Tower!3D Pro Multiplayer Hanging


Recommended Posts

Since adding on JFK months ago, my buddy and I can no longer get a multiplayer game up and running. We can both play single player without any problems, and we used to play multiplayer regularly together.

When we attempt to play a multiplayer game at any airport now, the host of any game will get to 90% loaded and sit there forever while the other person sits at 81%. The host will start to hear radio traffic from airplanes, so we know the game hasn't hung or crashed.

-This behaviour will completely reverse if we change who is hosting the game
-Port 21112 and 22222 are open on both sides
-Hamachi doens't work either (this is how we used to connect and play all the time)
-Have adjusted time of day to a variety of numbers
-Have started the game as Admin

Any ideas on what could be going on and how we can solve this?

This symptom is typical of the airport directory not being identical.  In the case of JFK it would the the Extensions/Airfields/KJFK folder.

What may happen at times is that the game will get as far as announcing landing or departing aircraft but the loading still says 90%.

All files in the directory MUST be identical. Even if they are the same size something may be wrong with one of the files, such as an extra space in a file.
