Summary0006826: Timeout on map change

Since 1.3 many players on our server time out after a map change to a bigger map. Download has finished, you spawn and suddenly timeout.

Steps To Reproduce

Start a race server with big maps (filesize) and change maps. Many people will timeout after having downloaded the map.

TagsNo tags attached.

Revision 3747/3748 did not change anything. When testing I timeouted while downloading the map or better say the download stopped and did not continue for no reason.

This is definitely the map download and not resources download?
(The progress box will say 'Map' in it)

I guess it will be general resources but I am not quite sure. Atleast it happens at every map change in race.
I am currently observing it.

It seems to fail at map download progress. At mapchanges (not @connect) the map loads like 100kB, then stops, then again 100kB. This goes on for some time but after some time it stops completely and times out.

I confirm it, because its bad
bug in 1.3
i'm optimize my scripts/change race gamemode to original, off my scripts
Just only "race" gamemode working
and when big map changed, all players - timedout, and ping +1000
with the new upgrade, nothing changed
Pls fix it

It is a map download problem, and not a resource problem. (Resources download great, fast and smooth. Maps download slow, freezing and with timeouts sometimes.)

Its most important thing to fix, more than anything else... Why MTA devs concentrate to less interesing task? At least just return the map downloading back to 1.2 style, if you cant fix the actual right now, and we would be happy

Can't the maps be downloaded via TCP, I ask?

I totally agree with Feche. It is a punch in the face of many server owners that people actually work on 1.4 or bugfixes for MTA 1.3 functions while there is a bug which splits the MTA:SA community into 2 parts. Many servers are not able to upgrade because ofthis and we literally get NO information about ANYTHING related to this problem. We do not even know if somebody is working on it, nor has it been set to confirmed after having it confirmed by many people here.

I am kinda disappointed.

drifterCZ, it seems fixed for most others, so your problem could be something else. Please add a new issue with exact details

Map download is really slower than before but no timeouts on mapchange. Can confirm this drifter. Also the map download seems to be slow on nightlies as I am the only one to experience this - release builds seem to work fine.

Downloads on my server are much faster for all players.
