Description: Host machine is almost identical to mine. The only differences are the graphics card, which is a 2080ti with 11GB of video ram, and Windows 10 20H2. The host also has port 5121 forwarded to their machine. No idea if clients should have that too.
During multiplayer games (playing the main campain), transitions into, or out of new buildings (Such as the ruins very early game) causes the client to effectively freeze, while the character stands there, and only the camera can be zoomed in and out. During this time, the host is sitting on a loading screen, that claims it’s waiting for the clients to load.
Disconnecting the client (backing out to the main menu) resumes the game for the host machine, and allows a new direct connection from the client, but the client starts with whatever the saved character had before the first join (in my case nothing at all, at level 1), which is not ideal, when the host of level 5+.
These transition crashes do not happen in single player (or multiplayer, with no clients) for either machine.
The only thing added to the game is the client extension. The game is installed on the C drive outside the program files folder on both machines. Also pretty sure there are no compatibility settings in place on either machine.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
