[1.1.70][switch] Can not join a specific game

Post by Cloudnine »

I am hosting a game on PC. I join the game on a switch. This worked for several days until yesterday. Today I can't rejoin the same save.
If I'm hosting a new game on the Switch, I can join from PC.
If I'm hosting a new game on PC, I can join using Switch as well.
So there seems to be a problem with the savegame.
There is no error message in the log file.
I play the basic version without mods.

If it is stalling while catching up then the switch is simply too slow.

Realy? So "Factorio for Nintendo Switch is now available" means "Factorio for Nintendo Switch may be available for future faster switches"?
Or "only up do 20 chunks maps"?

When I host the given save game on PC and join via Switch, it works just fine for me. What exactly is the behaviour that you see on the switch?

Edit: Turns out I needed to wait longer, then it the game crashes on the switch. I have forwarded the issue.
I'm an admin over at https://wiki.factorio.com. Feel free to contact me if there's anything wrong (or right) with it.

I managed to reproduce the issue (sometimes). Moved to bug reports.

It looks like our transport belt recursive logic sometimes causes the Nintendo Switch console to run out of stack memory.
I will investigate a fix. The issue is caused by the extremely long ammo line, so for now you can temporarily fix the save by splitting it up (belt->inserter->belt for example).

This should be fixed in the next Nintendo Switch release.

With version 1.1.72 we were able to play together again and the error didn't occur.

Thanks

I was wrong, the error still occurs in version 1.1.72, but interrupting the belt line works as a workaround.

Releases on Nintendo Switch take some time so the fix is not out yet.
It's currently planned for Version 1.1.73, but since there's no beta branch, it will be released in that version only if 1.1.73 is stable.
