Since the introduction of the new character creation system I have been unable to progress past the customsation section. I customise my character, click on next to render the portrait and then... nothing. The timer keeps whirring away, for hours and it never renders. I have raised a petition about this but like many of the other problems I have raised the petition has been closed without resolution. I use an Athlon64 dual core system running Mandriva with 4Gb memory with an Nvidia Geforce 8300 256Mb video card. Has anyone else come across this problem and has a fix? I might be forced to borrow a Windows machine (shudder) just to fix this most irritating glitch.
