      My installation directory is

      C:\Program Files (x86)\Frontier\EDLaunch\Products\FORC-FDEV-D-1003

      Not the one stated in the link.

      So is that so they can see the issues or is that a fix?  I’m confused.

      Nope, not a fix, but getting the logs out of your E:D folder and into Frontier’s hands might help them fix it…

      Personally, I’d configured a NAT rule to a specified port for E:D – my firewall admin (me) doesn’t like uPNP…

      As per:

      elite set custom port forward

      But, I notice that the specified changes are overwritten whenever I get an E:D update.  Which isn’t too useful.

      Just make sure you enable the logging first, then when we have an issue, they want the logs from all in the wing…

      So, my appConfig.xml now has the following in the network block:

      <Network
      Port=”51000″
      upnpenabled=”0″
      LogFile=”netLog”
      DatestampLog=”1″
      ReportSentLetters=”1″
      ReportReceivedLetters=”1″
      VerboseLogging=”1″
      >

      upnpenabled=”0″ – self explainatory

      Port=”51000″ – the UDP port you’d want to forward from your firewall

      Everything else:

      logging stuff.

      @Vyvian @DaMorgs @Furstaide – I posted a ticket with my netlog, last night was disheartening not being able to properly instance.

       

      Did it get any better after you took the fight “home”?

      @Hazara; do you think could be related to the # of commanders in the system?

      In a really active system (near the 32 limit), if you turn up in a wing of 4 it pushes you out of instance or something?

      Nope – no CMDRs at all – and we were looking for them! LOL

      We did bump into a non-Angeli CMDR, a Patreus man in a FDL.

       

      Ended up winged with him sharing points with Viv & Taragocia.

      Well, there goes that theory.

      Maybe everyone else in the entire known universe was in bed?

      They’ve definitely broken something between Thurs night and Fri night AEST.

      Flying was as smooth as silk Wed/Thu. Not _too_ many dramas with transaction server with respect to getting / updating missions via the station BBSes

      After the forced E:D Launcher install Fri night:
      – graphics jerky, particularly when doing “high-G” manoevers
      – often _very_ slow to update bulletin board when Accepting a mission
      – exiting SC also quite dodgy compared to last two patches

      – graphics update a bit better today (so restart between E:D launches), but other two issues persistent.

      Bizarrely, graphics screen update is tied to their netcode, the latter they appear to have “pooched” right royally – again :@

      :-/


      Oi! That's Baron von Schnellenstein to you, mate. No, it doesn't matter that I'm an Imperial Prince!

      Agreed – having no end of bollox tonight.

      ages to actually connect, and my FSD tether doesn’t trigger most of the time…

      Although, some of that is probably tied to my mainboard dying…

      and an email..

       

      Hi there,

      Such problems are usually encountered when one of the connected clients is unable to use UPnP to open a port on their NAT. The game is then forced to fall back onto a backup system. This system is unfortunately not 100% reliable and will cause this behaviour.

      Additionally, there seems to be a bug in the latest release that prevents clients connected through the same router to communicate with each other. This should be resolved shortly.

      I have checked the files you have attached and they seem to indicate that your connection is correctly configured to allow playing elite without such problems. There are however a lot of cases where communication was impossible because messages were received damaged beyond repair and had to be discarded.

      In this case, the issues likely originated on one of the other clients, I’m afraid.

      Fly Safe and Kind Regards,


      CMDR Vega

      My galaxy map suggests that I have a shed load of missions around where we were last night.

      i think they’re likely to all fail somehow 😉

      Hahaha, great fun guys. A little one sided, but that’s how it appears, due to the overwhelming might of the Empire.
      On topic: I’ll set this up too, make sure I’m not holding us back. Judging from last night though, it was running well.

      I got a message back from support on my ticket – all positive, specially when he signed off “Hail the Emperor”

       

      Its definately worth logging and posting your logs!
