Is there a way to log out ghosted players after UT 3 crash ?

Post  Lirezh on Tue Jul 05, 2011 10:07 pm

This happened right now to me on sniper, but happens all the time since the latest UT3 patch.
UT crashes from time to time (usually on map switch) and then I can not connect for full 20 minutes because my old player shows logged in the server.

Is there a way to log out ghosted players, or can you make it the server kicks dead connections after a minute or so ? 60 seconds lag is more than is good anyway Wink

The latest UT3 patch (2.1) was released on 5th May 2009. That means, that you are fighting with this problem since more than 2 years now? Something must be wrong with your PC from software (driver?) point of view.

I'm surprised. I have never heard about this problem. When my UT3 crashes I restart it and everything is fine. What could happen is a disconnect due to "duplicate login". This will take a while before you can reconnect. But that's another story, look here

Of course there is a way. But this requires a [CBS]-member to get informed about this problem. Then you will be kicked from the game and immediate reconnect is possible.

This questions points to the admin. I don't know if this can be done automatically.

Hey guys,

I think Mike is right with his advice to check for driver issues first. I have heard about lots of guys that experience those ut3.exe crashes. On my old Notebook, I got this too from time to time. The new one does not make that kind of trouble..

There is, as far as I know, no way to detect a crashed client from server. We have the "kick idlers" option active, that will kick players after a match, in case they did not play active. This option removes crashed accounts the same way - unfortunately only at next map load. I don't know how this could be timed - I found nothing in the server options for this.

If members are connected to the forum, write in shoutbox or send a pm in case you stuck again. Should be no problem if one of us is online.
Don't forget to send a notification at the same way to the member, if you could connect again without a kick from the server - if not, you may wonder why you have been removed from a winning game Twisted Evil

If you have installed UT3 on a windows Vista / 7 system under Program Files, you should consider moving the game to another partition and give full control to the game folder for all users. This could help you out of windows security based trouble.

Good luck Smile

Hi friends,

my crashes seem to be the same (duplicate login are not very often at my home) and then i can't reconnect but i'm not still logged on server so no need to kick me cause i'm not logged in. now you say, Killya, i did not move my game from Program Files, i will do it but sure not before meeting ^^
cheers
