  1. Seeing your entire log would help but that error generally means that some of the data being sent/received is being blocked. Depending on if the error is in a client log or a server log will determine which advice is given to you. It's best if you start a thread for your own problem versus tagging on to someone else's thread. Use the pinned topic at the top of the forum for instructions on how to post your logs. Post a copy of a client log and a server log if possible and they should contain the error that you're seeing. The solution to your problem needs more info than just that single line of the error to diagnose your problem.
  2. You could try deleting the region file and have the game reload a fresh copy. Understand any player-made stuff in that region will be lost. There might be a different way to fix it but I’ll let someone else with experience it chime in.
  3. It’s a known issue. A partial fix is in the experimental A20.1 release but it still happens, just less than in A20. A fix is coming, just not sure when.
  4. Same error another person just posted about. I’ve only seen it since A20.1, ray casting having difficulty with player position. I’d love some info from somebody official as this is a new error. For what it’s worth, I think You should post this to the official bug report section so that we may get some feedback from the QA team on this error. Instructions are found by clicking on the red banner at the top of the forum.
  5. Something is still blocking your internet connection to not only Gamesense but EOS as well. If you were successfully able to exclude 7 Days from your antivirus, do you have any background software running that monitors or adjusts network traffic like for example Asus Game First? Does 7 Days appear to have permissions through your firewall? There is something blocking those connections on your computer.
  6. Good to know….. I wonder if it’s a temporary EAC issue that will be fixed with their next update? Hopefully you can at least continue playing without EAC until things are worked out.
  7. Interesting log. The entire log is filled with warnings of the player position being in the wrong place and the game is constantly adjusting the origin until finally the game crashes. I haven’t seen this type of error before at least this many mentions. I wonder if this has to do with Fatal’s changes with ray casting to attempt fixing of items and zombies falling through the world as this is A20.1??? A big guess on my part. Not sure what to recommend. Was this a rwg seed started in A20 then continued in A20.1 or is this a fresh rwg with 20.1?
  8. I don’t know the lingo or what it exactly means but has something to do with ray tracing and colliders and some other stuff. Fatal is the programmer assigned to fix this. You can click on his profile and read his recent posts explaining the error and what he has been doing to try and fix it. If you understand any programming talk I’m sure you’ll understand what he’s saying but it’s all gobblygook to me. Or go to News and Announcements->Developer A20 thread to read the discussions. He posts quite a bit about his work on the game. It’s fascinating, the parts that I understand anyway.
  9. Interesting….in another post a player was seeing stuff fall through player blocks but not the ground and that stuff was falling less frequently with 20.1 than 20. Sounds like things are better for some but not all people. I’m comfortable saying the correct tweak will come at some point. I’ll just keep picking up my vehicles when not driving and watch out for zombies fighting while standing inside a block.
  10. Yes, that’s due to too-busy eac servers. If you are playing single player or only on servers with friends, you can turn off EAC on your rig and the server to deal with that. I don't think’ that is causing your issue but at least that’s an easy fix. Hopefully someone else here has some other thoughts on your freezes.
  11. My understanding is the fix applied in A20.1 improves the issue but it is still occurring, just not as frequently. Fatal said he will continue work on it.
  12. There is a discord channel for 7 Days, there might be someone there to talk to you but they really would need to see your log. Pastebin is really easy. Go to pastebin.com and paste the log content in the box and it creates a link, you post the link here, easy peasy. If you need help finding your log, its location depends on your operating system. Directions for finding the log are in the pinned topic in this forum, which also has instructions for using pastebin. Here is a link for that: https://community.7daystodie.com/topic/3956-how-to-report-an-issue-please-read-before-creating-new-threads/ Edit: Did you try excluding you 7 Days folder from your antivirus??
  13. Is anything being reported in Windows Event Viewer about the freezes? Is this been a recent thing or have you been able to play A20 fine up until recently? The reason that I ask is the logs end abruptly with no errors. That usually points to an issue outside the game that fails while the game is running. The game is a massive cpu and ram hog, so it can bring out problems in hardware. You’ve updated graphics drivers, checked system files and hard drive health which is great but I’d also test your ram using Memtest, my fav, or Windows built-in mamory diagnostic program. Check for any chipset updates as well. Be sure that your 7 Days folder is excluded from your antivirus/antimalware software too. This problem, unfortunately, could be many things.
