FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions about the Palace software and chat environment.

Q. How do I get started?
A. Starting out with The Palace is easy! You'll need to:

Q. When I try to start Palace, it says "Props File: -1". What's wrong?
A. The "Props File -1" error means that the Palace.prp file, which is the file that contains your props and is located in the Palace directory,
has become corrupted. This is the file you should back up so you don't lose your props. If you don't have a backup, you can download a new Palace.prp
file
. Replace the Palace.prp file in your Palace directory with the one you downloaded, and Palace should open for you again.

Q. How do I page a wizard?
A.
While on any palace server, type in the following command:
    `page I need help
Of course, replace this with whatever your message is.

Q: Message during setup: "Corrupt Installation Detected" or "An I/O error
occurred".

A: One of two things will usually cause this message. The first would be that your hard drive is almost full. Check and see if you have enough hard drive space left. If you do, then you may have received a partial or bad download. Sometimes this is caused by line noise. This is a fairly common problem and is nothing to be alarmed about. Delete the setup file you currently have and download a new one. It is recommended that while you are downloading that you remain as inactive as possible online during thedownload so everything goes smoothly!
