    I’m playing S3D 41.3 now, and a strange thing happens couple rounds ago.

    Sabi killed me, confirmed by the log & the score board, but at the next move i still can shoot and my tank floats in the air. after a couple of moves, my tank just dissapeared. I don’t know how to tell this perhaps the client log will do better.

    they way things played out very weird

    sabi rolled kowal and got the kill

    the hole under kowal is from the nuke of him dying

    then kowal reapeared in the same spot above the hole with full life and was still able to shoot

    derrick dug kowal who fell into the nuke hole

    kowal was then put back to the original place above the hole

    2 shots later kowal just disapeared off the screen as if he resigned

    sabi was deducted 1 kill

    this was uk server time 13:50

    Hmm looks like an old bug has resurfaced.

    Well, you’re not alone Kowal. This has happened to me also once in 41.1 and then again more recently in 4.3. The time it happened recently I was killed, and then next shot I the 2 huds at the bottom came up, but all the data was blank in the one that normally shows Angle, Power and Rotation, and I wasn’t able to actually do anything that turn. On the second turn though my tank reappeared and I was able to shoot again.

    It seems like a fairly rare bug, which no doubt will make it more difficult to test and fix. I kind of like it though, it adds sort of a bit of uncertainty into the game 😉

    Has no one seen the larger part of all this? He uses Opera!

    It is odd to have this bug come back to life, have we seen any patterns with it?

    The clients and the server all simulate all of the actions seperately. In the case the a client simulates something differently from the server the client will show one thing and the server will be telling it another.

    eg the client thinks there was an explosion the server doesn’t ,so the server thinks the tank is on the ground the client doesnt.

    There is test code in the game for this situation and I thought we had all of the possibilities ironed out. Apparently now.
