RF Online N00b
I tried to play RF Online in Netopia but instead I kept getting this message:
"Patch failure. Please try in short future."
Since I was playing in an internet cafe, I told the employees about it and they suggested I try a different machine. It works! Sheesh, I shoulda done this sooner. Gahd I'm such a newb >_< but then, what if that happened to my personal computer??
WTF?? Now I'm getting this message: "Not a subscribing user. would you like to subsribe?"
Whaddayamean I'm not a subscribing user?? I just bought PhP20 credits and topped up!
I met a fellow RF player at the UP AME who told me I should go to the Use Credits page and choose the game I'd use the credits for. Considering I just added those same credits to game it asked me to specify, I never thought of this solution independently. I've yet to give it a try though, because...
Bad news for people who bought credits worth PhP100, which entitles you to unlimited play for five days.
IF you can play within those days, that is!
But if you kept getting that stupid 'Connection to the server failed' message? For one, two, or even worse; five days? You have just kissed your hundred clams goodbye. For nothing.
There are simply days when the servers are simply down. And there's nothing you can do about it. Ugh.
I'm afraid the most we can do is resolve to buy the lowest denominations from now on, because unlimited plays mean nothing to players who only rent the machine they play on. And to everyone when the game itself is inaccessible anyway.
I honestly want to play this game and seriously level up and all, but all these fuck-ups are just not worth it. I won't even start with how I never get problems like these when I was playing Guild Wars(yes, the game that doesn't need any topping up at all)! I'm very frustrated. But if anyone can help me resolve these stupid mysteries I'd highly appreciate it.
