What happens to commands you issue while server is down?
Post by iconPost by BooBill | 2020-11-15 | 01:44:33

So, once again the game clock is stuck at 00:05UTC.

Any guesses what happens to commands you issue while it's down? If it comes back up before you log out (or time out) I'm pretty sure it receives the backlog and executes them. However, what if you go to bed and it times out before the server comes back online?

I'm not talking about program moves. We know those can get lost even if the server is up. I'm talking about a new command, like change of bearing or twa?

Very interesting question. Copying my response from the other thread to continue discussion here:

VRDashboard displays the server response. If you see a 'command' line in the Race Log, the command was received by the server.

I don't know about the second part of your question. They might fast-forward the simulation, executing any commands, or resume simulation using the new time and the old position, discarding the commands. The race log should tell us, but I didn't check it last time.

Last time my boat seemed to advance to where it should be. Don't think I had any prog points in that period though - I did issue commands - I had about 10 in my logbook before it started calculating again of me trying to set a heading not twa! Wasn't a major difference so can't say if they applied.

Comme vous l'avez remarqué, nous rencontrons des problèmes techniques avec nos serveurs. Il est conçu pour compenser les itérations manquées pendant ce type de temps d'arrêt, cela peut sembler dérangeant sur l'interface, mais toutes les informations et tous les programmes sont en sécurité. nous examinons le problème et espérons bientôt être de nouveau en ligne ... merci pour votre patience et désolé pour tout inconvénient.

As you have noticed, we are experiencing some technical problems with our servers. It's designed to make up for missed iterations during this type of down time, this can look troubling on the interface but all information & progs are safe. we are looking into the problem and soon hope to be back online... thanks for your patience, and sorry for any inconvenience..

Mon bateau semble toujours avancé.
La position (coordonnées) serait celle donnée sur le mode 3D. Par contre je ne sais pas trop quelle route il suit, et comme j'ai passé plusieurs fois des commandes.....
En ce qui concerne le dashboard j'ai également un problème avec lui. Je n'ai aucune trace de commandes passées, il se déconnecte, il ne trouve plus mon bateau ni la course. Nuit de m.... à oublier !!!

My boat still seems to be moving forward.
The position (coordinates) would be that given in 3D mode. On the other hand, I don't really know which route it is taking, and since I have placed orders several times .....
Regarding the dashboard I also have a problem with it. I have no record of past orders, he disconnects, he can no longer find my boat or the race. Night of s... to forget !!!

Tu as deux positions:
Dernier calcul: 01:25
Simulation: à l'heure actuelle, selon la positions du dernier calcul et les vents anciens.

Mais on peut faire rien.
