This is very similar to a problem that we experience where peaks in incoming messages, along with a peak in CPU, cause lag spikes in games. It has completely restricted our ability to scale. Interesting that you feel it is tied to sendAndLoad which we also use. We have also tried to code around conc...

Is this a problem with the timer resolution? Does linux have a higher system timer resolution than windows?

I was referring to client side? And the reason to know the error is so that you do not spend an hour checking everything else (including restarting machines) because you assume a login error would be created if there was a login failure!

Multi-threaded actionscript

Is it possible to use actionscript extensions when using more than one extension worker thread? I have tried using more than one extension thread but it lead to problems when certain bits of code executed at the exact same time. Is there a special way to construct actionscript code for concurrent ex...

ok I found it. You are only considered properly 'logged in' when the roomlist arrives. That really needs to go in the help file...

Thanks, I am already doing that however.

Also, onPublicMessage event does not give me a sender!

If I join another room and then go back to the lobby room it all starts working...

getActiveRoom().getUserList() is returning no users

On the client I do a normal login (onLogin is called) and then manually join room 1. After joining, calling getActiveRoom().getUserList() returns no users.

Also, unless I call getRoomList() after login, the onJoinRoom event does not provide a room and getActiveRoom() returns undefined.

Some one else is keeping that user logged in I bet, so it fails to login when you do it.

I have uploaded a new version which uses a random user name. You may need to clear your web cache.

Strange.

I have uploaded a test to:

http://www.casualcollective.com/pingtest3.swf

You can toggle the extra SendObject on and off (starts on).

On all our machines here and via a separate server, we get the same bad pings.

I will create a fla to demonstrate this problem. Please make sure you test it against a server on the internet, as local host does not seem to cause this problem. Also, the first message goes through ok (if it was the ping) but it is the second message that lags. I did some further testing sending m...

I have found the problem. In our code we were sending an object to the players in the room in a function that was called using an interval: smartfox.sendObject(o); followed immediately by: smartfox.sendObjectToGroup(o,[userid]); or a: smartfox.roundTripBench(); or a: smartfox...
