Improved stability and dedicated server - Discussion


Recommended Posts

I don't recall the word promised being used, but currently, work is ongoing, whether it makes it out is all dependant on how it tests.

 

Hello Sir, just dropped by to check how's this thing progressing; are there any major roadblocks found already which my put autumn's release of dedicated server on risk?

Be aware of the last OB build MP Stability: Build 2.5.3.24436

While we're all waiting the dedicated server, we're currently moved our server from stable release to the OB to make some test.

 

With the last OB build, for us the stability is completely compromised!

Same Missione, same hardware, same clients connected, unable to play at all.

 

Server crash several times, sometimes just after 20 mins after restart. Details in spoiler!

After all works done trying to make a good server for everyone, the last thing that I was waiting is to read that you're giving the dedicated server build only to one community.

 

Really disappointed about that. I hope you're going to release the dedicated build for everyone soon.

You would also be disappointed if we gave it to everyone and it caused major problems, this is the best way to start rolling it out.

:thumbup: Hi All, just a note

I logged on BS tonight when I got home from work, and had to say, I saw a big improvement! loading times were much better(for me ). no stutters or lag for the 1/2 hr. I was on. There were about 10-15 people on at that point. the most notable improvement was loading times and less lag and stutters, that's just me, your mileage may vary....:thumbup:

Unfortunately I can't try the burning-skies server as player, I don't have any of the aircrafts in the mission slots.

 

I'll wait that the ED expand the rolling out to a "modern war" server as well.

I'm pretty sure it's a windows executable, somewhere here NineLine confirm the first release will be windows only.

 

EDIT => Found here: https://forums.eagle.ru/showpost.php?p=3565661&postcount=200

 

Initially it wont be, but perhaps as it develops more options will be available. Has to be done in steps.

While I really cannot wait till puting the dedicated at my team's server and I usually don't like the way ED is handling such milestones, in this case I can say good move.

 

Test it well, extend dedi beta server users one by one and release once ready for production deployment. Good thing is that it looks the momentum is kept and dedi shall be open for public soon.

 

Nineline I belive the business model with dedicated is know already at ED, I think it would be good time to communicate how it will look. Most important question is, how the licensing will work - shall the maps be purchased for servers or it will not be required?

 

Please do not make a secret out of this anymore, we'd like to know if buying additional maps for server accout makes still sense.

Pretty sure the server is still windows based but if they manage to remove all rendering from the server then it may be possible to run the server on Linux using some Windows core tools. At least that is a project I will start to check out as soon as the server is released. :joystick:

Blueflag server has been running on the dedicated server for a while.

 

 

Testing - Dedicated Server Tools from ED!

As some of you have guessed - we've been testing the dedicated server for a while now - as shown by a great improvement in performance and stability on both scenarios. As a disclaimer, the dedicated server tools from ED are currently under heavy development and heavy testing - so don't judge the final product by what you see here! BlueFlag is very heavy on units and scripting so we're testing to see what problems that causes and stress testing until it breaks. As our first major public test (we have been testing in secret up till now - and under NDA) - we're going to run the BlueFlag mission with NO Scripts - to test one aspect of the dedicated server tools. We'll run on Caucasus and publish more details tomorrow (Sunday). The idea will be to get as many players as possible in - flying around and causing havoc - we'll then review the logs and submit to ED if there are any issues We'll publish what slots working for each side so you'll know where you can spawn. There will be no capture, CTLD or lives restrictions. Only thing off limits is nukes. Anyone caught using one will be banned permanently from BlueFlag for life. The mission will just be the Caucasus map and slots. SRS will be working as usual - but mission progress will not be saved. Please help us test and know that you're helping to make DCS great! As always - thanks for your patience and support! Also - A huge thank you to ED for reaching out and letting us help test and improve DCS. It's an exciting time! BuddySpike Team

Guys, think of it as an open beta kind of a strategy; updates are released one at a time and never to the release version right away. Same thing with the dedicated servers, I guess. Let them be tested well for ED to gather more information accordingly, before the whole multiplayer community receives the dedicated servers. That's how you do it properly, I'd say.

Nice. Is it now possible to host missions with (more and) moving ground units on a server with more than 15(?) clients ?

I spent 30 minutes on burning skies on the weekend.

40 players were on the server.

 

It was smooth as silk . . no stutter. no lag.

I am almost prepared to say it was better than single player, performance wise!

 

So, ED have got something very, very nice up their sleeve here. This will be a boon to DCS multiplayer.

This was my experience also! and this is just the beginning, smooth as silk, the connect and disconnect lags seem fixed also...

Agree totally, I'm in the same boat as you having just returned after a sabbatical and do remember the conversations around a dedicated server version. The situation does appear to have improved somewhat since those days in terms of stability but.... being able to run a server headless remotely would open up more game server solutions such as cheap hosted solutions...

Quick question, dunno if this has been answered.

 

Will this dedicated server need purchased terrain modules? It doesn't make much sense I have to buy two sceneries, one to fly another for a server right now.

More than any other thing that pertains to the body it partakes of the nature of the divine." — Plato, Phaedrus.

Not yet addressed this topic, I think the main "problem" is related to the "old" server admins who have already bought in the past the maps for their server account. It will be a "delicate" subject to deal with.

 

For sure removing map license for server, combined with a dedicated executable that require less expensive machine, can helps to see the servers list growing up, but we can't be sure that it's equal to have more "quality" multiplayer in DCS.

 

We will see what are going to happen! :thumbup:
