Since Eric said that they consider this feature for future ND projects, I wonder if TLOU will have a ping filter toggle? What do you think?

I hope they release a TLOU MP beta soon, so that we can find out what they have in store for us.

They'd be silly to not release a MP beta.

Arne said that they will release more info about the MP soon.

It's official. Santa isn't real. I didn't ask for anything else. I sat on your lap, I left cookies and milk. You didn't deliver Santa!!!

Here's a technical explanation of the "curving bullets" phenomenon (getting hit behind cover/walls):

http://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/Source_Multiplayer_Networking#Lag_compensation

There are a couple of ways to solve this:

1) Minimize lag (i.e. ping filter toggle, F2P, free DLC maps & no DLC toggle, consolidated playlists).

 

2) Let the clients perform hit detection. This shouldn't be an issue, considering the fact that PS3 consoles cannot be hacked (jailbreak/CFW) and connect to the PSN without repercussions (you will get a permanent console ban if you do this).

Packet tampering can be prevented if the communication is encrypted in the first place. I presume that ND cannot program this one due to "technical difficulties", but it should be a given for future projects.

Since ND added the stat hat toggle, how about a ping filter toggle as well?

How would it work:
On = find players with 5 connection bars (100ms maximum latency)
Off = find players ASAP regardless of latency

For parties it would work exactly like the DLC toggle -> only the party leader's toggle/latency would matter.

 

If the leader is from EU, it would find players from neighbouring EU countries. If the leader is from NA, it would find players from the US, Canada etc.

Who else wants this feature?

edit:

ND's response here -> http://community.us.playstation.com/t5/UNCHARTED-3-Drake-s-Deception/Region-lock-toggle-SUPPORT-for-...


what? in english please. and yes i am american and hate fighting those europeans, they are lag.
