Server-client communication bug.
« on: September 02, 2013, 01:18:19 pm »
Hi
I have just played INF and wanted to check something out.
Actually my friend GhoOst was still vanishing and respawning in his position - he was running, firing and so... He was just playing, but my chat console was screaming
GhoOst has joined Alpha Team!
GhoOst has joined Alpha Team!
GhoOst has joined Alpha Team!
GhoOst has joined Alpha Team!
....

I wanted to go to a spectator mode and watch him. I clicked 5 - spectator in the ingame menu and....
I think, that a demo in attachment will be better explanation. I'm default observed player, GhoOst is in red team with green hair and pants.
It's not the first time since 1.6.5 I noticed that bug (respawning while running).

---------------------

Second thing, probably having no place in the demo, are "blank kills". It happened a lot times a lot time before - dunno if since 1.4.2 or earlier. I play, run and somebody kills me - but I don't hear playerdeath.wav, no death voice. There isn't also any record in kill-log. Just gostek become dead. Period.
It happens not to me, but also to players I kill. I haven't any kill-log of killing them, no sound - just my shot and enemy become ragdoll.
Sometimes somebody return the flag or capture and I haven't information on the bottom of screen, no sound, only teambox stop displaying "out of flag" and playerslist and teambox adds points.

God damn... my English becomes worse and worse...

I hope my explanations are clear.

Both issues sound like they are related to packetloss packetloss.
The main issue is that Soldat has no reliable communication support. This means if you, for some reason don't get packets weird things will occur.

Fixing this will take a while since it probably requires heavy netcode updates.
Would be great if you could add them to the bugtracker if they aren't there already.

Accidentally I added the last one twice. I'm sorry.
No problem. I fixed it.
Thank you for reporting.
