Thyranim posted a topic in Bug ReportsHi everyone! We've been playing PZ previously a long time and also used the dedicated server on my machine (Win 7, batch-file as steam-variant). Everything was working fine, friends were able to connect by ip-address, everything went very smooth. A few weeks (or months?) later we are back at PZ and I wanted to make a server again, this time outside my own home (hosting server, Ubuntu). But we weren't able to make a successful connection between any client and the server. At first it was the firewall, of course. Then there was a difficulty with the ip-address, because the server has 2 of them and there is no option to tell the game, which one to use (or at least I can't find any). But now, all those problems are out of the way and still it's not possible to connect. To be more precise: The clients are getting the error, that's not possible to make a p2p-connection. Looking on the server via netstat, I can see everyone trying to connect, and I also see the reason, why the server is unable to send a reply, but I can't get the source and solution for this. As said when I'm looking via netstat for those incoming connections by the client, I can see that the client is sending the internal lan-ip instead of the public one. Of course, the server, residing in the internet, is unable to reply to any internal ips and so the message pops up, that's not possible to make a p2p-connection. When starting the client in the non-steam-variant (by using the parameter -nosteam), but letting the server be as before, it's not even getting this far and only telling "server does not respond". Running both, server and client with "-nosteam" it works just fine! But I guess it should also work without those launch parameters, also as the client is telling, that it should be possible to connecto to a non-steam server with a steam-client As multiple users have the same problem and showing the same characteristics when trying to connect, we can tell that it's not a problem on the local lan site or everyones routersettings. Any ideas how to fix this?
EDIT: Found fix for this issue! My friend turned off 'Double size textures' option, we restarted the game and when we entered the server he could see snow on ground as well Hi, I am hosting a P2P server for my friend and I (version 40.43). When it snows we both see snow falling and trees being covered in it BUT only I can see the snow covering the ground, he can't. For him the ground looks normal. Could it be because of a certain setting, or is this a bug? He has tried disconnecting and connecting back again. We even tried restarting the server and turning Post-processing on and off. Still nothing. Also, when we are indoors we can see the rain/snow falling outside even though we're not watching trough the windows at that time. It feels like we're on a spaceship, flying trough the stars, kinda messes up with our eyesight, making us dizzy.
Enabling Normal/Hardcore reloading causes XP gain for reloading pistols to occur when inserting the magazine. Additionally, the magazine can be ejected/inserted repeatedly for continued XP gain without using any ammo. Despite this, XP gain appears to only be 0.33 per eject/insert cycle which is laughable. If the pistol were to be used realistically (let's assume you average half a clip before reloading) you would have fired 1710 rounds before finishing THE FIRST LEVEL. (And this is with Fast Learner) This is especially problematic as the "Reload" keybinding only ejects/inserts the magazine, making it extremely cumbersome to try to maximize XP gain without making use of what is clearly an exploit. Additionally, the fact that Hardcore in particular drastically increases the reload time for a pistol just makes the reloading skill that much more important when compared to the easier difficulties. An Easy difficulty player can trivially reload after each shot, allowing them to gain reloading XP when it is not really needed, while a Hardcore difficulty player can not. Using a shotgun should not be 7-15 times more efficient for training reloading, and players using pistols with Reload Difficulty set to Hardcore should not feel like they have to engage in meta behavior in order to raise their reloading skill.
