Servers down again?

Has there been any kind of official comment from Asobo/Microsoft ? Have they even acknowledged there is an issue and they’re looking into it ?

Not sure if this is directly related but ever since I did the most recent updates with the few enhanced airport updates in content manager now I am getting these CTD’s for the first time ever! From what I’ve noticed so far in the past couple hours is that as long as I select an enhanced airport either by MS or third party I get a CTD while the flight is loading up. But…….if I choose a non-enhanced airport and turn off third party content all seems to work just fine. Will do more tests over the weekend but I’m tired of the restarts just to get back to the World Map.

HI Hester
Can you just cut and paste all these into that one?
Or do we all need to repeat what we said here?
THat one just looks like it is for “losing my logbook”

The ones related to the packages out of date? Yes, I can move into that link I posted above.
That topic is also for anything lost. So profile hours, logbooks, etc. It starts with getting that “packing out of date”.

No sorry, I meant the ones relating to “I lost my logbook hours” and “blank logbook”, this thread is more about we cannot fly, because it’s stuck in a loop for this update that goes in (3 files) then keeps looping again to do it again
Although, the last time it did it to me, about 30 mins ago, it DID “wipe” my log book as well !!

A post was merged into an existing topic: Playtime gone missing [Packages out of date]

The entire time rate in the simulator is running extremely fast after the update. I took off at 3:30ish PM eastern time and after 1.5 hours of flight it was night time and the time was showing 10:22PM CDT. Not really sure what they did here. Is there an options to accelerate time? The aircraft itself was at the correct location for 1.5 hours of flight time, but 7 hours of “time” had gone by in those 1.5 hours.

LOL I just experienced this as well, I just felt like the sim was running to fast, press the decelerate time button twice, the press accelerate time twice yup still feels way to fast back it down one and it was closer to normal…

There seems to be something else going on here at the Azures Server page, scroll down a bit till you hit the comments section Microsoft Azure Down? Current status overview | Downdetector

Oh and for lost log books, I lost 600+ before Jan, just looked in the sim and lost another 350 hours at least there as well ROFL what a way to run a Banana Republic…

Same here (Italy)… Got the update packages message 2-3 times… Some settings have been reset… I have ZERO hours in my profile, but the next target is still the one I had yesterday!! I also had some general - I hope unrelated - internet connection problems.

Thanks for that tip… interesting option. I can see that picture on the game server in a browser, so… to check the game server before starting… good preventive measure and MS&Asobo could use it to pass euuhm certain messages to us ? maybe? It’s not so difficult to change a picture saying

“Server is back. If you start the game now your settings and logbook and version will be restored”

(please :worried: )

That’s just 2 people saying they have problems with Azure, then another 1, then 2 more … Down Detector is still saying that there are no issues.
Similarly, there are none reported on the Azure faults pages.
The real problem is either Xbox Gaming or software related I suspect. Those updates are from the Profile->Content Manager.
Updates in there are optional, so the fact that they are forcing us to quit and update suggests a break in software somewhere. It really shouldn’t care if we update them or not. It’s as if someone accidentally set a flag to force update, or to not allow connection without the updates.
The other problem I had was that my Xbox Gaming did not show any of my friends, and I couldn’t set myself to show as away/offline etc., nor could I check my profile.

Yeah nothing on Xbox gaming status page as to anything being down either. There were more then a couple of people reporting issues with Azure though if you scroll around the site.

Certain services are done with Azure ? Account and profile things ? Suppose Azure server returns version #0 to the client and 0 Logbook entries etcetera… client (we) store that information. Now client (we) try to do something in game (anything, flying, settings) then the game server gets “version #0” and starts complaining about packages out of date ?

Now suppose… the situation will be restored when you start the game at some point. The server is restored AND supplies you with your old account data again. That happened to some people having trouble. They reported that here. Why should the server not be able to restore it for everyone ? Only thing is… when are we getting THE news about this issue…

People were reporting the same problem in popular twitch chats tonight.

I had a reply from Zendesk:

“The pop-up “Warning: Your packages are out of date.” appears in order to prepare MSFS for the release of the upcoming World Update IV. This message may appear when you switch from offline to online mode.”

(no admission that it was the program that forced me to go offline and relogin !!)

Followed by:
" To get rid of this pop-up, click Yes. The sim will restart by itself.
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused."

(No understanding that it is looping, nor that it wiped the logs)

I mean, I did tell them that even after the update was completed and the htree files were done, it is still doing it … ah well, going to risk it and see if it works OK, if not will re raise on Zendesk …

Had this now for 2 days, this is Microsoft/Asobo showing how incompitent they are. Amen

Wow, just when I started to get really smooth frame rates three days ago without doing anything to my system, they figured out how to ruin things again. Oh well…

@ Earlboone79 Check your settings :frowning: the issue puts everything back to default

Yes Since Yesterday same issues here. No Markerplace, Live traffic and whether and no Server.
I found in: ‘Options/General/Data’’ the Online Functionality was switch to OFF.

Just switched it back to ON and after a few seconds the servers were back and a few seconds later also Marketplace ect.
Hope it will work for You all as well.
