”, GameTooltip.Show);

S has posted this to the bug report thread on the forums, so perhaps there will be some movement there.

Hallows End – Scarlet Monastery Bug. Sadface drama

All I can say is – don’t go in there for a while – because I am not alone in experiencing a bug with this season’s dungeon.

I managed to cause a complete screen freeze, locking out the computer – which would not even respond to ctrl alt del – far less alt-tab…

A complete reboot means that I have a computer that will not even boot into windows…

Major sadface.

So – trying again on another pc, I experienced the same problem. No ctrl-alt-del worked, and I was not going to switch off another box and break it completely…. So I waited and waited and waited, digging up the OEM disks for XP…and then in a final lagspike of pique, it threw me out of the dungeon and back to the character screen.

I know this is working for some people – but very much *not* for me. And the WoW forum posts show that I am not alone…
