DFU won't exit

Post by jayhova » Fri Apr 19, 2019 12:55 am

For some reason when ever I try to quit DFU the game locks up on me. Has anyone else run into this?

Mods:
Daggerfall world map
Distant terrain 2.6.0
Dream (RC3)
Enhanced sky 2.1.1

I've put my OS and build in my signature for future reference. Is there an easy way of outputting mods and version to a file for troubleshooting purposes? This seems like it would be helpful.

It looks like upon further investigation that distant terrain is what is causing DFU to hang. I deactivate the mod and DFU exits, with it on it doesn't. I have totally wiped the directory and reinstalled DFU and all the mods I use. Some bugs went away but this one persists.

Same problem. Workaround is to start clicking your mouse in the middle of the screen after a few seconds after it looks stuck, you will get a crash msg and can select quit program (on win7)

It caused by the Distant terrain, and it doesnt cause this problem all the time, sometimes it quits ok, majority of time it does not.

I have not seen it exit properly. I in fact do as you say.
