    Hey FaustKnight! I'm sorry that it's crashing like that. Could you send me the log located at C:/Users/~yourusername~/AppData/Roaming/.projectswg/launcher/log.txt as a private message? It'll help me understand what's going on a bit better. Here's a tutorial for how to view AppData on Windows.

    Since the Forwarder handles the UDP communication that the client is complaining about in that message, the Forwarder would be the place to implement that packet. Holocore just sends the data via TCP into a buffer on the Forwarder.


    I also believe the purpose of the packet is to request slower transmission of data (which we ignore), but I could be wrong.

    There are two options when it comes to adding objects to the world. The first is as you describe with modifying the appearance, and pushing it with the clientdata. The second is to create the object server-side using something called buildouts.


    If you choose the first option, just send the updated file(s) to us (Undercova or myself) and once we verify it won't break anything nor be otherwise inappropriate we'll include it for download.

    Obviously there's a lot to think about. I'm not 100% sure the best way to go about doing it. Maybe, if we ever come to that bridge, we could get the community together to discuss how to cross it. Touche, good sir, touche.

    I don't mean to dismiss your idea, I think it's a great one. If we answer some of those questions, it's one of those things we can begin to implement immediately rather easily.

    Is it possible to ever get to lvl 100 ? Would being able to achieve lvl 100 hurt or help us ?

    Absolutely, could go a lot higher than that too (32,000 or so). If the level cap was increased, how would the level up work? What types of things would that unlock? Should experience after 90 only be granted for profession specific quests?

    Thanks for the heads up, fixed.


    Long term we have a solution to this happening, and I'll be sure to notify everyone on twitter and the forums when it's up. Until then, if I forget and something weird happens with passwords, please continue what you're doing and report it!

    My fork won't work without the latest forwarder. How often does that exception come up? It should be very rare, and only if you try to connect before Holocore begins booting completely (There's a race condition somewhere, the only side effect is a failed log in attempt). If you wait 10 seconds or so after Holocore starts it should work.


    It's possible this has to do with the connection.. although I'm curious if perhaps it's an issue with commands (especially combat commands) being queued too long. One way to test is if your ping goes up in the debug dialog, or if you were to talk a lot in chat (or tell yourself a lot, without any combat) without causing this issue.

    just used the standard Commando Focused Fire 3 with a level 40 Commando, I had been kiting it for a fair while before it actually killed me, I got DC'd, then died while DC'd, waited 30 mins for the clone to activate, went afk outside the clone facility at Nym's to do something came back and the toon was dead again with the kimogila stood over me


    When you say DC'd, do you mean crash?

    Just pushed another update (1.1.6) with some stability fixes for the forwarder (hidden part of the launcher that handles connections to Holocore).

    To tune the speed of zone in, the interval now represents a window of time (default is 1000ms). The maximum packets is the number of packets that can be sent within that window (default is 400). Since the client's buffer only holds 400 packets at a time, I suggest changing the interval to tune (mine is set to 800ms). An easier way to figure out whether or not you should increase or decrease the interval is by measuring how long it takes you to zone in.


    Let me know if there are any issues!
