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?

Let's get your OS, build, player log, and mod status.

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.

This happens to me as well, as you say, Exit the game, it hangs, and begins an infinite disk access process... go use the bathroom, etc. come back, it's still sitting there, click exit again, it seems to die at that point, but it is still frozen, click a couple more times in the middle of the screen, goes grey and comes up with the Crash Message. I select Close Program and it shuts down, but the disk access continues and system remains very sluggish for a few minutes.
-I had Distant Land enabled, but I thought this was causing the problem, so I disabled the mod, made a few saves, then added Mountains and Hills. Seems like the latter is less laggy when travelling, but DFU still crashes on Exit. I've only noticed it Exit with no problem a couple of times, I believe after removing Distant Lands and before adding Mountains and Hills. I may try to run it without M&H and see if it exits okay again, but not sure if disabling/enabling mods like this is harmful as it is in other official TES games...
Is there a text file somewhere in game directory with the complete (enabled) mod list and versions? Not sure if this is a complete list or correct order) I can post other pertinent info as needed later.
