    Welcome to the FG forums.

    Is the GM's Internet connect on AT&T?

    Hi, I'm the GM of the game and based in UK, The player is based in Sweden, the images are all under 500K, he also reports that the game wants to upload files when he connects on weds, and again if he has to reconnect.

    When this type of issue has been reported recently it is caused by something blocking the upload of data from the GM to the player - usually some form of flood protection on the GM's Internet router that is limiting the amount of data that can be uploaded to a specific destination.

    Hmm, well I do run games for 8 players two or three times a week, it does seem odd that its only weds and only one of the Swedish players has a problem, Theres no issue with the US players in the session, admittedly he probably has the worst connection, but the best available in his region. My connection is quite fast and advertised as unlimited. if it is a bottleneck of some sort my end, any thoughts on how to check/look for it.

    Have a look in your router settings - usually under something like advanced -> firewall, and see if you can find TCP flood protection - if so turn it off or disable it.

    Could it be a player using 32 bit Windows?

    All 3 Flood attack filtering were switched off, so thats not the issue. I'll check on the windows version hes running.

    Thanks

    I'm not exactly sure, I'm assuming as its when he reconnects to the game, its campaign info rather than FG updates.
