So I make a new character, and I'm in Izlude. Apparently they got rid of the newbie training grounds. Anyway, I'm walking around, and there's nobody. I walk into a doorway and get warped inside, but I don't see a warp portal anywhere.
Also I can see people talking, but I can't see any people. Nor can I see any NPCs, both in Izlude and inside the shops. I can also see the effects of some skills like a giant green tree or a warp portal skill (not the warp portal to travel to different maps that are there by default)
I try going outside to South prontera, and I don't see any monsters. I saw drops suddenly appear, then a couple disappear as if someone picked them up, but I didn't see another player or the monster being killed.
Does anyone know what's going on?
Also I tried to post on the Warp Portal forums, but it's not accepting my login email and password, even though it's correct since I can log into the game.
I've tried launching from Steam and from the Ragnarok install folder. Nothing's changed.
