    Default FF online Multiplayer TPP cordnated testing times - availability staus

    The online Multiplayer has become live and those in the TPP need to test it.

    So , since we are so few [ATM] and far between, I think it best that some some sort of meeting point be made to organize as many as possible of those in the TPP to be online at the one time, race online, then report back.

    Sort of like the old Bling Brigade Thread ...Ouch, the nightmares of that are flooding back.

    Any proposed meeting should be in GMT [same as BB rules], adjust to your time for meet up.
    Probably the best chance of success is to use this thread to communicate between each other during a meet, as on my only single attempt at FF online play, with only one other player [the host ] everything was VERY shakey, and ultimately ended up as with my PC freezing.

    I need some comments from those on the TPP to help sort this out if it is to be viable.

    If you're 10 hours ahead of us, it's probably best if we do it in the morning so you can have an evening session. We'll have to sort out an alternative for any US TPP members too

    I was online at around 2.30 -3.30am my time on Friday and I had one race with a full grid, but I could hardly keep my eyes open, let alone race.
    The results were the same as my first online experience, with FF & Steam freezing once the race was over, but thankfully the ship handling wasn't nearly as bad as the first online experience.

    Soon they're going to set up online meetings on the steam forums too.

    R8 are doing a multiplayer server test tomorrow, from 9:30-10:00 and 18:00-18:30 BST. Devs will be playing too, so if anyone can get online during these times at all it would help

    Darn it, missed it by about a hour, nobody online ATM.

    I don't know about the rest of you, but each time I try online no finish position is ever shown, usually it's straight back to the loading screen, thanks if the game hasn't frozen

    hi ericd7

    I was playing against you earlier today - I see you are GMT+1 - altho I was hosting from Los Angeles from what I saw you were doing very well - what was it like for you?

    Most of the communication was going on via Discord
    https://discordapp.com/channels/8150...06217796571136

    Our patch/next build will have text chat in the lobby and we will eventually have VOIP built in too.

    hi BW

    that's a bug which we've fixed now - will be in the next patch/update - it's because we all hold the A key down and it sometimes jumps to Continue as the race ends.

    Optimisation on multiplayer isn't a walk in the park but we're working on it. Eventually we'll have our own regional servers but for now it's all on Steam.

    I'm guessing you're at work now otherwise I'd offer to jump on line and play you. About to go to zzz - knackered. Are there any other Australian pilots out there who you know of? We can put a shout out on Twitter, Steam and FaceBook if it would help. Let me know what time suits you and we'll see if we can get something going.
