Well i was trying to meet up with some clan friends when i saw them on the map, i warped to them but they werent anywhere in site. We tried meeting in the crater, the lighthouse but got nothing. When we did get it to work we cruised to the lighthouse and parked in the lot. I then pressed "M" and then went back into the game. WHALA! he is gone! He said that he was doing doughnuts in the lot where my car was exactly parked! He even showed up on the map but i couldn't see him.
Does the server swich people between diffrent servers?
Please tell me why this happens.

Re: People dissapearing online
First thing to note is if you jump out of the session by entering a race, shop, instant challenge or jumping to the map you will lose your friend as you have exited that session. The best way to do this is tell your mate to stay still and park up, now select the map, select the players filter or friends list one or the 2 as I'm not sure how it works on PC and highlight him with your mouse so it shows his name and car. Now if it doesn't have 'N/A' you can join him, if it does just wait till it disappears.
Now with him selected click on him and the game will try and load you into his session, it's usually successful but if not it takes about 2 or 3 attempts. Once you are together choose the left menu and select his name and choose 'Lock'. This means no matter how far away you go on the map you will not lose each other, THIS DOES NOT INCLUDE LEAVING THE SESSION as mentioned above.
So if you and your mates wish to drive from point A to a designated point B mark it on the map with your GPS first then jump to him.
Hope that helps and enjoy.I'm a bit mental.
That's what happens to me all the time on PS2, I only gots to cruise around with this guy STEEVEA in a Shelby GT500 while I was in a Mustang, then he challenged me & afterwards he was gone! Maybe it's just the broadband connection or something.
Anywhay, I'm now actually gonna download the TDU demo before the full 1 which probably requires all sorts of video things my computer can't take!
