Lessons learned from recent Tidi fights
- D/C. so if your hardware isn’t up to snuff…nothing i can do to help you
but if your potato mode (aka effects and stuff off, sound off, brackets off) and your still d/cing due to network d/c. then heres a tip
grab ping plotter 5. (free trial)
and test it to the IP 188.8.131.52 (Tranq server IP)
you will have 100% packet loss. but you want to see where its lost.
if its at the end like this
then your golden!
if it looks like this
then your losing packets before they ever get to Tranquility. hence you’ll be d/c time to time when client misses to many packets.
if its like this. call your IP. show them the ping plotter results. find out if its a node or router or modem.
the most unknown, but common, forms of this is an old router, old modem, or a router that isn’t capable of providing the full network speed provided by your IP. (thats what it was for me…so i upgraded routers)
it wont stop all d/cs… (if you look at the fight to long. you’ll be slapped by the server. so another tip is to look the opposite direction. issue commands by the overview. and watch the fight through twitch)
congratz. i just saved you 3 months of trial and error testing with CCP
- FIGHTERS WONT DO CRAP.
well…it is several thousand people sending commands at once…but where is your command?
Ctrl+alt+shift+m has your solution
click the outstanding calls and you can see any commands you’ve made that haven’t been done yet.
which for fighters can tell you if your command is out there. and when its done.
takes a bit of trial and error to figure out what is what. some code monkey will be laughing at me for not knowing immediately what the methods mean.
but eventually you’ll figure out what the methods mean
like in my screenshot, the fightermgr:cmdActivateabiltiyslot is my #2 fighter’s command to fire. if both fighter 1 and 2 was waiting, you’d see that method line there twice.
hope this helps
