Glitches
« on: April 15, 2013, 09:06:43 am »
I'm not sure if this is the right place to say this, but is it me or are not only ranks down (probably GM) but I wondered because tails are also not working, nor are sounds, so I thought that maybe it's server side.

Also, I thought a general glitch report thread might be useful for map/props etc.

Edit - Also, trails don't seem to have persistence across map changes either. Again, not sure if it's just me or....

All that can happen when the database connection gets lost. Which seems to happen surprisingly often on the prophunt server and not other servers. :/

So is it just a problem with the gamemode then? Or is something wrong with the server itself?
I am totally the prettiest girl on the Prop Hunt server.

I theorize that it happens on the prophunt server because there's a deeper bug with sourcemod's database interface. The GM site has a tendency to disappear quite a bit, so that database connection can fail often. The bug would be that SM causes the connection to our database to fail because of it.

Just a quick one I've noticed recently, I'm not sure if it is happening to other people or not, but when I jump and/or crouch jump (not every time, but very frequently) the camera decides to glitch out and/or teleport my prop just slightly out of sync so I end up doing things like missing jumps or not moving smoothly. Could this be a problem with the server?

That's a recent change affecting all of TF2. I'm not particularly happy about it either.

Not sure if it's client/server side or if it's cause by the TF2 update but some of the game sounds cut off like 'I am the one and onl-', 'Mission begins in 10 sec-' etc.
Thought it might have been worth reporting regardless.

That may have been something I did. I've made some more changes to how sounds are played, so let me know if it's still happening.

I've just got off from playing and they seemed fine now, i'll play some more later to double check.

Alright I've made another change to attempt to prevent that.

Just changed maps and i think the reset took effect though the one and only still cut off.
Is it coincidental that it happened when i switched weapons as scout?

Hmm, I don't see a pull request or anything on the AM Prop Hunt thread.  Mind sharing these changes with the rest of us?

(In case you're wondering how I knew you changed something, it's because I saw the version change for your server in my favs list)

The changes aren't terribly interesting, just to play announcer sounds on a non-voice sound channel so that VO pitch shifting (done by a seperate plugin) doesn't affect them.
