LOOK HERE if you have "Connection to Host" probs

43 posts in this topic

EDIT:

The new patch includes "Fixed a cause of some warping/lost packets", which may also be the source of people losing connection during loading. Please update this thread after you patch and the server is back up.

--------------

The new campaign is starting today, but there is no word if anything is being patched server side (or client side).

I just got off the phone with the production staff and it has been decided to reset the servers for campaign 21. This reset will happen around lunch rat time today (6-25-05)...Server down time should be no more than an hour if all goes as planned.

If you still have connection issues when the server comes up, fill out a ticket at http://support.playnet.com

The more people they know are having the problem, the better. They may also need to compare the different setups that everyone is using.

Although, Ahwulf says that it may be related to CRS's ISP and your location, which wouldn't be fixed by anything they do on the game server:

I talked with Cogent's help desk and got the following response. Cogent is the rats network provider.

We had an outage in Chicago earlier in the evening due to some electrical fires. This caused our ATT peer to drop at that location thus shifting traffic to Dallas

This basically overwhelmed the routers between ATT and the Dallas Cogent and made a lot of people's connections go belly up.

Hopefully its better today...

In network circles this is known as "bad weather".

Well, I had it yesterday after using "video RAM".

Switching back to "system RAM" made it go away.

Might be not working for all, but giving it a try doesnt hurt.

Nope, same problem. I have probably spent 10 hours since the 1.19 release fudging around with various tcp settings on both my router and my desktop to no avail :( About all I've been able to do is extend the amount of time before disconnect from 30 seconds to 5 minutes.

I tryed some of the suggested fixes but nothing really works.

It cant be my ISP or my settings. My location is in Vancouver BC.

I just had my first problem like that since 1.19 (but I barely played in the last few days). To be honest, I used to autodespawn quite often even with previous versions (ISP issue) so I don't know if that's game related or not.

BUT I got this error message when CTDing, and that was a first time (sorry it's in french):

That 2nd to the last hop never responds to pings. What you're seeing is normal. The authentication server also never reponds to pings. It only looks at port 27015. I'm not sure what the 2nd to last hop to the ns1.playnet.com address looks at (port wise).

Game freezes, goes to 1 frame per minute, after a few minutes of slide show and scrambled or dissappearing graphics, game crashes to desktop and gives a connection error.

Been like this ever since the last patch, not 1.19 but the fix just after. I played beta with no problems.

It sounds like they dont plan to do anything about this, so I guess maybe I wont do anything about it either...

FYI i did finally figure out how to update my drivers (i r smart now)

and logged in a few times and the connection issues persist but i had time to notice it might be related to the AI. i logged in at an msp in ciney and crawled into town, town was packed and no lag woo-hoo and as soon as i seen someone report ai was back up i lost connection. so i logged in elsewhere on a defense mission and no problems at all till someone did a suicide run in a 232 and the AI fired at him, it might be a coincidence but i will check it out a little more in the morning. just figured i would post my theory and see if anyone else notices or if i just have an overactive imagination.

I experience a new "feature" lately :

(since 1.19 is in the main server didnt got it on the test server)

I got random disconnections from the game all the time !

Is it my client or a known server issue?

I haven't been able to log onto host for almost two days. Saturday, after numerous tries, I got into the game. Yesterday, I tired numerous times and couldn't get in. I also filled out one of them work order tickets. I haven't tried messing around with the settings. No clue and afraid of doing more harm than good.

after checking a little better today it looks like it was coincidence and nothing at all to do with ai, i spawned in at few fb's and the problems seem totaly random except for the fact that it doesn't happen when in zero population area's. anymore than 3 or 4 people and i can't make it for more than 3 minutes.
