no other riders


(Stefan Thanner) #1

I have played the game now the 4th time and i was always alone.
why are there no bots or other players?
thank you for your advices


(Eric Vlaanderen) #2

I would like it to have an option to make the other riders disappear. Especially the AI.


(Eric Min) #3

Sounds like you may have a very weak Internet connection.

Stefan, I had a similar problem. When I rode zwift at work I was all alone on the island, when I was at home I could see everyone. It could be a problem with your firewall. I learned that you need to be able to both send an receive UDP packets thought the game. Also the game is currently using port 3022 so you may open that up as well, though I am told that may change in the future. Hope this helps! Swift on my friend!

All Alone!

check your ping time and Internet speed using www.speedtest.net and use a server on the West Coast, not the server it picks for your that is fastest/closest geographically.

if your ping times are 100ms, that’s considered high for Zwift.

how are your download speeds to this server compared to what your service calls for?

Keith, you didn’t use the map and pick a server on the West Coast. You allowed it to use the fastest server for you. It’s listed on the lower-right corner as Hartford, CT.

In my example above, I selected San Luis Obispo, CA for the server.

I’m on the East Coast, near Philadelphia. This was over an 802.11n WiFi connection. I have Verizon Fios 50/25 service.

West coast version


(Michael Henasey) #11

That’s higher for latency but probably not the problem. Have you taken a look at the log file for your ride? Any NetClient:Error messages?


(Keith Sherling) #12

How do I do that? Thanks Michael

9:25:25] NETCLIENT:JSON parsing error: Error: * Line 1, Column 1
Syntax error: value, object or array expected.

Search for “NETCLIENT:ERROR”

Check your other logs files as well.

Up to 10 are archived in the same folder. The last ride is always “log.txt”.

When I had the same issue, I had many NETCLIENT:ERROR messages indicating a problem with connecting with the Zwift servers.

If you are not finding this I’m not sure what the problem could be. Only Zwift would be able to help with that.

 


(Scott Revlin (BSQUAD)) #18

Can someone please help resolve this?  Things were working fine for me until around Christmas.  Ever since, I’ve been riding alone.  NOTHING has changed with regards to my network, and I have a lightning-fast connection.  Help!

(Paul Mack Ottawa Rollers) #20

Similar problem.  I’m usually alone - or I can see 2 to 4 others riders on course.

  1. I’ve opened port 3022
  2. enabled UDB
  3. shut down my firewall(s)
  4. upgraded  my video card drivers (it’s a gaming  computer)
  5. and have a fast connections.

I’ve just resorted to doing a workout…

Please let me know if  anyone finds a solution.

Thanks,

P
