Multiplayer bug fix focus

I packed up my stuff and have moved on to other things. Maybe revisit in a few months but can’t play on 2.56 and nobody playing on 2.55. Gets boring flying around solo

I hope ED does put more focus in MP bug fixing

I think the best way to start would be to actually host a dedicated server

then get some testers to connect and fly around for a bit

 

Some of the last terrible MP breaking bugs would have been discovered within 10 minutes of hosting an MP server,

would be good if these bugs never made it out to the rest of us

Question: ~ Anyone else ?

(No DCS Page, just white spot were it used to be)

Cosmetic really and doesn't interfere with program.:D

My biggest Problem here is sliding of all flying units diagonally. Everywhere. Starts slowly and becomes worse over the time. Only 1 dedicated server and 1 - 3 clients local connected. DCS World multiplayer NOT usable !

Waiting for the return of: -TLP- -True LAN Play- Multiplayer without permanent internet connection to ED master-server. Plane wishlist: Antonov - AN-2

With DCS 2.5.6.49314 we introduced some new network tweaks that have improved much of the warping issues, of course if someone has a bad connection it is still possible to have issues, but overall the improvement has been a great help.

 

Thanks to everyone for the feedback it helped improve MP we appreciate your reports.

Warping is still happening with infantry

 

Worst thing that has happened with 2.5.6 DCS dedicated server was breaking MP control over CA spawned ships,

which used to work correctly but now does not work at anymore ... really bummed about that one

 

I also used to be able to spawn things like igla soldiers and zu open emplacements onto things like oil rigs to do cool missions with

... now they spawn under water :-(

I confirm. However, as you said it doesn't affect the server at all.

 

 

@ BIGNEWY:

 

Warping is still there and I get that feedback from many players on the Cold War server so it's not just me. Other servers too. The new network might be promising at some point but as of now server's performance wise it is still not stable. So not sure how you can say it has improved a lot ;-)

If someone has a poor connection you will still see issues, packet loss can and will create problems for any MP environment.

The warping has turned into a teleporting issue for AI ground units, usually when there's more players in an AO. What I have observed several times is my ordnance hitting a ground unit that disappears on impact, only to instantly reappear a couple of meters away, usually moving, smoking or burning, and then exploding. I know, tracks/videos/logs and all. I hope ED also values our limited time and capabilities to be on guard and efficiently capture and report thing like these.

We will need to take a closer look at unit issues, if you have a server replay showing the issues please post it on the MP bugs section.

 

It maybe the server is overloaded unit count wise? Dynamically spawned units and scripts add an extra layer of complexity to the issue, and make it difficult for us to debug on dev builds.

is over loaded a pretty big number ? few hundred plus ?

eg server debug showing active count

Would it be of interest for ED to provide the community with a stress test map so we can all evaluate based on the same setup?

 

Mission design can HUGELY affect server stability. It's super easy to crash servers with a few bad design decisions like unit grouping.

So a baseline to compare would seem imperative to me. Otherwise it's all just speculations based on the servers hardware and performance, location and connection as well as the mission since DCS ME doesn't limit anything.

Best regards

+1. this is a great idea, it would be good if ED would provide an MP "benchmark" mission for MP hosters to try out

Cannot replay tracks from MP (Open Beta)

 

When I try to replay a track that has been automatically recorded in OB Multi-Player, I get the attached error message.

There is something weird: The message contains a reference to a file on disk "E:".

That disk contains nothing for ED. My DCS World installation is on "K:"

The other funny thing: when I "OK" the message box I get the "Choice of Coalition" message box (also attached). And when I hit the button for "Red" an axis fighter shows on the ground as if I had selected a role in MP, but any action results in a new error message.

I also attach one of the trackfiles that cause the error.

the reason why this is NOT working as that the script that the mission is calling is stored on the server .... and you do not have this script on your PC to execute

so I have to accept that I cannot replay "my" MP tracks?

I've been having trouble for the last month with the "Server ping timeout" error. I regularly get upwards of 450mbps down and 30mbps up with less than 50ms latency, and the problem only occurs on certain servers.

 

I found this in my DCS log: 2020-06-25 02:52:56.693 INFO NET: disconnected: 5 Server ping timeout

 

Is this something I need to fix on my side, or a setting needing to be looked into server side? Any help would be appreciated.

For what it's worth, I've quit playing DCS online simply because for whatever reason, my hard drive hits 100% usage and it simply never lets up. And that's with 16 gb of ram, which I know is not that much anymore for DCS.

 

It wasn't always this way though. There was a time maybe 2 years ago or so where everything was just rocking and rolling right along and it was a blast!

 

Apparently the system reqs have since gone through the roof. Could I go out and buy a separate solid state just for DCS? Sure. Could I throw in another 16 gb of ram? Sure. Would that likely fix most of my problems? I don't know...

 

And for me, I think that's the point. I'm just tired of having to fiddle around with all of this stuff for one single game. Maybe I'll get a "second wind" at some point, but for now, it's just simply not worth it to me.

I posted on another thread but the other day in MP flying F-14 things were going along great then suddenly pow, total slide show! Looked at my afterburner display and “video usage” dropped way down and “Bus” usage went thru the roof (dunno what that is or if it was chicken or egg)

Had to reboot entire computer to get it to settle down.

Sure gets frustrating but nature of the beast for now I guess!
