Online Open Lobby Issues
« on: Sep 29, 2012, 11:20 am »

Okay, my son has been trying to get on the open lobbies to do some drag racing for a few weeks now and the game only lags out and gives him a fail message and won't let him in.  I have tried looking for anything online about it but can't find anything.  If any of you have suggestions please let me know.  Thanks!

Can you post more specific details, like exactly what happens at each stage, and any error codes you get?

Is your PS3 hard-wired to your internet connection or is it using wireless?

it could be your Internet supplier lagging out, or your PS3 or finally the server. I`ve not heard of anyone lagging out like this recently but will look into it myself and will pass on anything I find onto here for you :)

Alright, the game has no issues and everything works fine with everything else across the board.  The only thing he can't do is go into the open lobby.  He just tried it again and it connects to the server fine and shows a lobby list of ones he can join.  When he clicks on one to join, it brings up the joining room window and the bar seizes up at about 5%.  Then a window pops up that says "The request has timed out."  The attempt to join only lasts about fifteen seconds at the most.  Anything else you need to know?

Oh, and the internet is hardwired to the PS3.  He has never had problems with it before and other online features seem to be working fine.

Hmmm, bit of googling shows that there's a LOT of people having serious issues with accessing online racing due to this latest update 2.08

Not a lot we can do, as we can't roll back to 2.07   ???

All we can really do is wait for PD to correct the bugs.

It's about on par for PD these days... one step forwards, two steps back.   :-\

Still not working...really annoying.  Anyone done anything that has given them any better luck?
