This WE, my daughter noticed that the Ethernet cable was unplugged from the PC, while I was in a dog fight in HL. I haden't noticed anything, the other planes where flying as usual. No WIFI and mono connection. I'm directly connected to a cable modem.
Any explanation ?

Firstly, what was the condition of your connection bar in the top-right corner of the screen? Did you have the three or four red squares that denote your connection is flaky? If so, I would think that the software was reading the 'predicted' flight patterns of the other aircraft, which it does for a while after it stops getting info from the server. I would guess that your cable had become disconnected shortly before your daughter dicovered it...you would have been about to time out very soon.

Can't think of any other explanation.

Don't remember for the bars, I don't know for how long I did that, I will try it on purpose.
Sounds like a good explanation, I thought that only servers (for ex for banning) had this fonctionnality.

There's only 2 explanations:

1- Your cable was disconnected short before your daughter have discovered it:
The server considered that your ping was too high, but you have reconnected the cable in time to keep you in the game (you are not kicked by the server) http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

I thought I saw the propeller in front of my plane, in fact It is my halo pulling me to the sky !
Anyway I think it was quite for a long time that the PC was unplugged, I will retry.
