Westover Islands has been plagued by a slew of connection issues upon joining the game that those affected say doesn’t happen at any other game. After researching the problem with my community it appears that it mostly affects Windows users. There doesn’t appear to be any specific OS version that deals with this.
I had a friend join the game knowing that he experienced this issue incessantly. The client successfully connected to the game long enough for my own client scripts to successfully boot themselves, but the server inevitably kicked him a moment later and left this in his log files:
This issue does not occur for all Windows users, and for those it does affect the frequency varies drastically. I’ve personally experienced it on a few rare occasions, but most people I talked to say that it happens every time they join my game and that they need to rejoin “3-20 times” before they successfully connect. For those it affects, it’s a massive deterrence to spend time at my games and it’s driving my player counts down.
I personally cannot reproduce this error myself, as it really appears to only affect random machines.
Duration of Bug
I reported something similar to this all the way back in August. From what I remember, my current problems are similar to what I was dealing with then only far more pervasive.
Here’s a sampling of specs from people that were experiencing this, you can find a lot more
OS: Windows 10 Home, CPU: i7-8700K 3.7GHz 6-Core, GPU: GTX 1080 8GB, RAM: 16GB DDR4-3000
OS: Windows 10 Home, CPU: Pentium 2020M 2.4 GHz, GPU: Intel HD Graphics, RAM: 4GB
The variance in specs leads me to believe this isn’t a spec issue, but hey.
I could really use any assistance I can get, this issue is driving my game’s traffic downward and I have no idea how to solve it.
