Thanks Rapidus.

So far the crash appears to be an isolated incident, I've yet to see it happening again.

Brief description: coop mission, friend couldn't spawn
Detailed description, conditions: 

i was hosting a coop server for me and my friend, for a couple hours we tried to get it working, which we eventually did. He wanted to spawn in as a bf 109 f4 but it said that he is already spawned. He could start his engine, but he still saw the briefing and spawn selction screen. I flew over the spawn area but couldn't see any plane. When i shot at the spawn area he could very well hear all the shots.

Just for the record, during the past month the server locked up 5 times in total.

Every time the reason was unknown but the result was the same:

Server load looked just normal (in contrast to the crashes we've witnessed long time ago when the CPU load would always be 100%).

DServer.exe becomes unresponsive.

Server is listed ingame, but you cannot join it - click on it, and you get back to the server list within a split second.

Brief description: Fake_vehicle with spotter causes heavy load.

Detailed description: On our Finnish VirtualPilots server, we introduced a target type that includes a fake_vehicle that has the "spotter" functionality on with 15 km radius. This seems to create an increasing load whenever there are enemy planes in the spotter area. See attached image.

Wow... interesting report, thanks for the heads up.

May I ask whether you know what those "chat log" lines in the log are about? Can't remember having seen such before.

Actually, might be caused by my own booboo of using a single spawner for multiple objects, let’s see.

 

Chatlog entries are the campaign application sending messages to the game and forcing the chatlog writing.

Great, sorry for the sarcasm, how am I supposed to look for a problem? Give me a mission, video recording of the process to start.

Will do, once it happens next time. (Saying this will now probably fix the issue.) :)

Edit: But for the time being, I only have the first log file of that happening: http://stats.virtualpilots.fi:8000/static/LogWithVictory.zip

Brief description: Friends can't join anymore since 4.007

Detailed description: Before the patch I hosted a lot self-build dogfight missions (from the in-game menu, not dserver) for me and 3 friends. Since the update it simply doesn't work anymore. They can click on my server, they get a loading screen, they get a notification that some files are downloaded. But as soon as the loading screen is finished they get thrown back to the dogfight-server menu without any error message. I double checked my firewall and port-forwarding, I reinstalled the whole game, I resaved my mission editor files, I even created new missions. Nothing works. :(

I am thankful for every hint that might help.

 

<EDIT 14.06.2020>

I tested to host a lot of other games, where I also need port-forwarding. Every single one works! I also tested if I can reach the specific IL-2 ports with a different software , so I know they are definetly not blocked by my router and/or firewall. They aren't.

I also changed the ports in the Options/Multiplayer Menu to some others that work perfectly with another game.

Still nobody can connect to my server.

 

There is only one weird thing I figured out:

In TCP_VIEW for almost every program the local and remote address is <the dynamic name of my pc>.

But for IL2 its <the dynamic name of my pc>.mshome.net   

Does somebody know what this actually means?

 

Thank you in advance for any help. cheers.

 

 

<EDIT 14.06.2020> ---> PROBLEM SOLVED!

 

It really was a problem with DNS. It's still strange though, because no other game has this problem, but in the end it wasn't that hard to solve.

If you have VPN / Virtual Machine / Docker stuff on your computer, il-2 can apparently change your IP address to a remote/virtual one and nobody can join you.

In such a case you just have to go to OPTIONS / MULTIPLAYER and look at the list of available IPs. 

Then you have to manually(!) type the correct one (local address of your machine) into the field USE IP

At least this fixed the problem for me.

 

 

(Sorry if I might not explain it correctly, but I am really not a network specialist)

In the multiplayer on the Finnish VirtualPilots' server have notice a map icon bug - usually it shows the near by to targets/af planes number and tanks number as well....

Yesterday I have notice that nevertheless that the target camp has been attacked by 2 Tigers on the map there was no icon for tanks next to the target camp icon.

Same happen today just last mission.... Have the track file but in the track file you do not see the map :( - I know, will try next time to make some screen capture recording but just giving you information that there is such a bug.

 

If it should be in different section, please move that post there....

As I wrote - logs are available, just let me know. (Add-on due to comments: the plane was visible in tacview and in the records - so it's not the usual "invisible-plane-bug" where the planes are invisible even in the log-Files until the moment they fire. I'm still shocked I wasn't able to detect that plane - see pictures. Anyhow - it seems to be no good example for the usual "invisible-plane-bug" )

 

And another one on a guns-bug I never had before and never heard from:

@=LG=Kathon, the problem is that the specified modifications in "Available Mods" do not have priority over the list of "WeaponMods"? do I understand the problem correctly?
