some ideas for some problems


Recommended Posts

for the synk problem:

time how long people are on the menu and kick them off if theyre there too long

-----or----

have the clients resynk every 5 mins or so

hacking problem:

check the locks and compare to the last loc and if theres a huge change(eg warping) kick them off

----or---

change the mem addys and have them change every server restart

underneeth ground problem:

like the hacking 1 check the lock and if there z position is lower then he lowest point on the map bump them up or respawn

spawn killing:

make it so the users are given health pickups for the first 5 seconds or so

i dunno if it helps but it was just my thoughts

people sitting in the menu isn't related to the sync problems.

They are supposed to 'resync' many times per second already, and do on the whole, its just a specific bug drops some peopel out of the global sync - somethign we have been working hard to fix :)
check the locks and compare to the last loc and if theres a huge change(eg warping) kick them off
VC has several warps built into the map already, glitching can cause others so not really feasable.
change the mem addys and have them change every server restart
Not really possible to do so, the memory adresses just ARE they dont vary in this way
like the hacking 1 check the lock and if there z position is lower then he lowest point on the map bump them up or respawn
Again, there are perfectly 'legal' ways of getting below ground.
make it so the users are given health pickups for the first 5 seconds or so
In 0.4 we made the player unkillable for a few seconds upon spawning. Spawn kill is adressed in the upcoming 0.5.x version. The preview images (not the testing ones) give clues to this, take a look at the news archive.

Do you mean the ability to select a spawn location?

I liked it, because now you can get hurt before you even see your character, maybe it should still be there but for a shorter time

new idea

stor the health and ammo on vars in the server

when the client detects damage send a command to the server to retreave the new health

instead of the server getting the data from the client the cliet gets it from the server

now if a client changed the values it wouldnt change on the server. this could also be used against thoes who pause just because they pause doenst mean they dont get hurt. when the return they receave the new health

This would work if we dealt with honest players. Unfortunately when dealign with dishonest ones, cheats, they will simply edit things so they recieve no damage, therefore none would be sent by thier game/client.

this could also be used against thoes who pause just because they pause doenst mean they dont get hurt. when the return they receave the new health

Well no. Quite the opposite. When paused their game/client has no awareness of being hurt and would therefore take no damage. Exactly as happens now.

Not to meantion that you appear to warp around the screen when you are selecting your character
