Bug-free networking, here we come...

This Document originally posted in the "Mars Explorer" Group

Greetings everyone;
 
My radio internet was installed several days ago, and it works great! Among other things, I can now actually play Mars Explorer... With the ability to battle-test networking issues now within my grasp, I have determined to bullet proof Mars Explorer's multiplayer system once and, hopefully, for all. This release is focused on networking reliability, with a couple other features thrown in for good measure.
 
Please let me know how it works for you!
 
-Aubrey
 
P.S. Only a webplayer is available, as I don't intend to leave this in beta stage for more than a couple days. Once we have it working great, it will go final.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Update: I just uploaded a new version (refresh to access it) which resolves some issues with ramosphere and tank CG conflicts, and incorporates an incredible idea I received from MacDane this morning: Zorb balls...
 
Update 2: 1.9.76 is now final!
 
  • Networking, internal game object references, tag logic, and vehicle orginization / instantiation code rewritten from the ground up. Should be vastly more reliable!
  • Tag has been taken to the next level with RamoSpheres! (I think they were Kruncher's idea, but whoever's idea they were certainly deserves credit for them)
  • Various GUI enhancements, including resizing several buttons for dashboard widget display size and reorganizing the buttons at the bottom of the server list screen
  • "Exit Game" button is now visible only in native applicatios
  • Server name shortened from 60 char max to 45
  • Lasers now last for 10 seconds instead of five - much more fun at slowest server laser speeds
  • Smart cam is now perfectly smooth - no more "jarring" while your vehicle sails over the top of a parabolic trajectory and the camera transitions from an up to a down lookahead mode
  • Lasers pack a bit more punch
  • Every laser you fire that hits a non-quarry when you aren't quarry decreases your score by one point. Take that, noobs!
  • New server setting for tank tread grip. At low grip levels, the increasingly large torque produced by each tread assembly's motor as your speed decreases while climbing super steep hills will rotate the track and "ratchet" you off the hill
  • Tank now has a simplified body to display at low rendering quality levels
  • Instead of rewriting the (single player) tutorial map to work with all the new (multi player) networking code, I just removed it. It will probable make a comeback when I get an opportunity.
  • Max 300 chars message length

Aubrey,
There is something up with it, as it refuses to load
Is this a link issue, or a game issue?

Sorry - I just finished uploading a new version that solves an issue with RamoSpheres messing up vehicle CGs when they are present while vehicles are instantiated.
 
Should be working now!
 
 
Edit: Really sorry, but it looks like my upload didn't resolve the issue - and now I am being called for dinner... I will release a fix - and then be on for a game or two - as soon as I can finish :)

Everything seems great so far! I can't wait for the app version. It will be interesting to see how low some people's scores will get. ;-)
 
P.S. Congratualtions on the radio internet. Does this mean we'll see you in games a lot more often?

re; tag, tagged, quarry change
 
I noticed instead of it saying Player is now the quarry
it says player tagged somebody
 
I also noticed where it should say player tagged somebody *in the old system*
it now says player got somebody
 
I'm sorry Aubrey, but I like the old system better, less confusing
plus, quarry is so much a part of the game, why change it?

I agree. To quote an old T.V. commercial, "Where's the Quarry!?!?". Wait, that wasn't right... oh well. Please bring the quarry back. We had a picture of the clubhouse and everything.

Hi all.
Although I have only begun testing this version, it seems most promising to me.
The RamoSpheres looks awesome and they seem to work like a charm. 
- I tried adding a bot and was actually able to buzz it at high speed by low passing it as it tried to drive away from me. The poor thing never knew what hit it.
 
I also love the way the RamoSpheres look and use them to navigate in the air. This might sound odd to you, but just try to switch the RamoSpheres on and press 4 to switch view. You can now read your relative rotation by watching the grid rotate in your view whan you turn, loop or roll. If you see one of the poles tailing your buggy, you are either going up or you are on the fast train for a date with the Martian surface. :O)
 
But now I will go and see if someone shows up on the server.
 
Have fun.
 
- MacDane

Ok, so I tried it out for a brief period of time on the windows laptop. Currently, the highest rendering spped i can get is 12-14 FPS on fastest. Any solutions to that? The ramospheres look awesome. (Ramospheres, ACTIVATE!) Nice job! I hope to see you on Mars soon, Aubrey!

EDIT: After writing the text below, I went back and tried changing settings myself.
There seems to be an odd limiter on frame rate when not in full screen.
When not in full screen and settings at fastest, I couldn't pass 50fps no matter what.
I was hosting and playing alone, no bots, music off, lowest possible resolution (only one possible actually)
and even the window sized down to a fourth of my screen.
When I went to full screen, I suddenly hit 199fps and it stayed in the 180-199 area as long as I played in full screen. Also the fps were much higher even when playing at "Fantastic"
-------- End of edit--------
 
Hi Zoe,
Solutions have to match problems, so lets first find out what causes the mess.
You can put your computer through the tests at http://www.pcpitstop.com/
If you find nothing abnormal, try the game settings and see if that gives any info.
  1. First lets determine if the problem comes from the game itself, so try both hosting but also try joining games. Hosting should potentially give you lower frame rate as all the other players are connected through you. 
  2. Then try to host a coded game in freestyle, so you are on your own. Try if the different settings change your frame rate. You may experience frame rate changing due to traffic on the game server, so check more than once.
  3. Experiment with bots, add all you can, wait and see if frame rate drops. If not, allow them to drive and shoot. Pump up the RamoSpheres and see if that does anything.
I hope this will help you get your frame rate up.
If not, I am sure Aubrey or some of our more nerdy players will gladly step up to the plate and help a damsel in distress. *Notch- Notch... Wink-wink... Wake up guys and help her out instead of just hiding under the couch*
 
See you soon
 
- Johnny

Johnny;
 
Thanks for all your suggestions!
 
