A player went invisible!

Post by ant » Wed Feb 28, 2018 5:14 am

Hello.

Earlier, my friends (Windows and Linux [like the host/captain] and I (64-bit W7 HPE SP1) played the brand new v17.3 beta. I joined this game late (~30 minutes) since they started without me. Things were going well until one (MuddyFire) of the players couldn't respawn and had to reconnect. https://i.imgur.com/Aro8Dbz.jpg is what he said after I recorded this bug after it started when I asked. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gPQBbZ5fEOc for my short 43 seconds video to see it in action. As you can see, he (not a captain) is invisible while not in the captain's chair. He said the bug started after reconnecting and failing to respawn in the captured ship that we moved into. All players saw invisible MuddyFire player bug. He was like a ghost. ;)

I also suggested the host save this game in his Debian box and reload it to see if the bug stays intact if we could upload the saved game for the developers. Nope! The bug went away. That was a weird one. Has anyone seen this issue? I hope this helps the developers! :/

Thank you in advance. :)

Thank you very much for the detailed report and images

Sorry for the issues, I'll do some testing with the conditions shown in the video and try to replicate and fix it soon

Oh yes. That is one of the bugs that I also meant to report after getting screens etc. but again, it didn't happen when I was loking for it.
I can confirm this bug happens. And actually it is not really uncommon. If someone rejoins or someone new joins the crew is invisible to them (also boarding NPCs) unless in captains seat or on planets. The only thing that helps is rehosting the game.

Ah, so it happened to others. Good. Hopefully, the developers can fix it! Also, this was a first incident for my group. I wonder if it is a new bug.

We've been able to replicate it and are working on a fix. It should be available in the next update.

Just popping in to say that about a week ago this happened with the Engineer on a Stargazer. I was Weapons Specialist, neither of us was hosting, and he claimed (over in-game voice comms) to be right beside me extinguishing the reactor, but I couldn't see him or hear his extinguisher. I did see the reactor core temp change appropriately though, so...

Just had this happen multiple times in one game over the course of a few hours on top of the falling through the world death glitch when using teleporter pad.
