Can not see other AI's liveries on Multiplayer

Postby muadib25 » Sun May 13, 2012 12:02 am

Hello everyone!

I just installed Flightgear 2.6.0.1 on a Windows machine. Everything works on Multiplayer except when others change Livery on their aircraft, I cannot see the change...

I also checked this locally running another FG instance at my Linux box.
The Linux instance could 'see' the livery changes I was making on the Windows aircraft, but not the opposite...


Any clues as to where I should look for solving this?

Thank you very much!

Can I assume you have the same version on the Linux box and that the aircraft in question are the same version on both boxes? :wink:

Hmm.. nope... :cry:

The Windows version is v2.6.0.1
The Linux version is yesterday's Git
The aircraft is C172p

I also did a local test, as suggested on the http://wiki.flightgear.org/Livery_over_MP#Testing page:
On the Linux box I loaded 2 local instances,
one with:
Code: Select all
fgfs --multiplay=out,10,localhost,5702 --multiplay=in,10,localhost,5701

and one with:
Code: Select all
fgfs --multiplay=out,10,localhost,5701 --multiplay=in,10,localhost,5702

and both instances could watch the other aircraft change liveries...

Could this only be a version issue? If so then there is no problem, apart from my silliness (baps head on wall!)