Note: Unity automatically caps "in page" webplayers at around 50 FPS (above which FPS inprovements are practacally imperceptible anyway) , so this is what you were experiencing.

Sadly, I can't connect to any servers on the web player version of 1.9.76, or 1.9.75... Also, on the web player, when ever I open a menu (such as connection settings, or game settings (game settings only effected when I am not server host)), the menu is blank, and I loose control over everything. When it is game settings, all I can control in the "exit server" button, which once I use, everything is back to normal (and I have to rejoin).  I am sure it is a great version, but I am unable to comment on it it's self at the moment. As for game settings, that only happened on 1.9.75, I have no clue if it does in 1.9.76.
 
 
Edit: I tried to start my own server, and it crashed.
 
 
Edit Two: I tried death ray's trick, (open a window of mars explorer,  if the server list does not load, open a new window, then close the other, done) and it is working fine, menus and all.

MacDane, i think part of the problem is all of the junk that my little sister has on her hard drive that she never bothered to clear out after she was done using it. However, thanks for the tips. I'll be sure to try the fullscreen method. 
 
On another non-related note, Mars explorer, any version that can be played in the browser, refuses to load. I tried to play the raptor safari game made with Unity, and it said something about my need to disable Rosetta Emulation. Could this be affecting Mars's lack of loading? If any tech geek out there knows what's going on, info would be appreciated.

Most certainly!
 
Running your browser in Rosetta mode could easily bring Mars Explorer to a crawl or prevent it from loading entirely.
 
To fix this issue, find your browser application (most likely Safari, located in /Applications) in the Finder, click it once, and then press the "Command" and "I" keys on your keyboard.
 
In the "Info" dialog that will appear, uncheck "Open using Rosetta", restart your browser, and you should be good to go.
 
More details Here.

To play inside a Zorb Ball; enable ramospheres on the server, and then type "/z" (for Do Zorb) into the mesaging console text field and press "Enter".

While I do like these new features, I hope that in future versions we will be able to switch them off.  also, still cant get the settings page for the server list/startup page.  
 
PS: Love the new version, but look forward to a operational sea monster.

Flying in Zorb radically changes flight pitch agility, more agility (smaller loops) right side up and less agility upside down (enormous loops) but allows several seconds of otherwise unhindered upside down flying under lava surface! 
Please DON'T "fix"!  WEEEEEEEEEE!
Pic 1 (below) is flying under lava surface upside down @ 133 MPH
Pic 2 (below) is flying out of lava upside down @ 128 MPH

In Browser, using Safari - latest beta version, it only seems to happen on my Mac, not on my Windows machine. It could be the browser (On Windows I use Internet Explorer). This was happening in the previous version also. It is still happening, no servers can be seen, though occasionally one may be up. I believe this happened to others in the previous version also.

Does this keep the menu from disappearing when re-opening it again in the other window, or does it just "bring it back" again so I can click on it and then face-palm myself?

As far as I know (I've never had to use his trick), all of the game should be working in the second window, however; this trick might just have been for when no games show up, I can't really remember. Hopefully, no face-palming will be required.

Aubrey,
 
It seems that anyone who joins a game after I do shows up as not responding on the Mac App. Their messages still show up in the Messaging Console though.
 
EDIT: Its working now though. I think it might have been because I didn't have "Force NAT" on.

It is a great version, and I absolutely love riding around in my zorb ball! THough, every time I try to get on the volcano, I simply end up orbiting around it LOL. Nothing to complain about... Except, a minor issue: Allot of players miss server insanity! Can we please have it back (perhaps as an option, the default of which being "off" (That way, when noobs start servers, they won't know how to get insane physics, and we can feel safe about it (but we, the non-noobs, (I should not say we, I am a noob my self lol) who can use it properly, will still have the option!))).
 
 
Run on sentence, run on! You almost have finished the race, sentence, run on.... YEAH! FIRST PLACE!

Hi Aubrey,
Please consider altering takeoff physics? I know you said driving physics aren't final.
All settings at default>drive>gain speed>deploy wings>press S key/down arrow>nose grind>flip> :(

Opening wings at all tends to cause such things... (on ground)

No, not "only with blend off" !! Besides, who cares?
YES! to making Stall Blend off as a default! I would also like to say that despite having asked Aubrey for so much and gotten even more than was asked for, I would really appreciate the return of some wall collision physics since it's frustrating touching a wall or landing and coming to a total halt from 200 MPH. Just some sense of momentum.

Ok, I think you may be correct there about the WDB, but it never happens at speed with WDB off - for me, at least.

In any case, it's frustrating, yes?
 
BTW, Wing Deploy Blend has been renamed Stall Blend
I agree with you Spiffy that I would prefer it be off as a default.
 
Speaking of wings, the old wingless flying buggy is back. lol Seen it many times lately.

Another idea I asked for a long time ago - instead of only being able to use presets, could we have the option to use a settings system similar to 1.7 - the ability to individually turn things on and off, allowing us our favorite settings, without getting lagged.

I agree. I've really missed being able to have trails on my slower computers.

Andrew,
 
 
How many times have you said that now? Yet you return and create the account "Syn3h," for example, and post things like this. You have not changed, so you will remain under scrutiny and discipline.  Further discussion will continue in PMs–this isn't an appropriate thread for this discussion.
 
 
Eric

Eric, do you have a way with dealing with the spamvertiser who keeps popping up? Always under different aliases, and always for the same thing. Its current username is Alan Park (Stimmy). It bammed this post.
