Re: Moving to Paris

a note to the server runner - it's subjective and maybe be useless and irrelevant but ill post it anyway :

regarding the general hitreg / lag in simple fra, it felt like some server settings were changed around april 1 to 4, 2018

before that ( ~ march 15 to april 1 ), hitreg was ok at low population and outside primetime. now the hitreg is poor all the time, even at night / morning with less than 10 players. and it looks like it is poor for the majority too, not just me. most inf players need longer time to hit and kill players

i wonder what info and tools are used to try to assess which overall settings result in least lag and best hitreg. cpu utilization - total packet loss - jitter - ping ?

anyone agrees that hitreg has become worse last 10 days ?

FTFY.  "250Mbps" is a measure of throughput, not latency.  When your ISP moves you from 5Mbps to 25Mbps to 50Mbps to 100Mbps to 250Mbps, that doesn't change your latency.  (Not talking about switching ISPs or hardware; just "upgrade to a 10x faster plan.")  Your in-game ping does not "go down" corresponding to your throughput now being 10x higher than it was before, because that's not what higher throughput means.

Your sustained throughput (download a file, concurrent people streaming, etc.) is going to be great by upgrading to 250Mbps.  But your ping is expected to be the same as it was before.

Re: Moving to Paris

I tend to agree with BFSoldier 1, the server feel spongy since few weeks, I have unusual weird and small lags pretty much all the time and hitreg seem a little different to me too. Nothing dramatic tho, still well playable.

Re: Moving to Paris

It should probably be a little better now. Server instances are running on separate cores and removed some unnecessary processes. Your feedback is always welcome.

Re: Moving to Paris

there has been a large increase in players for simple fra, starting roughly 14 days ago. looks like 20 % or more, which is very unusual and strange at this time of the year. it feels as if somebody has done something to initiate this process. most likely the simple main admin ?

the big question is, how does one expand population for a server at such a late stage for bf1942 ?

round time has been set to 42 minutes, but that was, as i remember it, some days after the player boost started, so that alone shouldnt be responsible for it

simple fra player numbers suffered a lot after the paris switch, but if things continue like this, simple fra will soon be fully restored

if anybody is behind this, and it isnt just a random fluctuation, i'll say well done. seems like a big achievement

If no one else will, then I guess I'll take the credit...

Re: Moving to Paris

i noticed a huge increase of people on the highway to bangkok... uuhh.. well...


player count on any game changes over time... it is really dificult to say how and why without a proper investigation..

Anyhow i would like to steel some credit from sunshine... it was me since i stopped playing a few weeks ago... that sure must been a relieve for many!

anyhow i be back so expect the server to unpopulate soon since i treat everybody like sh1t all of the time

love ya all, except a few
