New MTA Resource: Max FPS kicker

Postby [DRuG]NikT on Sat Jul 09, 2011 4:02 pm

Over the past few months, I have tried & failed at getting players to understand that by having their fps above the locked maximum of 54 fps gives them an unfair advantage.

There are quite a few players that for different reasons, run their game at 80 or 150 FPS - this makes their game smoother, sure, but it also gives them an unfair advantage in races. As a result, today I was beaten by someone with 150fps, on a straight - both with infernus & nos, i was accelerated away from at around double my speed. More frames per second = more movement forward per second... ie. unfair advantage.

As a result, I have modified a pingkicker resource and added the feature of Max FPS kicker - the ping kicker module is disabled however the FPS kicker will kick them.

Some suggestions if you are affected by this:
- Disable/fix any special "turbo", "cool n quiet" or overclocking modifications to your BIOS/motherboard
- The "AMD CPU bug" can cause higher fps - the fix is available at http://support.amd.com....
- Close/uninstall any modifications you have to your game (any that intentionally give advantage are a bannable offense really)

This resource should not be stopped or modified by any other admins on DRuG without the express consent of yours truly, [DRuG]NikT.

Remember if you are affected by this, if you find it annoying, think how annoying it is when your unfair advantage helps you win a race over an honest player's hard work.

Thanks to this new resource, as an admin, you won't have to do anything, the resource will kick them.

It will give them a 60 second warning, though, which gives you a chance to direct them to the "server feedback" area of the forums, to this thread... which has suggestions that may help them fix their fps. :evilgrin:

Could I suggest a small change perhaps? Only if its possible of course.

Rather then a straight out kick for an infringement perhaps make it a time based check.

IE if ping > 60 more then 3 times in 15 seconds then kick. Or something similar.

This would allow for half second spikes to not force kick you 60 seconds later but would still kick legitimate ping abusers.

Not that I mind either way of course.

There's an issue that actually breaks my balls..
For an unknown reason when you minimize mta (I use to minimize it often to check facebook or something else) the fps raises exceeding 50 fps, resulting in a kick when back on game..

Now I have to quit and rejoin everytime if I don't want myself kicked.. :(
Is there a way to fix this? I am not the only one with this problem.. The fps kicker is a great solution, I am not against it, there are players with that "advantage".. I just want this issue fixed.. ;)

EDIT: Sorry for posting twice.. [blush]
Seems that the "Delete post" button doesn't work..

EDIT (Stijger): There ya go, Dani. Double post deleted ;)

dark: we don't kick for ping - this resource is only for people exceeding the maximum FPS.

dani: no, I'm afraid the mod is actually doing what it should - if your game goes to 150 frames for any reason I am glad it is kicking... when your game goes to 150 frames, it affects the performance of the server.. not to mention it's hard for us to know if you're frame hacking or just tabbed out - either way, you shouldn't really be AFK/away from game when connected.... simply rejoin when you finish whatever it is you do on your desktop.

Hey Nikt,

The mod is a good thing indeed, but just curious is there a possiblity to have a fpslimiter (like SAMP??)
Cause i wouldn't know why i sometimes got too high fps (my computer isn't that good :P)
And are ofcourse willing to limit the fps if possible.

Greetz,

There is SAPT by [DRuG]Slick - the single player version has a button that will limit you to 50, which is about the average in game. It's in the San Andreas tools download area on http://drugcrew.com.
