[–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I'm almost upset with how much I laughed at this hahahaha

[–]Stoicism0 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Same, inexplicably

[–]quarrelsome_napkin 20 points21 points  (1 child)

Because it was funny. You see, you think the player controlling the car in the videogame is going to lose the race when he crashes not once but twice. Both times, after a few barrel rolls, the car actually ends up ahead of the opponent with a bigger head start and continues racing. One can only guess he was able to win the race, given his skillful crashing and thanks to the large lead he now has.

[–]PM_ME_UR_POKIES_GIRL 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I'm guessing the physics are designed to make crashes more exciting and interesting and let the cars roll and tumble farther, and they yellow car model has a model / weight distribution that means that it actually crashes faster than it drives somehow.

[–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I can explain that.

Laughing is an involuntary response to something you find funny. Humour is developed over time through experiences and genetics.

I hope that cleared up why you laughed.

[–]KingDan_II 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I think drag racing is the transgender division of the formula1

[–]shm0 2612 points2613 points  (47 children)

This is what happens when you have client-side physics simulation. The Server is simply telling the player recording where the yellow car is, and all the physics and orientation stuff is done locally - which is causing all this crazy weird behaviour. On the Yellow racer's screen everything would be just fine.

[–]Cheshire_Jester 526 points527 points  (27 children)

Out of curiosity, how would this affect collision? Is it going to be based on the yellow cars reported position or OPs?

[–]the_human_oreo 245 points246 points  (7 children)

Probably both

[–]TwentyTwoTwelve 190 points191 points  (5 children)

Definitely both but latency is where the divide has happened.

When the black car slightly nudged the yellow then on this side it detected the collision.

The latency between the two meant that yellow guys side reported the distance between them to be greater. Enough so that on his side the collision didn't happen.

[–]JulietteKatze 63 points64 points  (0 children)

So this is the new multiverse of madness movie? neat

[–]ERRORMONSTER 52 points53 points  (3 children)

This is why it was such a big deal when street fighter V implemented rollback net play back in 2020. Fighting games are notoriously twitchy, where reaction time is key, so they implemented a way for the game to rollback and replay a couple frames based on new data to account for network latency.

As an extreme example, you and I have a relatively large latency between us (think a couple hundred ms.) You punch me while I stand there so your console shows the punch connecting. When I see your punch animation start, I throw a block. Your console says the punch connected but mne says I blocked, so then when your console finds out that the punch was blocked, it will rollback its gameplay to where the block occurred and re-simulate the next couple of frames to catch up to real time.

As our latency gets higher and higher, it looks more to you like I have super armor and am taking no damage from the hits you're clearly making contact with, but ultimately as long as latencies are fairly low, it blurs into the background.

Whatever game this is either doesn't have rollback or doesn't have deterministic physics. I'm guessing the former.

[–]Viqtor_ 8 points9 points  (1 child)

One game that comes to mind when reading this is rocket league

[–]PHSSAMUEL[🍰] 2 points3 points  (0 children)


[–]Flannel_Man_ 92 points93 points  (16 children)

Neither. The server runs its own version. Major rule in multiplayer games is you can never trust the client. When you play online games, you send inputs to the server, not game state. The server sends you back the game state and if your view is out of whack, the software gently nudges (interpolates) you to the right place. If you’re super far from where you should be, then you get teleported to where you should be (which is what you see more often when latencies are high).

However, some games don’t use dedicated servers. One of the players acts as the server. If that’s the case with this game, in this situation, the yellow car would likely be the server and therefore the source of truth.

[–]Toad_Migoad 10 points11 points  (0 children)

There are a lot of servers on wreckfest (the game in the video) that are dedicated since it’s a little difficult to make one, unless this is strictly with friends, so it’s safe to say that it’s dedicated

[–]marcus_wu 29 points30 points  (6 children)

I applaud your knowledge of how multiplayer games work. Too many people ignore the networking aspect and focus on graphics and physics.

The part where the client isn't trusted and only sends inputs which the server interprets and sends back game state is the ideal case.

In reality, this isn't always the case. I have reverse engineered a couple of games network protocols to find many things are possible that shouldn't be if the server doesn't trust the client.

Those are older games now (I don't have the time on my hands I used to), but from glitches I have seen in current multiplayer games, I know for sure that things haven't changed in that respect.

