    If you're on a more recent Windows machine (Vista/7) you may need to run as administrator if you aren't already. This sounds like a firewall or network issue to me, though...

    Awesome. Do I just post a picture of my character and their profile when I finally get it working?

    I say that because my character, when I'm making him, keeps showing up as this black model with no textures. I'm running the repair from the NCsoft launcher, am I doing the correct thing? And also, when I first started up the game menu, I accidentally clicked the highest graphics setting. 1. Does that have anything to do with it, and 2. Is there any way to change my graphical setting?

    Try restarting your computer. Sometimes the game "locks" certain files and then needs to open them later, and the only way to fix it is with a reboot.

    Let me know if that works.
    okay just tried that now when i click it it says City of Heroes quit unexpectedly when i click the reopen it just says City of Heroes quit unexpectedly again

    Oh, you're on a mac? What OS version? You might be stuck in the fail-loop with a corrupted games.xml list. I wonder if they got that fixed. In the meantime, check your downloads folder for any partially-downloaded patch files and delete them.

    Here's the Mac user subforum on the CoH boards: http://boards.cityofheroes.com/forumdisplay.php?f=582 . CuppaManga is really helpful and their guide/troubleshooting/faq are very useful.

    I know your pain, by the way, I too am on a mac. But we'll get you ingame yet!

    Yes, you can adjust your graphics settings and Ultra Mode is probably why you're getting texture problems. I forget how to invoke the safemode launch, though - some kind of switch... If you can get in-game without crashing, it's under Menu > Options > Graphics And Audio. The slider you want is Graphics Quality.

    Secondly, don't forget to uncheck "copy colors across costume" in the creator.

    EDIT: Found it! How to launch in safe mode. Go to City of Heroes on the launcher, rightclick, and go to Properties. Check "Launch in safe mode." This will set all your graphics and audio to minimum, and allow you to correct the (potentially damaging) graphics setting.

    I ended up getting it to work, awesome. The only thing is, how do I add his symbol? I'm stuck here.

    Go on the "Chest Detail" section, and pick one from the list of possible symbols.

    Re: Herostuck: A City of Heroes Collaborative Adventure

    Symbols are in the Upper Body>Chest Detail category. Certain categories of upper body (namely, jackets, shirts (for the ladies) + robes) have small symbols on the upper left breast, but for Jackets you can choose "under" and use an open jacket of some kind to showcase it.

    and scoop'd.

    Re: Herostuck: A City of Heroes Collaborative Adventure

    Awesome, he's done. My next post will contain a picture of him and a profile. Should it be his normal profile from the trollslum, or "Meteors fell and I recieved a power" profile? Or is it neither of those? I'm aksing for preferences on what I should write.

    Whichever you prefer. We have both flavors in the group currently.


    On an entirely unrelated note, MAKE SURE YOU CHOOSE TO BE A HERO! We can't invite Villains to the group, unfortunately. When you're given the choice to lend powers to Blue Spectrum, or steal his powers, make sure you choose to lend him some of yours.

    Okay, so I have one more question before the profile's posted. I've opened the shop to buy the knowledgable badge, but I don't see a "check out" button in the cart menu. How do I make my final purchase?

    There should be a "Complete Purchase" button, or something similar. It's on the bottom right.

    Re: Herostuck: A City of Heroes Collaborative Adventure

    My final question for now: Does it matter what Alignment we take? I'm tempted to press Villain, but this is Herostuck after all. I don't want to mess everything up.

    So. Anyone running around Atlas City want to meet up for some awesome roleplay/killing/whatever? Also, is there a more convenient place for this sort of thing?

    Herostuck is a heroside group, which restricts to Hero/Vigilante/Rogue. And I'm sitting on the stairs by the spawn point right now in AP1, waiting for Nightcastle to zone in so I can give them a "welcome to the game" gift. :3c

    Oh, my game name is stargazingShatter, so keep an eye out for a troll with War horns, a jacket and purple eye rings.

    Actually, it restricts it to Hero/Vigilante. Rogues can play with us, but can't join the group.

    Yeah, that's what I meant.

    Also, free players cannot join supergroups, so it's worth it to make a single small purchase to earn that right. (I think that the minimum purchase is $5 unless there's a promo going on.)

    Also, my ingame global name is @Alisha Shatogi, the same as over there
    <--
    but with a space. My main toon overall has the same name, and my HS/CJ characters are Mage of Mind (Lisa, above) and venusianVivacity (blueblooded beam rifleer troll).
