Re: [B3.1] Long delay when changing from/to full-screen mode

I wondered if my unusual monitor or gfx card setup was the cause. I changed to using one gfx card (GeForce 260), and one monitor (2560x1600). It made no difference. I tried on a different PC (Win7, i7 4770, 8GB, GeForce 760, MP on HDD). The times fell from 50 and 25s to 6 and 3s. More powerful/expen...

Re: Official Petition we need Unlimiter Tool

Flickering textures when blockmixing has been highlighted as one of its major problems. In early 2008 (when TMN ESWC was the only release version of Stadium) I posted about possible technical solutions in Overlapped textures glitch . Since that's a limited-access subforum, and the most interesting l...

Re: [B3.1] Long delay when changing from/to full-screen mode

No, I explicitly mentioned that thread in the first post to point out it's not the same symptoms. My mouse, desktop, and other applications remain responsive. Even in the case of switching MP from full-screen to windowed, although MP still occupies its monitor for the first half of the delay, I can ...

Re: [B3.1] Long delay when changing from/to full-screen mode

I looked closer at all the disk activity during a minimised -> full screen transition using Sysinternals Process Monitor . There are frequent disk accesses throughout a period of about 24.5 seconds except for a 1 second gap starting about 3 seconds after the start. The files being accessed are mainl...

[Fix][B3.1] Long delay when changing from/to fullscreen mode

I'm getting quite long delays when switching ManiaPlanet between fullscreen/windowed/minimised. For example, switching from fullscreen to windowed takes nearly a minute. Timings from when in MP's initial menu: full screen -> minimised = 0s minimised -> full screen = 25s full screen -> windowed = 50s...

A screenshot without the perpetrator's login means little; using a fake nickname is trivial. Get the login.

Re: Netcode / Hitbox / Hitscan changes break international p

It is possible to connect around the world with 2ms ping. I've seen it. Even at the speed of light, 2ms ping (i.e. 1ms out, 1ms back) only gets you 300km. For a location on the opposite side of the planet you can't do better than about 130ms round trip (surface travel, 40,000km. Or 25,000km and 80m...

Re: TrackMania2: Centralised News about the Game

you bought this game 6 times and spend 240€ on it? useless? You could try using your brain a little. I said I have six accounts, not that I bought it six times. TMU is currently available for 10€ . I bought TMU 3 times, at prices as low as £5 (yes, TMU used to be available for less money than it is...

Re: TrackMania2: Centralised News about the Game

did that really said Quiksilver? Yes, the quote is from 2009-09-14, in direct reference to the post I linked earlier: Official Mode Cheater . I doubt if he is mis-remembering, since the posts are separated by only one day. By the way, I have six TMU accounts. Are you calling everyone with more than...
