This is my first post so go easy :-)
I have been with the game since OFP days and have spent a lot of time learning to script and change things, sounds etc, and love doing it.
I am at the point now (after about 8 years!) that I need to learn the multiplayer aspects because I want to run a dedicated server for me and a few mates, not more than four of us. We have been playin Ghost Recon (the original) for years every Monday night and quite enjoy the sneaking around. Home made Arma missions would be perfect for us.
Anyway back on Topic! I am trying to set up a dedicated server here at home to learn how to do the multiplayer sripting side of things. The problem is, with only me connected things are really jittery at a distance. Things appear smooth close up, but as soon as they are a hundred metres away they jitter something terrible.
This has been blowing my mind as I know Arma will support lots of online players. Right now it's just one it needs to support and it's jittery!!
I have read and read these forums and see this as well as other threads....
But no matter what I do it's still jittery.
I have placed myself and one soldier in the editor and made a MP mission. The soldier is about 150m away from and running from left to right and he jitters. Disappears and appears a metre or so further on constantly.
I cannot understand this.
This is over a wireless LAN with solid 54Mbs connections. None of the other servers I've run have ever given trouble (Ghost Recon, rFactor, BF2 plus others). I didn't have this much trouble many years ago with Apache and Perl :-)
Any ideas would be really appreciated. After all these years and finally ready to do something and play Arma with my mates and I'm really feeling finally beaten! Ready to give up with Arma to be honest!
Have tried the server on two different machines. One Pentium 3.2 Ghz and on a newer AMD Phenom II X4 940 just to see if that made a difference. Same thing on both.
Long winded I know, but I'm frustrated and trying explain.
This is with Arma v1.14 and Arma 1.16 beta.
