Just had a battle (EU) with perfect fps and ping and planes were warping all over the place ...

Each of 3 causes you described will have different symptoms.

 

Easiest - local machine CPU usage results with a slideshow - FPS loss - _EVERYTHING_ jumps as in the most severe cases number of frames per second drops below threshold that human eye perceives a s movement, visible in upper left corner where fps counter is located.

 

Local machine bandwidth saturation results in increased latency - plane reacts and fires with a significant delay, latency indicator shows much higher latency than normal. Also packet loss indicator may show more than 0%.

 

Finally: ISP issues - symptoms are similar as local machine bandwidth saturation.

 

Teleporting planes can happen when server updates planes' positions too rarely, without visible packet loss on client side, it's server issue.

Have seen the same phenomenon - as Zip has mentioned in another topic, it may well be down to ISPs struggling to cope with unusually large domestic broadband demand in daytime.

Hi, just coming back from a battle in the Vampire where I couldn't hear my guns firing. Additionally no projectiles were displayed. Not my own, and also no enemy ones.

Sometimes you only realize how essential certain things are when they're gone, all of a sudden :(

And ran into another old bug, gun sight had moved to above/left of where it should be. Very disorienting ...

This happens to me about three times a month. Last time the gunsight dissapeared even completely... this happened never before, as it was always just moved to the up-left, when this bug appears.

There is one insteresting thing about bugfests during a battle when you are in flight

 

These things happen ONLY when on flight with someone and always appear after some time, they never appear on the beginning of the battle, and mostly (but maybe not always) both of the flight members are affected:

 

- cannot write in chat

- the player tab shows all planes/players with zero personal points

- the upper counters do not show the progress points of the teams

- the indicators do not show the progress of capping of the sectors

- also the upper indicators show messy info about who owns which sector

- in the end of the battle you are informed about victory, but actually u lost and vice versa

- dead planes with zero hitpoints are flying everywhere (and are also indicated on the minimap) until they respawn

All above mentioned bugs are present at the same time - that makes the battle very bizar... and frustrating and pointless for sure. There is maybe more to this i think, but now i just dont remember everything.

I wrote about it somewhere, I believe it's a synchro issue. Your client plays the game on its own end, server doesn't get the info and you see all those strange things. It's a known and old issue, unfortunately still not adressed. Happens outside of a flight too, but it seems flights are affected more often. The only remedy I know is to relog (i.e. re-synchro with the server), and clearing the cache seems to be of little use here.

The last one... Pounding an A-C like mad (Buffalo) with no apparent damage done, not funny in a furball.

Game crashes when pressing Alt and F4 together during play. Just annoying.

All fine here, but I read NA server was sort of heavily hit today with lots of issues.

All my missions counted off correctly.  I must admit I don't check that the crew experience is working because I rather expect it not to be.

No connection problems, but something I have genuinely not seen for myself before (although I've read about it): invisible aircraft (enemy bot Typhoon).  The sound is there, the red bar indicating health is there, and the name/aircraft type are there, but the model/airframe/whatever you want to call it is completely invisible.  Was shot down before I had time to get a pic.

It is also stuck at 23/100, no matter how much about 5000, it does not count

I had around 6 or 7 games this morning before work without any issues. Token counters for missions worked. Yesterday I had a few lockups in game, which I normally never have.
