People keep complaining about the alt-f4 problem. How would you or the dev's ever be able to really measure it out completely? Do you want to ban everyone who disconnects from the game, combat situation or not? no! Do you want to ban everybody who looses connection on servers? no! There is no real way of dealing with it i guess, only if there is a way to put a spawn and disconnect timer, e-basta!

Loosing connection can be sorted out/ distinguished from abnormal aborts. I dont propose banning somebody. I propose disabling ALT-F4 and even better leaving the char of an abnormal aborted player ingame for a minute. Yes there will be some as stated above, that will have more unconveniances with unstable power supply or sth. like that but those cases should be really really really rare. I don't see why the game should cater those players that have local problems with their PC or their current supply or whatever for the sacrifce that the majority of players suffer from dc oponents.

Question: I apologize if this has already been addressed but, there are often problems with people being stuck at loading screens and on character creation, waiting for host and so forth. If one has to manually exit the DayZ mod while they are stuck on this screen ( so for example, ending the programme via task manager) will this be counted towards that individuals "hive reputation" and contribute, somewhat as an "alt+f4" if you will?

Cheers.

The respawn button is not used as intended if you respawn

  • because you don't like the location
  • to get closer to your team, your tent(s) or anything else
In both cases: Be a man, deal with it. Run to the location desired and if that takes you an hour to get there... it is part of the game and it is not realistic to teleport from one respawn point to the other.

Yeah, man. Fuck the idea of actually having a fun zombie simulator! Let's make it incredibly unpractical to play this mod just so more and more people will quit playing! Fucking incredible idea, man!

And this can be done as well or additionally to disabling ALT-F4.


if you die, you die clientside. keeping the player modell ingame after pulling the cable won't do much because the server won't receive the kill message.

if it wasn't for that, DCing would have been fixed long ago.

Keep plugging away Rocket, good work on building the mod so far. Stick to where you're going with this mate. I'd put this up there with how much enjoyment I've gotten out of mission building using ACE mod, and the first time I tried the CWC demo YEARS ago, lol.



Figured this topic could do with a bit more + too.

Or 10 seconds standing, screaming, waving hands around like a madman and dancing a fucking Russian polka.

Come on, 5 seconds is great and I'm sure it's going to help immenselly. After that it can always be tweaked.

Five seconds is plenty. When you see somebody sitting down after just being shot you immediately know on the spot that they're disconnecting. If you can't kill them in 5 seconds of them purely being 100% defenseless, you probably wouldn't of killed them if they were moving and running away.

I believe the main reason for the 5 second timer is because any longer than that and it creates performance issues.

It is a military simulation with scope on survival. Zombies are in as well. It is not a fun zombie simulator. I like it the hard way, if you dont... perhaps you will like War Z, which really is intended to be some kind of "fun zombie simulator".
