OS Name/Version:
Windows Server 2019

Product Name/Version:
AMP Release "Lapetus" v1.9.9.10

Problem Description:
When joining in VR the console constantly cycles the error:

Exception: NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object
VRCoopPlayerSync.UpdateSpineRotation ()
VRCoopPlayerSync.LateUpdate ()

The game is un-playable cycling through day cycles, actions do not register, and basic movement does not work.

Issue aligns with the symptoms mentioned in this thread (external link).

Steps to reproduce:
Joining in VR. Joining without VR it appears to run correctly (although the console cycles through completely different errors, it is playable from the players' perspective).

Actions taken to resolve so far:

  1. Tried playing with and without oxide.
  2. Verified the game was up-to-date,
  3. Restarted AMP and server
  4. Verified "Server Steam Account" was input correctly, as this was the resolution to a separate issue on these forums.
  5. Searched the intertubes for resolutions.

Extra info:
Server setup is "bog-standard". Meaning, I created a "The Forest" AMP Instance, Setup the server config, opened the ports, then started the game.

This is an issue with the server for The Forest itself and doesn't have anything to do with AMP. This issue can only be addressed by the game developers.
