  1. So I'll try and go through this step by step to make sure I get it right. When I first got to Twin Elms, I approached Teir Evron and got the main quest update to enter and talk with the gods. However, I figured I'd visit Oldsong first and maybe do some side-quests and stuff. So I did, picked up the quest from the priests of Hylea to clear out the dragon, the quest to look for the woman's missing sister in Noonfrost, and finally, The Old Queen and the New King. Since that seemed contained to the same area, I figured I'd just solve it straight up, and went to Sul's lair. But I didn't feel right just killing one of the beasts since that would be interfering, and I didn't see any other option in dialogue or otherwise, so I decided to do that most unholy of things and google the quest, and found out it it was apparently a sub-quest to gain Galawain's favor, and it also looked like there was also apparently a dialogue-string related to it that would offer an alternate way to solve the quest. So, I decided to go and get it - and the other quests - before continuing my faffing around. After all it might give me a better solution to the quest, so both Sul and Oernos are still perfectly alive and friendly to me. So I went there, read up on the gods and goddesses relevant from the conveniently placed books, and approached all four. The other three followed the same pattern - see vision, get explicitly told by the gods to do thing, exit dialogue through the normal 'End Dialogue' button at the bottom of the screen, get notification of a journal update, and finally get both a sub-quest for the god to gain their favor, and an update in the main Council of Stars quest about what the god asked of me. As I would expect. This is also true for Hylea whose sub-quest I'd already accepted, obviously simply updating the sub-quest rather than giving it to me again but still updating Council of Stars to add it in there, and so on. However, none of this happens with Galawain. I do see a vision of the Lion and the Bear, however rather than being told I need to solve it, I simply get a conversation prompt (NOT the End Dialogue button at the bottom of the screen like the other three have, but [1. Turn back to Teir Evron]) to leave the vision. At this point I get no journal update, the text in The Old Queen and The New King doesn't update at all to clarify that Galawain wants me to interfere or the like, and it's not added to Council of Stars at all - it only shows the quests from the other three. Praying to him again offers me no new options whatsoever, however, where praying again to the other gods simply give me a brief description of the vision and the End Dialogue button, I still have the same options when praying to Galawain as I had in the first place, including the Howl and being forced to turn back at the end. As mentioned before, I'd also accepted Hylea's quest prior to going here, so it's not some universal quest-trigger issue with accepting a favor quest prior to getting asked to by the relevant god At this point I have not yet tried to complete the quest although from searching apparently several other players have had an issue with getting the game to recognize the quest as done at all and/or to get Galawain's favor afterwards. Best case, the interaction of the main story quest and sub-quest, as well as praying to Galawain, is very unclear and different to the other favor quests, and could make it tough for players to understand what to do - if I hadn't googled it myself and figured out it was supposed to be a favor quest, the only hint I'd have would be the Lion and Bear in the vision, nothing in my journal. Alternatively Galawain's quest needs a certain stat or background or whatever to be able to get his quest, but I feel pretty confident that's not how it should work, and if it is it's not at ALL clear either. At worst, the quest-interaction is actually outright broken.
  2. So, the network adapter workaround is still working fine for me and all, but I'm getting kinda sick of having to use my wireless which while stable, isn't giving me quite as much oomph as I'm used to. Also my wireless refuses to activate on start-up for some reason despite making sure it's set up to, so I gotta do a pointless network fix whenever I restart. With 1.04 these issues are still not fixed and reappear the second I try to go back to LAN, is there any sign of progress? While I happily suffered the minor annoyance for my first play-through, it's really killing my urge to re-play the game right now.
  3. As someone who had the problems referred to in the linked thread, that's a completely separate issue. In that case, the audio played exactly as normal, it simply had a delay of several seconds before they started playing. This happened both for soundbites you get when selecting/ordering characters around, and for actual dialogue. Using the workarounds in the thread solved that for me completely as well as the other issues mentioned there. Now that I've had the chance to actually play I've gotten the same issue as Niranloh. Whenever Calisca has a line of dialogue (not the soundbites which are fine), the audio starts randomly several words into the clip, generally in the middle of a word. So far it hasn't happened with Heodan at all, only her. It's nothing huge but it does make things a little grating when she has several lines of dialogue in a row or the like.
  4. Ah, it seems like I got it working in the end - I just disabled my local connection and connected to my router through wireless instead, and now I'm not getting inventory lag or audio delays. Not ideal but close enough, thanks for the help.
  5. So if I disable all my extraneous network-connections (3 wireless adapters and a bluetooth adapter that aren't doing anything) and just have my local network active, that should solve it? E: I'll try the above, thanks for the advice. E2: I already had IPv6 disabled unfortunately, and turning it back on did nothing.
  6. I don't run Hamachi or any VPN, so this won't do me much good, but it's nice that people are finding solutions at least! E: To clarify, I deactivated my local network and launched the game, and it runs fine! So it's definitely something connected to how Unity handles network connections, and not an issue with Hamachi or any other program of the sort. But I'm the kinda dude who tabs out constantly, streams music while playing, etc so I'll probably just hold off on playing until it gets fixed or I'm desperate, hence 'won't do me any good'.
  7. Hopefully a workaround or fix is found soon, between the inventory lag and incredibly long load-screens the game isn't really playable for me at the moment.
  8. I've got a single, partitioned HD and my Steam directory and all games are on the second partition (D:).
  9. Funnily enough I actually updated all my drivers yesterday (was hoping to wrangle Dark Souls into playing nice even though I knew its PC issues are game-related and not my machine), so they certainly should be.
  10. Yeah, I also have this exact problem - although I haven't gotten to combat yet, everything else is working fine except for those exact three issues. I also noted it's just the game freezing - I can tab out and browse Firefox or even tab over to WoW (I tried) without any slow-down or issues with my computer performance. Since I can also run seemingly more resource-intensive games fine I figure it's not my PC that's an issue. E: Running Steam version. Windows 7 64-bit i7-3610QM, 2.30 GHz 8GB RAM GeForce GT 650M
