  1. Server Issues? Questions? Tips for 4.33.1?

    Day 1 two flights made starting 1030. Excellent sam activity. Dodged 3 sa4 and 7 sa2 before being hit by an eighth because I did not get low soon enough. 2nd package 3 migs and a bomber downed plus 2 sam radar. No issues with wingmen. Considering day 1 there was no wall of migs so yet to think challenge too high. Its to be expected that there will be most AA and SA activity in 1st 2 days. More relaxed strike missions later on in the war. Reinstating HQ to more bases likely to be essential but Osan could provide one human squadron of block 40 for weapon variety and base location. The danger of a harder challenge is running out of aircraft if only 1 non HQ

    Are we talking about the same Israel theatre ? http://www.bmsforum.org/forum/showthread.php?23621-Israeli-Theater-for-BMS-4-33-v1-0 Regarding bridges I USED to give them some priority but when you see vehicles crossing in the water even before bridges are hit there doesn't seem too much benefit.

    Anyone else noticed day after day of low cloud despite the briefing saying otherwise ? I think 6-7 days max allows for those that want to see their efforts compounded to good effect and those wanting more AA action back. Possibly moving from cadet to veteran/ace will prolong the AA action ? I don't expect it to happen but even if only a 1 day test I would like to see the 433 Israel theatre run because I feel it is a much ligter load on a server (could well be wrong in that) and if there were a total absence of issues on a busy w/e day that just might mean something.

    Would it be possible at the next re start to up the challenge from Cadet to Ace or at least veteran ? Thanks. A.I wingman issues still showing up. The ground circling, airborne fast rolling and another I am seeing now. When viewed in external view he is constantly changing power settings in distinct steps between 70 and full AB and back to 70. Perhaps 12 steps in all. This can both be heard and seen in the infobar. As with the other stuff it goes away once he is un tied from flight lead by a RTB command. Human wingmen do not warp or show other signs of connection issues so why the A.I do is odd.

    Ive started to notice some players who do not display the `correct` 2935 connected port though they do display P2P. How significant this is I do not know. Most players DO display 2935 including myself (ive asked others to tell me).

    Just now had a server crash. Do I remember correctly ? that the client connected ports as displayed in the chat screen are the bms ports as forwarded ? Noticed a player whose connected port showed as 6625 though displaying the P2P `ok` connection. I do not think that's relevant to the crash as he was there for at least 20 mins prior. It was very soon after another client joined that it crashed but nothing to say that was the cause.

    I cant help but think the increased frequency of server crashes is not related to any BW issues and speaking of BW it does seem excessive to multiply the old 432 settings x12 (regardless of any `formula`). Average number of simultaneous clients is low (very low compared to the FO server) so there is ample bw at any time. Reports of these sort of issues in game when only 1or2 clients, both using 1024 then really adds to the mystery. As does successful no issue flights with 500 bw sharing server with 500 and 1024 players in camp. Personally at 500 (and probably 300) I have no missing textures other than maybe 1 in 20 flights. What I do have is noticeably frequent A.I wingman spinning on ground or in the air. This can be with other humans on server or none at all. Ive seen spinning A.I on ground whilst humans on ground are positioned correctly and report on radio they see the spinning A.I but that my jet is viewed fine and normal as is theirs to me. Whilst in flight and with a stable A.I wingman ive heard radio chat from players still on ground that they are suffering spinning wingmen. Ive only seen 1 example of visible lag (jets moving sharply backwards) since 433. Do not know if that is a sign of good data flow to clients for the most part. For the most part I do not suffer more frequent in flight problems than in 4.32 but there do seem to be more server crashes.

    Is the server in Kansas ? I do not get a great data flow on the FO Kansas based server.

    I very much doubt that the multiple use of Viper name is any factor since that's been the case since ever. However ive seen it confuse newcomers to falcon multi play sp why not use `HOST` for better distinction. I assume the crash logs are examined though probably need some translation by devs
  11. Server Issues? Questions? Tips for 4.33.1?

    To the best of my recollection the need for a physical AWACS in flight is ON by default. Ive always deselected that since 432. In a big red/blue air war such FO run then destroying the oppositions awacs would be part of the plan but I do not consider it a cheat in the basic campaign where I think they are very safe especially day 2 onwards
  12. Server Issues? Questions? Tips for 4.33.1?

    My edit was just too late. Falcon online have found the option just not suitable for a 24/7 server Host should be in 3D. Host should be first in 3D. Host should be last out of 3D. Host should be last out of the mission UI. 2D server mode is not supported in BMS 4.33. Also from a Dev ? Scoob_SBM "Host should be in 3D. Host should be first in 3D. Host should be last out of 3D. Host should be last out of the mission UI. 2D server mode is not supported in BMS 4.33. Hopefully that's sufficiently clear and absent of any ambuguity." As regards the host player does not die ? If so then why does `he` from time to time end up back in 2D ? suggesting that someone/something has crashed into his aircraft parked at kadena

    edited Re my dedicated server query it seems it just does not work well according to Archer so not any solution.
