Hi!

I've a question for you who play a lot online!
Tonight I've played on Virtualpilots_2, a very amusing finnish server that just has planes from the prewar era. So far so good. My ping on this server is very low, seldom more than 50. Then, after having played a few minutes, aprox. 5 minutes, one yellow and 4 red squares appear on the upper right corner of the screen, a little right to where my connection-indicator is. My ping is still very low, usually 43-44.At this point or a few seconds later, all other planes disappear, and I'm flying alone in the virtual sky! Not satisfaying for a man on the prowl! A minute or so later, i get kicked from the server with the message "Contact with remote host lost. Player kicked" or something like that. I've allready been kicked from my job for a month now, I can't take much more kicking! Besides, Its cowardice to kick someone that wears glasses!


Is it something i can do to prevent beeing kicked from this server?

Is it just on this particular server or is it all of them that you try?

If you have not already download the new mg_snd.dll file.(I think it is available in the customer support section)This fixes the time out bug.

It could possible be due to a bad connection with one of the network routers between you and the host. If a router (hop) is dropping packets or has an abnormal high ping, then it could cause you to lag and get kicked by the host.

You can test the network route to the host with the TRACERT command.

To do this, open the command console: START > RUN > type CMD > ENTER

At the prompt, type: TRACERT 62.236.255.203
(this is the ip for virtualpilots2 server)

It will then show you the routers and ping times for each during the path it takes to the host. If one times out or has a high ping, then there is a problem with that router and you have an unstable connection to the host, which is out of your control.

For example, here is my tracert to virtualpilots:

C:\Documents and Settings\WeatherMan&gt;tracert 62.236.255.203

This shows a good connection with the ping times getting higher once I hit Europe. A previous trace showed one packet being dropped at hop 16, denoted by an asterick * as a ping time. It took about 2 seconds to recover and continue--which would have caused me to lag on the server. Any longer period to recover would have been enough to get kicked by the host.

This can explain why people with low pings can sometimes get the Cheating Detected message and/or get kicked. Especially if it only happens on a specific host server. It's a network packet loss problem. Something to look at anyway. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
