    thx for clarifying
    Also would like to mention the trade tab disapears when chat comes back by itself

    Usually chat comes back when visiting another island for a minute or a bit longer.
    For some reason the trade tab comes back when you go home.
    Or atleast that's my experience.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I must say that i find win8 very unstable.
    Every time i come back from another program the chat fails.
    (sometimes even when coming back from another chrome-tab in the same window)
    Lately chat fails aswell when my screen goes on standby.

    It's a i7 2,4 ghz quadcore with 6gb internal memory and 2 original videocards.
    I'm not saying it's t.s.o. but i can't believe it's my fresh out of the box laptop.
    Most likely it's Chrome indeed, but i would like to keep running t.s.o. in it.

    Crashes happen when i have many heavy things running but just as often when i only run t.s.o.
    With many heavy things running it's usually the shockwave player that crashes (the game entirely)
    I fully understand that but the chatfails (like 10x a day) are very annoying.

    The one with a good solution for this deserves a shiny medal

    Every time I've had this, it's been due to connection issues, rather than machine issues. Mostly when using wireless connections as well
    I'm more than likely working right now.

    This only happens to me if I use IE when using chrome everything is mostly fine but on IE I lose everything within seconds and then it comes and goes like a yoyo .. gave up with it in the end. :-(

    Hi , Ive been having the same issue , and just recently. It's not my PC, I built it myself for gaming . Specs can run any game I want at this time. I've tried chrome and firefox and ie and non seem to be any better than others. Its been worse this last week or so and its crashing all the time . Server Call Fail, chat not working and half the time access to the buildings is non-existant till I log out....reload . I am not running any other tabs..windows etc . I do however , still us xp. I'm a die hard and it has always seemed the most stable os to me . I have one pc with 7, one with 8. Just like xp .I'd have to agree with Urkles assessment of comes and goes like a yo-yo. Thought I should post so people aware this is an issue. I've tried the suggested "fixes" to no avail. Thanks

    Since last night's maintenance, chat server is either taking an age to load, or not even bothering.

    Hmm for those that have it often, could you try and change the amount of data that the game is allowed to store.
    • Right-click somewhere in the game
    • Click "Settings"
    • Go to the middle tab, should be called "Local storage"
    • Change the setting to 10 Mb



    Also would be nice to know if the prevention measures posted by Jamdoggy helps you.
    Sorry for necroing an old post but this happens to my chat window all the time, every couple of minutes, its impossible to even use the chat
    because i cant sustain a conversation.

    Ive tried to alter the local storage settings but when I right click on the game screen to alter the Flash Player settings
    I only see 3 tabs not all 5 tabs shown. Local storage tab is missing.

    Im using windows 10 and FireFox and at this time the latest version of flash 20,0,0,235

    How can I enable all 5 tabs in the flash settings menu so I can even attempt to increase the local storage Settlers uses to try to cure
    the chat problem ( i dont even know if this will affect it)

    Thanks

    Unstable chat server

    seems to be affecting Sandycove a lot lately, with chat resetting with annoying regularity. Other servers seem fine with it being a rare occurrence.

    Merged
