I know this blind testing was not perfect, it does rely on the player to form a honest opinion before the test state is revealed. I didn't make a proper blind test because it wouldn't have worth the effort, and it would be even more complicated for testers.

The fact that running the FPU at a higher precision makes the game smoother was discovered back in january by Soldierr and me. We were researching the input delay problem caused by the game timing the frames a bit wrong, and "overfeeding" the server with player input. I traced it back to inaccurate math, and Soldierr made a patch to change the Direct3D API call to not mess with FPU states, so the game runs with higher floating point precision (basically the game can do math more accurately). When we first tested this i noticed that the game was kinda running a bit smoother, then Soldierr also said it, so we knew that we aren't just imagining this.

I got some feedback about the tests, none of it was negative, which is what i was curious about. If it does nothing for somebody, its good. If somebody's game will run better in any way, its great. This means that i can just enable this by default and at worst it won't have any effect.

I made this mod because i had all this information about how to improve the game, and it felt wrong to just sit on it. Leaving hints amongst hundreds of forum posts won't help players have a better experience in this game. Even at this point i don't know what exactly you discovered that i "rediscovered".

Please if any of you know anything about this game that may improve it, just write it down properly, don't sit on it. Also i'd like to ask you to keep this topic about the mod or possible improvements to the game. I think all of you have the common goal of keeping this game populated so we all can enjoy it.

I think you know what we had discovered and i'm glad there's finally someone with the tech knowledge to put it to work. You forgot to mention that you can test these changes of yours without any modding or files. "Running the FPU at a higher precision" can be experienced after having your game open for 35 minutes and then playing it. Also the thing in your file that clears the buffer after each death is basically the same as having your game open in windowed mode and then pressing the alt key to freeze it for a second. A great coincidence that both of these changes you made are something we have been trying to tell people for a while now, but instead of someone smart replying back to us and discussing it, somebody has run with it in private chats. Everything we've said in forums and private chats have been our ingame experience and these weren't planned posts, we were hoping for someone smarter than us to explain it properly and make something out of it or at least discuss. We are always ready to discuss things that improve the game, got nothing to hide.

PS These changes improve the game but will not make you a super pro like me, i'll 1v1 any of you dorks at any time!!!

The idea to add a blind test to test experimental features is interesting , but unfortunately it cannot be a proper blind test, unless the player is honest about his conclusions, simon and deeko are clearly excluded from this group. For laughs, you can add a patch called smoothRegBlindTest, that does absolutely nothing, and you will have some visionaries claim it improves their game by leaps and bounds.

There's no point in lying if there's literally a file you can look inside of. Those are the changes we were talking about. Are you trolling us at the cost of your own playerbase or are you just dense? Both probs

Imagine, this guy used to own one of the biggest public servers loool

#15 Re: BF1942 Discussion » Battlefield 1942 Plus » 2024-05-01 07:16:12

Question. Is something similar being tested server side?

Well, i actually know loads of players who have videos with the same if not better regs than me and that would also mean that they use something. That's a lot of people who have to keep it to themselves and know how to hide. I don't always record, but i can if necessary.

#24 Re: Feedback » SiMPLE is dying quickly now » 2024-04-25 17:54:58

Depends on what you call luck, any examples?

#25 Re: Feedback » SiMPLE is dying quickly now » 2024-04-25 16:14:47

That's a wild conspiracy theory Sepp. So many years and so many players, yet zero evidence. My theory is that most players, including you and flasche, just can't take a loss. Which is more likely?

Isn't that what the admins are for? I think there's more to that story

Did one of those annoying jewish kids push you down the slide? I didn't have a playground anyhow, my childhood was all gray and sad

Random topic tbh. tuia, caltech and ironfart have clearly been baselocked way too many times, they need something to grab onto. Be it an entire country, just to try and get to me lal
