Dealing With High Ping Players
« on: November 01, 2010, 09:57:00 am »
I remember Love making a video similar to this ages ago but I couldn't find it
and since I was messing with snik yesterday i decided to put this together.

Since Snik didn't really understand the issue with 300+ ping players, I'm sure
there's a bunch of experienced players on aX that also aren't really sure about it
(not to mention newer players).

So check this out and i dunno maybe you'll learn something new.

(watch in higher res if u want)

Excuse the meh editing, I'm no falky lol.

good vid, but I already knew this :D I experienced it a lot of times when I thought I passed someone, but only passed his "image" so when I got in front I got spun out.

sometimes high ping players are behind you but in real are the front. easy to catch lag and push or ram others.

example:

DraggingMTA
BY THEMANINDRAG
#   Time   Racer
1)   0:48.979   [SR]Jake
2)   0:48.980   [AH]Jarno[NL]
3)   0:49.195   [AK47]skunk
4)   0:49.216   xXx777

5)   0:49.230   LOL[UA]

i have a car length lag. i tested it with M4 and i was ramming him in the front but he saw ramming me behind. in that race we unbelievably synchronized lags and set highscores. he was pushing me and i was pushing him at the same time! :o

Yeah sometimes we laggers can get others to push us after a mistake without you even knowing lol. Can also use your images as battering rams lol. However this is not good <>

Ping limit 200. Good idea vert. :L

Well, it is shocking to see how far back the trail is.

But, I think if me and Snoopy made a video, it wouldn't be as shocking. The problem comes from players from countries thousands(guess?) of miles away from the server. Pings of 300+.
For example, the only two people who created a video to demonstrate this are an Aussie and a Filipino.

<a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uxPETnFEOKg" target="_blank">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uxPETnFEOKg</a>

why do videos lag when watching them embedded with 1080p?

EDIT: i tested with internet explorer and it no longer lags. could just be ANOTHER problem with opera :(

is there any problem of lags/rams when 2 players with a ping of 500 race together ?

sorry if it sounds silly ;D

but if it s ok, can a server increase latency to a min value for all racers? (400 by example)

it would sort problems with high ping players

It just means that the other car is really a lot further infront/behind you.

And sure boots, I'll find somewhere else to play  :(

My ping is around 200-ish and the "image apartness" is not as great as vertigo's. So I think the lower your ping the smaller is the distance ???

I think you don't get the point of this thread lol. It's not How To Avoid Damn Laggers but how to deal with players having various pings.
