I am getting a similar error with the same DLL to on several servers. I've done the process of elimination and it crashes, even in vanilla when I just open arma3server.exe.

We are experiencing these issues too. The desync and rubberbanding just slowly creeps up on you and eventually kills the server.

Ligthert added a comment to T69236: Some building positions are buggy.

I have the same problem.

createVehicle doesn't seem to respect building positions. They are fine for the player, but once you start createVehicle'ing stuff like spheres and ammo crates, it just scatters the object around of the building instead of inside it.

I've included a demo: buildingPos.Stratis.zip (SP).

Approach a building and radio-trigger 001 to see al sorts of red dots appear near the house, but never in the house.

002 to start of and then repeat 003 to go through the house positions. For the player it works fine. But once you start using inanimate objects it just fails. :-(

Ligthert added a comment to T69236: Some building positions are buggy.

What does work is:

  1. create the object
  2. setpos the object

Create an ammobox called ammoBox.
Create a trigger with in OnAct: ammobox setPos ((nearestBuilding player) buildingPos 3)

This works fine.

Please use an identifiable User-Agent for A3 downloads via HTTP. As a sysadmin of http-servers this would give me more flexibility on how to treat such requests. For example, limiting bandwidth, redirecting downloads to the cloud etc etc.

Ligthert added a comment to T64810: get objects/entities in a square area.

The issue I have with these functions is that if you use this in a square you will miss what is in the corners. But if you make the search radius bigger, say 1.41421356237309504880 so that it covers the corners, you get a bunch of extra objects you don't need/want due to the expansion of the search radius.

Ligthert added a comment to T59083: Low CPU/GPU Utilization.

The issues described are similar to those in ArmA2. I doubt that fixing this isn't simply a case of optimizations, but more a partial redesign and rewrite of the software architecture.

I don't have access to the source-code, and if I was I wouldn't be able to point out what exactly is wrong. From a sys-admins/mission designer point of view, the biggest drawback I've experienced so far is engine related.

With the limited man-power and resources BIs has and cosmetics being done I don't expect something major soon.

Ligthert added a comment to T58496: Drastic server FPS drop after 15-20 minutes on custom missions.

Semi.

Last night I pitted twenty to thirty players against about three-hundred AI offloaded to a headless client. Nearing the end after approx 1-1.5 hour with only 20 enemy infantry left the server FPS dipped into a single-digit number.

The Deathmatch that followed was sparsely visited, so I can't really tell whether this issue is still valid.

Somehow 15-20 players with simple scenarios seem to be a tipping point concerning server FPS. Even with a low playercount the server FPS just seem to decline after a long (hour+) enough time into the single digits.

Ligthert added a comment to T58496: Drastic server FPS drop after 15-20 minutes on custom missions.

I am talking about the server FPS. The stuff you see when you type #monitor on a dedicated server.

I thought it was one of the server sided scripts, but this isn't the case. There is a scripts that checks if a player has a score of 100 and checks this every 2 seconds. Thinking this was heavy, I added an additional delay having it check every 20 seconds. But still the server FPS drops below 10-15 after a few minutes when 40 players join the server.

The modified version is available here: http://delta.tangodown.nl/A3/
