Latency Compensating Client/Server - How that work in DCS?

We know, lag is big problem for us.

 

- Many times i ask myself how that missile hit me that ''fast''?

- Why my RWR screaming although i`m destroy primary threat 5+ sec after?

- How is possible that some semi-active (for ex. R27-ER) missile going on me and hit me although i destroy their launch platform, so, without any guidance few sec and hit me?

 

Definitely in given moments, I as a client, I was in the past. Is it possible to somehow compensate this delay? How do these things work in the DCS?

 

100ms ping is high latency i think. What about 400??? It is difficult to synchronize this. In fact, it is possible?

 

Will be better in DCS 2.0?

Fast missile.

Because the RWR has a 7 second memory.

This has nothing to do with lag and everything to do with how the 'radar memory track' feature works. Alternatively, your jammer was on and the missile homed in on it.

 

 

I doubt it's going to happen. There's way too much going on in the game.

Fast missile.

 

Big NO! They kill me on half circle RWR Beryoza ''countdown'' = Delay on my side i think or server/client related.

 

 

Because the RWR has a 7 second memory.

 

??? I don`t understand that.

I think the game runs surprisingly well considering the ms range of the clients. For instance our server allows people with 300 ms as highest, and the game goes decently. Or atleast that's how we perceive it, after all it's difficult to really see what went wrong due to latency in such a complex environment. But compare this to CS:GO for example. A guy with 80 ms is almost impossible to hit because he's literally teleporting on the map.

Agree and understand. Just as i said, wanna to know: "How do these things work in the DCS?"

Or the missile could be coming from an angle that the RWR isn't covering. There's also a detection delay (IIRC) in RWRs.

 

??? I don`t understand that.

 

The RWR will maintain a contact for 7 sec after it loses the signal.
