Default [REPORTED]S_EVENT_ENGINE_SHUTDOWN not triggered for clients

Hi,

I noticed that S_EVENT_ENGINE_SHUTDOWN event is not triggered anymore for client. I attach a log, a test mission with a small lua code that show message for takeoff, land & shutoff events.

If you fly that mission in SP or MP as host, it works. As client, it does not.

I also attach dcs.log and the track file.

I guess ED or the testers once again won't understand for years where the problem is ...

I'm optimist, I might believe in a couple of build rotation to have a fix. They have a much more important issue to look into, reading the forum (lights, crashes). But even if it's going to be complicated, I can rewrite my things to adapt to this: it's the modder works.
I just wanted to let them know so that they can try to reproduce & fix if it's simple, cause it doesn't seem a change in code behaviour but a real bug.

I think that this should be done by everyone that is using openbeta and also has sufficient skills to help.

@chromium
Reported, thanks

@ZlinMan we are dealing with hundreds of reports on the forum, sometimes it takes a while to get around everyone, confirm it and report it. Occasionally we will miss reports, it is not intentional.

Thanks

@ED Community Manager Thank you for the tireless work of browsing these forums and other resources. Unfortunately, one can assume that misunderstandings of various kinds arise even if knowledge of problems and their extensive description is given. Unfortunately, for too many different reasons, these will persist too often a long time.

A prime example would be following bug:

The event that a player entered a unit (S_EVENT_PLAYER_ENTER_UNIT) is not fired correctly und MULTIPLAYER.

see: https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=186666
see also: https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=206069
and: https://github.com/FlightControl-Mas...OSE/issues/692

Whoever reads through these excellent discussions can see that two parties are talking at cross purposes for a long time. Perhaps ignorance is also involved here?

Unfortunately, there are some bugs that have been known for a VERY LONG time in DCS-World and are serious and cause major headaches for the scripting community. To put it cautiously and politely.
Changes, corrections or improvements, also with regard to a comprehensible continuity or even cooperative documentation, are hardly or not recognizable. On the contrary - at regular intervals, ED publishes new, effective for the general public, alqays unfinished but nice-looking extensions - so called EYE-CANDY.

There are some very talented DCS scripting freaks with skills and background knowledge who work tirelessly to improve this game with sacrifice - but unfortunately they feel long-term that they get little or no attention. It’s very frustrating. Others, after a great deal of personal energy, have probably given up trying to make further improvements. It's a pity ...
It is more than logical that this also has an influence on the buyers, isn't it?

Informations about possible DCS bugs, issues and informative discussions about it can still be found here:

https://github.com/FlightControl-Mas...A%22DCS+bug%22

Thanks for reading.
