[Info] Packetloss
« on: August 15, 2013, 15:37 »
What are packets?
Explanation:

Packets, are bytes of data sent between you and the server. Each update, callback, command and function is executed more quicker with less packetloss. Think about it like a letter

What is packetloss
Explanation:

Packtloss (remember "Letter" i mentioned?) think of each "byte" of data (or letter) is sent to you bit by bit. Then, somewhere along the line. A bit of the "Letter" is lost. Thus, making you Desynced. Nothings sent properly, you experience chat lag, people appearing to teleport, false smokey bans(bad!).

Good things about a desync?

It gives smokey a reason to wanna bit your ass.

Bad things about a desync?

As mentioned. It gives smokey a reason to bit your ass, because you aren't in sync with the server. Thus, making admins have to stop what they're doing to make sure if it is/isnt a false ban or not. If you check /mypacketloss. I reccomend a relog, purely because:

A: Admins have more important things to do.
B: You dont want to get banned?
C: Im sick of seeing the typical "Lagggggggg" in chat.

TL:DR?

Well short version,

packets == data.

packetloss == dataloss

data== data sent/recieved between client and server.

returns? missed/duplicate/bytes resent.

Hopefully this has explained it a bit more, and please stop stating the obvious. we know there's lag, and micks working to stop the lag. :)

Want more explaining? post + ill explain it.


Tips:

command: mypacketloss

returns: green == good. Red == bad.

#define red RELOG
#define green SORT_NETWORK
