View Full Version : Multiplayer connectivity problems (black screen), 0.921

02-21-2016, 03:13 AM
My friend is still unable to join my multiplayer game, he gets black screen after receiving a message "Successfully joined".

1. I can visit his town, see his character and check his equipment. His town looks a bit strange (http://images.akamai.steamusercontent.com/ugc/316746134560664605/99480F713080069E700A4F335345F66BC7BB7752/), though (lamps are too bright).

2. Everything else works fine, my ports are open, other Soldak's games work too in multiplayer.

3. I can connect to him with no problems. We both running Windows 10.

4. I tried disabling Windows Firewall, it changed nothing. Also enabled DMZ on my router, still no luck.

Well he could help debug the problem by doing the following:
1) Turn on the console in the game options
2) Open the console with ~
3) Type in the following 2 lines into the console and hitting enter at the end of each command
4) n_printMessageNames 1
5) n_printFragments 1
6) Shut the console again with ~
7) Try to connect to your game as usual
8) Send me the log file that should contain message names and fragment data of what happened.

I've saved logs from both computers.

Ok, thanks to those logs I think I know what is going wrong. I made the networking layer smarter about how long to delay fragments, so hopefully this will work better in 0.922.

It seems 0.922 solved this issue. Thanks!
