If the temp screen on my plugin does not appear then there is an error or it is timing out before ACF begins updating values.
You can try reducing the timeout time, For example if you set it to -1 the temp screen should appear when ACF saves the first field. However, if there is an error then the temp screen will never go away.
I still haven’t got a clue what your issue is
