just as title said, cannot restore if we’re missing 1 player. ideally we’d want to have reconnection feature, since that isn’t avaialble at the very least allow us to restore without missing players after a crash/desync.

currently if a player is missing, restore for custom mod/game will not start, countdown does nothing until that particular player joins. if they dont join, we must host a brand new game.

:point_down: List CLEAR and DETAILED STEPS we can take to reproduce the issue ourselves… Be descriptive!

Here’s the steps to reproduce the issue:

  1. play game until crash/desync
  2. restore, wait for 1 or 2 players dont join
  3. cannot start the restored game

:arrow_forward: EXPECTED RESULT

:point_down: What was SUPPOSED to happen if the bug you encountered were not present?

can start the restore game with the below:

  1. missing players (replaced by AI or nothing)
  2. allow another player to substitute

@thieftdp8498 this like that by design, in order to restore a multiplayer game, you need the original players from this game.

can this design be changed? to not needing the missing player or have a substitute player/AI so that restore can at least start without them.

otherwise you cannot restore unless you play with people you know

I can talk with the team about it :slight_smile:
