Player Disappears.

by DoyleChris » Thu Dec 27, 2018 16:33

I am tyring to run a server so my son and me can play. What im trying to do is run a server off my computer so my son can connect to it from his android tablet. But when he connects he can see me for a bit then i disappears, but can see holes i dig. But cant see me or tools i give him.

That is pretty odd... Unfortunetly I don't know too much about RUNNING a server... All I know is that this is unusual, and maybe has something to do with the connection glitching out?

Are you sure that both clients use the same Minetest version?

If both are 0.4.17.1 ... 0.4.16: OK, not a version issue
If both are 5.0.0-dev: Find the newest binary for both platforms to ensure compatibility.
If one is 0.4.17.1 and the other 5.0.0-dev, then check again because it's not possible to play together with these versions.

We are using 5.0 i think. Do we need the same build number for android and the windows version or just 5.0.

Both should be built around a very close timespan. There were some breakages (also lately), causing clients and servers to not interact well when the versions differ too much.

Recent breakages:
Dec 13th
Dec 4th
Nov 28th
