What is GS1..GS2..GS3 ect

Postby fleat » Mon Jul 07, 2003 4:01 am

You may hear some of us speaking of GS. Ill try to explain a little.
Each shop, dungeon, ect., can only have so many people in it. Ill just speak of a shop, but really anything indoors will apply( Including ToTW, InnerScantum, Subway, Tarasque raids, ect.) .

What the FC servers will do is 'Spawn' another copy of the shop. So when you enter, you will not REALLY be in the same shop as other people.
For example, your friend tells you , he/she is in FairTrade. You go in and not see him/her! So you ask... Where? And you look exactly there and see nothing. What is happening, is that you are in another 'Group Selector' , a copy of the shop.

Now you may ask 'How do I know what GS I'm in?" . This is easy, press Shift-F9 and you'll see in there in there in the information.

Another Question "How do I get into the GS my friend is in?" . Well, thats a tough part. Try zoning in and out of the shop. If this doesn't work.. Ask you friend to come out.. and then enter at the same time. Usually , entering together , at the same time.. will work fine.

This does NOT apply to Playfields.. there will never be 2 Tir's, or Bliss.
.... If a PF (Playfield) is full, you'll be disconnected(LD) when trying to zone in. This is the Crowd Control that prevents you from entering crowded area to prevent lag. There is some explanation of CC from funcom here.

All you can do is wait for the area to empty a bit and try to log again if you cant log for a very long time, log in with another char and send a petition, a GM can help you to log back.

I hope this clears things up for you.

Hehe, I used to get in yelling matches over this:

"No doofus I said the BASIC store in WA!"

"That's where I am you idiot, look, can't you see soandso in front of the clinic??"

"There's no one in here at all, what are you talking about??"

LOL

Old thread but

If the person outside does /lft

and the person/team in the instance does shift F search

Then you can join/create a team, wait 30 secs and enter the same GS
