"Perk progress has been disabled?"

#1AngusYoung93Posted 5/20/2009 2:38:05 PM
Seems like if I ever do a long game in solo, perk progress is randomly disabled in the middle of it. I need to do 200k more damage with shotguns to get to level 4, but whenever I do any amount of damage, perk progress is disabled. Anyone know what's causing it? I'm not doing sandbox, custom length, or anything like that. It's really frustrating that I have to keep starting every solo game over if I want to progress with any perks.

You can only progress if you're also online connected to steam and such, offline mode doesn't work.

Did you previously enable cheats or use the console for anything?

It's impossible to do something cool without outraging someone. In fact, I usually judge how cool I'm being by how many angry people are following me with signs

I'm connected to Steam. It stops working in the middle of a game.

That might be it. Sometimes I accidentally hit ` instead of esc.

its possible that you lose connection to steam during the game. I have lost connection to steam while playing tf2 (still connected to the server) and I couldnt use my unlocks

Having sandbox on disables progression, too.

I'm not doing Sandbox. I hit "solo" and I set the game length to "long" and I hit start. Sandbox isn't on. Perks will go up for about 3 or 4 waves, then they'll stop.

That's probably it. The internet connection where I'm at is pretty crappy.
