I’ve seen a few people playing in the debug server, and finally got someone to come in with me.
Please don’t give up on this yet, I know others who have this problem consistently and I’m trying to get them in with me to test things out.
For those who have the issue randomly, but are having problems reproducing it, try using the Excellent setting. That always drives it crazy for me.
** Mame .64 from Darktemplarz.com
Not sure if it’s noteworthy but I use the keyboard.
What kind of Internet connection were you using?
** Cable for me, Neo’s might be DSL, I’m asking.
What was your ping?
** 20~ish, his was 98
How many players in the game?
**2 (DeadlyRave-neo and myself), and no one else was in the server.
Which player number were you?
** He was player 1, I was P2
How bad was the lag/delay during this game?
** Some delay/a bit of lag the first time, but in the entrance message you noted that would happen. The second time was worse because we were using Excellent.
Approximately how may minutes into the game did the problem occur?
** The first time it had to be at least 8 minutes into it, possibly longer. The second time we ran it, closer to 4 minutes.
Describe the problem
** In these two instances, it happened at the select screen. Neo (player 1) picked the wrong character and autoguard.
How long did it last?
** As per the instructions of the server we dropped after the problem occured (after he typed ghost). I’ll talk about other times (not on this server) below.
Did you have to drop or reset the game to make it stop?
** see above.
If you know, did the other players see it happen?
** The first time I asked him if he picked that character on purpose (to make sure it wasn’t desync or he simply made a mistake), the second game (we dropped, left, rejoined and restarted) he typed it right after and dropped.
**Older instances: I was talking about this with Sinala/EWAShock (also a KB user, usually), and he mentioned it’s almost always during point with alot of action going on (for him). Like the other player’s commands are interfering with his own.
When that happens to me, it’s usually I’ll hit a directional and a Hard Punch (“button 3” in mame) will come out. The opponent can be doing whatever, and I’ll jump in any direction and a punch will come out. Or worse, hold back to block and the punch comes out. This generally happens after the game’s been running for a long time (10+ minutes). It also tends to happen a bit for a few seconds then go away, and randomly will come back.
I’ve also ended up picking the wrong character at the selection screen. One instance was in XvSF, I was just moving the cursor around and both of my characters got picked without me hitting anything but directions.
