Description

When a player joins while the game is in the briefing screen, he cannot listen/see any communications from other players, unless they use Global Channel.

Something that can be related is that the new guy's name does not show up when he talks/writes, and his name in the Players tab shows like an AI, not the actual player name.

The other players already in briefing can see and hear the new guy sais/writes, without name though.

Repro:
- Start a mission in a dedicated server with a client on (e.g. admin)
- Stay on Briefing screen
- Another player joins

Repro2:
- Start a mission in a DS (e.g. login as admin)
- Admin goes to briefing screen
- Second player JIPs
Verify that the messages can't be seen.
- Second player leaves
- Admin uses #reassign
- Admin goes to briefing of mission again
- Second player joins
Messages of each player can only be seen without player name (author) in front of them.
- Second player leaves
- Admin uses #missions and picks a mission again (can be the same)
- Admin goes to briefing
- Second player JIPs
Issue shows up again.

Problem:
1. The old player sees new player text/voice
2. The new player only sees old player text/voice if he speaks in Global Channel
3. New player does not have a name when he talks and in players tab shows the name of an AI

Might be related to two text chat issues:
  • When in briefing, a new JIP's name isn't displayed in chat to already present players.
  • Ppl playing cannot see chat from JIP ppl still in the mission lobby.

Updated by neokika over 3 years ago

Yes, definitely.

I assume this is replicated in 1.59?

Updated by Suma over 3 years ago

Repro confirmed partially. What I do not see is the AI name in the Players tab. Other than that I see all issues.

Can be reproduced even with a non-dedicated host:

Repro:
- Host a mission
- Stay on Briefing screen
- Another player joins
- Host types a chat
- Another player types a chat
- Host switches to a global channel and types a chat again

Observed:
  1. The new player does not see a chat typed on the default side channel by the host
  2. The host sees new player text/voice (side channel), but the chat messages are marked only with the group designation
