Bug : Various issues on Friends Only Game
- I encountered the issue on PC (xbox game pass version)
2 of my friends joined me also on PC (also xbox game pass)
We all played offline and solo first with the tutorial and I didn't notice any issues, I even played a mission solo offline and only had a few stutters.
I was playing as Drizzt and then invited my friends to my game. Under a custom game as friends.
They had a few issues but eventually after a few game crashes were able to join.
Then as were going to start the mission, I couldn't interact with the map at all.
The X button pulsed as if interacted with but it didn't work. But I am party lead. So I had to be the one to work with it.
My friends could open the map fine, but since they weren't party lead they could not pick anything.
- Easy fix, I kick them both and make one of them invite us in.
Now I can't interact with merchant, or map and I lost all my consumables, armour, weapons and even abilities.
So my character with one mission under its belt is weaker than a lv1 new character.
(also litany of lag on UI of menus where it make me take longer to do anything because I didn't know if it was opening window and was slow or it had not done anything.)
I'm wondering if there isn't a potential for client based dodging and movement.
Just to stop people feeling lag on their side.
Since there is no pvp it shouldn't be too broken to allow people with higher ping to not suffer in the game.
Ideally LAN option would be fantastic as I'd actually be able to play with friends here that have bought the gamepass.(South africa, your servers are hella far)
Also find attached your rather humorous placeholder for when I lost my abilities. I stopped playing after this happened but I did have a good laugh at the "and all that jazz".
