Unnecessary game chatbox spam makes bc2 laggy

Unnecessary game chatbox spam makes bc2 laggy

Postby Viki » Mon Jul 11, 2011 3:02 pm

Ok, here is the situation: BC2 chatbox is buggy, and starts to lag game for some computers once enough text is written there.
And in servers like "-lFGl- ll GER ll 24/7 ll 10sec Vehicle Respawn" where one round can last one hour or even more - lags can get pretty annoying after half of the round. And i know that I'm not the only one who is annoyed by this problem.

Stuff that contributes to the chatbox flooding the most are "Killstreak messages" and "Buggy google translate".

Dunno how good google translate is in other languages, but to my native language google translate is VERY BAD (never saw a phrase in game which was translated good enough to understand what player said.), and it also contributes to unnecessary chat-box flood.
Kill-streak messages also contribute to the problem, but I guess there are people out there who like them.

So what I'm asking/suggesting for starters - that maybe google translate is not needed here and could be turned off?


P.s. It probably won't be good enough, because kill-streaks spam even more, but still that would be better than nothing (but even killstreak messages in the future can be adjusted to be spammed less (unless it's hardcoded :/)).

Hi Viki,

that is a really good suggestion! I think most of us find the google translater quite annoying, but I didn't know that it contributes to lags also. Whether or not thats the case, I would find less messages in any case better, because the chat is the only way to communicate (and sometimes even coordinate) with other player.

Great suggestion +1 from me.

The Google translater part is being discussed by our members and most likely will be disabled. Not sure about kill-streaks though.

Isn't it possible to simply reduce the number of kill streak messages, say: 5, 10, 20....?

Just played a round.
Notable performance increase! While it's still not perfect, it's still much better than it was before!

P.s. About kill streak messages - while messages about 5 kill streak are removed. There are still messages when someone breaks 5-6 kill streak. (Food for thought: Removing these messages to might be just enough too fully eliminate chat-box lag).

Well for me personally 5 kill-streaks are very easy to get.
Now about 7 kill streaks. pretty much depends from luck, sometimes I only get 0-1 times per round, sometimes 5 or even more.
Real challenge for me starts around 8 kill-streak.

So I suggest that they would start either within 7 or 8 kill-streaks.

Either way it's not gonna be easy to find a perfect balance for the chat-box lag, when rounds are that long.

daaamn the improvement in performance is waay better for me too.

And u actually have time to see what people writes before its spammed away =)

About killing spree:
Yeah I think 10 is good number to start at. Then it wont accur so often and it will feel a bit nicer to get it too XD

cheers!

Well, played one more round:
Looks like kill-streak breaker messages are gone. And kill streak messages are pretty rare. But what do you want, reaching 8 kill-streak needs skill, not luck.

But in the end, BC2 chat-box wasn't flooded and game was lag free the entire round! And i'm happy with these changes!
