Player swings wildly many times but never makes contact

Postby CC » 24 Mar 2009, 02:53

Manutoo,

This was mentioned in this post:
http://www.managames.com/Forum/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=1854&p=15992&hilit=swinging#p16015 .
The problem has happened some since then, and one of those times was today. Since we can post recordings now, I opened this bug topic for this issue. Below is the recording. The problem occurs at:

-------------
CC 2 40
P.1 1 AD

P.1 hits a drop shot; I am at the net, and I push buttons to hit a lob. This would not have been the best shot, but P.1 was closer to the net when I started the preparation. Anyway, the ball hit the top of the net, and still I was ready and expected to play the point. This is where my player went nuts and swung 4 times in the air while the ball fell to the ground.
-------------

I did not play well this match, but it was the lag that cost me the 2 sets that I lost. I guess that the lag is taken out of the recordings as well as any chat, as the playback is pretty smooth. The lag caused me to be more out of position than typical for me on several shots.

Doh, the replay loses sync many times... :?
I guess there's still something wrong somewhere, but still can't point it out... At least, it gave me the occasion to find a lil bug in the resync system, and now the resync should be almost invincible..! :P (at worst, it needs 2 points to fully recover on big desync, and usually, only 1 point)

And so, I never see this multiple swings in the air.

Also, u can see the Lag in down right when pressing F4 ( = Match Stats).

OK. I don't understand whether you are saying that you can't see the multiple swings that I see when I play the video at the point that I mentioned ~before you made changes~, or that you are saying that you can see it in my video but ~haven't been seeing it outside of this because of the conditions that you mentioned~. Hopefully, you do see it in the playback of my video, as I see it every time that I play it; it would be really odd to me if you can't see it in the replay. :?

Thanks for the clarification. I thought that possibly was what you were saying, but I don't understand why I can see it but you can't. So, a recorded match may play one way on one computer but not on another even if both computers have the same release of TE2009? Possibly you couldn't see it because you had made changes on your system? So, there can be synchronization errors even during playback of a recorded match? I had assumed that they only happened with online matches and that when the recording is made they are stripped.

the replay uses a system similar to the network games ; it helps to have very small replay files, but it needs to have the exact same conditions to work ; if these conditions aren't met, then there are some desync.
