Dragon’s Prophet is a massive multiplayer online role-playing game, being played by thousands of players across the world and some of them are now reporting problems with the Windows 8.1 update
Man, I am addicted to the Dragon’s Prophet game, it’s one of the best MMORPG I’ve tried in a while. For those that don’t know, MMORPG stands for massive multiplayer online role-playing game. After updating to Windows 8.1, I was sad to discover that the game was plagued with crashes and it hanged for quite a while.
Looking online for a fix, I’ve discovered that I wasn’t the only one to have this issue. Here’s what one of the users has shared on the support forums for Dragon’s Prophet:
Is anyone running DP on Windows 8.1? I installed it today and now the game isn’t playable anymore. Logging in works without any problems. Putting dragons on duty – works. Walking and riding my dragons – works. Attack or jump – crash (black screen or back to loading screen that doesn’t move). A very heavy crash. The game blocks the system. Can’t destroy the task with the task manager or anything else. The only thing working is a reboot :/
I tried different stuff to fix the problem but nothing worked. Before I used Windows 8 and everything was fine, except for some random crashes in the last days while loading. I’m redownloading the game atm to reinstall it. But I’m not optimistic that this will help. The download takes several hours for me, so in the mean time: Is anyone having problems with Windows 8.1 too? Or does anyone even know a fix?
We have reached out to the Dragon’s Prophet developer but we’re still waiting for a reply. What some other users are saying is that Windows 8.1 is newer than Dragon’s Prophet software, so it means that the game doesn’t yet have official support for Windows 8.1. Let us know if you have similar issues and what are the workarounds that you have tried.
