Out of sync errors on Linux version (1.14)

Post by teamleader » September 8th, 2018, 2:32 pm

I'm getting out of sync errors when doing multiplayer with people on windows (everyone using the latest Wesnoth version).

It happens on every map and stats when an unit gets killed.

That means you or someone you play with uses unsafe addon.

Maybe, but it also happened twice on Isar's cross with no addons, just default era.

Are you sure that none of the other players had any addons either? Or edited their game data files? If every kill caused OOS someone would have noticed.

Not every kill caused it, but it usually started when an unit died (it either died for me and didn't die for the other players or vice versa). Some matches went fine.

If just having an addon installed without using it in the match can cause it, then that makes more sense.

Add-ons can potentially do that, but it is against the rules of the add-ons server(8b) for them to do so.

Yeah it's likely some add-on that caused this, removed some of them and the error stopped.
