testing of new netcode for strength

Postby TWC_Fatal_Error » Sat Nov 10, 2018 5:59 am

ok all those that read this forum:


TF has requested that we all load onto the Atag server for a test of the new code as per this letter

As I mentioned in our conversations, TF's coders will be doing a test of the online capability of the current TF 4.53 version of the game for the purposes of improving the netcode.

The test is on the ATAG 2 server on November 17th at 1800 GMT... will likely be for approx. 2 hours.

Players do not need to install any new data or patch their existing installs.

We are running a different version of the game on the ATAG 2 server, but nothing is incompatible... the new version has been created just to allow this testing.

If you can get your Squaddies and the people flying your campaign to take a break and fly a test on the server it would be very helpful to the coders working on improving the netcode.




please go and try and overload the server this way we will know how many it can handle <S> Fatal

I think you should make this a TWC get together with as many of us as possible. We could make up fighter groups, bomber groups with escort, Beaus and Hurricanes to hunt bombers or any combo of above. Could set up flights and elements to check for rubber banding etc, etc.

close order formation flying into flak infected isle of wight, low level stress test type flying in fighters and bombers together, 200ft off the deck. 6 up spawn six spawn and launch next 6 spawn and launch next six and so on until all are ready to head to the isle of wight where the code will be tested is in the staying together looking for rubberbanding and in the group close proximity to the flak and how it affects frame rates in larger groups
I will not be able to attend so if you guys are gonna have to press this home no stupid flying this is so we can get this code right fly like it means something leave the biplanes to another folly there exec!

Well, we ran it from 1pm to 2:30 EST
starting at 200 players,
kept crashing around 109 players,

tried it about 6 times, with different tweaks, and knocked
it back to 80 players max and still crashed.

Team Fusion is checking the crash records for info
and thanked us for our assistance.

However, as RedHawk from the 69th said,
"this is great, I have not seen this many players in the air at one time in a looong time..."
