OK folks, here is the result of my labbing TWDB vs the lockup bug. It is amazing how much we have come to be totally spoiled by TWDB script (why inno does not already have all of TWDB's goodies in the game is another question). Disabling TWDB is out of the question! Yes, it fixes the lockep but I refuse to lose TWDB's other goodies which are waaay too many to even begin to list here. Some examples are shop search & especially the ff ranking screen.
First of all "uncheck show labor points and LP" does not work for me. There is also at least another such setting that looks the very same but I did not lab that one. Besides the insults from roland which he never went into detail on, he claims something about "safe area" in one of his posts and that tells me in the past he had already tweaked his version of TWDB. He is a bit of a script person and probably assumes we all know what we really do not know.
Even if that uncheck worked, I would hate it cuz labbing that resulted in no LP from equipped gear showing on job window, so that is a no go for me. I need my LP for jobs!
SOLUTION (actually a workaround and a bit painful). Do NOT disable TWDB nor change settings. Live with the lockup! When the game locks up queuing a new job, just hit REFRESH and everything is fine again!
You can no longer update clothcalc cuz you will get "out of range" error but we stopped using clothcalc for jobs years ago when inno finally put its version ingame. Clothcalc gives us other goodes that have nothing to do with gear equipping, so we need it.
