    User Can't Open Module

    Good day! I, as the GM, have shared a module that I've made to the players (It has a green octagon sign). I can open and close it no problems as a GM. When I connect as a player, however, I cannot open that module. It'll say that it is loaded, but no module shows up in the library. In addition, I noted that the lower left hand corner of the module in my Data Modules area has a spider web. I also notice the book stays closed, although it says "Loaded"

    Has this behavior been seen before? How can I fix this?

    Thanks in advance,

    The module data hasn't fully loaded until the book icon opens. Clicking the "Load" button just starts the download process - even though the button text changes to "Unload".

    Basically it's a case of waiting for the module to completely download. Further discussions in this post and the rest of the thread: https://www.fantasygrounds.com/forum...l=1#post456865

    Yeah..this plagued us a BUNCH last night. The module in question is like...1.5 MB. Should it really take that long to download?

    As I mentioned in my post - it's download *and* process. How much XML is in that module?

    Roughly 1.4 MB of XML. 22k lines. Dropping the server and bringing it back up fixed the issue...much like I had to do last night. Just trying to find if there is something I can do to make sure that it doesn't happen, as it is quite frustrating to me the GM and to the players. I don't seem to have this issue with the purchased modules...do they do something different?
