    sounds like net lag. on their end i bet they saw you, shot you in the face and you fell over without firing a shot.



    modern 'anti lag' stuff basically lets you both play out your own game for a bit, then it decides which one came first via timestamps (completely ignoring what you saw on your screen), and the earlier one wins - so damage doesnt get done, and you can die instantly for 'no reason'

    if you're seeing events that get undone... you're seeing lag. doesnt have to be on your end that causes it, and a fast connection doesnt count for much if another player lags, server lags, or someones screwing with your net (torrents, etc)

    I think I'm seeing quite a bit of that and it does get annoying. Of course, it works both ways. Sometimes you get lucky and are victorious, sometimes you get unlucky and get spanked. Nothing anyone can really do about it--just hope for the best.

    Trickson find the IP of a server and do a traceroute in command console (or download some net monitor app) and see if you are dropping packets and shit.

    Google is your friend! Traceroute will "trace" and show you every "hop" (router through which your data passes) from your computer to a server. So if it is physically farther away there are more hops (and more chances for data to be lost--"dropped packets").

    http://kb.iu.edu/data/aihy.html

    See Number 9 on the example on that page where it "times out"? That is bad. If you have any time outs at any point between you and the BF3 server you will have issues in game. But you also want to pay attention to the amount of time each hop takes (shown in milliseconds (ms)). If one is taking a long time compared to the others then that is going to cause you lag in game too as all the data just isn't getting back and forth quick enough.

    You can get the IP for a server on it's Battlelog page I think (and hope or this was a waste of time).

    Just play a bit of B2K, I love the MP7, I know statswise it doesn't stack up to the other guns, but it just feels so right. Reminds me a bit of the pp2000 from BC2, once I get the extended clip for it, it I will be beasting.

    Any one having problems with the server list ? Mine only shows about a few servers and when you scroll down only a few show up. Rebooted and it is still screwed up.

    FYI the TPU server I got will expire at the end of the month. I was planning on letting it, and then someone else could start one up if they wish.

    Thank you for the server while it lasted. It hard to keep one running and full (ran many counterstrike 1.6/CZ/Source servers in my day). We will have to figure out another means for teamspeak though. I wished I had a spare machine to run one but my cruncher is at work were the internet is strictly monitored and filtered. Almost NO incoming connections are allowed. I'm surprised I can even download the data to crunch.

    someone should just run a personal server at home, they're free.

    i run one, but due to crappy upload here in Au (and no 24/7 PC) it wouldnt work.

    edit: talking about teamspeak

    If I had an extra laptop I would. I just trashed a old P4 mobile laptop that had the screen and keyboard busted :banghead:

    I will look around to see what I have in terms of spare parts to piece together a cheap PC. I wished I could swipe one of our visix boxes from work, its a 45nm C2D mobile with 2GB DDR2 intel 4200HD in a small 8x8 square box.

    Here is one. We have like 14 of these.

    *EDIT*

    Newegg usta have them :(

    Seriously man I was against it. Not against us having a BF3 server but against you spending the money alone as I kinda knew not many would use it......But thank you man. Really it was awesome of ya.

    Im also glad to hear you are keeping the TS server open. That does get used......A LOT.

    yeah i knew there was a good chance... I know if i had put more effort into it it would've been better, but honestly it was a pain and made the game less fun - I guess I forgot about that re:bc2.

    still, had some real good fun on it so i'm not down about it :)
