Tanks drive faster after 10Minutes

Post by mythos » Wed Mar 07, 2012 1:04 pm

Hi,

we play at work matches with 15 and 45 minutes in the break in our network. We play the default map 2 vs 2.

Since our colleagues get new laptops (Dell Precision 4200) with Win7 64Bit, iCore7 and 8 GB RAM their tanks start driving faster after aprox. 10-15 minutes playing as ours.

After playing about 30-40 minutes their tank is maybe twice as fast as ours. We use WinXP 32Bit, they use Win7 64Bit-Version. We changed the Server Client (32/64Bit), but that doesnt help.

So the first 15 minutes we score and lead and after that time they start to run over us :rip: due to their lightspeed :shock:

Did anyone else had that problems? I didnt find any solution yet. Ill try the 32Bit Client in XP Mode, for their laptops soon. I am not very firm in bzserver configurations.

Do you have the -handicap option enabled on your server?

If -handicap is enabled, that will make tanks with lower score faster. So if you have that option in your server config, remove it. If you didn't have that, then it's some other issue.
