Did you try it with X-Camera disabled? Did that still freeze?

I don't have XCamera installed - and it freezes for me...

Wasn't going to mention this until I'd had the chance to investigate further, but at one point in the testing we did I moved a large distance away from the airfield in a single jump and the performance went to complete pot. The XPlane log was showing the system re-loading both other aircraft every two seconds - which slowed it down significantly to the point where it was unflyable.

Eventually it settled down, but that could have been one of three (or possibly more) issues... a) I was getting closer to the airfield where my two colleagues were on the ground, b) one of them (the one who was appearing under the other chap when he reconnected) disconnected so there was only one aircraft on the airfield, or c) I had substituted the model for the chap who'd disconnected with a non-Laminar model.

I'll look into it some more when I get some time. The important thing for me is to get across that I don't think a conflict with XCamera can be causing this.

I've attempted to fix both the co-location and loading bugs in 1.3.3.

Let me know how it goes.

Just to re-iterate what FireRx said...

No recurrence of either issue when flying with a mix of pilots - including picnic who had an FSX and a P3D instance sat on the same LAN.

We'll carry on testing though and let you know how we get on.

Who had X-Plane 11 and P3D on the same LAN ;) I did ensure my 2 computers had different local ports but I didn't have port forwarding enabled to either of them (I forgot :()

Things did indeed work very well last night. Great job Peter.

That's great news, I can relax now. :)

Thanks
