Summary0001890: Fighter beams and lag = no respawn for client
DescriptionBest observed with the Vorlon Fighter in TBP. The best I can tell 3 things have to happen for you to get the problem. First you have to die by a beam. Second you must be firing a beam when you die, and third there needs to be lag. When this happens you never get the respawn prompt.

There was a similar random problem in retail when you died by any beam but I haven't seen that in FS2 Open.
Additional Information3.6.10 r5078 and your Inferno-multi build both have the problem. I don't seem to get it in 3.6.9. Easiest way to get it to happen is run 2 copies of TBP (host regular build, client debug) on the same computer. That gives enough lag for the bug to show up and if using a joystick you will be firing when you kill yourself. I can not get it to reproduce across a LAN.

I've also tried replacing the guns on the ships with 42mm which works and the Neutron gun which also exhibits the problem.

Is this still a problem?

Unless someone finally got around to rewriting the respawn code then probably yes.

It would be better if we had actual confirmation from a multiplayer game. The code has changed a lot since 2009; the problem may not in fact be in the spawn code.

Well I know I have made alterations to the respawn code since 2009 so it may already be fixed.
