When setting up a dedicated server, MSO does not initialize correctly. This causes extreme lag in game. Its not framerate lag or server lag, its lag with the interfaces. EX: pull up scope, crosshairs don't appear for about 5 seconds.
This is caused by the MSO modules not initializing in the map screen during creation.
Normally (when starting as a LAN or internet game) the MSO initialized with the CBA under the notes/tasks/ect section.
Any help with this would be appreciated.
Note: CBA initializes but also has no text in that section.
Can you go over the process? You are at the briefing screen, under MSO > Initialization - does it show anything there? You should see a list of stuff going through the init process.. the last one is Patrol Ops and depending on the map it alone can take 4-5 minutes to complete. At the end it should say Initialization Completed. DO NOT PRESS CONTINUE UNTIL YOU SEE THIS COMPLETED MESSAGE. Also make sure you are the ONLY one on the server while you are doing this.
You can also try disabling most things in the params to see if it launches then.. at least you'd know it is a problem with a specific module. Have you customized the mission in any way?
