This seems to have begun happening to me about 3 days ago, and it is one of the worst bugs ever. Thing is, I have yet to see anyone else complain about it, so I really have absolutely no clue what is the cause of this.
Basically, what happens is…ONLY in online games, a “spike” will occur. Not a lag spike, since the game runs at normal speed. During this spike, all input is ignored, even input such as hitting T to talk, or hitting Escape to exit the game. Everything is ignored. Instead, whatever it was you were pressing while the spike occurs, is what the character is going to do. For example, if you were holding forward just as this spike occurred, your character will continue to hold forward, no matter what you press. These spikes occur for about 3 seconds even, when you can’t input anything at all.
THis does not happen to me offline, in practice mode. It happens on kaillera, and in both the Godweapon and ANti3d servers. I’ve ruled out some possiblities…it can’t just be my keyboard/pad since I do not get these problems at all when I play offline on the emulator. I doubt it is Godweapon since it occurred in Anti3d as well. I doubt it is Emulinker simply because this has happened all of a sudden, 3 days ago to be exact. What the hell could possibly be causing this? It’s terrible, impossible to play anything for me now.
