Server weirdness
« on: January 05, 2017, 01:07:53 pm »
I just went to see how the servers are doing, and got about 16 listed as full then four more as Monster/Ultra etc Busy. Going into one of the busy ones, I see it's filled with "Unknown"s. A quick look at the Steam forum shows that at least a couple of other people have posted about this.

Do you know what's going on?

Nnnngh it's this weird Photon bug issue. Keeps on cropping up, keeps on disappearing without a trace. No idea what's causing it. Seems to be there about 20% of the time? Might be more, now.

Since so few people play, I've been working on moving GM to offline only and canning the online side. Just need to find time to upload the patch. It's done, I think.

Photon's the Unity server manager, right? Is it a known issue?

Nope. Spent weeks trawling the docs at one point trying to work out what it'd be, and got nowhere. Problem kept blipping in/ out. I assume it's an update change somewhere, but no idea what.
