http://odamex.net/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=752 Bug #: 752 Summary: sv_timelimit forces server settings updates to occur too frequently Classification: Unclassified Product: Odamex Version: 0.5 Platform: All OS/Version: All Status: NEW Severity: normal Priority: P2 Component: Server & Client AssignedTo: odamex-bug-reporter@xxxxxxxxxxxxx ReportedBy: grandpachuck187@xxxxxxxxx When a server has sv_timelimit set, it calculates the number of tics left until the time limit expires and sets sv_timeleft to this value at an interval of once a second. Updating sv_timeleft forces the server to send all clients all of the server settings (roughly 1000 bytes, depending on the individual server). As a result of the way the server handles packet acknowledgement, the packet containing the server settings is often resent to the client multiple times before the server finally receives acknowledgement of receipt. The duplicate packets of server settings can come to dominate the client's bandwidth, preempting the positional updates of other players and other unreliable messages. -- Configure bugmail: http://odamex.net/bugs/userprefs.cgi?tab=email ------- You are receiving this mail because: ------- You are the assignee for the bug.
