Server Stuck on Generic IFR Tr Mission

Server Stuck on Generic IFR Tr Mission

Postby Flyco » 16 Apr 2019, 20:33

After the problems this evening, I restarted the Server and left it on the only mission it would appear to run. The Generic Caucasus IFR Training Mission.

It seems to work OK with this, but will not load anything else.

Now this is a strange one? Would it not let you select another mission or just failed to load them from the list?

Not quite sure. Both Neil and I tried several times. It looked as though it was going to load the requested mission, but it turned out - eventually - to be loading the previous one.

I went back in later and it was the same. So I reloaded the generic mission, checked that it was working, and left it at that. At least we have a mission that people can fly until it is sorted.

Ade is going to get Kieran to take a look asap.

Am in touch with Kieran but with his wife and newborn still in hospital it's a lower priority for him at the moment but he'll have a look when he gets back home.
Sometimes stuff is supposed to fall off....sometimes not.
I still can't be sure which... :?

No sweat, Ade. The Server is useable at the moment, albeit on the IFR training setting. It will do people good to fly in adverse weather conditions. Although those conditions are not too bad.

Ok guys Kieran has done a full reboot and checked it over, the pc is fine and hasn't been hacked. Any problems are likely to be software. Anyway, play with it and let me know if you have any problems.

I have fixed the issue, it seems the mission list had become slightly bugged, to fix it all I had to do was delete the whole list of server missions and replace them. I have also moved some of our most used mission from Dropbox in to the saved games/missions folder (as I do not know how to select them direct from Dropbox) and all is well again.

It is loading all missions once again, but I shall keep an eye on it.

I think it has been sorted. I was examining a print-out of the files and logs and noted that the Server was unable to load several requested missions, because they were not in the SavedGames folder.

As I was doing this, some Guardian Angel appeared on the Server and sorted it by removing all the files with the wrong address and replacing them in the correct directory. This appears to have fixed it.

I will let it go quiet and then just check that I can load the newly positioned missions. In the meantime if anyone is that Guardian Angel, or knows who its is - Thank you.

There should be some way of knowing who is working on the server, and to talk to them - I presume that is what the Chat feature is for.

Apologies Alan, I'm guessing that was me interfering at the same time, I had an idea and just acted (next time i will post a comment in the chat)
