Windows 7: DA:O Slow Start

07 Sep 2010   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
DA:O Slow Start

The title may be misleading slightly.

Im having a odd issue with my DA:O if I am logged into the DA servers.
Oddly, the game itself plays perfectly fine, and load times are quite fast for me. So performance itself is fine.

Also, I have no issues actually accessing any of my DLC or expansions.

The problem is if I am logged into DA server. When I get to the title screen, Starting or resuming a game results with a
"You must be logging in to acess DLC .... " message

Clicking the Downloadable Content Button I can see ALL DLCs listed, and it shows as "Updating"
Also, at this point in the installed tab a few show as "unauthorized"

If I give it about 2 minutes, then all my DLC shows properly and everything is OK.

The game itself loads fine, and plays perfectly however.

But the initial wait everytime I start the game is annoying.

If I simply log out of the DA servers, theres no problem.
However, I do not remember the game taking this long to "verify" DLC if logged in.

I havent played the game in a little while and recently added the Awakening expansion and updated to patch 1.4.

Any suggestions?

Hi Wishmaster, I get the same thing though it doesn't happen all the time. I was actually going to ask the same question till I saw your post. Anyways I think it's a server thing and what I do is check to see if i'm logged in then close the box and all is good. It is rather annoying though.

Outside of that I have no suggestions. Would like to see what other have to say though?
