AI warps when playing in dedicated server:
Mission is: I44_COOP_LeftBehind_1-4_v1-1.Chernarus.pbo

Compare that to the "normal" a2 warping:

I was alone in the server, had ping of 17, 0 desync and the dedi server was some uber xeon 8 core machine on both of those videos.

I have also yet to see a non-warping human player in a TvT mission online.
It is pretty much like this to me as well, despite low pings and whatnot:

In single player I don't see any AI warping...

Anyone else with similar experiences?

Pretty sure this is an ArmA2 / Connection issue unrelated to I44 but will keep an eye out.

Pretty sure it is a "basic.cfg" issue serverside. http://community.bistudio.com/wiki/basic.cfg

A bandwith setting issue so not I44 related. Server admins should try and tune their servers settings and thus the lag of AI observed with optics. For example:

MaxMsgSend = 1024;
MaxSizeGuaranteed = 1024;
MaxSizeNonguaranteed = 64;
MinErrorToSend = 0.0025;

Could someone provide a server name/address that doesn't have this issue (and their server.cfg values if possible).

Is there a Human player warping ticket somewhere as well?

Updated by kju about 6 years ago

Try to tweak:
MinErrorToSend = 0.0025;

Human players warping is related to:
  • Bad player connection
  • Player is far away (high ping)
  • Server is overloaded (has low FPS itself)
  • Player has different animations than you

Perhaps I44 overloads the CPUs. Has any server admins report back anything related to this? I would imagine that some of them log the server FPS values.

Post to be removed if you please.

Performance should improve over time as bugs are eliminated, nothing we can do about A2's netcode though.
