Hello there, since I’ve been asked to post here I’m going to try to resume all the informations I’ve been able to gather.
The problem I’ve been encountering (aswell as a friend of mine) is disconnections at each and every random hordes when we’re hosting. It only concerns non-hosts players, obviously, and only affects hordes. That means the rest of the map is perfectly fine even when lots of rats are present.
I have no idea when the issue started, we both came back for the Chaos Wastes update after a long break and never had any issue before that.
I’m located in France, and use the Paris Server in Steam. Tried the Berlin one, nothing changed sadly.
My upload speed is 0.90 Mbps (not great, but shouldn’t be the issue) while the download one is 13.75 Mbps.
I’m using mods, but even with them disabled the issue is still here. Friend of mine has no mods and encounters the same problems (and “fixes”)
I have no console log to post for the moment since we stopped playing because of this, I’ll try to provide one later.
So far when I host, from what I can tell:
-Sometimes, no problems are encountered. But most of the time, when a horde spawns, everyone but the host has massive lag spikes and end up disconnected. Sometimes people manage to stay in the game, but are unable to play during the horde.
-Scripted hordes, such as end events, are not concerned by this. As usual, not 100% sure about it, but it feels like it.
-I can host and have no problem but only if the game isn’t full. That means up to two people can join me, but a third one and the issue appears for all of them. I’m certain 2 people and 2 bots work fine, the 3 people 1 bot not 100% sure.
-When I’m the one joining my friend, when the issue starts I can see rats walk in place, or move through walls. No hit registers anymore, but I can still see people playing normally (move around, attack, etc.). I can still take damage from ennemies.
Usually I end up being disconnected, but sometimes I manage to stay in game until the horde finishes and then start playing normally again.
That should be all of it, I’ll try to update if I find anything. Thank you for looking into it, much appreciated.
