i have no clue what is going on, error 4008, but i don’t see failed handshake at all in the log with a ctrl F search, can’t stay connected to the servers for more than 5 minutes without massive desync or flat out disconnections. Was fine before the last patch, still had some disconnections but not this bad.

Steps to reproduce:
I’m not even sure, all i’m doing is launching and playing the game


Time of problems happening:
Nov. 24th after 1.0.7 patch

Since the most recent patch I have been having the main two errors be 4009, and 9999. I am not really sure what 9999 is so I included that console log as well.

steps to reproduce: Boot up game and play the game will desync while playing.

I managed to solve the 4008 problem temporarily by just using a VPN to be able to launch the games :sweat_smile:

what vpn did you use ?

What the hell fatshark are you waiting to fix this issue?
9 Days and a lot of people still can not play! Meanwhile you fix useless balance minor issue, you seriously have to manage your priority list!

I began to be very angry!

Sample below. I had not experienced this issue before Nov 26. It manifests at multiple locations and consistently.

EDIT: Attaching an additional log from the experimental build which is supposed to have more verbose logs. I immediately encountered 4008 on selecting a character from the character select screen.


  • At the operative selection screen, selecting an operative will result in the error
  • If successfully reaching the lobby area (or a match) there will be severe desync issues, characters will not have walking animations, pox walkers will walk off stairs and in games hits will not register.
  • Eventually the game freezes and kicks me back to operative selection. Sometimes this is even followed by a crash to desktop.
  • I am located on the west coast of the US in case this is a regional outage

Issue Description:

I get error 4008 about 50% of the time when leaving the hub for a mission or returning to the hub after the mission.

Crash Report (If Applicable):

Never crashed with error 4008

Steps to Reproduce:
[Please add the steps that can help our QA department in reproducing the issue. For example:]

  1. Join a mission from the Mourningstar (hub) or complete a mission and return to the Mourningstar. I get error 4008 about 50% of the time doing either. Error 4008 also occurs at the same rate joining the Mourningstar from the character select screen. I am not on wifi nor do I use a router. It’s a hardline direct from the modem. This should not be occurring.
