Please wait while the game loads



  • What is up with this nowadays. Is this just server specific? I never used to have any problems connecting to a game server (at least back before the UI change).

    Nowadays it is a crapshoot, sometimes you win sometimes you lose.

    I kill off my steam process, restart CMW, sometimes that helps, right now it is not - can’t even connect to my own Simrai server (which pings from the cmd line as 50ms and shows up in the browser as 198).

    Just don’t get it.

    Oh now I am in.

    Honestly if I had to guess I would say that something changed in how the code works for joining servers, perhaps when they fixed the crashes when server full, it is almost as if when 2 people are joining at the same time it locks up.



  • Hmm I realize most people here play the forum not the game but surely someone else has noticed a difference since the last major patch… so much hanging and eventually gets in but frustrating.



  • yawn so tiring



  • Maybe its your Internet.



  • Hey Greg,

    I don’t get stuck there, but I get stuck in between map rotate/when game finish & goes to load into next map… I get stuck on the blue loading screen… sometimes sits there for about 5 minutes, other times just locks up… some times it loads straight away before anyone else an I’m sitting there for like 15-20 seconds before the next guy shows up as joined…

    Go away troll.



  • Take it how you want thing is no one is getting your problem. Not even on the steam forums.



  • This happens sometimes, but just hitting cancel and trying again usually works.



  • I get this all the time. Just don’t play bugger all anymore because I don’t have time to deal with silly bugs. Work 12 to 14 hour days and try to find time for a game with prehistoric bugs like this one which make you want to falcon punch a hole through your monitor. Bug fixes before features. Stop building a house on a broken foundation. That shit causes sink holes and sink holes kill people/cost money.



  • I get this fairly often. Sometimes I can just cancel and try again, sometimes I have to restart Chiv. Sometimes when I cancel the server browser goes blank and I have to restart Chiv. I’ve also noticed the loading screen gets stuck more often now than before.

    I’ve just accepted that it’s going to be this way.

    Why are you not president yet? haha

    I just tried to launch Chivalry and it exited steam instead. What?



  • Are u still facing with this problem ? Cuz I am :(



  • So I am pretty sure what this turned out to be was I setup a firewall, perhaps I added specific servers, perhaps I blocked UDP, don’t recall but disabling the firewall seems to have removed the issue.



  • I find it only happens when I try to join a game that reaches capacity just before I join. For instance, it says 23/24, I try to join, it does this, cancel then refresh server browser and it says 24/24. Either that or it will go to the loading screen then take me back to the menu saying lost connection to host or some shit like that.



  • Someone tell me why the previously custom, now official maps take 3 times longer to load than the old ones. K ty.



  • @gregcau:

    Lucky. I’ve had it forever.



  • This happens to me only when trying to join a server that’s pretty full, most often when a spot just opened up. When the loading gets really long, it eventually fails and I attribute it to someone loading in faster than me and grabbing that open spot.

    Other than that, doesn’t happen, though all map-to-map loading times have increased significantly for me (on Belmez I often load in and have already missed the first spawn wave) and general performance is a lot worse, but that’s been the case for going on a year now.

    Ask Clayton, same rig as me pretty much and suddenly 120 FPS is hard to maintain on a lot of maps because of their “optimization” patch a long time ago.

    I’ve seen this complaint.
