Problem joining.

Postby 511Flyer » Fri Feb 10, 2017 10:43 am

During a test session with one other person, him in FSXSE and myself in FSX, I encountered a problem. Sometimes I could join him but not him to me, and vice versa.

When the problem occurs, I see this in my log. We don't understand why. Can you help please?

Hi Dennis,

Could you tick the record log box, please, and then post/PM the full log file. I need to see what happened earlier on.

Thanks,
Peter

Thanks for the quick reply Peter. That shot is all I had from that session. The person I was with at that time isn't available at the moment, so I can't try again until he is.

I have just loaded FSX and JoinFS, this is what I see. I don't know if that helps.

Hi Peter.

Last evening I flew with two others, each of us using a different sim. Myself in FSX, the others in FSXSE and P3d. We joined without any problems whatsoever. The next session will be between the two of us who experienced the original problem. I'll keep you posted.

Hello Dennis,
you are running FSX-X without service packs (version 61637)
Read the stuff on our web searching 61637 in the search field.
Hit and you will find 4 articles; upgrade with SP1 and SP2 first.

Download the SimConnect as described in the JoinFS manual.
You may want to download for our download location.

Good luck

Peter. The original problem has arisen again during testing with the same user in MP.

I have sent you a PM via this forum.

Dennis.

I've not received a reply to date, despite sending copies of my log.

However, we seem to have resolved the problem ourselves. One thing that we have done, is to change all the traffic settings to zero in FSX before we fly. This stops the disabling of objects that occur during flight. Flying outside multiplayer, I just reset traffic as desired.

I'm happy now Peter, and have just made a donation.

Hi Dennis,

Apologies for not responding to the PM. I think I may have confused this with a similar thread or simply overlooked it.

I suppose it's a good idea to set the traffic slider for multiplayer if it's not required for the session. I'm still not sure what the underlying problem was but I shall keep an eye out for it in case it occurs again.

Thanks for the donation. Appreciated. :)

Peter