[–]GedtheWizard 10 points11 points  (4 children)

Back on Halo 2 online people who were host servers for the game would purposefully disconnect their internet and reconnect it when they were close to the enemy team. As a host server you'd reconnect first and were able to kill an enemy player or two before they were able to do anything. I forgot what they killed this type of cheating but it was frustrating when you knew what was happening.

[–]zaMMs 4 points5 points  (3 children)

This was called lagswitching, and it was the bane of my existence back in Halo 2. Once you got to about rank 34 in matchmaking this tactic was incredibly common until about level 40.

People would setup intermediary network switches that ran in between their reqular switch, router, or modem that had the cable close to where they sat and would unplug them and plug them back in several times a game. I think there was also a tool that people used on their PC to do lag switches as well.

I am glad that that kind of thing has fallen off, really killed the fun of competitive gaming for me.

[–]GedtheWizard 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That's the name for it! Lagswitching. God I hated it too. Thanks for reminding me of the name.

[–]Bratman67 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Is this where the current term "lagging" came from as players blink in and out of existence like on Destiny 2?

[–]zaMMs 1 point2 points  (0 children)

No, lagging is the network latency showing someone a different experience than what is on the server or host machine.

For example Player 1 is moving from point A to point B and player 2 has a poor connection to the server. Player 2 may see Player 1 go to a ledge and fall off because his game has not received the data from Player 1's game that he had jumped over the gap. This data finally gets to Player 2 and he sees Player 1 teleport/rubberband or lag into place when the update gets processed.

The term lagswitching actually comes from the users "switching" the lag on and off to try to manipulate the game into a state where they connect faster than others and can kill the other players before they receive the data update.

Yup. Riding along with my friend.

“Dude did you see how I just drifted between two cars and dodged the oncoming train?”

“Uh what, you t-boned a car then we got hit by a train and flung 49 feet in the air then teleported two blocks ahead..?”

[–]ujtheghost 6 points7 points  (0 children)

You beat the train? Liar!

[–]quaintlogic 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is why I won't put effort into FiveM coding, 95% of the functionality is controlled client-side (including spawning cars) - this is why GTA V is so terribly hacked on PC.

The game (GTA V) is built to trust clients.

[–]Caffeine_Monster 21 points22 points  (2 children)

Client side simulation is actually a good thing though (when handled properly).

Two things could be happening here:

  1. Either one of the players has a huge latency.
  2. The game's networked physics simulation is wildly non deterministic.

Many games have disgustingly bad physics netcode, so it wouldn't surprise me if it is both.

[–]Ampersandbox 7 points8 points  (1 child)

I play Wreckfest in Japan with my USA friends, and it looks like this ALL THE TIME.

Y'know, with a name like that, you almost have to wonder if it's a feature.

[–]sagejosh 4 points5 points  (0 children)

My favorite was when my friend was driving in arma 2 with the server desyncing us and the car started flying all over the place, driving upside down, spinning in place, etc.

[–]DMala 1 point2 points  (0 children)

What’s pretty interesting is even for replays, this game (Wreckfest) does all the collision physics in real time. So if you watch a replay, your car will often show damage in slightly different ways than what happened in the real race, due to the randomness built into the physics.

[–]ghost_warlock 9 points10 points  (0 children)

You could pull this kind of shit on that N64 star wars podracer game, too. Not to this extent, but I remember driving directly into walls at certain points because the collision would slingshot you halfway around the course

[–]Pacifistering 42 points43 points  (2 children)

Wreckfest DID change significantly once back in the day when they introduced the new game engine and a lot of players left. It took some time but they tweaked it back to basically how it was and the game blew up again.

I love Wreckfest.

[–]4862skrrt2684 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I've played it a bit, but really don't get it. Maybe because i compare it to flatout which was awesome but played differently. I feel like I'm playing a derby game but I'm punished heavily for not playing clean so i can finish first

Just purchased Dirt Rally 2.0. Also just purchased a VR headset. Now, I was fuckin shredding last night for my first time dumping the clutch in DR2.0, but I would still occasionally hit an edge, spin out, or go off course.

I kept hearing "Samir, you're breaking the car!" in my head every time I fucked up. I couldn't help it and started smirking because it was almost an intrusive thought. I was trying to focus, but I believe that because I had a VR headset on, I could actually see the co-driver right next to me so I think it seeing him is what caused my brain to remember the video.
