Track replay not working correctly


Recommended Posts

I'm having an issue where the track replay doesn't accurately replay the mission; for example, I had a two hour mission where I launched from a carrier and when I replayed the track, it show my plane going off the side of the carrier. Note that Tacview track does replay the same mission correctly using the data it collected from the game. Anyone else having this issue? If so, how are you fixing this?

It's suggested that tracks from multi-player works better because the system tracks differently which allows it to be replayed. So if you plan on saving tracks, run the mission in MP instead.

the tracks sometimes completely miss an input. it can happen that you turn 90 degrees left while taxiing and then go full AB - but the track shows you going full AB without that turning first so youll fly into a fence instead of taking off.

 

it just doesnt record some inputs, sometimes. its a bug as old as dcs itself, never resolved. it cannot be reliable reproduced either.

 

my personal advice is to not use tracks at all, except for bug reports. even if this bug doesnt occur, tracks are badly unreliable because they only record your inputs and the rest is independently resimulated, so errors accumulate over time resulting in different results (like getting hit in replay when you dodged the missile originally).

Were you in a 14? I flew a number of missions on the JDF server over the weekend and all the tracks are hopelessly inaccurate! Problem seems to be getting worse, in the past a few would replay ok.

 

 

The hornet tracks are also bugged.

Tracks have been broken for years and years...and years. Some aircraft have slightly better luck than others--especially if the track is short. But, mostly, be prepared for disappointment with the more complex aircraft.

I think I found the issue. When I takeout from an airfield, or start from mid air, the track replay work correctly even when landing on the basic or super carrier; it's only when the F-18 cold starts from a carrier when the track file starts breaking.

 

I haven't tested a track file create from a catapult launch, or a ramp hot start, and will update this post later in the week.

Yea, just confirmed that if I start a mission with the F-18 from either a cold start or from parking ramp hot from any carrier, the track file fails and the F-18 crashes. If I start the mission on the catapult on any carrier then the track file works as intended.

 

 

Is this a known bug because I can't find anyone else reporting this?
