  1. @BarryBL, any news on why this issue occurs with certain accounts and any progress on a fix? I was hoping patch 1.17 would bring a solution, but unfortunately I still can't join multiplayer sessions anymore with my main Steam account.
  2. Unfortunately, the workaround does not seem to fix being able to join weekly events: failed to join error nm14... again... I really hope EA will fix all these ongoing connection issues when.if F1 2021 will be developed; I can join ranked and unranked races now using the second steam account though.
  3. Same issue for me as well it seems, I just posted about this yesterday: https://forums.codemasters.com/topic/75653-cant-join-any-online-sessions-suddenly/ after discovering something similar was posted here already. Strange issue...If it is of any help, not sure if it matters or may be related, but I did move to another country not to long ago and my region settings within Steam have changed. I've tried to use another steam account and used family sharing (quite a hassle, being forced to use steam guard and all). I am than able to join multiplayer sessions again, but how can I use my own profile settings? I use custom wheel settings, buttonbox etc. etc.) I don't care about career/online progress/achievements/setups at all, but I do mind needing to customize everything again. Is there a way to copy these to the other Steam account (without all the steam ' workshop publishing annoyance')? (I'd rather see the issue fixed and use my regular Steam account of course...) update: Unfortunately, the workaround does not seem to fix being able to join weekly events: 'failed to join error nm14'... again...

  4. I just noticed another similar post from a few weeks ago: https://forums.codemasters.com/topic/75395-pc-cant-join-any-multiplayer-sessions-anymore/ It seems I am not the only one having this issue. I've tried to use another steam account and used family sharing (quite a hassle, being forced to use steam guard and all).

  5. Bug report regarding many issues with online multiplayer sessions: 1. A description of the issue. Please include any error codes here. a. Did a weekly event earlier today, loaded and worked fine. Decided to retry event, but after hours waiting for a new weekly event, I could not join, I got some error (NM14 or something like that). b. Tried to join a unranked race after that. I can't join any sessions (I do see them) anymore all over sudden (it did work earlier today, did not change anything). I don't get an error code, but after waiting for a long time with the screen showing "joing session, please wait" this finally results into a screen showing "Error Failed to join the session". Also, It seems I can host a session, but no one joins the lobby if I do so, even after waiting more then 5 minutes. c. Tried to join a ranked race after that. A session loads, but same as if I host a unranked race: stuck in lobby waiting for other players to join, but no one ever does. 2. What version of the game you are using (Shown on the start screen in the bottom left corner of the screen) 1.16, Windows 10, Steam 3. Game-mode? Multiplayer 4. Are you able to recreate the issue? If so, please include recreation steps on how you encountered this issue. Yes, I can recreate the issue timelessly ever since it first occured. 5. How often do you see this problem? Is it the only time or does it always happen? Always, since this afternoon, after a second run for the weekly event failed to join the session. 6. Have you tried any troubleshooting? We recommend the steps here as a starting point for any issues. Please let us know what troubleshooting methods you have tried while creating this post. Yes, I've tried: - Checking the forum for any similar recent reports (couldn't find any recent reports wtih similar issues) - Restarting PC completely - Restarting Router completely and restarting PC again - Turned off firewall - Port forwarded TCP and UDP 3074 (which should not be necessary, as it did work earlier, I did not change anything on my home network or PC config in between) - Checked other internet connectivity and multiplayer games: no issues at all - I am using a wired connection with 1Gbps/40Mbps connection and there is plenty of bandwidth and no known outages at my ISP today - Additional info: I haven't played F12020 in a while, during the session this afternoon, a question arose for me to agree to some terms from 'Racenet' , to which I agreed. Not sure if the issues may be related to this. 7. Any accessories you are using (gamepad, wheel etc) Yes, wheel, pedals, the usual... 8. Any screenshots or video of the issue? If the video is long, please include a timestamp for when the issue appears. No, but I did get a report code: ECTG-PGJG-SJXK-XXMG I was really looking forward doing some online racing again and hoping all theses connectivity issues, which seems to be a reoccuring proplem, were fixed by now. (only have had issues with weekly events regularly before though, which I guessed has to do with capacity issues on the server side maybe...now also with ranked and unranked sessions). Any ideas/suggestions/tips? Thanks in advance, Ralph
  6. Still not fixed, same KMR 4 error again trying the weekly event just 15 minutes ago. Now waiting a full hour again and than it will probably work fine. This is getting hopeless. I'm not doing any useless ' full bug reports' anymore, The issue has been reported countless times by multiple people, if they did not take it serious by now, the will never start taking it serious. Probably ( I am speculating of course) because it is some capacity issue and the only way to fix it is by making some more investments on the server and network side, otherwise it would have been fixed several years ago. The issue reoccurs every version of the game and it it is not reproducable, which is why it is such a bother filling in these reports every time, they are not doing anything with this particular issue anyway. Sometimes it works fine, sometimes it does not. Frankly it mostly just occurs in race weekends when a real F1 race is taking place. I hope they have more budget now that Codemasters is being taking over for a big amount of money by Take-Two to finally fix these kind of issues. Otherwise I might just stick to Iracing and skip any upcoming Codemasters games all together.

    Weekly Event error KMR4

    Still not fixed, same KMR 4 error again trying the weekly event. This is getting hopeless. I'm thinking of quiting on codemasters/F1 2020 alltogether and just stick to Iracing.
  8. and like many times before: 1 hour later I managed to join the session, but when I wanted to retry again hour further: error NM14..., one hour further, it worked again. What is causing this every time? When is Codemasters finally going to fix this?
  9. I just waited around 30 minutes for matchmaking to start for the weekly event, to end up with a KMR4 error. I did get several NM14 error in the past months as well, the KMR4 is a new one for me. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't. It really sucks you have to wait another hour and just hope it works that time, which sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't. If these issues can't be fixed, than at least bring the waiting time down to 15 minutes. There must be plenty of candidates for a weekly event to gather in 15 minutes right? I don't have these issues with ranked or unranked multiplayer games (except sometimes it seems to hang on a ' waiting for players' screen and also microstutters appear in game sometimes when people join the session while it is in progress. I am so disapointed that this still isn't fixed (same issues appeared with f1 2019). Maybe I am wrong, but it seems to be a server capacity issue to me maybe? I don't have any issues with other multiplayer games at all, I have a very recent and fast PC and keep the game updated with latest available patches. I'm not going to report this in the complete bug report, because these issues should be well known by now, It has occured during all versions of the game, on different networks and I hear friends of mine complaining about the exact same issues. I just hope Codemasters finally does something to permanently tackle these issues so I can finally call this one of the best and most fun racing games ever created. These multiplayer issues really pull the game quality/experience down.

    same here, I'm not posting a complete report. I'm using PC, latest version, same issue. Must be enough info.

  12. 1. At the point matchmaking started when entering the multiplayer weekly race event, I got an error. I did not take exact note of the code, but I think it was NM14 (it was something with the number 14 for sure). The exact time was 12:00 CEST on September 5th. I did have this happen a few weeks ago as well, sometimes it does work a second time (have to wait another hour though because of the event only taking place once an hour...). I just checked and I at the moment I get no errors when I try to enter ranked or unranked multiplayer matches. 2. Steam 1.08 3. ranked an unranked lobbies I can enter 4. It happened when matchmaking fase started for weekly race event 5. I will check again in an hour. I did get this issue before a few time, a few weeks ago. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. 6. Did not try anything to try and solve this yey, because there is no clear indication towards home network or installation being the cause (ranked/unranked does work after all) Report code: RDJA-JBEE-GHKA-VDJE UPDATE: 1 hour further, matchmaking did not result in an error this time. I did not change anything, did not reset router or whatever, I did not even restart the game. I wonder what is causing these errors to occur only occasionally. Server capacity issues maybe?
  13. This issue has been fixed with one of the latest patches. Game is running great now. Only issues I still keep getting now and than are all multiplayer related. Same issues as in the previous versions ('waiting for players' sometimes hangs for an excessive amount of time, occasional errors after matchmaking starting weekly event resulting in having to wait another hour hoping it will work the next time. All in all, the game is getting better and better still, I must say.
