Frozen players harder to move

Post by Zealot »

A few of us have noticed frozen players are harder to move around with shotgun and rl. What changed? Now it's harder to breakup tight groupings of frozen enemies and also harder to thaw multiple friendlies at once.

I don't know but at least I know that I changed nothing (this weekend I've been working mostly on the adminless.ovh machine, i.e. here, balancing, updating and deploying some services, in few words, stuff that is not even remotely related with UnFreeZe) so I guess that it will be just some random variable/stack corruption or some stuff like that therefor I don't expect that to last much longer, the daily automated maintenance should have took care of that I believe. anyways let me know if the problem persists.

Also notice frozen players are a bit more sticky and it occurred once for a teammate to get stuck between two frozen enemies and it took a bit of work to get him out.

Oddly this still occurs time to time , where you can't move anyone frozen but then it resets , as for getting stuck you need to walk round walls not through them lol

I know, I remember last time I worked on some server code I let it to run for more than 48 hours straight with 64 bots looking for this issue and this didn't even happen once. in addition in the several hundred of hours I played/tested this never happened to me either so unfortunately under those circumstances there's no much I can do about it. anyways, that being said, I know this still happens from "time to time" and I understand that every time this takes place is heartbreaking but well it's really something like once a month or so and even so probably it doesn't happen for more than a couple of shots. not trying to underestimate this with that but overall looks like a minor issue probably not worth ("cost"/risk wise) digging any further.
