  1. In Topic: ranking system ?

    07 February 2020 - 09:30 AM

    As mentioned on the list of things to talk about.


    Unreal 4 is modular in design and a lot of player services are already available via Steam that are accessible through the UE4 plug in system. UE4 is Star Trek technology. ;)

    You could say that ranking is already done and to be talked about is how to wire UrT5 into what is already there with out having to reinvent the wheel.
  2. In Topic: Hit Detection Explained

    I hope a dev can chime in and explain to you why you should STFU about snaps.

    Well the easy explanation is net code is voodoo magic that does not follow any form of logic based on common sense of what is usually seen as being a result with out taking into consideration a long list of variables that can not be calculated or understood with out a large sampling under controlled conditions.

    Common sense says that by changing the number of snaps then network play and ping should improve but taking into consideration we are talking about net code that is over 20 years old, based on dial up at the time, the end result would be difficult to predict as to the actual output as a variable as to the desired value as a sum total, based on dial up. What might be an improvement to one would be a fail to another.

    The bottom line though is to improve "personal" performance is to understanding what is occurring during practical game play that "everyone" plays under and changing tactics to accommodate the variables that would change the result as a percentage. Not to say it's not worth a try and we have done so with mixed result as expected.

    I'm actually thinking of doing a blog post as to relevance of the different variables, with the help of the coding team, with more of a view of how they can be used to improve personal performance with out having to adjust the ways and means if anyone is interested.

    Just to mention.

    The word use "Hit Detection" means a few different things to different people and as to the original post is explained with in "context" in which it is used but for the most part is a condition/state change that with in context when the trigger is pressed the "hit" is actually calculated which only occurred 85% of the time in 4.1 ;)

    To stop typing as I mentioned before the net code does not need to be "patched" but replaced but is a project I doubt FS would be willing to take on.

    Well, that's what I do not understand. The only explanation for this mindset that makes any sense to me, is being afraid of increased criticism, and if so, would mean

    Naw we know when fans are being fans.

    I do behind the scene videos and I can at least tell you the hard part is find things that someone would be interested in seeing or hearing and when someone asks to see something as part of the work in progress or asks a direct question it makes things easier.

    4.X is different in that no one around here is really interested in getting involved with the nuts and bolts as the problems of working on what is still a mod
  5. In Topic: What are the ambitions for Resurgence ?

    i can relate to the frustration caused by the contradictory sitution (public image vs. actual circumstances).

    Understandable as who is FrozenSand has never been defined except for the history of starting out as a Mod under Q3 and the fact that developers of the game don't make for very good resources of what is actually going on based on areas of responsibility.

    A lot of times it's guessing what kind of information is being asked as a question asked of the content team as the question would be a different answer relative to the coding team

    To attempt to solve the problem we are planning on adding Community Managers
