Summary0001249: The ping on the scoreboard shouldn't refresh so often

It refreshes at least twice a second, which is too much, I think.

Why not have it refresh like it did in MTA: Vice City (about once per two seconds)?

Unless, of course, there's a reason it does this.

TagsNo tags attached.

It refreshes more often as we need accurate pings for our new ping compensation code on shooting, though twice a second might be too often.

Actually, no. It depends on the number of players. If you're the only one, you get one twice a second, if there are 10 players, you get one each 5th second.

Wouldn't being pinged constantly like that cause you to lag more?

actually chrml i rewrote this.. its twice a second regardless of players atm (unless uve changed it since i did).

No zircon.. twice a sec of tiny ping packets is nothing compared to the pure/key sync

I'll change it to once a second so it's only 32 packets a second for a busy server with 32 players.

maybe we should just dump it all in 1 packet?

Players will receive pinglists every 3 seconds now regardless of the playercount.
