friends dog disappears in multiplayer

Postby bobbymd » November 27th, 2015, 11:14 am

Hey guys I am new to this game. I have to say so far my friends and I love it. I do have several questions. This time it is about the dog. I usually host a multiplayer server and my friends join it. (up to 3 friends usually) I have been leveling up a dog in the past few days and it has sparked the interest of another. He goes out and buys a dog and brings it into my game while mine is out. He has the dog equipped but he has no command bar (v) and no hotkeys work. (default keys). Also neither of us can see his dog or hear it. We have tried many combinations to try to resolve it such as putting my dog away, letting him host, etc. I have searched the forum but haven't found anything
in similarity. Just fyi, we are playing at different houses. I am in Maryland, 2 in Delaware, and one in South Carolina. SC is the one with the trouble. Thanks in advance for any help.

While there does seem to be an issue with guest's dogs "bugging out" sometimes, I've never seen anyone post that the guest's dog wasn't visible. Are you absolutely sure the guest is putting the dog into inventory (the special dog backpack slot)? Since the "V" commands and hotkeys aren't showing either, it sure seems like the dog is not equipped.

Perhaps have him take the dog out in a single-player game to see if it works there.

Yeah we are sure he equipped it in the correct slot, that's why we were so confused. He said he could see it in his own game but as soon as I came in or he came into my game, it disappeared. He also cannot see me in a multiplayer game until I take my hat off which is weird as well but at least there is a work around for that. Just wondering if there was workaround for the dog as well.

Is this the same as the cant see other players equipment bug? Sounds similar, the only fix I saw for that one was to wait for another player to join the game, then things would appear.

Do you have another buddy that could join your game after the dog has disappeared?

I am not sure. Actually when my one of my other friends comes on, he cant see me or my tent until I take my hat off. When both of these players get into my server, we all have to take our hats off then put them back on for all of us to see each other.

Bug Report
Game Mode: MP

Description:
Dog won't spawn is MP, only in SP. In MP, I have dog equipped, but when I leave inventory, he is not spawned. I can not access dog menu by hitting "V" key. Dog will spawn when I am the host of MP server though.

Steps to Reproduce:
Join a MP hunt as a guest, but keep the game minimalized. After it fails to load, join MP game again, but do not minimalize game windw this time. Game will load but dog won't spawn

IGN: maros295

Additional Information:
I tried many things like uneqipping dog, chanching it's accessories,..., nothing worked.

It also seems that I have problems connecting to MP servers, game is not responding for good amount of time, then it either work or says that it can not connect to the host. Dunno if it is related to the dog bug.

My Computer
Platform: low-end ASUS laptop
OS & Version: Win7 Home. 64bit SP1

EDIT: Updated Steps to reproduce

Same issue here. Exact same steps to reproduce as mentioned before. This issue seems to happen only on my desktop. When I move to my (very lowend) laptop the dog appears and functions normally. The is starting to look like either a network issue or graphics issue. Its like the game doesnt see the dog in the dog inventory slot.

When I host I have no problems with it at all.

After playing for app. 30 minutes, I returned to the lodge and was able to make my dog spawn (by normally equipping it). Bear in mind please that you have to be guest on the MP server, host can equip his dog at the start).

Could not edit my post so I am making another one.

Is this the first time youve tried that or is that a guaranteed workaround that works every time.
