Twinity

Today, I was going to regale you with tales of my excursions in Twinity. There is just one small problem.

The stupid game won't work.

I signed up for 'beta', waited three damn months, created a stupid profile, downloaded the stupid program (which took forever for some reason), downloaded a bunch of patches (why didn't that all come from that particular version I downloaded?), and I go to run the pile and it doesn't work. It doesn't log in.

I get to the loading screen, when suddenly I'm pelted with an error message:



I'm sure blogger screwed that photo up, so let me say what the box says:

"Cannot autorize SpeedtreeRT. Check license key. Enter debugger? Cancel will exit the program." Then it presents me with yes, no, and cancel. Here's where Twinity started acting like a bastard.

If I hit yes, it then asks if I want to file a bug report, and if I say yes or no, it closes out the program. I can't click cancel, that shuts the entire thing down and asks me to send another stupid bug report. Both add the wonderful side effect of stalling out on my computer, hogging memory until I force it to quit. Sometimes I had to restart the computer because no matter what I tried, it refused to stop... doing whatever it was doing besides actually loading Twinity.

Oddly enough, if I hit no, I get to this screen:



Go figure. Yet ANOTHER patch loader. Don't worry, before you get the idea that it actually worked that time around, I should let you know that at this point, it crashed. With no warning. I didn't know what happened. I had to run up Twinity twice to manage to snap that shot, by the way.

My excursion in Twinity was short lived to the point of actually being non-existent. I won't render an opinion on Twinity because how can I? I can't log into the god damn world. It's like being blocked at the border of a country and then being asked your opinion of it. So, for now, I will say that I guess Twinity is an okay world. I wouldn't know because I can't get in it, but hey, whatever.

In short, I hate Twinity.

Hi, this is Jeremy from Metaversum, the company that makes Twinity. I'm sorry to hear that you had such a bad experience in Twinity. The Speedtree issue that you ran into was part of a bad patch several weeks ago. The best solution is to uninstall, download the client again from www.twinity.com and reinstall. If you're willing to give it another shot, we'd love to have you back. Our support team is available at support @ twinity dot com, or on Skype twinity.support. -jeremy
