F35A Ligthning II Client hangs at 86% loading Multiplayer data

Postby GaryArmstrong » Fri Jul 08, 2016 6:55 pm

Client and host are running P3D v3.3. I can run a F-22 Raptor 525 Fighter Squadron (Eglin AFB) in Multiplayer but always get stuck at the same place with the F-35A Lightning II (Eglin AFB). The scenery loads but the Multiplayer data always hangs at 86%. However, If the client doesn't select "Share Aircraft" in the "Main Lobby", the client starts in the air, but this does us no good.

While the client is locked up,If the Host exits Multiplayer the client gets the message that the Host has "disconnected". At that point I can attempt to reconnect the client but always with the same results, 86% of Multiplayer data and the client hangs?

Hello Gary,

The included F-35A has a very complex set of panels and gauges. In shared cockpit, much if this data is serialized which could produce the hang. Are you sure the hang is indefinite?

Also, is the host already in session when the other client attempts to share? If so, you may want to try having the host wait for the joining client to completely load before starting the simulation. This can be accomplished by having both the host and the client in the lobby at the same time. The client can then share with the host's aircraft. Upon the host launching the session, the host and the client should being to load. The host should then wait for joining client to complete loading before starting the simulation.
