If the game crashes when you hit 1 to log in

Stop logging in and contact staff, probably Nimrod.

It's all good. It means your PC is corrupted or some other stuff.

Petitioned up a couple times. Just to check, should I open a ticket about this? Not sure if it's specifically a Nimrod thing or something.

Nope... this isn't it. Status messages are not written to your pfile. 99% of the time this is a problem with your character's objs file that was somehow corrupted, most likely during a crash. I'm watching this issue and have created some tools to find the problem files quickly and fix them when it happens. Unfortunately it still crashes the game and we don't know about it until the crash.

Sometimes it's simple t get the objs reverted and the player can just log out while we do the revert, log back in a few minutes later and everything is keen.

The Standard Operating Procedure for a char crashing the mud twice upon login is to set that char dead so they cannot log in and either let me know about it or try to fix it themselves. So don't worry if a char of yours shows up unexpectedly dead. It is fairly rare, btw. We've been having an issue like this about every two to three days. I'm still trying to debug the problem.

He's suggesting that you literally type 'set status may have a corrupted pfile,' so that Staff are more aware and can get to you. I'm assuming he's suggesting doing this while in the GL, too.

Might have to go with 'status corruptpfile?' since 20 characters is the maximum you can use with set status.
