I Know better than anyone what pib's netcode issues can do for us in with more than 15 people(ask to geofanatec), In my opinion the race was so stable(comparing with my last year experience). No one will be core error proof until piboso fix the netcode. I repeat, core.exe will be taken as mechanical failure.

I knew for a start you'd have issues with core.exe crashes and live streaming issues with a full race grid(btw, nothing wrong with the track cams guys). In fact I did post advice way before the event that a full grid was asking for instability troubles; the reality is that you got away with it more than you should've on the night, in that many more riders were likely to have had problems not only with core.exe crashes but in just not being able to connect to the server itself - you were very lucky in that sense in yesterdays event, but if I was you I wouldn't bank on being so lucky if you continue with a full grid for the other events in the championship. My advice for what it's worth:Reduce the competitors down to 12 - 18 riders MAX for each race session(hold two race sessions if you want for each event/race), making sure to reset the server before and after each event. This of course doesn't guarantee total stability but will give the best chance for an issue free nights racing. Hold a server stress test for each event(track) with the full grid together with a slot for DD's live stream, as different tracks effect the server stability in different ways. That's not to say it's a track issue but just a quirk of the unstable netcode right now.Listen to what DD is advising you for what he needs to do a quality live stream event. That's his job and he knows best.If you think I'm poking my nose in were it's not wanted then just tell me to mind my own business and stay out of this discussion. I'm easy either way. I tend to be a straight talker much like DD, and like DD, I'm just trying to help, so don't take all this the wrong way guys. We all want you to succeed in this venture, so all due respect to you in co-ordination with BES for putting on these championships. Hawk.

Is that what piboso was doing? fixing all the online stability stuff?Bob, what you talking about mate? Streaming of events has been done in the past very successfully, and DD has now got the quality of the stream running excellently. So to say it's all a "load of bollocks and the live stream is shit anyway" just shows how much attention, or lack of, that you have been paying to the subject.There is no reason live streaming cannot be done very successfully if the event organiser is sensible about the number of competitors that take part in the race, just the same as the stability of the netcode can be good so long as the organiser is sensible about the max number of competitors that take part...... So why all this talk of it all being a load of bollocks? I really don't understand your stance sometimes mate. If you personally don't care about live streaming then fine, but others do care about it. Also bear in mind that live streaming is or will certainly be a massive promotional tool for GPB in the future, and that's a fact and can only be a good thing for all the GPB community. In answer to your question: Yes Piboso is now fully concentrating on fixing the netcode instability issues(or was until his recent health issues. He's taking time out right now to get well)..... Were have you been this last month or so that you didn't know that? LOL! Hawk.
Quote from: doubledragoncc on November 15, 2016, 09:47:59 am@paco............P.S: Hoe many riders got a core in last race? Could you tell me please? 3 of 20?I think you will find over half the guys got cores, I had 2 and so did others I think. Point is that in reality 15 is the max for a good amount of riders with good stability. Test need to be done now I have finished uploading vids to YT lol. My servers were down due to it on Monday and the CUP server got killed by it sorry guys but it is part of my living.DD

That's the trouble with typing lol.Although... What this thread is turning into now, is a good example of what im saying lol I LIKE the streaming and all that stuff.. The problem is GPB... i have been following and i read about the decisions on netcode etc etc So i don't understand why every race needs to be hyped up so much at the moment, that's all always ends up with somebody being pissed off for whatever reason lol I agree with Warlocks post too!
