Tuia, will you be so kind and share your knowledge now about whether it is possible to modify the hits to be better by the client (or even from the server side)? ... And if so, what would it take to get there?

Re: Moving to Paris

we can make a big survey / report / investigation, taking months, trying to describe whether ping and lag has gotten better or worse .....

my thoughts after playing and observing for 5+ hours : ping and lag has gotten worse for 75+ % of all players. a lot of the regulars who probably are connecting to the new ip directly, seems to struggle more with inf, and are getting worse hit regs. i could be wrong of course

the full ping / lag picture will only be available when the old server isnt redirecting anymore, but by then it might be too late to switch back to it, if the server manager changes his mind. two full ip switches could be made, but then the player loss will be higher

some tweaking can possible be done, but i doubt things will be as good as on the roubaix server .....

maybe that server switch wasnt such a good idea .... but still, kudos to tuia for trying    :-)

Re: Moving to Paris

simon, I think there is nothing you can do to improve hits, I am referring to you as the client. Because, a player (client) sends to the BF1942 server, every 30 ms, packets containing his inputs and it is the server that decides if there is a hit or not, irrespective of the rate a client sends its packets. On the other hand, a BF1942 server can improve its hit detection. A BF1942 server typically sends to each client, every 50 ms, packets containing information about the world (players positions, shots fired, etc.), which is a 20 Hz rate, a bit low I would say. I think it should be easy to increase this rate, I don't know I've never tried it, however this would probably cause more CPU stress.
The BF1942 netcode is a bit rudimentary, it lacks some features which other games from the same time, like CS, already had it. Read this for more information about the basic ideas of multiplayer networking: https://developer.valvesoftware.com/wik … Networking

PS: As I was writing this, lost it all and had to rewrite it again, bummer. Sorry, I had to skip some parts.

Re: Moving to Paris

Here's a detailed paper that describes the BF1942 networking model: https://archive.org/details/tribes-networking-model

The only major difference is that the Datablock manager is replaced by static data that is verified to match on the client and server.

BTW, the new server must be at a really good hosting center, connection is rock solid:

--- 163.172.13.221 ping statistics ---
15 packets transmitted, 15 received, 0% packet loss, time 14018ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 142.085/142.671/143.661/0.646 ms

Well, I guess there is nothing to do with the higher ping. The server has moved - take it or leave it.

if possible, can we maybe get a little more detail of the reason(s) for the server move to paris (latency, lag, financial, security etc.) ? were there any issues at roubaix ?

Re: Moving to Paris

maybe exaggerating / being more dramatic, will help a bit more ?

SERVER IS CLOSING PERMANENTLY NOW ! UPDATE YOUR SERVER LIST !
THIS SERVER IS MOVING NOW ! - USE NEW IP 163.172.13.221 NOW !
THIS SERVER IS CLOSING PERMANENTLY NOW -NEW IP 163.172.13.221
THIS SERVER IS SHUTTING DOWN VERY SOON ! - UPDATE SERVER LIST

Probably just a few percent at best, but could be worth a try

Re: Moving to Paris

Thank you, xp fanatic. You are right, I should have thought of that. The messages have to be exaggerated so players eventually notice it. I don't think informing what is the new IP address helps at all, because few, if any, players connect to IP, but by server name, what do you think?
It is  a bit concerning, because, right now, about half of the players have made the transition.

For what it's worth, that's something we pondered in EA117's recent IP address change(s), too.  Let me know if you're seeing results that contradict this, but I feel like the problem with "only worry about name" will be because of how the Battlefield 1942 client treats "Favorite" server entries.

If you tell someone "use the Update button, and then look for the new SiMPLE entries", they will press Update and then say "I see them!  I see the SiMPLE entries!"  But they're seeing the ones for the old IP address that were marked as "Favorite", and don't distinguish that they're truly "new" or for the updated IP address.

Making the person aware of what IP address they're expecting to see on those entries, and to be sure and un-mark the old entries as Favorites and mark the ones with the updated IP address as their new Favorites, seemed necessary.

Like we tried to explain in http://ea117.com/texas.  Please feel free to nuke this line if you'd rather not have the link here.

Maybe we should also think of the players that don't have the "update server" patch, so they'll update but server list will be empty.
Maybe we should also make a new highlighted topic about that either?

Also one was updating serverlist and gets 163.xxxx as simple server, when he hits again the update button it shows the 188.xxx simple server in the server list
