Problem with server sending UDP

I have been doing some analysis on the bandwidth usage of my application, and found an issue. I thought I was sending certain messages from the server to clients with UDP, but in analyzing network captures with WireShark, I was finding that all traffic from the server to the client was being done wi...

Doh, meant to post this in the SFS2X Questions forum. This isn't the right place. I'll repost there.

I am also very concerned about this feature not working as advertised, and hope a resolution can be reached. Currently, the documentation reads: » Known issues / limitations The current BlueBox shipping with SFS2X RC2 is already production ready and has been tested under different scenarios of heav...

I understand, but this is no different from any other web-based system. Funny thing. I was logged into my steam account on my desktop. I logged into the same account on my laptop. Upon returning to my desktop, I was greeted by a message telling me I had been logged out because my account was logged...

Thank you, that's the piece of the API I was missing. It works and returns reasonable values now.

The server not knowing is reasonable due to how this is being calculated. I suspected as much.

If I were a legitimate user and someone else managed to get my login info , I would want to be informed that that is why I was disconnected. Otherwise, I could easily get in a situation where someone is continually forcing me out, and I don't know why; to me it would look like there were connectivit...

I'm looking at the Unity/C# API. It does list the definition of PING_PONG, but does not list the parameters as it does for other events.

PingPongRequest is likewise in the Unity/C# documentation, although it doesn't tell me much.

I'm also highly suspicious of the results I am getting back. Using a server and a client on two computers directly next to each other (with only the one client logged into the server), I am getting back values >400ms. I can only guess what is going on here since that felt much too high, so I tried l...

That contains significantly more information than the docs do. The C# api docs contain the definition of PING_PONG, but list no parameters whatsoever. I'm more than a little frustrated here. I don't know how developers are expected to know to look for something called PING_PONG when given no more in...

Disconnection reason on force login

When using the new force login, I feel like I am getting insufficient information on the client who was forcefully disconnected. (Using Unity client) I simply get a connection lost event with the reason as "unknown"; unless I have missed something, it looks no different than losing connect...

New client-server lag measurement

Hello. Once again, I am having one heck of a time finding this item in the api documentation:
[NEW] Support for client-server lag measurement added.
Can someone point me in the right direction?

Yes, that took care of it nicely.

And for anyone crazy like me who actually likes editing the .xml file directly, the relevant entry is <isForceLogout>.

I now notice this note that I missed previously:
[NEW] Flag to activate/deactivate the "force login" system added to AdminTool's Zone Configurator module.


I suspect therein is my answer.

Clients receiving multiple disconnection events

I am encountering an issue where my clients are receiving the CONNECTION_LOST event multiple times in certain circumstances. I am using RC-3 (and unsure if this was an issue previously) and the Unity client. It would appear that when the disconnect reason is anything other than UNKNOWN, a second eve...
