Hey All, this problem involves Wembley Sub (V2.1) and WMSCC (1.4)

when I was writing the TT for the upcoming WCML chain, I aimed to chain Wembley Sub as is a fun 1 player challenge, and I've even made a groundhog day TT for it!

I fired the 2 sims up in multiplayer as on both sims it says "WM" Sigs on Sub and "WS" on WMSCC so being they are updated to show each other I guessed they'd chain but upon booting them and chaining them the Down road works without issue but the Upside is missing a TC and trains disappear when attempting to pass between Sims. I understand the Sim is rather old but wondered if there was a plan to add in this missing TC? Otherwise, I'll have to find a new sim to chain!

Thanks In Advance

So is this a rectifiable problem? or one that may take, a fair while? shame if it doesn't work its a nice little sim!

It requires an update to Wembley Sub in order for it to chain to Wembley Main. I can't put a timescale on that unfortunately.

Another note: I see you're using your external IP to chain to another sim on the same computer. You should be able to use 127.0.0.1 as IP to connect to a sim on the same computer to get rid of network lag.

Hairpin routing should mean that the traffic doesn't go beyond the local router. Lag would be negligible at best.

You're right, but I don't trust routers that much, as not all of them implement hairpin routing correctly.

And you don't want a chain on your computer to drop just because the wifi goes down!

For the sake of easy memory, you can also use "localhost" - simsig recognises it as 127.0.0.1, and is way easier to remember

Agreed, this is how I manage chains when hosting.
