As I mentioned here
Dogfight Elite 1.3.0 released! - Dogfight Elite Forum
Dogfight Elite 1.3.0 has been released and it is making its way throughout the stores.
Meanwhile it updates, you won't be able to see players that haven't updated.

A quick summary of what's in this version and why I begin this thread.

Dogfight Elite 1.3.0 is the work of over 8 months of me focusing on changing the whole game inside out. Visually, you won't see many changes or new features. You will see that I added Flak at several places in the terrain and little more.

Internally, I rewrote 90% of the game. It's almost a whole new code base. My main focus was to fix many issues caused by lag and update a code base that had grown over a decade.

The main difference is that the multiplayer is not only predicted, but now the server itself has a copy of the whole game into memory. This is technically known as the server having state authority.

What does this mean to you? Well, you shouldn't be seeing any player suddenly jump from one place in front of you and then behind you. Anyone attempting to use a lag switch or having a bad connection, will not impact the experience of other players. That person will get disconnected or repositioned to where he/she should be.

Although this seems like a small change, it meant I had to rewrite the whole multiplayer code. And that's most of the game itself.

I'm pretty sure with over 50,000 (50 thousand) lines of code changes, I screwed up something. So please, understand this version won't be perfect.

Use this thread to report everything you see wrong, so that for version 1.3.1 I fix everything you report.

I have to play with the settings. With this update, you only send the "input" to the server and it is the server the one that moves your airplane. That's why it's impossible to use a lag switch or anything similar. Many games are now done like this, specially for shooter games.

The problem is that if the connection lags, your plane moves and shakes until it gets the right movement from the server. I have to move around a bunch of parameters until i hit the sweet spot so that the prediction matches the server.

Crash function seems to be worse
Planes and tanks seem smaller than usual at a distance
Pilot crosshair seems very close to the pilot (also its always been too dim in my view and doesn't stand out well enough against backgrounds)
Aiming is slightly different not sure how to explain it yet except for it feels like I'm dead on but no affect
Train game glicth showed train 100 percent at first tunnel but we lost game
Crash on spawn in
Have to report twice to reload and sometimes doesnt reload bombs
Takes 20 hits to kill top ranked players
tanks getting double hits from shells. The shells are registering twice
Bombs registering multiple hits

- The bomb buttom is fixed already, go to google play and download latest update.
- Target "dim" it's always being like that and on settings graphics you can change the target color to something you feel it is better. That was the reason why on snow terrain by default the aim target would go black and white on the other terrains.
- Planes and tanks are the same size as always, no changes there.
- Train mission is glitchy, trying to fix it today.
- Bombs displaying multiple times... same thing. Trying to fix it today.

Thank you Zup for all the hard work and many hours you put into this update. Bugs are to be expected and I feel fairly confident you will work them out.

If this update reduces lag and levels the playing field of players who have been taking advantage of lag in my humble opinion, it's a huge success. (provided you also work out the bugs created by update)

Too many players have been taking advantage of lag for far too long thinking they're awesome but they simply lag.

yeah this update so far has been a disaster. The main problem is that once it hits one single error, everything begins failing at random part of the code. So "tank doesn't work" in reality the problem may be completely unrelated to tanks. I have to go over every possible situation and try to reproduce. There are million of combinations that's why I missed so many until it went public.

As for the good news, i believe I fixed a bunch of serious ones already, i'm releasing a new update to android and steam in about 30 minutes. Check your app stores to see if you've got an update.

Hey Zuperman! Thank you for your efforts on trying to bring a better experience for all of us. The new update like you said is “uff” very buggy. Not sure if we are helping you or overwhelming you if we try to mention every single bug we encounter; but here it goes. There are so many that it is hard to keep track of them but will try to mention the ones I remember.
.

1. Bombing the hangers WW1 planes will not reload bombs when back at base, they did the clock reload 2 times but no bombs at the end.
.
.
2. In games the movement of the planes are slower and the up and down motion its force; plane tries to keep going up. If you move to be on your side the plane freezes and keeps on going on that direction until it crashes and even, then it keeps going. Sometimes the camera angles change randomly on their own. When you are approaching to bomb or aim at enemy plane you lose control of the plane. All this crazy movement s of plane or camera make me dizzy.  (Not good at all)
.
.
3. Bomber mission in WW2 the bombers bomb but they do not destroy the hangers and game will not end.
.
.
4. Tank is very bouncy and if you go over hills it’s a wild ride. When you aim with the keyboard the movement is too fast and if you use the mouse, it’s too slow.
.
.
5. Pilot when on the ground moves much slower now.
.
.
6. In the capture of the ships game plane crashes when you try to land and when you drop your bombs they go to the sides and fast.
.
.
7. Few times I get the protect the bomber WW1 mission and there are no bombers to protect lest me fly my plane till I get to enemy base and then I lose connection.
.
.
8. Now planes from the same team crash on the runway if we are taking off or landing together.
.
.
9. Bomb camera takes a twirl before hitting the ground.
.
.
10. Tank torrent moves fast when you use keyboard and slow with the mouse.

For me, the previous version may also come back, it is not playable.
1) The plane is very unstable and almost impossible to aim.
2) I was in the bomber and the first 4 hangars were destroyed, the red one went out and the next 4 hangars could not be destroyed, the bombs do not register.
3) In the bomber game > If the enemy flies close to the bomber, the bomber will crash.
4) In the submarine not all bombs register, you drop 4 and 1 or 2 register. With someone with 2 bombs it sometimes registers 4. (German side)
5) When bombing hangars or aircraft carriers, your bombs will fall 2 or 3 at a time if you push 1 off. (joystick)
6) Tanks can hardly aim with the cannon anymore, almost doesn't rotate and when it rotates a little it sometimes goes in the wrong direction. Aiming the cannon up and down is also no longer possible.

i've sent 1.3.1 update out and it fixes most of the issues mentioned here

as for the reloading, it does reload, they just don't display on 1.3.0. So it shows as 0 bombs but if you press the bomb button it will refresh and get the proper number. In any case, this is already fixed on 1.3.1 update. Hopefully it is much better.

  1. bomber game glitch - bomber bombed base then proceeded to land on the hill beyond the base allowing what would have been the losing team to shoot the bomber until it was down and they won the game
  2. zeppelin game glitch - similar to bomber zeppelin bombed base and proceeded and stopped on hill beyond base game ending in draw
  3. my plane the Messerschmidt or something close carries three bombs but only two ever hit target (no i am not missing)
  4. crash system still seems jacked up
  5. crash on spawn in still
  6. when firing plane seems to pull up or down slightly you have to fire and continue to move plane in opposite direction as it is pulling
