Was in a fight last night, was around 6 v 5

Just as I uncloaked, launched ewar drones to jam a particular ship, three drones launched, then no others, I was eventually getting a message on screen trying to launch the last two but it didn't make much sense, I know I can launch 5, done it hundreds of times with same drones.

Something about a box or container I think the message said. Probably something daft like the container is already empty.

There really shouldnt have been serious lag it was a pretty small gang fight in main empire in domain with around 20 in local.

We lost a 30 million isk cruiser to the ship I'd sent my drones to jam, I now can't help thinking if I'd gotten all 5 on him it might have worked better. Mad

The damn things wouldn't dock either after the fight so I scooped them all to cargo.

Without knowing exactly what the error was, there's not much for us to go on to help you.

How's this? Edited names out since I know you're not supposed to post killmails and this might fall into same area. Seems it thinks they had launched when they'd hadn't. They weren't in space anyway, although IIRC by the end of the fight they did eventually launch.

I ask, if the drone bay was empty, how does it know what was in there that it can't launch cause it's not there? Laughing

The multiple messages was me frustratingly trying to make it work.

I also get the error at random times. I think I first noticed it with the QR Update.

Basically your Dronebay indeed launches all 5 Drones, but sometimes one of them still shows up as being in your Dronebay.

I noticed the Dronebay showed 4 Drones in Space and 1 in Bay. The one in Bay could not be launched, regardless how often I clicked. Then I checked the Overview and I counted all 5 Drones as being in space and they also followed orders.

So in short, the client shows one of the drones as stuck in Dronebay and cannot launch it, but that is, because the Drone is already in space. It is more a bad case of desync then a real bug.

prolly the same categorie of issues with the "ghost things" happening here and where (movign stuff from/to cans and having a "ghost image/stack" of an old thing that isnt there. appears to be "duped")

Thanks mate, like you say, probably some weird minor desync, everything else worked fine and smoothly though, was a great fight apart from that.
