DCS 1.5 Open Beta multiplayer performance and crashing

Post by (HHC/229) Dabomb on Sat 10 Oct 2015 - 1:31

I stumbled upon this interesting tidbit re: 1.5 this morning:

http://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=149032

Apparently, for reasons unknown, ED configured the net speed parameter for multiplayer in 1.5 to a single megabit per second (1Mbps) up and down as the default net speed for everybody.  Based on what I've read, it used to be 2Mbps in DCS 1.2.  This is now hardcoded in 1.5 and is not (by default) user-configurable like it used to be.

But there's always a way.  So, for those of you who would like to help me test/experiment, I would ask you to create a new file in your C:\Users\username\Saved Games\DCS.openbeta\Config directory called autoexec.cfg and copy/paste the following 2 lines into it:

net.download_speed = 262144
net.upload_speed = 262144

This will set your multiplayer upload/download speed back to 2Mbps.  Because of the available bandwidth, I have set this to 10Mbps on the dedicated server.   Smile

Let's try this and see if it helps at all with the warping/rubber-banding/crashing.

Hit me up on teamspeak with questions.  I should be around today.

WOW!!!

Way cool daBomb!

This might explain all my ugly pauses, etc while in MP. I flew around for HOURS yesterday in the SP part of 1.5 (did the entire P-51D "Campaign"...funny word for it, and tons of dogfights), WITHOUT A SINGLE PAUSE (hiccup)!

I then went into a random MP server (listing a ping roughly the same as ours) that was empty. Small (very small) pauses....and rather few and far between.

Next jumped in a "Free Flight" server with tons of other knuckleheads in it, and YOU GUESSED IT! Pauses out the whaazoo!!!! What you describe would certainly explain some of this...

I have to head over to my FAA doctors office this morning for my semi-annual 1st Class exam (the dreaded "finger wave"....and THAT'S why I go to Dr. "Little Fingers" Phil....lol). I'll be back by early afternoon, and would love to test it with ya!

I'll check into TS when I get home.

THANKS!!!!!

From a guy on the "ED Testers Team"...

Ok sadly it looks like this is the reason we have all been seeing so much warp and lagging on all servers in 1.5!!!

We have manually edited our config file to allow our server to have a larger limit, for now it seems to be working and the server is much more stable! We set the limit on our server to 10mb up and 10mb down, it was initially set at 1mb up and 1mb down, by the 1.5 update!

I advise everyone to go in and edit these settings, the "hardcoded" settings are not adequate at all for flying online!

Please see this post - http://forums.eagle.ru/showpost.php?...&postcount=394"

=========================

Sadly, I'm off in search of furniture with the lovely Mrs. BBall, so I won't be able to test this until later today (sigh...the "joys" of matrimony....right?)

Flyer,

I swear it worked several hours ago (that's my story, and I'm sticking to it!).

Hey guys,

Happy to report that I had NO PAUSES last night in the server (well, one very small one, but I think it was when someone was spawning in, and it was more of a hiccup than a pause). I flew around for about :30-:45 and it was smooth as silk. I then applied dabomb's .cfg file voodoo magic (just to see what would happen), and all seemed fine. I did notice a slight increase in FPS (guessing about 10%).

The bad news is that some of us (Furlow, Froggy, etc) experienced some random kicks out of the server. So.....LIKE EVERY OTHER DCS FIX UNDER THE SUN....it seems to be a mixed bag.

later....
