Problem with SFCON Default

Postby kudayta » Sun May 06, 2012 3:16 pm

The past two days I've been experiencing a lot of missed orders on this server. Is it on my end?

when i saw you mention it, i typed /ping and saw you had quite a bit packet loss (you had 10). this is probably why it was happening.

Check whats eating your download and upload. If nothing, its another client in the orders list slowing your chance for updating your game state. ( usually specs joining a long match. ) Also i'm pretty sure the servers are hosted in Germany or the UK.

Today connection was lost on sfcon 1v1 default. After disconnection server was no longer available in list. It restarted after ~3 min.

yeah, it's almost never present in the list after disconnect, though I can sometimes find it in "Recent Servers". Reconnecting is iffy at best though.

I too have been having connection issues recently, but I just think it's Comcast throttling me (the duplicitous bastards).

It seems there is some intentional server setting on sfcon 1v1 that does this. "Internet Advertising", or the like, is set, I believe, to expire soon after game begins. So, if you drop after this short time period, you can't find the game. Maybe it is intended to keep these games from becoming awash in spectators. I may be wrong, but it sure seems this server acts that way.

The only servers that I know for certain that are set to stop advertising are bert's (dedcon test, etc). They are configured to change 'AdvertiseOnInteret' to zero (don't advertise) after a pre-determined length of time (from game start).

I am pretty sure sfcon servers are not set up this way.

sfcon default turns off advertising very very quickly

if possible i would like senator to change this to keep advertising on the whole game. reason: if a game goes away, the game looks more dead on the metaserver. there could be a great 1v1 going on and no one knows about it. also less specs, which means less chance of a game happening right after it. also the spectators are too low (only allows 3)

please senator! :D

edit:

you can join sfcon default from the "recent server list" after it dissapears... good way to check if there is a good match going on in there or to reconnect after a drop.

Duplicitous Bastards would be a good movie, band, or tourney team name.
