Can't Connect To Server: Map won't get downloaded

Post by Froinchi_ »

Hello everyone. I can't connect to my friend's server, I am having the problem that I attached screenshots of. It says "Trying to apply migration 2019-09-05_FARL_3.1.13.lua(Fully Automated Rail Layer) while joining a multiplayer game" and never connects to server. I have tried the solutions that got recommended on this topic: viewtopic.php?t=44804 , I tried full reinstall of the game, and full reinstall of the mods. Neither solved my problem. I don't know what to do. Please help me, thanks.

I don’t know, maybe someone else will have more ideas, but off the bat, that version of FARL is way out of date. It’s possible the issue you’re encountering has already been solved in a later version. Further, that version of FARL was for Factorio v0.17. That’s all I’ve got. *shrug*

Pretty sure that error is because the game is trying to apply a migration to the save, which shouldn't ever happen loading a multiplayer game - it should already have had any migrations applied when it was loaded by the server.

You should go into your mods folder, find any FARL directories/zip files, and delete them manually. You might have an old version's files stuck somewhere, and reinstalling the game/mods wouldn't remove those old files. That's why the original thread said to remove the steam install folder - in that case it was a base game migration, in this case it's a mod migration so it would be somewhere in the mods folder.

I have notified the server owner. Thanks for the heads up.

I have deleted the Factorio folder in steamapps/common, and deleted the Factorio folder in %appdata%. After this, I clicked verify the game integrity, and downloaded the whole game that way again. Then booted up the game, synced mods with server, and I am still getting the same problem.

That migration is the only migration current FARL has, I don't think it's out of date.

Can others connect to the server? If not, look for the problem on the server side.

Ah, my mistake. After getting some sleep and rereading it, I see now that was simply the migration script's file name, not the mod version itself (in reference to the 3.1.13).

I wonder, what would happen if the OP was to delete the migration folder and its contents from their copy of the mod? Disclaimer: I've never played multiplayer, so no idea if that'll work.

Everyone else except me successfully connects to the server. I will try to find and delete this migration files too, if it works I will update the post.

That cannot be, the game cannot load the migration file if you deleted it. Do you have multiple factorio installations and are deleting stuff in an installation that you aren't actually using? If not, then post the complete log file after a session with the issue, see 52433.

You do have the exact same factorio version, right?
If everyone else can connect, are you sure you cleaned up the right files?

With the exact same error? Because as Loewchen said, that can't happen. You should get at least a checksum error.

Yes, all of us players and the server use 1.1.45 Experimental.
I tried deleting the game from steamapps/common and clicking "verify game integrity", tried uninstalling the game from Steam and reinstalling, tried uninstalling the game from Steam, went to %appdata%/Factorio and deleted the folder and reinstalling, tried to remove Factorio from a program called Revo Uninstaller, which also deletes the files app creates in appdata, registry, etc. and reinstalling. None worked, sadly.

I have a single Factorio installed in my computer. I tried to delete the TFAR mod's migration folder's XML file, as recommended above. Completely deleting file caused "this mod is not loaded" and sending me to mod sync screen. I also tried to delete the codelines inside that file, only leaving the lines that are doing the migration. They all caused me to get the sync screen while connecting to screen. I only tried to modify TFAR mod's XML file.
