[kovarex] [0.15.13] Slow server = no input on client

Post by zamp »

If a server is running factorio much slower (30-40 ups) clients running at 60 ups no longer handle input and get stuck. Only workaround I found was forcing client to run at 30FPS and it started to handle input again. Multiplayer wait icon flashes non-stop.

Multiplayer UPS shows as 0.0

Interaction via the GUI works fine, like ordering trains around, bots and belts work fine, however mousing over items takes anywhere up to a minute to show the yellow highlight box and the information panel.
Movement is almost impossible since it only gets processed randomly, so you can get stuck running in the same direction until the next time the server feels like accepting an input.

I've run into this heaps of times, very infuriating especially in the middle of combat!

Thanks for the report. I was postponing fixing this bug for a long time (since the 0.15.13), but it wasn't that big of a beast after all.
Fixed for the next release.

We will test this on the April 14th PVP event - think this got us on March 10th. :) Thanks much!
