WAN gameplay glitch on Android

WAN gameplay glitch on Android

Postby eltomito » 07 Dec 2018, 23:42

Hi! Just played online for the first time ever, lost all 4 races, but it was fun and mostly worked great!

I just noticed that whenever I picked up an item, it mutated into something else before I managed to use it.
For example, I picked up a gift box and there was chewing gum in it. But within a second, it turned into, let's say, a speed arrow,
as if the computer changed its mind. And it happened ALWAYS when I picked up a gift box.

I played STK Beta (obviously) on Android, the phone is Xiaomi Redmi Note 2.

But great work with the network races, guys! Kudos and all that stuff!

I'll try to compile network STK on my laptop and kick some butt on the tracks :D

I think maybe there is some bug or some platform-specific difference which makes Android build generates different random numbers from the server.

@eltomito You can try Windows nightly build made by me here https://ci.appveyor.com/project/acmepjz ... /artifacts :)

Eh, no, I was using the older build. Just updated now. The server was one of those that STK automatically finds for you.

Thanks! but I have Ubuntu. I'll try to look for some Linux nightly builds, tho.

@acme_pjz Maybe you could submit a PR to the main repo to have the appveyor builds stored as artifacts? If you do, make sure to use the whole stk-code folder intact, as it may be needed for debugging.
Not an official dev, but a huge fan of STK!

I'll try to do that, first I need to understand the appveyor build script on stk-code repository since my script looks a little bit different from it.

Also there are some questions I need to clearify:

  • If there is debugging support in the binary package, then the source code and .pdb files should be also packaged together. Should I use the build configuration "RelWithDebInfo" instead?
  • Should I build the package for master branch only?
  • The binary package with data is quite big, about 500MB. If we build binary package for every commit, then I think appveyor may complain about it. Are there any way to fix it? For example upload latest nightly build package to bintray or SourceForge and overwriting older nightly builds.
