Bad HOME Welcoming =(

11 replies 475 views Edited Aug 29, 2013

From time to time I like to jump in HOME to visit the old and explore the new additions to the community. This time around, I wanted to surprise-visit a good friend.

 

I prepared the gateway & traversed into HOME

PS3///XMB/PlayStation Network/PlayStation Home

 

At the other side I found myself in limbo; I was nowhere but indeed I was somewhere. You see, on previous travels I was materialized at the common area, but this time I was left dematerialize and taken to the navigation menu to choose where to travel to.  Traveling to any area was surreal. The HOME I got to experience was spiritless, a ghost infected world at a moment in which perhaps HOME was vibrating at just the right frequency to be able to collide with a different dimension.

 

I've been visiting HOME since its first Beta stage and never have I experienced something like this. There was no background music nor any environmental sound effects. Other people's characters were not loading at all and those who did, did not load properly [ghosts.]  Out of the 6 places I went to, only the Dr.WHO space had background music and environmental sound effects. Only two character loaded up in this area and they were as ugly as my characters [You know, you had to wear that special alien suit] Come on, not even a single normal looking character loaded up for me Smiley Mad

 

After an hour, I gave up. All I wanted to do was visit a good friend not dive into technical errors and whatnot Smiley Sad

 

Is HOME, again, getting to bloated?

 

Can I get a hug; only you are capable of understanding how I currently feel Smiley Sad

Awwwww, Xuchi. It's not always like that, it just depends on which spaces you visit. I don't understand why the avatars weren't loading for you though, sometimes it takes a while for everything to load.

 

Next time I'm free, I'll happily show you around Home. You know you can jump on and join me anytime Smiley Happy

*Hugs* I actually like being able to choose where to load first via Navigator, but sorry you were unable to get people and music to load in the spaces you visited. Hope this doesn't discourage you from trying again sometime!

Did you clear caches?

Did you Delete and Reinstall Home?

Is it your Internet Connection?

Did you regulary wait till it finishs load the space up and everything else (at least 5 minutes or more)

Did you check your TV Volume?

 

or something like that.

 

Also do you mean the Silences (Silence will fall)

Sorry you didn't like the "spawn in navigator". It's something the community actually asked for. Cat Frustrated

Usually when avatar and music take a long time to load is when there's a lot of people at the instance. But yeah, there is a lot of wait as new places become more and more "technically advance". 

 

Next time you want to visit us. Feel free to send me a FR if you don't have any friends on Home. I'll be happy to show you around.

 

... As long as it's not in normal week days work hours Smiley Wink

If you have not been on Home for awhile it is best to start at your Harbor apartment space. Then via navigator download spaces you would like to go to using the triangle controller key.

Once the spaces are fully downloaded you will get a notification. Now you are safe to hop to the spaces you have downloaded and they should take less time to populate.

Oh and even though I do not know you, here is your {{hugz}}. Smiley Happy Mur

Thank you guys for the hugs Smiley Embarassed Smiley Happy

 

 

@Legendary_Vicki: I will take you on that, highlander Alala   Thanks for the hug

---------

 

 

@StephieRawks: *Hugs*  I guess routine is what threw me off. After thinking about it, being given the option to choose where to be materialized-at is a nice feature, one that saves users a couple of extra steps.

---------

 

 

@Dr_Do-Little: <HUGZ>Thanks for the info. I did not know this behavior was a granted community wish Smiley Happy 

Too many people sounds like a good possibility. I have been in a space with too many people many times before. The latest big event that I attended in HOME was the E3 booth. No issues there.

---------

 

 

@bookepride: I was expecting to meet up with my friend. I was expecting for HOME (all that makes HOME) to work as it normally does for me.