  14. My understanding is that quest progression is trader specific which means he needs to finish all the tier 2 quests at the same trader before getting tier 3. I think it’s maybe 7 of them?? Anyhow, if he wants tier 3, tell him to stick to one trader. As soon as he goes to a different trader, it starts over at tier 1. I don’t think that there’s an edit for allowing certain tiers but you could read through the quest.xml file and see if there’s a way to edit the number of quests that you need to do before getting the offer of the next tier. I’m on my tablet not my pc or I’d check it myself.
  15. Exclude your 7 Days folder from your antivirus/antimalware software. If that doesn't fix it, post your entire log here using a pastebin link so we can look for other hints however, usually it's the antivirus.
  16. We really need to see the entire log so if you can use pastebin to link the whole log that’d be great. With only one line of the log to look at, my first guess is that you need to exclude your 7 Days folder from your antivirus/antimalware software but really need to see the entire log to be sure as there could be other hints, not necessarily errors in other parts of the log file.
  17. I believe the latest stable release is always achieved by opting out of the betas. At least that’s what I’ve always thought anyway.
  18. Looks like you removed the following line from the config but don't know if that's the cause or not: <property name="ServerDisabledNetworkProtocols" value="SteamNetworking"/> <!-- Networking protocols that should not be used. Separated by comma. Possible values: LiteNetLib, SteamNetworking. Dedicated servers should disable SteamNetworking if there is no NAT router in between your users and the server or when port-forwarding is set up correctly -->
  19. Line 1490 almost halfway through the first log. Right after that reload is when players started dropping out with from EAC. EDIT: the second log is showing warnings that in other cases have turned out to be some A19 files mixed in with A20 files but I could be wrong but here's the warnings pulled from the second log: 2022-01-16T23:31:22 7998.075 WRN No chunk for position 606, 62, 175, can not add childs to pos 606, 62, 176!

  20. Whenever I reinstall the server (which is a rented dedicated server), I backup a copy of the serveradmin.xml and serverconfig.xml as well as any xml that I’ve modified. Then I wipe all files including any saves, perform an install then delete the newly generated versions of the xml’s I’ve backed up and then upload the backed up xmls. If I’m doing this because of a new version update, I go over the new and backed up xmls looking for any changes. In your case, I’d do exactly the same thing, compare the backup to the new generated xml to be sure there are no syntax errors. If you are using a separate computer in your house to run the dedicated, I’d recommend uninstalling and cleaning your folders as explained in by clicking on the blue banner at the top of the forum. I honestly don’t know if this will help in your case because I’m really not sure why this is happening in the first place. This could be a Windows issue, software issue, internet issue etc. instead of a 7 Days issue but I don’t know what else to advise. If you do this clean reinstall and you still see the disconnects, at least you’ll have ruled out 7 Days as the cause and will then move on to other possibilities. Let us know if it works or not.
  21. Yes you are correct as to how it works. There is a pinned topic above dedicated to people listing good seeds, I’d start there.
  22. Use a web-based port scanner to make sure all of the needed ports are open/forwarded. A list of the ports needed are listed above. Make sure your game folder is excluded from your antivirus/antimalware software. Be sure you don’t have any background software that monitors/adjusts network traffic like Asus Game First. If you still are having an issue after doing all of these things, start a new thread and post your server and client logs using pastebin.
  23. When a server is started, one of the early steps is to load the serveradmin.xml so that the server can set parameters in that xml. So why is the server randomly reloading the xml? It’s almost as if the server loses connection. It isn’t rebooting because the only thing that actually happens is reloading that xml, no other boot up procedures. Hopefully, someone else has some ideas. I’d hate to see you have to uninstall/reinstall the server but that’s the only thing I can think to try and fix this. As SylenThunder mentioned, there are no errors in the logs. I really don’t think EAC or EOS are causing this as neither would have the ability to reload an xml. If there were incorrect settings in that xml then it should show an error.
  24. I see where in the log it’s happening but there is no error listed. The server just reloads serveradmin.xml then everyone gets booted by EAC for having invalid login info. The players are prohibited from reconnecting for 2 minutes by rule. Very odd. I’m assuming you have a stable internet connection with the speed and bandwidth to run the server?
  25. In my opinion, your save is corrupted. In this pinned topic above, there is a section for attempting to repair a corrupted save. I'd attempt this and see if it works for your situation. SUPPORT FAQ: Information and Common Solutions - General Support - 7 Days to Die
