    Title: BOth a ghost and alive (looking as the ghost though)
    Reproduction Rate:
    Blocker? Yes, cannot ressurect
    Details: Game crashed again right as I died in brightbone pass, I logged back in quick, but as I appeared as a ghost, my "live" self also appeared and I was stuck as a ghost. Hard to explain and I do not know how to post pictures, I will take a screen shot though just in case someone can show me how to post it.w
    Steps to Reproduce: Not sure I could as I cannot control the game crashes (it is somewhat frequent)

    Tried to take the screen shot and realized that I was actually alive but in the ghost world... because I got attacked again and killed again. And I could use cards, etc.
    Error message when I left and tried to restart game.
    Steam - Error
    Failed to start game (app already running).

    This is going to be tricky, but have you been able to reproduce it since? Perhaps what caused the crash in the first place at the moment of death? In the past we knew of some loopholes that would kill/not kill players, which we've plugged accordingly. I'm interested to know what might have caused this instance.

    Let me try to do it again. Was in Friends only mode, had PVP on so I will redo that just in case. Will let you know. Should I try to capture something if I do it again?

    Crashes at 2:28 and 2:41 NBT. Each time the only commonality was the tolling of the control point bell. And there was weird behavior with the bell and the control flag when I got back in.

    Yay, reproduced at 2:45 while typing. I died in the control point itself this time and it crashed right after. I think it was 3 times before as well before the Dead/Alive state. Not sure what to do to capture this.

    This happened to my friend when he was partied with me, hed crashed and died at about the exact moment he timed out. When he came back in he was alive to me but to him he was a ghost and couldnt res. leaving the zone fixed it.

    Do you know where you were? I found a reproducible spot, wondering if there are others.

    No idea, other than we were fighting skeletons and zombies near a zone entrance, had only been playing a day or so and we travelled a lot.

    This happened to me too. I died in a room I couldn't get out of and had to log out and back in on world map. I wound up being alive and dead at same time. Zoning resulted in the same issue, alive and dead at same time. After all my gear eventually breaking (each time I zoned it counted as a death) I finally decided to zone into a hostile area and purposely get killed again. Once I died "as a ghost" I was dead for real and could finally resurrect using an ankh. Ankhs did nothing before that.
